Nestled on the north shore of Port Stephens, Hawks Nest is an unspoilt coastal village just 2 hours north of Sydney where dolphins play and koalas sleep.
If you're looking for a commercial holiday, Hawks Nest is not for you... but if nature and unspoilt beaches and bays, cafes on the water, biking, fishing, boating, golf and tennis sound more like your thing then this could be your dream vacation.
The Boathouse is a tastefully well appointed, well planned beach house and is a home from home.
The small but important matters that make your holiday house a home have all been considered. Lots of big pans, sharp knives, heaps of bowls and dishes, everything you need to cook up a storm if you so desire. Use the Weber or the gas barby or both!

My husband, myself and a friend have just come home from The Boathouse. We stayed from Monday to Friday and didn't want to leave. Great house! Extremely comfortable and so well appointed.
