Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality for the wonderful 8 days. We seem to be one of the lucky ones in that we were new guests and can now see why so many return.

What a very special place you have! The location, design, decorations and facilities are all excellent. There was everything we needed and more. Peter, Anne, Jamie, Sarah & Lily - Sydney- December 2021

To say your place is absolutely amazing is an understatement. From your wonderful hospitality, the perfect little touches (those FANASTIC BOOKS you made) a super yummy breaky, adventures around the property, our new mate Macca to the set up of your place ( the pool, outdoor kitchen and the rest) We have enjoyed ourselves and have fallen in love...that we plan on coming back with our family in February!! Birubi Beach is beyond the best beach we have been to its a MUST for anyone visiting.  Tara & Dee - Wadalba- December 2020

Thank you so much for such an incredible holiday! Your house is beautiful and you made us feel so welcome & special and we will be back soon. We have made some amazing & priceless memories & LOVED every minute of it ! James, Carly, Vicky & Harrison- Miranda- December 2020

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The two of you have truly done above & beyond to make us feel welcome and to make our stay a happy, relaxing and memorable one. The children have absolutely LOVED all the animals and the joy that has come with getting to feed & cuddle them each day. We cannot thank you enough for your kindness & hospitality we are sad to be leaving but we look forward to holidaying with you again. Ryan, Kylee & family from Melbourne - January 2020

What an amazing time away ! You have a lovely home & property. The girls loved everything from pony rides, feeding all the animals, collecting eggs, oh and of course the swimming pool. I loved just staring at the gum trees and sky from the deck and listening to the wind blowing ( and occasional frog !) You have really thought of everything and go out of your way to make your guests welcome. Hopefully we'll be back again in the not too distant future ! Gabrielle, Richard & family - Sydney -November 2019

Its not often Mark is stuck for words, but our stay here with you at Beach Break has been out of this world. It is hands down the best & most relaxing holiday even with our daughter wanting to see the animals all the time. We are truly grateful for our time here and your hospitality & friendliness. A Christmas we will remember for years to come. Look forward to coming back in 2019. Mark, Lisa & Grace - Sydney December 2018

We are glad to finally have the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home. Our friends highly recommended we visit and you have surpassed all expectations from the moment we arrived. Thank you for providing such a beautiful, clean & entertaining stay for the whole family. We have made special memories during our stay especially with the animals, pony ride, & Macca. It was the perfect place to escape from the hustle & bustle of city life. WE WILL BE BACK SOON!!  Katherine, John, Sophie & Anneliese - Sydney Nov 18

The only thing I for finding this accommodation earlier!! This has definitely had myself & Nick speechless. Such an immaculate, beautiful and vibrant home. I can see why Janet & Dave have such amazing reviews online and well spoken messages left in this diary. Thank you so much for making us feel welcomed from our first meeting all the way to the end. Thank you for an amazing first experience in Port Stephens that we will never forget. We will definitely be sad to be returning to Sydney though cannot wait to return. Will be recommending to all our family and friends.  Teo- Sydney Sept 2018

This was a dream holiday! We all loved our stay here including my usually very shy 20 month old niece- she felt right at home the moment we arrived. From the gentle friendly animals to the beautifully appointed home, the attention to detail made us feel welcome & relaxed immediately. Janet has thought of everything to make you feel comfortable and at home- fresh flowers, big breakfast- even a stuffed toy on the babys bed - there were so many little things that made our stay special. Jenny from Newcastle -July 2018

There are no words to describe how wonderful this B & B is. The scenery is amazing, the facilities are above expectations but above all the hospitality of Janet & Dave is like you are part of their family. The holiday retreat is a true testament of your passion, hard work and dedication to providing your guests with a 10 star luxury getaway. We look forward to coming here again. Kylie from Wollongong May 2018

Thanks for making our second visit here just as relaxing & memorable as the first. Our 3 year old said to us today "Can we live here forever"..we feel the same way. Every detail thought of and nothing is too much trouble. We are sure we will see you again. Stuart- Menai April 2018

Its has taken us more than 15 years to find the perfect holiday for our special needs daughter & her sister. We have now found it ! What a most wonderful place you have fulfilling every wish we could all hope for. The animals brought us great joy & the pony ride just topped it off. Thanks a millon..we will be back ! Chris & Dawn - Newcastle February 2018

Where do we start? When reading the reviews online and seeing all the 5 stars you wonder how! Then you arrive & from the moment we met you and you showed us the home and surrounds we knew why. Thank you for making this our best trip to the Nelson Bay area. Your house has been perfect & hospitality awesome. The experience the kids had with the animals made life long memories. Thanks for letting us feed the animals, collect the eggs & for taking the kids on a pony ride. Hope to see you again in 2019. Justine - Sydney Jan 2018

We stayed here for 2 nights and it surpassed our expectation in every aspect. It has facilities comparable to that of a 5 star resort & everything that we need were well taken care of/prepared. I can tell the owners have put in a lot of effort & thought into this B & B to give guests the best possible experience. Oh and how can I not mention the adorable farm animals. My young nephews absolutely loved them. We will definitely recommend this B & B. Junming - Singapore- May 2017

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by property owners and care takers Janet and Dave for a grand tour, i knew this stay would be a memorable one. The property was immaculately presented, modern, very clean, amenities of top quality and could pass for being new. Everything descibed in the advertisement was true and we couldn't be more happier with our decision to pick Port Stephens Beach Break B&B. We definitely will be re-visiting. Thanks for the memories! Kev Sept 16

As a staff member at Stayz, I get to look at a lot of amazing properties on a daily basis, and Port Stephens Beach Break B&B really stood out among the pack. Janet and Dave are some of the nicest and most welcoming people, and really made sure the amazing holiday home had everything we needed for us and our two small kids - from cots, high chairs and toys for the kids to play with, even bacon and eggs for a BBQ breakfast! The house itself was beautiful, the private pool was excellent and the beaches made it a perfect summer holiday…..and having a big relaxing spa available and a beautiful indoor fireplace means we’d be keen to return in winter as well! Our kids absolutely loved the animals, they would wake up early every morning to go out and say hello and feed them. Topping it off with a pony ride for our 2 year old daughter, I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. We’ll be back for sure! Michael- May 2016

We enjoyed our stay and wish we were here longer. I know why Macca get mentioned so much in this guest book, he is a delight! Such a great companion. Our whole weekend was amazing, pool, spa (favourite) animals, Darcy + his friends, fresh eggs, everything you can possibly imagine in a holiday home. This was our 1st home away stay & you guys have certainly set the bar high ! We will definitely be back soon - Kristy & Dave - Newcastle - April 2016

Thank you so much for an amazing holiday! We had such a lovely, relaxing time lazing by the pool and enjoying everything your wonderful home had to offer- our son we'll be sorry to say goodbye to his new best mate Macca. The pony ride was another wonderful experience for our little boy. We couldn't fault anything in the house the place is just beautiful. We will be back for sure ! Novak, Sioban & family - January 2016

This has been our most enjoyable family holiday yet. Staying on a farm where the kids could feed the animals, collect eggs from the chickens, eat tomatoes from the veggie garden and go on a pony ride was amazing and more than we could ask for! There was never a moment for the kids to be bored and it was just what we needed after a very busy year! Janet and Dave were lovely and made us feel very comfortable and at home. We will definitely be back again!Steve & family from Revesby- December 2015

We have just returned from spending our Christmas at Beach Break B&B and have to say we had the most amazing time. We stayed 7 nights with four kids (8,6,2,0) and it was the best holiday we have ever had. Everything was thought of, making our holiday stress free and relaxing. Cot, high chair, pool toys and even a laminated collage of all the farm animals with alpaca wool to take back for news!! The kids loved the animals, especially their pony ride on Henry. Being Christmas Janet even arranged a beautiful Christmas tree, magic reindeer food & reindeer poop on the lawn for Christmas morning!! The pool was perfect and the spa was amazing!! We will definitely be back again. Thank you so much from Marcus, Kate & family December 2015

You guys are responsible for an amazing holiday! Port Stephens is beautiful...and your hospitality is second to none. Our kids loved all the animals (although I think Macca was the favourite!) The expression on the kids faces when they collected the eggs from thechooks was priceless! My daughter is still talking about the pony ride...I could go on but would run out of paper!! Great spot, awesome hosts and the very best of what Australia has to offer! WE WILL BE BACK! Dean, Alison, Amelie and Josh. April 2014.

Thank you very much Janet and Dave! Your place is amazing and you have done a fantastic job at setting it up so that guests can stay and completely relax. And you know what? That is exactly what we did! Relax, relax, relax! We have thoroughly enjoyed staying at Beach Break and will be recommending to family and friends. With a perfect outdoor area and just a skipping stone to nice, clean beaches; what more could you want! Thanks again, it has been a blast. Jacob, Jasmine, Ziggy and Grace. February 2014.

Thank you once again - even better second time around! The perfect family holiday where beach, farm and resort come together to make it a time enjoyed by all. Thank you for the ride on Henry, it was great to meet the energetic Bentley and we look forward to meeting Mr Darcy next time we visit. Your hospitality is so appreciated. Thanks again and we look forward to visiting again soon and exploring more of beautiful Port Stephens. Mark, Carla, Biana and Heath. January 2014.

Where do I start? Everything was way beyond expectations. The attention to detail was so professional and delivered comfort & convenience equal to none. The kids loved Macca & Bentley and they became best friends throughout our stay. If you want to experience farm life, with luxury and pampering, then this is the place for you. We will be back! Ian, Annik Sienna, Tiana & Adam. January 2014.
