Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stay We thoroughly recommend staying with Helen and her delightful husband John in their amazing property. All our family, baby included, had a wonderful time. Very clean, great facilities, wonderful views, great breeze. Helen is the best chef you could find. She could easily open a restaurant. Dinner available for those who prefer good quality. We were very impressed with the gourmet world class cooking. Breakfast was beautiful too and varied each morning. Met some other wonderful people while we were there and are definitely planning a trip back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The hostess with the mostess! Helens on the Cove could not have made for a more perfect family getaway. The service was impeccable with friendly hosts, super comfortable beds and 5 star food. Helens cooking is incredible! And how could I not mention the priceless location with an unspoiled view and access to the water. Thank you for making our family holiday (and my birthday) one to remember!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stay and Hospitality!! My wife and I stayed in Helen's on the cove for a quiet getaway at the the North Arm Cove and we were very very happy that we chose to stay with Helen and John. The experience was fantastic and indeed very memorable. To the guests advantage; Helen loves to cook and that reflects in the taste, quality and generous portions of breakfast and meals that she makes... with a lot of love! John is a superb story teller :) and a warm host as well. The place in itself is very pleasant and cozy. Helen takes care of each and every small thing meticulously. We were lucky to get along with John on his boat and saw some friendly wild dolphins playing with our boat. Thank you John for that. It made our trip even more memorable! We didn't get a chance to have dinner with them, but I am more than certain that it would a very fulfilling one. We will definitely be back soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful place to stay The only bad thing about our stay was that it was for only 1 night - the accommodation, setting, hospitality and food were all excellent - we were made to feel very welcome and could see why Helen and John chose to live here with that lovely view. We have told our friends that if venturing to Port Stephens this is the place to stay and we hope to be back some time and see more of the area - and have a chance to use the kayak.
