Great experience at bali in the bay

Bali in the bay is close to the beach and to the town centre shops. Bali in the bay offers a spacious, comfy, relaxing and luxurious place to stay.

Nicely away from main town, and close to beach

Pros: Authentic Bali style apartment... Very clam and inviting and private. Clean and well maintained
Cons: Maybe an extra packet of muesli for consecutive nights stay as I thought it was including every morning. I only read the fine print after we left.
Location: Secure, private, quiet yet still local to all shops at Nelsons Bay, and Shoal Bay. Lovely walk to the beach and Nice to have Anzac Park opposite.
Secluded enough away from the hustle bustle of town, but close enough to walk or ride to all the activity valuable in Shoal bay. Lots of various bits of info including things to see and do available for Port Stephens and surrounds. Kitchen well supplied with cooking facilities if required and adequate coffee and amenities. Loved the Champagne and bintang in the fridge and muesli for the first morning!

10 year Anniversary Getaway

We absolutely loved our stay at "Bali at the Bay". The Nirwana apartment was immaculate and the perfect choice for a romantic stay. Loved all the small details from the incense, to the bath robes, candles and the Balinese decorations. Jenni the host was so welcoming at check in. Would highly recommend to all. We will definitely be back!

Relaxing Balinese getaway

We stayed at the Nirwana apartment (upstairs) and it was beautiful and so relaxing! There's a gorgeous beach at the end of the street (only a 2min walk!) Bali at the bay is also closely located to the main shops and marina (about 2km) and we comfortably walked there several times. The apartment is beautiful and reminded me of Bali. The hosts Grant and Jenni were great and allowed us a late check-out which was awesome! There's a beautiful spa too! The whole atmosphere of Bali at the bay is serenity and you don't want to leave! Highly recommend and will definetly be back!

A little slice of Heaven

Pros: All of the points above.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Great location and you could go, swimming, fishing, shopping, boating, whale or dolphin watching and many places to dine out etc.
Bali at the Bay was a little slice of Heaven that was so relaxing and enjoyable. Everything was neat and tidy with additional extras that are not in most other retreats. For example, flowers and candles in every room, a two person spa, separate bedrooms, a good fitted out kitchen, several verandahs to either lay around or sit and take in the surroundings and a two minute walk to the beach etc. It was a self contained unit that was well fitted out in a Balinese theme, so it felt like a Bali retreat right here in our own back yard. The atmosphere was peaceful and calming, so it was a wonderful retreat to get away and relax. Plus there was so much to do close by - if you wanted to venture out. I would certainly recommend it to anyone and I will certainly be back again.

Great little Balinese house near the beach.

Pros: Atmosphere.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: A few minute's walk to Shoal Bay beach. Longer walk or short drive to Nelson Bay, where there are many restaurants and cafes.
We went there for a wedding anniversary, and literally just relaxed! The entire house has been built around genuine Balinese timbers and artifacts, which really adds to the relaxing ambiance. There are the usual facilities: kitchen, air con, huge bathroom, etc, as well as an outside barbeque.

Idylic Location and Relaxing Place to stay

Pros: Hard to find anything to criticise.
Cons: Only thing missing was Foxtel and the owner advised that he was probably going to install this shortly.
Location: Lots of great small coastal towns nearby (5-10 mins drive), including Nelson Bay and plenty of bushwalks and beach walks, whale watching etc.
Wonderful expereince in a gorgeous house with superb Bai style decor compelmented by the leafy setting opposite bushland with native birds and 2 minute walk to Shoal Bay beach.
