A short walk across the grass from your ground floor unit and you are at ‘Little Beach’ with a popular grassed picnic area, free BBQ’s, toilet facilities and play ground, a safe beach, great for kids to explore, swim and play (we have some beach toys for the kids enjoyment) also the beach is good for a spot of fishing.

If a relaxing coffee is what you’re after take a short walk up to the famous ‘Inner Light Tea Room’ with fresh scones and coffee whilst taking in the breathtaking water views of Port Stephens or relax with a drink on the deck at the Boathouse Marina.

Bay Parklands is definitely the ideal location to allow for easy walks into Nelson Bay Marina and shops, along the beach to Shoal Bay or just wander through the Fly Point Nature Reserve. The best of both worlds is within ten-minute walking distance, choice of either fish & chips and dine by the water or Diggers Club where you can get an a la carte or buffet meal. Take a ferry to Tea Gardens or organize a whale watching cruse. All this and more is at your fingertips.

Nice unit, great location


Nice, clean unit. Great location in Bay Park lands. Fairly well equipped, but we did need to buy a few wine glasses as the ones provided we're all tiny and we enjoy our wine! The sofas were pretty uncomfortable too so we spent most of our evenings outside. It was an enjoyable holiday and we'd book this unit again.

Great Location............


Great location and it was ideal for the kids. The queen bed was extremely comfortable. Unfortunately it did smell damp when we first arrived and the cushions in the loungeroom were covered in mould. The double bunk bed also squeaked loudly whenever you moved on it. The dining table was also very sticky and remained that way even though we tried to clean it. Great location but for the price we paid for Easter it didn't quite meet our expectations.

Great location and facilities


Have been going here for the past 24 years and find it a central location with good facilities

Comfortable with a great location


A well located apartment that is close to Little Beach and overlooking a park. It is spacious for a two bedroom unit and was well equipped for our stay. The queen bed is new and made for a great sleep. The car parks are spacious and easy to get in and out.

Nice location, poor house


Unit floors were filthy when we arrived. Tiles were oily/slimy and left the bottoms of feet black. Amenities of the location are great with a nice pool and spa and short walk to beach. Main bed was horrible and caused us really bad back pain. We ended up sleeping on the spare single mattress.

Great location


Had a great family holiday. Unit was very clean, is well equipped, bedding very comfortable, freshly painted. Ensuite was small, but worked for us. At these prices we would highly recommend this accommodation. We will definately book again. Very nice solar heated pool. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, lots of trees, plenty of shade.



We expected this to be a lovely place in a beautiful location and it exceeded all our expectations. Very clean and modern unit, very relaxing atmosphere set in manacured gardens straight across from the beach. As a family we loved it and can't wait to stay there again. Highly recommended.

Fantastic location


Had a great stay the unit was clean and in a fantastic area. I would recommend this place to stay.
