Relaxing and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Scott for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was cosy and warm with the fire on the cold nights. The house is very tastefully decorated and has lots of thoughtful touches. We particularly appreciated the pantry with basic sauces and the little jars of jam and nice supply of coffee. The location is an ideal place to stop and recharge. We enjoyed the many little places to sit and enjoy the view of the Hawkesbury.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location with amazing views from the house and deck. Very relaxing. House has everything you need and the cleanest and neatest house I've ever stayed in, kitchen had lots of extra condiments. Log fire great, made house toasty warm. Kayaks easy to launch into river. The Dharug national park walk 5 minutes away was great.

The Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at The Treehouse to celebrate his birthday. The Treehouse was everything we could of hoped for as a perfect weekend getaway. The styling and attention to detail to ensure your stay is comfortable and a true 'home away from home' was one of the first things we noticed. The design of the house is so unique and unlike anything we had stayed in before. The view of the Hawkesbury is so beautiful from inside and outside of the house. We fished, kayaked, lounged by the water watching the jellyfish float by, played cards, read books, laughed, drank and just simply enjoyed each other's company in this beautiful part of the world. I would recommend you bring all of your food and drinks with you as you won't want to leave once you arrive. The house is very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, bedroom and outside at the BBQ. Everything you need for outdoor entertainment is setup and ready for you as well as lots of games and movies if you choose to stay indoors. The mosquitos can be ferocious so make sure you wear lots of repellant prior to arriving and during your stay. Repellant is provided at the house. We had such a wonderful time away and the 5pm checkout available on the Sunday allowed us to enjoy the maximum amount of time over the weekend. We have already recommended The Treehouse to many of our family and friends and we can't wait for the next opportunity to return again.

Nick Drake, Simon & Garfunkel, and 4 days unplugged

  • 5 of 5

The owners leave this bush paradise just beautifully prepared. We were staying to celebrate my wife’s significant birthday, and left rested and inspired thanks to the hows-the-serenity experiences (she moved into the daybed by the river each afternoon, while the young’uns) paddled up and down & I cooked feasts. There’s everything you need in the kitchen, and it’s beautkfullu set out. The birthday present had been the guitar she had been lusting after for a decade, and between delighting in homespun tunes from the spectacular deck, we found the CD collection had three of our favourite guitar-songwriters in it - Drake, Simon, & Garfunkel. Match that with the wonderful lack of 21st century “always on” connectivity (tho yes, if you have Telstra, signal is good!), and it was the perfect unplugged experience - yet so close to busy Sydney & home!

The energy here was so “us”. We hope we can come back.
