Property Description

FREE WIFI. Sand, Surf and Fun right at your front door! This beautifully presented cottage is directly opposite stunning Blacksmiths Beach, the Swansea Blacksmiths Surf Lifesaving Club and is also a short walk to the local attraction known as "Grannys Pool" (a safe swimming area for younger children). 

With a playground also situated in the park across the road, as well as BBQ and picnic areas you will be assured your kids will be fully entertained - making this a great holiday for parents too! The property is fully fenced for your peace of mind and there is plenty of lawn for your kids to play outside and enjoy the sunshine. There is even a games room in the garage with TV and lounges and a large book collection for the avid reader.

Walk into the property and you will immediately feel relaxed and in holiday mode. The living area is decorated tastefully in aqua tones with a coastal theme and included comfortable lounge, flat screen TV and a sound system for your enjoyment. It is a bright and airy space, just perfect for you to relax after a great day on the water.

Featuring two bedrooms this home can sleep up to 5 guests. The master bedroom has a Queen sized bed and the second bedroom includes a tri-bunk (double bed on the bottom and single bed on top). The Master bedroom has a ceiling fan and all beds feature quality bedding for your sleeping comfort.


The kitchen is modern, with a stainless steel fridge, stove, microwave oven and smeg toaster and kettle and all the facilities needed for your home away from home. The dining table is situated close to the kitchen to make entertaining easy. This area is also air conditioned for your comfort.

The bathroom is also modern and features a bath, shower and vanity and laundry facilities are situated at the rear of the property. The fenced backyard with BBQ, outdoor dining table and hammock is the perfect space to soak up the salty sea air and unwind. 


Lake Macquarie is well known for great fishing, 4WDing, sailing and also the best surfing beaches around.

Blacksmiths is conveniently located on the seaside of Eastern Lake Macquarie, between the lakeside towns of Swansea and Belmont. It still retains the relaxed beach-side village vibe of yesteryear, however the necessities of modern life are still close by. 

This wonderful home is close to local shops, and only 20 minutes to Charlestown Square (cinema and major shopping outlets and restaurants)


PETS: This home is pet friendly on application, please send us a message with information on your dog before booking, including the breed and if it is an outdoor dog. We will then check with the owner and get back to you.
