Our holiday home is yours!! - 14-16 capacity.
Once an historical Pub & ex-B&B, now renovated as a charming private residence. Enjoy the simple country life with backyard chooks (& complimentary eggs if lucky!), a blossoming lime tree, wood fires, darts & a billiard table. Situated in the main street of small town Mathoura its close to the local pool, skatepark, cafes, parks & the lovely Gulpa Creek. The central courtyard / BBQ area includes a tv & huge dining table for long lunches/dinners.
Small families, singles or couples are most welcome to stay in this very spacious house. However, with enough beds and adjoining ensuites (including a bath) to comfortably sleep and shower 14 people (plus 2 sofa pull out beds if 16 is your number), its the perfect holiday home for large friendship or family groups.
The spacious living areas include plenty of seating and sofas in the lounge room and private reading/tv rooms (3 large screen tvs in total). A billiard room, large dining room, kitchen, laundry all have space to move.
The large outdoor courtyard/eating area and backyard gardens with chook pen offer the cosiness of a country home with the space for all to enjoy.
Enjoy the roaming chooks behind the garage. Sometimes they lay fresh eggs. The limes on the lime tree in the backyard are also yours to enjoy.
Light the outdoor campfire in the central courtyard area which is a beautiful way to see out a long lunch or dinner.
Feel free to read a book from the 2 book shelves or have a game of darts or billiards in the cosy recreation/ living space.
The entire house is available to use. No limitations on access.
Общение с гостями
Please note - the previous owner's phone number on the front of the building is no longer listed. Please contact me through AirBnB for assistance with your booking.
We're happy to leave you to it and give instructions for entry and key return. A lock box will be arranged in the near future. If you would prefer a meeting first, we may be able to arrange in nearby Echuca or in Mathoura itself if available. Local Mathoura friends may be available for emergencies.
Другие важные подробности
This is a charming, authentic country holiday home; a little rough around the edges, (don't expect modern decor and shiny surfaces) but it has been well renovated and is extremely comfortable, spacious and loved by the owners.
The chooks are tended to by a neighbour and roam free when let out of their pen, so no aggressive pets allowed if they will disturb the chooks. But otherwise, its a pet friendly house (often home to our family parrot and Golden Retriever!). The property is gated for security.
You'II love the billiard table, dart board, old country feel with chooks, a lime tree and a hearty Coonara wood fire. (Talk to us about our wood simply if needed).
- Please strip sheets on the last day and put them in a pile with used bath towels in the laundry.
-Put fresh sheets (provided in rooms) on beds before departure.
- Please place rubbish bags in courtyard area before departure, with thanks.
-No smoking inside the house thank you. If smoking in the courtyard please deposit butts in outside fireplace.
For Emergency Assistance or help with the backyard chooks, please call neighbour Bruce (Mathoura) his number is on fridge or Jacqui (Echuca) her number is on fridge.

- HOUSE RULES & TIPS -
SHOWERS & LAUNDRY WATER
Mathoura’s Town Water is limited with pressure so please shower once at a time to avoid problems with the hot water service.
NO SMOKING PLEASE
We ask that you smoke outside and dispose of butts.
There is a reverse cycle air conditioner in both the master bedroom and the main living room. There are oil heaters in the single bedrooms and (expensive to run) small fan heaters in the rest.
You will find a stack of fire wood in the back yard. Please feel free to use the Coonara heater in the main room and the courtyard Mexican fire, but avoid using the other wood fires inside. The antique kitchen stove can be used as a fire for warmth. The middle door is the perfect spot to light kindling and small pieces of wood.
The top section of the wall oven is being repaired so use the bottom part and the hotplates for cooking.
LOOKING FOR A LIGHT SWITCH?
The pantry light is behind the pantry door (on the wall).
Some of the lights are activated by pulling a string hanging from the ceiling.
You will see that there is a wine fridge in the living room. Feel free to have a bottle but we’d appreciate a replacement or a cash donation.
Should you have any trouble with the BBQ gas bottle supply, let us know and we will replace. If needed, you can visit the nearby service station to replace while you’re here.
- REQUESTS BEFORE LEAVING -
STRIP SHEETS & TOWELS - MAKE BEDS
Please strip beds and pile used towels & sheets on laundry floor.
Please remake beds with linen provided in rooms.
Please place any rubbish bags in the back courtyard.
For those staying long term, bin night is Thursday.
CHECK ON CHOOKS
If the girls have been roaming, put them back in their pen
(or text Bruce next door - his number is on the fridge- to let him know they’re out).
Please leave Charleston House as you found it.
We will give it a vacuum after you leave, but if you could put away your dishes
or turn on dishwasher and do a general tidy up, we’d really appreciate.
Please lock all doors before leaving.
The last door you should exit out of should be the one closest to the hanging tv in courtyard
Thankyou so much for choosing us for your trip away. We will be sure to give you a great review on AirBnB and hope you will return the favour! Next time you’re in the area, stay again. Or check out our other property, holiday villas on a lake in Moama called Perricoota Vines.
