The space
The Maggie May house boat is the biggest house boat on the Sunday's River and is over 10 meters long and 5 meters wide.

You will find an upper deck for relaxing and watching the sun sets or sun tanning & a lower deck with beds, kitchen bathroom etc.

When you book our house boat you will be the only guests on the boat.

The main bedroom has a sliding door and a couch next door which folds into a king size bed.

There is a 2 man tent for the upper deck if there is not enough space in the cabin.

We can accommodate 6 people but 4 is comfortable and 2 is ideal.

The toilet is very small for many people and some might need to use the toilet & shower up at the house.

The small kitchen has a 2 plate gas stove, microwave, fridge freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, and a Weber Braai/barbecue on the lower Deck.

The back of the boat has a swimming platform & small bench for fishing.

You will be the only guests on the boat.

You have access to the whole boat, kitchen, bathroom, upper deck etc.

Jetty nearby for fishing and the river for swimming.
