A highlight of any stay is sitting on the barbecue deck, glass of fizz in hand, gazing over the water and eucalyptus-clad cliffs beyond.

We spent our time exploring the waters on the courtesy boat, fishing, walking, cooking and gazing at the amazing views. Hope to return soon.

There’s something special about gazing out at the misty Hawkesbury River and its stunning backdrop of eucalyptus-clad cliffs.

Throw a line from the pontoon and there’s a good chance you’ll catch something for dinner - does it get any better than this?

Kayaking to the nearby beach was splendid, and as relaxing as the boat trip around the Hawkesbury was exciting.

What a fantastic house and beautiful spot, the only sad thing was that we couldn't stay forever!
