Description
Dora Creek absolute waterfront is uniquely positioned with direct deep water creek access immediately to the front of the property. Ideal for boating enthusiasts and water lovers with the ability to reverse your boat trailer directly into the water from the property and park on the jetty for the rest of your stay.

A comfortable 80 minute drive from the Sydney CBD this light and airy 4-bedroom property exudes charm and style. Totally refurbished with brand new appliances (Smeg/Bosch/Miele/Westinghouse) it is the position, décor and smart design and furnishing that makes this stay an experience to while away the year that was.

North facing with its sun-drenched aspect, light summer breeze and enjoying an absolute waterfront position, the owner has thoughtfully designed features that are made to use and enjoy.

There is a stunning waterfront bar area made from recycled timbers sourced from Homebush Bay Wharf where you can sit, eat, fish or just simply relax. Perfect for an afternoon tipple. Dip your toes in the water from the elegant old world style wharf made from freshly hewn hardwood timber dressed with linseed oil. Moor your boat right here before heading out to Lake Macquarie with its access to the ocean. There is a boat launch 200 metres away.

This home enjoys a large raised north facing terrace to maximise the views that extend upriver with its extended position providing beautiful water views from the large spacious open living room and dining area and including the kitchen.

The stunning outdoor terrace contains another recycled breakfast/cocktail bar area made from recycled Norfolk pine wharf timbers that floated down the river one lucky day. There is a beautiful, distressed timber al fresco table and chairs for your further enjoyment and a Webber BBQ to maximise its outdoor utility.

The furnishing inside includes a large 7 seater lounge, brand new smart tv and period pieces that hark back to a French Colonial style furnishing tasteful, elegant and somehow post modern. There are hints of Indochina and St Tropez with the special lighting that occurs on the terrace at night and yet there is a very Australian feature cast iron stove coffee table and other designer pieces that just work.

The kitchen is styled in a Provence countryside manner with all the features you need - all the whilst enjoying water views whilst cooking up a storm.

There are 4 large double and queen bedrooms that cater for 8 people. There are 2 separate bathrooms, garage parking for 2 cars and under the terrace is a large undercover entertainment area and/or parking area for another 3 vehicles and/or your boat.

There is a small village a short 5 minute walk containing everything you need including a superb butcher, fresh seafood merchant, bottle shop, general store and a great takeaway for those days when you cannot be bothered cooking

Note: The house is 200m to the Rail Line which does not usually bother most people. Trains run 2 x 2 times/hourly until 8pm then intermittently through the night then again first thing in the mornings. We have personally stayed in the property and don't notice but we feel that we need to mention this.

*Important Advice: Any guest wishing to fish in the waters of Lake Macquarie must comply with the relevant laws as defined in the Fisheries Management Act 1994. This includes (but is not limited to), holding a fishing licence where necessary, knowing and respecting bag & size limits and not fishing in protected waters. Please note that many areas of Lake Macquarie house Razor Clams - please don't take risks and always wear solid footwear when walking through water or playing on shoreline rocks. Any guest intending to use crab pots are reminded to not place them within the vicinity of any moored vessel on the Lake. Pots can move in lake tidal waters & the wind and can cause stressful and extremely costly damage to our neighbours boats. Crab pot lines easily become wrapped around props and keels as well as mooring lines. When this happens, it is not a simple matter of removing the crab pot line, it can cost up to $20000 in repairs to the damaged equipment on the boat. Guests may be held liable against a damage claim so a clear reminder to be wary of placement and at all times to respect neighbouring property.

Jetty Access: This property allows guest access to a shared jetty, please be respectful of all neighbours with whom this jetty is shared. Fishing equipment (rod/reels/buckets/bait etc) are not be left unattended on the jetty. Guests are advised to not leave their boats or water craft moored at the jetty overnight due to changes in the wind which can cause damage to boats and the jetty. Guests do so at their own risk and may be held liable for any damage caused to neighbouring property/watercraft.

The Important Stuff -
Bedroom 1 - queen
Bedroom 2 - queen
Bedroom 3 - double
Bedroom 4 - double

Pets Allowed: please note the yard is open to the waterfront and the side road. There is no boundary fence. Guests are to maintain the safety of their pets at all times.

Important note for party planners:
Unfortunately this is not the property for you. It is in a quiet retiree neighbourhood, so a hens/bucks/schoolies type celebration is not appropriate. We can easily determine if the house rule of “No parties or events” is disrespected, and this means additional charges and/or eviction will apply, which everyone wants to avoid. If you are unsure, please enquire before booking.

How We Price: The booking price is based on a minimum number of guests. Any guests above this number are chargeable on a per person/per night rate. The system will automatically calculate the correct rate when you enter the required number of guests. Reductions in guest numbers are non-refundable.

Arrival Details: Access to the property is made easy for you. We will send you an access code just before 2pm on your arrival day via SMS and you will use this code for the duration of your stay.

Linen: 1 set of full bed linens and 1 bath towel per person are supplied. Guests may wish to bring extra towels depending on the length of their stay. Pool/Lake/Beach towels are BYO

Guest Amenities: We are Eco-Friendly - to help reduce wastage, we supply a single bottle of 3in1 shampoo/conditioner/body wash in all showers. In addition, guests are advised to bring their own personal preferred bathroom products/amenities.

Pets: Pets are welcome at this property on completion of the below standard pet regulations in writing finalised prior to arrival:
Guests supply pet bedding, food bowls & disposable waste bags.
Pets are strictly prohibited from being on any furniture, rugs, carpeted areas, beds & bedding/linen inside & outside the property.
At no time are pets to be left alone, locked inside a property. Your pet must remain in your possession at all times.
Guests bring pets at their own risk understanding we can commit to the validity of fencing, access to natural waterways, rural properties pest control with chemicals and surrounding neighbours pets or livestock.
A Bond will be charged for any damage caused by pets and any non-adherence of the pet regulations.

Fires and Firewood: Internal wood fireplaces and outdoor fire pits only operate after the NSW Easter School Holidays up to before the NSW September School Holidays in line with NSW state fire restrictions. Please note we will normally supply enough firewood, kindling & fire-starters for between 1-2 nights of your stay. For guests wishing to have additional fires, we suggest BYO Firewood, Kindling, and Starters which can be easily purchased from the local service stations.

No Party Policy: All reservations operate under a Strict No-Party & Non-Excessive Noise Policy as prescribed in the NSW Short-Term Letting Legislation and Local Council Laws. This property is in a Residential Area. Failure to comply can put the security bond into jeopardy and may lead to police-assisted eviction and/or extra charges being levied. We hate to have to note this, but the reality is that so far this year we have had to evict 3 groups for overstacking/bad/anti-social behavior.

Extra Guests / Visitors: The number of people nominated on your booking is the maximum number of people that are allowed to be on the property at any one time, including visitors. Visitors may be requested and if approved must be approved in writing with Weekenda staff. Simply put, if Mum and Dad want to come over for a BBQ then we are likely to approve. If 10 extra people want to stop by we are unlikely to approve, which could put your booking at risk. We will always try to be reasonable with reasonable people within property constraints and House Rules.

Cameras and Noise Monitoring: Please note that it is highly likely that we have installed a WiFi Security Camera at the Front Entrance (and sometimes rear of the property) We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2022/2023

Guest Registration / ID Check : Weekenda requires every guest to complete and sign an electronic guest registration prior to arrival which will ask for photo ID i.e. a copy of your Drivers Licence or Passport. The primary booker will also be required to complete a list with the guests names and actual mobile numbers. In the event we are unable to reach the primary booker, it is very important we can get a hold of other guests. These documents will be deleted after your departure. Access Codes are only released to Registered and Verified Guests.

Insurance: As always, but ever so more due to recent times, we strongly encourage any holidaymakers to obtain a very inexpensive 3rd Party Domestic Travel Insurance Policy to cover you for all manners of matters which may restrict travel. This is particularly helpful for things like Hunter Valley Concert cancellations, Covid or Medical and Other Emergencies for which we don't provide refunds, and anything which falls under our standard Terms & Conditions irrespective of the reason. We suggest reviewing policies with 'Cover-More' or 'Travel Insurance Direct' or 'Insureandgo'

This property is managed by Weekenda, a licensed real estate. Weekenda staff are available 7 days a week to assist from your initial enquiry through to your departure and everything in between.

We look forward to having you stay with us.
