About the property

Welcome to the Amaroo Lakeside Retreat, a hilltop house with panoramic views of Lake Macquarie

The Space

This splendid split level house is ultra modern with an open plan living, air conditioned living area as well as ceiling fans through the house. The main bedroom has its own ensuite with a luxury spa. The bedroom up the stairs has an air condition also to keep you cool in the summer days. There is a fully functional kitchen, laundry with washing machine and dryer as well as a modern common bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. There is free street side parking. Guests may use the shared driveway to unload their vehicles on the property in front of the garage. There is a jetty 2mins drive from the house.

Guest Access

While staying at the property you have full access to the house, balcony and backyard. You will be given an access code to open the keybox where you will have a set of keys to enter the property. The keys will open all the doors in the house. Please ensure all windows are closed and doors are locked when you are out. Please specify at the time of booking if you need an extended checkout.

The Neighbourhood

Rathmines is a quiet waterfront suburb and offers great walking tracks, fishing spots and public boat access ramps. The nearest shops are situated 3 minutes drive from the property. There is a lovely cafe, IGA, bottle shop and essential needs. The next main town centre is Toronto which has all major shops, restaurants and cafes.

Our favourite swimming spot is at Dobell Park, at the town centre of Wangi Wangi, 6km from the property. It is a small sandy beach with BBQ facilities, undercover seatings area and playground and a beautiful restaurant across the road.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We loved out stay. In a really nice area and fantastic views. Great house, my kids loved the extra loft in their bedroom. Disappointed with the BBQ, so tiny you can't cook for a family on it. Wifi didn't work for our stay. House was very clean and tidy. Would recommend.
