Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful spot for an overnight getaway. The views are stunning! The little cabins are lovely, with everything you could want. Very private, and a great balcony to site and share a drink. The night sky is something to see on a clear night!

Would thoroughly recommend this place!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cute and cosy, exactly what we were after for a quiet weekend away. And those views were absolutely gorgeous. We wished we could have stayed longer

Peaceful and private cabin surrounded by nature and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely aaaaaamazing!!!!

As soon as you arrive the place welcome you with the beautiful and amazing view of Port Stephens. The front of the cabin faces the view. In the morning you can seat, drink tea or coffee while the sun warms you up while watching the view and birds that come close to you. In the evening you can sit and watch the wallabies that come to eat grass while you enjoy the beautiful colors of the sunset.

At night you just can seat outside with the lights off just to enjoy the sky full of stars or enjoy the great open fire that Doug and Kathy so nicely fire it up for us while having some drinks together. If you are braver than us, you can enjoy the hot spa. We preferred to use other facilities of the place instead but I am sure if it was a little bit warmer we have definitely had used it.

The cabin has everything you need and what is advertised on the page and pictures. We brought our food and cooked in the cabin. There are also Coles and restaurants like 10-15 minutes away drive. Nelson Bay is 45 minutes away from here but if you prefer much less touristic and crowded and more peaceful place, we recommend you to stay around Hawks Nest and Tea Gardens area. The beach is absolutely beautiful.

We recommended 100% and for sure we will come back. Thank you so much, Doug and Kathy, for all your hospitality!

Quaint cabin

  • 4 of 5

Daybreaks on Port Stephens has an idyllic outlook through bush to the water. There were amazing sunrises which you didn't need to get out of bed to see! There are possums, wallabies and birdlife in this peaceful place. The cabin is equipped with everything needed for a romantic getaway, but also only about 10 -15 minutes to Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest. Would definitely recommend.

Cute cabin with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean and has everything you need inside, but the best bit is sitting on the porch looking out to sea. Also enjoyed the spa very much. Kathy and Doug are lovely and will make you feel welcome.
