Clearview Cottage is located in the village of Sunshine on the southern shores of Lake Macquarie near Morisset, NSW, just 70 minutes easy drive on the M1 expressway formerly the F3 north from Hornsby.

The way Clearview is represented here in pictures and words is 'exactly' as it is. Clearview is a testament that the very first holiday houses on the Lake acquired the best waterfront locations.

Clearview is positioned forward of other houses giving you a unrestricted 180-degree Northerly outlook and is just 5 metres to the water's edge.

Your holiday house is private, quiet, with a sturdy shared jetty with all-round rubber buffer, deep water, sandy shore and is complimented with a pleasant north-easterly breeze in summer and enjoys the warm sun on the main front covered north-facing deck all day in winter.

The cottage is elevated and takes advantage of the outstanding open water outlook with the living, dining and kitchen areas all overlooking the lake through tinted windows.

Clearview is simply furnished yet very comfortable with TWO bedrooms, both with a queen bed. Two single beds are located separately and ideally located for that anytime nap. There is a modern fully-fitted kitchen with all the homely inclusions, sensor lighting, a wired smoke alarm, ceiling fans in all bedrooms, a bath-shower combo with toilet and another separate toilet.

There are two generous size decks covering approx 30+ square metres, with regulation-height safety fence with a gate at stairs.

There are two digital TVs. Both are TV-DVD with separate remotes. One in living area and the other in main bedroom. There is an assortment of complimentary DVDs, a large library of books, some CDs and and a separate kiddies' play corner. A very comprehensive step-by-step list of operating instructions has been prepared to assist the less technical to confidently operate these appliances. A leather lounge suite with two recliners completes the picture.


The lake is your backyard and is perfect for any water activity with unrestricted open water and nearest landfall up to 1 kilometre away. Complimentary binoculars are provided.

A convenient and very modern new shopping centre is just a 5-minute drive away with Coles, take-aways, post office, a motel bottleshop with bistro, cafes, restaurants and a variety of other shops and services.

A wide and non-congested boat ramp is just 250 metres away and is part of a very large level grassed park, an opportunity for the bigger kids to kick a ball. The park has toilets, plenty of shade and an under cover electric barbeque. A newly constructed play area has just been completed.

Clearview is just 45 minutes from the renowned Hunter Valley Wine District. Relaxing on a deck with a glass or two after a day out, watching the yachts glide by or after dinner checking out the Milky Way is indeed memorable. A feature are the late Friday afternoon and weekend sailing regattas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Perfect! We loved this cottage, exceeded our expectations and we really didn't want to leave. Closer to the water and more privacy than other places we've booked, panoramic views and great swimming metres from the deck. Inside the cottage was very clean and exceptionally well stocked - provisions felt thoughtful. Very comfy lounge and recliners too. Local shopping centre has everything. Bob and Roslyn made the booking/confirmation/directions easy as. Considering that you're right on the water - best value for money by far. The weather wasn't even very good, very windy, but we still loved it and can't wait to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little piece of heaven What a great little cottage. Was the best little get away for our family of four. We spent the whole time fishing from the jetty, swimming or just relaxing inside or on the balcony. The kids loved feeding the regular pelicans that visited each day and catching fish! The area is so very peaceful and everything we hoped for. We will definitely be coming back. Bob and Ros are so pleasant to deal with and we would recommend Clearview Cottage to anyone looking for that little piece of heaven on the waters edge.
