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.

An absolute haven

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I LOVED our stay and only wished it was longer. We relaxed out on the pontoon, enjoyed candlelit dinners out on the balcony and had a great time kayaking!! Watching the sun set through the trees was magical. The Treehouse is beautifully furnished, with all the mod cons. It felt like a 5-star hotel set in a rainforest. Will definitely be recommending this place to everyone and anyone we can!

A treasure on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home with a superb attention to detail - the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the deck was the perfect spot to look out over the trees while enjoying our food and wine. One of our highlights was enjoying a glass of champagne on the private jetty while the sun was setting over the quiet river. Magnificent!
