Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely time away together at serenity.

The accomodation was very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

Walking distance to shops restaurants.

And also to the little boathouse where we would go down for drinks and watch the dolphins come in very close

Excellent property with a COMPLETE holiday house

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay at Serenity at Nelson Bay. It is a very nice and comfortable house with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, spacious living and dinning area. Beds are comfortable with air-con, made a sweet dream on your holiday.

The owners are very generous to provide a COMPLETE kitchen with all necessities even little things like sugar, salt and oil. We did not need to worry all these especially you do not need to buy small quantity just for the holiday. Beach towels are included, it helps me to pack less for holiday. Kids enjoyed the board games, DVD and even bikes. Location is very close to town centre. My husband enjoyed the morning walk to buy coffee. I give them a LIKE.

Very well appointed unit.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Nelson Bay which was highlighted by the very well appointed unit at Serenity. The unit had a very homely and comfortable feel about it and so close to shops and beach/waterfront and great walking tracks around the seashore. Superb.

We really enjoyed our stay at "Serenity", Nelson Bay as the unit was very well appointed with all the home comforts you need on holiday. It had a neat homely feel about it and comfortable to live in. It was handy to shops, the marina and lots of seashore walks.

Family friendly- pool a huge hit

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Serenity, nice spacious place for 4 adults and two children aged 4 and 18 month. Fantastic location due to proximity to the marina and little beach. Little noisy at night being that close to the main road and neighbours dogs meant the garden areas always smelt like dog pooh.

The diggers RSL which was opposite was brilliant for children and delicious food and the local pool was great .
