Holiday local... But feel a million miles away

We know how hard it can be to keep the kids (and adults) off their devices!
With a Houseboat Holiday, you'll never have to worry.

Never Tried a Houseboat Holiday?

Here's what our clients say

I have just spent the best Christmas ever, in the Aristocrat. It was relaxing and peaceful. Yes there was 3 kids... aboard. They loved it. Went home with new skills..boating..fishing..knots..games they'd never heard of etc. You have to be a little organised, but I would highly recommend the experience for any family. We'll definitely be doing it again.read more
A truly fantastic way to spend a time with family and friends. Their boats are well appointed and are very easy to use.... Our family have owned many large vessels and this was our first time renting with CHH’s. Extremely happy and would highly recommendread more

We would highly recommend Coomera House Boats. The staff were great to deal with, all very friendly and extremely... helpful. The house boat was clean and we had no issues with anything. Heaps of space for the kids to play and hang out or a nice little get away for mum and dad to relax and enjoy. Thanks again, we will definitely be back 🙂read more
Best holiday ever!!!! Just cruising around.
Thanks for a wonderful week aboard Seaview. We all had the best time. We fished, snorkelled, climbed and explored sand... dunes, visited the pub for lunch, dined on the flybridge at sunset and sunrise, saw dolphins, rays, turtles and kangaroos! We were welcomed and waved off by lovely, helpful and efficient staff. Thanks for an amazing time, we will be back with more guests!read more
We had a wonderful relaxing 7 nights on the Shangri Lah. Unfortunately only a couple of fish, but catching a Mud Crab &... two beautiful Sandies made up for it. I highly recommend Coomera Houseboats as they are very clean & the staff are wonderful.

Thanks Coomera Houseboats.

2nd night in and OMG. Aegean has everything and more that we would ever need. All staff great and Jason who gave... us our briefing was amazing. Thorough and easy to understand and answered all questions without making a “first timer “ like me feel like a fool. Thanks Jason 🥂.
Thinking this will be my annual holiday and we’re still “isolated “ 👍👏👏

We recently booked houseboat for a 3 night hire. as unfortunately our P&O cruise was cancelled. We were joined by some... friends giving us a total of 10 persons on the Osprey.The trip was top quality and exceeded our expectations. The boat was fantastic with ample room. The upstairs BBQ area seated 10 so meal times were always fun full of good conversations and laughs. Even as a Gold Coast local the waterways are beautiful we worth exploring as I never really knew much about this area. The staff were super friendly and extremely helpful. We are already excited about more trips in the future.Big thank you to the team at Coomera Houseboat Hire, well done 👍read more
great staff, clean boats and plenty of opportunities to have heaps of fun or do absolutely nothing. I don't often get... time away from work, but a fantastic way to spend what little time I had. i'll be back.read more
Fantastic holiday with fabulous friendly staff and clean boats. My family will be back very soon
We booked the Prestige for my husband’s 40th. We all had an absolutely amazing time! The staff were so friendly (big... thanks to Jason) and the service from when we arrived to when we left was outstanding! Even with full capacity (12) on board, there was plenty of room to fish, swim, cook, relax and even have a spa! Couldn’t recommend this place enough! Huge thanks Coomera Houseboat Holidays! See you next time! ⛵️ 🍻read more

We hired a boat (Keiko) for a few days for my 60th Bithday in November. 8 of us went aged from 11 to 72. We had a... fantastic time. From the first phone enquiry, to the first look see visit to the day we picked up the boat the service was amazing. Would definitely recommend Coomera Houseboat Holidays and we hope to do it again.read more

Thank you Coomera Houseboats, we had such a great time on 'Aristocat' for our holiday. The whole process was smooth,... from check in to check out. The boat was nice and easy to operate with plenty of room and everything we needed. We loved cruising all over the place and sleeping in a different location each night really made the holiday an adventure. It was like camping, but even better! See you next time 🙂read more
My family and I have been using Coomera Houseboats since 1999. Every trip is wonderful and the staff are wonderful. 10... different trips all turned out amazing. I was 1 year old when I went for my first trip with my parents and now yesterday I came back from my first holiday without my parents for my 22nd Birthday. Highly recommend and can't wait to get back out there!read more
The Team at Coomera Houseboats were fantastic, they were friendly and gave us alot of information to make the whole... process simple and easy. The boat had everything we needed, we will definitely be back 😀👍👍read more
We regularly holiday with Coomera Houseboats and always have a great time.
A weeks holiday on the Paradise 2. Enjoyed every moment. Grandchildren had a great time to. Will do it again.

Recently spent time on Keiko (at a great rate thanks to the Mystery Deal 👍). The kids loved being able to... fish & swim whenever they wanted (so did the adults). The staff were fantastic & helped out when we needed. The boat was great. We had everyone we needed (including plenty of space 😜 ) Very much looking forward to our next adventure.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 🙂

A great weekend exploring Southern Moreton Bay. We had 4 couples on the Kia Lea. Booking, check in, support while on... the water and check out was all seamless. Good communication, quality houseboat which was clean and well appointed in the kitchen and with linen, made it an easy, stress free mini break for us.read more
☆ Professional, accomodating yet friendly staff.
☆ Excellent waterways to cruise, especially the Broadwater and... Stradbroke Island.
☆ Wide range of Houseboats.

We returned from another fantastic Coomera houseboat experience cruising the river and the Gold Coast Broadwater on... board 'BLUE SKY'. Dropped anchor on the sheltered banks of South Stradbroke Island, where we 10 ladies treated ourselves to great company, spa time in the sun, relaxation, beach walks, fine wine & food.We started cruising with Coomera Houseboats in the late 1990's...each year we continue this tradition...most of us are now in our 60's, but we feel very comfortable navigating the boat, as the staff are so accomodating and helpful.Anchors away ⚓read more
Had a wonderful 3 night stay on the Osprey with our family of 5. We parked in the sheltered waters above Jacob’s Well... and had a lovely Halloween 30th birthday party for our son. Many funny photos of that night 🥳
We will definitely be using the Coomera Houseboat’s again.
Many thanks to their helpful crew who helped us out.

Have used and been on plenty of weekends and week day holidays on board Coomera houseboats for over 35 years since I... was a teen , they have always maintained a good strong family friendly fleet with helpful staff in all that time . They are second to none , our next trip we hope to initiate our grandkids to the joys of cruising to be the fourth generation to enjoy Coomera houseboats.read more
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

We hired out the Aegean 60 for the weekend and we could not have been happier with the boat and the entire experience... as a whole. The boat is nice and clean, everything works very well. The staff were very friendly and professional at the same time. A houseboat holiday is a perfect way to get away and relax and we were very happy hiring with Coomera Houseboats! Will definately come back again!read more

Friendly and supportive staff, boats in good condition. Good location but just a bit expensive.
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.

Second time with the Coomera Houseboat crews and the standard of service provided to us both before, during and after... our weekend retreat was outstanding. Went on Blue Sky this time and the boat was in great condition. Everyone on board had loads of fun and for the first timers...they all looking forward to coming back to try out a different vessel next time. The staffs were really friendly and when we had a few hiccups with cruising out, they responded immediately which gives you a sense of being well looked after. Came in late on Sunday and had the crewman staying overtime to help us bring the boat back to dock. Big thanks for that! Highly recommended way to spend a small trip in the gold coast water hinterland with one of Coomera Houseboats.read more

Just got back from a long week end boys trip. We stayed on Blue Sky and everyone was so hyped about this boat, we had... one drama with the generator but coomera houseboat was quick to catch up to us and fix the problem with no interruptions with our trek at all. All the staff are friendly, genuine and very helpful. This is my third time with them (the other two we were on Osprey) and can't say anything bad to be honest. I was skipper on this trip and maps were really easy to read, could present maps better aka folder, clearer red/green/yellow markers but minor critique again to be honest.Thanks again coomera houseboat holidays, we will be booking again.read more
Awesome experience once again!! Just came off the blue sky! I reckon the best boat yet 🙌🏽. We come at... least once a year if not twice. We catch up with our mates for a fish and yarn. I cannot wait for our next one 👌🏽🚢read more

We had a long weekend on Osprey. It’s possibly one of the more basic boats that Coomera have to offer, but it was very... comfortable and well kitted out. The staff were all very friendly and the booking process, check in and check out was seamless. The access that these houseboats give to a gem of a wilderness is amazing. What a gem! Pelicans, birds of prey, fish, crabs all in abundance. All within 45 minutes of Brisbane or 25 minutes from the Gold Coast. Give this a go, create lasting memories with your kids, you won’t be disappointed.read more
our recent holiday on agean was fantastic. the wonderful brett who explained everything when we boarded the... friendly office staff made for an easy trip.
the agean was comfortable well appointed and we had a relaxing time fishing crabbing and lazing around. the top deck was perfect for late afternoon drinks and nibblies and bbqs of our catch.
would definitely recommend this company for their professionalism

Great inductions that took us 3 whole days to sink into our heads between the 7 of us! Very Friendly down to earth... staff crew, thank you Brett and Adrian.

Best Houseboats on the Gold Coast by far!
My husband & I recently had a week away with Coomera Houseboats - it was a beautiful relaxing time & would recommend... them if you want a holiday away from the usual hustle & bustle - the houseboat was clean & well kept - I give the team a "thumbs up" for customer service, from when we booked, on arrival & then our departure 🙂🤗read more
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
Safe to say we had a fantastic weekend on the boat celebrating a very special 21st. Coomera houseboats were really... helpful from the start, but left us enough freedom to do our own thing, and that was the best part of being on the houseboat. We got to decide when and where we went, and got to wake up with the water on our doorstep. Though we got on best having some boat-experienced crew members, driving the boat was not too much of a challenge and our skills improved far quicker than our beach cricket. Overall this was a fantastic, unique way to celebrate with a great group of people.read more
Had a great time on board the Dusk Beeaker, will be doing this again.
Stayed on the Sapphire Lady for 4 nights and had an absolute ball with the kids. Caught bream and flathead off the... back deck, relished in lazy days on the sunbeds up top and took the kids on several adventures on South Straddie Island where they climbed dunes, built sandcastles and pumped yabbies. It was fantastic to be so close to the fishing grounds which was what we really hired the boat for. The boat was comfortable and clean with plenty of room. Loved it and will be back again.read more
Big thanks once again to Coomera Houseboats for a fantastic holiday. The crew were marvellous, everything was ready to... go on our arrival. The boats are always spotless and very well maintained. Once again we were also supplied with perfect weather, fish and crabs. What else could you ask for? See you next year!!!read more
We have just returned from, I think our 15th trip, with Coomera Houseboats. Easy to operate, good briefings before... depature, and for our crew great fishing. Our kind of heaven.read more
I flew up from Melbourne and it all started to head south when my flight was delayed by three hours, I thought, here we... go..... But Sarah and the Coomera Houseboats crew helped organise and set up a tinny for me to hook up with my group, and security to let me in after hours. It was all waiting ready for me to walk on and set off. Huge tick for customer service! I then spent the weekend on the Seaview and had an awesome time with my crew. The Seaview was perfect for the 4 of us to relax and have a good fish over the weekend. The boat didn't disappoint and we are already planning the next weekend and will be hiring the Seaview again. Highly recommend both the Seaview and the staff at Coomera Houseboats. Cheersread more
Another awesome time using Coomera Houseboat Holidays. The 13th time I have used Coomera Houseboats and yet again... another great trip to remember. One thing that never changes is their great customer service and professionalism. Roughly the 8th time we have hired the Osprey and it is perfect for our annual boys getaway.read more

We just had a great week on the kea lea houseboat. What a spacious well equiped boat . With 4 bedrooms 2 toilets and 1... bathroom lounge kitchen and awesome upstairs outdoor area fully protected if needed and easy accessible stairs. We just loved it all and didn't want to get off . Ad to that the abundance of mud crabs � we caught and makes for a perfect holiday. The staff were amazing also with fast efficient service and any questions answered very quickly . We will definitely be back .read more
Hi guys, we recently hired Paradise 2 for a weekend trip with our friends from Hawaii, we all had a great time as usual... and would recommend houseboating as a great way to have a fun holiday on the water.

This was our 5th holiday with Coomera Houseboats,but first time on Kea Lea.Whilst being immaculately clean, one of the... bedrooms needs maintenance with peeling paint.The mattress in the main bedroom was quite hard to sleep on.
The kitchen was well equiped and all worked well.BBQ was in excellent condition and we enjoyed many a meal from it. The icebox on the back deck kept everything very cold. We started with 8 bags of ice and still had half left after 6 days.We did find the back deck a little cramped for 7 people,but we all enjoyed our time on the water fishing and crabbing and hope to have another houseboat holiday in the future

Yet another awesome holiday on board the beautiful Dusk Breaker! She’s like home away from home! Great weekend topped... off by a couple of big muddies and a cracker 58cm Flattie!! Can’t wait for our next trip!read more
We spent 4 nights on Blue Sky Feb 12-16th and it was the best, most relaxing holiday ever!! We had plenty of room and... everything we needed. The BBQ was a little smaller than we expected and took a little longer to cook for 8 but we managed just fine. After reading some other reviews I see that there are some complaints about the cost, to me the cost of hiring the boat means that we get a clean and well maintained vessel that I had complete faith that if we had any dramas that the staff would be there to help. We luckily only had minor issues with our dingys outboard and a dodgy smoke alarm but made a call and they sent a boat out to us quickly to replace those items. Fuel cost was fair, you can't complain about paying for what you use and this was all outlined to us several times before boarding. We were completely happy with paying the price we did knowing we were getting quality for our money, the staff was friendly and helpful, couldn't ask for much more only that it went way too quick � We will definitely be returning and we absolutely loved Blue Sky, it was so worth the extra money to have a nice spacious boat with a spa to kick back and relax in with a glass of Moët for Valentine's Day once the kids were asleep. Loved every minute thank you for an amazing break�read more
Our recent weekend on the water ( on Dusk Breaker ) was just perfect. It was my first experience.......Everyone at... Coomera Houseboat Holidays were professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and we will definitely use you again! We would thoroughly recommend the company and the boats to anyone considering this type of holiday. The only downside for us was that it just wasn’t long enough. Roll on the next time ⛴🏖read more
A smooth and relaxing time was had. Very easy process. We will be back for more. Thank you.
Thank you very much for an awesome week. The staff were great and the vessel was absolutely brilliant. It was... extremely well maintained and faultless in every way. We will definitely be back in the very near future. Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about a holiday on the water.read more
We were discussing this last holiday how many years we have made this regular houseboat holiday with Coomera Houseboats... and decided too many to count (pre year 2000).
Once again this year we had a wonderful holiday and our regular houseboat has had the most beautiful renovation - love it.
Staff - always friendly, supportive and knowledgable.
Routine - pick up and drop off so smooth.
Cleanliness - great.
Problem solving - prompt, friendly, and great outcomes every time.
I have nothing negative to say. See you next year!

We have just returned from 5 days on Pure Paradise. With 7 adults and 2 children on board, there was more than enough... room for us all. Very relaxing holiday but plenty to do at the same time. Caught plenty of mud crabs and a few fish. The houseboat was very clean and well maintained. Staff are very friendly and very thorough when going through the houseboat prior to departure. This was our second houseboat through Coomera Houseboats and certainly won't be our last.read more
My friends came from NZ for a visit, we decided to try something new, we hired Aristocat for the weekend, left the dock... about 3pm I sand banked us about 4pm, rang the office for advice and they were awesome, re floated later in evening,( lesson learnt) next day anchored in deeper water and fished and relaxed, it was a very enjoyable weekend my friends are planning on coming back for another trip in the summer, highly recommend, the staff were very helpful and the process was easy, the boat was great, looking forward to next trip,
Thanks Coomera houseboats

We have just had an amazing 7 day Houseboat holiday aboard Keiko. This was our 8th Houseboat hire from the wonderful... people at Coomera Houseboat Hire, we can't recommend them highly enough..
Their boats are always immaculately clean and well presented, they go to extreme lengths to make sure everything is in order so your time on the water is stress free.
We have booked again on Keiko for May 2018, this time for 10 days of pure relaxing pleasure, Fishing, Crabbing, Reading, Eating, having the odd glass of Wine or a Beer.. WHAT MORE CAN I SAY????????
To Mike, Sandra, Jason, Bret and the whole team, thank you for making our experiences so wonderful and memorable .
Malcolm and Heather Gilbert.

We just returned from a week on the seaview and absolutely loved it. We have been out on a Coomera Houseboat once a... year for about the last 8 years. I cannot recommend them enough. They go above and beyond to do what they can to make sure your trip is the best it can possibly be. We look forward to our next trip as soon as we can. Kris and Trevorread more
Hubby and I hired the Colleen Anne, the smallest of the fleet for a week. Boat was certainly well stocked down to the... toilet paper. Everything on board that you need. Lots of room and easy to navigate with. Top deck would be ideal for little ones as it can be completely secured. Only two little things we had issues with, one was the beds were really high for us oldies to climb up to (maybe a step could solve that's) and the second is it would have been great if there was a depth sounder upstairs. If anyone has doubts about their lack of knowledge the waterways are so well marked its easy. Unfortunately not Coomera Houseboats fault but after the bad cyclones there were so many mozzies around hubbys legs were bitten alive as he wanted to fish at dusk. Fishing was amazing so many different species from our nz fish it was catch and release,
All out we had a great time, thank you Coomera Houseboats we had an awesome holiday!

We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend on Keiko. The whole process from booking, boarding and returning... was excellent. All staff were so pleasant to deal with and any questions were no problem and nothing was any bother. Keiko was everything I expected. So very clean & comfortable with everything you would need to enjoy your break. Can't speak highly enough of everybody and every thing. Simply Loved It.read more
Took a tiny out for the morning and had a great time. All the staff are very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with.... They also put me on to a few good spots to fish. Caught a few fish and lost a few as well lol. The tiny was well set up with plenty of shade. It was easy to use, well looked after and tidy. Highly recommend if your around the Gold Coast area without a boat and your keen to get on the water.read more
Amazing houseboat, friendly staff, have hired twice before (under a different surname) and will come back again. 🙂
We had a great holiday with family over easter highly recommend, great time thank you
We have just come back from our 8th trip on Coomera Houseboats. Have always had a fun experience catching fish and... crabs and the staff are always extremely helpful. If you have never tried it - book a holiday now. It is easy to steer the boat, you don't need a licence just commonsense and the capacity to have lots of laughs along the way.
We will certainly be back and are working our way through the fleet - ideally one day we might get a spa boat. We take along my 2 1/2 year old grand-daughter who also has a wonderful time. Great for all the family.
Try Coomera Houseboats if you want a great experience.

We have been in Sun Godess 4 times with family and have always had a great time. The boat is maintained well and always... clean. The staff are very supportive, encouraging and prepare us well. The icing on the cake is all the crabs we catch and eat! Both mud and sand crabs with some fish. We also enjoy our time, just the 2 of us, on the Colleen Anne. A really great holiday!read more
We have been with Coomera houseboat holidays twice now, 1st was on Seaview and 2nd was Aristocat. Seaview had plenty of... indoor space and although a little difficult to handle in choppy water, this was the better boat of the 2 we've hired.

The holiday in general was very very relaxing both times. We would definitely recommend this type of holiday to everyone from singles to couples and families.

We had to cut short our second trip thanks to the remnants of TC Debbie, but we'll be back again.

Fishing was pretty good, with a few Bream, plenty of Catfish and an eel caught this time.

All in all, customer service and boat cleanliness was fantastic. The staff are very thorough with their briefings before departure, 10/10 there guys n gals. Overall, the whole experience was immensely enjoyable 😀😀

Our family had a ball on the houseboat just prior to Easter. We so enjoyed the million dollar views from the top deck,... we had fun listening to music as we cruised through the broadwater, the BBQ on the top deck copped a hammering because that is exactly where I wanted to be whilst cooking. The kids had so many things they could do and we were able to pick up everything that we had forgotten from the shop before we left that made the trip so cool. A great holiday and we are already planning our next one.read more
Absolutely wonderful! Doing it again and for a lot longer, next time!
Have just had another family weekend get together. Can't speak highly enough of the office staff and all there crew. We... have done this two years running on two different boats. Thank you Coomera Houseboats. From the Ray Family.read more
By any benchmark, Coomera houseboat holidays delivers a value for money outcome. Spacious and well equipped boats,... access to the Broadwater - sheltered or open anchorages - fishing and crabs. Have experienced Mike and team's (Sandra, Brett, Sarah, Neil and others) hospitality and support a number of times; unfailingly courteous and a can do attitude for any request. It is a magical mix for a holiday that can evolve at your own pace. Thank you again!read more
Recently hired the Aegean 60 for 3 nights. Nothing but positives for the Coomera Houseboats office and operational... staff. Boat fulfilled all expectations and very easy booking and hiring process. Only small complaint that the front internal air-conditioning unit near the helm barely works even on maximum setting, otherwise other air-conditioning unit was able to cool other half of the boat fine.read more
Fantastic family holiday...must do it again! Kids were crabbing and yabby sucking, mum and dad were enjoying their... escapades and nan and pop just loved it all.read more
Very rewarding holiday as all my houseboat holidays have been. Easy to drive and anchor for the night. There was a... large area to navigate and all the hard work had been done by Coomera Houseboats with their detailed maps. Boat was clean and beds comfortable! Had heaps of fun fishing and crabbing, caught lots which is always good! Highly recommend this company and their fleet of houseboats.

Great 5 days on Broadwater. Excellent service and friendly people.
We booked 5 adults onboard Sun Goddess & had a wonderful week chasing mudcrabs, fishing & swimming. We caught lots of... big male muddies, also a huge estuary cod in a crabpot which we cooked on the BBQ - fabulous fish. We all enjoyed responsible quantities of beer & wine & spent a very memorable Australia Day just south of Jumpinpin. The only real disappointment we had was a previous hirers DVD was jammed into the DVD player, but in all a fantastic holiday. Thank you to all concerned.read more
You are to be commended on your super friendly team making it a holiday to remember.
Unbelievable beautiful... waterways just so much to see and night fishing was exciting catching some really big fish.
Paradise ll was perfect for children, ideal family boat.
Make sure you check out North Bedroom, anchorage #29, sensational!!!

Best holiday EVER! Was fantastic to disconnect, put our feet up and relax. Caught a great variety of fish, averaging at... least five each a day. In between the spinning reels we had the comforts of comfy couches and beds to lounge on, fully equipped to cook up feasts for dinner and enough room to not get under each other's feet! Would recommend a houseboat holiday with the friendly Coomera team to anyone, and hope to be back next year!read more

Both myself and wife had a very enjoyable boating experience on My Cat 2. Darren provided a thorough and well... structured briefing to get us on our way to Tipplers where we were well protected from the South Easterly winds and able to relax, fish and enjoy the adventure. No issues to report, vessel & charts easy to operate & navigate. A lot warmer than we thought, was even tempted to go for a swim.read more
