About the property

Imagine having your own beautiful weekender, just 90 minutes from Sydney, with absolute water frontage, and a private jetty!

Delightful property.

  • 5 of 5

Our party guests stayed here recently. We have stayed here ourselves a couple of times and it never disappoints. Lovely cottage with a gorgeous view of the lake. See the yachts racing by and the bird life up close.

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for a relaxing holiday: comfortable accommodation in a beautiful location on the water's edge, and an easy drive from Sydney.

Six of us - two adults and four kids (9 - 16) spent 5 days here and had a great time. The cottage is larger inside than it looks - there was adequate room for us all. The best thing was being right on the lake: a lovely view, and a private jetty. We brought a sailing dinghy and went out on the water every day. We'd definitely come again!

A Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend relaxing and watching the world go buy. Even on a winters day Sunshine Cottage is still a great weekend escape. The cottage has all you need for a restful break. The lake at your door and local shops only 5mins away once you arrive there is no need to leave till check out time. A great way to unwind. Will come back again.

Cheers Linda

Lovely Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely weekend at Sunshine Cottage. The cottage is positioned to take in the stunning north east views of Lake Macquarie. The property is 1 minute from the boat ramp with ample vehicle and trailer parking. The private jetty has a protective bumper around it. We tied up with a couple of fenders and the boat was secured without a problem.
