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.

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.

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

The kitchen has a fridge, oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher. Pantry essentials are also provided such as coffee and tea.

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. 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.

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.

Please note that the jetty in front of the house belongs to our neighbours. However, 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.

As indicated in the details section of this listing the house doesn't have air conditioning. To keep cool on those hot days there are two ceiling fans in lounge area and a portable tower fan which can be moved to the desired area. To keep warm, there is a wood fireplace. Please consider the lack of air conditioning before booking in the summer or winter months as some people are more affected by the heat and cold than others.

Sorry, no pets please.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So tranquil! A stunning property right by the lakeside, you couldn't have asked for a better view. So relaxing to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and take in the beautiful scenery. Thanks for an amazing stay, we hope to visit again soon! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idyllic weekend retreat We stayed as a couple over the past weekend and just loved the house. Views were amazing and we spent many an hour on the back deck with wine and nibbles just chilling and looking out over the lake. The house itself was lovely, the beds were really comfortable, all amenities were great. We loved the breeze coming in from the lake and the sounds of the birds in the morning. The couches were also super comfy. We came up from Sydney for the Bruce Springsteen concert and the Hunter was an easy 40 minute drive away. Plenty of places to eat in Toronto which is only a short drive away. I would highly recommend this lovely house and will definitely be back again, hopefully for a bit longer. We may even bring the kids next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall satisfactory it was wonderful. House was clean, paddle boat in the morning was great exercise. However, BBQ was too dirty to use{Must be previous person didn't clean at all}. We brought up small BBQ for ourselves. When the rain came for one day, we force to stay at house. Staying house when raining wasn't great at all. Internet stopped or very very slowed when raining. Sticky and moisture, fan cant handle this situation much. I think, its better to install air conditioning and increase the price. Other than that, it was great house to come in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic find in Lake Macquarie We were a group of 4 adults consisting of 2 couples on holiday in NSW, domestic & international tourists who thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the Watersedge property & were wowed by it's stunning location. We stayed between 9th - 12th January & as in a previous review we can concur that the weather was hot but once we opened the house up & the lake breeze blew though the house the temperatures dropped to make it comfortable. Great location to explore the local beaches & Hunter Valley on day tours & enjoy the bottled delights of an evening whilst fishing, relaxing & taking in the wonderful environment that Lake Macquarie has to offer. Toronto is very handy for a local shop & the house is very well appointed with good quality appliances so you don't have to eat out. To further qualify, we travel regularly & prefer to stay in houses & appartments when on holidays & have done so in some great location such as Madrid, Seville, Paris, London to name a few. This property rates as highly as anywhere we have stayed & would suggest a dose of reality should be digested prior to providing reliable reviews. This review is based on my opinion & I do not wish to offend anyone.
