Great potential!

  • 3 of 5

The house is generally very well set-up. The kitchen is spacious and user-friendly.

The bathroom has a lovely design but we found it really frustrating the toilet seat and shower seal were broken. Great location.

Beautifully & thoughtfully done out

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two girls for an event on Bar Beach last weekend and could not have been happier with our choice. We've stayed at Crown on Darby, and other Newcastle hotels in the past and this was far, far superior in space, privacy and character, for about the same price. It's clearly been recently decorated, with a salty, nautical, shabby chic vibe, it all feels so thought through and considered, with no expense spared. A perfect little holiday house, 5 minutes walk from the beach, funky Darby Street, or the shopping centre at The Junction. Cosy and classy, with everything you need. Thank you so much, we'll definitely be back.

Stone's Throw is a gorgeous 2 bedroom property - so close to Darby St shops and cafes and an $8 cab

Stone's Throw is a gorgeous 2 bedroom property - so close to Darby St shops and cafes and an $8 cab ride to Honeysuckle Wharf restaurants. We only stayed for one night but definitely want to come back for two nights so we can use the BBQ!Gorgeous property!
