A modern and stylish guesthouse with light breakfast included. The house is fully surrounded by tropical gardens, making it private and secluded. The house is air-conditioned and has a fireplace. Bedsheets and towels provided. Fast NBN wireless internet. The guesthouse is on the same property as the well known 'Bamboo Land Nursery & Parklands'. The property is on the fresh water Burrum River which is great for swimming and canoeing. Canoe available.
“This is a very nice place to relax in the middle of the (bamboo-) forest. It is surrounded by plants, you can see many birds through the windows and a lot of cute tiny frogs came to say hello on the veranda. Coming there as a German from a big city, I was scared of some creepy crawlies first, but then spend all evening on the veranda, because it was so beautiful. And nothing attacked me ;-) Everything is very clean and they even had a high chair for our little one. It's a shame we didnt see the bamboo land, because it was pouring rain the whole time we stayed (only two nights unfortunately). But still, we had a very good time at the house and we can definitely recommend it!”

“We had a beautiful holiday at Burnett’s rest. Everything we needed was available to us. The home is absolutely lovely. True peace! We loved using the bbq to cook our lunches, and sitting on the front deck listening to the birds (before retiring to the outdoor day bed for a midday nap). We went fishing and swimming at the beach every day, just down the road! We couldn’t fault a thing. Great memories in a great place. Thank you, Toni!! p.s. the bakery down the road makes an exceptional banana bread”
TESTIMONIALS:- We had an amazing stay, it's a beautiful spot! (Amanda 1-5 July'17) Thank you very much it was an amazing experience the kids even caught a fish! (Leanne 5-9 July'17) The Boat House is ON the Burrum River....literally. This is a fisherman's paradise-fish from the large overhanging deck, moor your boat in front of the house, head out to the mouth of the Burrum River or cruise the river & fish to your hearts content. Beautifully furnished home to enjoy a tranquil getaway.
“Definitely a 5 star experience. Such a pristine and relaxing spot literally on the river. Gazing up at the Milky Way while dropping in a fishing line off the deck in the evening to hand feeding the Kookaburras and Bush Turkeys while dropping a line in the morning. The Boathouse has all the amenities you need for an easy and comfortable stay. Make sure you head into Howard for some warm and genuine hospitality. The Grand Hotel is a must and I highly recommend a visit to the local butcher and bakery. Truely a wonderful family getaway. Thank you to Tricia for sharing her beautiful place.”
