Marty's @ Little Beach

Location: Cnr Gowrie Ave & Intrepid Pl Nelson Bay
Virtual Tour View Virtual Tour

Location.Location. Spectacular Location ! Quietly nestled between two of Port Stephens most idyllic beaches but still close enough to the heart of all the Bays great restaurants and attractions, Martys is in the perfect location to do everything or....absolutely nothing at all !
Totally refurbished inside and out in August 2012 - you will be pleasantly surprised at the style, elegance and quality - not to mention the affordability !
The well traveled, new owners recognise that a truly memorable stay is not just about the quality of the bed linen or the ideal location but often about how well you are treated - the total experience.
From the moment you arrive at Martys you can expect hospitality... in the true sense of the word.
But dont take our word for it - see what some of our guests have said about their Martys experience on Trip Advisor. So when you arrive, leave the car (and your stress) in the car park - you wont be needing them - and take a two minute walk west to stunning Little Beach. Soft white sand, perfect swimming for the kids, boat ramp and one of the best scuba diving spots on the east coast.
A tad breezy today? No problem. Simply walk two minutes east and find a protected spot on the uncrowded Shoal Bay Beach - postcard perfect!
Take a big deep breath in.... now exhale... and relax... you are on holidays!
