    Three wonderful nights

    We just spent three wonderful nights of this charming house-boat. Our three kids (ages 12, 10, 8) didn't want to leave the boat. They were happy fishing and swimming off the boat all day. There is also an option to rent a small motor boat and take it out into the lake. The house-boat is in a nice residential neighborhood, within walking distance to the T (subway), restaurants and grocery stores. Pernilla was very helpful and provided us with lots of information as well as some goodies in the fridge to make it through the first breakfast. We were also impressed with how practical, functional and nicely decorated the house-boat was! It was a great experience overall.

    Best time in Kysna so far!

    The first few times we've been to Kysna we stayed in normal apartments on the shore. This time, however, we wanted to stay on the lagoon. This was the best choice we made and it exceeded all our expectations! The experience was magical: it all the facilities we needed, the sun was shining over the water and the birds sang every day. A true recommendation for anyone! The hosts were amazing and we are certainly coming back ASAP.

    Perfect family holiday

    I stayed on the Myrtle Houseboat with my two young children. The boat is anchored in the lake, and it is about 100m by boat to get there. The hosts were very friendly and made us feel right at home. All the facilities we needed were there. Waking up to the peace and quiet is something amazing. Everyone who looks for some place excluded, rejuvenating and comfortable should really check this out!

    Great experience!

    A holiday we won't easily forget. Something totally different, and by different I mean fantastic! By just listening to the sound of water, and by looking at the surroundings and other boats, you finally really relax. The host was very friendly and helpful.
