This studio apartment is a real gem and roomier than you would expect, situated over the water with a view to Hindmarsh Island. Immaculately presented, spotless with all you could need, including private deck with BBQ.We extended our stay it was that good. Martin & Esther have created an idyllic elegant (yet comfortable) holiday Haven. Thank you!

We were so impressed with everything about this accomodation. Beginning with a very personal warm welcome, the location and the pristine presentation of the studio. A private quiet spot in Goolwa with a beautiful view on the water looking towards the bridge, plus we experienced a yachting event one evening. Great.

To be honest we have only just arrived and it's raining but this accommodation is absolutely fantastic. We are right on the water with boats bobbing around in their moorings on what would normally be the front garden. The accommodation whilst small is perfectly formed with everything that would be needed for a stay of any length. The thing that...

We booked this accommodation at the last minute, as we had organised a Coorong cruise and decided to extend our Goolwa experience. The apartments facing the water were not available but we were still happy with our quiet private setting. The apartment was tastefully appointed and very clean. Our host was friendly and greeted us at the pre-arranged time. Automatic...

We booked this accomodation very last minute (night before in peak season) and felt we struck accommodation gold! My husband and I travelled with our three year old and the studio was just perfect. The sofa bed was made up for her on arrival which she just loved. :) Pristine and clean, the modern and comfy space had everything we...

Boat Haven provided us with a well equipped modern self catering studio/cabin which was ideal for a couple and daughter. Everything you need; kitchenette, dining area, nice bathroom, comfy bed. Tastefully furnished; easy parking. Close to Goolwa and regional attractions. Reasonably priced; recommended.

This well appointed studio apartment on the Murray River delta is a great place to stay. Wonderful wildlife and we could feed the birds and fish out of our window. Martin gave us use of his kayaks and bikes. It was an easy ride to Mother Duck for morning coffee and Whistlestop for dinner in the evening. Lots of things...

Classy, well appointed accommodation.It was fantastic to watch the Yatch race on Friday night whilst sitting in total comfort in the studio! Had some great meals at local restaurants, and so lovely to return to accommodation and be able to sit and enjoy the river. Esther and Martin are great hosts, very obliging, but not in any way intrusive. Well...

The room was spacious and well equipped. The view to the bridge was lovely and the swans that visited our window were amazing. Walking the trail along the river to the town centre is a must. Thanks Esther.

We really enjoyed our stay in this accommodation over the water which was very clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bbq on the deck was great for breakfast and dinner and everything we needed had been provided. We were able to use the bikes and kayaks as well and it is close to town and other facilities. We would...
