Impeccably appointed & beautifully maintained

  • 5 of 5

We found Wobby Beach House to be an exceptional property. It is presented impeccably (beautifully clean, perfectly maintained and well-appointed with excellent quality inclusions such as beautiful linen, cutlery, crockery, furnishings and appliances ). The showers are all hot and strong. The river side pool was so lovely to relax by. The sunset views were beautiful from the large balcony. There are dining table settings on the balcony and inside the property so that you may dine indoors or outdoors overlooking the river. The property has great mobile reception and is just 15mins by water from Brooklyn. We used the kayaks supplied to paddle about the river and we went for an easy 8km hike to Juno Point nearby during our stay. We stay each year for a weekend around the Hawkesbury and Wobby Beach House has been the most impressive accommodation we've enjoyed to date.

Fantastic weekend. Great place to stay

Three couples spent a very hot long weekend at the Beach House. This place is fantastic. Very nicely decorated and modern, great layout, all conveniences including a great riverside swimming pool. Our hosts were very helpful and the overall experience was great!

Fantastic house on the water

  • 5 of 5

I have used Stayz for a number of years and never left a review until now. This spot was just so awesome. Great house, facilities, pool, location & communication from the owner. We got a late checkout which was wonderful and allowed us to make the most of our time there. So close to Sydney but it feels a world apart. This will certainly be a house I will stay in again. Thank you so much.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

In Wobby Beach House we really found a little piece of heaven. It was equally a great place to explore the river and bush or to just sit by the pool or on the veranda and enjoy doing not much at all! The view was amazing, especially at sunset.Our hosts had thought of everything and the house was well equipped and spotlessly clean. We'd defy anyone not to unwind and enjoy a stay at the house. Thank you

Pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this property. The pool is fantastic, right on the water. So peaceful with great sunsets. I suggest renting a runabout in case you need any supplies. We will be a return customer.
