A renowned Eastern Suburbs architect has combined his unique beach house design with a rare deep waterfront position, an idyllic north easterly aspect, safe sandy beach and private jetty, to create this first class holiday haven in the serene fishing village of Wagstaffe. The interior aesthetic is relaxed with an understated elegance and a neutral palette that blends harmoniously with the tranquil surrounds. The kitchen is simple and streamlined, with gas cook-top, electric oven and stainless steel finishes, adjoining the generous dining area that has views across the water.

Step down into the split level lounge which features a series of bi-fold doors connecting the interior with the outdoor dining area and a small deck, plunge pooldimensions approx. 3.9 x 1.6m, garden, beach and jetty.

The bedroom suites are all first class, with one queen guest suite on this level with feature bathroom and plenty of storage space. On the upper level, the second guest suite also features a spacious bathroom with bush and water views. As you cross the foot bridge landing and open the door to the master suite you will instantly fall in love with the free-standing pedestal bath and pebble feature that runs across the floor, the padded window seat, stylish feature lights, and the most magnificent views. The Juliet balcony provides the perfect place to sit and watch the boat life on the bay.

Just a few minutes' drive to Killcare Beach and Bells at Killcare resort, or a short trip around to Hardys Bay village, this premium property offers a highly sought-after, absolute waterfront experience.

The area is surrounded by the natural beauty of Brisbane Waters and the Bouddi National Park, including Half Tide Rocks & the walking track to Lobster Beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely weekend even though it rained.... Two families stayed here for one weekend. Unfortunately it rained almost non stop from Friday night right though to Sunday morning. The kids (3 under 5) managed to get a swim in on the Friday afternoon in the pool and even managed to throw a line in off the back jetty and catch 4 fish in a 30min window when the rain slowed down. Even with such terrible weather, this house managed to keep everyone entertained. The kitchen was more than adequate, which helped as we were cooped inside. We were walking distance from a park. The games and videos were also an added bonus. As was the family of ducks that were a constant feature on the lawn. The lovely welcome pack we found on the kitchen bench was also a bonus. Would definitely stay here again, and would pray for nicer weather next time so we could really enjoy everything this house has to offer – like the amazing view :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our FAVOURITE PLACE! <3 We are currently on our way home from Wagstaffe. All very sad to be leaving. I couldn't wait to leave a review to share our experience with everyone. The Optimiste Boathouse is a hidden treasure.. The most relaxing, peaceful place for anyone's soul. We visited for my husbands 30th with our two little boys ( 4 & 7 months ). The area is perfect we fished on the jetty and walked over the little beach area near the wharf to play in the sand. We count ourselves so lucky to have been able to stay and are already looking at dates to come back! It makes me sad that people have left comments on what the boathouse was missing because I couldn't fault one thing. The view you wake up to every morning is priceless! We took away the most special weekend which we will forever be grateful for. Don't think about booking, DO IT. You will not be disappointed Love The Dunns xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place!!!! We loved our stay at Wagstaffe, beautiful house and breath taking surroundings. Most relaxing weekend away I've had in a very long time! Everything we needed was in the house and the hosts even left us a welcome gift of wine, chocolates and cheese-all of which were delicious! Highly recommend staying here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning water view, great location and house We were totally blown away by the stunning view from the house. Waking up to that every morning was magical. We are a family of 4 with two kids under 12, and the location was perfect. Private jetty meant we could hire a boat from a nearby boat shed and come and go as we please. Brisbane Waters was a great place to go boating all day and we also ended up hiring fishing gear from the boat shed. Daily ducks came up onto the grass to say hello (and get fed). A treat for the kids! Not to mention those pelicans and other birds all around us! The house- kitchen is adequate. I agree with previous post , don't do anything fancy. We ate home every day with simple menus. General store across the road does provide breakfast, coffees, and some hot food for lunch. Bring a hairdryer and your own toiletries as those are not provided for. Rooms and beds were comfy, clean and modern ensuites. Merely constructive comments. We totally loved our stay there. Can't recommend enough for its perfect location. There were paddle boarders, jet skiers, boats of all kinds going past, and the public ferry is 2 doors away! We got the ferry to Ettalong (5min ride) to hire our boat. No traffic noise (apart from the occasional boat), peaceful location, great view. Bliss!
