Great holiday stay

Jo Pausey

We really enjoyed our stay at Ruby’s Retreat, so did our fur baby. The house was very clean and had all the comforts for a great stay. It is in an idyllic location within walking distance to Shoal Bay and into Nelson Bay and of course Little Beach. We have already rebooked to return in March for another relaxing stay😉 And it is a rare find to find a great house where dogs of any size are allowed inside. Will definitely recommend. Jo


Beautiful home

Lee Giffin

We recently stayed at Ruby’s Retreat for two weeks. The house is lovely with plenty of room for the family and comfortable beds. It also has a large deck out the back which we used everyday. The back yard is completely enclosed for the children and fur babies. We will definitely stay there again. Our only suggestion would be to include Wifi for your guests.

Hi Lee, thank you so much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and would love to welcome you back in the future. Thank you, O'Meara Property.

Clean, Tidy and central for all amenities.

The house was very clean and tidy. The backyard was pleasant to sit on the back verandah for afternoon drinks and nibbles. The house is advertised as boat friendly....IT is NOT boat friendly. The driveway is too narrow and steep to get a boat into. The trailer bottoms out and won't physically get down the driveway. The lighting in the house is poor and the main bedroom has obviously had a roof leak so the room was very musty with an unpleasant odour. The house is overall a good package.

Hi Michael, Thank you for your review, We are currently in the process of having the roof fixed with the aftermath of the floods. We are sorry your boat didn't fit down the driveway. Thank you O'Meara Property



Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Ruby’s Retreat. Met all needs. Beautifully furnished and had everything one could possibly need. Sunny and bright with a lovely flat garden where the kids and dogs had lots of fun every day. A real delight.


Perfect little retreat!


The house is comfortable with everything you will need for a relaxing time away in Nelson bay. Easy walk to the beach, enclosed backyard so the kids can play and amazingly clean and renovated bathrooms. We really enjoyed our stay. Will be back for sure. You wont be disappointed with Rubys retreat.
