River Cottages

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and enjoy a peaceful riverside experience in one of our four adjoining private homes at Milsons Passage. This truly unique location is the ideal place for fishing, kayaking, swimming and bush walking along the tracks in the Muogamarra Nature Reserve. With a waterfront balcony, your own private jetty, sandy beach-front, spa and pool, what more could you want to relax in peace and tranquility?

Milsons Passage Homes

Our four adjoining waterfront homes on the Hawkesbury River are only accessible by boat. Each home offers a stunning front veranda with sunny uninterrupted views of the river, a private sandy beach, jetty and pontoon. After a 50 minute drive from the Sydney CBD and a 10 minute boat trip you will have arrived to peace and tranquillity. There are a range of transport options, including tie up your own boat on your wharf, arrive by water taxi, or hire your own boat for your stay. Luxury afloat has two eco boats available for hire.

Since reopening after Sydney 2021 corona virus lockdowns, we are not allowing pets in the cottages hire. Pets are not allowed on houseboats or cottages hire, particularly due to national park rules.

Guest facilities

Our cottages offer a large choice of amenities including spas, barbeques, pool, kayaks, wifi, payTV, air conditioning and private river beaches and jetties.

Interaction with guests

We are always nearby and available to answer questions via phone. We will meet and greet you, show you around, then leave you to relax.

If a late night arrival is needed a key can be arranged with an email briefing of the property.

Other things to note

Guests will arrive at the Luxury Afloat Houseboat office and marina at Kangaroo Point Cruise Terminal, Brooklyn. For your boat transport you can choose a water taxi, hire an eco-day boat from us or bring your own boat. Ice, bait, fishing hire, towel hire, drinking water, etc are available for purchase at our Luxury Afloat office. You can also make a Coles online order and have it delivered to the Luxury Afloat office before you arrive. You can simply load your groceries onto the boat that will transfer you to our Milsons Passage Home.
