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 many international tourists doing a road trip up or down the east coast and nearly all say that they should have had 2 nights as the driving is much longer and more tiring than they thought!....not to mention how fantastic Port is!!
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 .
You park right outside your room in a spacious parking area.
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.

Breakfast........We will supply you with some juice, fruit and bread for toasting with butter and spreads and a variety of teas and plunger coffee. This will be a great starter for your first morning!

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 6 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 (URL HIDDEN) 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!!

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 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!
