Arrive by boat at the Driftway, a special home full of heart and soul on the tip of Bar Point, Hawkesbury River.

The best fishing spot on the river is right out front, fish from the jetty or your boat. Located between Brooklyn and Berowra Waters you're in the ideal place for exploring the river and beaches. Head over to historic Bar Island and Marra Marra beach or up to Spencer Store and Cafe for one of Andrew's famous flathead wraps with a cold beer. Or simply relax on the large deck with water views and watch life on the river. Take a leisurely stroll along the huge parkland waterfront reserve while the kids run free - there are no cars at the Point. Plenty of room for cricket or ball games on soft grass. Up for a challenge? Take on the 1/2 day return bush walk to the swimming hole.

An unassuming, easy and practical home built for comfort, the Driftway features separate kitchen, dining and lounge areas that flow into each other with plenty of room to spread out. A no fuss light and open style with large front and back verandahs, you can laze in the hammock and watch the sunset over the river while the barbie cooks dinner.

Enjoy meals with a view at the 6 seater outdoor dining table or move inside to a full size dining table with solid chairs seating 6. The kitchen is fully equipped and the pantry is stocked with all the basics.

A genuine leather 3 seater extra plump lounge with two very roomy singles that fully recline are just heaven to relax in. Plenty of DVDs, games and books.

A distinctive weekender, the Driftway features original art works and photographs from exhibited local artists and photographer with bedrooms throughtfully styled with authentic fabrics and art from the pacific and south east Asia.

Tranquil and private, the Driftway is a boat access holiday home. Moor at our shared pontoon with deep water access even at low tide. No boat? No problem, you can hire a boat over night from Brooklyn Central or grab a water taxi anytime. Even better, take a combined Water Taxi and tinny hire deal so you get there fast and have a boat for the weekend to explore the river. You can top up supplies at Brooklyn or Spencer, both 6 nautical miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Property and Great Views The house was excellent and many things were provided for. The owner was also very accommodating and helpful, for example, we couldn't find a tinny for the weekend and the she asked around and referred us to an available tinny. We had heaps of fishing bait and nice rods. Also there was Canoe and Kayak (which isnt on the Stayz description) which we did not have time to use. Overall this is a great place with a even better host.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly enjoyable Thank you Jenny for a lovely welcome and for sharing your property with us. Home baked shortbread on arrival and a well stocked pantry for incidentals was just st perfect for our 7 night getaway on the Hawkesbury. The Bar Point Community was helpful and welcoming during our stay. Very clean house with crisp clean bed linen and soft towels for our use. Lovely deck with awesome new BBQ and even our two dogs were welcome during our stay too. Thanks again Jenny, you have thought of everything to ensure for an enjoyable stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blissful isolation We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Driftway. Easy to find and not a problem getting our luggage to the house. The house was comfortable with a huge deck overlooking the Hawkesbury and lovely openplan space inside. Jenny has taken care of all the little details that made it such an easy getaway - clean linen, bath and beach towels, and a kitchen well stocked with all the essentials. Lovely and peaceful, a great place to get away from the rat race! The kids loved having the use of the canoe and kayak for paddling around the glorious Hawkesbury, and the small beach a short boat ride away was perfect for a picnic and a swim. We loved it and will definitely come back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic getaway We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at driftway. Property has a great feel and layout plus water views and bush setting. The house had everything we needed and Jenny was extremely helpful and organised. Biggest issue was we didn’t stay long enough. That will have to be next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for Relaxation My partner and I wanted to escape for a relaxing weekend so we booked the Driftway. And what an excellent choice that turned out to be. Beauitiful filtered views from combined lounge, dining and kitchen. Large deck ideal for eveniing drinks as the sun set over the river to the west. The house was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked with basic cooking essentials. All in all great value for money - we will certainly return.
