The Cottage

Sleeping up to 8 adults, there are two queen rooms, and one double room. The verandah bedroom is equipped with a bunk bed. All new beds, mattresses, quilts with covers and pillows. The lounge room is super comfy featuring a 3 seater lounge with chaise, a large plasma TV with CD/DVD player and spills out onto the sweeping verandas where there is a new Weber Q to enjoy an outdoor BBQ or an early morning coffee. There are two separate verandah table options.

The dining room features a large table seating eight. Great water views can be enjoyed while dining or lounging. The kitchen is impressive with setting for 12 and everything you will need to prepare your favourite meals. There are water glasses, wine glasses, beer glasses, mugs and jugs. Microwave, toaster, electric kettle, french press, and a Kenwood stick mixer. Quality knives, mixing bowls, measuring cups, and serving platters - all new. There is a 3 way bathroom with full bath and separate shower. A new toilet, basin, and taps just installed. Tea and coffee are supplied along with basic pantry items on a replace as you use basis.

At the waterside you will find a great picnic table and brazier for roasting marshmallows or even cooking on - so many options! Included in your stay is use of two new kayaks with life jackets and paddles. Also a private boat ramp for launching your own boat at high tide. A four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle is required because of the steep section of the lawn going down to the ramp.

For kids there are toys, games, and puzzles. There is a portable cot, highchair, and children's plates and cutlery. Even a little step under the basin!

North Arm Cove

North Arm Cove is the gem of Port Stephens and one of the most beautiful spots on the East Coast of Australia. There is so much to experience here.

The biggest disruptions in North Arm Cove are from the extraordinary encounters you'll have with its diverse wildlife. The birdlife is amazing. You'll see and hear Kookaburra's, King Parrots, Kingfishers, Rosella's, Lorikeet's, Sea Eagles, Osprey, Pelicans, Black Swans and more. Dolphins are regularly spotted feeding on schools of fish right out in front of the Cottage.

You're only minutes from the quaint village of Tea Gardens on the beautiful Myall River. Catch the ferry across to Nelson Bay, charter a fishing boat or just enjoy the local art. There are numerous restaurants serving superb seafood. Cross the Singing Bridge into Hawkes Nest, but don't drive too fast as you might spot a Koala in the reserve on your left. Head to Bennet's beach for a surf or run your four-wheel drive along the beach to Myall Lakes National Park. Hike up the Yaccaba Headland for panoramic views to Newcastle and beyond. You'll be able to spot dolphins and also whales in season from this location.

Drive north a few minutes from Hawkes Nest and you're in the National Park where you'll see Dingo's and can net prawns in the lakes.

Bring your fishing gear as the fishing options are endless. The Cove is great for Whiting, Bream and Blue Swimmer crabs. Just around the corner near Middle Island you'll encounter Jewfish. Longtail Tuna cruise through the bay in season as do countless other species. Head outside for great Snapper and Flathead fishing, troll the islands for Kingfish, Tailor and Bonito. The waters off Port Stephens offer some of the best big game fishing in Australia.

In less than an hour you'll be in the middle of the Hunter Valley enjoying the extraordinary array of wineries, gardens, entertainment, and dining opportunities. Forty five minutes has you into Newcastle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved everything Rented this beautiful cottage for my fiance's birthday weekend with family. Although it rained all weekend there was plenty of things to do. BBQ and boardgames. Thank you Cottage on NAC for an unforgettable weekend away. We will definitely recommend this place to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way What can I say? we were blown away by how fantastic our stay at the cottage was. Perfectly cosy but spacious and well appointed. The views were unreal and we loved watching the sunset from the dining room each night. Also loved spending time down by the water at the picnic table and making use of the brazier. There was even firewood there for us! The house itself had everything we could have possibly needed including pretty interiors and comfy lounges to relax on. Everything was spotlessly clean and neat - we felt completely at home at the cottage and genuinely didn't want to leave. It's the perfect place for a relaxing getaway with friends and we will definitely be back as soon as we can. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay! Couldn't recommend enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage in an excellent location Stayed for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great place to relax and unwind. Cottage was very well equipped and included the use of two kayaks. What better way to spend an evening than with a glass of wine at the waterfront only to retreat to the balcony for an evening bbq

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We just keep coming back! We've been here 3 times and will be going again this year. The location is great - overlooking water from the balcony with heaps of space for the kids to play on the lawn, completely peaceful. Shops and an absolutely brilliant beach for the kids 15 minutes drive away. The house itself is super quiet and comfortable - you basically arrive and just chill straight away with minimal settling. Its well appointed and thoughtfully decked out and fully functional for a really easy self-catering stay. They even have kayaks, BBQ, puzzles and games and have everything you need for little kids. We just LOVE it there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent and cosy Place was nice enough. The tide was very low and the shore was very muddy so we didn't get a chance to go out on the water or go for a walk. The property had no fencing between the neighbours on either side and their houses are located closer to the water, which meant they could see right into our place and visa versa. Lack of privacy for me was a bit of a bother. Also the bathroom really needs a face lift. The furnishings in the living and dining room were beautiful and very comfortable. The outdoor area was a lovely place to relax at the end of the day to watch the sunset.
