Great Family Holiday
We just spent 2 weeks at Sea Urchin in Corlette. A great family holiday house. We called it a beach shack. Not fancy to look which might deceive but really was perfect for us as we were looking for comfort and practicality.
You can pay and rent top dollar for shiny places then often find there is no care taken in them to make them feel like a home. Sea Urchin has a great warmth and feel, amazing open family space for living plus lots of homely things like DVDs, board games, books and a kitchen that makes it easy for a family to settle straight into. Things like olive oil, matches, salt/pepper, foil, cling wrap, bags, good kitchen equipment etc shows that someone has taken care with this house.
Sea breeze from the bay meant that the house cooled down quickly once we opened windows and it was a hot two weeks but we never felt the house lacked for air conditioning.
Perfect for us as a family of 2Adt and 2 kids and a dog. Already booked to go back again.
The quintessential beach shack
Sea Urchin is a beautiful quintessential beach shack. We were in Port Stephens for the National Flying 11 Sailing Championship and Sea Urchin was our base. It was fantastic, so relaxing! Very thoughtful owners had left plentiful supplies of all the basics such as washing detergent, salt, pepper, tea and coffee and much more. We felt so at home there, and our dog loved the back yard and the beautiful dog-friendly beach across the road! Thank you for making such a big week, so enjoyable!
Wonderful to hear! It has been a pleasure hosting you.
This is a nice and excellent house for family holidays! Quiet and easy to access anywhere in Port Stephens, kids love it a lot. Will comeback next year definitely!
BTW, Alloggio staff are friendly and helpful!!!
Thank you for the lovely review, our dedicated staff will be pleased to learn of your high praise. The property is lovely and in a great location. We hope to see you again in the near future.
We've stayed in Port Stephens a few times however this house was one of the best ones we've stayed in. The house was super clean and well presented, it's only a 2min walk to Bagnalls Beach and a 5min walk to a Thai Restaurant and a takeaway store that sells amazing food, further up the road there is a Shell Museum that you must visit. The house can get really cold a night however there is a fireplace.
The house is pretty much equipped with most things which was really handy. I would definitely book this house again!
Thank you for your great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sea Urchin. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
It you want to relax, come here!
This is the second time we have stayed at Sea Urchin and we will definitely be going again! As soon as we get through the front door we relax. Being opposite the dog beach, it is great we can have our dog there. It is her favourite place as we just pop across the road three or four times a day and let her off the lead. The house is cosy in the winter with its wood fire and sun-trap garden and cool in the summer (having been there in both seasons). The rooms are a good size and the decor is lovely but it's not overly smart so I find it very easy to put my feet up and relax. Corlette itself is sweet with a Thai restaurant you can walk to from the house. Also a fabulous beautician and a really good physio! Five minutes drive to Port Stephens and Salamander Bay. Last time we went we saw heaps of whales off the coast and a koala in the tree outside our front door!
Thank you for sharing your comments and for leaving such a positive review. We are so pleased you have such wonderful stays at Sea Urchin, it really is a fabulous house and area.
Myself, partner and Labrador had a great weekend at the property. Great location with plenty to do and the house had everything that we needed. Fully enclosed yard for the woof and a toasty warm fire place for the cold winter nights. We will be back!
Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review, we are glad that you all enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
