About our home

Only 45 minutes north of the Sydney CBD, the azure water, pristine eucalypt bush and 200 million year old Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs of Berowra Waters will seduce you. Surrounded by 360 degrees of national park, our luxury escape offers guests the experience of the Australian way of life on the absolute waterfront, with all the attendant perks, right on the edge of our bustling national metropolis.

All rooms have north-facing floor to ceiling views to a 4km sweep of riverfront that ends at our private pontoon and waterfront garden. We have four bedrooms, two with king sized AH Beard luxury beds that can convert to twins, and 2 with queen Sealy Posturepedic beds. All bedrooms have access to outdoor balconies, and two have private ensuite bathrooms with shower, while one large bathroom with bath and shower is shared between two bedrooms.

Our interior-designed indoor and outdoor entertaining and lifestyle zones feature contemporary International and Australian design from B&B Italia, Viccarbe, Kartell, Planet & Coco Republic, and essential modern amenities, including high speed wireless broadband, Samsung 2013 SmartTV, Foxtel Platinum HD Cable TV service, Sonos wireless stereo system, Wii games console, DVD player, plus a AppleTV & MiniMac media centre.

The real entertainment is outdoors on the Hawkesbury River however, with use of a runabout boat for fishing and adventuring, 1 double and 3 single kayaks, as well as fishing rods and a crab pot to try your luck at catching dinner included. You can swim year round directly off our private pontoon, or take the boat for a spin to a nearby secluded beach.

For those craving more relaxation, savour the atmosphere waterside in our hanging pod chair, on the Brazilian hammock under the shade of our jacaranda tree, or our French striped deck chairs. Or spend the afternoon lazing on the B&B Italia day bed on the upstairs terrace, soaking up the magical atmosphere of life on the waterfront from above.

We can also arrange a private chef to cook for you in house, or provide self-catering meals for you, or arrange a shopping service to request. If you feel like spoiling yourself further, massage and spa therapists can also provide services in house.

The nearby boat-access only restaurants of Berowra Waters Inn and Peats Bite, offer a unique experience of dining out at the water's edge. We can assist with reservations and water taxis as required.

The property is also eco-friendly, running on GreenPower energy, a septic waste system and is cleaned with chemical-free products, so as to have the lowest footprint on our pristine natural environment.

Four legged friends are welcome to join you on an outdoors only basis and a pet bond would apply.

For Points bookings, a AUD$500 fee applies per booking which covers the cost of cleaning, linen, fuel for use in our boat, arrival and departure transfers by boat (as we are water-access only). A security deposit will also be organised to cover accidental damage/breakages.

We apologise but we are unable to accept points bookings during school holiday peak periods and public holiday long weekends, but we do accept paid rentals during these times.

Please check our availability calendar first and submit a request with a date request.
