The Space

Fishtales is exclusively for couples (sorry kids) and its absolute waterfront position is truly unique on Smiths. There is no better location on the lake and your apartment adjoins a lakefront reserve--- very private. Prices quoted are for one couple in the "honeymoon suite" however a second luxury bedroom with ensuite can be added to your booking , if you would like to share your holiday with some friends. Just ask Steve for pricing details.

Guest Access

Fishtales is situated on the western side of Symes Bay on Smiths Lake (S (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), looking directly across the lake at Sandbar Beach. You can paddle across the lake to Sandbar for a swim in the surf in our complimentary kayaks or paddleboards or go fishing, swimming, waterskiing and sunbaking on the beach right in front of your boutique apartment , no need to drive anywhere if you dont want to---its all right here. Boat hire is also available from the Frothy Coffee Boatshed just a few minutes away. As guests you have in your apartment, Foxtel , Netflix, free wifi, TV and dvd movies for those indoor times. Our guests can paddle across the lake to one of the best , uncrowded beaches on the coast.-- white sand and beautiful water and often you will be the only ones on the beach,----so hard to find these days.

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts, Steve and Kaz are onsite if you need any assistance or advice during your stay, but your holiday here can be as private as you want it to be.

The Neighborhood

Smiths Lake is quite unique as it is a salt water lake, but it remains isolated from the ocean for most of the time by Sandbar beach, this provides us with a beautiful, tideless saltwater habitat for all forms of watersport and wildlife. You can paddle across the lake to Sandbar for a swim in the surf in our complimentary kayaks or paddleboards or go fishing, swimming, waterskiing and sunbaking on the beach right in front of your boutique apartment , no need to drive anywhere if you dont want to---its all right here. Boat hire is also available from the Frothy Coffee Boatshed just a few minutes away.

Getting Around

For the night out or when you don't feel like cooking ,the area has two clubs and several restaurants and take-aways, all within a short drive or you can be picked up and then, dropped back at "Fishtales" after your night out, by the club's courtesy buses.

Other Things to Note

The apartment has local TV, Foxtel IQ, Netflix, DVD and WiFi and two queen sized, air conditioned bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. (as previously stated, quoted price indications from the website are for the "Honeymoon" suite only--Check with Steve if you require accomodation for two couples.)

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
