About the property

Ella's is the spectacular beachfront apartment in the beautiful Merewether area. This fully renovated 2 bedroom apartment features solid blackbutt floors, modern furnishings and air conditioning throughout. Come and experience all that a beachfront apartment has to offer.

The apartment has a large wrap around balcony to enjoy the stunning beach views with direct access to the balcony from both the lounge and main bedrooms. Wake up early to catch the stunning sunrises or just relax on the balcony throughout the day and watch the world drift by. A north-northeast aspect ensures you have postcard views and enjoy the afternoon summer breezes.

The main lounge / dining area features plenty of space in a modern layout with 127cm LED TV, blue ray player, Apple TV and a sound bar to compliment your entertainment. There is a collection of fiction and non fiction books for your enjoyment.

We also have a yoga mat, sports roller, exercise band and pilates and yoga dvd's so you can stretch and exercise in the apartment or balcony whilst taking in the ocean views.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed with a selection of pillows and a feather/down doona and the second bedroom has two single beds. Both rooms have builtin robes, separate climate controlled air conditioning systems and all linen supplied. A small safe is also provided for your convenience for any small valuable items, passports, etc you wish to leave at the apartment when down the beach or out having fun. The main bedroom also features a wall mounted TV/DVD player with remote so you can enjoy TV or a movie in the privacy of your own room while the kids watch a movie from a selection of kids movies in the loungeroom.

The bathroom features a relaxing spa bath and separate shower. Some toiletries are available during your stay and a selection of hand made soaps and creams are also available from time to time for purchase to remind you of your stay.

The kitchen features granite benchtops with modern appliances to ensure if you decide to use the kitchen it is easy and simple. An expresso coffee machine and some capsules are provided for you to enjoy a coffee on the balcony watching the world go by. We also offer a light Breakfast Pack at the extra cost of $7/person/night. This includes additional coffee capsules, Orange Juice, Bacon, eggs fresh from our own backyard chooks(when they are laying) and fresh bread. Some light breakfast goodies are supplied for your stay free of charge. Check with the owner before you go shopping.

A new addition to Ella's is our own honey straight from our very own beehive in Merwether. You can try some while you are with us and purchase your very own to take home with you.

There is also a small laundry off the kitchen with washing machine and dryer if you need to wash clothes during your stay. We do not supply laundry detergent sorry.

The apartment is designed equally to suit a couples getaway or a family of 4 with loads of activities such as playgrounds and skate parks for the kids all within walking distance. The two single beds in bedroom 2 come with custom boy or girl sheets and doona covers to your requirements.

The area boasts the largest ocean pool in the southern hemisphere, beautiful restaurants, cafes and bars all within 15 minutes walk from the apartment. The Merewether Surf Club 'Blue Door' café, Merewether Surfhouse restaurant and cafes, and Darby St and the Junction Restaurants, cafes and bars are just some of the areas close by.

If you don't want to walk there are buses nearby or taxis are available locally. Some attractions such as the Hunter Valley wineries may require car transport unless you want to do this as part of an organised tour.

Minimum stay is two nights or three nights on public holiday weekends.

Minimum longer stays may apply during school holidays and peak periods.

A minimum $100- cleaning fee + Stayz Fee applies to all bookings. Cleaning fees may be greater for peak periods and weekends.

The security deposit is usually returned within 72 hrs of departure unless it is determined that damage has occurred to the property or items are found missing.

This apartment is within a small complex occupied predominantly by owners and their right to privacy and quiet enjoyment is something that we insist on during your stay.






This apartment and its views will leave you amazed from the moment you walk through the door and we look forward to welcoming you in person to our piece of paradise.

Excellent getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and the owner (Mark) was very friendly and accommodating. He'd customised a list of things to do for us and even had some goodies in the fridge to welcome us.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two teen children) enjoyed a fabulous break at Ella's. Mark and Sam were excellent hosts and provided everything you could need, plus more. Milk in the fridge and a few bits and pieces for brekkie were a welcome relief. Along with that lovey crisp white for balcony time on arrival. The location is fabulous, not far to the beach access and right on the Bathers Walk which we enjoyed daily. I would highly recommend this property.

Fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We had an great stay at Ella's despite the terrible weather. Mark was a very generous host. He made us feel very welcome. His gift of garden produce , eggs from their chooks and kitchen staples was very generous and well appreciated. We loved waking up and watching the early morning beach life from the comfort of our bed. Ella's is a wonderful place to stay ,we'd love to go back.

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this apartment. It has everything you need (including coffee machine) and is fitted out to impeccable standards. We have travelled extensively but have rarely encountered a more unobtrusively helpful and considerate host, Mark even left us with a personalised welcome with suggestions of what’s on in Newcastle that might be of interest (and was) and provided provisions on arrival which was a lovely touch. The views of Bar Beach and Merewether were sensational and the apartment is very handy to everything. I could not recommend Ella's more highly as a tourist or business accommodation.
