Rare, secluded deep waterfront cottage surrounded by the picturesque Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.

Step back in time to when life was simpler, when people had stimulating conversations instead of texting emojee’s, attended elaborate dinner party’s instead of going to a restaurant then played cards or board games like "Twister" till the wee hours of the morning.

Romantic. Serene. Private. Tranquil. Right on the water. The perfect getaway.

The house has a beautiful lawn by the water, shaded by a Jacaranda Tree with one of the last remaining private tidal sea pools on the Hawkesbury.

Relax on the verandah with the water so close, you would think you are on a boat.

Facing NorthWest, gaze across the deepest fjord in the Southern Hemisphere at the spectacular beauty that is the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park - thousands of hectares of untouched, virgin bushland.

Lie on the pontoon on a summers night and count the shooting stars amongst the endless starry background, unhindered by civilisations lights.

This classic late 60’s Cottage will not disappoint you, with its comfortable, relaxed layout and modern conveniences.

Explore the clear waters of Cowan Creek in one of our Kayaks or SUP’s (stand up paddle board). Kayak 5-10mins to The Kiosk for a delectable breakfast or lunch.

Watch boats go by knowing that you'll never get seasick at Homelea...

Read a book from our library or play one of the many board games at hand.

Watch Foxtel IQ or the Blue Ray DVD with a small library of DVD's (or bring some with you).

Fish off the floating pontoon or one of our Kayaks and catch something fresh for dinner.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Homelea is everything the website promises and more. The house is charming. it is not luxurious, but that's part of the charm. Every detail has been planned for in a meticulous manner. The kitchen is particularly well set up and the kitchen staples are terrific!

Blissful quiet allows for excellent sleep, and the sound of the rain on the veranda roof is delightful.

The owners talk down the internet connection, but I had some business emails to handle, and it was perfectly satisfactory.

I want to come back again, and next time for longer.

Beautiful Cottage in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience, we travelled down the inclinator on the first day and didn't come back up again until the end of our stay. It was such a luxury being able to have a swim in the tidal pool, travel out each day on the kayak and just sit and soak in the beautiful view of the landscape. Highly recommend this property and would definetly return for another stay.

What a location!

  • 4 of 5

A gorgeous spot, with outstanding views. The house is comfy and has everything you need for your stay. We had a really relaxing break over a wet weekend, but managed to get out and about on the kayak during a break in the weather. Must come back one day to enjoy a summer-time swim in the amazing tidal pool.

Prozac by the Water

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning.The most relaxing property we have ever stayed in.We were so suprised with the amount of activities we could choose from. The beautiful tidal pool for morning swim,a kayak on the stunning water and fishing from the backyard.The water was so clean you could actually see the fish taking the bait.I have spent hundreds of dollars at a weekend health retreats yet they have not come close to the relaxation that Homelea provided..

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise. Counting the days until i can return

What a fantastic location. Cannot express how beautiful Homelea is. Swimming in the pool or off the jetty, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding or just relaxing on the verandah, doing nothing but enjoying the peace and quiet while taking in the stunning views. The cottage has everything you could ever need to enjoy a break away, comfortable furnishings, a wonderful kitchen stocked with every convenience including the all important Nespresso. Thank you for letting us enjoy this wonderful property.
