We enjoyed our time at Serenity by the Lake, we were two family’s there was enough space for all of us. The kids love having their own tv room, close to shops and boat ramp. Thank you Margaret and Allan

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Wollongong as a party of five adults and a 17 month old and the house was perfect for us. Large enough that we didn't get in each other's way, beautifully presented and fully equipped for a home away from home in a quiet residential area. The owners have thought of everything and we had a very pleasant stay.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on the weekend and this property exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for our party of 4 adults and 4 children. We loved that there was 2 living spaces so the kids could have their own room and TV and the adults theirs :) The house was so clan, there was plenty of room to run around, awesome park across the road for the kids, beautiful warm spa, 10 mins from Wollongong town centre, the list goes on! We will definitely be back.
