Overview

About the property

This amazing pool-deck duplex is just metres from the most beautiful beach in Port Stephens. The property boasts a resort-style swimming pool and cabana RIGHT AT YOUR BACK DOOR, and is one of the most sensational beach houses in Australia - luxury accommodation for up to 6 adults (7 people including children).

With fabulous water views looking towards the north, 'RIPPLES' is an opulent, no-expenses-spared, resort-style duplex on Dutchies Beach. For those who don't already know, Dutchies is renowned as the most beautiful 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 duplex boasting three large bedrooms (one with en suite); two full bathrooms (the first is the en suite, the second is the main bathroom featuring a deep luxurious bath as well as shower, toilet and vanity); stylish open-plan living areas; private north-facing balcony with delightful beach and water views; fully-stocked, state-of-the-art kitchen; laundry; tropical pool and cabana (shared with only one other duplex); lock-up garage and incredible outdoor entertaining areas.

From this magnificent first-floor apartment, it's just a short stroll along the beautiful foreshore pathway, past the Marina and into the vibrant heart of Nelson Bay.

'RIPPLES on Dutchies 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.

Excellent, Beautiful Property and Features

  • 5 of 5

Just across the road from the beach. Lovely scenery. Walking distance to Marina and shops. Big spacious property. Enough room for all. Kids loved the pool. Defiantly staying here again. Thanks....

Great Mid Week break??

  • 5 of 5

Ripples was the most amazing place I have ever stayed in. We were there for a mid-week break to recharge our batteries, and what a delightful time we had. The apartment is gorgeous with everything you could possibly want. The beds were deliciously comfortable - slept like a log. We spent half our time enjoying the pool and the other half lying on the beach, which is just across the road. Ripples is so close to town and to everything else that we didn't need to drive anywhere. We will definitely be back.
