Clearview Cottage is located in the village of Sunshine on the southern shores of Lake Macquarie (near Morisset, NSW), just 70 minutes easy drive on the M1 expressway (formerly the F3) north from Hornsby.
The way Clearview is represented here in pictures and words is 'exactly' as it is. Clearview is a testament that the very first holiday houses on the Lake acquired the best waterfront locations.
Clearview is positioned forward of other houses giving you a unrestricted 180-degree Northerly outlook and is just 5 metres to the water's edge.
Your holiday house is private, quiet, with a sturdy shared jetty with all-round rubber buffer, deep water, sandy shore and is complimented with a pleasant north-easterly breeze in summer and enjoys the warm sun on the main front covered north-facing deck all day in winter.
The cottage is elevated and takes advantage of the outstanding open water outlook with the living, dining and kitchen areas all overlooking the lake through tinted windows.
Clearview is simply furnished yet very comfortable with TWO bedrooms, both with a queen bed. Two single beds are located separately and ideally located for that anytime nap. There is a modern fully-fitted kitchen with all the homely inclusions, sensor lighting, a wired smoke alarm, ceiling fans in all bedrooms, a bath-shower combo with toilet and another separate toilet.
There are two generous size decks covering approx 30+ square metres, with regulation-height safety fence with a gate at stairs.
There are two digital TVs. Both are TV-DVD with separate remotes. One in living area and the other in main bedroom. There is an assortment of complimentary DVDs, a large library of books, some CDs and and a separate kiddies' play corner. A very comprehensive step-by-step list of operating instructions has been prepared to assist the less technical to confidently operate these appliances. A leather lounge suite with two recliners completes the picture.


The lake is your backyard and is perfect for any water activity with unrestricted open water and nearest landfall up to 1 kilometre away. Complimentary binoculars are provided.
A convenient and very modern new shopping centre is just a 5-minute drive away with Coles, take-aways, post office, a motel bottleshop with bistro, cafes, restaurants and a variety of other shops and services.
A wide and non-congested boat ramp is just 250 metres away and is part of a very large level grassed park, an opportunity for the bigger kids to kick a ball. The park has toilets, plenty of shade and an under cover electric barbeque. A newly constructed play area has just been completed.
Clearview is just 45 minutes from the renowned Hunter Valley Wine District. Relaxing on a deck with a glass or two after a day out, watching the yachts glide by or after dinner checking out the Milky Way is indeed memorable. A feature are the late Friday afternoon and weekend sailing regattas.


Consider what awaits you. . . a fully self-contained house. . . close to Sydney, Coastal and Regional centres. . . sensible arrival-departure times. . . right on the water with an amazing north-facing outlook. . . two generous size decks. . . very clean and comfortable and owners who reward your repeat business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Restful! We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Clearview. It was so lovely soaking up the view and the sunshine on the deck that we didn't move from there the first day but we made up for it the next day by kayaking for a couple of hours on the lake. The lovely beach house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. We plan to come back and enjoy the peace some more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clearview We really enjoyed our stay at Clearview and took every opportunity to delight in the view from the deck at different times of the day. The house was well looked after and maintained. Everything worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Location The property was in a great position on the lake with spectacular waterview and Waterfront access. The waterfront allowed us to walk along the waterfront and to also fish from both the shoreline and the private wharf. Although the cottage was old it showed a lot of character and had everything you need. We enjoyed our stay very much and was fortunate to be visited every morning by a family of ducks with 6 newly hatched ducklings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearview Cottage We stayed at the Cottage for a week in November. The Cottage is well placed to all amenities. Spotlessly clean and everything you need for a great holiday. The views are to die for and would highly recommend. The beds are super comfortable and we would definitely stay again.
