“Fantastic location, could have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012 via mobile

This was our first stop on our road trip from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. Wow! We were so pleased we'd booked Martys, the accommodation was spotless, very modern -(it had recently been refurbished )and it was nestled between two amazing beaches. The lady on reception took time to explain everything and was very friendly and helpful. There are DVDs and games in reception available to borrow too. The pool was well maintained, as was the BBQ area that was thoroughly cleaned daily by the hotel, despite guests cleaning it after use, Martys cleaned it again so it remains spotless. There was also a little undercover play area for very young children.
Wish we'd booked longer. Can thoroughly recommend Martys. Thanks for a memorable first few nights stay in Australia!

Visited for a week before Christmas, the beaches were very close - 2 minutes walk to a family friendly beach. We stayed in number 3 which was well appointed, had a grassed area where the kids could play, overlooked the pool/BBQ/kids play area, and was close to the communal laundry. All perfect for a family with 3 kids under 6. We are leaving tomorrow and are already planning our next trip.

We chose Marty's based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Was not disappointed. We stayed in a king atudio, very clean, and modern rooms. Was a five minute walk to the beach, and a pleasant stroll to the town centre. Lady at reception was lovely. We will definitely come back again.

My husband and I have short getaways a couple of times a year, usually around Shoal Bay. Within easy distance from our home, it provides a relaxing break.
This year we made a break away from our usual accom. feeling that the standard had significantly dropped on our last visit….. THEN we discovered Martys@littlebeach :)
Affordable (1/2 of what we used to pay),immaculate, friendly, convenient to beaches, walks, shops. The staff cannot do enough for you. It feels like home. Going back tomorrow after a wonderful 5 niight stay…..wish we could stay. The little cafe around the corner makes amazing seafood and salads. A visit to the Fish co-op each day, meant we cooked our own seafood feasts every night.
The rooms have been well thought out with so many great added touches for comfort and convenience. For a smaller, more intimate experience Marty's@Little beach is a "class act".

Room Tip: Poolside rooms would be great for families; couples: go to 8 or 9, or directly under

Stayed here in October for a few days and just loved the place. Super clean, great space and a pool that the whole family enjoyed. We are a couple with a 3 and 5 year old. Great service and spotlessly clean. We can't fault the place.

We recently travelled over from England with our 7 month old baby and had a stay at Marty's. It was perfect for our needs. The apartment was clean and fresh and fully equipped with all the facilities we required for ourselves and our little one. It felt like home from home which was perfect after such a long journey.
The heated swimming pool was perfect for our baby to splash around in and is gated for maximum security and peace of mind. The location is perfect being close to amenities and only a couple minutes walk from a gorgeous beach. Staff and management were fantastic and always friendly and happy to help.
Martys provided our family with a hassle free, fantastic holiday enjoyed by all! A definite recommendation!

My daughter and I (plus dog!) had 4 nights at Marty's and we could have stayed another week.
Delightful staff, extremely helpful and friendly. Brand new rooms that look amazing.
Doggy beach a few minutes away - Bagnall beach. Heated pool to 26 degrees. DVD and toy library. Wifi. Foxtel. Plus a pet friendly apt with its own enclosed yard. We cant wait to return!
Thank you for a wonderful stay :-> (Apt 2)

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Location! Location! Spectacular Location!Quietly nestled between two of Port Stephen’s most idyllic beaches but still close enough to the heart of all the Bay’s great restaurants and attractions, Marty’s is in the perfect location to do everything or....absolutely nothing at all!Totally refurbished inside and out in August 2012 - you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the style, elegance and quality - not to mention the affordability!So when you arrive, leave the car (and your stress) in the car park - you won’t be needing them - and take a two minute walk west to stunning Little Beach. Soft white sand, perfect swimming for the kids, boat ramp and one of the best scuba diving spots on the east coast.A tad breezy today? No problem. Simply walk two minutes east and find a protected spot on the uncrowded Shoal Bay Beach - postcard perfect!Take a big deep breath in.... now exhale... and relax... you’re on holidays! ... more   less
