A vote for the LOWER DECK

I don't know where to start with thanking you both for our amazing stay. We absolutely loved it. Every bit of it.

We've jumped on and written a review and voted too. If we were lucky enough to win the voucher we would use it to help us book an even longer stay at The Lower Deck!

Ruth - July 2014

Honeymoon at The LOWER DECK

"We are very glad we chose The Lower Deck as the place to stay while we celebrated our wedding on the Hawkesbury. The accommodation is luxurious and beautifully appointed, and the view and outlook are peaceful and serene, even on a rainy day!

. We were made to feel very special, finding a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting us as we arrived back from our wedding reception. We can't wait to come and stay again, perhaps every anniversary! Thank you Robert and Bernice for a wonderful stay."

Ellen - April 2014

We saw an abundance of wild life

"There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our stay was at The Deck. Prior to our arrival, I received a huge amount of support in planning a surprise for my husband and felt that we were not just being 'booked in', we were truly being catered for. Transfers and catering arrangements were taken care of effortlessly.

The beautiful Bali inspired interior design made the place feel homely and luxurious. The ridiculously comfortable robes were a wonderful touch along with the complimentary sarongs. We didn't want for anything during our stay because it had already been thought out for us.

The views from each level of the property were incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed taking the boat out along the river. We saw an abundance of wildlife in and out of the river and had a great time fishing in the boat and just off the deck itself. To sum up our experience, I can only describe our stay as pure relaxation. The serenity of The Deck meant it was the perfect break from the city.

We would greatly recommend staying at The Deck and look forward to returning in the near future."

Alexa - March 2014


"What a haven you've created! We feel privileged to have enjoyed it - if only it had been for longer… Your care and attention to detail is beyond impressive making for the perfect environment to relax and unwind.

We found everything we could possibly need. Thank you for our much needed couple of days by the river in your beautiful "Lower Deck".

Louise & Tony - April 2014

We will be back

"Thank you very much for the great weekend! The place was a joy and we will be back!

I will be recommending this place"

Fabulously furnished.

A comfortable and cosy place to stay for a decadent and relaxing weekend. Rob showed us the ropes and gave us use of the tinny to explore the waterway and access the variety of places to eat. We had a great time and hope to be back another weekend.

Our Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Lower Deck many times over the last 5 years and every time is subtlely different but equally beautiful and tranquil - regardless of the weather or the season. It is incredible that you can be 45 minutes from the city, yet in another world. Whether you fancy fine dining at Berowra Waters Inn or a freshly caught mud crab off the pontoon out front, cayaking, bush walking or just lazing on the sun lounge. There is no better spot on the majestic Hawkesbury River and no finer host than Rob.

The most relaxing of stays

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully relaxing stay, started off by being picked up by boat from the marina and delivered to the pontoon, with Rob waiting to greet us - peace, quiet and tranquility - kayaks, bbq, fire, sunshine - Rob was a very engaging and helpful host, even giving us the surprise of a freshly caught and prepared mud crab to take away with us! We have stayed at a number of places around NSW and this is the equal of any to get away from it all in beautiful surroundings - will return

Amazing, perfect, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was fresh and clean. Everything we needed for an amazing, relaxing and refreshing weekend was there.

The owner is friendly, but gives you plenty of privacy. He provides everything you need and even a few little extras which is very thoughtful.

We used the boat, fishing gear and kayaks, we had a great time. We brought all our own food and had no problems cooking, the only point to note was there was no oven, however there is a stove, microwave and webber that we were able to cook with.

Loved everything about our stay, will definitely go back.

Beautiful property.. Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

The lower deck had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The fire place really warmed up the studio on the cold night. Very clean beautifully decorated we felt taken away to Bali with the decor. Highly recommend Mannyal dorm Secret Dining who comes to the house and cooks your was delicious and presentation that you would find in a fancy restaurant. The runabout provided for you to go up and down the river added to the experience. A beautiful place to stay for some well deserved rest and relation in a beautiful setting!

Wonderful relaxing and romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful stay at The Deck on Berowra Waters. Idealic tranquil location just an hour from Sydney and truly luxurious accommodation on the water. We loved every minute of the indulgence and capped off with access to our own little boat to cruise up the river in - just a great way to spend a romantic weekend away. Thanks Rob and Bernice for your hospitality and Sue for all your assistance.
