Getaway: Spend a weekend on the water aboard the Eliza Jane

What could be more romantic than a houseboat getaway for two on the water, just 1.5 hour’s drive from Adelaide on Hindmarsh Island?

Moored at the Coorong Quays on Hindmarsh Island, the ‘Eliza Jane’ is a fully restored 1947 wooden cruiser, which offers the perfect balance of old and new through a combination original polished wood interiors and all the modern comforts you need for a weekend staycation. 

This unique Airbnb can suit a number of couples, whatever your ideal holiday may be, whether it’s relaxing on the boat’s exterior which features two sun loungers and adjustable mood lighting, or an afternoon exploring on the boat’s complimentary double kayak (life jackets provided!)

Although this cosy houseboat limits their stays to two guests, you’ll be surrounded by the abundance of wildlife that call Hindmarsh Island home, with binoculars and a bird-identification book available for those curious about their new neighbours. 

Deceptively spacious, the Eliza Jane boasts five living areas, including a plush king sized bed with all linens provided, ensuite bathroom and fully equipped galley kitchen, where you can enjoy an invigorating morning coffee using the provided coffee-pod machine or charcoal-cooked dinner on the water with shared BBQ facilities situated on the Marina. 

Alternatively, for an evening out without the long Uber journey home, the houseboat is berthed just 100m away from the cosy Islander Tavern which offers a delicious menu of hearty pub classics and a selection of international dishes. 

Should the weather take a turn for the worse, you won’t be stuck for things to do with the Eliza Jane’s plethora of indoor entertainments, including an exhaustive library of books and DVDs, magazines and a selection of classic game-night favourites. 

The Eliza Jane is a unique dog-friendly getaway for two, and the price starts at $74.08 a night.
