The room in Melena's house is fantastic for a couple and it even comes with its own bathroom. Melena was a very warm and welcoming host and had lots of suggestions of what to do and great places to eat in the area. We loved chatting to her! Her house is located conveniently close to the center (the marina and lots of restaurants are all a short walk away). Breakfast was also included. We loved our stay and would recommend the place to anyone visiting Port Stephens!

Good location close to centre of Nelson Bay. The room was spacious and comfortable, bathroom just for our use was clean and had everything. Secure undercover parking for the car. Melena provided a good light breakfast. She had plenty of excellent suggestions for eating out, and for sightseeing. A very pleasant and relaxing place to stay.

Melena is a great host. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Her place is in a great location, very close to the business center and the marina. We had a private space with a private bathroom. Plus, she provided a nice continental breakfast. Highly recommend.

I live in a fantastic place- very close to the beach. I am a teacher and really enjoy travelling during the school holidays. Looking forward to hosting people in my home. Three things I love about Port Stephens are the beaches, the relaxed lifestyle and the great walks.

I really enjoy being an AIRBNB host and meeting different people. I am hoping to also meet other AIRBNB hosts around the world in my travels.
