Known as the protected side of North Arm Cove, not as exposed to the winds.

YES this is your backyard, you can just about cast a rod from the balcony. This holiday house sits closest to the waters edge giving you the best view. You will enjoy panoramic views from this waterfront holiday house that has its own sandy boat ramp, no rock ledges, suitable for smaller tinny boats only, larger boats launch at boat ramps and drive around to the property to use at your leisure without having to put it on and off a boat trailer, you need to check the tides as North Arm Cove is tidal.

Once just a boat shack, in the later years has been renovated and extended into a very comfortable holiday home. Three bedrooms can accommodate up to 6 guests, two bedrooms with queen beds and one with double bed.

The house has only one step at the front door and by using the same door to go to the waterfront makes it ideal for little ones, elderly or disabled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterfront Wonderland Throughly enjoyed 10 days at this delightful property with our kids over the christmas holiday. Caught Blue Swimmer Crabs and fish. Saw Dolphins several times. Took our kayak, tinny, knee board and tube. Enjoyed heading out and exploring Port Stephens by water. Need to feel confident with your boat it takes a little to navigate the driveway and boat ramp. Also quite tidal out the front and no moorings so good anchors are a necessity. Booties are also a must. House is super comfortable, neat and tidy. You are provided with everything you need. BBQ is great. Beds comfortable.Very quiet area about 15 mins to Coles and all other supplies at Tea Gardens. Stunning views, very relaxing. We would happily stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weekend We had perfect weather for our weekend away and we were able to make the most of it in this comfortable cottage right on the water. We brought our kayaks with us and enjoyed exploring on the water but just the view and the stillness would have been enough to help us rest and relax. There is plenty to explore around the area or just to stay put and unwind was equally inviting. We would be very happy to come back and do some more exploring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Location We were blessed with great weather and a great location. The house was clean and had all that we needed. The kids felt at home and loved the access to the water, catching crabs, fishing and simply being kids.
