“A wonderful mid week break”
Reviewed December 13, 2018 for a stay in December 2018

We needed a mid week break after a tough school year with our teenage kids and Calabash Fit the bill. While the kids kayaked and explored we read, cooked and lounged. Would love to come back for longer!

“Amazing family weekend away”
Reviewed October 14, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Amazing weekend away in such a relaxing and beautiful environment. House is in a perfect position. The kids enjoyed the toys, boats, kayaks, fishing and walk up the hill to the ruins. Could spend a lot more time there soaking up the views and ambience. Home is really well appointed and decorated. Attention to detail is excellent and very friendly host.

“sensational lodge”
Reviewed April 8, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

we were 3 sets of couples staying at the lodge for the weekend and we had the most amazing and relaxing time! the lodge is gorgeous and had heaps of room for a group of 6 to relax/sleep comfortably without feeling like we were on top of each other. even just the living room couch was massive and we could all easily lounge there at the same time without having to get extra chairs around the tv.

having our own kayaks and SUPs were brilliant and we all made sure to get out on the water for both days. tanning on the balcony with the view of the river, taking arvo naps on the hammock while listening to the gentle lapping of the water, coming together with good food, wine and company at the dinning table overlooking that gorgeous view - all made up a fantastic weekend away.

would definitely recommend and would definitely return again!

“Relaxing weekend away”
Reviewed January 30, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This was an amazing place to stay. All fours rooms were stunning, all with a beautiful view. We didn't want for anything during our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and the house had plenty of decks and comfortable seats and beds. We swam, used the kayaks, used the boats and stand up paddleboards and fished. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend away with friends. I'd recommend this place to stay and we would love to return.

“Attention to detail perfect”
Reviewed January 2, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Calabash Lodge is in the most idylic position in Berowra waters. Every room has an uninterrupted magical scene of the Hawksbury River. Manny was on call and made every problem easily resolved. We were 8 adults and 2 children. A little tight for sleeping , but manageable . The bathrooms were beautifully appointed and the linen first class. The kitchen had every requirement and made our arrival easier than expected. The toys were unending. Canoes boards fishing gear - even bait .
My grandson caught mud crabs and my daughter- in-law cooked them deliciously.
Everyone needs a Manny - thank-you again for a special week.

“Spacious, well appointed and perfect location.”
Reviewed October 29, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have just had the most wonderful weekend at Clabash Bay Lodge. The house was so well equipped for activities on the water and out. The kitchen was generous and again well appointed. Our favourite spot was on the deck, soaking in that wonderful water view. Two days was not long enough.
