Numerous tracks provide a variety of scenery and challenges. Aboriginal sites including ceremonial areas, caves, rock carving and middens are located within one kilometre from the house. Riley's Bay is renowned as a quiet spot where blackfish and flathead feed on the rising tide. Numerous other fishing spots are within easy reach. Walk 50m from the house along the waterfront reserve to cool off or patrolled beaches at Killcare, MacMasters and Umina are a short drive away. Kayaks and boats can be hired locally from Hardy's Bay and Booker Bay to explore the Brisbane Waters or take one of the local ferry services from Ettalong or Wagstaffe. Relax, read a book .... or write one.


90 minutes from Sydney CBD by car, train or ferry, Riley's Retreat is the perfect getaway. The locality offers many wonderful attractions including the extensive Brisbane Water area, coastline walks, secluded beaches, fishing, boating and boutique eateries offering the best local seafood and produce. Choice of beaches to suit the weather and your preferences.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazingly Meticulous! If the opportunity arises, we would love to go back. Super well equipped house with amazing views! There were life jackets, fishing rods, a water bowl for the dog, a dog leash, beach towels, towels and fully furnished rooms for us to use. We felt at home immediately. The only gripe we had was the lack of cues for the pool table. Other than that, amazing property!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great house in a good spot The photos don't do the house justice. The furnishings have been updated and the interior is lovely. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped and the welcoming champagne and Easter eggs were a really nice touch. Parking is tight but fine, and the house was a good place to relax over Easter. It's also about midway between two good dog beaches- Putty Beach at Killcare and Umina Beach, both about a 15 minute drive, so the dog was in heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect retreat for a quiet getaway This place is a little off the beaten track but if you want a quiet holiday in well-appointed accommodation, with lovely views of the bay and plenty of birdlife, then Riley's Retreat is perfect. As long as you have a car, it's not far from anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property 2 adults and two dogs had the best time here at Riley's Retreat. Lovely views, spotless and very relaxing. Ray was lovely, she left a nice bottle of wine and chocolates. Could not have asked for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back again! Wonderful The best complement to a great place is to return. There's quite a lot of choice along this coastline - but we love the peaceful quality of Riley's - its excellent location for some great beaches and trips; and our dog Poppy now sees it as a second home. This time we discovered the great surf at dog friendly, Putty Beach. I wonder what we will discover next time? Thanks so much, once more!
