Whisk yourself away in the luxuriously-appointed self contained accommodation, with privacy made just for two. You will have everything you need to enjoy simple pleasures with your partner or complete self-indulgence just for you.

At just over an hour from Sydney, and in close proximity to the Hunter Valley, Barrington Tops, Newcastle and Port Stephens, the opportunity to unwind at The Loft is too good to miss.

To find out more google "The Loft" at Kilaben Bay.

The Loft is the perfect location to access all the Hunter, Newcastle and Port Stephens has to offer...

The Loft has everything for a quiet weekend away or a week-long escape: lose yourself in a book, refresh with a dip in your private outdoor spa or walk out on the private jetty and slide into the cool waters of Lake Macquarie or try your hand at fishing off the jetty.

Take a walk around beautiful Lake Macquarie or play a game of tennis at The Loft private tennis court.

At the end of the day sit back enjoy the sunset sip on a well deserved drink. Turn on the BBQ to heat up for

your catch of the day, and unwind in the outdoor hot tub after, overlooking the lake.

For the cooler months, snuggle up indoor by the warmth of your fire.

With your batteries recharged investigate all the Hunter has to offer: award-winning golf courses in Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, internationally-acclaimed Hunter Valley wineries, and a feast of culinary options for dining locally in Toronto, Warners Bay or venture into Newcastle's famed dining strips.

Tour historic Newcastle for an intriguing insight into our region or go boating or whale watching for the day in beautiful Port Stephens.

For an adventurous spirit, take a hike on one of many walking trails at the Barrington Tops nature reserve, or for a more leisurely time, have a day in the sun, sand and surf at any one of our pristine beaches.

Lake Macquarie is the largest salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere and offers a multitude of fishing spots both on shore and out on the lake.

How to get here

Only 15 minutes off the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway at Kilaben Bay, near Toronto, and only 1 hour north of Sydney. Take the Toronto exit, and continue along this road for approximately 10 minutes to arrive at the main street of Toronto (The Boulevarde). Drive through the town and take a right at the end of The Boulevarde. Take the second right turn (into Jarret Street) and follow the road to Kilaben Park, which is facing the lake. Turn left into Kilaben Road. Head up the hill, and Number 72 is on your right. Drive down the long driveway and park behind our house next to the tennis court on your right.

Fassifern Train Station, a short drive(10min) from Toronto, for easy access from the Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne train lines. Connecting buses await at Fassifern Train Station to drive you to Toronto. Taxi rank in main street.

### NOTE... 3 night minimum on ALL Long Weekend bookings. Thank you Gina

Lovely Loft

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet spot right on the Lake. Lovely to wake up to such a serene and peaceful view. The hot tub was also a fabulous treat. Very clean, tidy and tastefully furnished. Thanks Gina for a lovely couple of days.

Simply perfect, best little break we've had yet!

  • 5 of 5

The loft is a simply gorgeous, quiet, secluded place for a romantic getaway. We went there after being burnt out from concurrent full time work & study. As soon as we got there, Gina's amazing hospitality was evident. I had never stayed outside of corporate accommodation before, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Gina treated us better than what we've been treated in 5 star hotels. It was in the details. Thank you so much for everything. The view is gorgeous (your own jetty). The outdoor spa is just perfect. Location in Kilaben Bay is great, you're close to anywhere. We went to Treetops on our way home. Thank you Gina, you are amazing. We want to go back as soon as we have a weekend off again.

Best getaway ever

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at The Loft. Everything was very clean and new. The mattress is comfortable; the kitchen has everything you need; the fireplace works perfectly; the jacuzzi is hot and it has a breathtaking view of the lake; and the most important, the hosts are amazing. 10/10

We'll Be Back

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou Gina for facilitating a perfect weekend. Your Loft is the most amazing, romantic and relaxing weekend getaway. Graeme and I would like to thankyou for your hospitality and those welcoming little touches that you provided. We arrived to bubbles, chockies and fruit, as well as the fridge being stocked with brekkie supplies for our stay. Relaxing on the deck in the jacuzzi with a view of beautiful Lake Macquarie was so peaceful. Gina, we now think of The Loft as our little 'home away from home' too and am looking forward to our return. Thankyou again Gina

Arrived to a perfectly clean and well organised place. The view was breath taking. Gina was absolutely beautiful and welcomed us upon arrival with a lovely bottle of champagne with chocolate and strawberries. Will definitely come back.

Romantic escape

  • 5 of 5

The Loft is a studio apartment in a beautiful tranquil setting at the lake front. It has a lovely lay out and is beautifully decorated. The Loft is a separate building not far from the owners main house but very private. The owners are more than happy to help or leave you be. There fridge was stocked with items for a cooked breaky and I received a bottle of champagne with chocolates and strawberries on arrival. Very lovely touches. I loved listening to the sound of the Lake and fully enjoyed relaxing times in the big outdoor spa. Located short drive from shops and restaurants with plenty of options around. Perfect couples retreat!
