Your room is in one of the largest architecturally designed homes in Kilaben Bay, set privately overlooking Lake Macquarie. The entrance to our home has a beautiful 6m high astrium & large works of art. There is plenty of street parking in the safe dead end street. Enjoy a game of table tennis downstairs or a stroll along the water's edge. If you book in Friday it must be for 2 nights until Sunday all other nights of the week can be single night bookings.
The house is 600m2 so there is plenty of space to do whatever you like. Sit on the balcony overlooking the lake. I have added all the little extras to make this a 5 star private room experience. Your bed is a pillow topped mattress with indulgent pillows. You have the use of the full kitchen and house facilities too. Play table tennis downstairs until 8pm and not before 9am. The peaceful setting of this home will make you want to return. Enjoy waking to the birds... Wander to Lake Macquarie's edge at the other end of the street. This end is private property. DO NOT walk around the edge of the lake here it is very steep anyway!Walk to the other end of the street where you can walk the edge of the lake to the right for a long way. It is a beautiful walk. Take a swim or a sun bath. This is Australia at its best. Explore the boutique shops, the home wares and the coffee shops in Toronto. Lake Macquarie and Toronto are too good to be missed.
Toronto NSW is a hidden gem. This quaint town on the edge of Lake Macquarie is a must see. Perfectly placed to explore the Hunter vineyards, Newcastle and even The Entrance and Port Stephens. This stay should be more than one night as there is so much here to see and do. Toronto offers great restaurants, cafes, boutique clothes and homewares... The best quality seafood is available on the same street as the house - Shane's seafood. This shop supplies all the restaurants - so you can indulge in prawns, oysters, sashimi ... fish, crabs, lobsters, bugs. Toronto is the quaintest town situated on the edge of the Lake. It boasts several fabulous restaurants with the choice of Thai, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Italian, Noodle Bar, many overlooking the Lake.

On day one the deck chair I was sat in broke (nothing to do with the quality of the chair just one of those things) and they went and replaced it immediately. The space has been really well done and has everything you need (aircon was a welcome treat!). Thanks again for a lovely, relaxing stay.

    Your own piece of paradise just 2 hours from Sydney and 30 minutes from Newcastle. You can walk to Lake Macquarie in 5 minutes. Your studio is entirely self-contained so you can have a swim in the salt water pool then just sit back and relax with your book. You can explore the nearby Hunter Valley vineyards, Newcastle, bushwalks and the beauty of Lake Macquarie. A futon folds down to provide a flat double bed, 1.65m long. Well behaved dog ok by prior arrangement only. Please see pet rules below.
    Lake Macquarie is Australia’s largest salt water lake and there is so much to explore - either on the water or on shore or in the air! Parachuting, ziplining for the adventurous.
    Arcadia Vale is a pretty and quiet area on the shores of Lake MacQuarie with plenty of potential for bush walks, boating, swimming, biking, etc.
  • Kelly's guest house is the cutest little home away from home! A perfect base to enjoy exploring Lake Macquarie and all it has to offer. Located poolside, extremely private, and lovingly decorated with everything you could need for a wonderful short break, whilst being fantastic value for money. We experienced outstanding hospitality. Kelly is so friendly, welcoming, and helpful, a truly gracious host. We look forward to our next weekend staying in Kelly's guest house at Arcadia Vale!

  • Great location around beautiful Lake Macquarie. I had the salt water pool all to myself which was perfect and it was so lovely that I could bring the dog as well. The pool cottage was stylish and very clean with thoughtful touches like tea/coffee and even some sweet treats in the fridge and helpful information about the area provided. A great place for a mini break.

Michael and Trudy are fantastic hosts; quick communication, friendly and accommodating, we were a last minute booking and Michael welcomed us on arrival and showed us around the stylish suite. Super comfortable and clean, very peaceful and relaxing space, super comfy bed, pillows and linen, loved relaxing in the massive bath. Nice, private little balcony to enjoy. Really appreciated the supplied cereals, milk, tea, coffee, bread, spreads and treats. Well stocked suite, everything has been thought of including folder with local restaurants and activities and handy list of local doctor, hospital and pharmacy. It was all very easy. Ultimately, we wanted a stylish space that was peaceful to relax and enjoy our anniversary and our stay was perfect. We didn’t want to leave. Loved it, highly recommend and can’t wait to return!

  • The unit was clean, beds comfy, there’s a little clothes line to hang washing outside. The garden at the front was nice and created a little private nook to sit by the front door. There is no dining table however there are stools so food can be eaten at the kitchen bench. We cooked an omelette each morning with the eggs that Brook provided -which were delicious. The kitchen is well equipped and the unit as a whole had everything we needed. We are in the area from time to time so are hoping to stay again soon! Thanks Brook and Jaime!

    Stephanie2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • This place is a little gem! It looks brand new with top quality amenities, tidy, super clean, and stylishly minimalist, just the way we like! It had all that we needed for a “no frills” holiday. The special touches were the washer and drier, WiFi with Netflix tv, beach towels and chairs, and the eggs from their resident chooks. The biggest selling point is that it is literally around the corner from the beach as well as the playground. Our 9yo daughter said numerous times that she loved how she could walk to the beach and did not want to leave! Highly recommend! Brook was very kind and responded quickly to my messages, and she left us alone to enjoy the place! ☺️

  • The attention to detail in Richard and Nerida's place is incomparable! I cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation. The location, the cleanliness and their local knowledge made this stay fantastic!

    Drew2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nerida and Richards place is lovely. Really spacious with full kitchen, dining table, good bed and everything else you could need for your stay. You have use of a lovely outdoor area as well. We were close to excellent restaurants and lots of things to do and see around the lake. Nerida and Richard are charming, friendly hosts who gave us lots of tips and then left us to enjoy the private space. In addition it is one of the cleanest Air Bnbs we have stayed in. You will not be disappointed especially if you want to stay several days in the area and take advantage of the kitchen and laundry facilities. Highly recommended.

    Glenda & Roger2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Nerida were the perfect hosts who warmly welcomed us, showed the key points of their studio and then left us undisturbed for our 4 day stay. They live above the studio but we had our own entrance and outside area so it felt very private. Lakeside and small shopping area were within a few minutes walk - and the walk through Green Point Reserve to Belmont is recommended. The studio was spacious, spotless and stylish and most importantly cool on some rather hot summer days. Can thoroughly recommend.

  • Richard and Nerida’s place exceeded our expectation. The place is sparkling clean, they are quick to response to all our queries and the place is just walking distance to the lake where we went fishing. We’ll definitely come back.

    Darryl2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Nerida were very warm and friendly. Greeted us on our arrival, showed us around, explained how everything worked and suggested places of interest. They were just upstairs if we needed anything and left us to our privacy. There place was spotless and had everything you needed to be cosy and comfortable. We loved it and would stay again.

    Lakeview large studio on the waterfront of the largest lake in the southern hemisphere. Perfect for a couple through to a group of five. Your area has your own lounge, dining table and bathroom, netfix on your own TV. Indulgence by Lake Macquarie near Newcastle. Often check in is available much earlier. Enjoy a game of table tennis. If you book in Friday it must be for 2 nights until Sunday all other nights of the week can be single night bookings.
    The house is 600m2 so there is plenty of space to do whatever you like. Sit on the balcony overlooking the lake. I have added all the little extras to make this a 5 star private room experience. Your bed is a pillow topped mattress with indulgent pillows. You have the use of the full kitchen and house facilities too. Play table tennis downstairs until 8pm and not before 9am. The peaceful setting of this home will make you want to return. Enjoy waking to the birds... Wander to Lake Macquarie's edge at the other end of the street. This end is private property. DO NOT walk around the edge of the lake here it is very steep anyway!Walk to the other end of the street where you can walk the edge of the lake to the right for a long way. It is a beautiful walk. Take a swim or a sun bath. This is Australia at its best. Explore the boutique shops, the home wares and the coffee shops in Toronto. Lake Macquarie and Toronto are too good to be missed.
    Toronto NSW is a hidden gem. This quaint town on the edge of Lake Macquarie is a must see. Perfectly placed to explore the Hunter vineyards, Newcastle and even The Entrance and Port Stephens. This stay should be more than one night as there is so much here to see and do. Toronto offers great restaurants, cafes, boutique clothes and homewares... The best quality seafood is available on the same street as the house. This shop supplies all the restaurants - so you can indulge in prawns, oysters, sashimi ... fish, crabs, lobsters, bugs.Toronto is the quaintest town situated on the edge of the Lake. It boasts several fabulous restaurants with the choice of Thai, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Italian, Noodle Bar, many overlooking the Lake.
  • Our 3rd visit and another fantastic stay! Stunning home, stylishly furnished, beautiful location, great for relaxing in peace and comfort. Lovely hosts who really care about their guests’ experience. The self-contained Lakeview Luxury room is perfect for families wanting their own space and privacy, it was great to have our own lounge, tv, dining suite and kitchenette. The main bathroom with spa is available for use but it was so convenient also having a bathroom on the lower level near our room. There is a large comfy lounge overlooking the outdoor deck and we enjoyed many games of table tennis with our son who loves this place as much as us! Beds are super comfy and house is well-organised and clean. Door from our living space leads directly onto the balcony, the fresh air into the room was wonderful and I completely blissed out, curled up on the balcony chair with a blanket and book overlooking the lake. Amazing value for money. Of course we didn’t want to leave again this time and are already working out when we can return for a 4th time! Thanks Vanessa and Gus!

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    My home is located in a beautiful location very close to the water at Macquarie Lake. It is a short stroll along the waters pathway to the CBD. It is a quiet and beautiful location suitable for a holiday or short break. I work away and it may be possible at times to have the entire home to yourself.
    Townhouse located in a fantastic holiday destination
    Warm and friendly neighbours and great location
  • The location and quietness were perfect for me, and walking distance to the Toronto Amateur Sailing Club (where I won our 3-day regatta and am now the national champion in my dinghy class RS100 for a year). Michelle had the place spotless and everything works faultlessly. Thanks Mi.

    Duncan2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mi is a considerate and caring host. Her townhouse is modern, spotlessly clean, and in a very quiet location. The bed is very comfortable. Mi was in constant communication to ensure I arrived safely. We spent a most pleasant evening together. The breakfast she prepared was lovely. A very nice stay.

  • Michelle's place was exceptional - clean, tidy, stylish, quiet and convenient location close to the local shops. The kitchen and bathroom are both spacious. The bed is comfy and Michelle has provided plenty of blankets for the cold weather. Michelle is an outgoing, thoughtful host who loves a good chat but at the same time provided me with the privacy I needed at times (when I needed to study). I enjoyed our open communications which really helped with my experience staying with her. Would definitely recommend her and her fantastic place to anyone!

    Suzie2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was clean and well kept. Mi Sik was very generous and hospitable, communicating promptly from the very start of the transaction. Meeting her in person was a delightful bonus!

    Nirvana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Jessica's place. The Airbnb is very spacious and private, decorated with trinkets and stylish touches. Jessica is really easy to communicate with and went far beyond what we expected of her as a host. The back area with the pond and the trees is beautiful and a great space to hang out and relax. The smart TV with Netflix is also a great asset as it rained on a few occasions while we were visiting. It's very pet-friendly and our dog Zac had a great time with Jessica's son Oskar.

    Terry2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very convenient... Plus surrounded by heaps of trees... Love that!

    Simon2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jessica’s place was amazing. She had excellent communication and made check in super easy. The place was clean and suited are needs perfectly. The back yard was the highlight, it backs onto forest and here is an incredible outdoor fish pond. My boys loved feeding the fish each morning and jumping on the trampoline. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again.

    Beth2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The outdoor are is so tranquil and beautiful, it's close to everything, overall a very relaxing stay.

Pam abs John we’re not only super hosts who made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived, they welcomed our little dog into their fur baby family. Pam and John informed us of all the local attractions and surrounding beaches. Pam was a great conversationalist and we debriefed on our favorite shows! Best of all, Pam delights in serving breakfast on the top balcony overlooking the lake. Waffles, strawberry compote, cream, tea and juice - all served with a gracious smile in beautiful surroundings.

    Our charming studio is only 3 meters from the lapping waters edge of Lake Macquarie. Just relax and watch the yachts sail by, magnificent views. It's quite romantic to sit in the moonlight and feel the lake breeze in the evening. Through day you might like to try your luck at a spot of fishing from our jetty or enjoy a stroll down the main street looking through the boutique shops of Toronto 2 minutes away. A row of gourmet cafe/restaurants that face the lake.
    Lily's on the lake, is a beautiful studio, completely private from other residents, and has parking adjacent to the studio. It also has its own private court yard with a webber BBQ.

The accommodation was well appointed comfortable and clean. The breakfast supplied was an appreciated bonus (home made muesli was a hit) and the video library was well utilised. Steve was an amazing host who bent over backwards to make sure we were well catered for knowing we had a big weekend ahead of us.

    Zachary2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t speak highly enough of Churchill’s BnB. The accommodation is set in a beautiful garden area and is nice and secluded. Swansea itself is a quite little town, but there are plenty of restaurant options nearby and there was plenty to see and do there for a couple just looking for a break! We made good use of the dive shop who were extremely friendly and knowledgable, and for those who are interested the dive under Swansea bridge was a great experience, teeming with sea life!. The accommodation itself was excellent, with an extremely comfortable bed and the bathroom is exceptional. What really made the experience was our host, Kate was so brilliant in communicating with us during the terrible bushfires that effected the NSW area during our stay, and was on hand throughout our to assist us. She could not do enough for us and it was greatly appreciated. The special touches such as the breakfast options on offer and the attentiveness of our host only added to the quality of the accommodation. I would encourage any travellers looking for a good, comfortable space and a little peace and quiet to book Churchills. We will certainly be returning on our next trip down under!

    Matthew2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in this cosy garden flat. The garden is super cute and the space was really clean and had plenty of thoughtful amenities. The spa inside is awesome and the bed was comfy. It’s also located a minute’s walk away from the lake and a short stroll to the local shops. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

    David2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • I am so glad I chose to stay at this clean, comfortable very peaceful getaway. The bed was so comfortable I just loved it. There were lots of extras in the fridge. Kate catered for my special milk and bread and I ordered bacon tomato, mushrooms and egg for breakfast which was delivered with a smile. Everything was fresh and lovely. I will definately be recommending this treasure of a place. Dee

Although small, it has an IGA, chemist, bakery, butcher, bottle shop, 3 coffee shops, small art gallery, pub, 2 restaurants and two clubs. The pretty lakeside town of Toronto is 12 mins drive north and has the larger supermarkets, restaurants, boutiques and cafes. Wangi Wangi (pronounced Wongee) is located on the point you will see directly to the right of Watersedge jetty. Wangi boasts a wide range of shorelines including rocky headlands, bluffs, rock platforms, and coastal lagoons. Picturesque Wangi provides a peaceful lifestyle against a natural backdrop with surrounding landscapes offering spectacular views, bushwalking, picnicking, camping and abseiling in the Watagan Mountains. The Watagan Mountains incorporates 13 forests, and numerous lookouts and magnificent waterfalls. Lake Macquarie is surrounded by beautiful bays, beaches, mountains, and the ocean. It is located under 2 hours north of Sydney CBD, 40 minutes south of Newcastle, and 40 minutes from Hunter Valley Wine Country, Australia's premium wine district. There are a variety of art, craft and farmers markets alternating each weekend around the district. The Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery hosts local and national exhibitions including workshops, artist talks and performances.

The western side of Lake Macquarie adjoins the Watagan Mountains. Much of the lake is still surrounded by bushland, some of which is National Park. Across the lake, directly opposite the boathouse, on the eastern side of the lake, is ‘Pelican’ and ‘Swansea’. The Swansea Channel leads out to the Pacific Ocean. The Lake Macquarie region offers opportunities for fishing, swimming, water skiing, surfing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, wine tasting, live entertainment, shopping and much more. Newcastle is NSW second largest city. Walk along the Foreshore promenade, exploring the harbour from Honeysuckle to Nobby’s Beach. The Foreshore Park provides an excellent vantage point to view one of Australia’s busiest ports in action. Watch 300m bulk carriers navigating the harbour and busy tugs plying the waters. Many restaurants and cafés on the waterfront. Enjoy a picnic in majestic King Edward Park, with its elegant rotunda (c. 1898), hundred year old Norfolk Island Pines, stunning ocean views, beautiful gardens and sweeping lawns. Nearby, The Obelisk, a prominent feature on Newcastle’s skyline, was originally a stone flour mill and a guiding landmark for ships approaching the port.
  • Woukd recommend for a getaway. Perfect place!

    Geoff2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's Watersedge Boatshed is an outstanding stay on the edge of Lake Macquarie. So many thoughtful touches, all the amenities, and the location, are all superb. We wanted for nought. Do yourself a favour and book some time there. You'll come away relaxed and refreshed. We did. Thank you, Sandra and Colin.

    David2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful waterfront cottage with stunning surroundings. We were blown away by Sandra’s eye for detail, going above and beyond providing everything we could possibly need as well as providing ease of communication. The cottage was comfortable and sparkling clean. We loved our time here. It was the perfect romantic getaway for us. Thanks Sandra!

    Emily2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very pleasant stay with stunning view to wake up to each morning! Indeed a million dollar view. Lovely thoughtful touches all around the apartment. Loved the breakfast ad well.

    Kathy2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely perfect relaxing getaway at Arcadia Vale, beautiful location, quiet cottage right on the lake. The extra special touches made it an even better stay. Thank you Sandra and Colin, we definitely will back.

    Heather2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Where to begin! This truly was a first class experience. From the thoughtful personal touches, to the outstanding view and location, this was by far the most impressive bnb I have ever stayed in. Sandra was very friendly and accomodating and was always willing to help with any questions we had. The house was most comfortable and immaculately clean. Sandra had thought of everything including fresh produce in the fridge, baked goodies, cooking amenities, movies, books and so much more. My friend and I were most impressed and, despite exploring local beaches and cafes, enjoyed our stay so much we spent an entire day just lounging around the house and reading our books out by the water - talk about relaxing! Also, falling asleep to the sound of waves each night was beautifully peaceful in comparison to the busy city of Sydney we had travelled from. We both feel refreshed and recharged and are already longing to go back and experience more of the paradise that is Lake Macquarie.

    Light filled, ambient decor, surrounded by tall trees and views from every window. Backyard access to nature reserve along crest of peninsula. Private bathroom and entry, bedroom has lake views and private balcony.
    The room is downstairs, with a separate bathroom. It has a private balcony overlooking the lake with table and chairs to sip some wine on. As far as animals are concerned, well behaved dog's are welcome on approval by me but I do not have any fences, and I expect them to go with you if you go out, your dog must accompany you.
    I've lived here for the past 2 years, having sold my house in Sydney for a new adventure. This is my paradise. It's usually very quiet of an evening, although sometimes you will hear the growling possums, the owls, cookaburras and the rooster next door going off pre dawn, not to mention the beautiful path of shimmering moonlight on the lake casting shadows through the gum trees if you leave the blinds open. The bed is super comfortable to sleep in. It's not the Ritz, but people relax here.
  • It was amazing to stay at Helen’s place, she thought of everything to make us enjoy our long weekend with our 3 years old son. Great place to stay for relaxing and enjoying the lake, local places and getting around. Very easy to drive to new castle and caves beach. Thank you again for your hospitality Helen. :)

    Marlene2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

She provided equipment and basics to prepare breakfast ourselves in the passage between the garage and the front entrance. We appreciated her friendly welcome and acceptance of our dog in our room.

    Izzy2019-04-01T00:00:00Z

We'll definitely be booking it again next year when we're up that way again.

  • Comfortable stay with cheap prices. Place is huge and beds are comfortable. A lot of space. At this price, you don't get designer decorations, but who cares?

  • Great host and a great place, If AirBNB has a 'host of the year' award it would go to Jo. Always answered straight back, went out of her way to make us feel welcome and was generous in leaving homely treats and welcome packs and the useful things you need, eg olive oil, but don't want to buy for two nights. A real find and we will be back for sure!

It is the perfect place for families or friends who are looking to make some memories and enjoy a traditional lakeside getaway.
    Our cottage in paradise has a refurbished kitchen and all new stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you need to prepare your favourite meal or beverage. There are ample seating options for in house dining starting with an 8-seater dining table in the kitchen area where you can also enjoy the lake views. You may like the casual stools and high table in the front living space or perhaps one of the two outdoor dining spots available. The dining bench on the front verandah offers lake views or you may prefer the outdoor entertainment area in the back garden. This space offers a preparation bench, BBQ, BBQ Pizza Oven Box, fridge, bar and an open fire pit and has everything you need for outdoor living. The indoor living spaces have been created to cater for everyone and allow you to enjoy the views from where ever you choose to sit. The main lounge area has a very comfortable reclining suite and is the perfect spot to chat, listen to music, read a book or simply watch the world go by. You will find the high table at the next window which is a great space to enjoy a relaxing beverage or to have some fun playing cards or board games. In the other half of this space you will find the TV area where you can enjoy a movie on Netflix or again just look out the window and enjoy the view. The bedrooms are all comfortable and inviting with bedroom 1 featuring a brand new en suite. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and a built-in wardrobe while bedroom 3 has 2 x single beds as well a single built in robe and ottoman for storage. The single beds can be converted to a short king bed if you would prefer. We do have a cot available on request and it could fit in either bedroom 1 or in one of the living spaces. All bedding comes with quality linen for your comfort. The main bathroom has been renovated to give it a modern comfortable feel but it has retained a bit of the old with a half bath under the shower to cater for any little ones who might like a bath after a day of play .There is a separate fully equipped laundry which features a new 10 kg washer and a dryer for your convenience. One of the best features of our place is the view so you will find a variety of seating around the verandah to cater for the movement of the sun throughout the day. It should be noted that if you have a toddler, the wrap around verandah does not have a rail and the front yard is not fenced.
    Whether you are looking to do a lot or nothing at all, our beautiful part of the world has a lot to offer and you can do it all from your cottage in paradise. Our area is surrounded by water and you have direct access to the lake across the road from the property. You can launch your SUP or kayak straight from the waterfront reserve or if you would prefer to bring your boat, you will find the Swansea boat ramp is a 2-minute drive around the corner. The popular swimming spot at Coon Island is a short 300 mt walk away where you can swim in the crystal-clear waters or laze in the sun on the surrounding grassed areas. The diving is spectacular, and Ian will be happy to give you some tips on the best free diving spots around the area. If you prefer to scuba dive, the local dive shop is a short 3-minute drive away. You can cast a line from the reserve or pump for nippers and scoop for prawns in the lake’s waters directly at your feet. There are also plenty of beautiful spots for snorkelling and if you would like to give it a try you will find some spare snorkelling sets in the garden shed. There are plenty of amazing beaches with great waves for surfing and swimming close by. Caves Beach- 4.5 km or 7-minute drive Frenchmans and Hams Beach (Pet friendly/ Leash Free) -3.4 Km 7 min drive Blacksmiths Beach- 4.3 km 7-minute drive Catherine Hill Bay- 9 km 13-minute drive Redhead beach (Pet friendly/leash free in some areas)- 15km 20- min drive Merewether Beach -25 km 30-minute drive Newcastle Beach 29 km 35-minute drive If you are a land lover, you can enjoy the many spectacular walks around our beautiful coastal area or simply enjoy the local cafes, restaurants, clubs and pubs that are a 15-20-minute easy walk or 5-minute drive away. Your fur baby will also enjoy exploring the many pet friendly walks around the area and you will find that they are also welcome to join you at the outdoor cafes when it’s time for well-deserved break. Swansea is predominately flat, so it is the perfect spot for a bike ride and you will you have the choice of many beautiful picnic spots including the reserve across the road. Imagine getting the adrenaline pumping by trying skydiving or maybe a jet boat ride around the lake is more you pace. You can take a drive into the Newcastle and explore the harbour or visit the beautiful Hunter Valley and its vineyards, which are about 1 hrs drive away. Swansea itself is a small coastal town with its own shopping centre that includes both Woolworths and Coles. You will also find some speciality shops, a bakery, newsagent, beauty services, chemist, medical services and a library. The main street of Swansea is approx. 1.5 km away which is a very quick 3-minute drive or a 15-20-minute easy walk. How ever you choose to spend your time, there is nothing better than knowing you have your own little piece of paradise waiting for you to return. Enjoy a wine or beer as you watch the sunset over the lake, light up the barbie and enjoy outdoor living, roast marshmallows over the fire-pit under the stars, have some fun playing good old fashioned board games or chill out with your favourite book or movie while you get ready to do it all again tomorrow.
  • Lovely people , very easy to communicate with . Can’t wait to return

  • The location of this property is amazing - overlooking Lake Macquarie. Kylie & Ian have made the property very welcoming, everything is well kept, it has good kitchen equipment and lots of thoughtful touches. The bedrooms are great, there is a lot of living space and a big outdoor area as well as the beautiful outlook of Lake Macquarie.

    Hannah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect this place to have everything you need, and feels like home! It has a great outdoor space at the back and on the front porch to relax or socialise. They are pet friendly and our dog Bumper felt at home very quickly. Our toddler also enjoyed the spacious backyard. You are only a short drive away from many beaches, but you have a beautiful view of the lake right across the road if you feel like staying in.

    Leyra2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie was very responsive and both a great host. Amazing home with a great view, a good place if you are looking for a weekend away to relax! Definitely visit again

    Sloane2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • wonderful place!

    2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Kylie and Ian’s place with our 4 kids for 3 nights and we wished we had booked it for longer. It was like a home away from home in the most perfect spot. Had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would definitely comeback and stay again.

    Thomas2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Photos dont do it justice! Really amazing place, Kylie and Ian thought of everything, mozzies came out, they had mozzie spray, needed help with a trailer bearing, Ian had parts and a grease gun. Next time we are bringing our animals with. Very nice clean place with everything you would need and more in a self catering unit. We will be back and will be telling our friends of this Gem of a place.

  • My family and I had a relaxing couple of days at Peace in Paradise. It had everything we needed plus more. We took advantage of the bike track across the road and the kids rode loops. Teenager and hubby took advantage of the canoe and went out on the lake late in the arvo. We sat and relaxed watching the sun set behind the lake, cooked pizzas in the pizza oven and enjoyed the coffee. Plenty of space for our family with 3 boys who have all agreed we should return, next time for longer. Thank you. 😊
