The Grove Gunbower..

Cottage in Gunbower with kitchen and fireplace
Due to the popularity of our other holiday rental property "The Ridge" we have renovated another house on our farm "The Grove".
The Grove is more spacious house with 3 bedrooms. With a larger living room and kitchen.
If you love peace, tranquillity and wildlife then this is the place for you. Abundant bird life and when walking along the banks of the Gunny Creek, you may spot a Wallaby or two..

We love people who bring their dogs and other pets on holidays with them. We do have a secure dog yard. Pets are allowed inside. But be sure to bring your own blankets/ bedding for them to lay on. Do not allow pets on furniture and bedding. And please vacuum dog hair from floor before leaving.

The Gunbower Creek is a great spot for fishing and in summer it is a popular place for swimming and water skiing.
Murray cod, yellow belly and carp are often caught in the creek. Boats can be launched at the nearby boat ramp, which is just a two minute walk from the cottage. It is currently difficult to fish from the bank of the creek due to the large amount of water lilies growing in the shallow water. But we have installed a fishing jetty nearby to make it easier for visitors without a boat, to fish. The jetty is a 5 minute walk up stream from The Grove
Kayaks are available for tenants' use at no extra charge. Life jackets are supplied.

NEW!!! Streaming services Stan and PrimeVideo available for free. Literally thousands of movies and TV shows to choose from.
Also have good range of DVDs if internet is out.

Free unlimited WiFi internet available.

The Gunbower Creek is lowered from mid May till mid August. A shallow stream flows in the creek at this time of the year. Therefore the mud banks are exposed and it is difficult to get to the water to fish. Fishing is possible ten minutes from Gunbower in the Murray River. Please contact us if you require further information.
In Gunbower there is a Takeaway Shop that also sells all basic needs, McGillivrays' Butcher Shop and the Gunny Pub for excellent meals .

Locality

The Grove is situated on the Gunbower Creek at Gunbower, Victoria, 40 kilometres west of Echuca.
From Echuca travel towards Kerang along the Murray Valley Highway. Just before entering Gunbower, turn right into Fox Island Road, then right into Richards Road. House entrance is 1.8 km on right amongst the very large gum trees.

Property

The Grove is situated on our cattle farm property of approximately 200 acres. We also have another holiday house on the farm (The Ridge is also listed on this website) which is about 300 metres further down Richards Road.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. Kitchens offer fridges, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Perfect Winter getaway
The Grove was the perfect little base to explore Gunbower. We enjoyed the wood fire, archery and the goats and pony next door. The Gunbower pub was great food, the local playground by the creek was given a good run and the ladies at the local cafe/nursery were very helpful. Thank you for having us - we will pass on happy memories of our stay to family and friends.

Homely and Peaceful
Had absolutely everything we needed. We brought along our 4 month old Groodle and he absolutely loved the backyard. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a nice and quiet retreat away from the noise of the city and suburbs

Relaxing Long Weekend
Arriving late the first night, we were greeted with the fire already going and everything we needed for the weekend. Situated down a quiet road right across from the water we couldn't have asked for a prettier spot. Lots of walks, scenic drives (loved Mt Hope and the Gunbower National Park), and board games at night. Wifi was a bonus. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you Sean for being such a great host!

Wicked stay yet again!
Was amazing once again. Second time there although we stayed at the ridge last time. The grove was awesome. Only comment I will make is that the bed linen wasn’t that clean and the towels should be updated. But overall incredible experience. Can’t wait to come back!!!

Such a hidden gem 💎
Wish we stayed longer ! Especially the dogs. This was a awesome experience, my daughterloved the cows and wildlife around the property. Right on the water and the house had so much history to tell and was so cosy, we all felt so comfortable. Was so nice to walk in and have milk, tea and coffee ready to go. Will definitely be back again.. maybe next time in 'The Ridge' .5 Stars.

1/5 Terrible

Not Great.
We had an issue whilst staying here where an inebriated and partially clothed male relative of the owner decided to approach my 8yo daughter whilst playing in the yard on her own. The owner handled this well by apologising in person and provided us a full refund, however we were the losers in the end having to cut short a 5-day holiday to 1, with the addition of having our 8yo little girl who was completely traumatised by the experience.

As expected. Lovely. would stay again if host would have us as we found the key lock system a challenge. Our fault for not reviewing emails that had been sent to me.
