“Thankyou so much for sharing your fabulous retreat. We felt very comfortable here and the ever changing surrounds add up to be a superb spot. It is sad to leave and we have enjoyed exploring the area, meeting some of the locals and spending precious time together. The perfect place for recuperation of mind, body and spirit. We hope to return some day.”

“This house is beautiful! After much searching I was so pleased to find this special place. I proposed to my girlfriend in the boat house and it will be a moment we never forget for all of our lives. We will hopefully be back some day for another slice of paradise.”

“Wow! I am speechless!! What a special place. I can honestly say that this is the best holiday we’ve ever had. As soon as we walked in the door we instantly felt relaxed and knew it was going to be a wonderful stay.I love that there are no clocks here! Time itself slowed down and it was only measured by the tides and our stomachs! Thankyou for giving this house a lovely “feel” and for filling it with quality but useable furniture, accessories and linen. The small touches, such as the soap, outdoor shower, breaky trays and hammock etc were appreciated and made for a truly memorable holiday. Nothing has not been thought of! Our toddler LOVED the sandbar and kayaks which we made use of every morning. We do not want to leave. The rain today makes it only slightly more bearable after a week of perfect mid 30’s temps. We will be back.”

“Thank you for opening up your lovely home to us. We are amazed by the location and warm feel to this house. I have had such a lovely time with my brother and grandparents. We are in complete relaxation mode and DON’T want to leave. We have fallen in love with this gorgeous home and will definitely make a huge effort to come back. Can’t wait till next time.”

“Our second visit and the place is a charming as ever! Our 8 year old chose to come back here as his birthday treat, having first visited when he was 5. An hour and a half from Sydney, but you feel like you are a million miles away. Thanks to Gai and the Ray White Kiama team for maintaining this home so well and more importantly for sharing it with so many.”

“When Bette Davis said to Paul Henreid in the movie ‘Now Voyager’,  “lets not ask for the moon, we have the stars”. They were obviously not at the Boatshed. It’s wonderful to be back!”

“We have had the most idyllic and relaxing week in your beautiful house. The weather has been warm and sunny and we could not want for anything due to your endless thoughtful touches.
Our boys aged 5 and 8, have spent countless hours running down to the boatshed, fishing for flathead (with great success), watching crabs, fish and seagulls,paddling in the kayaks, the list goes on. We have had barbecues, coffee overlooking the water, coffee at the nearby cafe, a delicious hot stone massage at Chocolat Massage around the corner and many more relaxing hours just watching the ever-changing tides. We couldn’t ask for more for a family holiday and all just 3 hours from our home in Canberra. Thnkyou for sharing our home with us. We would love to come back.”

“Thank you for sharing this beautiful place! We have delighted in every part of the property: great kitchen, long lunches in the boatshed, candle lit dinners inside and out. You have thought of everything. And Minnamurra is a hidden treasure! We’ll be back.”

“There are very few places in the world that we have not visited. There are many places in the world that we have thought we would revisit because of the appeal. However you have built a home which is exceptional in all dimensions. This “boatshed” is a touch of paradise and we can’t wait to return each year.”
