An absolute waterfront cottage on a quiet cul de sac next to an idyllic reserve with breathtaking views. A perfect spot for a weekend away. Ideal for couples or small family.

The house sits right on the watersedge beside a leafy, picturesque reserve. It’s a split level 2 bedroom house.

The master bedroom is a loft style bedroom on the 2nd floor of the split level home and has water views with queen bed with built in wardrobes as well a walk in wardrobe. It has an ensuite with shower.

The second bedroom is the size of two bedrooms and sits on the 1st level of the split level home. It has a queen size bed and a double size bed and a cot if we know in advance.

The second bathroom is a bit dated but very functional with a shower and also contains washing machine.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher. Pantry essentials are also provided such as coffee and tea. There is a dining table for 6 people.

There are two separate living areas. The main lounge room has a TV free to air only. There are doors opening onto outdoor deck overlooking water with outdoor table for 4-5. The second lounge room is on the same floor as the second bedroom and overlooks the water.

There is wifi and a playstation 3 that has a random selection of kids movies on it and some games.

Jetty: Guests can access the jetty but keep in mind the jetty is shared with our neighbours.

There is a gas BBQ in the boathouse which can be wheeled outside in front of the boathouse for those who love to BBQ by the waters edge.

Guests have access to entire house except for garage. Parking is available past the garage in front of the house or beside the garage. If you have a trailer it's best to park it on the street as it would be difficult to turn around.

There are three sets of stairs in this split level home. Those with mobility issues or small toddlers may want to take into consideration prior to booking.

There is a public boat launch and small playground less than 500m away.

Paddleboards one adult and one junior paddleboard are available.

Lake Macquarie is just over an hour's drive north of Sydney. The area offers excellent boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, bushwalking & picnicking, and is just 40 minutes away from the Hunter Valley wineries, and 30 minutes Newcastle.

We are close to many sailing clubs Toronto, Wangi and Sunshine. We are minutes away from the Toronto Private Hospital.

We are at the end of a quiet cul de sac next to a reserve. The nearest town is Toronto which is only a few minutes drive away which has an Aldi, Coles or Woolworths, café and restaurants.

Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 12pm. We have a strict no party policy. Most people do but we ask that if you use the oven/BBQ that you leave it in a similar state as you found it. Sorry, our house is not suitable for pets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST EXPERIENCE EVER ! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER IN TRAVEL HISTORY ! We have travelled the world and lived at some of the amazing holiday homes but the VOTE FOR THE MOST PATHETIC CUSTOMER SERVICE goes to this one ! We booked in for 2 nights at Sheryl Dunlop’s place last weekend. The booking was made couple of months in advance as our parents were visiting us from overseas to make their Australian trip memorable. When we checked into the place the place was burning HOT as NSW was experiencing a heat wave on the weekend unfortunately .We recorded the temperature on our phones and it was 40 degrees inside the house. To our dismay there was no AC in the entire house , only 2 fans in living room that were barely functioning . No fans in bedrooms too. No way we could have spent this holiday smiling and happily if though that was the plan. When we contacted the owner Sheryl she REFUSED to acknowledge the issue and gave her expert advice that we should rather go for a swim ! Neither my parents nor us know how to swim. Moreover we didn’t pay almost $500 to stay in water . We wanted to enjoy the place we rented and not sleep in water! We politely asked Sheryl if there was any way she could help , we were ready to vacate the place the moment we checked in as it was impossible to stay even for a minute being drenched in sweat . We spoke to the cleaner of the house over the phone and she understood the issue and even said that she advised the owner earlier when she came to clean the house that it was horribly hot inside the house for anyone to stay but the owner did not pay attention being INSENSITIVE to the needs of her guests. We stayed only one night despite of booking for two, the owner did not acknowledge the issue as obviously they never wanted to make a refund for the second night we did not stay for but paid for . The neighbours said the owner had taken off the air con in the house when they bought the house as they feared people will misuse it .We even saw an air con unit not functional in one of the store room. How can you expect to run your business when you CANT TRUST your customers ?! Is it ONLY about earning money and not about winning your customer’s trust, making them feel happy and giving them the value for their money ?! We had to spend our night on mattresses put on the outside deck in open covered with mosquitos and cockroaches ! And to our dismay the owner Sheryl termed it as “our intolerance to heat” making us feel as if it was all our fault . Any normal human being would have been unhappy without fans or air con in 40 degrees. This was more of a jail and not a holiday for us ! This place ONLY is fit to be rented out if the weather is under 20 degrees otherwise you will end up regretting wasting your money (we stayed only for 1 night and booked for 2 nights), time (we travelled 2 hours from Syd) only to have the WORST experience ever in our travel history ! Thanks to the inconsiderate, unconcerned and ignorant property owners. They have NO sense of commitment towards customers to provide a pleasant and memorable stay . NEVER RECOMMENDING IT TO ANYONE ! BOOK IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice house We stayed only short time bit we really like this house, inside the house have everything for us, lots of towels, cooking stuffs, games. The lake in the front really nice and clean. The owner really sweet and her little son so cute :) The house very close to supermarket. It's really good place for relaxing. I feel like I don't want to leave.....just chilling at the front of the house and look at the nice view. Thank you for a good time. Definitely I will go back there for my lovely weekend again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Little Get Away Spot! The stay was amazing. Not only is this place absolute water front in a quiet location, it is also extremely well decked out and modernised. It is perfect for a couple, a family and ideally suited to a few friends wanting to get away. Being located not far out of Sydney makes it great for even just an extended weekend. It's close to shops (the local bottle shop is even closer) and has all your own cooking amenities. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and give very detailed info. Hard to really fault this and will be certainly staying there again!
