Please note due to us offering later departure times we therefore do not accept any incoming bookings on the day of an outgoing booking. Unlike high turnover rentals we prefer 6-7 days notice prior to booking. This allows time for a thorough detail cleaning of cottage and posting out a directional map, especially interstate. We cannot guarantee accommodation given short notice. We limit bookings to a minimum of 2 nights off-peak and 5 nights peak. We limit persons staying over to a maximum of 4 persons and reserve the right to decline bookings.
1. A very clean and tidy, nicely fitted-out holiday house. Fully self-contained.
2. The most amazing outlook to live for with that special waterfront WOW factor.
3. A very quiet and peaceful location with a private and elevated outlook.

IMPORTANT: Whilst the lake is a joy to behold in all weather conditions, like all natural waterways the lake is subject to changes in weather. Calm water can change suddenly and guests with boats should take note of local weather forecasts.
Clearview Cottage is located in the village of Sunshine on the southern shores of Lake Macquarie (near Morisset, NSW), just 70 minutes easy drive on the M1 expressway north from Hornsby.
Clearview is a testament that the very first holiday houses on the Lake acquired the best waterfront locations and is positioned forward of other houses giving you a unrestricted 180-degree Northerly outlook and is just 5 metres to the water's edge.
Your holiday house is private, quiet, with a sturdy shared jetty with all-round rubber buffer, deep water, sandy shore and is complimented with a pleasant north-easterly breeze in summer and enjoys the warm sun on the main front covered north-facing deck all day in winter.
The cottage is elevated and takes advantage of the outstanding open water outlook with the living, dining and kitchen areas all overlooking the lake through tinted windows.
Clearview is simply furnished yet very comfortable with TWO bedrooms, both with a double width- queen length bed. Two single beds are located separately and ideally located for that anytime nap. There is a modern fully-fitted kitchen with all the homely inclusions, sensor lighting, a wired smoke alarm, ceiling fans in all bedrooms, a bath-shower combo with toilet and another separate toilet.
There are two generous size decks covering approx 30+ square metres, with regulation-height safety fence with a gate at stairs.
There are two digital TVs. One in living area and the other in main bedroom. There is an assortment of complimentary DVDs, a large library of books, some CDs and and a separate kiddies' play corner. (A recent addition is the upgrading of the boat shed fitted out as a kiddies' play area, a place to dry swimmers or a place to just chill out). A leather lounge suite with two recliners completes the picture.


The lake is your backyard and is perfect for any water activity with unrestricted open water and nearest landfall up to 1 kilometre away. Complimentary binoculars are provided.
A convenient and very modern new shopping centre is just a 5-minute drive away with Coles, take-aways, post office, a motel bottle shop with bistro, cafes, restaurants and a variety of other shops and services.
A wide and non-congested boat ramp is just 300 metres away and is part of a very large level grassed park, an opportunity for the bigger kids to kick a ball. The park has toilets, provision for cleaning fish near the boat ramp, plenty of shade and an undercover electric barbeque. A newly constructed play area has just been completed. Proceeding past this play area to the end of the park leads onto a well constructed, sign-posted walking track. A 30-minute stroll brings you to a lookout on the northern tip of the bay.
Clearview is just 45 minutes from the renowned Hunter Valley Wine District. Relaxing on a deck with a glass or two after a day out, watching the yachts glide by or after dinner checking out the Milky Way is indeed memorable. A feature are the late Friday afternoon and weekend sailing regattas.


Consider what awaits you. . . a fully self-contained house. . . close to Sydney, coastal and regional centres. . . generous arrival-departure times. . . right on the water with an amazing north-facing outlook. . . two generous size decks. . . a boat shed converted into a kiddies' play area enabling parents to see and hear the children playing whilst being at arms-length from them . . . a very picturesque, exceptionally clean and comfortable Aussie Waterfront with owners who want your repeat business.
