Magnificent 3-bedroom/2-bathroom house with SENSATIONAL BAY AND OCEAN VIEWS. Baywatch has just been FULLY RENOVATED. But we haven't yet increased the prices. So book NOW - it will never be this cheap again. BARGAIN, BARGAIN, BARGAIN

You can't say more than our guests' recommendations. So, word for word, here is one of our most recent Guest Book entries:

"Phil, thank you so much, you have an AMAZING house. Our stay was awesome - couldn't have been any better. Stunning views, beautifully decorated and delightful night breezes, it was absolutely spectacular. I give this house a 10/5 because it went way above and beyond what we expected. Unfortunately, the hard part is leaving the house because we enjoyed ourselves too much."'

This sensational 3-bedroom house sleeps 8 people - maximum of 6 adults features BAY & OCEAN VIEWS from all the living rooms, the library and the front balcony. It's luxury all the way with a huge eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, and enormous lounge room - all facing North for maximum sunshine winter warmth and summer cooling orientation. There's also a home-theatre room, and three big bedrooms 2 queen beds plus 2 sets of bonk beds 4 single beds - house sleeps up to 6 adults and 2 child - or fewer adults and more children. The master bedroom boasting a lavish ensuite with spa bath. Note: you are NOT renting individual rooms, YOU ARE RENTING THE ENTIRE TOP STOREY OF THE HOUSE and we never rent out the rest of the house while Baywatch is being rented.

Baywatch is about 15 minutes walk 3-minutes drive into the vibrant heart of Nelson Bay - close enough to enjoy the buzz but far enough to be quiet and tranquil. And it's about a 5-minute walk 1 minute drive to the closest beach.


As a guest of 'HOLLYWOOD', you will receive FREE vouchers giving you up to 20 discount on Whale Watching or Dolphin Watch Cruises; 15 off Spa and Beauty treatments at one of Nelson Bay's premier salons.

Magnificently furnished and delightfully decorated, this house is an absolute privilege to holiday in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location! Superb location and view.. Easy access to shops and the hub of the marina... The BBQ was a bit awkwardly located in an odd spot in the common area ( and not clean) instead of the balcony with the great view! Which was unusual! Also all the living areas have awesome views but the rooms are neat but are located at the back and look straight into a tall bamboo fence less than a metre away... House is just a few feet from the houses on either side, so whilst the owners have clearly stated about it not being a party house, and concern for keeping the noise down to minimise disturbance to neighbours, unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the neighbours won't be loud and noisy themselves! But that apart, Phil was very knowledgable and kind and a pleasure to deal with.. So hopefully we will have nicer neighbours and a clean BBQ next time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baywatch is an amazing and spacious house with spectacular views. Comfy beds and lovely furnishings. The best part is that it is close to all attractions. Kids didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will be a holiday for us to remember! The accommodation and location was superb. The views from the balcony can only be described as awesome. The house its self is very spacious and included everything we required during our stay.
