New South Wales > Port Stephens > Nelson Bay


3-bedroom pet friendly holiday accommodation in Nelson Bay NSW. Air conditioning will keep you cool while your dog will enjoy the fully fenced yard. Why not enjoy a BBQ or a walk along the beach. This property can accommodate up to 5 people with 3 rooms and 3 beds at your disposal. Your pet is welcome inside this property! All this and more will make your holiday perfect and your pet will enjoy it too!

This where all your cares will melt away, as you settle into your groovy beach abode. This simple, but thoughtfully curated beach-side hideaway, nestles between Little Beach and Shoal Bay beach and is not more than 300 metres from either. Hang out in the hammock all day and enjoy some surfin’ safari cocktails in the leafy backyard that leads directly onto the footpath to beach. Rinse off under the outdoor shower when you’ve had enough of surf and sand and enjoy a family BBQ while you chill out for the evening.

The duplex sits on the ground floor and has been furnished with casual comfort and relaxation in mind. A well-stocked kitchen will delight you with its vintage treasures and has everything you need to cook up a feast. Enjoy your spoils in the eat-in kitchen area or head outside to the outdoor setting and take in the serenity. Two good-sized bedrooms, both with queens will accommodate your group and there is a day bed in the living area that can sleep an additional guest or child. A light-filled bathroom with walk-in shower and a laundry completes the picture.

Christine F, April 2024

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The accommodation was spotless, well appointed, and excellent for elderly dogs and their humans. A pleasant walk to the beach and equal distance to both Shoal Bay and Nelson Bay. Great communication and support if things go wrong. Highly recommended.

Maryanne M, March 2024

We had a lovely time. The place was comfortable and very welcoming and with many lovely touches to make the stay enjoyable, including leaving little treats and toys for the doggies to enjoy! Great location for walking around - out the back onto walking paths, and easy walk to some many places! Only downside was that the bedroom windows were overlooked by the units next door, & which let in light at night. Outdoor awnings or shades would make this 5 ✬! We would book again.

Jo F, January 2024

Walking distance to 3 beaches, had everything you needed for a comfortable stay.

Nicholas P, March 2023

Will definitely book again.
