  • Enjoyed a short stay at Nelson Bay! The apartment was clean and lovely, really felt like a home away from home. It is in a central location. Had a great wake up to a flock of beautiful rainbow lorikeets. Shirlie Ann was a lovely host very attentive and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

    Alexandra2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful host, very accommodating. Great location, very central.

    Daniel2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Shirlie Ann was a great host. Very responsive! The apartment was very clean and set out perfectly for us and our young daughter! Great location, easy walk to town and handy to be next to Woolworths. Would stay here again!

    Elise2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • When we first walked into Shirlie-Ann's apartment we were blown away. The view in combination with the well furnished and spacious living areas were beyond our expectations. All the things you could ever need were provided e.g. condiments, toiletries, linen etc. The location was perfect - close to the beach, shops, transport and restaurants. We spent every night of stay on the balcony which combined a great view with a gorgeous sea breeze. Shirlie-Ann herself was beyond accommodating and surprised my girlfriend and I with a few little gifts that made our stay all the more special. She had great communication skills and we would definitely stay in her place again.

    David2017-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Shirlie-Ann was a lovely host and very flexible about arrival time which made life easy for us. The flat is very spacious, clean and well equipped - everything you could need for a short stay (or even longer) by the beach. You should know it is in the commercial district of Nelson, so surrounded by shops and offices, rather than down by the waterfront. Also, they are building a new Woolworths right next door and work starts early. It's okay if you want to be out all day but don't expect a lie-in - should be finished shortly. Lack of wifi is a bit of an issue for us travellers, but should not worry you if you've got local data phone.

    Rupert2016-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Shirlie-Ann was super welcoming with excellent correspondence that made you feel welcome before you even arrived. We were welcomed into the apartment with a beautiful welcome hamper which we teamed up perfectly with a nice Sauvignon Blanc. It's exactly what you need after hours on the road. We just loved our stay and recommended it to our local friends to suggest it to others visiting the bay.

    Kate2015-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our trip to Nelson Bay was last minute idea.So we really appreciated Shirley-Ann's quick response when we looked for the accomodation.Her apartment is very well located,only a few minutes to restaurants,wharf and the beach.Woolworths store is next door which is a big advantage if you like to grab something to eat.The apartment is pretty spacious and you can find there everything you need and even more!Shirley-Ann was available over the phone and the communication was easy going.We had a good time! Highly recommended!

    Linda2016-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Shirlie-Ann seems to be a naturally generous, friendly and welcoming person. Without being intrusive she was helpful, easy to contact and responsive.

We do not have fancy furniture and carpets. We do not have freshly painted walls. We do not have a pool or spa We do not have air-conditioning We don’t have scenic waterfront views WHAT WE DO HAVE THOUGH is a fancy location, 400 metres from the beach, shops, restaurants and public transport.

    Apart from the breathtaking beaches, the cafes, restaurants and shops here are 4 of the many great things to do all within 15 minutes; 1 . WRECK BEACH WALK - SHOAL BAY If you’re looking for a peaceful spot to soak up the serene marine splendour of Port Stephens, take this short walk to Wreck Beach - tucked away behind the houses at Shoal Bay and visible from the majestic lookout at Tomaree Head summit. From Verona Road, follow the track uphill and onto the fire trail which eventually takes you onto Wreck Beach walk. Walking through this lush coastal angophora forest leads onto a small cove, with beautiful sand and open views of the ocean, which is perfect for seasonal whale watching. You might even spot a bottlenose dolphin frolicking with their calf in summer. Enjoy a walk barefoot along the beach as the water laps at your feet. When you’re finished, settle down in a relaxing picnic spot and enjoy the solitude of one Port Stephens’ best kept secrets. If you feel like getting in the water then your best option is to drive five minutes over to Box Beach a better swimming spot with great facilities, toilets and a lifeguard service. 2. TOMAREE HEAD SUMMIT WALK - SHOAL BAY Take the invigorating short walk to the summit of Tomaree Head, 161 metres above the Port Stephens entrance. As you hike the track, you’ll enjoy unparalleled views of idyllic Port Stephens and its coastline. From the top, you can even see as far as Cabbage Tree and Boondelbah islands, these nature reserves are the world’s only nesting sites for the endangered Gould's petrel. When you reach the summit, enjoy panoramic views of Yacaaba Head, Cabbage Tree, Boondelbah and Broughton Islands from the north platform. From the south platform, views of Zenith, Wreck and Box Beaches, Fingal Island and Point Stephens Lighthouse will be sure to impress. Be sure to check out the historic World War II gun emplacements. Take your binoculars as you might be lucky to see some dolphins. There’s a picnic table at the lookout, so if you have time, take a picnic lunch or some morning tea to enjoy as you take in the view. On the way back down, don’t forget to try Fort Tomaree walk. 3. FORT TOMAREE WALK - SHOAL BAY This easy walk on a paved track around the lower slopes of Tomaree Head brings you face-to-face with local military heritage. World War II gun emplacements, built in 1941 to defend the east coast of Australia. Learn about Fort Tomaree from interpretive signs, or take a guided Discovery tour for even more detail. A further track takes you up elevated walkways on Tomaree Head Summit walk, which offers breathtaking lookout views over Port Stephens and nature reserves like Cabbage Tree Island. Humpbacks migrate past here in winter and spring, so you’ll want to bring your camera for whale watching. Finish your visit by relaxing on the lovely sands of beautiful Zenith Beach, near where the walk begins. Or make your way to the nearby picnic area; an idyllic spot to unwind underneath the shade of angophora trees. 4. WORLD WAR II GUN EMPLACEMENTS - SHOAL BAY If you are interested in Australian military history, make sure you take the short walk along Fort Tomaree walk to Tomaree Head. The headland, part of Fort Tomaree, played an important role in Australia’s east coast defence system during World War II. Fort Tomaree included search light stations, a radar tower, torpedo tubes and barracks, where around 500 army, navy and air force personnel served. Most of the Fort’s buildings and guns have been removed; however the historic gun emplacements remain, a visual reminder of Australia’s military history. It’s easy to see why this location was chosen the headland features panoramic views of Port Stephens and the coast. If you would like to find out more, check out the interpretive panels near the emplacements, or take a guided Discovery tour. On the way back to the car, take Tomaree Head Summit walk to the summit of Tomaree Head for a picturesque view of Port Stephens.

  • Christine was a great host! We weren't really sure what to expect when using Air BnB but having Christine as our host exceeded our expectations! Amazing home, right in the middle of everything in the Bay. Great views from the moment we arrived. And the hospitality was amazing! Couldn't thank Christine enough for organising dinners with other guests in the house. Would come again and recommend to friends. 10/10

  • We had a lovely stay at Christine's 5 minutes away from very beautiful and quiet beaches in Shoal Bay. The stay felt more like staying in a hotel because Christine provided small soaps and shampoos aswell as towels and also because Christine has got her own private unit in the house whereas several guests stayed in different rooms in the guest area. Therefore you get a lot of privacy as well as Christine does. The only things we didn't like that much is that there were no soap or towels provided in the bathroom to wash your hands and you weren't allowed to leave your own. Also it was a bit dusty under our bed. Still a very nice place to stay at!

    Sonja & Moritz2017-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Christine's place is very well located, close to Shoal Bay Beach, Mount Tomaree,  Fingal Bay and easy access by car to Nelson Bay. Christine was very kind to give us some tips on on restaurants to go! The room is specious, clean, bed is comfy, there's a fan in the room. Bathroom and toilet are shared with other guests. Great value for money. Thanks Christine for hosting us!

We were warmly welcomed and ended up having a BBQ with the host and other guests, it was the best get together we’ve had since arriving in Australia. I would 100% recommend staying here, we will again if we’re in the area. The house very close to many beaches and Nelson bay, it’s a beautiful area!

Our beautiful bay region is a delight to explore and as hosts we aim to provide an experience!

  • Marguerite is a very friendly host and the small basement studio faces on to a quiet suburban street. The bar fridge and microwave are handy for having a snack. There is no desk in the studio but there is table on the verandah outside. The spa pool is located at back of the house, looking on to the national park. It is adjacent to one of the owner's bedrooms - hence the restricted access hours. There is also a table and chairs there. The studio is very good value for money and is an excellent option for an individual or couple that wants a quiet base to explore an exceptionally beautiful part of Australia.

  • Marguerite provided a very clean and comfortable stay – the room was great for a weekend getaway. It was great being in walking distance of the main street of Shoal Bay and Tomaree Mountain. Marguerite was also really helpful in providing suggestions for restaurants to visit – handy local knowledge.

  • This is such an amazing Airbnb! Marguerite is such a lovely person. Her studio is amazing; very clean and private. The place is very easy to get to. My partner and I loved using the hot tub and listening to the kookaburras. It was so relaxing. We also loved watching a movie in bed and enjoying a nice cup of tea. I got an amazing nights sleep there as the bed was so comfortable. It was so great to have stayed there, would recommend it to everyone! We will be back for sure!

    Serena2017-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had mixed feelings about our stay. On one hand we felt that the term "elegance" that was used in the title did not refer to the house. The house itself was fine, an older house halfway through a full renovation. It was a bit battered in places but otherwise served its purpose. The yard was a great size for our kids and our dog and the house easily accommodated the 6 of us. The location is a bit to far from the bay/main strip to walk with kids (maybe about a 20 min walk for adults) but the road access is direct.

The apartment was a block away from the beach and close to everything in shoal bay! Ideal for small families as the kitchen is very well equipped!

  • Very clean, has everything you need, and is the perfect size for a group of friends or small family. Lorena was very easy to get in touch with as well. No AC but the fans made it very comfortable. The location is perfect if you have a car, but if you don't the public transportation is very doable as long as you plan it out a bit in advance (taxi service is iffy).

Great accommodation and quieter than we thought it might have been as it's very close to everything - a top seafood cafe just a minute away , a good range of quality shops [not the normal shopping center type] and Nelson Bay - just beautiful! the accommodation was tops even with the ensuite being initially hard to spot.

    Welcome to Sono's beach shack. Set against the tranquil Tomaree national park, you can enjoy nature either from within the house or step 5m outside and find yourself in national park. A short 300m walk along a sand track will find you at the local's secret spot - Wreck Beach. One of the best way's to escape the tourist crowds of Shoal Bay and Fingal Bay during summer.

Word of advice if parking in the driveway take note of where the birds are doing their business, I'd say park closer to the front door on an angle. Some things are learnt the hard way. :)
