(Mid Week price quoted by HomeAway is incorrect- please enquire for correct quote) Located in an elevated waterfront position, the house overlooks Smiths Lake to the sand-bar, Cellito Beach and Pacific ocean. This pole house has two pavilions and is typical of modern Australian beach architecture. It has 3 bedrooms and a large open plan living area. With lots of floor to ceiling windows facing the water a view is never far away.
This private hide-away is a great place to take time-out from the stress of life. Just sit back, take in the views, the breeze and quiet bird songs. Or take the path and a picnic hamper down the back steps to the lakes edge.
Famous Blueys Beach, Elizabeth Beach and Seal Rocks are nearby. Only a few minutes further, hidden by bushland and large rock outcrops you will find Shelleys Beach.
Pacific Palms is a small enclave locked in by Myall Lakes National Park, Wallis Lakes, Smiths lake, Booti Booti National Park and the Pacific Ocean. Together they make over 100 kilometres of lakes hugging the coastline with at times only sand dunes separating the lakes from the ocean.
Smiths lake is located in between Myall Lakes and Wallis Lake and is 20 mins drive south of Forster and 2.5/3 hours drive from Sydney. The house is perched 20 metres high on the lakes edge overlooking the Sandbar. This is one of the prized positions of Smiths Lake as it is in a secluded spot overlooking the ocean and fronting the best part of lake. This part of the lake has lots of calm shallow sandy bottomed water to swim in (Ideal for kids).
The house is also a short stroll to the locals shops: bakery, grocery, butcher, liquor shop, take-away and the famous local cafe frothy coffee down on the jetty (what more do you need)!
The Noreaster is a modern architect designed pole house nestled amongst the tree-tops, with two pavilions joined by a glass walk-way. For the ultimate in relaxed living, every room as been designed to take advantage of the views, light and breeze.
The living area has bi-fold doors that open out to the deck that overlooks the lake, sandbar and ocean. The house and waterfront is protected from Southern and Western wind. On hot days the sea breeze (noreaster) kicks in and acts as natural air conditioning keeping the temperature surprising mild on hot summer days. There are purposefully placed louvre windows designed to catch the summer breeze and flow it through through all rooms in the house, breeze ways.
You can also enjoy the home theatre sound system and DVD, while the cooks kitchen is fully equipped. For those staying during the cooler months, in front of the open fireplace is the best place to be. To bring the outdoors in, the two queen bedrooms each have a full wall of glass, and the bathroom has floor to ceiling louvres that open to a private fern courtyard. At your back door is a invigorating outdoor shower, and further down a short path is the lakes edge. At the front of the house is a protected BBQ area, perfect to use any time of the year.
