The Garden Studio @ Anna Bay

Review by Paul, February

‘We found the Studio to be a great place to stay whilst we explored Anna Bay and the surrounding areas. The bed was big and comfortable, the bathroom was a good size and with a decent powered shower and the kitchen area had everything we needed to make a quick breakfast in the morning before heading out. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again in the future :)’

Review by Tweesham in November 2019

‘A great apartment with an amazing view. Easily accommodated our group of 8. The location near the beach was very nice with a great view and the takeout places right under the appartment were conveniently located. The garage was spacious and very secure. The rooftop pool and terrace were a great spot to enjoy the trip and have loads of fun. The Kitchen was well equiped, the bathrooms were very nice and the amenities provided were very good and added to the experience. We would be happy to stay here again 😊’

‘Everyone had a fantastic time at The Nest 🙂 Massive thumbs up and so conveniently close to the beach and a couple of minutes drive away from local stores. Clean and a highly recommend space for families. 15 minute drive away from Oakvale Wildlife Park – great fun for young kids. Will definitely look to stay again here for our next trip in the area and recommend it to others!’

We had a wonderful stay as had booked it for a family get together my mother 80th birthday weekend. Waterfront location is unbeatable and really nice touch having access to the kayaks, and pool table etc which kept the kids well entertained

Solaris @ Fingal Bay

Review from Kathryn in October 2019

Our family, including two teenage sons, enjoyed our stay at Solaris. We had plenty of space and the furnishings were comfortable and modern. The view across Fingal Bay was beautiful. Being just above a coffee shop, convenience store and take-way plus a block back from the beach was superb. The wifi and centrally ducted air-con were appreciated.

The Loft @ Fingal Bay

Review by Sonja in October 2019

Wonderful location, very convenient! It was wonderful having our fur child stay with us too! There is so much to do in Fingal Bay and surrounding areas and The Loft is perfectly situated to be close to everything you need. Comfortable space with everything you need. We will be back soon!


The Beach House at Nelson Bay

Review by Denitza in October 2019

We loved that house, the quitness and the space around it. Comfortable beds and well equiped kitchen, nice cleane bathroom, big dinningtable…we really enjoyed our stay. Price came a bit high but it was schoolholidays.

Bamboo Bay @ Fingal Bay

Review by Kevin in October 2019

This property had everything we needed and more, believe it or not it was even more beautiful in person. So close to the beach (about a 5-10min walk) if you have stuff you want to bring to the beach and want to drive it legit takes 1minute to drive to the beach and there was tonnes of parking when we went. Check in and check out is super easy and the staff (especially Danielle) were friendly and helpful. I’d definitely reconsider coming to this property again, and if not this property than definitely one managed by the Holidays By The Bay team.

The Loft @ Fingal Bay

Review by Penelope in October 2019

‘A beautiful, beachy apartment with good living and dining spaces. Fabulous location – not busy or noisy but with very helpful a few shops and cafes right next door. 3 min walk to the beach and the sound of the waves from the balcony very enjoyable and appealing. Highly recommend!’
‘Thank you for offering your beautiful property, it was very helpful that it was pet friendly and we also appreciated the loan of the beach towels – thank you!’

Rumah Cuti-cuti

Review by Melissa in October 2019

Fantastic home! Lots of room. We had 3 adults and 5 children stay comfortably and there were so many different spaces for us to spread out all over the house. It would also be a great place to stay with friends, without children. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Rumah Cuti Cuti and will recommend it to family and friends.

The Beach House on Fitzroy

Review by Asela in September 2019

Nice two bed room house with 5 min walk to the beach. Port Stephens sand dune is very close by as well. There are good collection of restaurants and other shops around. Host is very flexible and understood our requirement well.

Vues on the Beach @ Salamander Bay

Review by Shane in September 2019

If you’re reading this then you are sworn to secrecy! This has to be one of the best kepy VRBO secrets of all time. A lovely property in a perfectly secluded spot , right on the water. Words are just words – like kids, until you”ve experienced it you won’t be able to imagine how lovely it really is..

Occy’s @ Fingal Bay
Review from Andrea on 20/08/18:
“Naomi is very friendly and thoughtful, and she took very good care of us during our stay. The place itself is very lovely, clean, comfortable and locate quite close to the beach. The kitchen is equipped with all the modern appliances and utilities we need to make a nice feast. There is an outdoor space great for entertaining while there is also an enclosed front porch for you to relax and enjoy the quiet neighbourhood. It really feels like a home away from home and we have a very great time staying at Naomi’s place! “

Review from Rachel on 20/08/18:
“We had a wonderful stay at Naomi’s apartment, we didn’t want to leave! Really liked the styling and decor and extra perks like an awesome HD TV with Google Chrome Cast and fast Internet. The apartment was very comfortable, with a powerful heater, warm blankets and plenty of cutlery and dishes. Naomi was very friendly, professional and flexible with our arrival and departure times, also giving us tips on the area. Thanks again Naomi, we will remember your place if we visit Nelson Bay again!”
