Overview

About the property

Absolute lakeside house with private jetty

Welcome to Lakeside @ Summerland Point, an absolute waterfront gem set amongst landscaped gardens & lawns, only 1 hour north of Wahroonga on Lake Macquarie.

There is no public access to the waterfront, it's all yours.

Stunning views of the lake greet you as you move through the open plan living area to the north facing covered balcony with gas BBQ & table setting.

Lake Macquarie, the largest salt water lake in Australia, is right at your doorstep. Bring your boat & tie up to our private jetty. Only launch once, the boat ramp is 2 minutes drive away. Enjoy fishing, water skiing or cruising around this beautiful lake. Boats can be hired at Cams Wharf. Otherwise take a paddle in our kayaks, 1 double & 1 single, fish or swim from the jetty or simply relax, soaking up the tranquillity on the balcony overlooking the lake or on the lakeside hammock.

CHECK IN & CHECK OUT ARE AT MIDDAY, ALTHOUGH SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY, WE CAN OFTEN OFFER LATER CHECK OUTS.

WEEKEND AND LONG WEEKEND BOOKINGS ALWAYS INCLUDE A 4PM CHECK OUT ON THE SUNDAY, OR LAST DAY.

We do offer discounts for last minute bookings (less than 4 weeks away), please ask.

Catherine Hill Bay, our favourite local beach, is also popular with surfers. There are 3 parking areas – first at the Surf Club, then just before the hill & lastly beside the cemetery. The northern end is our preferred end. It is ever changing with the tide & weather & we enjoy swimming there. There is also a rock platform to explore. Take thongs or similar as it is rough underfoot. The southern end is patrolled by life savers in season. The heritage listed Catho Pub is a popular place to visit. They have live music on Sunday afternoons plus Saturday afternoons in summer.

Munmorah State Conservation Area, park entry fees apply. Frazer Beach is another favourite beach, patrolled in season & we love walking along the rocks to Gravelly Beach ideally at a lowish tide, again take thongs. The view from Wybung Head is spectacular. There is also nudist Birdie Beach. .

Budgewoi Beach, encompassing also Birdie Beach to the north & Lakes Beach to the south- patrolled, is a really long beach that is lovely to stroll along.

Summerland Sporties has a bar & restaurant, it is walkable,1.7km, although the club does have a courtesy bus. The Gwandalan Bowling Club has a restaurant called Azure and also has a free courtesy bus.

Summerland Point Food Works supermarket on Cams Boulevard, just a short walk/drive from the house, has pretty much everything you may need, including a deli, BBQ chickens, fruit & vegetables, meat, newspapers, ice creams & a DVD movie kiosk. It is open 7 days a week 7am until 8pm. There is a lovely homewares shop, bottle shop, bakery, hairdresser & post office at Summerland Point.

We went back as a family for the second time and again the view took our breath away.

The house is beautifully decorated. Comfortable to stay and they have lots of little things to make the stay even better. Thanks for all the nice, well looked after games and puzzles.

Well equipped kitchen, good pans and knives are appreciated. So peaceful! We will be back as everything was great! Thank you!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The House was perfect for our Aust Day long weekend getaway. The jetty was great for the boat, the ‘big boys’ enjoyed the fishing. The kitchen and BBQ was well equipped, and back yard overlooking the lake was beautiful, ladies enjoyed some wine while the kids enjoyed kayaking. A bit of a drive from the beach and shops, but once you’ve settled in there’s no reason to leave.

Great house with a stunning location. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The house is extremely well equipped and has everything you could possibly want. It felt like home as soon as we arrived.

Close to the boat ramp we were able to moor our boat at the jetty at the front of the the house and enjoy all our water activities. Would definitely recommend as a great holiday location for the family.

Apart from just relaxing & taking in the view from the back veranda, on top of the boat shed or lazing in the hammock by the water’s edge, there is plenty to do in & around Summerland Point.

Fishing from the jetty (there is some basic gear in the down stairs games room)

Take out our kayaks, we have a single & a double. Try fishing whilst you are out. Bonny Boy creek is just off to the right, past the last house. It has a fallen tree to paddle under & is fun for kids to explore. You can’t get very far in though. Another paddle destination is round to the boat ramp area at Summerland Point to go get an ice cream.

Bring your own boat, there is a ramp in Summerland Point & a jetty in front of the house to tie up to. The jetty is shared with one neighbour, so please only tie up on our side. Boat hire is available at Cams Wharf & Pelican.

Board games, jig saw puzzles, large selection of DVDs
