We loved spending the long weekend on Foxtail 4, such an amazing boat. Thank you Jodie & the team especially Dave for making things super easy & heaps of fun.

We have just had the pleasure of hiring 3 x houseboats for 31 people for 7 days. Jodie and staff of Foxtale have been amazing but most of all the houseboats were fantastic. Without doubt every single person had the most wonderful holiday. It was filled with fun, laughter, love and relaxation topped off with plenty of beautiful weather, stunning scenery and grand look at an awesome part of South Australia. Thanks Foxtale Houseboats. xx

We just spent a fabulous week on Pearl and Foxtale 4 thanks to Jodie from Foxtale Houseboats. Jodie helped us out of a difficult situation when only a week before 10 of us were due to travel, our 5 bedroom/5 bathroom boat was badly damaged by a falling tree. JODIE to the rescue – came up with 2 smaller boats which were perfect for our needs – even swapping beds for sofa beds, and negotiating a great price to help us out. Cannot speak highly enough if the GREAT service and care we received. Thank you Jodie. You are one in a million and Foxtale boats are fantastic!

Thank you to Jodie and the team at Foxtale for the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic week on Foxtale 4. A most relaxing, affordable holiday with our dogs in the best way to see the Murray. Everything was taken care of and we can’t wait for the next trip. A big thanks to David for looking after us when we arrived and making sure we were comfortable operating the boat. David is an asset to Foxtale. Why would you holiday anywhere else.
Thank you very much

Thank You Foxtale 4 for a wonderful weekend, everything went right. We will see you next year, from 3 happy, well rested couples.

I would mark this holiday with a huge green tick and 2 thumbs up – one of the best holidays I’ve had. The houseboat alone was equipped with everything – the minute we boarded it felt welcoming and it was our home for a few days (I wish it was a few weeks) – our home where we created many memories- our laughs echoed through the Murray River – Young laughs and old laughs. We danced, we drank, we ate, we swam and we enjoyed life because Foxtale Houseboats is a holiday that built happiness and fun – bringing my family and friends together.

Thanks so much for an awesome holiday – the management is 100% awesome too.
P.s – Rey our mascot loved it
