Guaranteed relaxation, so close to coastal walks & beaches and a short drive to the CBD.
Welcome to our little bit of paradise in a most beautiful part of the coast! Port Macquarie is a great destination in itself, but a PERFECT half-way stop between Sydney and Byron Bay/ Brisbane. To appreciate the beauty of Port Macquarie we suggest you have at least 2 nights so that you have a full day to explore the numerous sights.
We have a large, modern and artistically decorated house with a completely private, large( over 40 sqm)self-contained space on the lower level to offer. It would be perfect for a couple, but great for 3 or 4 .
We can cater for 4 people comfortably. It is open plan with a comfy queen bed and 1 new single bed, and then another single bed in a spacious but smaller room off the main room divided by a curtain.
You have your own private ensuite and secure private entrance.
For 2 or more night bookings, you will be welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine/ beers too!
There is a kitchen nook, with a dining setting and you can even see the lighthouse while having a snack! The kitchen area has been newly and thoughtfully equipped so that you can prepare simple meals with a bar fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. We also have a portable induction cooktop and frypan/ saucepan for simple cooking.
Although we do not supply a full breakfast we will give you some juice, fruit and bread for toasting with butter and spreads and a variety of teas and plunger coffee.
Linen and towels are provided. There is a heater and an electric blanket for winter months, and a ceiling fan for summer.
Outside your room is a small area with plants, seats, and for convenience, you park right at the door.
The bathroom is modern, and equipped with a hair dryer and basic toiletries.
There is a sofa as well and a TV/DVD player. Our WIFI is FAST and reliable.
We have decorated the room in a fun, creative way with many artefacts from our varied travels and are sure you will be very comfortable.
Lighthouse Beach area offers great local cafes as well as a big supermarket within a 3-4 min drive. We are 2 minutes from the fantastic 10km coastal walk, which links the lighthouse with the town. You can drive to Lighthouse Beach in 2 mins or walk in 10mins through a lovely rainforest.
At our house we have an abundance of wildlife, with many birds and koalas that regularly visit our backyard. We even spot whales from our deck!
Just 5 km away is Port CBD, located at the mouth of the beautiful Hastings River, where you can find a huge amount of cafes, shops, a cinema and all other services that a large town offers.There is a bus service into town but we are happy to offer a pick up or drop off service at the airport or station for a small fee.
Port Macquarie is a fantastic destination, with many water sports, walks, wineries, great weekend markets, incredible beaches, whale watching tours, kayak tours, beach camel rides, Koala Hospital and Billabong animal zoo, beautiful drives and abundant tourist facilities....there is just so much to do!!
We are sure that you will enjoy our modern, comfortable little bit of paradise, surrounded by rainforest, in a secluded, unique part of Port Macquarie.
We will not have pets or smoking. Smoking can be outside where a seat is located. We would appreciate no excessive noise after 10 and no extra people may stay without notice.
From Jan 3 - 26, 2016 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Really nice place to stay - as other people have said - nice cozy bed. clean bathroom with lots of hot water. We watched whales migrating up past the lighthouse while we were having breakfast on the patio.
Port Macquarie is a beautiful place and well worth a visit.
Christine is a wonderful host and the house is beautiful. The house has everything we need (heater, toys for my kids to play, dvds to watch, etc). We totally enjoyed our stay. Pity that we were only there for one night.
Amazing place in a very great location with a fabulous view. Strongly recommended
The listing was very accurate. The little apartment was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Christine was very welcoming from the minute I made the reservation. She texted me the day before to find out our ETA and was very accommodating when we were several hours behind. I really wish we could have stayed longer to visit the area. It was absolutely beautiful, especially out by the lighthouse.
Really enjoyed our stay! Christine and Kym were extremely nice and welcoming.
The place is very clean, comfortable and has everything you need.
The kitchen had breakfast goodies, tea, coffee and we were welcomed with a nice bottle of wine.
Would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone.
About the Host, Christine
I am a newly retired teacher and so is my husband Kym. We have two wonderful children who live elsewhere in Australia. We live in the best part of Australia..we think..., the mid north coast of NSW, right near the beach....in fact just a few minutes walk away from 2 gorgeous beaches. We are adventurous and keen on keeping fit. We enjoy volunteering and spending time with family and friends. We love to travel, explore the world and other cultures. We enjoy great coffee, good food and wine. We also love reading, music, movies and the arts.
And of course we love meeting new people!
