Just had a family birthday celebration and weekend stay on Wow Factor. Can not recommend hiring this houseboat enough. It has everything you need and more onboard. The hiring and boarding were easy and smooth, and the River Murray never fails to impress. Thanks Wow Factor we had an amazing weekend. Jill, Dave and family 10 October 2022

June 2023 Lovely relaxing time with family and friends, no previous experience with managing a houseboat but after orientation of the boat, the men mastered it easily. So nice to go where we chose to, the ambience of the boat was magical and we were truly blessed with the special time spent together. All facilities on board, beds very comfortable, plenty of towels and amenities, Kitchen amenities fantastic and the surround sound system enabled us to listen to our music all day throughout the boat. Best of everything we could ask for.

Thank you Wow Factor for a fabulous experience! I’ve been on a few houseboats and this was the best. Kate & Todd are perfectionists and think of everything you could want to make your stay amazing. I love the river and the options on a houseboat holiday of tranquillity and relaxation or water-sports fun. Kent and I had a brilliant long weekend on @Wow Factor, thank you! ?????  17 April 2022

Our 1st time on a houseboat….made the right choice going with Wow Houseboats. Facilities were fantastic and plenty of space for the kids both inside and outside. Will definitely be using them again in the future. Great service by Todd and his team ?

Spent an amazing 3d/2n on Wow Factor, and it was absolutely incredible. Beautifully clean, plenty of sleeping space, kitchen overlooks the back deck, and the spa…. just what you need to warm up and relax after a swim. Matt made us feel so welcome and gave a detailed walk through, would absolutely recommend

We have just spent a very lovely weekend aboard WOW houseboat — 6 adults + 4 children and with age range of 20months to 65years. Spacious enough for everyone to retreat to their own spaces when necessary and enough to keep all ages occupied and happy. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Thank you WOW houseboats (special mention for Matthew Jordan who kept everything running smoothly). Highly recommend

Absolutely the best experience we had ever! Todd and Kate are so nice and friendly as boat owner, and Jordy could be the best machinist all around the Murray River! When we had some trouble there, Jordy made rapid rescue, twice! You know what? Todd made this free of charge for us! The boat is huge and so easy for driving, thanks Jordy for the clear demonstration, even this is a 4 bedrooms houseboat bur you can learn driving it within 30 minutes. There is plenty space on board, the kids are getting so much fun for spa and kayak. When you having a glass of wine on the 2nd floor deck by watching the Murray River sunset, you will know this is real life! We ‘ll definitely come again for next summer holiday, hopefully Todd can drive his jet ski for us a speedy ride! Cheers…

I recently stayed on Wow houseboats over a couple of days with a few of my friends. The boat was amazing!!! I’ve stayed on quite a few boats in the past but this was definitely my favourite! The interior was all new and had movies, an Xbox, a brand new bbq and such a good entertaining area! Had a great time and had the honour of meeting the owners who were some of the nicest and most passionate people I’ve ever met. Loved the experience!!!

Thank you we had an amazing time on WOW houseboat. It comfortably fit all the family. All the special touches helped make it that more amazing.

we stayed on wow factor, and it certainly did not disappoint. As a parent of a young family (1 and 3yrs old) we were relieved to see the quality guard railing around the perimeter of the boat, we also loved the layout, especially being able to go to the up stairs loungeroom for a few drinks when the kids went to bed and not having to worry about waking them up. This houseboat would have to be the best layout I’ve seen, love the kitchen down the back idea. ?

Wow Indeed! What a perfect weekend away. It was my first houseboat experience and it did not disappoint.

From arrival to departure , our hosts had thought of everything we needed to make our weekend safe , fun and fabulous for everyone.

Everything you could have needed was provided , you can just turn up and enjoy. There was water sports for the adventurous, a gorgeous kitchen for the foodies, and the heated spa for the relaxer. Kate does a beautiful job of making you feel at home and extremely welcome and her passion for this piece of paradise called The Murray is obvious. This is a very special place to her and after a stay on this boat it will be for you as well. Flocks of cockatoos dart and dive overhead and the curious pelicans will also slide by for a gander and a hopeful snack. Paradise in our own backyard.

We headed up to River Glen marina on a Friday night and were greeted by our amazing and helpful hosts! As soon as we boarded there was the “WOW” factor and from then on we were just amazed at the facilities this boat provided. The ensuite bedroom/bathrooms offered the privacy we all value. The amazingly well appointed kitchen was a dream to cook in and kitchen supplies were better then mine at hm lol Not to mention the heated spa bath on the top deck was a real win! We enjoyed a long weekend away with two other couples! Highly recommend ?
