We came here for a weekend getaway, hoping to just leave the world behind us for a little bit. It was everything we were looking for and more. We are staying one of the Jacuzzi cabins - amazing. As soon as we walked in we were impressed. An open living area, queen bed down stairs - but we opted for...

Me and my family stayed in the family bungalow.

So sorry to hear that your visit wasn't memorable like our other guests. I do apologize for not being at my desk but at that time I was visiting the toilet. Our resort is located in the bush and it is a constant battle to keep the spiders (daddy long legs) out of the cabins. We do not kill our...

My partner, my dog and i stayed here for 3 nights in "kellys castle" one of the hot tub rooms. The location was great.. a short drive to nelson bay and an even shorter drive to the sand dunes. The rooms were large enough to be comfortable without being too large. There was a hot tub out the back and...

My family has visited this unique location for several years now. We stay in the Nelson Bay area given its proximity to Sydney. With young children the location is fantastic, very close to the beach. The cottages are homely and clean and all the necessary facilities are provided. Our kids grew up cycling around the grounds. Cherrie and Mark really...

Original Eco concept when built was interesting and could imagine group functions here. However, friendly new owners will have their hands full restoring the property back into a profitable business. Much needs an update, trim back, clean out and review of targeted marketing, particularly relating to the "eco" concept. We felt the size of each building accommodation and prices charged...

I am a bit puzzled by Very Rustic response. Our guests were really nice Canadians and told us they really enjoyed their stay. It is very hard to read such a response six months later after they stayed with us. I have actually lived in the cabin they stayed in and found it to be quiet cosy and relaxing. The...

I booked O'Carrolyns accommodation on line at lastminute.com under the pet friendly selection, after paying for the accommodation I called to double check their pet friendly status, yes I could bring my dog however there is a $25 charge extra. This extra charge should be clearly defined on the website when paying for the accommodation. I felt that I had...

We've just returned from a 3 night week end getaway @ O'Carrollyns and would highly recommend this retreat. I'm sure O'Carrollyn's is not for all - if you are looking for a fancy hotel with all the facilities and a homogenised look and feel then stay at the Mantra or something of that ilk. If you want to stay in...

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We were happy to see your family group made the most of the fire pit - we certainly have lots of firewood to spare at the moment! Look forward to seeing you again next year.

Thank you for your review Cyndy, we loved having you to stay. As our first 'pet friendly' guests, your two doggies were an absolute dream! The photo of your son and his two dogs walking across the bridge has become a standard marketing photo for us now - I think it captures O'Carrollyn's beautifully.

We have nine self contained, lofted bungalows – comfortable, affordable accommodation which is suited to singles, couples, families and groups alike. Perfect for a quiet weekend retreat, family reunions or wedding celebrations. We're pet friendly, so you need worry about leaving your family pet at home - bring them along to enjoy the holiday with you!ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIESOur bungalows have a front verandah, leading into spacious open-plan lounge, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen. The large master bedroom is adjacent to a spacious bathroom. The upper floor loft makes functional sleeping quarters for up to 6 children and/or adults. We have an undercover communal BBQ area with cooking facilities and an indoor function room. There is also a 300 sq/m awning located in the garden area. The natural bushland throughout O'Carrollyn's provides an ideal environment for Australian wildlife and we often have koala's, kangaroo's and kookaburra's visit, along with an abundance of colourful native birds.W ell-behaved dogs are welcome at O'Carrollyn's provided they are on leash in the communal areas. Our grounds and lower floor of the bungalows are wheelchair accessible.PORT STEPHENS Port Stephens is known as 'Blue Water Paradise'. We are on a peninsula approximately 2 hours north of Sydney on the East Coast of Australia.

“Choose a bungalow to suit your own needs, all bungalows are on a loop road and face the central pond and group kitchen/function area. It would be quite noisy if you were there at the same time as a wedding reception!”

“Travel Tip: If you are using a Navman try putting in the suburb as Boat Harbour. To get to O'Carrolyns, you enter Koala Place from Gan Gan road off the same roundabout as Blanch Street. So if you can't find Koala Place in your Navman put in Blanch street and it will get you there.”
