Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and cozy! We are so grateful that we had booked this very cozy and beautiful apartment for our family visiting Port Stephens, it's very clean and tidy, simple but cozy, it's located in a quiet area but can still smell and hear the wave.Even though the wet weather for the majority of the time we were staying, but we enjoyed the trip so much. There is no reception and internet in the house, it as so hard to go without wifi and mobile, but this actually giving our family a good time cell phone free enjoying each others company. Michelle and Shane are very nice and helpful. we will come back again, we love the house and we love Port Stephens so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic location, beautifully furniished We had a fantastic weekend away at this beautiful holiday house. We found the house to be spotlessly clean and in a great location with both an easy walk to the beach and local shops. Our family had plenty of room, the beds were super comfortable and we enjoyed drinks and seafood on the deck on Saturday afternoon. I would recommend this holiday house as an easy drive from Sydney. Thanks again - we will be back!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great long weekender. Lovely property. Very clean, well maintained and in a great location. Fingle Bay is the perfect place to explore Port Stephens, the local beach is arguably the best spot in the area for little kids to swim in. We took our 16 month old and he had a blast. Our only gripe would be the double bed mattress needs to be replaced - saggy springs meant an uncomfortable night sleep. Apart from that a very relaxing time. Would recommend this apartment.
