What a magical place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary! Beautiful views. Wonderful food. Lazy paddling. Leisurely boating. Serene nature walks. We have enjoyed every minute.
My partner and I had a beautiful relaxing weekend away kayaking, boating and relaxing all weekend in the sun! Great place for families, friends and couples! Highly recommend it!
Just back from a top weekend at this first class property. Great location and a 5 star service from Manny. Very very relaxing. A perfect spot for those who also love bush walking.
Wow!! What a wonderful weekend. Love this place. We have had such a great time sharing good food, good wine and great company in this beautiful setting.
What a great way to unwind and spend time with the family. Lovely house and location - we never realised this existed so close to Sydney.
We spent a wonderful 3 days at this idyllic house. The property is stunning and the views are to die for. This place is relaxation at it's best.
We spent 3 lovely nights at your beautiful property. The place was perfect, catering to our every need. I wish we could have stayed longer.
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?
Calabash Bay truly is a beautiful spot... Many thanks for your efficient and friendly service, the whole experience was a pleasure.
Thank you for sharing this magnificent house with us. It was the most wonderful surprise 50th I could have asked for!
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!
Had a great time, didn’t want to come home! We will all have great memories of our time away together.
It’s summertime (well, almost) and the living is easy for the highglam, low-fuss weekend traveller
It was such an experience getting picked up by a boat and taken to this wonderful holiday home
We’ve found the perfect weekend escape – an idyllic lodge set on the Hawkesbury
It was a really lovely two whole nights away which seems like a wonderful dream now!

From day one… we feel as through we’ve moored at our spiritual home
One of Sydney's hidden treasures and my favourite holiday destination.
Who knew that feeling so far away was possible so close to home?
