After a warm, friendly welcome, we were really happy with our spacious, clean, cosy abode, and the firm, king-size comfortable bed. Loved the central location, with 2 beaches within walking distance and plenty of restaurants less than a 5 minute drive away. We managed to catch... More

Marty's is a hidden treasure. It is well located ,the rooms are spotlessly clean and very well appointed It has a nice pool and BBQ area. It is in a garden setting and within a short walk to two beautiful white sand beaches Highly recommended

We had a lovely few days away, staying at Marty's. The unit was sparkling clean, well set up, and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The weather was a bit cool while we were there and a comment I would make about the air-conditioner/heater was that it blew directly onto the vertical blinds which sent them rattling. This wasn't...

This place some how had great reviews but we had an average experience. perhaps it was the location or that the pics on the website didn't quite translate into the actual experience.

Our appreciation for your review. We are a little confused by your comments..... the majority of our guests love our location ... and it is only 5 minutes (maximum) by car to Nelson Bay or Shoal Bay. Little Beach is a 3minute stroll and Shoal Bay Beach only a 5 minute stroll .... both beaches are 'inside' the bay ....... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
