      Hi Rebecca, just a quick msg to let you know that we had an incredible time on your boat and that Jodie and Mike were superb. Again thanks for the use of the junior life jacket! I have family back in Scotland just now raving about the boat!! They couldn't believe the fantastic facilities and the space Hypnotic offered. We will get in touch next time we look to book a houseboat as the location was also top notch. With Thanks.

      Just a quick note to thank you Rebecca and Darren. We had a wonderful few days with the family, children through to grandparents. The boat was very roomy even though there were 12 of us plus Cot. The bedrooms were bigger than we have found before on houseboats and even though it was winter, our favourite time on the river, we were always warm and cosy. Loved the long walks, campfires and camp ovens. The trip was voted a "top holiday" and as you know we have already booked Winter 2016. Best wishes to you both.

      I consider myself a sea person but after my mini break on "Hypnotic" I've been converted to houseboating on the River. It was the calmness of it that I loved, the cruising along and watching the bird life and the changing colours of the banks. The facilities aboard Hypnotic were first rate and cleaner that a lot of hotels I've stayed at., and there was enough space for people to go and do their own thing too. To sum it up I believe Hypnotic offers the perfect getaway for friends and family to chill out and enjoy each others' company in a beautiful part of the world.

      Our time aboard Hypnotic was just that. Relaxing, enjoyable, and so much fun. With a loaded crew of great friends the time we spent wasn't enough. Already looking at dates for our next trip and plan on spending longer on board. Thanks Bec for an easy to organise trouble free time away.

      I am so pleased with the Houseboat we hired for our wedding at Caudo Vineyard in November. It was beautifully set out for my bridal party to get ready on. The rooms are modern, clean and we especially loved the roof top jacuzzi. We appreciate the extras Rebecca and the team went to - It made our wedding even more special. My husband and I enjoyed the cruise back to the dock the next day. It was a relaxing day and the perfect way to end such an amazing weekend. I can't recommend the houseboat enough to my family and friends. The organisation and communication from the owners is exceptional. We will be hiring again. Thank You!

      Hi Rebecca & Darren, thank you so much for having us on your great boat... we had an absolute ball, both families agreed it was the best holiday so far!! We found some great spots and just really had a fantastic holiday- relaxing, exciting and everything in between. We felt the kids were really safe and now have full confidence in family house boating. We found the Foxtale staff of Jodie, Jarred and co to be wonderful to deal with and could not fault the presentation of the boat and their overall welcoming and accommodating attitude. Thank you everyone!

      Cawood Family - July 2016

      For a week in the middle of July our family (9 Adults) spent our holiday on Hypnotic. We have been on quite a few houseboat holidays and this boat has definitely been our favourite.

      The boat was very clean and very well maintained. There was an issue with the generator that they had not been able to fix before we arrived, but management clearly explained what was wrong, and gave clear instruction on how we had to handle it while we were away. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans. The beds were quite firm (for some) so if you prefer a softer bed bring some underlay or something, but that is just a personal preference. Also the whole booking and boarding process was easy and hassle free.

      All in all, we had a fantastic time and would highly recommend hiring Hypnotic Houseboat.

      P.S. the pictures I have sent with this email are some photos I took personally and would like you to have them. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend a lovely week on your wonderful houseboat. Best buy far!

      Hi Rebecca, I'd just like to say thank you to you and your team for the before, during and after support from our houseboat holiday; especially Jodie and Jarrad who made our arrival and deptureture easy even though we had a few hiccups and were so helpful while we were on the boat and were easy to deal with and helpful while we were on the houseboat.

      The river was amazing with an instant feel of relaxation from the moment we got there. Cruising the river was amazing with the natural beauty of the river to enjoy with bird life, flora and fauna abundant. The boat was exceptional with so many extra, and so much space.

      The weather was amazing even though it was winter and the kayak and Jacuzzi were used often. Relaxing on the top deck while cruising along was brilliant; with a 360 degree view of the river, and being able to watch the ever changing colours as you went along. The campfires on the bank were the perfect end of the day, and for a good old campfire meal.

      Again thank you for a great trip that ended all to soon. We would love to do it again and would recommend it to friends and family any day, well worth it. Regards Naomi Paton and the whole Paton family.
