Lots of privacy, good pool for adults and kids with good shade cloths. Some features missing in the cabin eg chopping boards or brush for washing up.

Like: very neat, quiet and compact. Family friendly. Closeness to both a child friendly beach and to the marina. Outdoor pool. Dislike: The reception is closed at 5pm and the after hour phone number is only contactable for emergencies. I was very surprised that an accomodation service can be run in this way. The caravans’ dump point was located right next to the entrance gate of the holiday park. We have to walk pass it every time we go in and out. It was not a very pleasant experience.

Just beautiful!

Pros: Peaceful beautiful outlook
Cons: Not much
Location: Convenient to sporting event we were attending, but far enough away for some time out
Magic outlook over Port Stephens from our very roomy Waterview Villa. Convenient but far enough away from the touristy parts of Port Stephens. Very reasonable rates compared to others nearby. We will stay again!

Quiet stay close to restaurants.

Pros: It was quiet.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Nice walks and a restaurant close by
We wanted to have a retreat and had one. It wasn't in peak season so the place was empty.

Glamping tents were a great choice

We stayed in one of the clamping tents which was a great experience. The bed was comfortable and we had nice water views (even though a big bush blocked our view a bit). Only a couple of things I would recommend for an even better rating; a quick wipe down of all surfaces and vacuuming/sweeping of the floors (also behind the furniture) would have been appreciated. Also the bbqs need to be cleaned properly. One of the two bbqs didn't work and the other one was too dirty to be used. I didn't bring the appropriate utensils and cleaning products to give it a proper clean. We ended up driving to a cafe to eat instead. But the staff were super friendly and the pool was lovely. Thanks for the great experience, would definitely come back!!

Very nice hotel

We enjoyed our stay in Thou Walla Sunset retreat our room is over looking the beach. The room amenities are complete, the sofa and the bed are soft and comfy. The hotel staff is considerate and understanding when we had a problem with the hotel booking. I will recommend this to friends and family.

This place requires a TLC

Pros: The location is ok.
Cons: The place should provide cutting boards in the kitchen and steak knives.
The outside veranda was covered with leaves and twigs. Cob webs were hanging on the ceiling. Dishwasher was not working. Light bulbs not working in some areas. The place is nice but requires a bit of TLC.
