Castaways - opposite Shoal Bay Beach, with sensational views

Walk out of your apartment complex, cross the road and find yourself on the soft white sands of Shoal Bay Beach! This quiet and perfectly located holiday unit is just metres away from village shops, restaurants, bars, a bottle shop and newsagency. Take a stroll to the top of Tomaree Headland for sensational views over the pristine Port Stephens coastline, or enjoy the public picnic and BBQ facilities along the foreshore.

Castaway Beachside Holiday - location, location

Check in procedure excellent, property in original condition, could do with some updates - a decent oven would help, some repair work required, thought this would have happened prior to new renters moving in. Thorough clean required. Definitely a great family location - convenience, easy walk to shops, cafes, etc Nice walking options available - car rarely utilised during stay. Easy beach routine everyday, just by crossing the road.

DON'T STAY HERE IN SUMMER !!!

NO AIR CON IS A SIN AGAINST MANKIND. NO UNIT SHOULD BE LET WITHOUT IT. I NOTICED AIR CON ON A GROUND FLOOR UNIT - THE OWNER MAYBE ?!!! STIFFLING UNTIL LATE AFTERNOON. Fridge let milk spoil overnight and took a full day to freeze ice. Cockroach in main bedroom. Couldn't swing a cat in bathroom/toilet. Best location in town spoilt by a tightarsed owner. Photos looked good but very old fashioned in real life. Nothing spent for years.They couldn't even make the bloody beds !!!

Great view but every outdated interior

Check in was stressful , I was told the system was down and that’s why I had received no corespondents as to where I could pick up keys from , the view from the balcony of accommodation was amazing but the furniture was extremely old and tiny foot heater (only source of heating for entire unit )was dangerously old and damaged , I was also not informed prior to check in that I would have to make my own beds nor was it in advertising description.

We are terribly sorry to hear that you did not get any correspondence regarding key pick up, yes our systems were down but everything now is running smoothly. Thank you for letting us know about the fan, our apologies for the inconvenience, also for not receiving prior notice regarding bed makes. This has now been added to the property description. We look forward to having another opportunity to make amends and deliver an unforgettable experience to you.
