Loved staying here

Maria Gadelkerim

We had a great time staying at the poplars. The pool was beautiful and the unit is so close to everything in nelson Bay. Would love to see some out door furniture added to unit 13 though.. most other units had tables and chairs outside. Apart from that we had a great time. Would definitely be back again!


Great Stay.

Julie Edwards

The property was very clean and secure. It had everything we needed. It was close to the Marina and Nelson Bay shopping centre.


Great apartment


Very clean with beautiful views. Has everything u need


Unit had too many stairs 15 from front of unit at


There were no directions to how to access unit Receptionist wasn’t helpful at all not impressed with lack of information 15 stairs at front and at least 20 we were told there was a couple from garage didn’t make things easy no clothes dryer working and no heating got quit cold of a night my husband had came home very sick from being too cold we wouldn’t recommend your company to anyone supply’s were very skimky a lot of dos and don’ts but no help where we need a bit of help we would like a part refund for the anguish you caused up


Easy access to the pool.


Booked 6 months ago. Well worth the wait. Clean and tidy.


Pleasant unit


This is the fifth time we have stayed at the Poplars over the last 20 years. This is a nicely renovated, clean looking and spacious unit which has been tastefully decorated. Furniture and bedding are getting a bit old though. The blue lounge shown in the photo has been replaced with a brown lounge and seems to be the source of the musty odour whenever you come into the unit. Previously owned by a smoker? My daughter complained that in the 2nd bedroom her bed squeaked every time she moved. Kitchen could have had a few more items but overall a pleasant unit to stay in.


Very Adequate


We were on the whole happy with the unit & definitely the location. We went in Winter and the unit did get very cold at night, and there was no heating. It was a great location for the kids. We would recommend the real estate notifying people of the height restrictions with the parking, as we took our 4WD & could not fit under the pipe in the allocated parking positions. Luckily someone else was away & we were able to use their spot.


Some imperfections, overall very good.


If your first priority is a magnificent view, then choose number 16 (my son and family were in that one). Number 13 is ground floor, with a much nicer layout than 16. We spent the majority of our time in it. It's better for kids, as you don't have to worry about the balcony, and there is a large grassed area immediately outside where they can play as you sip on your wine. It's a short stroll down the Walk to the Cruise terminal, the Marina, and Fly Point. A very nice walk is from Fly Point to Little Beach. The unit was well equipped (hint: hire linen if your budget is up to it, it's so much easier) and comfortable. I thought the big brown lounge was great. The bunk does squeak which can be irritating. Bed was comfortable, bedrooms a very generous size. In fact, the whole apartment is spacious compared to others I have stayed in. My son has decided that, next time, he will book 13, and I can book 16!!!! One thing I did have to do on arrival was wash the tiled floors. Perhaps the rental office could make a habit of having floors washed the day before arrival, if the property hasn't been occupied for a few weeks, as dust and grit inevitably comes in. Overall, if you were looking at one of the cheaper options (eg Highpoint where I've stayed before) pay the extra for the comfort. But you should be aware that it isn't airconditioned, which 16 is.


Quiet place


The location was lovely, quiet and clean. The only downfall was it has no air conditioning, the nights were to hot we couldn't sleep. The kids room has no ceiling fan so we had to go and buy a fan as my little girl could not sleep because of the heat. Excluding the heat it was beautiful.


Good position


The unit is clean and in a good position and walking distance to the marine area and shops . The lounge in the picture is not the actual one . The true lounge is large , brown and extremely uncomfortable to sit on . The bed is not very comfortable either . The kitchen is well fitted out and has all you need to make a meal . No fan in 2nd bedroom , the unit would benefit from air conditioning for summer


Average accommodation


The positives were it was close to town, good spot near the pool. The negatives, the shower head was broken, the room with the bunks had a light from outside shining in it so it was lit up like daylight at night until around 3am. The bunk was really squeaky, the mattress and what was left of the mattress protector were disgusting. At night we had bugs (cockroaches and crickets) crawling all over us and our beds. One roll of toilet paper was supplied, not sure we were supposed to take our own, but we had to do a special trip to get some as our search for some in the unit came up empty. It was a nice looking unit as such, but failed to feel nice, due to the icky factors mentioned above.


Good but a little disappointing


The unit was convenient to town but unfortunately was not very clean. The floor was dirty, the mattress protectors were very dirty, the bunk bed on the bottom was very squeaky and there were cockroaches in the kitchen.I tried to use the dryer on our final night but it was very noisy and was unable to use it. I would stay at the Poplars again but not unit 13 as it was next to the rubbish and extremely rancid at times. The young man at the counter when we left was also quite rude. I will give O'Meara property one more go and then will consider going elsewhere.
