LA RIVERAINE  Hawkesbury River





The original 50’s design of this charming riverside cottage was carefully preserved when totally refurbished in 2018.    All the charm and elegance of this era has been brought back to life, and a heated plunge/spa added to the tropical terrace garden.  French doors opening on to terraces make the most of the beautiful river views.

Fresh, luminous, airy and inviting, La Riveraine is an intimate retreat just for two in a stunning very peaceful location.

A romantic bedroom, a truly indulgent bathroom with deep stone bath, and a stylish chefs kitchen add understated luxury laced with a little nostalgia to this tranquil retreat. Wide steel frame windows are dressed with plantation shutters throughout. The living area opens onto a generous, covered verandah perfumed with Gardenia and Jasmine, and shaded in summer by a flowering Jacaranda.  The kitchen gives on to a cool stone covered court yard .

With beautiful views over the river and boat shed below, La Riveraine gives being ‘away from it all’ a whole new meaning.

 The sunken plunge pool (heated in cooler months) is set in a tropical terrace garden.   A stone Buddha statue, perfumed frangipanis, and potted citrus trees surround the pool. This is a place to take refuge from the summer heat. or swim at midnight watching the moonlight settle on the river.

 For Al Fresco dining there is a choice of three terraces to suit all weather.

During the winter weeks a log burning combustion fire adds to the ambience.

 The original boat shed sits right over the river just below the house.  Here, an afternoon siesta in the hammock or a nap on the day bed will put you on ‘river time’ in a moment. ....Or, from a big comfortable chair simply watch the world pass by, read, drop a line or enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over the Hawkesbury.

We couldn't recommend this place more. It was the perfect weekend retreat for our first anniversary! The Boat shed by the water is super cozy and great to chill out in the hammock with the fridge close by to keep the wine chilled ;) The house is a great balance of stylish and homely with everything you could need. The plunge pool was an added bonus for the hot days! Annie was so great to deal with the whole time and made us feel very welcome!

Matt Liddell recommends La Riveraine Hawkesbury. 6 February · First of all everything was prepared immaculately before my partner and I arrived with the jetty being easy to find thanks to the easy to follow directions. Once we pulled up the stay was fantastic, no rush to check out at all, loved the minimalist approach and lack of clutter yet ability for the place to have everything you could need including the pool, Netflix, fishing gear etc. Annie is great to deal with and this was a great stay. 5/5. Matt

Madeleine Turkington recommends La Riveraine Hawkesbury. 27 December 2018 · We spent a few very relaxing days at La Riveraine. It was comfortable, well-equipped and peaceful. The owner was attentive to our needs. Bar Point has the appeal of being away from it all and yet we were actually pretty close to home. Great place. Madeleine Turkington

Kat Brady recommends La Riveraine Hawkesbury. 1 November 2018 · An absolutely amazing little get away. A peaceful boat trip to arrive and a gorgeous boat house awaits your arrival! The house is just beautiful and makes a fantastic getaway from Sydney. We were lucky enough to pop down the river for great coffee and wine- and then enjoyed fabulous snuggly times back at the house around the fire. A truly excellent experience. Thanks so so much.

Catherine Christine recommends La Riveraine Hawkesbury. 26 September 2018 · This is an amazing, sweet and very chic house in the middle of a peaceful paradise. My favourite times here were doing the bush walks, boating on the river, and enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sunset in the boat shed – on comfy modern seating. Once night falls you can cook anything you can imagine in the well-equipped kitchen, stoke up the fire and relax in front of the tv, or out on the deck. It's wonderful in both summer and winter! 10/10 for a luxury break from modern life.
