ABOUT MACKYS

...............................

The interior tones at MACKY'S are soothing to both the eye & the soul. The open plan living space spans the full length of the northern water frontage; the interior simply invites you just to sit back & take in the perfectly framed views of the river.

There is some internet reception using your own phone/modem; a bluetoooth UE Boom speaker, Cd & DVD player...but NO TV channels, so ideal for getting away from the busy 'real world'

The master BEDROOM, w/ queen bed opens directly out to the water views....as does the second queen bedroom.

The covered sandstone terrace with BBQ , WOOD FIRED pot belly & OUTDOOR DINING is the spot to be on a balmy afternoon.

The KITCHEN has been totally rebuilt with new appliances:- electric oven, gas cooktop, dishwaher., slimline fridge/ freezer suited to a weekend stay; bring eskie if staying longer ; PANTRY is stocked with australian olive oil, vinegar, plunger coffee, twinings tea, raw suger, sea salt, cracked pepper, paper towel, serviettes.

There is direct accees to the modern BATHROOM from both the living area & from the master bedroom. This is a lovely bathroom design with spacious shower recess & heated flooring

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quaint little property They have done this up beautifully, all the modern touches, little things like gladwrap, salt and pepper (one less thing to pack!) I would recommend they purchase BBQ tongs (as the tiny tongs they provide made BBQ ING a little difficult). A little TLC re cobwebs and the hob light not working, plus the dishwasher was temperamental switching off mid cycle. All in all though - a fabulous weekender!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Mackys We had a delightful stay at Mackys on a rainy March weekend. It started perfectly with us arriving to an open house, mood lighting, atmospheric tea light candles dotted around and a varied playlist humming away. The house was a great place to spend a weekend catching up with family - doing a few jigsaws in the cosy lounge room; cooking in the lovely kitchen; reading and watching the world go by in the chairs on the deck and exploring the river. We would definitely recommend Mackys as a lovely place to stay to unwind - we could have easily stayed longer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic We stayed for 3 nights at Mackys with 2 young children and had a wonderful time. The kids really enjoyed low tide when the mud crabs came out - they were kept entertained for hours! The house if fully equipped with everything you need. Its only an hour or so from Sydney but it feels like hours and hours away.
