Property Description

FREE WiFi. Quaint, colourful, cozy and quirky, The Broken Oar will delight couples, small families or artists on retreat. Situated at the stunning Pelican foreshore, you will be holidaying at one of Lake Macquarie's most popular tourist spots. Enjoy quiet strolls along the sparkling water's edge, attend the bustling local Markets or enjoy the lovely children's playground and public BBQ spots. There are some great sandy swimming spots or you can even launch your boat at the new boat ramp.

If it's adventure that you are seeking, then you have the choice of parachuting, boating, golfing, fishing, surfing, shopping and dining all literally on your doorstep, or you can choose to just relax and watch the world go by.
The home itself is a delightfully welcoming, renovated fishing cottage. As soon as you open the door to the Broken Oar, you will feel instantly on holiday! The cottage is nautically themed throughout and takes you back in time, whilst still providing all modern amenities.

The charming lounge room has both new air conditioning and heating installed and a large smart tv, so you can enjoy endless movies on quiet evenings. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and room for your holiday clothes, whilst the second bedroom has king single bunk beds that are great for kids or adults. There is also a futon in the dining room in case you need some extra space.

The cheerful kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast, or you may decide to cook outside on the gas BBQ, under the frangipani tree. There is even a fully screened, outdoor area you can use for alfresco dining, or just the perfect secluded spot to read a book and enjoy a mug of tea.

The bathroom comes with a small bath, just right for soaking sandy kids in before bed and all towels etc are provided. A full laundry is also included, with everything you will need.

The appealing garden is flat and fully fenced. There are colourful flowers pots and the whole area is magically illuminated at night time by hundreds of fairy lights. There is plenty of room to park your boat (even a big one!) in the wide, clear driveway.

The Broken Oar has added benefits that it is less then 100M to the lake, has free WiFi and a light filled study nook where you can catch up on work or writing whilst and is dog friendly (on application) with a fully fenced yard once the front gate is closed, so for those families wanting to bring their fur-kids this home would be ideal!

“Have an old fashioned holiday in heaven”
