Lot 13 Calabash Point
Berowra Waters NSW 2082 Australia

Calabash Bay Lodge is surrounded by pristine eucalypt bushland and the ancient sandstone cliffs fronting onto the Hawkesbury River at Berowra Waters. With three national parks on each side of our riverfront location, the Ku’ring-gai Chase, Marramarra, and Berowra Valley, Calabash Bay Lodge offers an unparalleled eco-luxury escape perfect for weekend getaways from Sydney, multigenerational or multiple family holidays, as well as romantic luxury couples retreats in celebration of honeymoons or babymoons, or just to spoil a lover. Calabash Bay Lodge is also a unique and inspiring venue for a corporate reward, strategy workshop, or health and wellness retreat.

All of Calabash Bay Lodge's rooms feature north-facing floor to ceiling views to a 4km sweep of riverfront that ends at our private pontoon and waterfront garden. You’ll have the deepest and most refreshing sleep in our four beautifully-appointed bedrooms with plush organic 1000 count cotton bedlinen – including 2 king rooms with AH Beard premium luxury beds that can be split into 2 twin beds for groups of family, friends or colleagues, and 2 with queen sized Sealy Posturepedic beds. All have outdoor balconies and water views, and there are 3 bathrooms, 2 being private ensuites with luxury rain showers, with luxury toiletries supplied from REN and Li’Tya.

Our interior-designed indoor and outdoor entertaining and lifestyle zones feature contemporary International and Australian design from B&B Italia, Viccarbe, Kartell, Planet & Coco Republic, and essential modern amenities, including high speed wireless broadband, Samsung SmartTV with Apps, Foxtel Platinum HD Cable TV service, Sonos wireless stereo system, Wii games console, DVD player, plus a AppleTV & Media Centre and Lodge iPad.

The real entertainment is outdoors on the Hawkesbury River however, with use of a runabout boat for fishing and adventuring, 1 double and 3 single kayaks, as well as fishing rods and a crab pot to try your luck at catching dinner included. You can swim year round directly off our private pontoon, or take the boat for a spin to a nearby secluded beach at low tide. You can bushwalk directly from the property’s rear or take the boat to the nearby trail heads of the Great North Walk.

For those craving more relaxation, savour the atmosphere waterside in our hanging pod chair, on the Brazilian hammock under the shade of our jacaranda tree, or our French striped deck chairs. Or spend the afternoon lazing on the B&B Italia day bed on the upstairs terrace, soaking up the magical atmosphere of life on the waterfront from above and figuring out which of the passing boats you'll buy when you win the lottery or when that start-up begins to pay its way.

We can also arrange a private chef to cook for you in house, provide gourmet self-serve meals for you, or pre-stock the Lodge with supplies to request (even birthday cakes!). If you feel like spoiling yourself further, we can arrange therapists to provide massage and spa treatments in house for you. Private yoga and SUP yoga classes are also available in house.

Being sustainable in our activities and protecting the environment is something we take seriously. All energy used at Calabash Bay Lodge is fully carbon offset, we have an eco-friendly waste system and we clean only with chemical and phosphorus free natural products, so as to have the lowest possible footprint on our pristine river environment.

Four legged friends are welcome to join you on your holiday on an outdoors only basis by prior approval by the owner.

That's why we offer our unique Very Late Checkout Special, so you can make every minute of your valuable weekend away count towards the ultimate in relaxation & indulgence. Continue your relaxation well into your Sunday, instead of having to check out in the morning and miss out on a whole extra day to unwind and soak in the magical atmosphere.

We strongly advise guests take out travel insurance with water activities coverage to protect themselves against unexpected changes to their travel plans, for the risk of damage to property, or injury to themselves and/or third parties. Any variations to the terms and conditions must be requested in writing and agreed to by management before the commencement of the rental period at Calabash Bay Lodge. The booking coordinator must educate all guests staying at Calabash Bay Lodge as to these terms and conditions of rental, uphold and enforce these terms and conditions at all times during the rental period and will be liable for the actions of any guests in their group that cause breakage, damages or excess cleaning or rubbish removal requirements.

SECURITY BOND
A security bond is payable to cover any additional costs incurred, including but not limited to, any breakage, damages or excess cleaning or rubbish removal requirements. On departure, the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival. We include final cleaning in all rates, however, we expect the property to be tidied and left in a presentable condition as you would in your own home. As Berowra Waters has no waste services being on a river in national park, we appreciate your assistance in taking as much waste and recycling as possible from the Lodge on your checkout transfer and disposing of this at the facilities adjacent the carpark.

We require the guest to provide credit card details for the security bond. We accept VISA, Mastercard, Bankcard, American Express, JCB and Discover cards. Please note well that Debit VISA and Debit MasterCards or similar are not accepted for the security bond. The security bond required is $1000. The security bond will be returned in full subject to the terms and conditions of rental being met satisfactorily. In the event that we have to draw upon the security bond for any reason, the full value of the bond will be charged to the credit card. If the repair cost is less, the difference will be refunded as soon as practicable.

CHILD POLICY
Calabash Bay Lodge accepts children without restriction and is family friendly. Two additional infants (up to 12 months of age) can be accommodated on the property in addition to the normal maximum of 8 guests subject to request in writing and approval by management. One cot and highchair are available at the property for your use upon request.

NUMBER OF GUESTS
Under no circumstances are more than 8 guests allowed on the premises at any one time, with the exception of approved day visitors (see below). Under no circumstances are any additional guests beyond the number confirmed at time of booking permitted on the property, unless subsequently agreed in writing prior to commencement. This will be strictly enforced. Contravening this condition may result in immediate termination of the rental and/or loss of bond.

VISITOR POLICY
Subject to request in writing and approval by management, in certain circumstances we may agree for day visitors to visit guests staying at the property. No more than 10 persons may be on the property at any one time. The same terms and conditions apply to day visitors as to guests staying overnight at the property. Where we agree prior to the commencement of your stay that visitors may visit guests at the property during the rental period, guests must acknowledge that additional fees may be deducted from the security bond to cover any extra incidental costs including but not limited to extra cleaning, garbage removal and additional wear and tear.

GROUP BOOKING POLICIES – NOISE & PARTIES. PLEASE NOTE WELL
Parties and Functions are strictly prohibited at all times. Use contrary to this may result in immediate termination of the rental, loss of security bond, and the guest will forfeit any claim to refund of monies for rental paid prior to commencement. Excessive noise, particularly loud music and voices in the outdoor areas, that is in violation of NSW noise pollution law is strictly prohibited and may result in termination of rental and loss of bond.

THEFT OR LOSS
We do not take responsibility for any theft or loss that may occur during your stay. We strongly advise guests take out travel insurance to protect themselves against theft or loss of personal items.

BOAT USE POLICY
We provide use of a runabout boat as part of our rates, which seats up to 4 persons maximum (this is the largest possible boat size we can offer to unlicensed drivers). As part of our check-in procedure, you'll receive a briefing on safe operation. At the end of the briefing you will be given a boat use agreement, where you will acknowledge receipt of the safety briefing and that use of the boat is at your own risk. Lifejackets, including for children, mandatory safety equipment, and a full tank of fuel is provided.

NB The boat can only be used during daylight hours, so that needs to be taken into consideration if you have any late arriving guests you may like to collect yourself on the day of arrival. In that scenario, an additional boat transfer will need to be booked in advance of your stay.

We strongly advise guests take out travel insurance with water activities coverage to protect themselves against the risk of damage to property, or injury to themselves and/or third parties.

SMOKING POLICY
Calabash Bay Lodge is a non-smoking property. We appreciate your understanding.

We may use third-party service providers to process your personal information on our behalf for the purposes of this booking. For example, we may share some information about you with these third parties so that they can contact you directly by email (for example: to obtain post stay reviews about your travel experience).
