About the property

Casa Bianca on the lake is a comfortable, well equipped 3 bedroom air conditioned waterfront reserve cottage resting on a very quiet part of glorious Lake Macquarie. The home is beautifully situated for you to take advantage of the long lake sunsets and afternoons by the water in the shade of the majestic gum trees.

After you drive onto the F3 freeway there is just one traffic light to hold you up on the easy 55 minute drive to your waterfront paradise

A feature of the cottage is the large undercover deck with outdoor setting where you can relax and enjoy the lake views in the cool breeze or you may dine on the fish you have just caught and cooked on the outdoor BBQ.

The property has a large gently sloping lawn down to the lakes edge that has easy water access for boating and other water sports. There is a small boat ramp just 50m from the cottage or you can use the main boat ramp with large jetty, fenced sea pool, and BBQ facilities just 3 minutes drive away.

The split level house with spacious cathedral ceilings sleeps up to seven people (recommended for 6 adults). The master bedroom has a queen bed with a large built in wardrobe. While the second bedroom has a double bed with a slide out trundle and a small desk. Please note trundle is not suitable for an adult. The third bedroom has a single bed and a slide out trundle bed. The upstairs area also has a separate toilet and bathroom with large bath and separate shower.

The downstairs consists of an open plan living area with comfortable lounges to relax after a day enjoying the water. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of appliances and cookware and combined with a large Kleenmaid gas cook top with double oven, you will be able to cook up a storm. There is a dining area next to the kitchen for easy meals. There is also a new 2nd bathroom with shower and toilet. The laundry has washing, drying and ironing facilities.

Stunning Lake Macquarie is Australia's largest inland salt water lake; we are nestled on the serene southern shores of the lake, at the northern end of the NSW Central Coast. From Casa Bianca Lake House you can take advantage of many activities including, sailing, water skiing, wake boarding, canoeing, and fishing. It is the perfect location to relax with the family, or just getaway for a romantic weekend.

We provide a small "tinny" row boat for you to paddle around the lake and a 3 seater Canadian canoe. We provide life jackets as well as an anchor, oars and paddles. Or you can bring your own boat and tie off in front of the cottage!

Casa Bianca is only 5 minutes stroll to the local shops which include two takeaways, coffee shop, post office, chemist, newsagent, bottle shop and a well stocked general store with bait and fuel.

Acceptance of pets is entirely at the discretion of the owners and will be assessed for each booking.


Thankyou to all the testimonials from the previous guests ( a few shown below). Look forward to talking with you in the future .... Regards Richard and Marrianne

****We have had the pleasure of staying at Casa Bianca at Lake Macquarie twice now. The house is waterfront with a big back lawn for kids to play on or just laze around on.

The view from the back veranda is picture perfect and the tranquillity can’t help but seep into your body when you look out onto the lake. You well and truly know you’ve left the City behind.

The boys loved the canoe and surf ski, which was a welcome change to seeing them with their heads in their electronic gadgets.

The house is very well equipped with board games, books and DVDs. In fact everything you need to spend time together.

I found that Casa Bianca is better equipped in the kitchen department than most holiday houses with lots of cutlery, crockery, cook and glassware, so you can actually cook a meal just like at home.

Another bonus is the helpfulness of the hosts. They know the area well and are very generous with their advice on where to shop, what to see and where to eat.

For anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet spot in a well equipped house, I can definitely recommend this holiday house and location. In fact I’m certain you too will visit more than once. Sophie Robertson January 2014

**** Our stay at Casa Bianca with our children and grandchildren for Easter 2013 was so very enjoyable. The house is modern and with every convenience for a wonderful quiet family holiday. All linen, utensils and ammenities were in good order and very clean. When we were'nt fishing or boating we went for walks along the beautiful shores of Lake Macquarie enjoying the perfect peace and quiet away from bustling city life. The well kept lawn from the house to the waterfront was so nice for the children to play outside on and the sandy foreshore was a bonus. Our grandsons aged 9 & 13 enjoyed learning to row in the dinghy provided and loved fishing off the nearby jetty. There was so much natural beauty surrounding us it was good to see the boys enjoying the simple things of life away from their digital games etc. We are all looking forward to the next time we stay at Casa Bianca and watch the sunset on the lake from the deck of the house(where we seemed to spend most of our time). The little village shops have everything you need so you can just walk down for provisions and need not think of leaving the peaceful hamlet of Mannering Park. From Pamela April 2013

**** This was truly a very memorable holiday home! Our hosts were beautiful in terms of their welcoming advice and helps. The home is absolutely beautiful! With a spacious backyard, and under cover patio, the view can be enjoyed in rain hail or sunshine! With the affordable rate, this was the best place in terms of cost effectiveness in the lake macq! From Ali March 2013

**** We've just spent a lovely week at "Casa Bianca"- and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found the home to be well-presented, clean and comfortable, and situated in a lovely, quiet location- well suited for families. We enjoyed relaxing with a cuppa at the outdoor setting, overlooking the beautiful reserve and lake; and especially loved the little sandy beach and seats by the water's edge- perfect for wading, swimming, boating, or just sitting. Casa Bianca had everything my family wanted. We were all disappointed to have to leave and are looking forward to our next stay. From Cathy January 2013

Our 4th amazing stay at Casa Bianca!

  • 5 of 5

Another amazing stay at Casa Bianca - this time with four generations of family! The raining start to the week didnt deter us from enjoying ourselves; the lake was beautiful and warm and then we enjoyed some games on the beautiful outdoor verandah. When the sun finally appeared we went for lovely long walks along the reserve. It was lovely to just be able to relax and not have to go anywhere (unless we wanted to). Fun was had by all and we we all disappointed when the end of the week came. We look forward to returning again next Christmas, if not before. We'd highly recommend this place, not just for families, but also for couples wishing for a peaceful, tranquil getaways (as we have done here many times).
