White, bright and with a contemporary coastal feel, The Haven will have you feeling relaxed and in holiday mode from the moment you arrive. Enter via the private driveway where the landscape opens to reveal your own secluded holiday haven, surrounded by native bushland. This large, fully air-conditioned home is suitable for multi-generational families, groups or two families coming together to enjoy a private coastal escape.

Make the most of the bountiful local produce from the sea and pick up some fresh prawns and oysters and sit back and enjoy the sunset from the comfort of your balcony with your favourite drink in hand.

Drawing inspiration from its coastal bushland setting, a contemporary stone façade opens to entry level with a generous reception area. Here you will find a beautifully appointed queen bedroom, with a porcelain lined ensuite that gives a nod to the organic stone outside. Also on this level, a large living area with a huge, comfy sofa and large flat screen TV to make the most of family movie nights or a terrific entertainment area for the kids.

Ascend the wide stairway to the upper level where the floor to ceiling glass reveals a sanctuary of light and space and basks in the surrounding views. There is plenty of space here to spread out and enjoy combined living/dining with thoughtfully appointed furniture and guest comfort in mind. Soak up the view from the covered outdoor balcony set high to capture the cooling afternoon breeze. A fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge with icemaker, filtered water on tap and a large, upright gas cooker will make catering for your group a breeze.

Radiating from the central living area is the master suite, with king bed, sumptuous walk-in robe and an ensuite with a huge, deep bath to soak all your cares away. A generous second bedroom offers a double bed and the third bedroom two single beds. The main bathroom is on this level, and offers a second, full-sized bath and walk in shower, together with a separate guest powder room, study nook and laundry.

Step outside into the cool confines of the outdoor undercover, dining area that takes in the delightful bush views. There is another large, outdoor sofa here for break out space, or to enjoy an afternoon snooze after long sun-soaked days at the beach. The kids with love the outdoor cubby house and mum and dad can relax knowing the kids are safe in the fully fenced back yard.

For the keen angler or for simple family boating fun, there is ample room for boat and trailer parking at this property and great running & walking trails through coastal forest, directly to the beach from your backyard.

Hailed as a blue-water paradise by nature lovers and anglers alike, Port Stephens has something for everyone. Famous for its white sandy beaches you will be spoiled for choice as you take in its scenic waterways swimming, fishing, dolphin-watching, snorkelling or just relaxing and soaking up the sun. Watch out for the gentle giants migrating from May to November when you can spot whales from the shore or from the many elevated coastal vantage points. For land lubbers there are plenty of spectacular bushwalks, sand-dune adventures, the local zoo or the Toboggan Park for a fun-filled day with the kids.

If all this activity is making you hungry enjoy a leisurely stroll up to the Anchorage Port Stephens and try a wood- fired pizza for lunch from the Galley Restaurant and take in the awesome views of the bay. If something a little more formal is required, the Red Herring restaurant is located here and you can enjoy some cocktails at Moby’s beforehand. A little further afield are the many restaurants dotted around Nelson Bay and so too is the renowned Murrays Brewery and easy access to the Hunter Valley Wineries. However, you choose to spend your time, The Haven is perfectly placed to make the most of your time in beautiful Port Stephens.
