But don't just take it from us, the team at Coorong Realty! Ask Helen!

Helen and Shane Atkins purchased the Blue house in August 2021. Since then, they have renovated and refreshed the property.

Helen and Shanes have been coming to Meningie and attending the Lake Albert Caravan Parks on June’s long weekend for the past 15 years. They loved it so much that they also invested their hard-earned cash here, and Helen and Shane eventually wanted to retire here. 

"The Blue House is decorated in tranquil neutrals, with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Even on cold blustery days, you can sit on the lounge and look out over the lake, and it's just magnificent to watch the storms, sunsets and bird life. In the summer, the lake is perfect for exploring by kayaks and even swimming. We love how friendly Meningie is, and there is plenty to do, every time we stay,” stays Helen.
