What guests are saying:

“Stuart’s apartment is really conveniently located in the heart of Shoal Bay. There are plenty of great restaurants available nearby as well as the Tomaree Head Lookout walk not far away. The balcony view is stunning and really does provide a beautiful sunset. The space is small but perfect for a couple or solo traveller.”

What guests are saying:

“This place was AMAZING! My partner and I had to go to Nelson Bay for work but would 100% return to Andrew’s place in the future for holiday (or work again). It’s a GREAT location (few minutes walk to the beach and a few more minutes to town). The views are spectacular which you can take in from the patio or pull up the blinds and enjoy from inside through the large windows. The place was immaculately clean and the decor was just beautiful. I cannot say enough great things about this place. We were very impressed. Also, Andrew responded to us very quickly and is very nice!”

What guests are saying:

“Very nice beachfront cottage in Soldiers Point. Fantastic terrace including grill, fully equipped kitchen that invites you to cook yourself. Fantastic sunrises and 100m behind the cottage you can experience very beautiful sunsets. We felt most comfortable in this cottage on our trip from Hervey Bay to Sydney and would love to book it again at any time.”
