Starfish Cottage is perfect for family, or couples getaways.
Newly available after friends said it's too beautiful not to let others enjoy it...Starfish Cottage is less than an hour north on the freeway. Swim, sail, waterski, moor your boat at the private jetty, fish, toast the stunning setsets, swing in the hammock, lounge on the newly refurbished large deck, or rest in the shade of the cabana while the lake shimmers in front of you.
The hardest decision will be shall we ski,sail or paddle now or what book or newspaper to read next... and has that bottle chilled long enough..while the small kids splash in the shallow shores and the big kids use all the water toys (Free use of 2 kayaks, a surf ski or boogie boards), dive off the jetty, sail if they're boaties or amuse themselves with the pool or air hockey table, play play-station or watch TV in the separate downstairs games room, ride the tree to tree flying fox, or play cricket or footy on the truly massive waterfront lawn. Water-skiers and sailors will particularly appreciate being able to come right into the sandy beach or pull up at the jetty for disembarking.
Plenty of sunlounges and chairs to star gaze at night and watch the spectacular shooting stars whilst listening to the clinking masts of the moored boats and watching for possums and hooting owls. Lots of books, board games and DVD's to wile away the hours.
Summerland Point fronting Frying Pan Bay has the best aspect of Lake Macquarie and Starfish Cottage is in the best street on the Coast with the longest block.

Charmingly freshly decorated in a starfish/beach/nautical theme on the magnificent largest salt water lake in the Southern hemisphere and providing plenty of places to explore in your boat - Starfish Cottage will seem like a million miles away from your normal life - but close enough to have friends up for lunch, duck over to the Hunter Valley to the Vineyards, make the short drive to the beautiful beaches of Catherine Hill Bay or Caves Beach, dive down to the Entrance, Terrigal or Avoca for something different or meander to the local Summerland Point or Gwandalan Italian or Thai restaurants. If staying casual and living the great Aussie dream of cooking on the BBQ for breakfast, lunch and dinner sounds like heaven, then there's always fresh supplies from the supermarket a quick stroll around the waterfront.
The local liquor shop, newsagency, petrol station, hot bread shop, hot seafood and good old fashioned Aussie hamburger ( with beetroot if you fancy it) and chips ensure your time at Starfish Cottage is going to be easy...you're going to be congratulating yourself on taking time to stop and smell the roses and appreciate how beautiful life in Sydney is.
If you are feeling energetic or simply had enough of your motorised watersports you can always walk the beautiful lakeside walk, paddle across the bay to the park or grab your bike and follow the trails to Gwandalan or around to the local cordoned off swimming area at the picturesque Sandy Beach.
Mums and dads, small children, teenagers, inlaws, state and international visitors will all love Starfish Cottage - a fantastic taste of Australian waterfront living ...you'll be planning when you can come back as soon as you arrive.
