The house has proved to be a great success for extended families, for families who wish to entertain their overseas guests or relatives or just for a great family holiday to spend some quality time with family or friends. There is something to do for all ages. Fishing, kayaking, boating, walks or just take in the wildlife, serenity. water views and clean air (no cars on Barpoint)

Жилье

I am not offering accommodation…I am offering a lifestyle/ holiday resort that only the very rich can afford but who don’t have the time to enjoy it.

For the advertised price you get.
A four bedroom house with linen supplied
2 Kayaks
Over 100 DVD’s
Internet
A 6 burner gas BBQ An enclosed back yard for your pets
Fully equipped kitchen
NEW: Buggie and cart to assist bringing your stuff from boat to house
too many things to mention
For an additional AUD 200 cash a 5.0 m pontoon boat with a 30 HP Motor for up to 3 days or AUD 300 for more than 3 days

Assuming you are lucky enough to know some millionaire, who will give you their holiday house FREE for a weekend, You will still be more out of pocket if you had to hire the kayaks, wash the linen farm out the dogs to kennels, pay for fire wood and leave a small gift to say “thank you” and live with the debt that you may feel you owe them…

Don’t bother.. You don’t need them anymore. You have it all at my house...and to annoy them, just invite them for a BBQ.. You can even offer to pick them up on my boat..!! And if you are generous enough let them stay overnight telling them they don’t have to wash the linen when they leave.

Unfortunately, it still cost quite a bit to stay here (and will stay so until my bank manager lets me off my mortgage repayments…don’t hold your breath), however if you take the cost of heating your house, going to restaurants, kennelling the dogs etc from the cost and divide the remainder (if any) between 2 full families, 4 couples or 8 friends you will realise just what good value you are getting.

No cars on the "island", no traffic no smog just pure air and great views.. The front yard is the river where you can fish ski kayak ... The immediate back yard is enclosed and comes with an outdoor shower, BBQ and a Huge fire pit. On the other side of the backyard is the Popran National park where you can hike, walk down the only road (or path) Kalinda road, get some free fire wood or just take in the nature. If the bush is a bit rough for you then walk on the grassed reserve in front of the house which is more of an extended garden than a reserve. Visit the local Post office and see how post offices were some centuries back (open 24/7) You can even fish from the post office when the postman has gone.
Visit the historic Bar island with the church ruins and grave stones (boat access only) or simply explore the waterways with your boat or mine.
Now for something different How often have you gone shopping or to restaurant by boat??? Now is your opportunity with numerous shops, restaurants and bars that can be accessed by boat.
There is something for all. All you have to do is book early to ensure no disappointments

The house may as well be on an island as it can only be accessed from the water. The nearest car park is at Mooney Mooney.

Mooney Mooney is under 1 hour from Sydney, on the F3, just after crossing the Hawkesbury River Bridge. Turn left and proceed approximately 200 metres to a roundabout, turn left and proceed to the car park or advertised “rest area”. The newly renovated car park has plenty of parking for your car
The car park is aptly labelled as " Rest Area" This is where you leave your car and all your stresses and worries behind. From here on its just holiday time... But you still have a 20 min boat trip to get to the house. Think of it as arriving overseas and catching a taxi to your hotel

IF YOU DONT HAVE A BOAT/JET SKI or KAYAK
No Sweat you can hire a water taxi, catch the postman ferry at AUD 20 per person (Mon to Friday) from Brooklyn at 10:00 daily or organize with me for a pick up and drop off service for AUD 200
Don’t forget the house has a boat available so only need one or two persons to get to the house to fetch the boat to pick up the rest

IF YOU HAVE A BOAT/JET SKI or KAYAK

At the Mooney Mooney car park there is newly built boat ramp and plenty of space to leave your car and trailer.
If your boat is not on a trailer, then no sweat as well.. The Hawkesbury flows into the sea with its mouth at Palm Beach.. A great trip from anywhere including Sydney harbour and the Parramatta river

The house has a 1/3 ownership of a private jetty and can easily accommodate up to a 7 meter boat. Any bigger you may have to anchor a bit out to sea and use my boat to taxi to the house or arrange with Peates Bite restaurant to moor there. (Peates bite restaurant is directly across the river from the house)

IF YOU DONT HAVE A CAR OR A BOAT
Still no excuse… Catch the train to the Hawkesbury river station and catch a water taxi or the postman ferry 20 meters from the station. I can also do a pick up and drop off service for AUD 200

At end of stay all rubbish/ food etc must be removed from house and disposed off at the car park or other. No council pickup on Bar Point :(
If using the boat, it is now law that persons under the age of 12 require life jackets. These are provided at the house.
The house is situated in the Popran National reserve lands and is subject to strict fire laws. Please check fire restrictions for your period of stay and never leave a fire unattended. Being a nature reserve there is the usual wild life. A python has been seen in the near area. Generally pythons are your friends and are not aggressive If you bring a small dog or puppy best is to keep it on a leash and not temp fate. If you are scared of snakes there are many people on Bar point who will remove the snake for you

Well first of all I want to thank David for everything, you have such a beautiful home, you were very welcoming and you made sure that my family and I were settled you were always available on call with the willingness to lend a helping hand. This is the first time I've booked a place through air bnb and if this is the kind of service that I'll be paying for then I'm very happy to continue to book through air bnb in the near future. My mother had a great weekend away to celebrate her 60th. And with your help and the amount of people that joined us, you made my weekend less stressful. You have been great from the get go, the view is so breathtaking, my children and nieces and nephews loved everything from kayaking, fishing and exploring the grounds. Everyone enjoyed themselves and not one person in my family had anything negative about the place. Although the weather didn't agree with my plans we did make the most of what could be done and David had literally everything available from board games for the kiddies, free wifi for the teenagers, playing cards for the mothers and a backyard layout for the men to sit back and have a yarn. My parents flew in from NZ, knew that I planned a weekend away, but didn't expect to see what was in store for them. They loved every moment of it and your home gave me that space to reunite with my siblings who made the long drive over from Melbourne to enjoy the peaceful place that your home offered. So thank you David once again for allowing me to take over your home for the weekend and being so welcoming and friendly. I will definitely be recommending your place to those that want to escape the crazy city life.

David was a wonderful host, providing a magical setting in secluded Hawkesbury River! David and the caretaker Robert, were just perfect hosts, prompt communication and at our disposal. I had a memorable 40th Birthday celebration, which was extremely well catered for, all amenities were modern and very useful, Big new bbq for entertaining back yard, whilst sitting on deckchairs, very good quality linen and towels. The view is just stunning and walking around the peninsula, the neighbours will surely say hello back! Even the thought of telescope to gaze in stary nights was a great touch! The best part also having the opportunity to rent the small boat to pick up guests and have fishing adventures was just a treat! Overall David is a perfect host and Robert care taking just super attentive in the best house possible! Highly recommend it and will be back in the near future!

We stayed at David’s beautiful property during the new year break, even though we were supposed to celebrate NYE there we decided to cut our trip short because of the excruciating heat and constant (thrice in 1 day) unpleasant visits by a 7-feet python. The property is gorgeous ,Robert (the care-taker) was extremely helpful and David was always just a phone call/text away. We used the boat just once because of the weather and tidal conditions, it’s a decent boat which can easily fit 5 people(including skipper) but if the waters are really choppy then it is best not to use it. David’s property has some fishing gear and even couple of kayaks but sadly because of extreme heat we didn’t get to use either. The house is more suited for winter stay since with no air-con and ceiling fans which are really ineffective it can get extremely uncomfortable if the temperature reaches above 30. We were lucky enough(pun intended)to stay there when the mercury touched the mid-late 30s and it literally felt like a sauna. Three visits in a day from the same 7feet python did put few of us on the edge, especially me since I have a 2 year old daughter. If wildlife is not your thing then Bars point in general might not be a good place for holiday although we couldn’t figure out why the same python kept coming back. The fridge at the property is more suitable for a smaller group( 3-4 people), get your own ice and esky if possible. David was kind enough to provide us with one day free stay in future to atone for our bad experience but losing out on NYE celebration and having to cut short a much awaited holiday is something which cannot really be compensated. Not to mention how embarrassed I felt in front of my friends for spoiling their holiday since I chose the property L . That feeling won’t go away for a long time but on the positive side no one would ask me to find an accommodation for our next break J Anyway whatever spoiled our holiday wasn’t in David’s control although a few pedestal fans or air-con and a bigger fridge would have helped. David and Robert were immensely kind and we might comeback ,in winter though.

Beautiful location. House was clean and felt very homely. Driving the boat and kayaking around the area was peaceful and a great experience. Perfect for a getaway from the city life.
