About the property

Sandpiper offers lake side villa style units on the shore line of beautiful Smiths Lake. These 2 bedroom units sleep 4 to 6 people, have private patios, outdoor cooking facilities, generously appointed modern kitchens and open planned eating and a living areas with all the creature comforts of home. Also available are lake side two story 3 bed room townhouses that sleep 6 to 8 people comfortably.

Children play and get to know each other at Sandpiper, as there is an extensive grassy area by the safe and shallow lake shore. A boat ramp offers easy access to the water and the lake is especially popular among sailboarders, canoeist and paddle boarders alike. A tennis court is available free of charge. There are barbecues and tables nestled amongst the trees, right by the lake shore. Guests are asked to bring their own sheets, towels, toiletries and food, however, the on site managers, Don and Emmy, are on hand to make your stay as comfortable as possible. As resident managers, they have extensive local knowledge and are happy to lend a hand with friendly advice. In contrast to absentee landlords, they're always on hand to make your stay that much more, enjoyable and fun.

Laundry facilities are available within the complex. There are shops a few minutes from Sandpiper, restaurants within a short drive, and all the amenities and attractions of Forster/Tuncurry less than half an hour away. At Sandpiper concession rates apply out of School Holidays, with bargain packages through the calmer, cooler months. Nothing compares!

Affordable accommodation a stones throw from a pristine lake. Views from your unit across water and dunes  to the ocean. The sound of surf in the distance to lull you to sleep. Sunrise through the paperbark trees, with pelicans gliding by. Days full of outdoor adventure that you won't forget.

Lovely, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location beside the lake and in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. The surrounding bush and national park made it feel as if we were a million miles away, yet everything we needed, cafes, shops, beaches and bushwalks were just moments away. Would happily stay there again.

A beautiful place. We stayed for 2 weeks and it was fabulous. Great relaxing get away & loved the fishing in the lake and off the beach, over at Sandbar. The lake and surrounding bushland is just sublime. We stayed in unit 7 which was great. Very comfortable with all you need. The managers were lovely.
