We had the best weekend sunbathing, swimming, enjoying the view and having dinner parties. We were so sad to leave. Loved that each bedroom was as nice as the next complete with beautiful quality linen and towels. The large kitchen was brilliant and made it such a pleasure to cook for the group, we literally ate every meal at the house. In every room there were stunning fresh floral arrangements straight from the garden which was a really thoughtful touch. Most comfortable lounge ever. The house is super spacious and with 10 adults we definitely all felt like we had enough space. The garage with a table tennis table and pool table, with beer fridge, provided plenty of entertainment. read lessLyndel26/01/2021

The kitchen was well equipped with a nice butlers pantry and a beautiful long dining table, giving a lot of emphasis that entertainment is key to enjoying this property.
The garden is beautifully kept overlooking the river/lake. A beautiful spot to pause and reflect and maybe even sneak in a salute the sun.
If you go make sure you check out the Study/Converted bed room - something truly magical about getting lost in library showcasing some great literature collections.
Little details that go a long way
1. Owners were very hospitable but gave us our space to enjoy the property
2. Connected sound system
3. Biscuits and chocolate treats
4. Garden growing herbs and citrus fruit read lessMichelle L.04/12/2020

After such a challenging year, this was our chance to escape the hustle and bustle of Melbourne and reunite with our family and friends.
I’m not sure where to even start as we couldn’t get past the stunning entrance, gardens and house, it’s huge (!)
From the moment we contacted owners Andrea and David they went above and beyond to make everything perfect. The tailored experiences are just fabulous and they both took our stay from amazing to something purely magical.
The house itself is nestled on a perfectly manicured landscape with view of the Mitchell River that’s unforgettable! The infinity pool was very clean, warm and welcoming. All our guests had their own space with multiple dining rooms, seating areas and bedrooms set up to our required sleeping arrangements. The library is a winner baby… it has two comfortable sofa beds and an adjoining ensuite, if you are wondering if the sofa beds are appropriate or comfortable, they absolutely are! In fact, I will be asking Andrea where she got them from as my father in law is 73 with a bad hip and he was so comfortable. Finally a regional stay with the right Technology (!) we had reception, fast WIFI and sexy Bose speakers and smart TV’s throughout.
Don’t bring anything! That was our big mistake…They seriously have everything you need… just bring food and drinks as everything is fitted out perfectly, we had a fabulous roast dinner one night and realised we forgot flour for the gravy, after a few wines we weren’t able to get to the shops and cheeky us messaged Andrea - without hesitation Andrea dropped some around for us (!)
I could go on for hours but all you need to know is it’s time for you to stop reading, bite the bullet and book!
If we all have learnt anything in the last two years it’s that life is too short to procrastinate so when Andrea suggests booking the private dinner and helicopter ride (their other business) don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it as both are unforgettable and worth every cent and more!
We will return again soon. Thanks again LaRiva read lessChristopher J.02/11/2021

Throughout our stay we were overwhelmed by the sheer beauty, everything was perfect from the building and it’s lay out to all that was available in the butlers panty, dinning, sitting under the stars and the Infinity pool, so much more to mention. We did not need to leave but wait there’s more, let’s take a short drive my wife informed me!!!, to a helicopter ride to view what this amazing town and surroundings have to offer, by who else our host David. He’s a pilot also. Luv it we will be back with family and friends. 💕 read lessPaul M.29/03/2021

The accommodations are stylish, spacious, comfortable and luxurious. We felt at home and yet spoiled in every room we entered.
The grounds are perfectly manicured with the picturesque views, and only the sounds of nature were around us.
The Masseuse was prompt, professional and provided a relaxing experience for us to start our weekend.
We took the pleasure of having the private chef cooking for us - everything was amazing and high quality.
The helicopter tours came to us, and dropped us back again after a glorious scenic tour.
We loved everything, highly recommend to anyone looking to recharge and reset, or just get away - with a group or just privately.
Loved every moment. read lessBelinda B.18/05/2022

This home and the gardens and the pool and everything is so beautifully set out but actually it's the little things that I found the most special. Andrea has thought of everything and from the minute you arrive, you feel so welcome. I found Andrea to be the most warm and friendly host and we were fortunate that she could spend time with our group. I felt like a welcome guest in her home and I could not recommend this property highly enough. Thank you Andrea, our stay was perfect. read lessErika M.29/03/2022

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted, wandered though the beautiful gardens with sculptures and stunning river flat views.
We enjoyed drinks and canapés by the pool with the sun setting and then a beautifully decorated long table for dining.
It was intimate with the wood fire, lovely company and amazing food, matching wine and friendly service.
Well done for creating such a fantastic experience and a memorable evening. read lessJodie W.09/07/2022

The house was massive but cosy and very well appointed with beautiful furniture and all the gadgets you need in the kitchen. The view from the garden and the entrance hall was breath taking. The rose gardens were beautiful to walk through and the big infinity pool was heated. The hosts were also lovely and offered tips about things to see and do nearby. 5/5 would definitely stay again :). read lessOla A.04/12/2020

A large infinity pool is a key feature of the property; the heated water reflects the silhouette of the surrounding trees, which frame the view of the inlet and rolling hills that lie beyond. Moving back inside, the house itself is architecturally stunning and beautifully well appointed. The numerous bedrooms, sitting and dining areas are comfortable and tastefully furnished. Apple-play connected Bose speakers fill the rooms with music, and aroma of a well-cooked meal is never far away, with a fully equipped centrally located kitchen enticing any would be chef. Our hosts were courteous and respectful, paying attention to all the small details and ensuring our stay was as relaxed and enjoyable as we could wish for. Our only disappointment was booking too short a stay. We look forward to our next visit, for the little the slice of paradise that La Riva has to offer. read lessChad V.07/12/2020
