  • We had the best weekend away at Kim and locky’s place. It was a beautiful little spot that was perfect for all of us to recharge! They were extremely accommodating with our extra guests and allowed us a late check out as well. Unfortunately it was raining most weekend so we didn’t have much time to chill in the hot tub, but I’m sure we’ll be back again to make full use of the place! Thanks again for having us x

  • We had a lovely stay. The property is beautiful and very clean. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and sitting on the deck and in the spa overlooking the view was delightful.

    Yung2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were completely amazed by Locky and Kim’s warm hospitality, it is by far the best we’ve experienced. Be prepared for a friendly welcome, they are very accommodating and helpful. Not to mention such a unique space, which is so gently tucked away from the hassles of every-day life... Kim and Locky have an eye for decorating their little hide away, with simplicity and elegance - the main room has the most stunning view of the bush land, the place is hard to fault. Our only regret is not staying a little longer, we will be sure to visit in the cooler months for a slightly different experience I’m sure. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    Mark2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Expect to be cut off from reception... but in the best possible way. You lookout from bed to a gorgeous sunlit valley right at your door step, walk out into a beautiful mix of modern rustic architecture and nature. Of course you’ll probably end up spending 50% of your time in the hot tub but it’s worth it. Fairy lights come on at night and make the tranquility of this stay truly magical. Wish we stayed longer to explore the hikes but Kim and locky are the loveliest and will definitely point you in the right direction of the waterfall and kangaroos. Thank you for making my birthday weekend a magical and relaxing one spent with my closest friends!

    Samantha2019-11-25T00:00:00Z

The spa is the highlight, nestled in under the stars and surrounded by the Aussie bush, it was the perfect place to unwind and the essential oils added made it smell amazing too.

The location right in front of the river was very relaxing and was a great spot for fishing if you are into it. Xavier was a very good host with prompt reply for any questions I had and has been very helpful. Certainly would recommend this and we are looking to book our next stay here soon.

Doesn’t get better than this place!

    Idyllic location in a bush setting with lots of privacy! 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house with a private spa and massive veranda .Great location for people wanting to go boating in Spencer or just relax and enjoy nature at its best! Perfect for groups with a 10 seater dining table & large outdoor table & BBQ. Perfect in winter with it's hot spa and the provisions to build your own fire pit.
    We are quite a distance from town so, it's best to do your shopping in advance so you can truly relax on arrival. There are other houses on the property but this is set the furthest away so, you will have your space! We suggest to download the directions as you will lose service on the way.
    It is a beautiful retreat only 1 hour and 20 minutes from Sydney. It is truly tranquil and relaxing
  • Beautiful spot not far from Sydney. Great space, tastefully put together with living room overlooking the valley, feels like your in the valley. The jacuzzi with a view across to the opposite hillside is so relaxing, particularly enjoyed an early morning soak with a beautiful mist in the valley and the sun rising up over the hill. Locky was very welcoming and a lovely guy, there for anything we might need and not at all intrusive. Highly recommended.

    Matt2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we arrived, we felt like we’d found some hidden secret and we’re the luckiest of travellers! Beautiful, large and stylish house with tons of space, towels, games to play, FOXTEL for evening movies, and the hot tub to just put the icing on the cake. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to escape city life and especially those who want to explore and delve into true Aussie bushland lifestyle. And the best hosts you could want for too! Wonderful. Thanks Kim and Lachie xxxx

    Lisa2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

  • As I’ve travelled around a ton for both work and pleasure, I’ve had a lot of experience with air bnbs and the owners. I can easily say that Kimmy and Locky are the warmest, kindest people I’ve come across. And the Airbnb was just as welcoming. Everything I could have asked for, from ice for our drinks, cold water, spa at the perfect temperature... couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Can’t wait to come back! I haven’t even mentioned how picturesque it was.... wow!

    Samuel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place for someone who wants to be out in nature. They have great amenities and Kim and Locky were wonderful hosts.

    East facing (watch the sunrise) private fully self-contained studio apartment overlooking the Hawkesbury River. Tranquil setting, ideal for a quiet getaway to relax and unwind. Easy access to Sydney and the Central Coast. Mooney Mooney Club has an à la carte menu as well as bar food and is a 10 minute walk away. Brooklyn is 5 minutes drive and has restaurants, hotel, take aways, boat hire and shops.
    The apartment has its own private entrance and is fully self contained. The apartment usually enjoys a cool evening breeze off the water, however, there is an air conditioner for those hot still nights. We love living on the Hawkesbury and enjoy sharing it with guests who respect our home. Mooney Mooney is a quiet, tranquil village with an abundance of wild life. We want our guests to enjoy their stay and would hope they appreciate and are considerate of the environment.
  • Amazing trip, great view, lovely hospitality

    Daniel2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Room with a view...what I most loved about my stay was the location. It was very special looking out over the vast waters of Mooney Mooney Creek , enjoying the birdlife and weather changes. All the basics for a comfortable stay with a warm welcome from Bettine and Troy. I enjoyed a drive on the Old Pacific Highway via Holgate to Terrigal and and my favourite, Avoca. Open the car windows and listen for the Bellbirds on the forrest drive.

    Jill2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 3 nights. Everything is as described on the website. Great views, good aircon and wifi. Easy parking, clean and quiet. Wonderful to sleep with the windows and curtains open so as to wake to the beautiful view.

    Peter2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely fantastic location. Although all of Mooney Mooney unfortunately lost power on our first night (thunderstorm), Troy and Bettine were quick to make sure we were okay, offered to store our food in their fridge, let us charge our phone with their generator, and provided candles for the evening. What could have been a disaster turned into an all the more romantic two-night stay! Highly recommend.

    Escape to The Last Resort, an attractive single level house with deep water views and a shared pontoon. Boat access only - we provide you with your own little tinny. Marlow is noted for its all year round fishing and is the perfect place to enjoy boating, water sports, bushwalking or to simply escape from it all. Harmonize with nature, enjoy the spectacular sunsets and the tranquility, only occasionally broken by the abundant bird and wildlife. Featured on Channel 7 Great Outdoors in 2001.
    Serenity abounds, inspiring poets, writers and artists. Little friends to visit the front verandah (kookaburras, ducks, bush turkeys, Boots the dog). The house is supplied with mountain spring water. Brew delicious tea and coffee, and take relaxing showers after swimming on the private beach. Cook your fishing catch on the gas BBQ under its own balcony. Keep cool with air conditioning in the main room.
    Across the river, Spencer Village stores offer provisions and supplies, light meals and for the indulgent, a great cappuccino!
  • Great location Great fishing

    Sue2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The property is in a remarkable spot on the river. We had a peaceful weekend, kayaking during the day and watching the sunset in the evenings. So relaxing.

    Kirsten2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in the beautiful natural environment. There were some bugs in the house, but they were nothing compared to the previous airbnb one. It can be understood by the Australian environment. It took only five minutes to get to the boat provided. This tinny boat driving experience was good, too. We had a hard time saving water, but it was also a good memory. Thank you for good staying. Thank you Weller.

    changyoon2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot for a break. Quiet surrounds and stunning views. We loved our few days at Last Resort. Everything you need to wind down, rest and restore. The boat was a huge hit and we loved exploring the water ways and doing a bit of fishing. We’ll be back!

    Lyndal2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Spent 2 nights and was nothing short then amazing especially with the view. Having a tinny was an extra bonus and really came in handy with fishing, even though we didn’t have any luck. Reception was horrible. I’m with Vodafone and only got some signals out on the water but my partner is with Optus had notice he occasionally getting a bar in the house. So be prepared for a lot of down and peaceful, quite time. Thanks again Weller for the stay 😊

    Please note - we have not been affected by the fires. The Loft at Kyangatha; an idyllic farm stay less than an hours drive from Sydney. The Loft is a quirky sandstone and timber hideaway just 30m from the river. Set in a paddock with views of pasture, river and the hills of Popran and Dharug National Parks. Perfect for a couple (or 2+1) it is an ideal place to get away and relax. Enjoy calming walks around the property, relax by the river, go for a paddle or have a BBQ on the waters edge.
    The Loft is a quirky space that will appeal to those who love the outdoors and privacy. Designed over two levels with an outside shower and amenities under the external stairs. The ground floor has the kitchen / dining / lounge, amenities and a huge undercover deck. The galley style kitchen has a gas cooktop and microwave oven with crockery, cutlery and utensils provided. The dining / lounge area has a TV monitor for you to play movies from your computer (there is no TV reception). It opens on to a large deck with BBQ and views of the adjoining paddock and river which is a stones throw away. Upstairs is an attic style bedroom containing a double and single bed which opens on to a private balcony with fantastic views of the river and surrounding paddocks. It seems you can almost reach out and touch the river. It is a short stroll across the grass to the river (we have almost a kilometre of river frontage) that takes you to another BBQ area which has under cover outdoor setting and open BBQ. Enjoy a BBQ (we provide the settings and utensils if you don’t have any) or take one of the two kayaks for a paddle or bring your own. If you like animals we have a small herd of very curious cows. The more adventurous will wander over to you to see what is happening. We also have two friendly horses that are very happy to be patted. If they are in the Loft's paddock don’t be surprised if they come over to the deck to see what is happening! The friendliest of all though is our Cattle Dog / Kelpie cross who only loves basking in the sun more than being scratched. If you are lucky you may see the pair of magnificent sea eagles which frequently fly up the river or the pair of spectacular wedge tail eagles that hunt in the hilltops. Close by is Popran National Park with walking and mountain bike tracks. Other attractions are the choice of two public golf courses, horse riding at Glenworth Valley or boat hire and great fishing on the Hawksbury River at Spencer. It is an easy drive to charming Wollombi with its great cafes and old pub, Wisemans Ferry with its famous pub or Peats Ridge with its café, farmer's market and well received Springs Restaurant. Spencer is about 10 minutes away for a great burger, fish and chips and coffee. Tea, coffee and milk is provided on arrival. There is a coffee plunger so bring your own grind if you can't live without your particular brew. Get away from the daily grind; we dont have mobile reception (you can get that a few km down the road) and only limited wi-fi that is OK for social media but not streaming. Looking for something more comfortable or more people? Try the Barn at Kyangatha My default listing is for 2 days, however if no weekend booking has been made by Friday I am happy with 1 day for that weekend. Pls contact me Fri or Sat via Airbnb so I can make a variation.
  • Great little rustic cabin on the river. Steven is a helpful host who finds a good middle ground betweenbeing up for a friendly chat and giving you all the privacy you need. Blue dog is a handsome little guy who loves a sooky tummy rub. Nearby Popran national park and Somersby have nice waterfalls and swimming holes which we also explored. Thanks for the relaxing weekend away Steven.

    Benjamin2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying at The Loft, great set up in a peaceful location. Was perfect being right on the river and making use of the kayaks provided. Facilities were good, well equipped kitchen and and BBQ facilities. Steven was really accomodating, greeting us on check in and making sure we had everything we needed

  • The loft is such an amazing place to wind-down for a retreat to enjoy nature by the river. Steven is such a thoughtful host; kayaking equipments were provided if you would like an adventure. It also has a fully functioning kitchen with complete amenities. Highly recommend and wish we could have stayed longer. P/s:Outdoor showers was a positive experience 😆

    Ee Ling (Phoebe)2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This loft is the most beautiful farm stay experience. Steven helped us with anything we needed and let us come to feed the horses. Waking up to such a spectacular view with nothing but wildlife to listen to was very relaxing. We had robes and slippers in our room waiting for us which we made the most of. The outside shower and the animals were definitely the biggest highlight of the weekend. Blue dog was great company. Thank you so much for everything. I can’t praise this enough.

    Bianca2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin, peaceful location. Better than expected. Highly recommend. Clean and tidy. We had the best relaxing time ever. Thank you Steven for being a great host and Blue the dog for being a good company.

    My place is a light filled house close to the Hawksbury river, the garden runs down to the mangroves and water . The small suburb of Mooney Mooney is surrounded by National parks and there is great bush walking, swimming, water sports and boating in the area. There are also local restaurants, cafes and a pub and club. My place is both good for couples and solo adventurers and would be a perfect retreat for writers or other creative people.
    My house is long and narrow so is very easily able to accommodate guests who wish to be autonomous or for guests who are happy to socialise and share the different features of the house and garden whilst still having privacy with there sleeping arrangements. If you are interested in having the entire house to yourself without the host you may do so by booking both rooms for 2 people and letting the host know that this is your plan. A second room is also available to people related to the first guest , i.e. if you are wishing to have a break with another couple, friends or family.
    This area is half way between Sydney and Newcastle so is quite a convenient stop over whilst travelling or as a holiday destination that doesnt take long to drive to from Sydney . The Mugamurra national park is open to the public during August where you can see extensive rock carvings done by the original inhabitants of this area and also fantastic local rid gland flowers. It is a special treat to take a guided tour through that area and very close to here. I also run clay / pottery classes as an extra experience upon request. fees apply.
  • Jane is a great person - friendly and interesting. She is also a great potter with a fun and creative. She has a great flair for design, which shows in her pottery, the artwork in the house and the design of the house itself. Really enjoy my stay, couldn't have been more perfect! Thanks Jane hope to see you again.

    James2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had an absolutely lovely time at Jane's - she's a very generous host and her house is absolutely beautiful. Jane is full of great tips for things to do in the area and made us feel right at home. It was everything we could have asked for of a weekend away and I hope we'll be able to go back again soon.

    Karen2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s beautiful house was very comfortable to stop in for a night on a long drive — and Jane was a warm and welcoming who went out of her way to accomodate me. Would have loved to stay longer for a ceramics class but will definitely come back and stay next time in Sydney!

    Rebecca2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, with strong personality, it is a great spot to go for a self-retreat..

    Maria Del Mar2018-12-26T00:00:00Z

  • My trip at Jane's was cut short due to changing work locations. I did get to check in though and talked to Jane leading up to the booking. Very easy process and her home is very nice. Thanks Jane

    Dave2018-08-19T00:00:00Z

    This beautiful secluded property has un-interrupted water views spanning as far as the eye can see. The house backs onto acerage of native forest and has beautiful lawn areas to enjoy a drink or two whilst soaking in the magnificent views. If you are after a holiday house away from the hustle and bustle of the city this place is for you. The property is accessible by road. We do not allow large groups or parties here. Families are ok. You will have the whole property to yourself.
    This house is located in Spencer on Wisemans Ferry Road. There are a number of local convenience shops within a 10 minute drive from the house but I would recommend stocking up on groceries before you arrive. The house has recently been renovated with a brand new kitchen, new flooring throughout, new furniture and a new paint job. We have also installed new ducted Airconditiong throughout the property and have installed ceiling fans in each room upstairs, this will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. We are in the process of renovating the downstairs level but it is comfortable and secure. There is also a fire place in the lounge room upstairs. Please note I do not allow parties here. It's a beautiful peaceful space and I prefer respectful guests who will take care of the property like its their own. Every guest must be put on the reservation booking, my cleaner lives next door and can usually tell if more people than listed on booking are staying at the property. The price of this property is to accomodate water usage (we are on tank wanter and its very expensive to have it filled up given where the house it). We also provide a half barrel full of firewood, if you need more firewood please let me know and I will arrange. The driveway is quite steep and can be a little rough but most cars can drive up. Pets need to be approved before booking, please message me if bringing a pet, thank you :)
    This property is located in the quiet village of spencer. The area is known for its breathtaking views of the Hawkesbury river and mountains
  • Beautiful view, very clean and very quiet. Chris had very good communication and was very helpful. Make sure you bring all supplies and lot of books as not many activities in the area. The national park was closed while we stayed so maybe would be more to do with that open.

    Pip2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Above all else Chris was a very good host responding to our requests within minutes ! He made the place comfortable and he is extremely reliable. The place itself also gets a 100% rating because it’s just breathtakingly beautiful. Must be seen to actually believe. You will be overwhelmed as soon as you open the door. Just perfect!

    Tayla2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect weekend retreat. Great views from the house and lovely areas to sit, eat and relax. Take a boat or hire a boat to explore the amazing river!

    Christian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Mathew2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • WHAT A GREAT HOUSE! Great views! One outdoor verandah downstairs and another upstairs with huge windows. A fully functioning kitchen. Two toilets (one outside, but still very useful for a family). Three bedrooms which are separated, not neighbouring with very comfortable beds and bedding. A TV with Netflix and music for dull weather. Oh, and ducted air conditioning which was great in the late afternoon.

    Linda2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Chris’s place was wonderful, such a beautiful spot on the river and lovely decorated home. Chris was extremely helpful and quick at responding to queries. Highly recommend for a quiet weekend away.

    Ideal for one or two couples. Welcome to The Barn at Kyangatha. An idyllic farm stay less than an hours drive from Sydney. The Barn is a spacious rustic sandstone and timber hideaway with expansive views of pasture, river and the hills and bushland of Popran and Dharug National Parks. It is an ideal place to get away, relax and be reinvigorated in comfort. Enjoy calming walks around the property, relax by the river, go for a paddle or have a BBQ on the waters edge.
    The character filled barn has a fully equipped kitchen / dining area with gas cooktop, electric oven and crockery, cutlery and utensils provided. The kitchen / dining area has a fireplace and opens on to a large deck with BBQ and expansive views of the property. Upstairs is an air-conditioned spacious lounge room with TV and open queen sized bedroom and a second bedroom containing a queen and single bed. The lounge room is comfortably furnished with a "reading" area and TV viewing area. A short stroll across the paddock to the river ( we have almost a kilometre of river frontage) takes you to another BBQ area which has under cover outdoor setting s and open BBQ. Enjoy a BBQ (we provide the settings and utensils if you don’t have any) or take one of the two kayaks for a paddle or bring your own.. If you like animals we have a small herd of very curious cows. The more adventurous will wander over to you to see what is happening. We also have two friendly horses that are very happy to be patted. The friendliest of all though is our Cattle Dog / Kelpie cross who only loves basking in the sun more than being scratched. If you are lucky you may see the pair of magnificent sea eagles that frequently fly up the river or the pair of spectacular wedge tail eagles that hunt in the hilltops. Close by is Popran National Park with walking and mountain bike tracks. Other attractions are the choice of two public gold courses, horse riding at Glenworth Valley or boat hire and great fishing on the Hawksbury River. It is an easy drive to charming Wollombi with its great cafes and old pub, Wisemans Ferry with its famous pub or Peats Ridge with its café, farmer's market and well received Springs Restaurant. Spencer is about 10 minutes away for a great burger, fish and chips and coffee. Tea, coffee and milk is provided on arrival. There is a coffee plunger so bring your own grind if you can't live without your particular brew. Get away from the daily grind; we don't have mobile reception (you can get that a few km down the road) and only limited wi-fi that is OK for social media but not streaming. Looking for something more rustic / quirky? Try the Loft at Kyangatha Please note; The base price is for up to two people. My default listing is for 2 days, however if no weekend booking has been made by Friday I am happy with 1 day for that weekend. Pls contact me Fri or Sat via Airbnb so I can make a variation.
  • Beautiful ,beautiful experience !!! Definitely recommend this getaway. Steven is a great host and was just a call away. Extremely tidy place and friendly animals on the property. The place had amazing timber work and such thoughtful touches to the rooms as well. The place is close to the city yet so tranquil and serene and the sunrise is to die for!

    Sunaina2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Steven's barn was incredible. We were warmly greeted by Steven and Blue Dog upon entering the property. When Steven realised that we unwisely didn't bring any food with us he kindly invited us in for dinner. Steven's hospitality was amazing, always making sure we had everything we needed and that we were comfortable during our stay. He and his partner went above and beyond even offering us fresh produce from their garden to make sure we had enough to eat. The barn was extremely clean and had everything you needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay Steven, we hope to be back again soon!

    Keegan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I had such a beautiful time at Steven’s farm. The vibe there is so tranquil. When we first arrived there was a power outage so Steven and family did anything they could to ensure that we had power from their generator to get us by. The power came back on the next day and we were so grateful for that air con as it was quite a warm one. The animals were lovely and blue dog is an absolute champ. It’s definitely worth a visit.

    Clarine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my friend stayed with three kids for weekend and we absolutely love this place. Steven is a wonderful hoist. The kids enjoyed playing with the Blue dog and were spending a lot of time outside.

    Yana2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Spending a quiet New Years at Stevens was exactly what we needed. It was scorching hot but the fans and aircon worked well as did swimming in the river. The views across the cow paddock and regular visits from Blue Dog (who we wanted to take home with us) made it a lovely getaway. Thanks Steven for being so welcoming!

    Anna2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful, relaxing stay with thoughtful hosts. The animals are welcoming, the river is great for kayaking and cooling off, and the accommodation itself is beautiful and comfortable. We hope to stay again!

    Ami2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay. Really beautiful location and a stylish comfortable home. Has everything you need. Enjoyed a kayak trip to Spencer. And had lots of fun with the wonderful Bluedog. Highly recommended

    Adrian2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Steven’s place is wonderfully relaxing, an amazing piece of land that is all it is advertised to be. We would highly recommended. Steven is very helpful, friendly and an awesome host. There is lots to do in the local area and so close to SYDNEY even though it feels a millions miles away. The best thing to do though is hang with Blue Dog on the deck and just take in the farm itself.

    The Hawkesbury River Hide Out is only accessible by boat and is located on the unique Hawkesbury River settlement of Bar Point. Bar point is a natural wonderland and sits under the ancient sand stone escarpments that line the magical Hawkesbury River. The cottage itself we call the river shack. It is very basic and charming but has everything you need to enjoy a few days away from the world. jump off the jetty and swim, bush walk or just sit on the veranda and drink wine and eat oysters.
    Brooklyn, which is 50 minutes north of Sydney, is the closest town to Bar Point where you can hire a boat to drive over, take the riverboat postman and collect all supplies before heading over. There are lovely seafood restaurants and Brooklyn is a thriving tourist hotspot renown for its seafood, particularly oysters.
    Bar Point is surrounded by national park and of course sits on the river and is breaming with native flora and fauna. It really is hard to believe that we are only an hour north of Sydney.

  • This. One of the best Airbnb’s so far we have stayed at. The place is done up tastefully with adequate pint of amenities. A place that is a must visit.

    Pranav2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Olivia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Awsome spot, realxing and quiet, plenty of fishing straight off the jetty to be done. Bush walks and the ship wreck is really close to go and visit via boat or kayak.

    Kelly2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a special place. Amazing location and privacy. Friendly relaxed and generous host who made us feel welcome, safe and at ease. We jumped off the jetty, played music, watched the weather, went for a short hike, played uno, cooked, watched movies. There’s every kitchen utensil you could think of, if such things matter. We just loved this place. Highly recommend!

    Sarah2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

The cozy boat house was perfect for our little family and had everything we needed, Daniel greeted us on check in and was a friendly, easy going host. We had a great time, and wouldn’t hesitate recommending Daniel’s place to anyone!

    A secluded escape just a 20 minute water taxi ride from Brooklyn, The River Cottage is the perfect place to relax and reset.
    Surrounded by national park and nestled in one of the most secluded inlets of the Hawkesbury River, Marramarra Creek is truly one of the best keep secrets in Sydney. This north facing eco house looks across the water to the towering cliffs beyond, promising tranquility the moment you arrive. After arriving by water taxi or your own boat - The River Cottage is tidal boat access only - enjoy lazy days overlooking the water, fishing from the jetty, a spot of bush walking or a long lunch at nearby Peats Bite (www.peatsbite.com.au). The River Cottage has a double Queen bed in the open plan upstairs bedroom and two sofa beds downstairs and best suits a couple. There's a fully equipped kitchen, microwave, stove, toaster, Nespresso machine, BBQ, DVD library and iPhone/iPod sound system. The River Cottage is the perfect place to finish that book, start writing your own (Oscar-winning producers, writers and novelists have stayed at The River Cottage) or simply unwind on the private pontoon in the abundant sun as the pelicans swim by. Only 90 minutes total travel time from the Sydney CBD, The River Cottage is a world away from roads, noise and stress. Please note that the house accommodates two only (one queen bed) and there is a sofa bed that can be used for children/guests etc. The cottage consists of a large upstairs bedroom and downstairs living area on the water's edge with living room, bathroom and kitchen. Linen (sheets, pillow cases) is supplied however you'll need your own bath and hand towels plus any linen for additional guests if there are more than two staying. The River Cottage is boat access only, and water taxi bookings can be made via Hawkesbury Taxis (0422 300 100). Or BYO boat, or rent one in Brooklyn (www.brooklyncentral.com.au). Cost from the nearest pickup point (near Hawkesbury River bridge) is approximately $130 each way. Note that the River Cottage is situated in pristine national park and is surrounded by bush, meaning there is abundant life up there and all that goes with being in an isolated natural habitat. As the house is on a tidal part of the river and accessible by boat only it is difficult for us to respond to emergency requests quickly, but we'll do our absolute best. Due to the tides access may not be possible at low tides for up to a few hours. Our rental price is set to take into account these variables, so we ask you be conscious that a trip to Marramarra Creek is an adventure - and not with the things you may take for granted in a luxury beach house accessible by land! That said, all our guests fall in love with this hidden gem of the river and many end up wanting to buy in the area.
    The settlement at Marramarra Creek is a secluded and peaceful enclave. Please respect the privacy of the neighbours and limit any noise or disturbance. And please - no jet skis.

  • Be prepared to be lost in the serenity and creative space of Jacqui's original indoor outdoor home. The warmth of the owner and the sharing of her wonderful home is refreshing, renewing and makes for a perfect escape for the rigours of city life. Embrace the magic of the isolation, the wildlife and flora and come away with the sense of wonder that is on Sydney's secret doorstep. We celebrated a significant milestone and have wonderful memories to reminisce in this hidden paradise. We were able to declutter our busy thoughts, rejoice in our selves and celebrate in this special place. You will be hard pressed to find a better host who truly lets you into what's best about Bar Point after getting to know your motivations to search for this secluded and magical retreat.

    Audrey2019-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • As everyone says, Jacqui is a consummate hostess with the mostest. She greeted us like old friends, drinks at the ready, and then enthused us with tales of tides, island life and great tips on how to make the best of our stay. Then she left us to enjoy our idyllic place in the clouds, which we most happily did! This is definitely a place to return to.

    Rachel2019-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Just what it looks like: a fabulous, unique cabin on the edge of the bush, 50m from the Hawkesbury. Wish I'd had longer.

    Luke2019-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We decided to book an impromptu trip away from the hassles of the city and weren’t disappointed. Jacqui gave us a warm welcome and we had a fantastic time staying in the quirky Sheila Shack and checking out the beautiful surroundings and wildlife. Thoroughly recommended!

    Andrew2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jacqui’s little shack was absolutely lovely to stay in. My partner and I felt completely relaxed and loved being among all the nature. It was great fun to cook on the open fire. We grilled prawns and veggies. Highly recommend staying here!

  • One of the best Airbnb I have stayed at. If you like private unique accommodation don't hesitate to book. Very comfortable and Jacquie has added some luxurious touches. Bugs were not an issue at all and barely encountered a mozi. Will stay again soon.

The layout is great too from every seating area a different view of river or mountains . 6x seats at every seating location so no one ever has to struggle to fit in. Easy check in with lock box Will go again

    Martyn2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is incredible! It’s set up perfectly for entertainment. The view is beautiful you could sit on the porch for hours watching the water. There is a private jetty and use of their kayaks and they have games and activities at the house. Can’t recommend enough

    Katrina2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome 😎 beautiful view Close to the water and mountains . A lot of equipment for us use . We Played kayak and fishing . Wonderful experience. Sorry take your table inside . We forgot to put it back .

    Luo2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed staying at Anchor's Ahoy on the Hawkesbury. We caught eel, bream and flathead off the private jetty using prawns from a local shop a 2 minute walk away. There's a fun games area with mini golf, badmington, ping pong, bowling, bocce and more. Loved our BBQ meals at night on the verandah. We would definitely consider staying here again, thanks so much for creating a special space where we created great memories with our family.

    Christy2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Anchor's Ahoy is truly a haven! We had the best time. Like the previous reviews mention, it has everything you need and more. Yummy basket of goodies as well. Communication was good and self check-in easy. The house is very stylish but the highlight for us was the veranda with that spectacular view, awesome!

    Aneldari2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a great little getaway. Less than 1.5 hrs drive from Nth Sydney and an easy drive. The house is really well set up. As there is no places to eat out, it means you need to take supplies and cook. This is quite fine because as far as cooking, this place has everything. BBQ, pizza maker, slow cooker, pots, pans, mixers, etc, etc. This means you don't have to leave the place. The air conditioning worked really well when needed (which is was as it was 46 degrees one day) We stayed inside and stayed cool. The beds and pillows are great also. The private jetty with fishing gear and kayaks is a great touch. Sitting on the balcony during any part of the day and looking out over the water and the beautiful green forest was mesmerising and just so relaxing. Would we come back. YES

  • Staying with Caroline and Glenn for a few days was such a pleasure and chance. We felt so great there that we decided to extend our stay! The house is so nice and cosy, beautifully decorated with great taste. Caroline and Glenn are wonderful host and we feel so blessed to have met them, and so will the future guests! Thank you for your kindness and warmth, it felt like home. See you again somewhere, sometimes...

    Loren2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • As Glenn said a few times Mooney Mooney remains a relative secret and really impressed us. The area is easily missed but is so close to Sydney and offers such an escape. We took bicycles and felt quite comfortable biking to Brooklyn across the old pacific highway bridge which offers boat hire (strongly recommend, even for those without license), a train station and a decent pub. There is a moderately upscale club walking distance from the air bnb that served pretty good food too. The house itself was great, very unique and felt well suited to the amazing location overlooking the Hawkesbury. From a large room with piano and queen sized bed you look out over the relatively private deck at their pool to the water. The house is off the old pacific highway and easy to miss with a pretty steep driveway. It has two levels with the bedroom on the lower with a door out to the deck and pool. Upstairs a beautiful bathroom with bath and gorgeous shower plus seperate toilet and large cooking/dining and lounge split level. We mostly ate out but there are ample amenities for cooking and Caroline and Glenn (and their very sweet dog Rosie) were very friendly. I can imagine this place suiting lots of different people. From those passing through on their way to and from Sydney it serves as a relaxing stop off. For Sydney siders its a real hidden treat so close to the city but so immediately in nature. It offers amazing access to the Hawkesbury and Brooklyn has great options for fishing boat, BBQ boat and tinny hire. Whilst we didn't look into it i think there are great bushwalks nearby. Or just sit in the sun on your private deck looking at the amazing view over the Hawkesbury.

  • This home was a perfect getaway from a busy environment. It was secluded but very safe. The house is nestled between trees with a beautiful mountain range and lake views. The spa and pool were a great add to the house. It was spacious and had plenty of room for 6 people. It was a great stay!

    Heba2019-10-10T00:00:00Z

  • This is the perfect spot for an escape away from everything. On the river away from it all yet easy to get to by boat from anywhere in Pittwater, Bobbin Head or Brooklyn. The boatshed has a wonderful feel about it, right on the water with lots of comfortable spots to relax and watch the world go by. You've also got everything you need to eat and sleep well too. Highly recommended.

    Bill2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for an amazing, unique and private place full of interesting details, right on the water and I mean right in the water do not hesitate to book the Oxley Boatshed. There are little cool details in every corner- a private beach with sandstone steps at the right tide, lots of nooks and crannies for all the members of the family. It’s like being in a lovingly restored barn that’s kinda like an art gallery placed on the waters edge. The photos don’t capture the true atmosphere. Thank Jacqui...we will be back!

    Nicole2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious and peaceful! We stayed for a weekend and with Jacqui's help we planned a fabulous weekend, including lunch at Peat's Bite (AMAZING!), lunch at Spencer Village Store (great burgers) and a boat hired from Brooklyn Central. There was loads of room for our family of four and we had a fantastic weekend. We'd definitely be back! Tip: bring lots of firewood!

    Deborah De2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing gem. Absolutely loved the boathouse. Tastefully styled with everything you could need . We were a group of four adults and there was so much space . Loved every minute of it. We would definitely return to Oxley.

    Catherine2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Oxley Boatshed exceeded all expectations. Such a beautiful location which took us all by surprise on arrival. We took plenty to eat and drink for the weekend and therefore had no real need to leave the property. Nor would you want to. Waking up to the sun streaming through the windows and jumping straight in the river was a highlight. Jacqui was terrific to deal with providing much information before our arrival. Certainly an great and easy getaway option for anyone living in Sydney and definitely plan on returning.

If you seek quality down time without digital distractions...this is your place! Two queen size bedrooms with very comfortable mattresses flank the living room and all rooms look out onto great view. Noting we travelled with an 85 year old with limited mobility and it was very comfortable and easy for her to navigate inside. (Just a few steps up from dock to the home.)

    Farm stay on 30 acres of tranquil country side. Relax in front of the cozy fire in the two bedroom cottage overlooking the breathtaking views of the Hawkesbury River or head outdoors for some bush walking, swimming, fishing, canoeing and more!
    The two bedroom cottage is found on our 30 acre property which backs onto the Hawesbury River and is surrounded by scenic views of the mountain. Depending on the time of year we have many animals on the property including steer, alpaca, sheep and chickens. Take a short walk down to the chicken pen in the morning to collect eggs for breakfast. In winter the cottage is made extremely cozy by the indoor fire and in summer air conditioning keeps the cottage cool. The cottage contains main bedroom with queen sized bed, second bedroom with two king single beds, bathroom with shower and separate toilet, lounge/dining room with fireplace and kitchen. The kitchen has all the basics except an oven. Most guests cook on the bbq, the electric hot plates or microwave. The verandah has table and chairs and is a great location for eating meals and relaxing with a good book.
    Lower Mangrove is a very scenic place to visit. There are lots of outdoor activities available in the area. At the end of the road there is a bush walk with aboriginal artefacts. The nearby town of Spencer has a corner store where you can have a yummy breakfast or lunch by the water. They also sell general supplies and alcohol. A meal up the hill at The Springs golf course is a must.
  • Really cute cabin and yummy eggs!

  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the farm - there was so much to do! My daughter loved seeing the animals and collecting the eggs in the morning. We all enjoyed having a paddle in the canoe or the row boat on the river.

    Tommy2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in this lovely location And made good use of the canoe to explorer the river. Fresh eggs from the hens for breakfast was a bonus.

  • Wow! What a place. We had the best time at the retreat. The house is right on the water with expansive views over the Hawkesbury River. Nestled within the trees the house was tranquil and peaceful. We switched off from the world no phone, no internet just cosy days and nights by the fire taking in the view. Taking the boat for a spin to Spencer up river for breakfast was a particular highlight. James the manager was really kind, and helpful. We will definitely be back, next time for longer!

  • Sheer Bliss. Loved the views, the location and the well appointed home. The private jetty is an added bonus. We met the friendly neighbours and one neighbour kindly shared freshly caught Blue Swimmer Crabs with us - True Hawkesbury hospitality. We cannot wait to return for a week again next year. Thank you.

  • Gorgeous place

    Renee2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most relaxing holidays you could take. Bar Point is a beautiful place and the house is incredible with the the Hawksbury lapping at the base of the house. We met a couple of locals and had one of the best lunches at Local restaurants. Everything you need is at the house so you are completely self sufficient. It was beautiful and clean, waking up to such views was one of life’s great pleasures. We would highly recommend this getaway and will be back again.

    Matthew2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely superb. A stunning location and a gorgeous house made for a wonderfully relaxing long weekend. Thoughtful touches like having the music and the heating on when we arrived made the experience even more special. Thanks so much Jacqui.

    An island style escape - Stunning oak A-frame Waterfront home Accessible by water only! The house has proved to be a great success for extended families, for families who wish to entertain their overseas guests or relatives or just for a great family holiday to spend some quality time with family or friends. There is something to do for all ages. Fishing, kayaking, boating, walks or just take in the wildlife, serenity. water views and clean air (no cars on Barpoint)
    I am not offering accommodation…I am offering a lifestyle/ holiday resort that only the very rich can afford but who don’t have the time to enjoy it. Perched only 60 metres away from the private jetty, the home itself is an entertainer’s delight. It melds perfectly to be what you need it to be - fantastic fishing cabin for a weekend away with the boys, base camp for exploring local wildlife, beach house with plenty of areas to relax for a weekend escape, clubhouse with games, firepit, pool table and ping pong for a family tribe on school holidays. My dream with this home is to provide a space which caters to anything you could wish to do in this pristine location. And, I have to say, so far, so good. Assuming you are lucky enough to know some millionaire, who will give you their holiday house FREE for a weekend, You will still be more out of pocket if you had to hire the kayaks, wash the linen farm out the dogs to kennels, pay for fire wood and leave a small gift to say “thank you” and live with the debt that you may feel you owe them… Don’t bother.. You don’t need them anymore. You have it all at my house...and to annoy them, just invite them for a BBQ.. You can even offer to pick them up on my boat..!! And if you are generous enough let them stay overnight telling them they don’t have to wash the linen when they leave. Unfortunately, it still cost quite a bit to stay here (and will stay so until my bank manager lets me off my mortgage repayments…don’t hold your breath), however if you take the cost of heating your house, going to restaurants, kennelling the dogs etc from the cost and divide the remainder (if any) between 2 full families, 4 couples or 10 friends you will realise just what good value you are getting. No cars on the "island", no traffic no smog just pure air and great views.. The front yard is the river where you can fish ski kayak ... The immediate back yard is enclosed and comes with an outdoor shower, BBQ and a Huge fire pit. On the other side of the backyard is the Popran National park where you can hike, walk down the only road (or path) Kalinda road, get some free fire wood or just take in the nature. If the bush is a bit rough for you then walk on the grassed reserve in front of the house which is more of an extended garden than a reserve. Visit the local Post office and see how post offices were some centuries back (open 24/7) You can even fish from the post office when the postman has gone. Visit the historic Bar island with the church ruins and grave stones (boat access only) or simply explore the waterways with your boat or mine. Now for something different How often have you gone shopping or to restaurant by boat??? Now is your opportunity with numerous shops, restaurants and bars that can be accessed by boat. There is something for all. All you have to do is book early to ensure no disappointments
    Bar Point is located in the Popran nature reserve. Many houses are occupied by full time residents. Due to the water, no cars and any commercial activity, the place is extremely quiet and peaceful, so much so that if you are quite you will hear the fish jumping in the water and the tides lapping on the shore from the balcony of the house .Noise seems to carry very easily in this area and hence we ask our guest to keep it low after 10PM.
  • A spacious clean fun house with an obliging host right next door

    Flavia2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • David was a great host who helped us throughout the stay without a second notice. The location is stunning and great! Definitely recommend the VIP package!

    Kevin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great Spot, Great Host, Excellent BBQ - highly recommended.

    Mark2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is spacious, percect for families. There is a spectacular view of the Hawksbury River from the large windows in the living room. David was very friendly and hospitable. It was an overall relaxing experience and our family enjoyed a wonderful vacation here.

    Athar2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • David’s place is located in the most beautiful spot, the view is everything you can hope it would be. The VIP package is a delightful addition. So unusual to find a house this size with 5 double beds (and not bunk beds) excellent! David was thoroughly helpful and friendly host. Excellent entertainment area, pool/air hockey/cards table/fire pit. It’s great.

    Helena2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • WOW! What a grea place and David is a legend himself. We will be back

    Christopher2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Just got back from two days escape holiday. The place turned out to be even better than it looked on the pictures. Location is beautiful, house is spacious, and it has everything you would like to have: from all nessesities like shower towels, glasses etc. to American pool, ping pong and buggy car! One more amazing thing about the place: The boat! Highly recommend to get it. It’s so good: comfy seats for 6-7 people, place holders for sparklin wine or other drinks, breez and some music on board - it was just perfect for celebrating my 30th anniversary. Btw, no license needed for that boat. All in all it was an amazing holiday. Thanks a lot David. We are going to come to see you again very soon!

    Magical spot on the Hawkesbury River
    THE MILSON The Milson is no ordinary river house, more boutique hotel. The luxury fit out includes both custom made features and antique elements. These combine to create a very casual atmosphere in a pristine setting all less than a one hour drive from the Sydney CBD. There's no better place to relax and unwind on the Hawkesbury and for those who want to add in a bit of action, you can explore the river using our kayaks and canoes. You can also go crabbing (we catch mud and blue swimmer crabs from the end of the jetty from September through to June), spend the day out on the water fishing, visit one of the Hawkesbury’s many hidden inlets and sandy beaches or head out for a bush walk. The Milson is also one of the few properties in the area that is north facing so we get maximum sunshine on winter days and enjoy the afternoon shade in the summer. KITCHEN, DINING AND LIVING AREAS The gourmet kitchen is set-up with polished concrete bench tops, a 5-burner gas stove, oven and range hood, a large fridge and freezer and a dishwasher. The kitchen comes well-stocked with top-quality pots and pans, knives, Nespresso machine, AeroCinno, Neutribullet and a walk-in pantry stocked with all the basics (you will receive a full list of all that's in the kitchen on booking). The comfortable lounge area includes a sofa covered in Belgian linen and comfy chairs with feather cushions all positioned around a beautiful Chiminees Phillip wood burning fireplace. There is also a seperate dining room that overlooks the river and jetty. Please note: firewood is BYO or at an additional cost we can arrange for a wood package to be delivered to the house with the fire place set up and ready to be lit You can also sit out on the deck on the rustic wicker chairs out or on the lawn around the fire pit and listen to the water lapping on the beach and watch the fish jumping in the river. The Milson also has a beautiful built-in BBQ with wok burner or you can use the giant Brazilian style skewers to slow cook your dinner over the fire pit. The Milson also comes with wifi and a UeBoom (blue tooth linked speaker) but it does not have a TV, washing machine or dryer. BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS The Milson has two king bedrooms. The king beds are fitted with luxurious Sheridan sheets, 100% Australian wool underlays for extra warmth in the winter, two sets of pillows, feather duvets, beautiful alpaca throws, bedside lights and power points. Both bedrooms also come with large ensuites (almost 6 square meters). The back bedroom ensuite has a large stone bath with shower above. The front bedroom ensuite has an enormous walk-in shower. Both ensuites are tiled floor to ceiling with river stones, have custom made industrial copper plumbing and taps, enormous 12'' shower-heads, vaulted cathedral ceilings, vintage cabinets retro fitted as bathroom vanities and heated floors which (heaven in the colder months!). WATER TOYS There's a single and a double canoe, a single kayak, life vests, paddles, crab pots and a couple of fishing rods. The Hawkesbury is renowned for its fishing. Please note that for insurance reasons you will have to bring your own tackle, hooks and bait. PETS Dogs are very welcome at The Milson and while they are allowed inside the house we ask that you keep them off of the furniture and the beds. The property has a lovely sandy beach and there are paths running along the river’s edge and behind the property so that you can take your furry friends out for a walk. We also ask that you keep your pets on a leash when you're out walking given the abundant wild life and not all of the neighbours love dogs as much as we do. IMPORTANT BOOKING INFORMATION Prices are based on 2 guests (in one of the two bedrooms) and an additional charge is made for each additional guest (second bedroom). Prices are based on 2 guests using 1 of 2 bedrooms. There is a charge of $100 per stay for cleaning and linen for 1 bedroom. If 2 guests require both bedrooms the cleaning fee is $200. All rooms come complete with bed linen and bath towels for each guest.
    Milsons Passage has no roads, no cars, no cafes, no shops. This is what makes is magical. We have a very well stocked pantry with all the basics that you are welcome to use. You will need to be organised and bring all the food you need, there is a small bottle/grocery shop at Brooklyn if you need supplies.
  • Had a lovely weekend at Debra's gorgeous place on the river. House was incredibly stylish, immaculate and brilliant for cooking. Very relaxing vistas too. Only downside was the rough weather in a place only accessible by boat, which interrupted the ability of the water taxi to collect us. Would still highly recommend though, just be sure of the weather in advance.

    Kate & Stella2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful, relaxing and special place. You won’t regret staying here. Host is awesome and the house is amazing, very well stocked for an Airbnb with everything you could possibly need. Definitely will return.

    Paul2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This house is spectacular at so many levels! It’s stylish, right on the water, super well equipped and so relaxing. We absolutely loved it, it’s worth the money. We will be back for sure!

    Elise2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had an incredible stay at The Milson. Everything was exactly as described and communication with Debra was effortless. This was our first river-house stay in Sydney and the perceived difficulting of arranging a water taxi couldn't have been more incorrect; booking a short 10 min ride with Hawkesbury river taxis was simple and punctual. The remoteness of the locale only added to the relaxation factor yet still door to door from CBD in just over an hour. Excellent facilities and everything you need to cook whatever meal you're planning on. Nothing to do but relax, read, listen to music, cook, kayak and swim. 10/10, highly recommend!

    Michael2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful getaway, in a lovely stylish home right on the water and away of the city chaos. Debra was a great host and would definitely be back for another getaway. The Hawkesbury River is so beautiful and there are many beautiful spots to explore, definitely hire a tinny for your stay to experience the area. Thank you for having us, highly recommended.

    Mitch2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place for a weekend away. We had so much fun and The Milson was amazing

    Graham2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for allowing us to staying in your beautiful place. It was very relaxing and even better that we were able to bring our dog with us. The place was spotless, had all the cooking utensils that we needed and a beautiful big bath to soak in. The entire stay made for a perfect weekend get away. Now to come back in summer and enjoy the water.

    Harley2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We took our friends to The Milson for a surprise weekend. It was our first time too and we were all so excited when the water taxi arrived in front of this beautiful river house. Everything was waiting ready for us, the fire set, the lights on and music playing, it was a lovely way to arrive. We chose our bedrooms (no bad choice, both are amazing) and settled in to cook dinner in the professionally appointed kitchen. The design and decor of The Milson are beautiful - we weren’t surprised to discover this having stayed at the host’s other extraordinary property in Culburra. There is something even more relaxing though, when you are staying somewhere only accessible by water. It really is a complete break. We all enjoyed sitting on the verandah watching the diverse bird life by day and the wallabies by night. We had hired a tinny for our stay and loved our little trips to the historic Bar Island and various inlets. We were very glad we accepted the extra free day offer. It was very hard to leave and head back to the city.

    The Ultimate River Getaway. A beautifully constructed timber home, right on the water. The perfect base to explore the River. Cook up a feast in the well appointed kitchen, head out on the water, or stay nice and cozy by the fire with games or a book. Plenty of instruments for the musicians, puzzles for the patient. Everything you need for a weekend to remember.
    Sitting on southern bank of the lower end of the mighty Hawkesbury, The River House rests comfortably in the natural landscape and takes full advantage of its absolute waterfront position, with wonderful views of the river. 2 Bedrooms with queen beds, a loft with 4 bunks, and a bonus baby room with a cot. Couches inside seat six around the fire and large TV. There’s a reading chair and lamp by the fire. Bi-fold doors open on to a large deck looking out over the water. The back of the house opens on to a small courtyard and garden which backs right on to the Nature Reserve, with an easy but beautiful bush walking trail that goes right to the top of the ridge for breathtaking views west up the Hawkesbury and Berowra waters. Main house consists of 2 big bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, living dining, with fire place. Can also sleep 2 children in their own spaces.

    Waterfront home own private tidal sandy beach and pontoon. A 10 minute boat ride and you will find your riverside cottage. The main bedroom is filled with light from doors that open onto the front veranda with water views. Ideal spot for fishing, kayaking or bushwalking along the tracks to the cliff facing bar point or simply relaxing by the fire reading. This open plan home is a great space for meals and family time.
    Our 3 bedroom 2 storey cottage is water access only at Milsons Passage, a small island town on the edge of Sydney where you can hide away from the hustle of the city crowd's. The kitchen is modern and well equiped for the chef with an electric stove, microwave, 2 double sinks, coffee machine, bread making machine (bring your own bread mix)
    Milsons Passage is a unique water access only town comprising of some 40 absolute waterfront homes in the Hornsby Shire on the Hawkesbury river opposite Milsons Island. Occupied by mainly retirees and holiday homes. There are no shops, schools or cafes but available with a runabout ride back up river to several nice restaurants. Surrounded by Muogamurra Nature Reserve, the native bird and wild life is abundant so pets are to be closely supervised. It is about 15 minutes by runabout to Brooklyn and the railway station or 10 minutes to Mooney Mooney/M1, you are close enough to get away easily and relax and unwind within an hour or two.
  • Myself and 5 friends actually stayed at No. 9 Milsons Passage (Just next door). A little bit of a mix up with the booking. The property was great and Jaye had everthing sorted for us on arrival. It was about a 10 min boat ride from Brooklyn Marina (depending on the size of the engine). We weren't quite sure how well 6 people would fit in the property, but we had no issues. The space is set out very well. We particularly enjoyed to hot tub out the back. There's a nice big verandah where you can sit and watch the passing boats, and a well equipped kitchen. We cooked big dinners both nights we were there. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away with friends or the family. Once again this review is actually for No. 9.

  • Excellent host, amenities, space, location and views. What we all hope for when booking on AirBnb. 5 star rating.

    Tim2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very well appointed with lots of extras - private jetty, kayaks, hot spa, huge kitchen with everything we needed for a banquet, ducted air con upstairs, books, games and quality inclusions throughout the property that make for a relaxing escape. The bushwalking tracks behind the property up to rocky outcrop and stunning views over the Hawkesbury are well worth the effort, amazing natural beauty surrounds and hot tub at the end of the day is brilliant. The property is easy distance by boat from main boat ramp yet is so peaceful and serine. Very helpful hosts, friendly atmosphere and a unique waterfront location. Love the view down river from main bedroom. Bathroom and downstairs rooms could do with some new flooring but overall a very enjoyable home in a perfect location. We would love to return, thank you to all at Luxury Houseboats Afloat.

    Sleep in a comfortable cabin in the Australian bush in a wildlife sanctuary with kangaroos, emus, and all of their iconic Australian animal friends - koalas, possums, wombats, flying foxes, Tasmanian devils, dingoes, bilbies, turtles, cockatoos. Some are in natural camps, while many are free-ranging and may even visit your cabin, so don't forget to close the door when you go for a bush walk.
    Your cabin is a single open plan room with all the essential amenities and an ensuite toilet/shower. It is nestled in the Australian bush with the wildlife literally on your doorstep.
    Your "neighbourhood" is the Australian bush. The sanctuary gates are locked from 5pm to 8am so, like the movie "a night at the museum", you get to stay inside and watch as the bush comes alive after dark. Bring your flashlight, and easy to prefer meals and snacks, and settle in for an Aussie bush adventure.
  • This is such a special experience for nature and animal lovers. Having quiet time around the park observing our animals is beautiful. The kids loved it. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. Wonderful staff and hospitality. This is a must do for all travellers. Seeing local Aboriginal historic sites is so wonderful and easy to access.
