We recently spent 2 nights in this beautiful little renovated boathouse, right on one of the little marinas in Goolwa, and we absolutely loved it! Such a beautiful setting, overlooking the water and boats, and loved all the attention to detail that was provided for us in the cottage that covered all our needs superbly! The bed was so comfortable! The fire kept us lovely and warm, and we loved all the extra little treats that were available for us. Wendy and Phil were wonderful hosts, and we highly recommend taking a cruise with them on their newly renovated wooden boat "Progress". We enjoyed such a delightful time with them cruising around the harbour.
