Just finished 8 wonderful days out on Shenanigans. Fantastic family Christmas, even the extreme storms couldn’t take... away our enjoyment of this experience. A few maintenance issues urgently needed for the boat but the lovely team back at Coomera houseboats noted our feedback and will no doubt rectify. Very comfy, plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 kids. A great way to do Christmas differently.read more

5 days of pure bliss! It was our first time hiring a houseboat and first time being on the water as a self-drive... experience, so we were nervous. However the crew gave us excellent instructions, and stayed with us for about 15 minutes on the water until we felt comfortable, and surprisingly it was much easier than we thought (and we were in the biggest boat) so don't let fear stop you. The amenities on board were fantastic, bedroom and bathrooms were clean, and the kitchen was spacious and well stocked with utensils. The peace and serenity out on the water, especially at night and in the mornings, makes this one of my favourite holiday experiences + the kids were off the devices, connecting with nature, exploring the mangroves and beaches, and spending quality time with us, which is something that money can't buy.read more

Great family experience!. Friendly & knowledgeble staff. Well apointed house boats with all the mod cons. Full... kitchen and bbq & spa on the top deck. Both the kidlets and adults had great fun cruising and stopping along beaches.. Get a crab pot and some fishing rods. Nothing like pulling out 2 huge crabs and cooking them for dinner out on the deck!read more

As novices, booking, info and instructions were easy. The boat(Aristocrat) was perfect for the two of us. An hour out... we got bogged the anchor seized and by the time we freed it the boat had drifted onto a sandbank. A phone call to base- to trim up-got us free. Coming back at low tide was sketchy, north arm of the river is pretty shallow, so trim up and full throttle. Navigation is the important part. Check the charts on your route and keep one eye on the depth sounder and the other on incoming boats. Night-time can freak you out---boats dont seem to travel with headlights, they rely on your anchor light-a 3cm yellow dot on top of your boat(dont forget to switch it on). Not that there are many boats cruising at night. But still a restless night. Fishing was good ,for us mainly after sundown. Caught every inedible fish-catfish, shark, eel and even a sea snake. Even the crabs were too small. But it was adventure. Would we do it again? Yes-probably.read more

Had a fantastic 3 night stay on the Coomera Houseboat. My wife and I with our two grandchildren really enjoyed it.... Caught a couple of legal mud crabs & a few blue crabs. Having the tender as well is a definite and the kids just loved it. Any calls/queries during our stay to Nic at the office was always answered promptly. Richard who gave us our boat orientation was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Hints: take some crab pots/fishing rods, hire a tender and explore the sand dunes at the North Bedrooms #11. Thanks to everyone at Coomera Houseboats.read more

It was a great holiday. I went with my dad and siblings for 3 days and nights. It was great to learn hot to drive a... boat and learn a bit about boating. The toilet on our boat was annoying because it was similar to a dutch toilet and there was a lot of splashback which is really annoying. considering the small size of the boat it still had 4 beds which is epic.

Not the first time we’ve been on a house boat . Some have been a little untidy, this one had just been refurbished and... was great. Service onboarding was polite and helpful, training and charts were good.But as before steering is a pain and I suppose the nature of the beat. You turn the wheel left and 15 minutes later the boat starts going left only to realise that two turns was too much and you need to go the other way. So its a bit if a ziz zac up the river. If you are thinking about a relaxed cruise, forget about it. But i knew that.The only other negative for me was the money grab on the outboard for the tender. Come on guys include it in the price. You wouldn’t want to be in a row boat in a fast moving tide trying to get back to the mothership if you happened to be a little further away.My recommendation is check out the boat if you can beforehand, some are not as tidy as the one we had.Oh yea I couldn’t find a light upstairs , bit of a pain at night . All in all good experience, thanks guysread more

I wish I had done it sooner.I also have to give a big shout out to Nick in the office who is such a wonderful man, friendly, patient and informative. If your wondering whether you should do it, just book it, the support is there and you will not regret it. We will definitely be going again. Thanks to the teamread more

I've done my 4th withdrawal successfully with no extra charges or fees paid. Thank you once again Mrs Beth Abrams you... have helped me pay my debt, I was so worried because there was no where to get money from since I lost my job with a debt of 20,000 dollars. When I started my first trade investment just with $1000 I got a profit payout of $10,560 in 6 working days then I made another investment and I was able to access my trade account to see if everything was going very well..... I'm very happy she kept to her words by helping me pay my debt now I'm debt free, I can feed my family three times a day all with the help of Mrs Beth Abrams management. I advise anyone who wants a perfect investment that is trusted and profitable with the liability of paying out profit at the due date should contact her via https://whatsapp:

Just had 4 days on the Osprey and had an awesome time. The boat was great and everything worked. The staff are very... friendly and helpful especially the young lad who put us onto the crabs! We’ve never been on the water around Coomera so the advice really helped. Also they had us out and on the water by 12 o’clock which was awesome. The only downside was the return time of 8.30 am which in my opinion is a little early.read more

Stayed on the Shangri Lah for 5 nights its a stable boat with room for 2 families comfortably. The staff were friendly... and great to deal with. The house boat itself is a bit run down and riddled with little cockroaches thru out the boat even crawling on people thru the night. The upstairs fridge is very ordinary and struggled to keep things cold . The stereo upstairs doesn't work and the boat has no navigation lights that worked as was noted by passing by boats . I ended up having to wiggle the anchor light each night so it would work. I even had to get new batteries for the TV remotes as they didn't work . But we still had a great family Easter break aboardread more
A great way to spend time with friends and family.
What an amazing experience, 4 days out on the Dusk Breaker was not long enough. Comfortably fit 6 adults with its vast... entertainment areas! Could not recommend more to anyone for an amazing holiday 🛥🥂read more
Taking Dusk breaker out for the weekeend with young kids was awesome. so much room for everyone. with 5 adults and 2... kids onboard. Dusk Breaker is the right size boat to comfortably entertain all of us, without being too big to drive.
Brilliant Job Coomera Houseboat Holidays.
We didn't want the trip to end, already looking for dates to hire again.

Another Love Boat adventure for us on our anniversary. We tried a different house boat this time and it was even better... than the first time. It just gets better. Fishing, drinking, being together and loving every second of being away from the normal life.
We had the GetAway this time and were so happy with the service and the boats that we will be back again soon.
Thanks especially to Ben. He instructed us with all his amazing knowledge of how to best operate the boat.
Very professional.
We WILL be back as all staff were 100% positive with customer service that they actually care.
Recommend Coomera House Boat any time to anyone.

This review is purely a reflection of the outstanding service and hospitality shown by Hendrik and his... team.Unfortunately our booking was impacted by the late Feb floods, but Hendrik was super proactive and offered us compassionate options that would work for our family circumstances. When I had to reschedule a range of things, this was one aspect of the trip that didn’t cause me any headaches - I am extremely grateful for that!We are very excited to replan our trip at a later date when the weather eases and if our experience this weekend was any indication I’m sure we will have a great time.read more

Fantastic time aboard the 'Aristocat' for 6 nights. The staff at Coomera Houseboat Holidays were so lovely and very... helpful. They made our experience second to none by making everything easy. Bibi is an asset to the company as front of house person. She is friendly and has a lovely manner with people and made us feel very welcome.We cruised to many places on the itinerary map and had some fabulous anchorages - the weather was a little overcast but even that wasn't a problem, because it was so relaxing just being on the water.We caught at least a dozen meals of fish and had a ball... so much so, that we've booked a boat again for around the same time next year.Perfect holiday through the best company in business. Must do for anyone wanting to try house boating .read more
Friendly staff and wonderful service. BB in the office was so friendly and extremely efficient. She was such a pleasure... to deal with for our booking .

We had such a great time cruising around the many spots we could go . Very comfortable on the Aristocat for our 6 night getaway. Caught heaps of fish and just relaxed completely. We enjoyed our time away so much, that we have booked again for the same time at the end of this year - something to look forward to. Can’t wait. 5 stars ⭐️

We had a very relaxing time. Great way to zone out and do nothing.
What a great holiday we just had with this company. We hired the Sea View and was concerned it may be just that little... bit cramped. Two big men and one lady we just weren’t sure. On boarding those concerns were gone. We had plenty of room to move about and did find spots where you could just be by yourself when needed.
You could definitely have 6 on this boat and feel ok.
The houseboat was fitted out with every thing you needed to make it enjoyable. Only negative I can think of, now I’m home, is a paring knife, the only thing that I can look back on and say was needed. So if a paring knife was my only regret it tells you just how great the house boat was.
Right from my first email to Coomera Houseboat Hire the team members went out of their way to help me in making every step easy for me. Upon arriving to check in we were met with a beautiful smile from the lady behind the counter and the smiles and helpful manner of the team didn’t stop there.
We had a blast, doing over 14hrs of motoring, seeing so many islands, bird life and sea life and the slow moving of the house boat cut the stress levels right down.
In all honesty I can recommend this business and this type of holiday for every one. I needed to satisfy a hard working Hubby who just need a rest and an active son and it’s hard finding a holiday that satisfies both these men. This holiday did it in spades.
We would really like to take the time to Thank every member of the Coomera House Boat Hire crew for making it a holiday we will not forget and we will do again.
Till next time Merry Xmas to you all and have a Safe and Prosperous New Year.

Just had an amazing weekend on the Houseboat Opensky. The boat was very clean, capable and had everything we needed.... Took a whole 10 minutes to get used to the way it sailed and was very stable. The crew were awesome and gave a thorough briefing prior to departure. After helping us depart the dock they even joined us for 15 mins helping us get used to the handling of the boat and once we were confident they headed off in the spare tender in tow. We rate the whole experience very high and will definitely be going again. Thanks again Coomera House boats. 10/10read more

Houseboat was great, staff were friendly and the info book had plenty of suggestions for spots to anchor. Houseboat is... starting to show it’s age but was clean and comfortable and had plenty of facilities except no blender 😛 . While it was costly if you split it up amongst a few people then it is value for money. Be aware of the cancellation policies as we nearly got caught out thanks toCOVID and there are a few gotchas. All in all our family had a great drama free week of water relaxation.read more
Just had 3 nights enjoying the peaceful Coomera River… such a great opportunity to relax and enjoy nature. Really well... organised and great information and support given even for first time adventurers … highly recommend!read more

Really a fabulous getaway with families and friends.James was so patient with us and really helpful. He introduced everything on the houseboat very clearly and watched us anchor once and then leave in his dinghy.We will definitely  be back again.read more

Fabulous getaway with family and friends. Totally relaxing and the boat we were on, was very well appointed and... comfortable. One thing we would recommend is more ability to use for example a coffee pod machine. Only one PowerPoint for the whole boat. We loved the top deck for sitting out and watching the sunset.Will definitely do again. Would recommend that there are at least 2 males onboard for managing navigation and the anchor etc.read more

WOW!!! I always thought a houseboat holiday would be really fun but having rented the prestige from Coomera Houseboat... Holidays I was blown away by the comfort and the ease of operation... Although we went with toddlers and young kids it was easy to manage due to the well laid out safety measures taken by Coomera Houseboats... Even in winter the reverse cycle air conditioning and heated spa assured we were always warm and comfortable... I highly recommend taking your family and or friends and giving a boat holiday a go... IT'S AWESOME!!!read more

I recently ticked an experience off of my bucket list - a houseboat weekend away.
My sister-in-law came with me. We... were both novices with no experience at boating.
We had a wonderful time - fishing, eating, drinking, listening to our fav music, reading, and relaxing. The sunrises and sunsets on the water were beautiful, and so peaceful. It was a really, really good holiday.
I chose Coomera Houseboat Holidays and I am really glad I did. Everyone there was so friendly, helpful and gave really good advice and instructions.
They have a great selection of boats to choose from and the one I chose was perfect for our holiday.
I will definitely do this again.
I recommend this to everyone 🙂

Have just had a 4 night stay on the Blue Sky houseboat with friends. A great experience with Coomera houseboat... friendly and helpful staff from the time of inquiry to booking and arriving to set sail. The onboard instructions were very well done and informative and the boat was well equipped with all the essentials and bathrooms and bedrooms clean and well presented. The living areas were spacious for 8 people and top deck BBQ and spa were well used. In all a very enjoyable four days. Thanks Coomera houseboats staffread more
Just returned from our holiday with Coomera Houseboats over the long weekend. I can't speak highly enough of the staff!... From start to finish they were friendly, professional and more than willing to answer any of my long list of questions. The services provided on our boat the 'Kea Lea' were exceptional. We had a crew of 12 adults and didn't feel like we were overly cramped or packed in. Would be a great way to spend a week on the water with the entire family.
Top stuff guys, you definitely have my vote.
Cheers,

Great Boats, affordable holiday and helpful and friendly... staff. I also love that I can have my online shopping delivered and all we have to do is turn up to find it already put away in the fridge and pantry and go. Also when we returned our pack up was casual and not rushed at all.

I had a great time. I hired the houseboat one up, and although some extra diligence was needed, I managed okay. The... biggest challenge was getting the anchor up and getting underway with due care and without extra sets of eyes to make sure everything was okay. When I boarded, everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped with cutlery and plates etc. The briefing was comprehensive and it was helpful to have navigational charts for finding my way about. There was a large cruising area and I'd certainly like to go again.read more
