Scallywag- 2 Bedroom Houseboat (small 2 - 4 berth)

1 of 7
Boat house -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Blanchetown, South Australia
A very popular 2 - 4 berth houseboat, Scallywag is a breeze to drive and very economical to run. Scallywag is big enough to give you tons of space, but small enough to make you feel confident in setting forth as Captain of your own vessel!

Modern, light and airy, take in the views with panoramic windows, and the raised front ceiling and extra windows add to your a feeling of being surrounded by nature.

Scallywag has a host of features including free to air satellite television on a widescreen TV, a fully equipped galley style kitchen with dishwasher,and a comprehensive library of DVD's, games and books for your enjoyment!

With reverse cycle air conditioning and gas heating you can travel in year round comfort.

Scallywag has two queen size bedrooms, with the option of having 2 single beds in one of the rooms.

Imagine lying in bed...

Interaction with guests
Upon arrival at the marina we will welcome you on board and then conduct a session to show you how to operate all the workings of the houseboat (we can even teach you how to tie knots for when you moor overnight) After this, our qualified instructors teach you to drive the houseboat and once you are comfortable with your ability, you head off on your wonderful journey of discovery! We are contactable by mobile phone if you have a question while underway, and of course will be at the marina to welcome you back again and hear all about your holiday.

We've just spent a week on Scallywag, my wife and I, plus our dog. What a chilled week! Just great to spend your day kayaking around the backwaters of the Murray, and your night sitting on the deck having a nice BBQ and drinks. The...More

This company has been totally professional and very easy to deal with from the start, one one the most amazing things is they were able to accommodate our dog Bluey (we were able to take him aboard the Scallywag) We spent 6 nights aboard Scallywag,...More

We are thrilled you enjoyed your houseboat holiday and that Bluey had fun too. We love sharing our special stretch of the Murray and Scallywag is a perfect houseboat for 2 people and a fur baby!

How to get there
We are located just 90 minutes from Adelaide and 2 hours from Adelaide Airport at 9131 Sturt Highway Blanchetown. We are the only houseboat hire business when you reach the Murray River at Blanchetown and easily accessed! Our secluded and private marina is nestled below ancient limestone cliffs and we have tons of room to park your car ( our riverbank is also under 24 hour CCTV surveillance for your peace of mind!)

Travelling to Blanchetown from the airport is even easier now via the Northern Express Way, which takes you all the way to Gawler where you join the Sturt Highway.
We are ONLY 40 minutes from the world famous Barossa Valley - the perfect spot to stop and enjoy lunch and a wine tasting on your way to Blanchetown.
