Luxury and location does not get any better than Shingles Delight. Perfectly kept lawn with scattered trees leading down to your own sandy beach, making this the ideal location to enjoy your lake front holiday. Step into another world that is only 55 minutes from Hornsby.

Shingles is truly a home away from home with all the comforts you could dream. The spacious 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home has an abundance of character, it was built to resemble a home in the Hamptons. With shingled feature walls, a slate roof and large open spaces the quality of the architecture itself is reason enough to visit for a weekend.

When you want to kick back in luxury with someone special or bunk in with a large group, this is the perfect location.

The large and fully equipped kitchen is ideal for all budding master chefs. A dining experience that looks directly onto the lake makes for a romantic candle lit dinner or extends to seat 12 adults for a gourmet feast. The sunset colours are mesmerizing as the sun disappears behind the lake.

Shingles is a place for togetherness and fun. The 3/4 size Abbot and Doyle snooker table will test your aim as you rest by the fire place in winter. In summer you open the doors with so much lawn for everyone to play cricket under the sun or under the spotlights in the evening. Take your kayaks for a paddle or throw in a line from your own private beach to catch a few flatty or whiting for dinner.

Shingles is an amazing location for the boat enthusiast. Ski, wakeboard and tube all day on of the most protected bay in the Lake. This is where the locals come to ski even when the wind gets up. There is nothing better than a day of water activity on your own shoreline where you can park your craft at your own sandy beach. If you prefer to sail, enjoy Australia's largest salt water lake at your leisure when the breeze picks up. For large boats there are two boat ramps just 1km along the waterfront.

If all that activity is too much for you then kick back in your hammock as there is no better location for a long afternoon in the shade while sampling some of the Hunter's best Semillion.

Shingles doubles as a great luxury romantic manor, or as a getaway for a larger group sleeping up to 14 people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent house suits large groups or families We all had a wonderful girls catch up weekend at Bonnells-bay. Its a lovely quiet tranquil house on the lake which we all enjoyed. Comfy beds and very spacious in all areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Property! We cannot sing enough praises about this property! We had a surprise birthday for my mum to celebrate her 60th. The location on the water was perfect for our boat and the kids had a blast tubing and swimming especially with the heat wave we had during our stay. The cupboards were well stocked with pots and pans and plenty of plates and cutlery. Big bedrooms and lovely three bathrooms were plenty to accomodate our large family gathering. Only drawback would be that there was no air conditioning which probably wouldn't normally be an issue except for the scorcher of a summer we have had. Plenty of extra linen was great as well. A beautiful and homely setting for an amazing weekend. Thank you Kylie!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hot !! A wonderful position and a large house, allowing lots of privacy. Big negative is no air-con or ceiling fans. We couldn't use the dining area as much as we wanted to, as it was like a sauna with lovely views, but no windows for air flow. The floor fans didn't help much. Providing extension cords, so they can be put into better positions could have helped. It is a bit of a tired house, that needs a good clean. Lots of old crumbs came out of sofa when you sat down & one toilet had not been cleaned at all (was rather Yuk)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended We stayed at Shingles delight for a church leaders retreat for team building and reflection. It's such a delightful and enjoyable mansion to stay. It's one of the best place we used for the last five years. And we will surely go back again. The place is huge, easy to drive to from Sydney. It has fantastic waterfront view. STATE of art facility. Great table games as well. Above all, it's economical and convenient. Reasonable price for two nights stay. All sorts of shops around within five mins drive. All in all, we had a wonderful time.
