Rental Home
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 doze. 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 equipped and planned beach house and is a home from home. The deck has wonderful river views. 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!

The Boathouse is a tastefully, well appointed, well equipped and planned beach house and is a home from home. The deck has wonderful river views. 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! There is a fenced backyard which is great for children and well behaved pets, please ask about your pet. Just around the corner from the white sand safe bay beach and on the river, this north facing light filled house is a delight. Sit on the deck and take in the view and watch the boats pass and the dolphins swim by. Four verandahs, off the master bedroom, lounge, rumpus and hallway allow for total al fresco living. HIgh ceilings and fans ensure cooling sea breezes in the summer months and the wood fire in the mild winter is a treat. Coming to stay at The Boathouse is easy, it's the leaving that's always hard. Please note that local Council guidelines are very strict re. excess noise. The Boathouse is not intended for parties, extra visitors or large groups of people. Our aim is for you to have a wonderful experience whilst respecting neighbours and by-laws. Thanks so much.More

About the neighborhood
Winda Woppa is a leafy peninsula in Hawks Nest a sleepy little town just north of Newcastle. Winda Woppa is a water wonderland with the river on one side, the bay beach on the other, and a surf beach 5 minutes walk away. It is a hidden secret where nature abounds. Nearby Tea Gardens, a bike ride away - has waterfront cafes galore and a Coles supermarket for provisions to complement the great IGA in Hawks Nest. We love buying local and the quality's great. Biking, golf, surfing, swimming, fishing, boating, walking and beach bumming are all great Hawks Nest pursuits!
Getting around
Bring the bikes! Everywhere is flat and accessible.
