Looking for the perfect laid-back beach house to enjoy while holidaying in Port Stephens? Look no further than The Sand! The awesome views over Shoal Bay Beach and Port Stephens Harbour are second to none, and you can stroll across the road and be on gorgeous Shoal Bay Beach in seconds. Shoal Bay Beach is renowned for being Port Stephens' most beautiful beach - thats why it's so often used in advertising for the area - and it's easy to see why it's so loved by all. This long, arcing beach swoops around from one of the volcanic headland peaks, and with this dramatic backdrop and the two-tone aqua and blue water, it feels like you're in the South Pacific or Whitsundays. You wont be competing for space on this vast beach - theres oodles of room to set up your sun shade and beach chairs and all the room you need to throw a frisbee around or have a game of beach cricket.
Regardless of the tide, Shoal Bay beach is always seaweed-free and perfect for swimming. The golden sands are infused with millions of tiny seashells, treasures that children have delighted in collecting for generations. Whether you want to play beach sports, use water crafts, build sandcastles, collect seashells or sit back and relax while gazing at the picture-perfect panorama, theres no better place to do it than Shoal Bay Beach. With your beach house just footsteps away, imagine the convenience of being able to leave the car at home, walk across the road to the beach and pop back to The Sand at any time to grab food, refreshments, a kayak or a holiday novel. Talk about the ultimate beach holiday luxury!
The Sand is also only a short walk to Shoal Bays shops, cafes, restaurants and Country Club and is a five minute drive to Nelson Bay town centre and marina. It's even located just a few hundred metres from cycle paths to walk, bike or scooter into Nelson Bay or out to Fingal Bay.
The Sand has the original character and charm of a traditional Aussie beach house. Sleeping up to 7 guests, the first floor has jaw-dropping views over the aqua blue waters of Shoal Bay and beyond. Despite its vintage charm some updated creature comforts include ceiling fans, free wi-fi and reverse cycle air conditioning. Adding to the coastal vibe are no-fuss timber floors throughout and comfortable furnishings. The lounge and dining area is open-plan, each seat eight and are blessed with the stunning water views.
Theres a bathroom and separate toilet, shared by the master bedroom, equipped with a king bed, the second bedroom with a queen bed and the third bedroom which has two single beds. The ground floor has a room with two singles off the lounge room. Please note there is just one bathroom so we recommend only 6 adults.
In keeping with the casual beachy aesthetic, the ground floor has uber cool and practical painted concrete floors. Theres a fourth bedroom with two single beds and another living area, perfect for the kids to use or when you just want your own space. Rounding out all the necessities is a laundry with washer and dryer and an outdoor courtyard with a BBQ, table and chairs and a sun umbrella.
