Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful property. Our party guests stayed here recently. We have stayed here ourselves a couple of times and it never disappoints. Lovely cottage with a gorgeous view of the lake. See the yachts racing by and the bird life up close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous location! This is a great spot for a relaxing holiday: comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location on the water's edge, and an easy drive from Sydney. Six of us - two adults and four kids (9 - 16) spent 5 days here and had a great time. The cottage is larger inside than it looks - there was adequate room for us all. The best thing was being right on the lake: a lovely view, and a private jetty. We brought a sailing dinghy and went out on the water every day. We'd definitely come again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Spot We had a lovely weekend relaxing and watching the world go buy. Even on a winters day Sunshine Cottage is still a great weekend escape. The cottage has all you need for a restful break. The lake at your door and local shops only 5mins away once you arrive there is no need to leave till check out time. A great way to unwind. Will come back again. Cheers Linda
