Encircled by pristine eucalypt bush on the Hawkesbury River, Calabash Bay Lodge resides at the apex of 3 national parks at a secret waterfront location 1 hour north of Sydney. It's so secluded you'll need our boat to get there.

Floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of gnarled ghost gums and angophoras growing straight out of ancient sheer sandstone cliffs bordering the river. Jump on our kayaks or SUPs to explore yourself, or bushwalk from the back door.

Our private chef elevates your stay's luxe factor while you relax with a cocktail against a peach-tinged sunset.

Perfection.

I own and manage the award-winning boutique luxury retreat in Sydney, Australia, called Calabash Bay Lodge. My husband Derek whom I travel with (most of the time - when he's not travelling elsewhere himself for work) is a chief creative officer of a leading international design agency in the inflight, media and entertainment space. Trained as a designer and fine artist, Derek hails originally from New Zealand, hence we have set up our Lodge with reference to the style and tradition of NZ's finest lodges. Our favourite travel destinations tend to be on water or islands wherever we can find them, Croatia, Iceland, Italy's Aeolian Islands as well as Sardinia, and Sicily are particular faves, and our own native Australia and New Zealand of course. We also love Bologna, Berlin, Copenhagen, Madrid, Hong Kong, and New York. Being in the travel industry professionally, and used to hosting and welcoming guests myself, I can assure you that I will treat your home with the utmost of respect and care for it as if it were my own.
