About Maggie May House Boat

The Maggie May is a beautiful rustic house boat located on the Sunday's River. The boat is over 10 meters long and five meters wide. The crew can organize river cruises at a surcharge and activities such as sand boarding can also be arranged.

Self Catering Accommodation

The houseboat is able to accommodate up to four guests in one bedroom and a sleeper couch. The main bedroom has a double bed and the sleeper couch is King-size.

A small toilet and shower is also featured but guests are welcome to use the bathroom facilities in the crew's premises. Bed linen is provided and guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi.

There is a semi equipped kitchenette with a microwave, a fridge and a stove. The boat is moored next to our premises which is close to the highway so there could be some noise but mostly it's quiet.

Verified reviewvery good

We had an awsome stay, two problems, caban lights did not work entire night, mantenance did come but could not sort out the problem, two toilet would not flush which was a big problem and made it uncomfortable, as well as no water in the bathroom.

I am very sad to write a negative comment about what I had anticipated to be an awesome overnight stay for my birthday with my husband. I am also at fault as I should have read the description more closely, but I also think it is not correctly described. I would also like to add that at R1 000 per night for a couple, this isn't cheap, so perhaps my expectation for what I was going to receive was based on the time old value for money proposition. At R1 000 per night I expected it to be a great experience. The boat is moored too close to the bank, because at low tide when the water goes out, the boat beaches at a very odd angle, and everything leans terribly to the middle of the river (glasses slide off the table). Some of these photos show where it was moored further out, which I am sure would work a lot better. The bed makes no sense - you have to physically climb over your partner to get out of the bed and in the middle of the night to be woken up like this isn't romantic - it was scary as you didn't know what was going on!!!!! The "sleeper couch" isn't a sleeper couch. It is a caravan style seating area that isn't terribly comfortable to sit on. THIS IS A FLOATING CARAVAN VS A HOUSEBOAT in my humble opinion. Might I also suggest that some steps be fashioned at the back of the boat to allow one to get back into the boat if you decide to pop into the water for a quick swim. Unless you are a gym bunny with tons of upper body strength, there is no ways that the average person can get back onto the boat from the water. We had to swim to shore and get back onto the the boat via the jetty down the gangplank back on the boat. We had no water when we arrived. There was also no hot water on board. I think it would be quite important to mention that unless you are a family, I don't think this accommodation is really suitable for friends etc with the close quarters and the toilet that is basically next to the persons head in the double bed and you can hear every sound that is made in there..... The bar stools out the back have not footrests, which makes sitting there for longer periods very uncomfortable. Might I suggest some camping chairs for the deck - they would be far more comfortable. Now for the positives - I did like the fact that the kitchen was well equipped. The bedding was first class (duck down duvet, white bedding and mosquito net). The host thoughtfully left coffee, juice, milk and a chocolate for us, which was awesome!
