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.

Lindsay provided very clear and easy instructions with prompt communication. The place was immaculate and very comforting, would definitely recommend!
Booking Lindsay's Airbnb was a hassle-free experience. Lindsay was responsive and informative leading to an excellent 3-night stay at the Pacific Blue Resort.
This is a fantastic apartment in a beautiful, well-kept resort. Very useful cooking and laundry facilities, comfortable, spacious and luxurious living spaces with stylish furnishings, all complimented by a wonderful resort view over palm trees, walkways and the fun sparkly blue swimming pool.
Really exceeded expectations (photos are but a hint). Enjoyed a full hot buffet breakfast at the Splash Restaurant for $19pp, shopped locally at the shopping centre up the road for a casual dinner in, and dined in one of the many cafes and restaurants in surrounding suburbs.
Loved every moment at Lindsay's apartment and absolutely recommend it for a high-value/affordable beachside resort getaway. Salamander Bay, Nelson Bay, Anna Bay, Port Stephens etc. is a really special location worth exploring.
Thank you Lindsay for your gracious hosting in this wonderful space. Hope to be back when more days worth of 27+ degree sunshine and happiness by the pool and outdoor heated spa is in season :)
This was mine and my boyfriends first visit to Port Stephens, and we spent the weekend at this apartment for my birthday. Very comfortable, clean and all information provided was clear before arrival. Public transport easy to get around on, and bus stop sits right opposite the resort.
Lindsay's directions and instructions on how things worked was helpful and comprehensive. This apartment is so luxurious, we felt spoiled just walking through the front door. A real home from home, we settled in and relaxed instantly, we would have been happy to spend all of our time there but did venture to the nearby shops and beaches. It's well positioned for popular tourist spots, shops, cafes and restaurants. Would love to have spent more time there so may have to return for a longer stay in the future. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home for a wonderful relaxing holiday, you don't have to travel far for supplies and then just close the door on the outside world and enjoy the comfort and luxury of this apartment.
You wont find better value for money than this apartment. We had a fantastic two days here relaxing in the resort.
The apartment was very clean and had great facilities including a hot tub and steam room. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Very good communication with Lindsay, highly recommend this host and apartment.
Because we love the Port Stephens area, we spent two nights at this wonderful apartment in Salamander Bay. Our only regret is that we stayed there in the wrong season. The apartment is beautifully decorated, making it feel like a 5 star hotel. The apartment has everything in it that you could possibly need during a stay.
But the best part of the experience is the 500 meter pool that surrounds a large part of the resort. It results in a unique location and it significantly boosted the pleasure of our stay. Although the pool is not heated and thus cannot be used comfortably in winter, the spas on the pool's edge are heated, so that swimming is possible, even in winter.
Lindsay was very helpful and the information he sent us before our trip was all we needed to find our way around.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking visiting Port Stephens.
The apartment is just wonderful. It is super clean,too. It has got everything in it. The resort itself seems to be well looked-after. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.Thank you,Lindsay! We have enjoyed our stay.
About the Host, Lindsay
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!
