Overview

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.

Location

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. The house location is perfect as a base to explore some of the other highlights provided by Australia’s largest salt water lake.

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.

EXCELLENT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

We had a two nights stay at this place and it was just awesome!! Clean and comfortable condition, nice neighbors and lots fish just in the backyard. It's close to Port Stephens and we went there for camels rides & sand boarding at day time and had hotpot in the back deck at night. Took many nice pictures of the sun rise & set. We 10 people all had a wonderful holiday here and we cannot recommend more of it to our friends.
