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 always love to see a pic on your profile and also like you to share a little about yourselves.
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.
Rosalie and Carl were very helpful and friendly hosts. The location was perfect and the accommodation was excellent. I would definitely stay here again if I were to return to Port Macquarie.
Carl and Rosalie met me at the door and welcomed me. The room was much smaller than I imagined with a toilet but no shower.
A lovely breakfast of fruit and homemade bread was provided.
Rosalie and Carl are terrific hosts. They were warm and inviting, and truly unique individuals who care about all the little touches to make your stay a special one. The Hideway is a cosy and makes use of the space well. Breakfast was delicious and mirrored the beauty of their home. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Rosalie and Carl are fantastic hosts. I felt very welcome in their home and the Hideaway Nest was beautifully decorated, with everything you need for a comfortable night's stay. The breakfast is surely unrivaled. Two thumbs up! Thanks R&C.
Rosalie and Carl were fantastic! I felt very welcome in their home and the Hideaway Nest was very comfortable and cozy. I slept very well and breakfast was amazing! As well, Rosalie and Carl had some great tips for places to visit around Port Macquarie and the road to Byron.
I would highly recommend staying here.
Rosalie and Carl were kind and generous hosts. The space was practical, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.
I only stayed in Port for the night. Rosalie and her husband made me feel very welcome as soon as I stepped into their lovely house.
I stayed in the little room down the back. It's small - enough room for a solo traveler. This room is immaculately furnished and decorated. Rosalie has a special talent for interior design and decoration. If you apprecuate beatuful things, the room is worth a visit - even if you are not staying at the Nest! - its gorgeous

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”.
