Description

HIDDEN GETAWAY... A PIECE OF PARADISE JUST 2 HRS FROM SYDNEY

54 Cove is situated on over half an acre of waterfront land in the village of North Arm Cove on the untouched northern shore of Port Stephens. 54 Cove provides contemporary, fully equipped accommodation for up to 8 people.

54 Cove is the perfect retreat from a busy urban lifestyle. You will be amazed at the peace and quiet; the variety of bird and other wildlife on your doorstep. If you dream of relaxing on a private deck overlooking a pristine, untouched bay, watching the dolphins play and the wallabies hop by as the sun gives way to a million stars, then this is the place for you

If you feel like a bit of activity, 54 Cove is ideally situated for exploring from land or sea. There are 2 kayaks life jackets supplied to paddle on the water. Boat launching facilities are also available nearby. Alternatively, bring your mountain bike and explore the area from the land. North Arm Cove is perfect for cycling, and if you are feeling really energetic, you could also cycle to the nearby tennis court for a hit.

In less than perfect weather, cuddle up in front of the log fire with a nice glass of red, watch a DVD or play board games. After a glass or two of wine it may be time to challenge your companions to a game of pool or table tennis on the lower deck

Whether you are the active type, somebody who values complete relaxation, or somewhere in between, 54 Cove is the perfect weekend or holiday destination

LOCATION

The Cove is situated on the waterfront at North Arm Cove. North Arm Cove really is a hidden piece of paradise. It is a secluded and tranquil village on the northern shore of Port Stephens. It is hard to believe a place like this can exist so close to Sydney, but this area remains one of the few little known and minimally developed parts of NSW.

It is accessed via the M1/F3 freeway, 13km north of Karuah. It is around 2 hours drive from Sydney and 45 minutes from Newcastle. Despite its seclusion, the Cove is only a 5 minute drive, on a sealed road, from the Pacific Highway.

The nearest shop is at the famous Rock service station on the Pacific Highway, just 10 minutes drive from the house. This is a great place to stock up on essentials such as milk etc. For more extensive supplies, IGA at Karauh is 10 minutes away. In addition, Coles at Tea Gardens is 20km from the property.

North Arm Cove is one of the main gateways to the Myall Lakes National Park, a network of interconnected lakes and rivers that is one of the most popular boating destinations in the country. These lakes are superbly equipped for recreational boating and fishing.

NATURE

North Arm Cove is a top spot for nature lovers. It abounds with hundreds of different species of birds and is home to a large population of wallabies who hop through the village most evenings and often stop by to check out whats on the Barbie

Dolphins are constantly frolicking in the waters of Port Stephens, and can often be seen from the deck at the Cove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding position We were blessed with weather that complemented the outstanding position of the property. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and the fire. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a wind down - whether it be a couple, couples or a family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding position We were blessed with beautiful winter weather that complemented the outstanding location. We relaxed on the deck, enjoyed the fire and had an exquisite time. Would thoroughly recommend the house to anyone who would like to wind down - also suits families.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs cleaning and painting A wonder position but an old property which smells very mouldy. Needs tone cleaned thoroughly. Pantry items listed on website but there were none in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property manager was helpful and prompt to respond. My family and I enjoyed the stay very much, the area is very beautiful and relaxing. We especially enjoyed using the kayaks that were made available to us on the property. My kids enjoyed the fire place. We plan to come again sometime.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Worst Experience!! Definitely won't come back again!!my worst experience after renting many houses in Australia!! The owner doesn't know anything about hospitality and tourism industry and related behaviour!! During our stay, she put lots of stress on us by coming inside the property without any notice and nagging to everyone for a late checkout and started to count people loudly to check the guests number !! instead of talking to the right person or just charge more via Stayz policies. I won't leave this matter here,I want Stayz be more responsible for the level of owner hospitality knowledge to prevent this
