“Great spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Martys at Little Beach is a great place to stay, modern and well kept. It's in a very good location close to the beaches and club.
Great pool and bbq area, ideal for kids. There is a good restaurant at Little Beach.

Thank you !
We must agree that we are ideally located... between two of the Bay's most beautiful beaches, proximity to Little Beach Boathouse ( newest restaurant in the area) and easy walking to the Nelson bay marina ( eating, shopping, sightseeing) and in the opposite direction into Shoal Bay.
We are very lucky !

Marty's has everything you could need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay in Nelson Bay. Fantastic for families (our 2 year old loved the little playhouse an the 7 year old loved the pool). Apartments are spacious, immaculately clean and have everything you need. Staff are friendly and helpful, and lovely Little Beach just 2 minutes walk. Would definitely stay here again without question!

Modern, clean, no clutter, everything on hand for a pleasant stay! Relaxing, walking distance to beach, and Boatshed restaurant, a good breakfast place just around the corner. Close to Shoal Bay where there is also good shopping and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool are a little noisy, but worth it for the outlook.

Just loved Marty's and the short walk to Little Beach. We didn't get in the car the whole time we were there which just adds to the relaxation. So clean, spacious and easy. Loved the Boatshed restaurant where we went both nights. We walked into Nelson Bay for breakie along the beautiful coast road. Such a lovely long weekend. We had such a great time we booked to go back in December. Can't wait. And we are bringing my sisters family.

Many thanks for your review !
We must agree ... it is a little piece of paradise and the Little Beach Boathouse is in a great location for our guests ( the menu / service is excellent also !!)
It certainly makes for a relaxing holiday when you can walk to everything and give the car a holiday also.

My wife and I stayed at Martys for a week in March 2014, great little resort/motel, great value for money, friendly staff and good location. Rooms fairly large and clean. Bonus of free Wi-Fi that is standard in the UK and Europe but still some places over here insist on charging for. Overall a great time and would stay here again.

nice and quiet, tidy and neat. What else is there to complain. Except the laundry room timing -- 8.30am to 5pm is restricted. Otherwise great stay. The pool is lovely. My wife and kids love it very much.

Thank you for your review and we are very pleased that we were able to make your stay enjoyable.
Sorry about the laundry hours ... as we are self-contained accommodation and not onsite 24hours of the day it is a fire safety requirement. Hope this did not inconvenience you too much.

We stayed at Marty's on our way to and from Sydney and to be honest I chose it because it was the cheapest in the area we wanted.I therefore wasn't expecting too much but was delighted at everything about this beautifully maintained motel.The staff were very friendly and helpful and it's obvious that customer service is very important to them.Both rooms we had were spotless,tastefully decorated and comfortable- complaints at all.

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
