About Michelle and Andrew Woodhouse
We love to travel and explore all parts of Australia and the world and we are so lucky to live in the water paradise of Port Stephens. Travelling with our family means ensuring our dog can join us as well and ensuring that our guests (including our 4-legged ones!) have the best time in our beautiful area, is our number one joy.
Michelle and Andrew Woodhouse purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Michelle and Andrew Woodhouse chose Shoal Bay
Shearwater Cottages is very special to us as our desire is that all members of the family have a great time and that guests can feel happy knowing that their 4-legged loved ones are safe and secure. Our cottages ensure that it is a 'home away from home' and dogs are welcome inside. All linen is provided as well as a breakfast selection to start your stay.

Enjoy the many beaches and waterways; swim, sunbake or read a book in the sun; take a dolphin or whale cruise; wander along the many walking trails; relax in quiet corners; enjoy the coffee shops, restaurants and speciality shops and simply relax and enjoy!

Weekend in shoal bay with family and dog
It was a perfect property for our needs.
Went for the long weekend with my parents and the dog.
Short walk to dog friendly beach and cafe.
Quiet cottage - easy for pet.
Really thoughtful of the owners to leave breakfast and snacks for the dog!
Highly recommend the place... will be back :)
Ideal place for a weekend break
Well equipped, comfortable two bed property with everything needed for a relaxing break. Nice area outside for dogs. Spotlessly clean and in a quiet area.

Hi Julie, Craig, Jessica and Luke,
Thank you for your kind words and it was lovely to have you staying again (and also Luci and Daisy - so great to meet the new family member!). Looking forward to you staying again one day,
Michelle and Andrew
Fantastic weekend away
Cottage was impeccably clean and had everything we could have needed. So nice to find pet friendly accommodation which is so set up and welcoming to both humans and dogs!
Perfect for dogs and their humans!
We all loved our stay! Lots of nice dog friendly touches along with a kitchen stocked with the basics for us humans (including a coffee machine!!) which made it super easy slot in to a simple, relaxed stay. A great location and the area has so many dog beaches and dog friendly cafes. Perfect!
Excellent accommodation highly recommend
From the onset Michelle and Andrew made our family feel so welcome. The accommodation is clean and comes with everything and more to make your stay an enjoyable and comfortable one. We have been travelling for years with our kids and I have to say this is the best place we have stayed. The sliding doors along the wall make It perfect to open up and let the cool breeze through. We didn’t stay with our dog but perfect for those with pets. I have nothing negative to say our stay was perfect. Only 5 min drive to marina and close to all beaches. Thanks again for our stay.
