The perfect home for a family gathering! Lakeside has everything you could ever need, and is immaculately clean. Kerrie and Ross were extremely helpful, and made us feel very welcome. We highly recommended Lakeside@Summerland Point.
Welcoming holiday home
From the moment we walked in we felt we were guests in someone’s much loved holiday home. The cleanliness and attention to detail was impressive. There were surprises in every room for the kids to discover such as toys, books, games, cds and dvds which all came in useful during rainy weather. The kitchen and bathroom were well supplied and felt like home. The jetty was great fun. Fishing was relaxing. The kayaks were used every day. We would love to return for a longer stay as the kids did not want to go home. Neither did we.
Susan and Daniel
We didn't get to meet Susan and her family but we did exchange several messages before and during their stay. They left the house clean and tidy and left a lovely comment in our guest book. We would happily have them stay again.
The house was great and had everything we could have asked for. Was very clean, the view and use of the kayaks was awesome and the added things around the house just for guests was really special.
Beautiful, peaceful awesome stay with awesome view
We went back as a family for the second time and again the view took our breath away.
The house is beautifully decorated. Comfortable to stay and they have lots of little things to make the stay even better. Thanks for all the nice, well looked after games and puzzles.
Well equipped kitchen, good pans and knives are appreciated. So peaceful! We will be back as everything was great! Thank you!
The House was perfect for our Aust Day long weekend getaway. The jetty was great for the boat, the ‘big boys’ enjoyed the fishing. The kitchen and BBQ was well equipped, and back yard overlooking the lake was beautiful, ladies enjoyed some wine while the kids enjoyed kayaking. A bit of a drive from the beach and shops, but once you’ve settled in there’s no reason to leave.
Everyday is Sunday
Great house with a stunning location. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The house is extremely well equipped and has everything you could possibly want. It felt like home as soon as we arrived.
Close to the boat ramp we were able to moor our boat at the jetty at the front of the the house and enjoy all our water activities. Would definitely recommend as a great holiday location for the family.
Apart from just relaxing & taking in the view from the back veranda, on top of the boat shed or lazing in the hammock by the water’s edge, there is plenty to do in & around Summerland Point.
Fishing from the jetty (there is some basic gear in the down stairs games room)
Take out our kayaks, we have a single & a double. Try fishing whilst you are out. Bonny Boy creek is just off to the right, past the last house. It has a fallen tree to paddle under & is fun for kids to explore. You can’t get very far in though. Another paddle destination is round to the boat ramp area at Summerland Point to go get an ice cream.
Bring your own boat, there is a ramp in Summerland Point & a jetty in front of the house to tie up to. The jetty is shared with one neighbour, so please only tie up on our side. Boat hire is available at Cams Wharf & Pelican.
Board games, jig saw puzzles, large selection of DVDs
Games room under the house – darts, table soccer, table tennis & also boules, totem tennis, water pistols, beach bat & ball & CD/radio player

Children’s playgrounds are located in Summerland Point near the boat ramp & at Sandy Beach & at Gwandalan Lioness Park Playground, Gamban Rd

Catherine Hill Bay (our favourite local beach). Turn off the highway into (Montefiore St. There are 3 parking areas – at the Surf Club (southern end), then just before the hill & beside the cemetery (behind the bowling club, northern end). The northern end is our preferred end. It is ever changing with the tide & weather & we enjoy swimming there. There is also a rock platform to explore (take thongs or similar as it is rough underfoot). The southern end is patrolled by life savers in season. Catho Pub is a popular place to visit. They have live music on Sunday afternoons (Saturday afternoons also in summer).
Munmorah State Conservation Area (see brochure) Frazer Beach is another favourite beach (patrolled in season) & we love walking along the rocks to Gravelly Beach, ideally at a lowish tide (again take thongs). The view from Wybung Head is spectacular. There is also nudist Birdie Beach. Park entry fees apply.
Budgewoi Beach (encompassing also Birdie Beach to the north & Lakes Beach to south- patrolled) is a really long beach that is lovely to stroll along.
