What a haven! John and Elizabeth’s home is truly one of a kind. They have created a little oasis for themselves and the guests that are lucky enough to stay on their property. The property is cosy and comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing stay! We loved how eco conscious everything was and would absolutely recommend staying to anybody!

John welcomed us on arrival and showed us around the property. Very comfortable, private and homely with all the amenities we required and a very eclectic book selection. A definite "find" for our stays in Newcastle.

The location is very convenient to the shops and the lake. It is hidden from the main road and is very private. We loved being surrounded by nature. Great place for a family with young kids. We had an amazing time at this accommodation. Thank you Elizabeth and John, you both are fantastic hosts!

Best find, you can’t go past this
I would highly recommend this property to anyone travelling to the region. Prior to our arrival we had clear communication from John with details for our arrival as we would be coming in late. The property has everything you need and more. I enjoyed having our own space, yes it is joined onto the back of the house connected by a door, but we heard nothing and had our own entry. The property was very spacious and had everything. A full kitchen with condiments, cereals and fresh milk. The lounge was full of books, videos and movies. So much to do, with so little time. Lounge was very comfy to sit back and watch TV. The bedrooms were spacious with their own fan/heating and electric blankets. The bathroom was huge with spa bathtub. Wished I had time to use it. Their was also a laundry and an outside patio area with table/chairs. The property is located on 2 acres with beautiful gardens and a pool you could use when warm. I found this accommodation so peaceful and with everything there, we really didn’t need to go anywhere. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. Great value and thank you John.

Relaxing and quiet with fantastic amenities - perfect for a family of 4 or a couple. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the pool, large grounds to explore and cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen or outdoor BBQ. Beautiful big bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Close to shopping, dining out and Lake MacQuarie.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location
Gorgeous cottage surrounded by a stunning landscaped garden. It felt like we were deep in the forest. It was so peaceful and pretty all around. Inside the house was immaculate and very cosy. Everything you need and more! When we arrived John was there to greet us and show us around. John was very friendly and helpful. There was even fresh milk in the fridge and little cupcakes for a sweet welcome :-) We will definitely be back!
