Overview

About the property

The perfect venue for a casual family holiday, or a budget stopover as you explore the spectacular NSW Mid North Coast. Sail, paddleboard, surf, kayak, swim, fish or just laze on the sun-lounge and listen to the birds in this tranquil waterfront setting.

Bongo's can accommodate up to 5 people and is a fully self-contained two bedroom villa set on 1.4 hectares of park-like grounds. The open plan living area with well equipped kitchen leads out to the sunny terrace. The locals like to gather on the lakes edge for a drink to watch the sky change colours at sun set. Cook some meat from the local butcher on the barbecue, put together a salad and dinner is ready.

DVDs, CDs, books and games are all provided for relaxing on the comfy lounge, whatever the weather.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has three single beds, including a bunk bed.

A laundry is available on-site.

Linen and towels are not provided.

Kids love playing in the warm, shallow water of the lake right in front of Bongo's. Walk or paddle across the lake to Sandbar ocean beach or fish from the shore. Explore the lake and its islands by kayak, catamaran or dinghy, all available for hire from the famous Frothy Coffee Boatshed, just a 10 minute walk. If you have your own boat, it can be launched from the small boat ramp on our beach and left there for the duration of your stay (at your own risk of course). Use the on-site tennis court or kick a ball on the extensive lawns in front of Bongo's. .

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

SMITHS LAKE is the smallest of the Great Lakes and is popular for kayaks, paddleboards, fishing and sailing.

SMITHS LAKE is a beautiful little village set amongst rainforest. A walk to the top of the hill finds a small shopping centre with café, takeaway, supermarket, bakery and bottle shop. If the kids aren't already exhausted from swimming all day there is a children's playground on the lake's edge and a skate park near the Bowling Club to keep them busy. The Pacific Palms Bowling Club is open for lunch and dinner every day.

SANDBAR is just a few minutes drive and offers 4wd beach access (permit required), beach fishing and a 9 hole golf course, complete with resident kangaroos. CELLITOS BEACH is found at the end of a breathtaking boardwalk through sub-tropical rainforest. Enjoy the pristine surf beach or explore the extensive rock pools.

ELIZABETH, SHELLY, BOOMERANG and BLUEYS BEACH are all only a 5 minute drive. Elizabeth Beach is a patrolled beach great for families, while Boomerang and Bluey's are known for their surf.

WALLIS LAKE is another option for boating enthusiasts or for just watching the sunset over the lake with a glass of your favourite tipple.

SEAL ROCKS is an iconic surfing village that is only a 20 minute drive from Bongo's. Walk up to Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse to enjoy the magnificent view and find out a little of the area's history.

Lovely propert, but needs new cutlery & crockery

  • 4 of 5

The position of the bungalow was magical, right opposite Smith's Lake & just 400 metres to the water. Safe to swim in & lay on a floaty. The bungalow lovely, but needed better crockery & cutlery as current stuff old & some rusty, also furniture needs to be moved to clean under. Lovely, restful & peaceful......
