The SpaceThis is a self contained 3 bedroom unit, in the beautiful village of Nords Wharf. You will have all own facilities including: - linens and towels (BYO option for a discounted rate) - a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, gas cooktop) - bathroom with bath, shower & toilet. - an entertaining area out the back with magnificent views of the sunset. The space comfortably fits six people in three rooms: two rooms with queen beds and one with two single beds (all with innerspring mattresses). The place is modest and comfortable, with bamboo floors throughout the living space and carpet in the bedrooms. We renovated a few years ago so the kitchen is nice, and some small things have not been completely finished, so don't expect brand new condition! If you choose to bring your own linen (bed linen and towels) we can discount the price by 10%. Please send through an enquiry (BEFORE YOU BOOK) to discuss / arrange. Guest AccessThe instructions regarding the key to unlock the place are on a separate page on this website, and are visible once you book. WiFi is complimentary and fast. We have a herb garden, a passionfruit vine and a lemon tree, you're welcome to pick fresh from them if they're fruiting! The backyard is a shared space with everyone so you are free to use it. Parking is out the front. Interaction with GuestsYou're on holidays so you won't be disturbed.

Also nearby is The Lakehouse Cafe at Murrays Beach, which offers a great menu, open for breakfast and lunch. Catho Pub is an historic hotel with amazing views and good pub food. Getting AroundAs there is limited public transport, having a car is strongly advisable. Nord's Wharf is about an hour north of Sydney, and just 30 minutes south of Newcastle. There is plenty of on street parking at the property. Other Things to NoteThere is a TV there but no DVD player yet. (That is on our shopping list.) Down in the backyard there is a separate granny flat which is permanently rented out to a gentleman called Troy. There is also a neighbourhood possum that occasionally runs around the back deck at night (as they are nocturnal animals). This may sound like people walking around upstairs, but if you can spot him, he will eat apples and other fruits out of your hands! At the conclusion of your stay, if you could take the sheets (not the doona covers) off the bed/s you have used, the pillow cases off the pillows, as well as collect your used towels, and put them in the laundry hamper in the bathroom, that would be a huge help to us!
