About the property

Amazing 6-bedroom beach house with swimming pool and just opposite the beach.

Absolutely magnificent, 6-bedroom, 4-bath, air-conditioned beach house with tropical swimming pool and cabana.

Simply THE BEST!!! Luxury accommodation for up to 12 adults (13 people including children).

With fabulous water views looking towards the north, 'Beach Palace' is an opulent, no-expense-spared, resort-style home on Dutchies Beach. For those who don't already know, Dutchies is renowned as the most beautiful family beach in Port Stephens and, being a bay beach, it's relaxing for adults and safe for young children.

Nestled in one of Port Stephens' most prestigious residential streets - only metres from the pristine, white sands and crystal clear waters of Dutchies - sits this remarkable, modern beach house boasting six large bedrooms (two with en suites); four full bathrooms (each floor has an en suite attached to the master bedroom, plus each floor has a main bathroom featuring a deep luxurious bath as well as shower, toilet and vanity); stylish open-plan living areas; two private north-facing balconies with delightful beach and water views; two fully-stocked, state-of-the-art kitchens; two laundries; tropical pool and cabana; double lock-up garage and incredible outdoor entertaining areas. From this magnificent property, it is just a short stroll along the beautiful foreshore pathway, past the Marina and into the vibrant heart of Nelson Bay.

Take a look at our picture gallery and you will see how great Beach Palace really is. And if you want to see more photos, search for 'Beach Palace in Nelson Bay' and check out the images.

Beach Palace at Dutchmans Beach is the ideal place to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy an unforgettable family holiday, or for a responsible group of friends to experience the best of Port Stephens in absolute luxury.

NOTE: 'Beach Palace' IS AN EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAY DESTINATION - IT IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. NO TEENAGE GROUPS ALLOWED. NO ROWDY PARTIES ALLOWED! Weddings, corporate functions, schoolies and pets are NOT permitted under any circumstances. And an $800 refundable bond is required to be paid 14 days prior to check-in as a security measure.

Although each bed has a decorative doona and matching pillows; linen (sheets and pillow slips) and towels are NOT provided. If you do not want to bring your own, these can be rented locally for a fair price (as can baby requirements such as cots and highchairs) - details upon request. Beach Palace has 5 queen bedrooms plus the 6th has a double bed with a single bunk above it (3 bedrooms on each floor).

And if you want the VIP treatment: for an extra tariff, we can organise our Palace Package for you (sorry, not available in high season), where your required beds are made with crisp white sheets and pillow slips prior to your arrival.

This gorgeous three-storey house is all about space, luxury, beach-life and fantastic water views. Before we approve your booking, you will receive via email the complete T&Cs which you must agree to prior to paying. The Welcome Folder at the house tells you all about the best of everything in Port Stephens and gives detailed directions on how to get around.

As you might expect; Beach Palace is not cheap. However, when you walk into the home for the first time, you will immediately realise... IT IS WORTH EVERY CENT.

It's so good, that this was our 2nd stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such an awesome property of a larger group and yes, this was the 2nd time that we have stayed at The Beach Palace.

Close to the beach, close to town, but once inside.....miles away from the day to day. Highly recommended!!!!

Perfect relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is great! Views to the beach, lots of space and a beautiful outdoor area. We went for a few walks, didn't need to use the car much. I would recommend to anyone. Hopefully will be able to go back at the end of the year!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (6 adults and 4 children) had a wonderful holiday at Beach Palace, the location is excellent, lovely quiet area adjacent to Dutchies Beach which is excellent for small children, but close enough to the Nelson Bay to enjoy a 15 minute headland walk which ends right at the marina, restaurants etc.

The home is well fitted out with quality furnishings and the kitchen is excellent, everything you need for your catering needs. The pool is an added bonus and kept the children entertained while the adults relaxed in the cabana. The house layout is actually 2 separate luxury apartments so there is plenty of space and privacy, bedrooms and bathroom are generous, and several different areas to have a meal or drinks. The house works very well as a combined home for family gatherings. I could highly recommend this property for those looking for quality accommodation in the port Stephens area. The booking process was very smooth.

Great Property and very nice owner

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this amazing property. Close to the beach and very versatile interior layout make this property very appealing and if we come back to Port Stephens will definitely stay here again. Owner is also super nice helping with providing clear instructions and the house is prepared with all items to suit our needs.
