About Michael Jones

We live in Sydney, and after a family holiday to Smiths Lake in 2005, we fell in love with the area and found ourselves looking in the real estate agent windows. We ended up buying a lovely north facing lakefront block of land, and in early 2007 we enjoyed our first stay in the house we had designed and built by great local people.

We enjoy being able to have friends stay at the house, and to share it with other people. We only wish we had more time to visit it more often ourselves!

Michael Jones purchased this house in 2007

Why Michael Jones chose Smiths Lake

We had the house built to our needs, but also with a view to other people staying in it. The layout with living areas, bedrooms, bathrooms and decks on both levels works really well for two families to stay together.

This part of the lake is on a gorgeous bay, with a due north aspect, which is unusual for Smiths Lake. It’s sheltered from the southerly winds, is very quiet. Guests often rave about the kitchen, it’s bigger than most homes, and works really well for the keen cook.

The two kayaks are a great way to explore the lake, we often paddle around to Frothy Coffee for something to eat or drink, about a 20 minute paddle.

Fantastic house for 2 families

Warrawee is a fantastic house for 2 families and has the best kitchen we have ever experienced at a holiday house.The beds are very comfortable and the deck allows you to watch the sun set. The kayaks are brilliant. We will be back!

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was huge and gave our 2 families tons of room. Kids loved the kayaks and us adults enjoyed the afternoon relax on the huge deck.

Thanks again

Second trip back - will do a third

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing with the best kitchen and lounge area for all to entertain and enjoy the environment at the same time. The house has been kitted out with everything you could think of to make your stay comfortable and the cleanliness is second to none. Sleep - amazing! Both due to location and quality of beds. If you want a real break some time out from the rat race and just quality time together then this is the place to do it.

Lovely large house!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed Jan 2016. We had 4 days of heavy rain to start our summer holidays, but found the house large enough to accommodate our extended family with plenty of space for the kids to spread out and play. The water is 50m out the back, but not easy for very young kids to access (steep) and rocky beach. Otherwise, lovely well-stocked kitchen, good sized bathrooms, and bright bedrooms. Well ventilated, so ceiling fans more than adequate without need for aircon. Also, lovely outlook onto water and bushland.
