  • We loved every minute of our stay at Little Sea Sea 💙 there isn't a single thing that Genina hasn't thought of. A beautiful space in a wonderful location, we'll definitely be back!

    Joanne2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location

    Rob2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. Steps from the water and very short walking distance to some lovely little beaches that our 18 month old son could swim at safely. A safety gate on the steps to the deck was installed just prior to our stay and it was a god send! Thanks! Some cold beers and bubbles was a welcome surprise. Comfortable bed. Very quiet at night and we (and our son) enjoyed picking herbs from the garden to use in our dinner.

    Damian2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a tranquil, peaceful house where you can unwind and take in this totally relaxing place. The view is spectacular and even on a gloomy day it still looks beautiful. Genina met us on arrival and is very helpful and friendly. We were very impressed straight away with just about everything in this beautifully designed place. My husband is a builder and he really admired the quality of the structure, finishes and fittings. We will definitely be recommending this to our friends and family.

    Lisa2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Genina is an amazing host who has meticulously put together a exquisite, modern and tranquil place for her guests to enjoy. I will definitely be booking Little Sea Sea again in the future and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway by the water.

    Ashleigh2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about Little Sea Sea is 5 star! The beautiful waterside location make you relax from the moment you walk through the door. The apartment has everything you could wish for and more. There is a well stocked herb & veg garden which we made good use of. There is a kayak which was great for a paddle round the bay. We enjoyed every moment of our four day stay and would love to return one day.

  • My partner and I found Deeanne’s boathouse the day before check-in and we were thrilled that she could accomodate us on short notice! We enjoyed using the outdoor chess set, watching the sunsets and walking along the lake in the mornings. They kept us in the loop and were great hosts! Thank you for letting us enjoy the best of Swansea Heads 😊

    Lyndall2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing Airbnb! Spotlessly clean, every amenity one could wish for, can’t fault the place. Incredible view of the lake straight from the bedroom, just a few feet down to the waters edge. I spent two days relaxing on the balcony and down by the water reading a book and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and beauty of the place. Jan and Lloy are wonderful hosts and asked me if I needed anything from town each day as I was incapacitated with a broken ankle! Great accessibility, flat access from the parking spot and throughout the property, just a small raised lip at the front and patio doors, otherwise totally flat! Ps; the huge croissants are to die for, worth a stay even just for them!

    Munty2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place is so cozy. Beautiful decor and so clean! The view is amazing, surrounded by birds. Love it!

    Ruth2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jan & Lloy were delightful hosts. The location is superb. The extra touches for breakfast didn't go unnoticed. Walk to shops and along the lake foreshore. The bed is very comfortable and there is everything you could want in an easy and enjoyable stay.

    Marilyn2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

Michael and Trudy are fantastic hosts; quick communication, friendly and accommodating, we were a last minute booking and Michael welcomed us on arrival and showed us around the stylish suite. Super comfortable and clean, very peaceful and relaxing space, super comfy bed, pillows and linen, loved relaxing in the massive bath. Nice, private little balcony to enjoy. Really appreciated the supplied cereals, milk, tea, coffee, bread, spreads and treats. Well stocked suite, everything has been thought of including folder with local restaurants and activities and handy list of local doctor, hospital and pharmacy. It was all very easy. Ultimately, we wanted a stylish space that was peaceful to relax and enjoy our anniversary and our stay was perfect. We didn’t want to leave. Loved it, highly recommend and can’t wait to return!

  • The accommodation at Swansea Heads was fantastic. I spent 7 nights here with my grandchildren. My daughters, son-in-law and husband came and stayed for many meals. The outside entertaining area is private and there is usually a cracking breeze in the afternoons. We enjoyed an ice-cream on the front deck and steps every evening after a lovely walk to either Salts Bay, the park or the beach. Everything is within easy walking distance. The pool is amazing and the kids absolutely loved it. Martin made sure that it was sparkling clean for us. My 2 year old granddaughter was amazed by the resident blue tongue lizard and fed it the tops of the strawberries every day. Thanks for letting me stay and create some lasting memories with my family.

    Glenda2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

    Coby2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful time away, the location is stunning and everything was lovely, especially all the small touches and inclusions! We stayed with two small children and can’t wait to stay again! Roz provided a beautiful place with all amenities thought of, including welcoming treats in the fridge! Yum!

    Kathryn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Roz's place is directly opposite the beach and is spacious with all the mod cons. Lots of nice touches with coffee machine, chips, biscuits and even wine. A really comfortable space which I highly recommend.

    Luke2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot, seconds from the beach and the beautiful wading ‘grannies pool’ at the breakwater. Roz made early and informative contact. Upon arrival we had chilled wine in the fridge and plentiful snacks.

    Leigh2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and very clean place with very good amenities. Close to the beutiful beach. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this accommodation! :)

    Mirva-Kristine2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific location across the road from Blacksmiths Beach. A great little place for two people or two couples. Lots of little extra 'touches' left like a welcome bottle of wine, ice in the freezer, beach chairs and towels etc. The owners live above, which didn't create a problem for us but might be if 'noise' is an issue. The pool table was great for a fun competition between us. Great value for money!

    Judy2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had beautiful stay at Roz place. Right next to the beach and the playground. Even in peak season it’s very quiet.

    Maik2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very relaxing week at Roz’s place. Great location, just walk across the road to the beach. Comfortable, very clean apartment that has everything you need. Have already booked for the next long weekend.

There are ample seating options for in house dining starting with an 8-seater dining table in the kitchen area where you can also enjoy the lake views. You may like the casual stools and high table in the front living space or perhaps one of the two outdoor dining spots available. The dining bench on the front verandah offers lake views or you may prefer the outdoor entertainment area in the back garden. This space offers a preparation bench, BBQ, BBQ Pizza Oven Box, fridge, bar and an open fire pit and has everything you need for outdoor living. The indoor living spaces have been created to cater for everyone and allow you to enjoy the views from where ever you choose to sit.

Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and a built-in wardrobe while bedroom 3 has 2 x single beds as well a single built in robe and ottoman for storage.

All bedding comes with quality linen for your comfort. The main bathroom has been renovated to give it a modern comfortable feel but it has retained a bit of the old with a half bath under the shower to cater for any little ones who might like a bath after a day of play .There is a separate fully equipped laundry which features a new 10 kg washer and a dryer for your convenience. One of the best features of our place is the view so you will find a variety of seating around the verandah to cater for the movement of the sun throughout the day. It should be noted that if you have a toddler, the wrap around verandah does not have a rail and the front yard is not fenced.
    Whether you are looking to do a lot or nothing at all, our beautiful part of the world has a lot to offer and you can do it all from your cottage in paradise. Our area is surrounded by water and you have direct access to the lake across the road from the property. You can launch your SUP or kayak straight from the waterfront reserve or if you would prefer to bring your boat, you will find the Swansea boat ramp is a 2-minute drive around the corner. The popular swimming spot at Coon Island is a short 300 mt walk away where you can swim in the crystal-clear waters or laze in the sun on the surrounding grassed areas. The diving is spectacular, and Ian will be happy to give you some tips on the best free diving spots around the area. If you prefer to scuba dive, the local dive shop is a short 3-minute drive away. You can cast a line from the reserve or pump for nippers and scoop for prawns in the lake’s waters directly at your feet. There are also plenty of beautiful spots for snorkelling and if you would like to give it a try you will find some spare snorkelling sets in the garden shed.

Your fur baby will also enjoy exploring the many pet friendly walks around the area and you will find that they are also welcome to join you at the outdoor cafes when it’s time for well-deserved break. Swansea is predominately flat, so it is the perfect spot for a bike ride and you will you have the choice of many beautiful picnic spots including the reserve across the road. Imagine getting the adrenaline pumping by trying skydiving or maybe a jet boat ride around the lake is more you pace. You can take a drive into the Newcastle and explore the harbour or visit the beautiful Hunter Valley and its vineyards, which are about 1 hrs drive away.

You will also find some speciality shops, a bakery, newsagent, beauty services, chemist, medical services and a library. The main street of Swansea is approx. 1.5 km away which is a very quick 3-minute drive or a 15-20-minute easy walk. How ever you choose to spend your time, there is nothing better than knowing you have your own little piece of paradise waiting for you to return. Enjoy a wine or beer as you watch the sunset over the lake, light up the barbie and enjoy outdoor living, roast marshmallows over the fire-pit under the stars, have some fun playing good old fashioned board games or chill out with your favourite book or movie while you get ready to do it all again tomorrow.
  • Kylie and Ian’s slice of paradise is a great coastal holiday spot...and we can’t wait to return. The location is wonderful, with easy access to the water, and they have thoughtfully provided everything one could possibly need for a weekend, a week or a month in Swansea. It’s all there....from cosy rugs on the front veranda chairs so one can watch the sunset over the water, to a private outdoor entertainment area with fire pit, fridge and covered seating area..to all the kitchen mod cons you could need. We would definitely want to come back again one summer 🏄‍♂️

    Gina2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely people , very easy to communicate with . Can’t wait to return

    Pam2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this property is amazing - overlooking Lake Macquarie. Kylie & Ian have made the property very welcoming, everything is well kept, it has good kitchen equipment and lots of thoughtful touches. The bedrooms are great, there is a lot of living space and a big outdoor area as well as the beautiful outlook of Lake Macquarie.

    Hannah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect this place to have everything you need, and feels like home! It has a great outdoor space at the back and on the front porch to relax or socialise. They are pet friendly and our dog Bumper felt at home very quickly. Our toddler also enjoyed the spacious backyard. You are only a short drive away from many beaches, but you have a beautiful view of the lake right across the road if you feel like staying in.

    Leyra2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie was very responsive and both a great host. Amazing home with a great view, a good place if you are looking for a weekend away to relax! Definitely visit again

    2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Kylie and Ian’s place with our 4 kids for 3 nights and we wished we had booked it for longer. It was like a home away from home in the most perfect spot. Had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would definitely comeback and stay again.

    Thomas2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Photos dont do it justice! Really amazing place, Kylie and Ian thought of everything, mozzies came out, they had mozzie spray, needed help with a trailer bearing, Ian had parts and a grease gun. Next time we are bringing our animals with. Very nice clean place with everything you would need and more in a self catering unit. We will be back and will be telling our friends of this Gem of a place.

  • The attention to detail in Richard and Nerida's place is incomparable! I cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation. The location, the cleanliness and their local knowledge made this stay fantastic!

    Drew2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nerida and Richards place is lovely. Really spacious with full kitchen, dining table, good bed and everything else you could need for your stay. You have use of a lovely outdoor area as well. We were close to excellent restaurants and lots of things to do and see around the lake. Nerida and Richard are charming, friendly hosts who gave us lots of tips and then left us to enjoy the private space. In addition it is one of the cleanest Air Bnbs we have stayed in. You will not be disappointed especially if you want to stay several days in the area and take advantage of the kitchen and laundry facilities. Highly recommended.

    Glenda & Roger2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Nerida were the perfect hosts who warmly welcomed us, showed the key points of their studio and then left us undisturbed for our 4 day stay. They live above the studio but we had our own entrance and outside area so it felt very private. Lakeside and small shopping area were within a few minutes walk - and the walk through Green Point Reserve to Belmont is recommended. The studio was spacious, spotless and stylish and most importantly cool on some rather hot summer days. Can thoroughly recommend.

    Kaye2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Elisa2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Nerida’s place exceeded our expectation. The place is sparkling clean, they are quick to response to all our queries and the place is just walking distance to the lake where we went fishing. We’ll definitely come back.

    Darryl2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Nerida were very warm and friendly. Greeted us on our arrival, showed us around, explained how everything worked and suggested places of interest. They were just upstairs if we needed anything and left us to our privacy. There place was spotless and had everything you needed to be cosy and comfortable. We loved it and would stay again.

    Cosy light filled 1960s beach house in a great location.Sitting on a bluff opposite ocean reserve . Ocean, lake and mountain views from the living room and veranda. Access to the nearby channel and ocean beaches within 5 minutes walk, and only a 5 minute drive to the spectacular Caves Beach. Surrounded by a spacious garden and well away from any traffic so you can completely relax in this home away from home. Only 5 minute drive to supermarkets and cafes in Swansea and Caves Beach.
    Swansea Heads Hideaway was designed by an architect in the mid 1960s. A lot of the original character and features remain. The house is small but full of light and ocean breezes with a solar passive design. There is new split system air conditioning powered by solar panels for the hotter and cooler days.
    Swansea Heads is a beautiful area surrounded by beaches and close to Caves Beach and Swansea, both have supermarkets, shops, hotels and restaurants The cottage is opposite waterfront reserve with track down to a secret rocky beach called by locals Chalkies Beach after the prominent white chalk rock at the northern end. It's an easy 5 minute walk to explore rock platforms and swim in seclusion at Crabs Creek Walk south along the beach a little further to Frenchmans Beach (great for surfing) and Caves Beach (patrolled). Caves Beach has a Surf Live Saving Club, and the Caves Beach Hotel. There are numerous opportunities for all water sports, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing , snorkelling, boating and fishing. The bluff opposite is used frequently as a take off point for paragliders. The Belmont airport is 10 minutes away if you feel the urge to parachute or you want to go for a joy flight over this spectacular area. It is 40 minutes drive into Newcastle city centre and just a bit longer to the Hunter Valley with all its beautiful scenery, vineyards and restaurants
  • We really enjoyed our stay! The house was lovely and clean and in a great location. The host was very quick to respond and baked us a delicious banana bread on arrival.

    Merrin2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, very friendly and helpful host and lots of lovely little touches in the house. The house itself is a fabulous light-filled midcentury gem. And easy walk to a beach with spectacular coast.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Mary's Cottage. Super cute and comfy, very clean, and perfect location with amazing views over the Beach and Swansea Channel. Our kids had a great time, very child friendly, and Mary was kind enough to take our son to see her chickens and help collect eggs. Can't recommend this place enough and would definitely book again.

    Jade2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach location, perfect beach house and everything you want in a holiday home. Mary was a great host! Would recommend to anyone.

    Mark2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Swansea heads is a beautiful and quiet place with wonderful beaches around. Mary’s cottage is absolutely gorgeous at an amazing location surrounded by mesmerising views from the kitchen! We wanted a secluded place in Central Coast to spend some quality family time and it was just the perfect place we were looking for. The cottage is absolutely neat, tidy and comfortable for a family or friend’s getaway with all little things being taken care of. Mary kindly allowed us to check out a bit later as we requested. All in all a perfect holiday destination. We are really happy after this holiday!

  • We had an amazing time at Jessica's place. The Airbnb is very spacious and private, decorated with trinkets and stylish touches. Jessica is really easy to communicate with and went far beyond what we expected of her as a host. The back area with the pond and the trees is beautiful and a great space to hang out and relax. The smart TV with Netflix is also a great asset as it rained on a few occasions while we were visiting. It's very pet-friendly and our dog Zac had a great time with Jessica's son Oskar.

    Terry2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

    Simon2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jessica’s place was amazing. She had excellent communication and made check in super easy. The place was clean and suited are needs perfectly. The back yard was the highlight, it backs onto forest and here is an incredible outdoor fish pond. My boys loved feeding the fish each morning and jumping on the trampoline. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again.

    Your own piece of paradise just 2 hours from Sydney and 30 minutes from Newcastle. You can walk to Lake Macquarie in 5 minutes. Your studio is entirely self-contained so you can have a swim in the salt water pool then just sit back and relax with your book. You can explore the nearby Hunter Valley vineyards, Newcastle, bushwalks and the beauty of Lake Macquarie. A futon folds down to provide a flat double bed, 1.65m long. Well behaved dog ok by prior arrangement only. Please see pet rules below.
    Lake Macquarie is Australia’s largest salt water lake and there is so much to explore - either on the water or on shore or in the air! Parachuting, ziplining for the adventurous.
    Arcadia Vale is a pretty and quiet area on the shores of Lake MacQuarie with plenty of potential for bush walks, boating, swimming, biking, etc.

    Eris2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is in a quiet spot, very clean, spacious and right by the lake with great views. It has a small table and two chairs on the small verandah outside the cottage which is perfect for breakfast for two in the morning. The cottage does not have a barbecue but otherwise the kitchen has everything one might need for cooking. We enjoyed our long weekend stay very much and would recommend the place.

  • Fantastic location by the lake, modern accomodation, plenty of space, nice views, great facilities, very clean, would stay again.

    Paul2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lauren’s retreat is a beautiful, well renovated, spacious gem that opens out onto a large grassy area tucked away perfect in the corner of the bay. The views from the living area and front balcony are like something from a tourist brochure. It has the best of both worlds with the feeling of your own private lakefront area, but so conveniently close to everything you could want to never run out of things to see or do. We spent a week, but could have and would have loved to spend so much more. Absolutely everything was first class!! If you’re looking for a quiet escape, with all of the conveniences of home in a magnificent setting with endless things to do, we couldn’t recommend a better little getaway.

    Ben And Emma2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

  • The unit was clean, beds comfy, there’s a little clothes line to hang washing outside. The garden at the front was nice and created a little private nook to sit by the front door. There is no dining table however there are stools so food can be eaten at the kitchen bench. We cooked an omelette each morning with the eggs that Brook provided -which were delicious. The kitchen is well equipped and the unit as a whole had everything we needed. We are in the area from time to time so are hoping to stay again soon! Thanks Brook and Jaime!

    Tina2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a little gem! It looks brand new with top quality amenities, tidy, super clean, and stylishly minimalist, just the way we like! It had all that we needed for a “no frills” holiday. The special touches were the washer and drier, WiFi with Netflix tv, beach towels and chairs, and the eggs from their resident chooks. The biggest selling point is that it is literally around the corner from the beach as well as the playground. Our 9yo daughter said numerous times that she loved how she could walk to the beach and did not want to leave! Highly recommend! Brook was very kind and responded quickly to my messages, and she left us alone to enjoy the place! ☺️

  • If you're looking for a modern accomodation, this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for value for money, great location, spaciousness, cleanliness and thoughtful touches, then Wendy and Gordon's place will be just what you need. Located across from Lake Macquarie in a quiet cul-de-sac with a lovely view, we had easy access to the beautiful Blacksmith's beach (5 min drive), amenities and restaurants which was all we needed. We'll definitely be booking it again next year when we're up that way again.

  • The place was clean and comfortable with a nice lake view. Aircon in both bedrooms in addition to the one in the living room. It is easy to go for a walk to see pelicans, black swans etc. as the lake is just across the street. Met Wendy and she was a lovely, friendly person and also very helpful. There was plenty of information on what to do and see in the nearby areas.

    Yue2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for one night with my family and it was really enriching experience. The location is too good with beach just few meters away. Surrounding was quite and peaceful which was a plus if someone is looking to get away from hustle-bustle of the city. i would definitely recommend this place to everyone

    Addy2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and beautiful place perfect for 2 people. Anymore and it will be uncomfortable (but not impossible - I stayed as a group of 5 people!) . Accurate description of location being 5-10 minute walk to a beach) and a 10 -15 min drive to nearest local shops / groceries or other outdoor sites / scenes (e.g. catherine hill bay beach and pier). Ask Tong for recommendations!

    Hannah2019-11-23T00:00:00Z

    Bluebell Retreat is a purpose built contemporary holiday house designed by eminent Australian architect, Gabriel Poole set in expansive bushland with spectacular water views right on the shores of Lake Macquarie. Distinctively designed for leisure and comfort. Accommodates 1 to 3 couples or a family of 6 in 3 separate spaces. Fully equipped with designer furnishings, latest technologies and appliances, kitchenware, linen. Perfect destination for a short break, family escape or romantic getaway.
    Bluebell Retreat House Bluebell Retreat is a haven for nature enthusiasts, bushwalkers, beachcombers and general outdoor lovers. Surrounded by great surfing, beaches, fishing spots, walking trails, sailing and boating. It is the perfect destination for a short break, family escape or romantic getaway. Nestled in the stunning surrounds of Wallarah National Park on the shores of Lake Macquarie, Bluebell Retreat combines the wonder of the natural world with the comfort of the modern, featuring an eco award winning house set harmoniously within the vivid green landscape in the centre of the NSW coastline. Bluebell Retreat House is a purpose built contemporary holiday retreat where you can "just get away from it all". Our expansive bushland and spectacular views allow guests to truly unwind.
    What do you love about the area? Its like no other living environment that I have ever experience with such respect for nature and wellbeing. The trees, open space and the lake. The house has so much open park land around it with 270 degrees uninterrupted views that will never be built out. The closeness to the lake and the views across the water to the mountain range (Watagan Mountains) and to Pulbah Island. The ever-changing vistas that just makes you want to feel relaxed and calm. Murrays Beach offers lots of activities including: fishing, swimming, boating, sailing, walking, fitness and cycling trails, village green, residence only 25m pool complex, café restaurant, walking trail to the sea (Pinny Beach), picnicking, community events, and much more. It’s a naturally beautiful peaceful environment to enjoy life and to unwind. Its also close to the Sydney and Newcastle yet it feels so far away/removed from the urbanism of cities. I get the feeling Lake Macquarie offers holidays that hark back to simpler times – fishing, swimming, watching the sunset, surfing, having a glass of wine and looking at the lake. Is that the sort of holiday you think it offers? Definitely! I think you have picked up on the essence of the place. Suited to all ages from a weekend getaway to a memorable family holidays. So many natural activities to see or participate in. We have lots of repeat guests. Many have returned a number of times…………….5 to 20 times! Most say it was the most relaxing break or holiday they have had. I try to maintain Bluebell, so the wow factor never wanes. The high-quality standard and cleanliness is the same for each new guest and for each return stay guest. I enjoy pleasing guests and their nice feedback and return patronage keeps me going after 10 years. In your opinion, what’s one must see or do thing at Murray’s Beach or the wider Lake Macquarie region? That is a hard one! It really depends on what you are looking for or your interests. Some things I really enjoy and recommend: - sail on Lake Macquarie - early morning or late afternoon walk along any of the beaches (Dudley to Catherine Hill Bay) …………. never crowded! - an exhibition at Lake Macquarie Art Gallery followed by lunch - an early morning paddle in a kayak along the shores of Murrays Beach - walking from Murrays Beach on Lake Macquarie to Pinny Beach on the Pacific Ocean and having a picnic lunch seaside
  • We stayed at Bluebel for 3 nights for my partners 30th birthday and we had an amazing weekend. Upon checkin Robert met us to take us through the property and share some local knowledge. The property itself is spectacular, incredibly clean and comfortable fully equipped with everything you need. The kayaks are such a nice touch and we enjoyed paddling on the lake at sunset - so beautiful! Thanks Robert for your great hospitality, we will definitely be back!

    Sarah2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Robert was a great host and had thought of everything you may need. His place was very well kept, modern and clean. Would definitely recommend.

    Liz2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The property is beautiful, spacious and very well presented. Robert, the host, is generous and thoughtful and everything went smoothly, from pre-visit communication, to check-in, to follow-up. Robert even washed and mailed some clothing my daughter left behind! Highly recommended.

    Ngiare2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Robert’s place was perfect. It was exactly what we needed after big days at the beach. It was so peaceful.

    Rachelle2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Patrick2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second stay and we loved it just as much as the first time. The house is so beautifully looked after. Robert has thought of everything you could need. Generously provided a child’s bed and high chair also. Such a beautiful place in stunning and peaceful surrounds.

    Jennifer2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A superb house with a magnificent view of Lake Macquarie. Modern, very clean and quiet, this address is not to be missed!

    Fabien2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was the most perfect place for us as we were returning from a tiring experience. Location is amazing and peaceful. The beds are the most comfortable which for me is the top priority. All the amenities are top quality and Robert has taken great care in providing the best of everything. We will definitely be back sooner rather than later.
