About the property

Note: Some of the photographs show a Jetty into the water. Please be aware that the Jetty belongs to an adjacent property 3 houses down and is therefore NOT available for usage by Guests.


Lakeside@BonnellsBay is a large waterfront reserve property situated at Bonnells Bay, overlooking the waters of Lake Macquarie, just over an hour's drive north of Sydney. This 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom brick property features unimpeded panoramic water views from the backyard, and these great views are also accessible from the living areas within the house. Combine this with its sheer size, age (20 years old brick home), condition and facilities that this property offers ===> an inspection a must for this property. Potential guests are more than welcome to have a look at the property prior to making a booking.

The location is ideal as a home away from home, so close to all the everyday amenities and yet only a stone’s throw away from a wonderfully calm and protected part of Lake Macquarie.

Perfect stay

A great location with a perfect view, room for more than enough of us, and incredibly accommodating owners who were more than helpful when it came to any questions we had. Kayaks available for use and all the necessary utensils and equipment for a perfect, relaxing weekend!

Wonderful house for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults and three children had a wonderful week-long holiday at Lakeside@BonnellsBay. The view is lovely, and the house is large, very clean and wonderfully equipped. The large lawn area saw plenty of cricket and kite flying, and we also made good use of the kayaks. The owner is very helpful, and quick to respond. We would definitely recommend this property, and hope to visit again soon.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 staying for a boys weekend away. The property has plenty of room and living areas, with a large area of grass out the back next to the lake. The dinghy and kayaks were a great addition. Shopping centre within walking distance that had a pub, supermarket and smaller shops.

Couldn't recommend this property more, the property manager communicated well throughout our trip to make sure all our concerns were taken care of.

The perfect spot !!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the ideal place to stay for a few days or even longer, you need look no further. With family and friends (10 of us) we spent two perfect days at this well maintained, spotlessly clean, lakeside house. The large, comfortably furnished rooms were complemented by the excellent facilities. There was even a canoe and rowboat for our use. Highly recommended. We shall definitely be coming back.
