The Rushes Goolwa
Relax in this purpose built luxury property, ideally located along the Lower lakes of the River Murray and where this river ends its 2530 km journey as it flows through the Coorong before entering the Great Australian Bight. The Rushes cottage façade fits well into the landscape of the States Heritage listed area of Little Scotland in Goolwa, nestled between the town and the river. This property has a wow factor, as you enter through the cottage façade an open plan combining heritage and natural materials gives The Rushes its warm ambience. Light fills the rooms from a central private courtyard which has its own open fireplace. A luxurious bedroom has a deep soaking bath which overlooks the courtyard and fireplace. Enjoy morning walks and the natural wonder of this beautiful location and Goolwa Beach with its abundant birdlife in the Tokuremoar Reserve.
Ideally located beside the lower Murray River in the historic Goolwa Wharf Precinct on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.
Natural and recycled materials have been blended to give The Rushes its rustic elegance. Perfect for a romantic getaway or just to spoil yourself.
The central courtyard’s open fireplace has been cleverly constructed with old red bricks in keeping with the heritage of the area. The courtyard allows light to flow through the rooms and is the perfect spot to relax in front of the fire. Guests are spoiled with the luxurious bedroom having a comfy queen size bed and indulgent deep soaking bath. An adjacent separate bathroom is well appointed with heated towel rail and soft fluffy towels. The front room has a cosy sitting area with a window looking out toward the Wharf and Lake Alexandrina.
