“Perfect Location !”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This accommodation was well located and very close to the beach. The reception staff were very obliging as were any locals we asked for help. Plenty to see and do here. The room was well furnished and the bathroom area large. The bed was comfy and we would stay here again !!!

Room Tip: We stayed in 10a and you could see to the sea.

Our trip to Port Stephens would not be perfect without our overnight stay at Marty's. The room was great along with friendly and welcoming service (Jenn). It was a very pleasant experience to stay at Marty's, me and my partner will definitely return to Marty's for the next trip to Port Stephens.

Loved our stay at Martys at Little Beach. Perfect for families with little ones. Great facilities inc heated swimming pool, fantastic BBQ facilities and infant playground. Short walks to superb sunsets over the bay and shoal bay beach. We will definitely be returning soon.

We spent 5 great nights at Marty's. Our kids loved the playground and the heated pool ! We loved that it was all enclosed and they were safe to play and make new friends. We felt very welcome and the place was very, very clean. Can't wait to go back !

We regretfully had to cancel a reservation at this accommodation due to a family bereavement.
The full amount was refunded immediately without any cost to us.
Sometimes cancellations are unavoidable and we really appreciated the courteous manner in which this process was undertaken.
We hope to return in the near future and look forward to a pleasant stay.

At Marty's we do understand that sometimes a reservation has to be cancelled. Although we have a cancellation policy at all times we try to be understanding of the situation. ( It's the little things that count !).
We sincerely hope that we will have the chance to welcome you to Marty's in the future.!

Amazing place. Friendly staff, they really go out of their way to make you happy. We stayed on the ground floor and it was handy next to the pool. The pool was heated, sooooo good. I would recommend to anyone into quality accommodation.

Marty's has excellent reviews, and they are absolutely deserved! We (family of four) stayed for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The room was clean and stocked with the essentials. The rooms had ceiling fans and loads of windows so it was easy to control the temperature to be comfortable.

The rooms are very modern - tile floors, updated and comfortable furniture, free wi-fi that's reliable and speedy (except in the evenings when usage increases). Window shades are obviously quite new. DVDs are available to borrow (for free) from the office.

Little Beach is a two-minute walk in one direction and another beach is three minutes in another direction. They also provide a heated swimming pool, good for those less than perfect beach days or even getting in a final dip before turning in for the night.

The BBQ is available, clean, and stocked with tools. It gets cleaned every day. Except for the birds outsdie, the hotel is very quiet.

The owners take pride in their hotel, and it clearly shows. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

The two items to note:
- Marty's is advertised as a self-contained apartment. Your room will /not/ be cleaned or made up daily. You will get clean towels every second day and room refreshing weekly. If you expect someone to clean up for you, this isn't the place for you.
- Complementary laundry facilities are available but you must provide laundry soap. There is only one washer and one dryer, so it frequently is not available during the opening times of 8am-5pm. There is a clothes line, but it isn't clear if it's available for community usage. The staff uses some of the lines during the day. A trying rack is available in the room and is a great addition.

Room Tip: All rooms are near the pool, but it closes at 8pm, so this isn't an issue.

Many thanks for your great review ... it is very much appreciated.
Our apologies if there was no clothes washing detergent .... we do provide this for our guests and we obviously hadn't replaced ... usually under the laundry tub !
Hope to welcome you back one day !

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
