"Sunset" sits on a level direct waterfront parcel of land between Newcastle and Sydney. Included with your holiday is beds for Ten guests, Plasma TV and DVD player,Foxtel, BBQ, Fans in all rooms and huge private decks abound. Plus all other features expected in such a beautiful executive home.

" Sunset " also is highlighted by its exclusive " Lake front " cinema. Sit outside on the bleacher seats and bean bags, chilled bottle of wine watching the latest movie on the giant screen as the last rays of sun slip gently down over the lake.

Should you wish to have a Dinner Party catered in-house, we have an exclusive catering firm who specialise in such functions and will personalise your dining experience leaving you free to enjoy the evening with your friends and family.

Launch your boat or Jet Ski from the boat ramp at the end of the street and moor it out the front of the house on your Jetty.

By arrangement " Sunset " can provide a fishing guide and boat to pick you up at your own jetty and take you to the top spots. The owner of the boat will give you a price specifically based on your needs and group size. The fishing boat owners' contact information will be forwarded to you before your check-in so you can make your arrangements directly with him.


Sunset sits exactly halfway between NSW's two biggest cities Sydney and Newcastle. It is a small fishing hamlet and the fishermen will regularly offer you varieties of crab, prawns and fish right at your doorstep. !! Perfect on Saturday night with guests believe me.

Mannering Park has all mod cons needed without the excess.

Shopping centres are a short drive as are restaurants and clubs. Beautiful beaches and national parks are within 10 minutes, even a " Nude" beach for the more adventurous.

Sailing, skiing, wakeboarding, sculling and fishing are world class and right at your own jetty.

Absolutely stunning property

  • 5 of 5

I'm reluctant to write a glowingly positive review....because this property is a hidden gem that I don't want to share with anyone!!!

We went for 3 nights with 3 couples and a couple of kids - plenty of communal areas, but private spaces as well. The deck overlooking the Lake was a hit - a glass (or 2) of wine and some cheese, watching the sun go down - MAGIC! Ducks waddling around. Beautiful. The games were a hit - pool, snooker, table tennis, basketball - even a leisurely paddle on the lake! The house was clean, spacious, modern and comfortable for all. Julie was terrific to deal with and we were all so grateful for her help.

We WILL be back!!

Fantastic Property and Location!!! A+

  • 5 of 5

After 10+ years to this property, since our last visit. It was a suprise father's day present and my son's suprise holiday away.

We had our family come and everyone enjoyed their stay and in comfort.

Air-con in living room, found that we heated the whole house.

Large bbq was great! 2 fridges came in great use! Pool table and table tennis was used and we all enjoyed the entertainment.

Large to spread out for time-out.

I can go on and on....the only fault..was during our time was windy not much time on the water with our boat.

Bit will definately come again and thanks to the hosts for great communication.

Highly recommended!!!

Great property for a relaxing group getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sunsets is a fabulous place to stay if you are after a quiet and relaxing getaway. Property was clean, spacious and comfortably fit 10 people. It was also very well stocked for a holiday rental with cooking utensils etc. Plenty of things to keep the kids entertained - pool table, table tennis and the indoor basketball upstairs was a hit! Not to mention the waterfront literally at your back door - complete with friendly ducks! We were also grateful to be able to use the paddle board.

The only negative thing to mention (and this is minor and didn't really interfere with the enjoyment of our break) would be there was only heating in the kitchen area and main bedroom so quite cold in the other bedrooms at night.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay. The sunsets were truly spectacular from the deck area. Julie, the host, was very helpful, accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Definitely recommend this property.
