About This Listing
Port Macquarie is a magical place and The Hideaway NEST is only a couple of minutes from the heart of town, pristine white sandy beaches and endless beautiful beachside walks. Many trendy cafe's and restaurants close by to tantalise your taste buds.
The Hideaway NEST is perfect for travellers travelling alone. A room just for one. A little safe hideaway, a private place to relax in and a place that won't break the budget. Please note that it is a small room, but beautifully equipped with everything you will need for a truly cosy nights sleep.
Guests sleep on a new, comfortable single mattress made with quality ironed linen. Guests would also share a bathroom in the main house even though they have their own toilet in the Hideaway NEST.
Guests staying in the Hideaway NEST are welcome to enjoy the Alfresco Dining area in the garden and may use the main house by arrangement. This would depend on the occupancy of the our main B&B guest room called The NEST.
There are lots of things to see and do in Port Macquarie and we will do our best to share those things with you.
Spend a day on the 'Port Venture' doing a popular River Cruise and dolphin watch.
Port Venture offers Port Macquarie Cruises for Dolphin Watching, Lunch Cruises, Sunset Cruises, Eco History cruises and can cater for private functions or day tours.
The Whale watching is always filled with joy and delight and the Jet Boat is an experience you will never forget. During the warmer months of the year we also have camel rides on Lighthouse Beach, always great fun for all ages.
Something that we find truly special, is a drive to Comboyne in the Hinterland. A quaint little village in the mountains filled with bush walks and waterfalls to enjoy.
The Hideaway NEST has its own entrance, so guests can come and go as they please. They can enter the property down a path beside the main house, or enter through the house, whichever makes them the most comfortable.
Interaction with Guests
We are more than happy to provide you with travel pointers for the area if required. Our home is a quiet home and you are most welcome to come and go as you please, with as little or as much involvement with us as you need. We are available if required, and if not, you will thoroughly enjoy your own space in The Hideaway NEST
We love our friendly neighbourhood. We watch out for each other and also respect each other's privacy.
It is only a 15 minute walk to the CBD. Our impressive library is on the corner of our street and is only a short stroll. It's a 15 minute walk to our beautiful beaches and beach walks and a 1-2 minute walk to a bus route. We live in a very convenient location.
If you would enjoy cycling to town or to the beaches you are most welcome to use our bike. (Please give us prior notice if you intend using the bike.) Of course you would be responsible and the Hideaway NEST would not assume any responsibility for any accident, loss or theft whilst in your care.
Just let us know your flight details and we will be more than happy to be at the Port Macquarie airport to pick you up, regardless of the arrival time.
Other Things to Note
Believe it or not, The Hideaway NEST started its life as a laundry, playing a very important part of the day to day life of many families.
Just a few years ago it was subjected to a dramatic transformation which changed its personality and it became a craft / sewing room. Then more recently had yet another upgrade evolving into a B&B — just for one.
With a lovely outlook into the garden this quaint little room, has got everything you need for a sleepover on a budget. A great new, very comfy bed, your own toilet and hand basin and all the comforts of home set amongst the rustic charm and clear evidence of The Hideaway NEST's former life.
We would just love you to appreciate and respect our space as much as we do. We are non-smokers, so we would value the choice not to smoke on our property. Thank you.
Sorry the Hideaway NEST is not suitable for pets.
My experience with Rosalie & Carl at The Hideaway Nest has been everything I could need in a time when I need somewhere comfortable to stay.
The Breakfast is to die for.
The design of the whole home is beautiful.
I would recommend The Hideaway Nest to any of my friends.
It was my first airbnb experience and it was wonderful - Rosalie and Kurt made me feel very welcome and safe. I loved the cute little room - especially all the little details like my name on the door and the candle! I also loved the fact that it had garden access and I could easily imagine myself staying longer - especially that it really felt like staying with family and there are some amazing beaches around! And the breakfast - out of this world! Beautiful & delicious!
Rosalie and Carl were lovely and i felt very looked after, i had everything i needed. Port Macquarie is a beautiful place to stay.
Rosalie could not have done more to make me feel welcome. She has clearly embraced the airbnb philosophy and goes out of her way to make your stay as comfortable and easy.
The Hideaway Nest is perfect accommodation for one for a few nights. Its an ingenious use of space, which is cosy but works well.
There is a lovely outlook onto the garden from the room.
It's very nice place to stay in, room for 1 is small just to fit one person but very warm and cozy and convenience.
host is very nice and friendly, we have nice conversation over breakfast.
Would love to come back again
What a great nest! Lovely hosts who genuinely care. Thanks for a great first experience and I hope to be back. Made it safely to Sydney too thanks!
The hosts were very lovely and welcoming into their gorgeous! Even though I was there for a very short time, I would definitely stay again as it was a very lovely experience.

About the Host, Rosalie
We live in a beautiful part of the world and would love to share it with others. If you are tempted to think that one night is enough — it's not! You can never get enough of Port Macquarie, so try and stay at least two or three nights. You'll love it!
My husband Carl and I are both creative people and appreciate anything that is done well. Presentation, style and flair is important to us. Carl is a designer, amongst many other creative gifts and I wear several hats which incorporate event co-ordination and interior design.
Family are very precious to us and moments spent with them are priceless investments. Delectable foods and gourmet cooking is a passion for both of us. And a husband who is a muso, means music is a special part of our lives — "Music is what feelings sound like."
We love taking the time in the busyness of life to value the things that we believe to be important and precious. Life is a journey not a destination and we like to make a difference to those we encounter. It is very important for both of us to know: Who we are, where we came from and where we are going.
We love people and travel and feel honoured that AirBNB has awarded The NEST with the status of “SUPERHOST”.
This activity is really worth seeing. You will be able to get up close and personal with our furry friends the koalas. And the historic Roto house is right next door and it is also fascinating.
This is our very favourite restaurant in Port Macquarie. The food is awesome, the service is great and you will definitely need to book. Indulge yourselves — you won't be disappointed.
We love it because the food is great and the position is equally special
Port Central is the nearest shopping centre to The NEST and you should be able to find everything you need in this centre or in the main street, which is Horton Street.
This is a great restaurant and very convenient to The NEST
Great place to go for coffee and light lunches. Yummy food and reasonably priced too. And just a short stroll to the very popular foreshore.
The waterways in Port are simply beautiful and it would be well worth a trip on Port Venture 11. You'll be bound to see dolphins and depending on the time of the year, you may also get to see whales.
Enjoy all the water activities. A fun Jet-boat ride in the river or even out to sea, maybe see the whales or just on a thrill-seekers ride. Always fun on a Jet ski too if you prefer to be in control.
If you want to sit in a rainforest and enjoy some great food and unique atmosphere, then this is the place to go. Breakfast or lunch only.
