In the summer season- enjoy uninterrupted sea views great outdoor area, watch the dolphins play in the water below. and at night listen to the crashing waves and watch the wonderful sunsets from your own deck chair.

“Whataview” – aptly named by our friend Kaye – her first words when she walked through the house. It’s remained and keeps being repeated!

Our home has one of the most incredible uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. Set on Fisherman’s Bay cliff top we command magnificent views across the water to the sand dunes on Stockton and then all the way to the ships at anchor at Newcastle.

We are very private, no public access - nothing between you the water & the dolphins and whales who swim by regularly. They are so close its wonderful.

The whales are spotted from around from June to November. Past guests constantly report seeing many whales during their stay. "AMAZING!"

And if you are not there in the whale season not to worry we are always entertained by the many pods of dolphins that swim and play off the deck right in front of you.

There is also lots of bird life on the water and usually a few fishermen on the rocks below. Never a dull moment!

Our home is situated in one of the few places on the east coast of Australia where you can watch spectacular sunsets over the ocean.

After the sun goes down the lights of Newcastle and the ships moored off the coast emerge creating a wonderful night perspective.

Our home - We have just finished rebuilding our beach house. It was designed by award winning architect Diego Balagna. He has made the most of the views and the space. The eclectic décor is the result of the many trips we have had though India and Asia. We have tastefully and simply incorporated these items into our home. Each room has it's own specific design. We have also added a swimming pool to finish off our beautiful home.

The minute you walk in the front door the ocean greets you and this only gets better as you walk through the house to the huge outside deck (100 square meters). Built to maximize the stunning view and allow outdoor relaxing and entertaining.

This very large deck is a feature of the house it captures the total vista – sit there enjoying lunch or dinner on the outdoor setting or just on the deck chairs watching the world go by; there’s no better place to be especially at sunset.

The main bedroom also captures these lovely views; you can sit in bed with the floor to ceiling doors open, cup of tea in hand and watch the magnificent Pacific Ocean.

The lounge room at the front of the house captures the lovely breeze – great in the afternoon to escape the sun enjoying a book or just relaxing. This room has the TV for your enjoyment, we have also included Foxtel (Platinum package)This room in winter gets the morning sun.

Internet is also available ADSL-2 for those who need this service.

So if you want to..........

- dolphin watch with uninterrupted views

- enjoy all meals on the deck watching the ocean

- swim at a safe family beach a minute's walk away

- 4-wheel-drive on nearby Stockton beach (5 minutes),

- golf,

- or just idle the days away

- in a well maintained, clean, modernized beach cottage

- with no public access or road in between you & the ocean

This is for you!!!

We think it’s the best kept secret around.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Please note - If our property is unavailable when you enquire the agent that manages the property will direct you to other properties they have available in the area.

Local Attractions

Dolphin Cruise at Nelson Bay. Cruise around the Port Stephens area looking for Dolphins and Whales ( when in season). Cruises depart daily and most companies have a 99% sighting rate.

Take a 4WD to the beach or join one of the many tours available along Stockton beach and the dunes.

More Adventurous at Williamtown. Try the Quad bike over the sand hills and dunes or maybe a camel is more your style.

Two great golf courses - Nelson Bay and Horizons - both 10 mins drive. Pacific Dunes 20 mins away.

Oakdale Farm & Fauna World at Salt Ash is great for the family. Children can feed and/or nurse the babay animals, meet the Koalas or even milk a cow.

Toboggan Hill Park at Nelson Bay. Now there's more than just the popular Toboggan Run, why not try tha Model Plaster painting area with hundreds of models to choose from. Why not try the two kilometre long tractor train ride over the hill which takes about 30 minutes, stopping at the Giant Maze - 1000sq. metres. Not enough to do try the 19 hole mini golf, indoor rock climbing, radio controlled cars, video games and Krazy Karts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unforgettable We had such a lovely time in this property. It is a perfect place to relax. We were also lucky to see some dolphins one afternoon while we were having coffee on the decking. We will definitely have unforgettable memories at this place. The only let down was we ran out of gas 3 days before we left. It was very disappointing that the gas tanks were not checked before we arrived. Although the tanks were refilled the gas was not enough to last the whole lengh of our stay so we did not have hot water on our last day.
