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, 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.
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.
This was our first AirBnB experience and it was great. The accommodation was exactly as promised, Christine was very friendly and helpful. The set up was great, private but when we needed something, plastic bags for wet clothes :-( , it was easy to find someone. It was a bit out of Port, so a drive for restaurants, but the upside was that it was very quiet. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.
Ich habe mich bei den Beiden ab der ersten Minute wohlgefühlt, alles war sehr!!! sauber und ansprechend dekoriert. Chris und Kym sind zwei sehr nette Leute, ich war im Paradies. Wir hatten gute Gespräche und ein nettes Abendessen.
I felt at home after the first minute, the whole flat (it is nearly one) was very!!! clean and nice decorated. Chris and Kym are very nice people, I was in paradise. We had a nice dinner and good discussions.
All my friends were in awe when I showed them photos of my stay in Port Macquarie. After I told them about the hopitality of the hosts, they were really tempted to come and stay. When you are traveling in a foreign country, you really appreciate a cozy place to rest your dreary travelers' feet. I am confident all my friends will love this home away from home ad much as I did.
This is very amazing experience. Chris and Kym were our airbnb guests last autumn in Beijing. Staying with them really felt like catching up with old friends. Their house is beautiful! The view is breath taking. And our room is very spacious, clean and artistic. A short walking distance to the beach. A short drive to the supermarket. We enjoyed cooking and appreciating the view while having dinner. Chris and Kym were very helpful and friendly. They helped structure our trip: where to go/what to see. Port Macquarie exceeded our expectation. We enjoyed it way more than we did Byron Bay. If we ever return, we will stay with Chris and Kym for a week. There are still so much more we want to do.
WOW! Christine and Kym certainly have embraced the true spirit of AirBnB with their stunning slice of paradise. A clean and tidy space with the homely touches that make you feel incredibly welcome. The views from your own little outside space are quite the delight to wake up to and Chris and Kym are the kindest couple, thank you kindly for inviting me to dinner in your wonderful home :-)
As soon after we arrived, we felt at home! The pictures on airbnb doesn't even do good to reality! it's a wonderful place and the owners are very friendly. They left us some treats like fruit and some candy's. Next time we will book for more nights, because this is a wonderful spot as well. close to the lighthouse, with beautiful views and a very beautiful beach! The decoration of the room is great, everything you would need is in the room. even a nice breakfast for the next morning. We will be back!!!!!
It was an absolute privilege to stay at lighthouse beach with Christine and Kymm. They were fantastic hosts and really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation and location were both fantastic. A great experience!! X
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!
