Comfortable stay, relaxed atmosphere, peaceful setting - perfect!
Riverbed is a traditional family holiday home in a beautiful setting - large garden, native birds all around, close to the water (about 40 metres from the end of the drive).
Gipsy Point is a great location with a peaceful atmosphere, but only 15 minutes from Mallacoota township with a full range of services and shops. This area lends itself to relaxation, fishing, spending time on the water, reading, easy bush walking, bird watching, playing cards, cooking and generally just chilling out.
Kitchen was well equipped with a good range of utensils, furniture was comfortable and in good condition, and we all found the beds were excellent.
Car parking under cover just outside the door was convenient, and everyone appreciated the fresh homemade bread, free range eggs from the friendly chooks, and the bacon went down well with the carnivores.
Went out early the first morning to search for birds and as soon as I had stepped onto the verandah two King Parrots landed less than a metre away and proceeded to stroll up and down the hand rail. We saw more than 20 species including lyrebirds and Nankeen Night Herons from the deck-chairs.
Clean, well presented, wonderful hosts - we'll be back!
Thanks for the great review. It is such a pleasure to share 'Riverbed' with appreciative guests.
Not living up to its surroundings.
Beautiful setting, comfortable home - apart from the bed! Home is clean but kitchen cupboards grubby, the few items in the pantry sticky and out of date.
We booked for two nights B& B but got just one breakfast provided - almost out of date cereal and two rashers of bacon, four eggs, bread and the tiniest pot of jam for two people comes across as mean. Had to ask for butter, English breakfast teabags and coffee.
Four people staying here would struggle to find enough crockery to meet their needs.
A quiet and beautiful place but the property came across as being run into the ground.
Great place for a restful few days or longer if you have the time
Fantastic position overlooking the genoa river. Close proximity to boat ramp if you fish. Premises clean and tidy.
Living amidst nature
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverbed. Set amongst nature, the property was a delight. Best place to relax. No phone connection meat no distractions.
Beautiful, peaceful location
We had a great Easter at Riverbed. Particularly enjoyed feeding the parrots, watching the kangaroos and borrowing Lyn's canoe and rowboat to explore and fish on the river in front of the house.
Great peaceful getaway
Great accommodation getaway, ever so peaceful and very very comfortable. The views are excellent, the animal and bird life are sensational and if you seek a great spot to rest up, relax, unwind, walk, sit on the deck while communicating with parrots, chooks and kangaroos, or snuggle up to a wood fire, then you would struggle to find better. We had very peaceful week long break and did not want for anything. Lyn was a friendly but non obtrusive host. All good, Hope to be back.
