Overlooking one of Port Stephens' safest ocean beaches, this luxurious 3 bedroom apartment is the perfect place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Surrounded by national park, white sand beaches and stunning natural attractions, this is a vacationer's dream. It is just 20 metres to the sand and rock pools from your front door. Families with young kids love it here because of the safe waters and easy amble back to get sandwiches or another bottle of water.

The apartment is tailor-made for holidaying families, couples or a bunch of friends away together. There are three queen bedrooms, an ensuite and a main bathroom, Plasma TV, DVD/VCR and CD player, climate control air-conditioning and security parking for two cars in the garage. All linen is supplied, wi-fi is included and tea and coffee on arrival. From the lounge and deck, you look straight down to the beach below, which is an ideal vantage point for firing up the barbecue and uncorking a bottle of sparkles.

Grab the morning newspaper and a pot of tea or the coffee plunger before settling down on the balcony to the sound of breaking waves. You can serve leisurely dinners in the full kitchen or use the balcony barbecue to grill the freshest catch of the day. Watch the whales in season from the balcony and from the many great viewing points around Boat Harbour. Dolphin spotting is excellent in Port Stephens' beautiful bays.

The gently and protected beach at Boat harbour is great for kids. Be sure to pack your snorkel as the rocky coves and pools provide excellent diving opportunities. And of course the name says it all - Boat Harbour is the place to set sail, drop a line and reel in a nice, long relaxing break. If you want surf action, One Mile Beach is just next door. A must see is the stunning Birubi Beach especially at sunset and for the more adventurous try sand sliding, camel riding and 4 wheel driving on the Stockton sand dunes. Nelson Bay is just a 10 minute drive away for shopping, restaurants, cafes, and the Marina..

We provide you details about access as soon as your booking is confirmed. Our Concierge, Susanna, looks after the apartment and she will meet you on arrival and show you around. You will have access to the whole apartment, garage and visitor's parking. One cupboard is locked for storage supplies. You will have access to all other storage space in the apartment.


Boat Harbour is just a magic part of the world. Quiet hidden jewel. Friendly. Serene. The perfect place to unwind and forget about the world. Known by the locals as a great fishing spot, picnic area and whale watching in season. Walk to Kingsley beach and One Mile Beach through the national park. Just a few kilometres to Anna Bay shops and Birubi Beach and Stockton Sand dunes. Salamander Bay shopping centre is just a 7 minute drive away. Nelson Bay is the main shopping hub and Marina of Port Stephens, just a 10 minute drive. Tennis courts can be hired on Blanch Street, just up the road from the apartment. Take a picnic or have a BBQ in the park directly below the apartment.

Getting around:

Boat Harbour is just 2.5 hours car drive from Sydney CBD and 20 minutes drive from Newcastle (Williamstown) airport. A daily bus service does depart to and from Sydney, however Port Stephens is best accessed by car. Car hire is available from the airport. Local bus services are available throughout the day to all locations in Port Stephens and taxis are also available. However, car is by far the best way to see all the wonderful sights and activities that Port Stephens has to offer.

Other things to note:

We have a lock box system so that you can arrive any time convenient to you after 2.00 pm. Wi fi is provided up to 20GB of date. Mobile reception in Boat Harbour is limited and depends on coverage by your service provider. There may be faint coverage on the balcony however good coverage is reliable along Gan Gan road. There is a landline for local calls or if you need to make an urgent call to a mobile or national number.

"Exceptional" Lovely and private, quiet, and comfortable. Nice view over the beach too.



"Really fabulous holiday home" A wonderful place to stay. Enormous, homely, well equipped apartment with a beautiful view of Boat Harbour beach. Highly recommended.



A lovely quiet unit complex with stunning outlook. Unit was beautifully presented & location could not be better. Beds were comfortable & kitchen well appointed. Would love to come back in the warmer months so we could enjoy more swimming in the bay. Would absolutely recommend.



Amazing view very clean close to the beach and the marina



We've stayed in Boat Harbour at a number of places over the last 6 years. This was our second year in a row at The Outlook 2 and we will definitely be going back. Perfect location with the park and easy access to the beach which is generally kid friendly. The apartment has everything you need and it's very relaxing just chilling on the balcony enjoying the view. If you need bigger waves there are some great surf beaches within 5 minutes drive. Whilst Boat Harbour is very chilled and laid back the rest of Port Stephens is very accessible with a short drive if you need. Sussanna, who has greeted us both years for the keys and apartment handover, and Glenyss are very easy to deal with.
