You will love the peace and quiet here at Murray Downs Marina. Situated a stones throw from Swan Hill you can fish, swim or just relax in the beautiful river setting. Great for families, couples or friends wanting to have a relaxing stay or a get together.
Please note: This is stationary accommodation not hire /drive
As this is a boat it may not be suitable for small children and toddlers.

The space

Our floating apartment is a houseboat moored in our private marina just 1km over the bridge from Swan Hill. Situated in a peaceful river setting you can enjoy fishing,swimming or just relaxing on the boat. We are very close to the main township of Swan Hill but still enjoy the peace and quiet of being out of town.

Guest access

You will have the whole boat to yourselves.

Interaction with guests

We live on the property so if there are any problems we are only too happy to help.

Other things to note

We do have two dogs, Hektor , a very friendly German Shorthair Pointer and Millie, a cute little Maltese Shitzu and a cat, Puss, so we ask that you please drive slowly when entering or exiting the property as Hektor in particular has a bad habit of running out to greet cars without looking!
There is absolutely no tolerance to excessive noise or parties. Also please note that other boats in the marina are privately owned so must not be boarded or interfered with.

Perfect location for a relaxing retreat, the boat has everything you could possibly need. The sunsets and the spa are amazing, and Jo and Greg were fantastic hosts Would recommend :)

We had a fantastic stay recently on Jo’s houseboat. It was even better than described, with everything we needed. The 2 bathrooms were very convenient, as was a full kitchen. Our kids thought it was the best thing ever, especially the spa!! Great pub not far down the road with beautiful meals. Would stay here again for sure!

Such a clean well appointed and tastefully decorated place to stay. A houseboat air bnb is a nice change. We were gently rocked to sleep after a bbq and red on the upper deck. Thanks jo. We highly recommend this for a stay

The Murray Downs House Boat was an experience. It was a lot bigger than we imagined, like a small apartment. The amenities were very good and suited our party quite well. Jo was amazing to deal with, and quite happily answered my dozen questions with no issues. We cannot wait to find a time to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the BBQ and spa/upstairs deck.

Thanks Jess, It is great here all the year round but much better in the warmer weather to fully appreciate our beautiful Murray River! We look forward to you coming and staying with us again!

Jo was a great host. We were able to combine rest and work in a really idyllic setting; the bird song in the morning and the serenity was fantastic. The quiet lapping of the river on the hull of the boat was very soothing

I am a lover of the outdoors and traveling and together with my husband we own and run a private marina on the Murray River at Swan Hill. I enjoy travelling and spending time on the Murray relaxing with friends and family.
When travelling I like to get among the local people and learn about their customs and cultures.
