Clearview Cottage is located in the village of Sunshine on the 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, a separate electric health grill, 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 child-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.
Book Clearview Cottage for a pleasant and relaxing experience for your next weekend, short stay or extended stay; ideally as a cost effective base when visiting the Hunter Valley wineries.
We mail out an easily read highlighted map and essential cottage information per booking to assist you and happily reply to any and all questions to help you plan your holiday.
Adequate complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and milk is supplied for you on arrival. In addition we include cling wrap, alfoil, paper towel and tissues.
A refundable security bond and a moderate cleaning fee applies.
Sorry, we do not permit pets. No smoking permitted inside cottage.
If you are just browsing and considering a far off break, may we recommend you follow through with an enquiry. We respond promptly.
Our aim is to provide "affordable and agreeable" holiday accommodation. We offer generous arrival-departure times to make your short break seem longer.
All considered, Clearview Cottage is probably the most affordably priced and picture-perfect holiday house on Lake Macquarie with owners who strive to be different from other rentals.

Clearview Cottage is truly one of Lake Macquarie's best kept secrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterfront charm My mum, sister and I stayed at Clearview for 4 nights over Christmas including Christmas Day. Beautifully clean house and garden, peaceful and quiet neighbourhood, and spectacular unblocked views. A bowl of chocolates, milk, ice and bottles of water in the fridge, and Anzac biscuits in the cupboard to welcome us. Warm mornings, terrific cooling breezes from noon through the afternoon. You can listen to the water lapping, cheer on the sailboard riders, and feed the pelicans and seagulls who walk the jetty but do NOT like cooked prawns. The house had everything we needed, both relaxation and equipment wise. We would stay again and cousins who visited Boxing Day are keen to book their own stay. Best recommendation ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic family accommodation with a view Spectacular! Such a gorgeous little cottage, just right for the family. Lake is right at the front door and the views are absolutely stunning. Right in between Sydney and Newcastle, it is so easy to duck to any where. Owners are so helpful in any requests, and obviously hold great pride in their property. Thank you, looking forward to enjoying many family holidays in the future here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottage We have just had 3 nights at Clearview. We had an absolutely wonderful family time with our family from out west of Dubbo as they don't get to have water views very often so being right on the water and watching the passing boats. We had 2 houses was another plus for Sunshine as there are not very many houses for holiday in the area. We highly recommend "Clearview". The Cottage is extremely equipped and spotless which is always a plus in their favour. Will definitely try to get there again. Ian &. Ann Dent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage for relaxing. I don't want to tell you how lovely this cottage is because it will become too popular. The pictures say it all. From the living area there is a changing panorama of boats and yachts, birds and jumping fish. Water lapping on the shore to lulled us to sleep. Clearview Cottage has a comfortable feel and once settled we didn't want to go out again! The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a supermarket nearby. Owners sent excellent driving instructions. We look forward to staying again.
