“Very clean and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

We stayed over Christmas originally booked for three nights but left one night early. The property (ground floor unit) was very clean and tidy and had everything you need to make it your home away from home. The staff were very helpful if we needed more sugar or washing up powder. The pool is great and very grateful that it was heated we unfortunately had bad weather but that didn't stop the kids swimming because the pool was so warm. The beds unfortunately were not very comfortable bit too hard and being on the ground floor unit you can hear the other holiday goers every move which was only a bother late at night or early morning. Overall a great place to stay in close proximity to Shoal Bay and Little Beach and a 2 minute drive from the Marina.

Stayed December 2013

Yes, our outdoor heated swimming pool is quite popular . The average temperature of 27/28 degrees certainly makes it great to use .... even in cold weather !

Thank you so much for your great review

Great stay at Marty's staff was very helpful and accomodating, apartment very clean and spacious, a lovely place to stay very close the the water and also away from busy Nelson Bay but still only a 3 minute drive, recommend the Tea Rooms at the Lighthouse for lunch, terrific views

We recently visited Marty's for the first time and we were very happy with the amenities, location and friendliness of the staff. The pool was a nice temperature even when the beach water was freezing (on a hot day too!).

Merry Christmas !
Thank you for your review ... and we are very happy that you found our heated pool enjoyable.
We must agree with your comments about Sandpipers Restaurant ... it is our favourite also !
(They have also opened a new restaurant on Little Beach .. Little Beach Boathouse ( amazing!). You must try next time you are visiting the area.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights and it was just amazing. Big apartment (even bigger than ours in Sydney!), tastefully furnished and well-designed. It was spotless and comfortable, a home away from home. Kind and smiling staff, we loved that place!

We had 3 nights at Marty's with our 3 little boys. The kids loved the pool which was heated to take the chill off. This was a big asset when the weather turned cool and rainy! The rooms were nicely furnished but also practical for families. Plenty of space in the rooms and we appreciated having the extra television in the main bedroom. The only drawback is that the apartments do not have water views however we would choose great accommodation over a great view. Finally, the close proximity and safe concrete paths to Little Beach and Shoal Bay beach were wonderful for our kids with their bikes and scooters. We would definitely stay at Marty's again.

We spent just one quick night here, arriving late and leaving early the next morning, but I could not fault this place at all. It was spotless, well sized, comfortable, well located and great value for money. We could not have asked for anything more.

Location! Location! Spectacular Location!Quietly nestled between two of Port Stephen’s most idyllic beaches but still close enough to the heart of all the Bay’s great restaurants and attractions, Marty’s is in the perfect location to do everything or....absolutely nothing at all!Totally refurbished inside and out in August 2012 - you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the style, elegance and quality - not to mention the affordability!So when you arrive, leave the car (and your stress) in the car park - you won’t be needing them - and take a two minute walk west to stunning Little Beach. Soft white sand, perfect swimming for the kids, boat ramp and one of the best scuba diving spots on the east coast.A tad breezy today? No problem. Simply walk two minutes east and find a protected spot on the uncrowded Shoal Bay Beach - postcard perfect!Take a big deep breath in.... now exhale... and relax... you’re on holidays! ... more   less
