Welcome to THE PLACE, a house of peace, love and laughter!
Located by the shores of Lake Macquarie, THE PLACE is a family home that has everything you need for your next family holiday or lakeside fishing adventure.
Nestled amongst the palms trees and tropical garden on the shores of beautiful Lake Macquarie this is the perfect location to spend a few days or weeks sailing, skiing, swimming, paddling, boating and fishing.
The Place is not just an ideal summer house, it's a fantastic base with plenty to do around the area from a private Hunter Valley mini bus trip from your door to exploring the chic up and coming areas of Newcastle, stroll along Darby Street for a spot of lunch or explore nearby Caves Beach & Catherine Hill Bay. Emerse yourself in a hearty Italian feast in neighbouring Summerland Point or simply unwind and enjoy an unplugged evening in with your family.
When you want a rest from playing in and on the biggest salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere, you could play a game of cricket or footy on the waterfront reserve, enjoy the gardens and pool in this fully fenced property, relax with the kids at Lioness Park which is a short walk across the bridge, or hang out at the house and enjoy many of the extensive features included as outlined below.

Clean and comfortable. Just like going home!
My husband and I stayed at “The Place” in Gwendolyn with my daughter’s family of 2 adults and 2 children last September.
When we pulled up the first impression was quaint and quirky and we were keen to see inside.
The inside was great! Very clean and they had everything we needed for a short stay.
The kids loved the pool and the access to the lake was very safe and they could go exploring on their own.
There was a lot to do around the area, walking around the lake and fishing from the jetty. We walked to the local club for a meal and so the car didn't move for the 3 days.
We plan to venture out in the area next time we stay there. Definitely will go back again.
Wonderful vacation home
The Place was a perfect choice for our family holiday. The property was exactly as described with great amenities and plenty of space for everyone. A booklet found in the kitchen was very helpful regarding local events and restaurants. The location is two minutes walk to the lake and park. Gwandalan is a lovely village with shops and a club within walking distance. We had a relaxing fun break and would definitely book again. The whole family loved it!
Great time had by all at The Place, Gwandalan
Always have a great time with family and friends when we stay at Lake Macquarie. Plenty to do and perfect spot to get away from electronic devices and show the kids how much more fun they can have away from modern technology! House is clean, well-maintained and has everything you need so you can just walk in & relax. There are great facilities within walking distance too so can buy what you need when you get there. The retro arcade machine was a fantastic bonus! Hubby and the kids caught a feast in the lake. Blue swimmer crabs and squid. Yum! Ranee was lovely to deal with and extremely helpful. Thanks for hosting us. House was even better in situ. We will be back.
Clean fresh spacious and very relaxing for a holiday, kids loved the pool and playroom.
The Place had everything our extended family needed. Close to cafes and dinning out. The location was stunning and great for walking the dog, kids and grandparents. Wish we could have stayed longer, would book The Place again, thanks Tanya Cross for making our stay hassle free. xx
