Beach house holiday and short term accommodation.
The house generally gets refreshingly beautiful afternoon sea breezes from the ocean which is only 175m away. However for those really hot days the house has two 7.1kw split system air conditioning units, 6 ceiling fans and 6 floor fans.
This 4 bedroom 1950's style beach house sleeps 14 people in 11 separate beds and is available for holiday accommodation; it is also available for short term accommodation for professionals visiting Newcastle for work assignments.
The beach house does NOT have internet WiFi: but it does have books, board games, poker chips and decks of cards available for your entertainment. Plus Stockton Beach is only 175m from the house.
Smoking and Pets are not permitted at Stockton Beach House
Hen's and Buck's parties are not permitted to be held at Stockton Beach House.
Thanks for looking north of the river to lovely Stockton beach. Stockton is a 700 metre ferry ride from Newcastle CBD. Sooo close to the city.... yet a lifestyle away from it.
Stockton is a chilled out seaside town with a relaxed country feel to it. It has kilometres of long sandy beach to walk along, swimming pool, tennis courts, lawn bowls, flat terrain, wide roads and a great bike track - it is an ideal place for visitors to Newcastle to stay.
The house is less than 5 klm to Newcastle Golf Course and 43 klm from Horizons Golf Course at Salamander Bay Port Stephens.
There is a variety of casual dining venues to choose from: 3 hotels, 2 licenced clubs, 2 fish & chip shops, a pizza place and also Lexie's at the Beach. You can stay for a week and not eat at the same place twice.
The minimum booking period is generally 2 nights; but this can vary during peak holiday periods.
CHILDREN AND FAMILY GROUPS
Stockton Beach House is a family friendly house and children are welcome.
LARGE SAME GENDER GROUPS
I do not accept hens or bucks weekends but I do accept some large same gender group bookings;
The maximum number of guests for a same gender group is generally 11 people, not 14.
If a same gender group wishes to book the beach house then the photo ID of all members of the group must be provided and each member of the group must confirm that they accept the Terms & Conditions of Rental of the beach house.
The security bond for a same gender group is $1600 or $200 per person if the group is more than 8 people.
BEACH HOUSE DETAILS
Smoking and Pets are not permitted at Stockton Beach House
The house is spacious (180 square metres [12m x 15m in size]) and ideal for large family groups and for large sporting or work groups due to the number of discrete spaces within the house where people can gather together in smaller groups to socialise or relax.
The feedback I have received from all the large mixed gender groups who have stayed at Stockton Beach House is that groups of 12/14 do fit comfortably in the house without feeling crowded. However the same gender guy groups have suggested that I limit all guy groups to a maximum of 11 people to ensure they do not make the house feel overcrowded.
Groups have told me they like the fact that the large double roomed living/dining room (approx. 22sqm in size) is large enough that everyone can gather together in the same room to sit, relax and chat together as one large group; and they also liked being able to spread out over several rooms in smaller groups.
The house sleeps 14 people in 11 separate beds in 4 sleeping areas.

- 11 beds
- Four bed rooms
