Two story limestone house in a secure property with absolute river frontage. Large outdoor area for games while enjoying a BBQ. Located in a quiet area surrounded by bush. 10 minute drive to the centre of Mandurah. Perfect place for a getaway!

The space

Walk straight to the water with absolute river frontage from the house. This allows for activities such as fishing, crabbing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. There is a ramp 200 metres away for you to put your boat in for Serpentine River adventures, with the exit into the estuary close by. Enjoy many glorious sunsets from the front verandah. At dusk, native wildlife such as kangaroos and bandicoots can be seen grazing on the grounds. An abundance of birdlife can also be observed. Dolphins are often seen in the river. Small lake next to the house.

After staying for a weekend getaway, there are two main reasons this will be the perfect retreat for you. First, it is the right balance between experiencing South-Western Australia, and distance to Perth city. Second, the pride Elizabeth and Dave take in maintaining this self-contained home on their river-front property is invaluable, and ensured an extremely comfortable stay for me and my friends. Thanks for sharing your corner of the world with us.

We had a girls weekend away at Furnissdale and had an great time. The house was clean, well appointed and in a good location. Dave (our host) was friendly and helpful. We brought home lots of new fishing stories.

We arrived late on a cold winter's evening and Elizabeth had lit the fire for us. We walked into a beautiful, warm and cosy house, our weekend break started perfectly and continued that way. The area was quiet and the house had an amazing view and was very comfortable. Only complaint was that our stay was all too short. Looking forward to visiting again.
