About Julie & Philip Batty
Philip and Julie and I have been together since we were 16 (we are high school sweet hearts) we are professional people and we have a daughter and a son who are in the mid 20's and 1 dog Chloe. We have been associated with the Smiths Lake for the past 20 years. If we are not out on the lake boating we are sitting on the back deck relaxing watching the sunset or swimming and walking at one of the many local beaches. Its a magical place and once you spend time in the area you won't wish to leave!
Julie & Philip Batty purchased this House in 2008
Why Julie & Philip Batty chose Smiths Lake
We previously owned a house across the road and we were looking for a house that when you open the front door you take in the magnificent view of the Lake. This property is perched high overlooking the blue water of Smiths Lake and the house gives us lots of sun in the morning and then in the afternoon where the sun sets are spectacular. The street is a no through road so it doesn't receive much traffic and the area is peaceful and quiet.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the view you are never tired of sitting on the back deck and taking in the view watching the world pass you by. You will enjoy all the little extra touches that are provided in the house that many other holiday houses don't provide. Our beds are comfortable and the house is air conditioned so whether summer or winter you are covered. The area is so quiet no traffic noise just the serenity of this magical area.

Beautiful, clean, modern house
Fantastic and peaceful
Easy to find using maps. Parking ok for 3 cars. House comfortable and well laid out with adequate utensils and furnishings. Good games room. We had an enjoyable stay with our extended family. Thank you.
Thank you for the very positive feedback on your stay at Acque Blu with your family.
We are glad you all enjoyed your time.
However we feel concerned that based on your positive comments both on the web and privately that we only achieved a 4 star rating without any justification in relation to our property.
We can see that you are new to using the stayz/homeaway system therefore if you keep in mind you are rating our property overall in the same price range and type of property and not comparing it to more expensive or less expensive properties.
Holiday owners will be rating yourself as well, as a guest.
Unjustified and unclear ratings can effect both the owners and guests for future stays.
Thanks Julie and Phil
Loved our stay! The place is beautiful with a gorgeous back deck over looking the lake which was perfect day and night! There was so much bird life which was lovely! Plus having the kayaks and tinny was great for a lake day and very fun!
The place was lovely and we will certainly be back again!
Thanks for your review Amelia so glad you enjoyed your stay, the sound of the birds in the morning and the peace and tranquility of the area is very special.
Its a great place to visit and chill out!
Hope to see you back again
thanks Julie and Phil
Excellent Smith’s Lake Getaway
Amazing place to stay with all the amenities required. Beautiful sunsets, Sea toys for the lake and a short stroll to the Frofy Coffee.. As Smith’s Lake regulars we have stayed in many houses over the last 15 years and AcqueBlue is one of the best.. We will be back
Thanks Kent look forward to your return visit and we do try very hard to present a wonderful property
Clean, bright ,inviting, relaxing, beautiful
We loved the birdlife, view and ambience of property. Great for 2 families. We will return for sure
Thanks Trish we enjoy the birds coming to visit.
Relaxed enjoyable environment.
We have stayed at Smiths Lake quite a few times over the years and have, for one reason or another, never returned to any of ther holiday houses we have stayed at. After our week at Acque Blue this will have changed and will certainly endevour to book out next stay there when we next return to Smiths Lake.
Acque Blue is a well presented, clean and comfortable accommodation, with wonderful views accross the lake in very quiet surrounds.
Thanks for the review Ted hope you enjoyed your anniversary away, look forward to you coming back again soon.
Our house is in a quiet area perched high creating a warm sunny spot to sit back and enjoy the view and surrounds. Once you arrive you realise that our property has great attibutes and you will enjoy your stay and wonder why you hadnt visited previously.
