Upper level apartment was clean, but lacked the modern fittings required for its 4 star rating. Stove was old electric with no thermostat settings, no rangehood to eliminate cooking smells, which required you to open windows or door. Bed was a little on the soft side as well, rotated it to get a better sleep. The location is quite good... More

The kitchen, laundry and bathroom were well equipped. Great pool for daily swims too.It was worth spending a little extra for such a relaxing holiday.... More

My partner and I stayed at Beaches from 10-13 February 2014 and loved it! I guess the time of year and time of the week meant that there were fewer and older guests and it would perhaps get noisy with loads of kids banging up and down the stairs between the units during school holidays, plus the pool seems full...

Kitchen fully equipped and internal laundry provided. Great for family with kids. Close to nelson bay shops and local beaches, can either walk to beach or drive. Reasonably priced. Beaches is...

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Nelson Bay and it was a mixed experience. The folks at the reception were friendly and responsive. The unit was spacious and well provisioned. However, there were a umber of dead cockroaches that we cam across in various parts of the unit. We informed the receptionist of the same, and she said... More

Dear Guest, Firstly I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The units get professionally sprayed twice a year for cockroaches. cockroaches are a part of life up here as we are built on sand. The little buggers also can fly in. I provide free of charge fly spray in all units, and by getting them sprayed we try our very... More

The place is modern, spacious and has air conditioning. Bathroom is huge, but with very slippery floor. Location is fine if you want to visit Little beach - 5 min walk, about 20 mins walk to CBD of Port Stephens. Pool is great for kids, but you will hardly move there if you are an adult. Unfortunately the disappointment is... More
