A lovely picturesque location that is close to the city yet felt so remote to detox and destress from city life. The veiw is amazing with the living area spacious enough for everyone to be in the same place without feeling crowded. The kitchen was perfect size for all the chefs in the family to enjoy cooking a meal together. This place truly is the perfect location for all ages!!

Michael’s place is everything it promises to be, and so much more. We all wished we could have stayed another day to soak up the splendid view of the marina and relax for a bit longer. The house is perfect for large groups with the long table, sofa and all you need in the kitchen to cater for big groups). Thanks Michael for being a great host! The late checkout on Sunday is definitely a plus – as we all arrive Friday evening after work, we get to enjoy our week end a bit longer.

A great place for a weekend away. We went out on a BBQ boat for the day (which we received a discount on), and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon and evening enjoying the penthouse and view. The kitchen we great as we could cook our meals, but the cafe, restaurant and bottle shop downstairs were very handy. Definitely recommended.

Michael provided clear and precise instructions prior to checking in. His penthouse overlooks the Hawkesbury River, and is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Penthouse is well maintained, and has all the necessities for a relaxing time with family and friends. Another big plus is the awesome fish and chips just below the Penthouse.

Michael was a fantastic host – nothing was too much trouble. He was always available to answer my queries and make recommendations. The Penthouse couldn’t be in a better location. Berowra Waters Marina is absolutely stunning. We made great use of the wrap around deck area and BBQ facilities. The large kitchen complete with wine fridge was brilliant for our big group. The apartment is well maintained and complete with all home comforts. Michael welcomed us with a bottle of wine and chocolates and also provided fresh towels and toiletries in each bedroom. Michael gave us a discount on rental boats which we took out on the river which was really enjoyable. There is a little cafe underneath the apartment which serves fish and chips etc and another Italian cafe (red canopy) a short walk away which did a fantastic breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of Berowra Waters in a luxury apartment. The apartment itself would be great for families, couples or large groups. I am already looking into booking my next stay…. Thank you Michael – See you soon! Elaine

Michael was an excellent host and communicator. Extremely flexible and accommodating. The wine and chocolates on arrival were a lovely touch. Beds were comfy and the place was well appointed and clean. Great for groups and the fish and chips downstairs was excellent. Easy parking. Two flights of stairs so be aware for mobility impaired guests. Amazing views. Quiet and beautiful.

I stayed at the Penthouse with 5 colleagues for a work retreat. Michael was a great host – flexible, communicative and organised. We used the suggested caterer “Secret Dining” and had great, flavoursome and tasty food served right to our table. I would not hesitate to recommend the Penthouse for a work retreat and hope to be back in the future.

We had an excellent time here! This place was even nicer than we had expected just from looking at the photos and the water view was so tranquil and beautiful. Very spacious house, we had 10 people and felt that there was more than enough room for everyone. Michael gave some good instructions and it was super easy to find the place, he also greeted us a bottle of wine upon arrival (much appreciated after the drive). The penthouse had everything you could’ve needed for your stay (speakers and even boardgames) and the rooms/beds were very clean and tidy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend others to visit.

The host was very accomodating and was on call if we needed help when we first got there. The penthouse was spacious and cosy. Provided compliments on arrival. The space overlooking the water. Its located at the bottom of the mountain so when the fog rolls in, in the morning it is beautiful.

Vicki  Surry Hills, New South Wales  Apr  2016

Loved our stay!

We looked at several properties on the Hawkesbury River before deciding on Berowra Waters Penthouse for ANZAC weekend, and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision! Sitting above the Berowra marina itself with spectacular views from each room, the penthouse is beautifully designed and was more than big enough for the six of us (1 couple and 4 singles) to all get our own room – unheard of when we usually rent a weekend property! We loved the wraparound balcony, the huge lounge area and the sheer convenience of staying at the Marina itself meant we didn’t have to faff about in the dark when we arrived on Friday evening. It was also great to be able to pop down and grab much-needed coffees in the morning too! Michael was very helpful in the run-up to our stay and generously gave us a free tinny and use of kayaks over the 3 days, which meant we could properly experience the full beauty of Berowra Waters and the Hawkesbury River area. Would totally recommend staying here if you’re thinking of a spell on the Hawkesbury – we loved every minute! Thanks, Michael & team!

Excellent location

An amazing place for a girls getaway. Property housed ten of us comfortably. Scenery unbelievable.We took advantage of having an in house chef which suggested on property’s website and that was amazing.

Beautiful spot

We stayed at the penthouse over our wedding weekend, it was a beautiful spot to base ourselves with comfy beds and an excellent kitchen. Such a fabulous view of the waters we couldn’t have asked for a better place to prepare for the big day.

Kevin  Sydney  Jan 2016

Very pleasant.

We all enjoyed. The families (3 of them, with children) had a really good time. We enjoyed the roominess and the facilities available. The only thing was the wifi was a quite slow sometimes

Exceptional property

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the penthouse. The place is so spacious and has exquisite luxuries – enormous spa, lounge, project and kitchen. It’s a pleasure to wake up with the beautiful and calm view of berowra waters. I wouldn’t hesitate staying here again!

Janine Berowra, New South Wales Oct 2015

Excellent property

An enjoyable stay and a very impressive apartment. The location was breathtaking. The weather was very warm and we were all very keen for a swim but to accomplish this we had to hire a very small boat and drive an hour to a tiny beached area. Overall though it was a great weekend.

Great house

We loved our stay and were very happy with the size of the house. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax. The loungeroom was massive with gorgeous views of the surrounding bushland and river and most bedrooms had an ensuite which made our stay even more comfortable. The kitchen was efficient and easy to use and the balcony around the entire house was lovely.

VC  Sydney NSW   August 2015

Amazing stay

A group of us wanted a getaway that wasn’t too far out of the city, and the penthouse was perfect. The living room is massive with a giant couch, big TV and a projector with a sound system. The place was kept very clean and did not feel outdated at all. The views from the balcony of the water was just the relaxing escape we were hoping for. We definitely plan on making this place an annual visit.

Sarah  Berowra Waters, New South Wales, Australia  26 May 2015

So Beautiful!!

Incredible location, beyond what we all had imagined, very easy to get to and find, conveniently located above restaurant and bottle shop but also felt so secluded and private. Settled in a book right on the water, on a busy marina, but couldn’t hear a thing from inside the house. Michael and everyone at the marina went out of their way to make us feel welcome and immediately on holiday. Absolute luxury, recommend ANYONE to stay here, thank you so much!!

Spacious and well appointed!

We had 10 people stay at the Berowra Waters Penthouse, and all thoroughly enjoyed the property and facilities. It is highly convenient being located on the marina, avoiding the usual water transport, and parking was available right outside the door to the property. Inside, all the rooms were spacious and well appointed, with big beds, several bathrooms, a big living and dining area and kitchen facilities to accommodate all the guests. We arrived to find chocolates and wine in each room, which was a wonderful treat for us. We loved staying there, and would highly recommend the property to others, particularly for large groups.

Wedding night bliss!

We chose the Berowra waters penthouse for our wedding night & what a great choice it was. We arrived at the penthouse to a complimentary bottle of wine & high quality chocolates in each room. The view was breathtaking & the facilities made us feel at home. Would definitely stay there again for a nice weekend away with friends- definitely worth the money 🙂

Beautiful house!

The house is beautiful and big! Very thorough kitchen and rooms are at good sizes. Although the only negative is that there seems to be a lot of mosquito around the house and we/and our guests have been bitten up quite badly overnight. Perhaps, considered having mosquito spray or mosquito traps in the house would be good. Also, no reception for mobile phones is another weakness.

Overall a very good stay with beautiful views!

Fiona,   Thank you for your feedback. It is much appreciated.

Mosquito’s are a little out of our control, mostly people control them by having the windows shut and the air conditioning on, however we will from now on follow your suggestion and be providing insect spray.

There is excellent Telstra mobile phone coverage here but not Optus or Vodaphone, Mobile coverage is out of our control but we do provide a no charge non barred land line for our guests use and free wi fi.

Once again thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you here again.

Beautiful place to relax in!

We had the loveliest weekend at the Penthouse – we were able to relax and unwind, both adults and kids alike, for those precious 3 days for my 40th bday which was awesome.

The property manager was so helpful, he went out of his way to accommodate for our needs and was quick to respond.

The property had plenty of space, is very well stocked with necessary appliances and located beautifully right by the water.

The Penthouse is truly a beautiful place and we would love to come back one day soon for another session of RnR.

Perfect weekend away!

A perfect venue for our family reunion/ 60th birthday celebration. Wasn’t able to order seafood platters for Friday night, due to a wedding at the restaurant and our late request, but the Fish Cafe was sooooo helpful… Let us take their seafood platters upstairs, nothing too much trouble.

We booked Secret Dining for Saturday dinner… Manuel was terrific all the way through the process and the food was wonderful. Was a bit worried we would be interrupted by noise in the night, because it is so close to the ferry, but need not have worried… Beds were so comfortable we all slept soundly. Only one thing to remember – take everything with you (even salt and pepper) as the shop downstairs is very limited and very expensive. I would highly recommend this venue for a large family, or group of friends. We have a great family memory!

Our stay at the Berowra Waters Penthouse was amazing ! We actually had our Wedding in the Waterview Restaurant downstairs then spent the weekend relaxing and catching up with friends who were also staying in the area all weekend.

We could not have asked for a better location and place to stay during such a special occasion. We will definitely be back to stay multiple times over the next 30 – 40 years for sure to celebrate our anniversaries!
