Watersedge on Lake Macquarie

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 28 nights


About the property

An absolute waterfront cottage on a quiet cul de sac next to an idyllic reserve with breathtaking views. A perfect spot for a weekend away. Ideal for couples.

The house sits right on the watersedge beside a leafy, picturesque reserve. It’s a split level 2 bedroom house.

The master bedroom is a loft style bedroom on the 2nd floor of the split level home and has water views with queen bed with built in wardrobes as well a walk in wardrobe. It has an ensuite with shower.

The second bedroom is the size of two bedrooms and sits on the 1st level of the split level home. It has a queen size bed.

The second bathroom is basic but very functional with a shower and also contains washing machine.

The kitchen has a fridge, oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher. Pantry essentials are also provided such as coffee and tea.

There are two separate living areas. The main lounge room has a TV (free to air only). There are doors opening onto outdoor deck overlooking water with outdoor table. The second lounge room is on the same floor as the second bedroom and overlooks the water.

There is wifi and a playstation 3 that has a random selection of kids movies on it and some games.

There is a gas BBQ in the boathouse which can be wheeled outside in front of the boathouse for those who love to BBQ by the waters edge.

Guests have access to entire house except for garage. Parking is available past the garage in front of the house or beside the garage. If you have a trailer it's best to park it on the street as it would be difficult to turn around.

There are three sets of stairs in this split level home. Those with mobility issues or small toddlers may want to take into consideration prior to booking.

Please note that the jetty in front of the house belongs to our neighbours. However, there is a public boat launch and small playground less than 500m away.

Paddleboards (one adult and one junior paddleboard) are available.

Lake Macquarie is just over an hour's drive north of Sydney. The area offers excellent boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, bushwalking & picnicking, and is just 40 minutes away from the Hunter Valley wineries, and 30 minutes Newcastle.

We are close to many sailing clubs (Toronto, Wangi and Sunshine). We are minutes away from the Toronto Private Hospital.

We are at the end of a quiet cul de sac next to a reserve. The nearest town is Toronto which is only a few minutes drive away which has an Aldi, Coles or Woolworths, café and restaurants.

As indicated in the details section of this listing the house doesn't have air conditioning. To keep cool on those hot days there are two ceiling fans in lounge area and 3 portable tower fans which can be moved to the desired area. Please consider the lack of air conditioning before booking in the summer or winter months as some people are more affected by the heat and cold than others.

Sorry, no pets please.

Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 12pm. We have a strict no party policy. Most people do but we ask that if you use the oven/BBQ that you leave it in a similar state as you found it.

Lovely retreat in a magical location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous short break at Watersedge - such a peaceful spot with a reserve on one side, absolute waterfront, and the neighbouring houses set back. Like the previous reviews, we also enjoyed those morning coffees on the deck watching the waterbirds fish, and evenings watching the sunset with a drink in hand. The house is perfect and very well equipped. Three days there felt like a much longer break...thanks again for opening up your home Sheryl! We're already planning our next visit.

We had a very enjoyable stay in this house. It was clean and we had everything we needed.... it felt like home. We loved the morning coffees on the balcony......the was very peaceful. The kids loved it so much, they want to come back again soon. The communication with the owners was excellent. Thank you!

If you are looking for a beautiful house, with every comfort, 3 metres away from the water with 180 degree views, this is the place for you.

It has everything you could possibly want, is pristine clean and the bed is to die for - we had such peaceful sleeps here. We loved waking up in the morning and gazing out on the expanse of water and if you are fisherman there's bream and flathead to be caught from the jetty.

We had a wonderful week sitting on the veranda sipping a good red and watching the sunsets, and exploring the region.

Would we go back? In a heartbeat!

A stunning property right by the lakeside, you couldn't have asked for a better view. So relaxing to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and take in the beautiful scenery. Thanks for an amazing stay, we hope to visit again soon! :)
