Upstairs the large open living area with floor to ceiling glass windows and doors, opens to an entertaining deck and spectacular water views. The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and microwave etc.

Local Attractions

The Lake is a saltwater inlet separated from the ocean by a natural sandbar. The water directly in front of the property is calm with no surf and offers swimming, fishing, watersports and a sandy beach. The boat ramp located next to the Frothy Coffee offers easy water access. The local surfbeaches Blueys, Elizabeth and Boomerang are a short drive away.

Other nearby activities include golf, tennis, bushwalking, local markets, 4WD trails and horseriding.

Just a short stroll away are the local shops offering a supermarket, butcher, bakery, bottle shop and takeaway food.

Forster/Tuncurry is only a 20 minute drive and offers a large shopping centre, cinemas, restaurants, clubs, boat and fishing cruises.

Note: Smiths Lake is a Salt Water lake and is regularly open to the ocean. When it is closed the water level can rise 1 to 2 metres and the size of the beaches near the house can vary. Most of the photographs were taken with the lake open and the water level low. A few of the photos show the surf beach on the other side of the lake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful home and location There were ten adults for three nights. Lounges, verandahs, garden and eating areas just brilliant. Third bathroom off the bunk room really only suitable for kids though as very small. A lovely recent refurbishment. Lake is great for canoeing and swimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stay Our Book club had a wonderful and relaxing weekend at MonkeyVilla. The house accommodated 10 easily with a well appointed kitchen and separate living areas. The setting is beautiful and the local wildlife provided many amusing moments. The lake is great for swimming and would make a fabulous family holiday destination. An added bonus is the excellent coffee at FrothyCoffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This place is a real gem and perfect for doggies! First of all, the house is amazing and in a great location! My partner and I visited with our dog Elke, and it couldn't have been more accommodating and comfortable. The house essentially has everything you need, including all the bits and pieces in the kitchen that come in handy (foil, cling wrap, salt/pepper/sugar, tea/coffee, appliances etc...). The house is surrounded by a wonderful balcony, with views of the beautiful flora and fauna of the area, and the lovely lakefront. One critical factor for us was accommodating our dog, Elke. The house is surrounded by a secure fence with a wonderful yard filled with all sorts of things to investigate. She really enjoyed patrolling the balcony and observing all her surrounds. The many huge windows in the top living area mean't she was always entertained. And the house itself is very pet friendly. Whilst dogs aren't permitted in the lake across from the house (plently of native birds hang out there), there is a point very close by where they can swim at Brambles Reserve (see Midcoast Council's page on dog friendly places for swimming etc). We found that the Nine Mile Beach at Tuncurry was the best and most flexible option for swimming; off leash all day in a huge area...there is also a new dog park right across from this part of the beach where plenty of local dogs were playing. Smiths Lake is more isolated than I had imagined, but that made for a perfect holiday for us. The area is really beautiful and feels untouched...so quiet. And a short and pleasant drive to Forster/Tuncurry where several restaurants and shops are located. We highly recommend this accommodation - especially if you're looking for a special holiday with your beloved pet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great house for families We had 7 adults and three small children stay and there was plenty of room for everyone in the house, the addition of 3 living spaces really gave us room to spread out for some solitude when needed. The location is excellent with Frothy's Cafe a 30 second walk away for coffee, breakfast or lunch and the childrens playground just across the street. We were impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was, including the coffee machine. The only downside - and totally out of anyone's control - was the very persistent and bold kookaburras who wouldn't take no for an answer when we tried to BBQ on the deck. Aside from that, a perfect relaxing getaway spot and we look forward to returning again.
