"THE BEST B&B I've ever stayed in for a long time.
I was impressed by the look of the building, then Tina and John greeted us and made us feel very welcome. They showed us our room and it was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing the presentation and the food was full of surprises it was like having your breakfast in a 5 star hotel - I think this is even better. Tina and John such a nice couple and they are very helpful at all times and they know the area very well so they can give you lots of good tips on where to go and see if you are looking for something to do during your stay. Overall if anyone is looking for a romantic get away or somewhere to relax this is the place. You can be as active as you want or just relax and chill out.” – Trip Advisor – 4 Jan 10

LAKE MACQUARIE - CLOSE TO SYDNEY YET A WORLD AWAY.

LAKE Macquarie (Awaba) is a large coastal lagoon 1 ½ hours drive north of central Sydney via the F3. Dora Creek (Doree Doree) is a small village on the western shores. The nice thing is that few know about LAKE Macquarie (or Dora Creek) which makes it such a good destination for a quiet time away for just the two of you.

SUNDAY DRIVE around the scenic lake stopping at lookouts, cafes and galleries…

WATERFRONT WALK hand in hand along scenic nature reserve at your door…

HOSPITALITY:
Afternoon tea served on arrival... "Two giant slices of heavily frosted hummingbird cake, juicy figs, two vanilla melting moments and an enormous pot of English breakfast tea have my companion and I grinning from ear to ear."

Short walk or drive to a choice of RESTAURANTS. "...

GOURMET DINNER at Christina's Sun - Monby arrangement - 2 courses $50, 3 courses $70/person... "The meals, atmosphere and locality all add to this perfect romantic stay." ... "...and your culinary expertise is second to none."

.
GOURMET BREAKFAST with espresso coffee included in sunny cafe style lounge at a time to suit you, before a leisurely check out at MIDDAY.

"Breakfast at Christina's the following morning is something else - seasonal fruit salad, a neat presentation of yoghurt with a crispy sugar-iced wafer, fresh orange juice, tea and coffee and those eggs benedict. It looks and tastes terrific."... "...your coffee can embarrass professional coffee makers."

.
LAKE MACQUARIE "Lake Macquarie is largely undiscovered... But perhaps most surprising is that this glorious expanse of water... is virtually on Sydney's doorstep. It is less than an hour's drive from the city's northern fringes." - Sue Milne - The Australian.

In a busy world where even finding time to take a break can be a chore, it is nice to know there remain a few holiday treasures within two hours of the hustle and bustle..." - Bonny Symons-Brown - AAP - Mike Smith - DAILY TELEGRAPH - 26 March 2009.

"AMAZING  It was a great weekend away and exactly what we needed. By far the best hospitality of any B&B we have stayed at, John and Tina made us feel welcomed (without overcrowding us). They were very helpful; providing suggestions for things to do/places to eat and kindly arranged kayaks, dinner reservations etc for us. The mermaid room was very romantic! I loved the shower and double spa and of course the food was divine! I would definitely recommend staying at Christina's, you will love it!" - Trip Advisor.
