Shoal Bay Bed and Breakfast is a 2 storey bed and breakfast with an in-ground pool. We have 3 travertine marble bathrooms available. Tomaree and Zenith rooms have 2 person spa baths and separate showers. Zenith More has its own private lounge room with a sofa lounge that can accommodate 2 extra guests at $50 each on top of the room tariff. Yacaaba has a shower over a 2 person bath and a balcony. A continental breakfast is included in the tariff and includes banana and strawberry or apple pancakes, home made bread, juice, cereals, tea and coffee. We are a 5 minute walk to beautiful Shoal Bay Beach and a 5 minute drive to Nelson Bay shops and marina. We have bicycles for hire and you can ride on the cycle path across the road on a fairly level path to beautiful Final Bay. Port Stephens is a beautiful area surrounded by bays and beaches so come and join us sometime. Please note we do not have facilities for children or pets and we have a no smoking policy. Less
