  • Heritage weekend: River Oaks on Mary was the perfect location for my father, my sisters, and myself to spend the weekend exploring the Kenilworth area where my father grew up. The house catered for all our needs. I chose the property as I had stayed there last year when we had intended to explore my father's heritage. So pleased that we were all able to stay this year and go ahead with our planned weekend. Thank you to Karl for making himself available should we have needed anything.

  • Country escape: Quiet and peaceful country stay with family, friends and dogs 🙂

  • Relaxing retreat with amazing views: We had a fantastic time staying at this property with fabulous views of the Kenilworth countryside and only a couple of minutes' drive into town. We thought that we would be able to see the Mary River from the balcony unfortunately, you can’t but you can walk down to it although not really flowing at the base of the property but you can go further downstream. Very relaxing stay and really enjoyed the outdoor fire pit also. Will definitely be back!

  • Peaceful and pretty: We had a great time at River Oaks, and the dogs made the most of the open field and river access. A lovely peaceful retreat, so close to town - near enough for daily donuts!

  • Relaxing stay at Kenilworth on the Mary
    This property is as advertised and we (my husband, parents & dogs) had a wonderful and relaxing 5 day stay. The house was spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need or want to prepare meals, the beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms clean and well stocked. The living room had a lovely large flat screen TV and very good range of movies and books. The house has a lovely large verandah with views over the paddock down to the river and the green rolling hills beyond and a BBQ if needed. The garden is fully fenced for the dogs and was very secure. We walked the dogs down to the river twice a day where we all had a lot of fun exploring the water and swim holes. We also went down to the river to bird watch and the hope to see a platypus. No luck on the platypus, but the bird life was wonderful including Rainbow Bee-eater, Azure Kingfishers and Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos to name a few. Although we didn't use them, there were also kayaks available if we wanted to explore the river a bit more. Kenilworth is only a short drive away with cheese tasting and great ice cream available at the dairy, an amazing bakery with incredible doughnuts that are worth looking at even if they are not your thing and the hotel with it's own locally brewed beer. All 3 were dog friendly and we sat in the gardens with the dogs comfortably eating and drinking. We really enjoyed our stay and will be definitely book again and recommend it to all our friends. Thank you to Elin for making us feel welcome.

  • An amazing stay
    It was a great place for a group of friends to get away for a very relaxing long weekend. A wonderful location, near the river and close enough to Kenilworth to grab those famous donuts from the bakery. The house was well appointed and all the essentials we needed. We will be back again.😊

  • “We loved Priscilla, the little home by the Mary River in Kenilworth! The RV is small, clean and compact and has everything one might want for a holiday away from it all. Being on a river in the country, the scenery is constantly changing and with the beautiful light , the birdlife, dairy cows next door and mountain views - there was plenty to see and lots of green space to soak up. Kenilworth Village is a very pleasant little town with places to eat and things to do and we particularly enjoyed leaving our car on the edge of town, and walking along the river and parks. One of the highlights was having breakfast at McGinns… right next door to the tourist office and in the centre of the vibrant little village. Elin was an excellent host, responding very promptly to any queries we might have had ,as well as providing very clear instructions on how to get there and things to do in the local area. All in all, a comfortable, yet simple and cosy place to unwind, recharge and enjoy the beauty of the river and the Mary Valley.”

  • We came with our dog Henry. We have been before and it is Henry's "Happy Place". We have just learned he has terminal cancer and wanted to do something special for him!
    He has had many walks to the River, He's had swims and it has been a beautiful and special break for all 3 of us. Thank you


    Barrie & Chris

  • Absolutely loved our little mini break at River Oaks. Spent the early mornings paddling on the Mary River with our little dog Archie. He just loved it.
    We saw platypus , turtles,lizards, beautiful coloured Kingfishers, cows ,jumping fish and multicoloured dragonflies. Just to name a few.
    The house it'self has everything you could want with lovely views from the deck. The aircon was fantastic after a few days of 35 degrees +
    The bed is very comfortable and so are the lounges - perfect for a relaxing afternoon.
    Thank you Mary River Holidays- we will definitely be back. 🙂

  • Great little great away..Nice big paddock for the dogs to run around. Great to sit around the fire pit. Everything you need is here. Great little day trips to be had in the mary valley.


    Michelle & Dave

  • We had a wonderful 5 days at River Oaks. Our dog Willow did too. What a perfect place for her first family holiday. We love the house. The bedrooms were cosy and the beds were so comfortable. We found it hard to drag ourselves away from the view every day. So many creature comforts which meant it really was home away from home. Your caretakers do a great job Thank you!


    Karen

  • There were eight of us 5 being under 15, and they seemed to enjoy their time, it was a much needed break away from the stresses and worries of home. The setting is very pretty and quiet, just lovely.


    Wendy

  • We really enjoyed our weekend at river oaks with the dogs, they played constantly in the river and whilst some parts of the river were quite dry and shallow we were able to use our kayaks. Very pretty Area.


    Victoria

  • It was so relaxing, peaceful and a amazing view!
    My partner and I and our 2 dogs stayed in this beautiful house for 4 nights and we had the most relaxing time. The fresh air, awesome view and gorgeous home was heavenly for us. Swimming in the river everyday was so much fun. We all absolutely loved our stay there and we will definitely be going back. Feeling very refreshed from our stay at River Oaks.

  • Kenliworth River Oaks on Mary is a beautiful property and was a great base for our girl's weekend away! Even though it rained the whole weekend and we couldn't use the outside areas the inside was comfortable and had all we needed to still enjoy our weekend away. If you stay here I recommend going to the Kenliworth Bakery and ordering your coffee/hot chocolate in a doughnut! Also, swing by the diary and pick up lots of unique flavors of cheese!


    Suzanne

  • WOW! River Oaks on the Mary is so gorgeous! Me and my husband stayed for the weekend and we had a nice and relaxing time away. Looking out at the view from the back patio was amazing, having a drink and just chilling. Such an enjoyable stay and so much to do in Kenilworth and the surrounds. The stove and oven is to die for, you don't get these at home. Loved and and will be back again!


    Asti

  • I stayed at Little River Bach with a friend for 5 nights over Easter.  Everything we needed for our stay was provided.  One of the most enjoyable times for us, was sitting on the little deck of a morning having our breakfast and listening to the birds and watching the cows. We both went home feeling very relaxed. Kenilworth has a number of nice places to eat and some interesting places to shop and was a short car trip away.
