Kataway is named after the beautiful bay the house overlooks on Myall Lake.


Kataway is situated on a private road offering uninterrupted views over park like gardens to Myall Lake at the front and unspoilt wooded hillside views from the rear of the house.

Kataway is a double story house featuring large open plan living spaces with timber and sisal flooring and high cathedral ceilings.

In the heat of the summer Kataway is light and bright catching the breezes off the lake.

The living spaces open onto a huge deck that allows you to take in views of the garden and the lake. Passing kangaroos and even the occasional koala can sometimes be spotted too.

The deck is furnished with timber lounge chairs & a great dining bar table with market umbrella. Its a great spot for breakfast, and afternoon nap or sunset cocktails.

The Webber bbq is out there too.

After a hard day on the lake, at the beach or exploring the surrounding countryside, it is comfort that you want and this is what sets Kataway apart from other holiday accommodation.

Kataway is not just another holiday rental. It is a holiday home with real character, comfort and style. Everything that you have at home is here, whether it is a proper stock pot for cooking a great pasta, a fantastic library of books or the latest Vanity Fair, it is at your fingertips.

There are several separate relaxing areas for friends, family and children.

The decor is an eclectic mix of 50's style, French provincial, chandeliers, crazy artworks and quirky decorative touches, huge comfortable sofas to stretch out on and plenty of armchairs to curl up on.

On cold winter nights gather round the wood burning combustion stove in the main living area and with oil fired radiators in every room, Kataway stays warm and cozy through the cooller months.

Upstairs and downstairs each have their own TV areas which include widescreen tvs, dvd and dvd collections. Cd player, CDs radio and an ipod docking station.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped with all utensils

and crockery needed for preparing, cooking and serving

light snacks through to full dinner parties. There is an electric stove, range and grill, microwave, fridge/freezer a Nespresso coffee machine you will have to take your own Nespresso coffee pods to use and a Webber gas bbq for cooking the freshly caught seafood from the fish co-op if its easier. There is also an outdoor fireplace/bbq area which is a great spot to stargaze from.

Kataway offers a peaceful master bedroom with king size bed and fabulous views over the garden to the lake. Built in robes offer plenty of storage space.

The second guest room offers queen size bed and scenic views of the wooded hillside at the rear of Kataway.

The 2 main bedrooms share a spacious bathroom with separate shower and bathtub.

Downstairs you will find a huge rumpus room with comfortable sofa, armchairs and dining setting, ideal for the kids to escape to.

Adjoining the rumpus room is a huge twin bedroom with sliding doors onto the garden.

The downstairs accommodation is serviced by an ensuite shower room with toilet plus a separate laundry with frontloader.

Kataway is a fantastic holiday home to make your own when on holiday. It is ideally located for you and your guests to enjoy the sights and sounds of Seal Rocks and the Great Lakes or to be used as a comfortable base for exploring the surrounding beaches, lakes and attractions.

Whatever option you choose, Kataway makes the perfect getaway.

Kataway is a home to enjoy and be comfortable in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic house Kataway is the perfect place for a long weekend away from Sydney. The place has everything you could need to guarantee a relaxing stay and offers just the right amount of seclusion. With the beach a short drive away and a huge deck with view of the lake we couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weekend Getaway Our weekend to Kataway was everything we had hoped for and more. What a beautiful place for our family members to gather and spend quality time together!! Which of course was nearly always on the deck admiring the views and enjoying the serenity!! There is pretty much something for everyone at that big house and we are already speaking about our next holiday back- but next time we would definitely like to spend longer to enjoy everything that there is to offer! It was the little touches that were most appreciated and dealing with the owners was easy and enjoyable. So thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place for families We really enjoyed our stay. The house is what you're looking for in size and quality. Plenty of space even with a full house. Lots of entertainment options for kids and adults. Those sunsets from the deck, looking at the gorgeous views, were unforgettable. The location is beautiful, close to the lake and to many local attractions. Definitely a place to comeback to. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Place with amazing Views Overlooking and surrounded by the Myall Lakes National Park our stay was filled with birdsong and 4 seasons in each day. The big wood fire with plenty of timber available made the spacious, very comfortable living area warm and enjoyable. The surf was firing at various locations with options available for all skill levels. Our 3 year old caught his first fish (26cm) on the sandy and protected boat beach, which we cooked for him on the deck for lunch!
