Interaction with Guests
It is not my normal practice to meet with guests but I do assure them that if an urgent situation arises they can contact me and I will do what I can to help.
Our neighbourhood has nature walks, is close to the water, is 2 minutes drive from Salamander Bay Shopping Centre, is 5 minutes drive from Nelson Bay Township, the beach and Whale/Dolphin Watching, is 7 minutes drive from Nelson Bay Lighthouse and 10 minutes drive from the sand dunes of Stockton Beach which is a must for those into four wheel driving. Guests can also do scuba diving at Fly Point where we have one of the largest underwater sponge parks in the state of New South Wales.
Guests have access to local buses at the entrance to the resort. The same location is where they can catch a daily morning coach to Sydney. If guests arrive at Sydney International Airport there is a coach departing from Central Station to the resort once a day in the afternoon. If guests arrive at Newcastle Airport there is a regular bus service departing from the airport and guests are able to be dropped off at the entrance to the resort. Contact me for any information on bus or coach services.
Oaks Pacific Blue Resort has a policy of no pets.
Smoking is only permitted on the balcony.
What a fantastic host Lindsay is.
The apartment exceeded our expectations.
We have stayed at this resort before but I must say Lindsays' place was way better.
He was very easy to approach with any questions we had.
We have been coming to the Bay for many years now and this stay was by far the most luxurious we have had.
WE will definitely be contacting Lindsay again the next time we are wanting to visit this lovely place.
Thank you Lindsay, catch you next time.
Marcus and Marianne.
Thanks Lindsay for another excellent stay. We've stayed here twice now in the last year and we've been equally impressed with your apartment both times. Clean, modern, decorated to a high standard and perfectly equipped for our stay. We needed some more soaps etc. and Lindsay came around to the apartment very quickly to drop them off. Loved also the pool! Thanks again Lindsay, hope to come back again sometime in the near future.
My husband and I stayed in Lindsay's apartment for 5 nights. It was amazing. Spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed.
We hired a car so were able to explore all around Port Stephens. Most attractions are within a 10-15 minute drive. There is a shopping centre and a few restaurants within walking distance (including a restaurant at the resort).
We spent many hours by the beautiful pool and were always able to find a comfortable lounger chair to sit on. I would imagine this could be tricky on weekends and holiday times when there are more people. The fact that the apartment is on the upper level meant it was quieter and had more privacy.
Lindsay was an excellent host. On one occasion we locked ourselves out of the apartment and he was there within minutes to let us back in. He responded quickly to all emails and messages during the booking process and in the lead up to our stay.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lindsay's apartment and can't wait to stay again.
Lindsay was wonderful. Quick to reply to any queries which we had. Regular emails leading up to our stay. The description was perfect. Absolutely stunning apartment. Could not fault anything. The area was pretty good. Lovely quiet area within walking distance to water and the shopping centre.
Came to Oaks Pacific in 2010 and stayed with the hotel with my husband and enjoyed the experience. Came again to Oaks Pacific this time with my husband and brother, sister in law and all the kids. I have to say as much as this resort is absolutely amazing and great for families, The apartment is flawless and absolutely amazing, we walked in and were speechless to how amazing the rooms are. Highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in visiting and I will definitely be back more than once :) maybe yearly :)
Lindsay's apartment was great, as good as it looks in the pictures. It's close to the pool and we appreciated the free wifi. Looking forward to staying again in future.
When I first saw the photos of Lindsay's apartment, I thought they were too good to be true - but as the other reviews on here show, they really aren't! The apartment is as impeccable in real life as it is in the photos. Clean, spacious, modern and tastefully decorated; I highly recommend Lindsay's apartment for anyone wanting to stay in the Salamander/Nelson's Bay area. With high-speed wifi, comfortable beds and parking directly outside (in my experience), I really cannot fault this apartment. Wonderful for 2 couples, but if you are a group of friends/family, don't be discouraged! As long as you are happy to share a bed (or play musical beds, as I did in a group of 3) you will be more than comfortable in this beautiful apartment.
Do you know what brings me the most pleasure being an airbnb host? It is the thought that our apartment provides each guest with a five star resort experience but without the expensive price tag attached to it. Each guest also has the opportunity to use an array of facilities located at Oaks Pacific Blue Resort as part of the deal. We are told regularly by those who work here that they consider our apartment to be the best in terms of interior design and furnishings. Don't take my word for it. Come. Stay. Find out for yourself!
