"How's the serenity!" A Castle, like it's namesake from the movie "The Castle", is an absolute waterfront property that edges the banks of Lake King. No powerlines in sight, just uninterupted views of the lake with the mountains in the background.

Sit on the deck in summer with a cheeky chardonny, or inside by the open fire with a serene shiraz during the mild winter months, watching the seabirds and boating activities, and simply "absorb the vibe"... This 3 bedroom property provides all that you would require for your seaside holiday. A fabulous location, with it's own private jetty for fishing or water sports. Experience beautiful sunrises over the lake in the morning and soak up the sun on your sheltered deck.

'A Castle', is only 6km from Paynesville village, where you will find restaurants and cafes, two supermarkets, and quaint shops, where you can purchase that special souvenir to remind you of your seaside holiday. Both the Paynesville Cruiser Club and the Old Paynesville Pub have courtesy buses, for your convenience, if you want a night out on the town, without the worry of drink driving.

Take one of the commercial cruises from either Paynesville, Lakes Entrance, or Metung, and explore the largest inland lake system in Australia, visiting the many ports and the magnificent 90 mile surf beach. If you are lucky enough to have your own boat, the possibilities are endless, and you can divert to the less visited Rottamah Island, Sperm Whale head, And Picnic Point, just to name a few.

The yard is fully fenced both front and rear of the property, so your furry friends can enjoy your family holiday too. There are plenty of walking tracks that lead you to Paynesville, or down to the Mitchel river, and the Eagle Point wildlife sancturary. And there is wildlife in abundance! You are almost certain to see a mob of kangaroos in the afternoons along the Eagle Point to Paynesville walking track. Pelicans, plovers, kookaburras, cockatoos and parrots sharing your private garden space. Watch the dolphins gliding past, and the resident eagles soaring overhead.This really is an escape from the pressures of the city.

A castle also has it's own section of beach, for the children and the dogs to swim, or launch your kayaks and canoes for a row around the foreshore. Plenty of fishing to be enjoyed and cooked on the barbecue in the summer sun. Some of the best fishing to be had, is up one of the many rivers that feed into the lake system. The Mitchell river is within walking distance from 'A Castle' and provides ample shoreline to enjoy this relaxing activity.

So many things to do and see. Why would you go anywhere else, 'Ahh, The Serenity'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb comfort! This place has a real charm about it. Being a cold night when we arrived, I was pleased to see both fireplaces had been fully loaded and ready to light. This instantly made it more cosy. The big, bright living areas, the comfy bedding and the overall atmosphere and being right on the lake made it an amazing weekend getaway. We'll be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We loved staying at A Castle, it was very well equipt and the position of the house is perfect. The way the house is set back from the water makes the back veranda a wonderfully sunny spot, perfect for some winter sun. It felt like we had stayed a week instead of just the weekend, it was very relaxing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serenity We absolutely loved the house, we were so relaxed and comfortable. We have two teenage girls and it was just lovely to sit by the fire and relax with them. It was the first time we were able to get away with our dogs which made it even more special having our whole family together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing getaway Just returned from 5 days staying at A Castle, we were in dire need of a relaxing break and that's exactly what we got. The house was incredibly clean and comfortable, amazing view of the lake, spent much time on the beautiful deck soaking up the sun, yes we were very lucky and had beautiful blue skies the whole stay. With the amazing open fire and the wood heater in the dining area we were warm as toast all night. Great well equipped kitchen too! Bonus was we could take our dog who was in heaven the whole stay with secured yard front and back although there were parts of the fence he nearly escaped, probably not a problem with most dogs, we think our dog was bred with a kangaroo!! Thankyou Wendy and Gary, we'll definitely visit again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best We are from Queensland and on a three month road trip with our two dogs. Have just spent a great 14 days at A Castle . The house is very clean and comfortable and has everything you would want . It's right on the lake and the view from the back deck is amazing . We all loved it . There is a great walking track at the end of the road that goes right through to Paynesville .(Great for walking the dogs ) Owners are really easy to deal with . Great house and great area.
