Port Stephens is a perfect romantic getaway – quaint sandy beaches, turquoise waters, calm and serene environment, great food and wine, and friendly and hospitable people. So, make your Sydney tours an intimate one.
Romance is as old as the evolution of the first humans. Times have changed, and the forms of romantic preferences have also changed but love remained as it has been. William Shakespeare said in Love’s Labour’s Lost, “When love speaks, the voice of all the gods makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.”
It must be the sweetest voice like having honey a sauce to sugar. Make it organic. Just be careful you don’t get diabetes. Speak highly of love Will, but it is better to be practical about a romantic relationship. Instead of booking an expensive 5-star accommodation, a quaint beach house that provides both quiet and intimacy is much better.
At Port Stephens, people open their homes for guests. They receive families and couples to enjoy the beauty of this New South Wales paradise. There are many beach houses and guest houses offering comfortable and sometimes luxurious accommodations making your Sydney tours to Port Stephens more fun, and well, intimate.
I have selected four places to stay and an iconic food getaway in Stockton Beach.
Dutchies Holiday is a quaint 5-bedroom & 3-bathroom house in Nelson Bay. It can accommodate five couples at a time. And it is not just an ordinary beach house. It is cosy and has an intimate feel. The perfect view of the beach and the calming sound of the sea sure intensifies love.
Only a few steps away you’re walking on the white sands of Dutchman’s Bay.
You could choose to cool yourself off in the pristine waters. If romance cools off too, then walk him or her out to a restaurant nearby for a dinner date with chocolates and wine. Then make it up later in the comfortable bed of Dutchies Holiday.
Beachfront Oasis is a 3-bedroom and 3-bathroom guesthouse on Corlette Point Beach in Nelson Bay. The house is perfectly located away from the often-busy main streets. It stands on a quiet side street close to the sandy beach which is great for a romantic getaway.
The modern design of this guesthouse showcases spacious rooms and a quaint living area yet protects your privacy.
The relaxing sound of the waves and the music of the ocean breeze make romance more intimate. You can stroll down the beach or cool off in the water after a heated exchange of affection. Perhaps, you can opt to dine out in a restaurant nearby or enjoy your barbecue and wine.
Beachfront House Sunset Beach
It is a 3-bedroom beach house located on Soldiers Point waterfront on 38 Sunset Boulevard. The catch of Beachfront House is the amazing ocean views. As soon as you step out of the door, take a few steps then you can feel the sand under your feet.
A short walk along the sandy beach will lead you to the picturesque marina and to restaurants and cafes.
Stay with your partner in this rustic and charming cottage to relax and to feel each other’s presence — intimate and private. You may both decide to have a date in a nearby restaurant. The cafes and restaurants are only a few minutes’ walk away.
But don’t walk away from your partner.
Another cool, stylish, and luxurious beach house is Water’s Edge. Located on Port Stephens Waterfront, this 5-bedroom guesthouse is designed for families and couples to have a relaxing place to stay on a holiday. You can check in to enjoy the beach and to unwind in the calm, peaceful, and quiet environment.
Nicely designed and decorated, Water’s Edge is a perfect Sydney tours romantic getaway. The setting is private and intimate. You can both enjoy each other’s company in a saccharine sunset. The lawns and gardens are impressive you can comfortably lie on the hammock with a book or simply love the views.
Crest Birubi Beach
The storied Crest Birubi Beach in Anna Bay has been a popular destination for fine dining. With picturesque views of the sea and the sand, this restaurant sits on the northern edge of the Stockton Bight. Hence, the impressive views of the sand dunes of Stockton Beach.
Whether you dine indoors or outdoors, your date is like heaven on earth, blissful even before the luscious meal. The food on the menu is perfect for a relaxing lunch or dinner. But you can have breakfast as well before hitting the beach.
So there, Port Stephens is the best Sydney tours destination to stay to nurture love. But be careful because as Will said, “Love is a smoke and is made with a fume of sighs.”
