Great location, pretty views. Plenty of room for large families. Wonderful balcony for meals. I suggest Caves Beach for an outing, the caves and rock pools are beautiful. The RSL at Swansea was a good place for a dinner outing.

A lovely place to stay right on the shore of Lake Macquarie.

The location was amazing!!! Our family had an unforgettable Christmas at nords warf. It was nice and quiet and if your bringing a boat, you are in front of the best part of lake Macquarie ( no sand banks, protected areas for water sports and great fishing spots). The sunsets over the lake whilst sitting on the deck were magic! The neighbours either side are some of the nicest people :) We will definately be back again. Thanks Jane!

This large dwelling is situated in an idyllic setting directly on the lake front. The view is beautiful and the sound of the gently lapping waves is very soothing. The house is large and the upstairs is open and full of light. The internal stairs are not really suitable for anybody with a disability and this is also reflected in the upstairs shower over the bath. There is a walk in shower however downstairs. The kayaks left for our use looked great but we didn’t have time to use them. All in all a wonderful place to spend a week either relaxing or preparing for a wedding!
