Lake Macquarie Holiday Rentals

Just booked in Lake Macquarie

A beautifully renovated lakeside home. Large open plan living/kitchen/dining room with extensive lake views. The perfect weekend getaway from Sydney or family holiday by the lake. We invite you to relax, unwind & enjoy!
You will feel worlds away from everything at this beautiful lakeside retreat. A huge deck on the eastern side is the perfect place to entertain and enjoy a BBQ with friends. The deck wraps around the northern side to give unrivalled lake views. Waterfront reserve runs from the house down to its own boatshed and jetty where you can launch your paddleboard, windsurfer, boat or cool off for a swim in the lake. Kitchen features all brand new appliances and windows opening out onto the side deck.
The town of Wangi is a sailing mecca on the shores of Lake Macquarie. The Wangi Sailing Club is just a few doors down from the house, making this a perfect spot for sailors racing on Lake Macquarie's waters.
  • The Boathouse was the first air bnb experience I have had, and I am so over the moon happy with everything. Emma was a great host and was very responsive, her instructions on getting to the property were clear & easy to understand and she left instructions on how to use everything. The Boathouse itself is absolutely stunning! We loved staying there for the weekend and an already trying to work out schedule to come back again. The photos do not do the home justice; we had 6 girls staying there, but there was plenty of room for all of us; the home is well equipped with anything you might need and the area was just beautiful. Would definately (and have already started) recommending people to come stay at the boathouse. Thanks again Emma & the boathouse for a beautiful weekend!

  • Emma is such a wonderful host! It was a wonderful stay! The House has such a positive vibe! friendly neighbours greeted us! Beautiful & spacious kitchen! We watched the sunrise along with a few dolphins as they playfully dance around the lake, Went for a Walk under the trees just beside the lake We had a really great time cannot wait to visit again soon!

  • Sunrise is beautiful sitting on the deck outside

  • My husband and I and two sister enjoyed a lovely weekend at Emma looking over the beautiful lake this May 2017 to catch up with our daughter and soninlaw and celebrate our grandsons 1st birthday. It was a great home to enjoy our family catch time and thougherly recommend a stay here.

  • The Wangi Wangi Boathouse was a perfect place to stay. It was situated right on the lake with a cycle path at the front door. Our kids loved cycling around Wangi along the cycle track. We spent a lot of fun my whole family. The overall set up of the house worked very well for our family of 4 and the kitchen and lounge room had a fantastic outlook overlooking the lake. All in all a very comfortable house with very friendly & helpful neighbours. Emma was lovely to deal with and very quick at responding to any queries. We would love to return one day. Kind regards, Peter Chae & Family

    Peter2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Emma's place is gorgeous. Well equipped and in a beautiful location. Such an amazing place to sit and relax and for the kids to explore. We look forward to visiting again soon.

    Danielle2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place to get away from it all for a few days - I took my parents here who were visiting from overseas to get out of the city for a while and they loved it. The house is hotel quality, immaculately clean with top-notch facilities and that awesome view. Would definitely return.

    Graham2016-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a beautiful house!! So picturesque, lovely verandah to sit out and have breakfast, great kitchen and living space! Not having towels and sheets provided makes things a little difficult, but other than that this place is perfect!! Would definitely stay again!

  • Spotless little pool house perfect for a couple getaway. The property is in an immaculate condition, brand new with everything you need to make yourself at home. The location is perfect 5 minutes walking to the beach and 5 minutes walking to the RSL, cafes and shops. Communication with Georgie was very quick and efficient could not fault the place at all. We are already planning our next trip.

    Walter2017-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Georgie's place is amazing and absolute gem of a place! Highly recommend and couldn't thank Georgie and Rex enough. So thoughtful and considerate with every extra touch - chocolates on the bed, great expresso coffee machine, drinks... Couldn't ask for more with a home away from home! They are super friendly and you won't regret the stay! Just heavenly.

    Angela2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place really is amazing! My parents stayed here for a night away and they could not rate it or their host Georgie highly enough. There were many special extra touches such as great breakfast items, cold beer and chocolates. The accommodation was extremely clean, modern and well appointed, they could not have asked for more!

    Emma2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended! Beautiful little house, with everything you can possibly need inside! (Hair drier, pool towels, towels, iron, ironing board, microwave, washing machine....Even the fridge had plenty of food and drinks inside!) And last, but not least..the bed was so confortable!! One of the best sleeps I had! ;) Location is perfect, 5 minutes away from the beach and only a short drive from the best tracking paths along the lake. Georgie and her family were very sweet and helpful. Thank you again, Georgie!!

    Ilaria & Clément2017-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Georgie’s place exceeded expectation. The pool and surroundings felt like we were staying in a resort. The large number of extra touches impressed.

    Elaina2017-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely night there. Wished we had longer and weather was slightly warmer so we could use the amazing pool. Geoegie is lovely and communication is great while maintaining privacy. The room is gorgeous with so many provisions provided. A real gem of a place. Thank you.

    Enjoy the relaxing comfort of our B & B in the village of Wangi Wangi which is situated on the shores of Lake Macquarie. Self-contained unit with private access and ample parking. Only a short walk to the lake, 45 minutes drive to the Hunter Valley vineyards, and 40 minutes drive from Newcastle.
  • Jill & Rods B&B is more like a resort than a B&B. The minute we arrived we were welcomed by Rod, Jill and Ruby, who helped us from the car to our accomodation. The set up is amazing with more room than most resort accomodations, a massive veranda for your own use, lots of little extras, such as a coffee machine, wifi and a massive smart TV in the lounge as well as a lovely continental breakfast waiting for you. The bed was beautiful to sleep in and the bathroom is like a luxury resort bathroom. We would highly recommend Rod & Jills B&B and will definitely be using this as our accomodation of choice when staying at Lake Maquarie.

  • Spacious and well equipped, we enjoyed our 4 nights stay in Beth's apartment. We barely ever needed our car and preferred walking around (very central location).

    Matthieu2016-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beth was very prompt with her communication and the apt was simply appointed with modern touches. Location was good for walking and on the water but also next to a busy road and sidewalk. Would stay here again!

    Kyle2016-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was just a short visit, but Beth's place had exactly what we needed - 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds for a good night's sleep, and some excellent coffee to get us started in the morning. The living and outdoor area is beautifully set up, and we wished that we could have stayed longer to enjoy it properly. It was very simple to get the key, and no problem that we arrived after 8pm. There was even a welcoming light on inside. Thanks Beth!

    Mandy2016-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect little apartment for us to enjoy after a day's bushwalking. All the little touches helped to make it such a comfortable and enjoyable experience. We had a quick dip in the pool (beach towels provided) and then enjoyed a BBQ in the front courtyard. Really clean, comfortable beds, Beth was very friendly, gave us lots of info about the local facilities and responded quickly to enquiries. Highly recommended if you are looking to stay in Toronto.

    Megan2016-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for our size family, clean with all the amenties and more! Perfect location, close to water and shops. We will definitely be coming back!

    Emma2017-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beth was a excellent host this stay had exceeded our expectations a very comfortable stay in a great location. The kids wished they could have stayed longer enjoying their time around the lake and in the pool. We were very surprised to have found plenty of milk in the fridge which was a nice touch as the kids go through it and sparkling water for the grown ups we had even left a pair of jeans behind which Beth kindly posted over to us. Would be definitely be wanting to go back Thank you

    David2016-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful apartment, would definitely recommend to my friends.

    KYLE2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beth had great local shopping advice and helped us out to enter the apartment earlier to align with our flight arrival, fantastic! The place was great, so clean and stylish and quiet at night for a good night's sleep. We had a great stay and would definitely stay again.

    Edwin2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were the first guests at this property. Had some minor issues . Worst was the drive way. It was not accessible at all unless you have 4x4. Very Steep. This should be made clear in the ad. Rest were just minor things and did not spoil our stay. Great Location with good views . Not a short walk to the village and restaurants , (it is quite hilly)but only 5-6 minutes in the car.

    Ira Rhonda 2017-10-15T00:00:00Z

  • It was such a pleasure to stay at Zoila's place. She made us feel welcome and safe. The place had lots of great features and was very clean. I would recommend.

    Arlene2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Spotless, comfortable, good quality kitchen appliances, and completely baby/toddler proof. Ideal for young families.

    xavier2016-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely spot in a quiet neighborhood. The flat is very accommodating for families, and kids especially loved the pool. The flat was super clean on arrival and zoila was very welcoming.

    Belinda2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Zoila's self contained apartment under their house was very private, spacious and modern. We had a great time and enjoyed the local area as well.

    Chris2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great value-for-money granny flat, located underneath the host's dwelling. It is in a lovely setting with nice pool. Excellent for people with toddlers. Zoila and her little boy are very nice and didn't intrude; but the shared laundry is in the granny - flat's bathroom. You can hear the little boy running around upstairs a bit, but that didn't worry us at all.

    Terry2017-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Zoila was an exceptional host. She went above and beyond to make my mum feel comfortable and confident with getting where she needed to go. Thank you Zoila

    Lee2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great room, excellent host and a very comfy Bed

    Benjamin2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation is great for a couple with a young child or two, but just as good for a couple (or single) looking to get away for a few days. Spotlessly clean, and more spacious than I was expecting. Don't bother booking for one night - if you do, you'll immediately regret not booking for a week once you start to unwind beside the pool, or when looking out over the valley from the back porch. Two thumbs up for our first booking through airbnb.

It was wonderful just looking out at the views and taking it all in. The house is well equipped all round with plenty of towels & bedding and the beds are very comfy. The main bedroom and ensuite are particularly good. We liked the layout and there was loads of natural light throughout and it's very spacious. The lazee boy chairs and sofa were great for relaxing too! Lynn is a great host and responded to all my questions and emails quickly and was really helpful. I'd definitely recommend staying here!

    Our lake cottage is located in a private setting on our property on the waterfront at Coal Point, Lake Macquarie. The lake offers a relaxing place to escape and unwind, with a morning swim or walk, fishing off the jetty, kayaking or reading a book.
    This is a perfect spot to bring your own boat with access to a jetty, which also provides a great place from which to fish. Kayaks can be provided for use during your stay. North east facing for spectacular sunrises. Situated 5 minutes from Toronto Shopping village with Woolworths, Coles, cafes and restaurants. Well positioned for exploring the Hunter Valley Vineyards or Newcastle.
    The best coffee in town is at Double Take cafe, and next door is a great restaurant Felici Mi. Bookings are essential on weekends. Menus and contact details of local cafes and restaurants are provided in the guestbook. There is a Woolworths and Coles located in Toronto Village. The closest bottle shop is in Laycock St, Carey Bay ( three minutes drive away) and has an excellent choice of wines and beer available.
  • What a delightful place. A very high quality, tastefully restored boatshed cottage situated a metre from the edge of Lake Macquarie in Coal Point. Perfect for a private and relaxing holiday. It was so quiet and peaceful. We (2 of us) were there for long-weekend – but with hindsight, not long enough. The cottage is possibly the best equipped that we have stayed in – really everything and lots of thoughtful added extras. The fish co-op in nearby Newcastle has some wonderful fresh local fish and shellfish which tasted delightful on the deck right on the edge of the lake. Perfect with a chilled Hunter Valley Semillon! Vicki is a wonderful and welcoming host who is very passionate about her business. This place will not disappoint. The steps down to the cottage added to the privacy and seclusion – worth every step (and pause to listen to enjoy the sounds of the Whip Birds) - but not easy access for anyone physically impaired. Absolutely fantastic.

    Sue2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly greeted by Vicki and Charles. Couldn't ask for more in a host and a place to stay. Great location nearby to Toronto shops and a stones throw (literally) from the water. We were left in complete privacy. The cottage is very well presented with lots of little extras. Bonus use of the jetty with some great fishing to be had. We cannot wait to return.

    Ian2016-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant stay, clean and comfortable. Vicky is very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for the fruits and chocolates. Access is a bit of a workout but we didn't mind.

  • It is a Great location with the water right outside for us to swim, fish and canoe. The cottage was nice and clean and comfortable. We look forward to coming back in the future and recommend it to our friends. The fruit, coffee machine, videos, books, games and chocolates were a great inclusion.

  • Wonderful place, wonderful and thoughtful hosts!!! Rebecca and her family were very welcoming and so accommodating. The cottage is very modern, high quality, well equipped and decorated. The view is stunning and relaxing. We will go back and would recommend to anyone. We loved it !

    Jenni & Arno2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our anniversary weekend at this beautiful place. Such a nice spot right on the lake, we left our tinny out the front and spent the weekend between being on the water and relaxing in the luxurious cabin. The sunrise and breakfast on the front deck was a highlight.

    Ben2017-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. If you're after a getaway that is quiet and peaceful in a home with quality finishes then this is the place. Host Rebecca is extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and I would also love to return. It's a must.

    Manja2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my girlfriend Just came back from a perfect weekend away at Lake Macquarie. The accommodation was spotless and more than lived up to our expectations. Our host Rachael was lovely and took time out of her evening to tell us about the best local spots and gave us brochures and advice on things to do in the local area. Was a really relaxing weekend out of the city, we spent most of the day kayaking on the lake and drinking wine on the balcony. Visited cave beach and a national park in the area. We highly recommend it and will definitely be back! Thanks very much Rachael and family!

    Josh2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a stunning location! The cottage was just perfect for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. To wake up to this view every morning would be heaven. Rebecca was a great host, providing all details prior to our stay, and giving us space whilst there. The breakfast basket was brilliant, more than enough to feed 2 of us for our 4 night stay. The cottage is only a 3 minute drive to Toronto, a great little town that has everything you need - supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, and a nice 30-40 minute drive to the Hunter Valley. Brilliant stay, the cottage has everything you need.

    Janelle2016-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • One word - amazing. This place is absolutely fantastic. It is luxurious, literally right on the lake (you can fish from the balcony!), has all of the homely amenities that you don't get in a hotel and has the added bonus of a breathtaking view. This place is more like a luxury escape than anything else. Rebecca was always there to lend a hand, and probably one of the nicest people I have ever met, she is so friendly and accommodating. The added homely touch of breakfast supplies and a fully stoked fruit basket are simply above and beyond. You will not go wrong with spending a couple of nights, of even a couple of months here, it is truly a wonderful and relaxing place with luxury amenities, a super comfy bed and one of the greatest showers you will ever experience. I could go on and on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Richard2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cedar cottage was amazing - if I could live there forever we would. It was beautiful and serene. Rebecca was great - very helpful and kind. Cannot recommend it more highly. I will be back for sure! xxx

    Louie2016-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • I was looking for accommodation for a relaxing weekend away when I came across Cedar Cottage. From booking, Rebecca was great, we got an almost instant reply for acceptance and also excellent directions to the nearest town, how to get to the cottage and even asked about what we'd like for our breakfast ingredients! Rebecca was continuously helpful in the days approaching our visit with more information and we finally made it in to be greeted by Rebecca to help carry our things down the to cottage and a welcome tour! The Cottage itself is wonderful! Spectacular views of the lake, quite and peaceful and inside is very well done and decorated! It's no different to 5 star hotels you may visit. From linen, to toiletries, to utensils, everything is very high quality and super clean! The kitchen is well equipped with all you'd need to cook, prep, or even just serve up some wine and cheese to relax next to the water. For activities, there is plenty to check out seaside or 1 hour from Hunter Valley to explore wineries - but to be honest, after our first exploration trip - we decided that sitting on the balcony and taking in the view is probably the best way to spend time here - it is absolutely beautiful! Rebecca also offered us a canoe that we could take out onto the water and also a great walking trail along the river. In any case, Rebecca is a wonderful host and Cedar Cottage is gorgeous. I'll definitely be back and recommending it!

House was not totally clean and lawns were long. Host usually contactable. Issues once with obtaining check in details, had to gain assistance from airbnb help on first day of rental as no details sent prior.

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.
  • Sandra's place is absolutely incredible! Make sure you wake up early for that amazing sunrise before enjoying a hearty breakfast courtesy of a wonderful host!

  • Sandra and Colin are the most accomodating hosts. Watersedge was a wonderful private escape from busy Sydney life. We had two fantastic nights there and loved every moment. Beautiful setting and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying on Lake Macquarie. Five stars all around!

    James2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra and Colin's boathouse was the perfect spot for us to stay. We were here for 2 nights and truely didn't want to leave. We really appreciated all the extras that Colin and Sandra had included for us. Such as: the use of their bikes and helmets to go exploring in. The use of their kayaks, life jackets and kayak shoes. It was obvious that they had gone to a lot of effort to make us feel welcome and enjoy our stay. We loved the breakfast that was provided for us each morning, the use of bathrobes, there are DVDs, books, a fully functional kitchen and beautiful bathroom with towels, shampoo and conditioner. Plus use of a washing machine and dryer. They had even gone to effort to put music on a usb to listen to for dinner. They include comprehensive details about things to do in the area which helped us plan our time. The spot they have is wonderful it looks just as good if not better in the photos! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful boathouse.

    katie2015-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had three nights away at the Watersedge Boathouse, well and truly solidifying a spot as one of my favourite places. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect - the room was even better than the photos showed, candles and oils were plentiful, and we even had a little cake that Sandra had cooked for us (on top of the amazing breakfast they'd left us). You shouldn't be fooled that there are no reviews here as of yet (they only just joined Airbnb) - Sandra and Colin have been doing this for six years, and it shows. Every minuscule detail has been thought out - from the books in the shelf, to the aromatherapy oils, to the awesome kayaks for your personal use - all making you feel like this is your own little home away from home. If you're still skeptical about whether this place is right for you - I can say, without a doubt, it will be. Sandra and Colin - thank you for giving me one of the most relaxing weekends. We will definitely be back (soon!).

    Alexandra2015-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had the most relaxing weekend at Watersedge! It completely exceeded our expectations and the photos definitely do not do it justice - the view from the boathouse is even more gorgeous than shown. Sandra was both a welcoming and discreet host - incredibly approachable, yet we were certainly left to enjoy Watersedge on our own. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Leigh2015-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The boathouse was just gorgeous, so cosy & well equipped! It has a beautiful outlook over Lake Macquarie, & is very private. We loved our stay & hope to be back! Highly recommended. Thanks again Sandra!

  • Very nice place to have a relaxing break. Super clean, well appointed and conveniently located inside the Raffles Resort so that you can utilise all of the resort facilities including pools, spas, tennis court. A large deck attached to the unit is a plus where we could enjoy our morning and afternoon tea during our stay. Corinne is a very considerate host, highly organised that every necessary information was given clearly in advance such that what we had to when we got there was just to laid back and relax. We strongly recommend this place to those who want to have hassle free relaxation in a nature friendly ambience while still being able to enjoy convenience that a city life can offer such as super fast wi fi, a wide range entertainment options - superb surrounding audio system, good selection of DVD, Foxtell etc.

  • This cozy cottage on the waterfront was perfect for our little family. Tucked away on the point but with shops and a couple restaurants 5 mins down the road at Rathmines. The bakery makes a good coffee and the Chinese restaurant was a pleasant surprise with good quality food. Lots of parks nearby for the kids if the weather is good and FYI if its rainy and windy head 20 mins to Morriset to Tin Lids Playcentre for a big indoor fun park for young kids to burn off some energy. Gabrielle was a great host who went above and beyond to help us out with a flexible check in/out. The cottage had everything we needed along with a few special touches to welcome us.

    Gavin2016-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Gabrielle's cottage. It is very well supplied with everything needed for a comfortable and stress free stay. Gabrielle gave us very clear directions and information about the area and left a welcoming note. The air conditioning and overhead fans were a cooling relief from the heat outside, the beds very comfortable and there was a canoe and surf skis in the boat shed for our enjoyment. We definitely recommend this airbnb cottage. Thank you Gabrielle.

    Sherrin2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Gabrielle was very responsive and welcoming - the Timtams on arrival were a very nice touch. The cottage is in a quiet street with lovely views over Lake Macquarie. Mind the steep driveway - we ended up parking on the nature strip. There was ample linen and towels, along with board games, DVDs and books. It was good to be able to use the canoe and kayak, although both need minor repairs and the life jackets could do with an upgrade. Overall a good first experience with Air BnB.

    Susy2016-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gabrielle's cottage is perfect for a weekend escape, me and my family really enjoyed the stay. We did fishing at our private wharf and got lots of fish. Kids love the back yard and the deck. Only to complain is the steep drive way,,, I scratched the bottom of my sedan :( Thanks Gabrielle to let me check out flexibly.

    Yan2016-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was very warm and cosy. The view from the deck was beautiful. A great place to stay with kids. The house had all the essentials and the host was very accommodating. The linen provided was clean and comfortable. We had a great weekend and are looking forward to going back.

    Lilian2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most amazing time!! The place was neat and tidy and I almost cried seeing the toy corner that really kept our two under 6 occupied! Such a little thing but meant so much on holidays. You can't beat location and there was plenty of fish off our boat and down by the jetty! Beds were super comfortable! Pans and bbq needs a bit of updating but didn't stop our enjoyment. Gabrielle was also fantastic with her communication and very warm and welcoming. We will definitely come back again and again.

    Anna2016-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a slice of heaven this place is. Our family loved the house, the deck the area. Communications with host were spot on. My youngest ripped a 2.5kg salmon out on our last day. Landed while he was fishing from the canoe.

We suggest you book if you would like to have dinner there. They also do take away meals. The neighbourhood is usually fairly quiet. Please consider the neighbours as you move around and explore. Many neighbours live there permanently. It is advisable to have your own transport to travel around the area as public transport is very limited. Please drive slowly throughout the resort as there are always people out walking and free range children are about. It is a great place for bike riding or scooters. There are lots of bike tracks around the shores of Lake Macquarie. The pub at Catherine Hill Bay serves excellent food.

  • Cams Wharf and the beautiful surrounding areas are quick to access some within walking distance. There is so much to do. Beach, bushwalks, fishing. etc. The kids loved all the resort facilities, the sunsets down on the waters edge and the comfort of Kingfisher cottage to relax at. There is great coffee at the resort and at Murray's Beach Cafe. Thank you Vera for being in touch when needed.

High recommend staying here and will definitely stay again.

  • This place is a little gem. It is peaceful, beautifully decorated, simple but with everything needed. Lots of little attentions like toys for toddlers, DVDs to watch, homemade cake/chocolates/breads/cereals/jams/butter/newspaper etc to welcome you. The garden is also very pleasant and fenced. We felt like on holidays. The hosts are just wonderful. On top of that it is very well located, close to macquarie lake, playgrounds, cafes/restaurants or Newcastle. Don't look any further if you are looking in this area!

    As new, one bedroom apartment has all you need for a comfortable stay only 250 metres/2 minute walk from the famous Redhead Beach. Major shopping centres 10mins. Newcastle 20mins. Redhead beach is patrolled by lifeguards in season and offers great surfboard riding opportunities, nature/beach walks and whale watching. Fernleigh Track for walking/cycling is nearby. Proximity to the beach, shops, cafes, restaurants, bowling club and tennis courts means you may not have to leave Redhead.
    Private entry into this self contained space provides access to comfortable living for 1-2 guests. Full kitchen with both oven and microwave. The bedroom is separated from the living area by the combined bathroom/laundry. We will provide you with some free breakfast items for your first morning. A great space for non-smokers.

There are two major shopping centres within 15mins. Both John Hunter Hospital and Belmont Hospitals are within 20 mins.
  • Great location, short walk to beach. Gerard and Janelle very friendly and welcoming and were very accommodating. We appreciated the coffee pods, cereal and toast. There was everything we needed for our stay in the apartment. Enjoyed the Malaysian restaurant down the road too.

    Sonja2016-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Gerard and Janelle for your hospitality! The apartment was terrific - comfortable, clean and had everything we wanted. The location is excellent with the beach nearby. I would definitely stay there again.

    Peter2015-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. Walking distance to red head beach. It's a cozy basement apartment that has everything you need to feel right at home. There was no air conditioning in the unit. But with windows and blinds closed during the day, it keeps out the heat. It is within walking distance to the nearest bus stop to hit the shops which takes about 40 minutes. Has all the amenities that you need. Had nice personal touches added such as fresh flowers on the table and breakfast items ready for you . There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance for those who would like a night away from cooking. Gerard and Janelle were the perfect hosts and would definitely stay there again

    Mary2017-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ah! What a stay! Upon arrival Gerard and Janelle greeted us on their front driveway with a great smile and a welcoming personality. The apartment is as described, and even better than what the photos let on. It's practically newly renovated and screams quality throughout. AND THAT BED! I had the best sleep of my life - so comfortable! Great location, literally two minutes from the beach and surf lifesaver's club. Great surf, great coffee, great vibes. 10/10 would stay again!

    Benjamin2015-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Gerard and Jenelle were great hosts - very friendly and welcoming. The apartment was new, clean and very comfortable with everything you need. The bed was extremely comfortable for some with arthritis like myself An added bonus was the supplied breakfast. The location is amazing, just a short walk (at the end of the street) to the surf beach, cliff top walks, restaurants and the surf club cafe. It is centrally located to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, The Hunter Valley and Port Stevens. Would love to return and highly recommend Gerard and Jenelle's apartment.

    Kevin2015-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Gerard and Janelle made us feel very welcome. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet and very well appointed. Being so close to the beach was a bonus as we had an enjoyable walk in the morning.

    Frank2015-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly hosts, marvellous beaches nearby, close to new castle, the place is extremely clean. Really enjoyed 2 nights spend at the self contained escape!

    Ruyang2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Gerard and Janelle were fantastic hosts. The place was exactly as described and perfect for a weekend getaway! The rooms were tidy, the bed was very comfortable, kitchen and appliances were all fantastic and the positioning of the house was fantastic, near the beach. Gerard and Janelle left us to our own devices but offered advice when needed which was very helpful! My partner and I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to anyone looking to stay near the beach up north, or for a nice, secluded place a short drive away from Newcastle. Thank you very much! Justin and Steph.

    Khandakar2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptionally pleasant cottage here by the Lake! Just what we needed...a weekend to unwind in a peaceful and very clean environment! The little touches - flowers , books, biscuits , soft furnishings to say the least make it feel like home and it's just so comfy. The kitchen is excellent and fully functional (we put this to good use) all very accurate to the blurb you read when choosing a place to stay...which is always a winner for us! Pens and note pads, uno (we had a few good fun games of this...considering it was our Father/Daughter weekend away it was a cool blast from the past to play card games together). Our little 10 month old Puppy got to experience her very first holiday away from home here and was so content and loved exploring in this safe space inside and out (I love how the yard is all fenced in..this meant I didn't have to worry about her at all). Dom and Cindy are both great hosts - so welcoming and helpful...we will definitely be back and highly recommend this Lake side cottage for guests near and far! Come and experience what we did...you will be glad you did!! Peter, Kate and Daisy

    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.
  • Excellent, beautiful location, very clean, well presented, very helpful & welcoming, absolutely LOVED it!

    MICHELLE2017-10-29T00:00:00Z

    Mark2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great little space right on the water. Quiet, right on the water, roughly 45 minutes from the Hunter valley. Loved it - hope to be back sometime.

    John2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lucky find. This place has to have been one of the best I have stayed in. From the lakeside location with incredible views to the delicious treats that were left for us to enjoy. Will definitely try to come back. Thanks so much Deb and John.

    Oliver2016-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay with Debbie and John, amazing hosts! Still can't believe how close to the water you are which makes for a relaxing stay. Can't fault anything; very private, short drive or easy walk into town and has everything you need. The welcome pack and the availability of kayaks made the stay better than expected.

    Torodes is a beautiful beach house located opposite the stunning white sand surfing beach of Catherine Hill Bay. The house has 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 8 people, with wide shaded verandahs, large fenced gardens, & beautiful beach views from the upstairs sunroom & balcony.
    Torodes is literally moments from the sand and you can't stay any closer to the beach in all of Catho. It is just 90 minutes drive north from the Sydney CBD. The heritage-listed village of Catherine Hill Bay consists of less than 150 houses, and is one of the oldest communities in the Lake Macquarie area. Catherine Hill Bay is in the Hunter Valley Region of NSW and has recently been recognised for its outstanding beauty in the book "101 Best Australian Beaches". Across the road, the southern end of Catherine Hill Bay beach is patrolled from October to April. Recreational activities include swimming, surfing, fishing and coastal walks. The village is surrounded by National Parks and is a great base for bushwalking and bird watching.
  • Everything about our stay was wonderful except that it rained most of the week. Pre-holiday advice was excellent. Host always accommodating. Location and facilities in house excellent.

    Sandra2015-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Torodes is a fantastic beach house!!! The kitchen was amazing and we loved the relaxing feel of the house. We were a group 6 including my parents and my 21 month old toddler.... and everything in the house suited everyone! It was really handy having a portacot and high chair ready to go. Thanks Paul

    Kam2015-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our extended family gathering in this beautiful historical house with amazing character as well as all the comforts one could possibly wish for. The photos don't do justice to the beautiful garden and the description of the property doesn't include all the details that made everything so easy & fun (the list of thoughtful details would be enormous if were truly accurate!) One potentially important detail for those with kids is the location being right on the main road; though the property is entirely fenced and extremely well-maintained/well set-up for family holidays - no flimsy or delicate doors that might not respond well to kids going in & out, and sooo many fun things to keep little people occupied that they had no time to get up to mischief! The easy walk directly across the road to the beach via the small surf lifesaving club car park was perfect distance for us...easy to make multiple trips in the day, each of us visiting as we pleased! Probably worth mentioning we didn't have great wifi internet in the house (and for those of us not with telstra we hade no mobile phone reception or mobile internet). Though the owner was helpful once we could contact him & my impression was that the property usually does have a reliable internet connection...and that we were probably more relaxed without it;)

    Verity2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our group loved our time at Tordes. We had perfect winter weather and there was a heap of firewood to keep us warm of a night. The property was clean and the girls couldn't stop commenting on the perfect interior design! Loved having breakfast on the front balcony, catching the morning sun and enjoying the views out to sea. Paul has a gem of a spot in Catherine Hill! We have already agreed that we must return in summer. The water was a little fresh!!

    Dave2015-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • thank you for having us! we can't say enough of what a fantastic location and property! we were amazed when we first stepped in through the front door and how it just was situated close right by the beach, the home's modern & beautifully designed interior accommodated our group of 8 perfectly. I particularly loved my time in the verandahs both front and back of the house. I definitely will have this place in mind for the next getaway!

    Johnny2014-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic, historic, rustic yet modern beach house - right across the road! Great communication, the house more than met the description and expectations. Thoroughly recommended - but let me get my future booking in first!

  • Thanks Deanne for making my first Airbnb experience so easy. Loved waking up in the morning with the blinds up and the water right in front of you. Modern very clean premises. We enjoyed being so close to the Lakehouse Cafe, a beautiful spot for breakfast. Beautiful location and we hope to be back to use the kayaks when it's a bit warmer.

    Large , private room with very comfortable bed and built in wardrobe. House is a five minute walk to the beach. Quiet area. Use of separate living area. Enjoy the Beach which is a short walk away with caves to explore as well as rock pools. Lake Macquarie is also close by and can be seen from room. You can go kyacking, stand up paddle boarding or fishing . Caves Beach is 40 minutes from the center of Newcastle and 25 minutes from Charlestown
    Caves Beach is one of the best beaches in the area for surfing , body or boogie boarding and swimming as the waves are usually gentle compared to other beaches. There is a surf school that operates in summer. Even in the cooler months the weather is temperate.
  • The place was clean and Margaret was very friendly providing local and regional maps as well as ideas of where to eat. The was a mulberry tree laden with fruit to pick and eat in the yard. Really enjoyed our stay here.

  • Margaret was absolutely lovely and so was her house :) Super clean, great location and a friendly host who went above and beyond (even baked a cake as it was my birthday and gave us a lift to the wedding we were attending). 10/10 would recommend!

  • The sunset from Jane's place is fantastic! For a group of 7, it is worth the money.

  • We loved staying at this wonderful lakeside location. Jane was very quick at communicating and we appreciated her flexibility with check in. It was great being able to use a kayak and enjoy the lake!

  • A must do for a quiet weekend with the fam bam! Free kayaks on site which is a huge bonus and we found a portable cot for the little one so it was amazing! The fridge has ice and cold water dispenser so we loved it. The window blinds are all electric and the place is impeccably clean. The only thing we noticed was the garbage from the previous stay hadn't been cleaned out. A must recommend for a truly magical weekend

  • This was the perfect getaway with a few friends, highlight of my year! The house was fully furnished with comfort, we used the kayaks for our whole stay and everything was perfect, I would definitely go back. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to getaway for a weekend from the busy city life ..thanks Jane! The pictures don't do enough justice for this place

  • Jane is a great host and everything you need is in the house. The location is stunning and the house is immaculate. Great for a family holiday! We loved being able to go on the lake in the kayaks.

    The place was clean and spacious. It could fit 6 people comfortably. I will definitely consider Maira/Patrick's place if we are going to that area next time.
