Boat House overlooks Patonga Creek and provides a delightful location for you and your family or friends to enjoy all that the area has to offer.
The house sleeps 10, although we have a limit of 6 adults, and is ideally suited to a group of friends or two families. All bedrooms are in the main house - there is no guest access to the separate garage and loft building, but this will not be occupied during your stay.
For weekend stays, we give a check-out time of 3pm on the Sunday to allow you to make the most of your weekend. For longer stays, check-out is at 10am.
There are 5 bedrooms in total - there are 2 queen bedrooms and a twin upstairs, while downstairs there is one twin bedroom and one with a set of single bunks. We provide pillows, doonas and additional blankets, but guests need to bring their own linen and towels. Upstairs there is a bathroom with a bath, shower and toilet, and there is also a downstairs toilet.
The well-equipped kitchen (renovated 2016) looks out over the deck towards the creek. It leads into a dining room with ample room at the table for all guests.
The large living room has windows overlooking the creek and grassy reserve and there is also a small separate sitting/entrance room leading off the dining room.
There is a wood fire stove for heating in the main living room and one reverse cycle air conditioning unit for the entry room/dining area.
A large deck overlooks the creek-side reserve, and a small grassed yard with BBQ. The other side of the house there is a small yard which can be a lovely sheltered spot to sit in the cooler months. Off the yard is a small building housing a laundry and toilet.
The house is equipped with a variety of books and DVDs, jigsaws and games.
Unfortunately we do not accept pets at this property and parties and functions are not permitted.
Something for everyone...
Patonga is something of a hidden treasure and Boat House is well situated to allow you to enjoy all there is to offer.
The deck is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy watching activity on the reserve and the creek. You will also see (and hear) a wide variety of bird life.
The creek is a great spot for kayaking, paddle-boarding, and fishing. A short stroll takes you to Patonga beach and its gorgeous outlook over Broken Bay and the mouth of the Hawkesbury River.
Go for a walk along the creek-side track, or join the Great North Walk and climb up to see fabulous views across to Lion Island, Palm Beach and beyond.
Quiet streets for cycling, tennis courts, kids playground - all are available within the village of Patonga.
And on a practical note
Patonga is about an hour and 10 minutes from Sydney's northern suburbs via the M1 motorway from Wahroonga to Gosford.
The Boathouse Hotel Patonga (no relation) sits across from the main beach and is a great place to enjoy a drink or a meal outside overlooking the bay. There is also a kiosk with takeaway food and coffee.
For food shopping, there are supermarkets only 10 minutes' drive away in Umina.
There is a limited ferry service between Palm Beach and Patonga and a likewise limited bus service from Woy Woy. The nearest train is also at Woy Woy which is 20 minutes' drive from Patonga.
