Secluded 4-bedroom mansion with heavenly views. No schoolies, no bucks parties.


'Hollywood' is an exotic mansion on the hillside overlooking Port Stephens bay and the Pacific Ocean. As you can see from the photos, the view is quite simply SENSATIONAL! From almost every public room, you'll be gazing towards the twin volcanic peaks of Port Stephens heads and out across the sparkling Pacific Ocean to the islands beyond. The view is so breathtaking and so spectacular; you'll think you're in Rio or Hawaii.

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."'

'Hollywood' 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!!! House now has reverse-cycle air conditioning in all upstairs bedrooms for your added comfort and enjoyment.

This magnificent 4-bedroom house (sleeps 11 people - maximum of 9 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 plus another kitchenette on the ground floor, formal dining room, and enormous lounge room - all facing North for maximum sunshine (winter warmth and summer cooling orientation). There's also three brand new bathrooms, a home-theatre room, and four big bedrooms - consisting of 3 queen beds plus 2 sets of bunk beds plus an extra daybed (so, 5 single beds) - house sleeps, for example, 7 adults and 4 children. The master bedroom boasting a lavish en suite with spa bath.

Note: you are NOT renting individual rooms, YOU ARE RENTING THE ENTIRE 2-STOREY HOUSE. It 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.

'Hollywood' IS AN EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAY DESTINATION - IT IS NOT A PARTY-HOUSE FOR TEENAGERS OR 20-SOMETHINGS. NO ROWDY PARTIES ARE ALLOWED! Weddings, BBQ parties, bucks parties, hens nights, corporate functions, schoolies and pets are NOT permitted under any circumstances.

A valid credit card number (or in some cases, an $800 bond) must be supplied prior to check-in as a security measure. Bookings can be made by EFT over the internet, bank deposit or cheque.

Although each bed has a decorative doona and matching pillows; linen (sheets and pillow slips) and towels are NOT provided. You can either bring your own or rent them locally for a fair price (as can baby requirements such as cots and highchairs) - details upon request.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful place to stay! We were looking for somewhere to stay that would accommodate all our family, eight adults and three children, and that would give us a sense of being somewhere special - even just for a few days. Heaven's Gate was the most wonderful choice. When we walked in the view took our breath away. It is absolutely stunning. The house is also something special. We opened up the doors on the deck straight away, poured some cool drinks and soaked up the view! The layout of the house ensured that everyone had their own space and yet we could all be together for meals and either enjoy the view, watch the large screen tv while the winter olympics were on or lounge around while reading a book. Just fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of room for our adult family of 7. As all bedrooms had private balconies and views there was no fighting over the best, although my husband and I 'pulled rank' for the one upstairs so that we were on the living room level. We woke up each morning feeling like we were in a tree house. The house is lovely - has a well equiped kitchen and BBQ and, as others have mentioned, great views (the neigbours are also friendly). I would like to know "where did you get that great front door"?!! Thanks for accepting our booking we had a wonderful 4 nights stay and rarely left the house. It was a great place to relax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My extended family and I had the nicest time away at Heavens Gate. This property truly blows you away. I highly recommend it to any person wishing to have a relaxing holiday. We all feel rejuvinated by the time we spent there. The main deck is incredible, you have the most amazing view and you are right in the middle of the bush. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens were stunning. Thanks so much for letting us stay, it was a great experience. Bec Cammell + Family
