The space

Rare, secluded deep waterfront cottage surrounded by the picturesque Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.

Step back in time to when life was simpler, when people had stimulating conversations instead of texting emojee’s, attended elaborate dinner party’s instead of going to a restaurant then played cards or board games like "Twister" till the wee hours of the morning.

Romantic. Serene. Private. Right on the water. The perfect getaway.

The house has a beautiful lawn by the water, shaded by a Jacaranda Tree with one of the last remaining private tidal sea pools on the Hawkesbury.

Relax on the verandah with the water so close, you would think you are on a boat.

Facing NorthWest, gaze across the deepest fjord in the Southern Hemisphere at the spectacular beauty that is the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park - thousands of hectares of untouched, virgin bushland.

Lie on the pontoon on a summers night and count the shooting stars amongst the endless starry background, unhindered by civilisations lights.

This classic late 60’s Cottage will not disappoint you, with its comfortable, relaxed layout and modern conveniences.

Explore the clear waters of Cowan Creek in one of our SOT Kayaks or SUP’s (stand up paddle board). Kayak 5-10mins to The Kiosk for a delectable breakfast or lunch.

Watch boats go by knowing that you'll never get seasick at Homelea...

Read a book from our library or play one of the many board games at hand.

Watch Foxtel IQ or the Blue Ray DVD with a small library of DVD's (or bring some with you).

Fish off the floating pontoon or in one of our Kayaks and catch something fresh for dinner.

**Minimum 2 Nights Stay.

A jewel in Ku-ring-gai! Only 45 minutes from the CBD, Homelea is a must for anyone looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. When we arrived I was absolutely mesmerised by the view and birdsong. Such a calming place with plenty to do! Thank you Homelea for a wonderful stay!

A beautiful spot to get away from it all. Gorgeous little place, well stocked, and comfortable. Had a great swim off the jetty and loved waking up to the sounds of the water lapping. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This was our second stay at this fantastic property. Stunning location right on the waterfront. The place is so well equipped it felt like our second home. Loved borrowing the kayaks to explore the tranquil national park surrounds.

Had an absolutely marvellous stay at Homelea! The standup paddleboards and kayaks were fantastic. The location is two doors down from Cottage Point Inn and the Kiosk. Would highly recommend Homelea to anyone and I look forward to staying there again!

Fabulous absolute waterfront location in stunning Cottage point. Getting there is part of the adventure, navigating the steep terrain to reach the old style cottage. Comfortable and well equipped (except for towels- remember to BYO). Kitchen is fully functional and you will want to stay in and enjoy the view. Bonus having kayaks available to explore the calm waters and peaceful River life.

Our long weekend at Homelea was the perfect getaway and a tincture for all the stresses of Sydney. The accommodation is well resourced and perfectly positioned. There is opportunity to do lots, or (as we preferred!) lots of nothing. Very comfortable whether inside at night, indulging the sunset on the verandah or a morning kayak. Clean but not clinical, welcoming and very hard to leave. Thank you very much for allowing is to share this beautiful part of the world!
