Serenity at its best

Brian Krumm

Thank you for the most beautiful stay The cottage was very clean and tidy with all comforts catered for. 3 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to the village Definately be back


Awesome accomodation

Peter Forsyth

This place is fantastic, loved the location and the facilities in the house. We would be happy to stay again. Loved the 'vibe' of the decor and layout. I would highly recommend this property. Close to town and Duchies beach. The place was spotlessly clean.

Hi Peter, Thank You for your lovely review. We hope to see you in the future Thanks O’Meara Property

Lovely house and location

Linda Mayes

We really enjoyed our stay. The house had a warm feeling on entering and was tastefully furnished. Just one thing for dog owners, if you have an old dog or arthritic the back stairs are steep to the lawn so would take away their freedom to come and go from inside the house. Beds were extremely comfortable and doonas and pillows spotless.


Great for a quiet getaway

Antony Bolton

Easy to find, house in generally good condition, amazing back garden that would be great for dogs, walking distance to all relevant locations in Nelson's Bay. Bathroom is one of the highlights although odd-sized bath that is more of an over-sized shower tray. My only criticism would be that the furniture in the lounge is more like garden furniture than a proper couch you can curl up on for the night and that the house comes without many basic household items e.g bath-mat

Great location, well appointed home, clean neat and tidy would definitely go back again only for longer...

Lovely house and great location, Highly recommend.


quiet and comfortable

Ruth Kunde

Our stay at Dutchies Haven was one to remember. Clean and comfortable, the cottage provided an ideal base in a quiet, convenient location. The puppies enjoyed the large backyard and the long walks we could undertake right from the front door.



We had an enjoyable weekend here. Fantastic location and great that it is pet friendly. Easy communication


Great holiday house


Excellent property but advertised as pet friendly only for small dogs, we have a medium size dog and kept escaping shame we could have had a more relaxing holiday


Our Wonderful Stay


We had the most wonderful stay for 3 nights. Very relaxing and comfortable cottage, close access to the beach, we had many beautiful long walks to the beach and close to the shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dutchies Haven and will definitely book again to stay. Thankyou so much for providing us one of the most relaxing and fun weekends we have had in a long time. Kind Regards Chris & Craig & (Molly our little dog)


Great Location


The location is great, close to the beach. House is good for families with children. The only problem with our stay was house was extremely dusty, under the beds, blinds. The oven/grill/bbq was not cleaned well, they just put clean foil over it.


Very basic house


House has great location but that’s about it. Very dark, very basic, oven did not work. Deck does not have any shade or covering from elements. Enclosed yard is hard to see from the deck because of the trees which does not make it kids friendly. Laundry is outside down the stairs in the basement. Lounge couches are very old and uncomfortable. Could’ve been a good house but needs a lot of updating


A home away from home in a great location


The house is well equipped & spacious with a large backyard. It is in a quiet location which is only a stones throw from Dutchies Beach. We had a fantastic time and will be back!
