Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location at Port Stephens above One Mile Beach. The veranda sits in a perfect position to take in the scenery or read a book. Our 2 boys enjoyed access to the patrolled beach below - 10 min walk down the hill through the bush. The house was clean and comfortable.

Perfect Spot for the Port Stephens Triathlon

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay while competing in the Port Stephens triathlon. The house overlooks the start line on One Mile Beach and also had a shared hot tub to soak our tired muscles after the race. We'll definitely book it again next year.

We had an incredible time! The place was extremely clean and well maintained. Having the option of the pool within the community was fantastic and loads of fun especially for night time swimming. The views were amazing, linen great and the BBQ was so clean! We really loved the place and will be back!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This property is a really special combination of excellent location with amazing views plus clean lined architecture. We stayed over the Easter break and we never gort sick of waking up to the amazing views and the sound of the waves. The elevated position that backs onto a national park makes for a really calm zen like stay. The house keeper and the facilities were also exceptional. We have stayed here a number of times and we are going back for the Queens Birthday long weekend.

Owner's Response: Simon loves the ocean views and also the western views and aspect of this property, particularly in the winter time. The short walk to One Mile Beach via a bush track from behind the property gives direct access to the beach. And the shared infinity edge pool is just a minutes walk.
