Located in the Newcastle beachside suburb of Merewether and only 150 metres from Merewether beach and ocean baths and beachside cafes, our beautiful period home has been totally renovated to modern standards and luxuriously furnished to create spacious and superbly comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation. With its high ceilings, wide hallways, tallow wood floors combined with be finest wool carpets, deep verandahs, big windows with plantation shutters and generous space, Merewether Beach House is both private and quiet. The light filled self-contained cottage is available overnight but can be a delightful solution to visitors looking for a longer stay. We are happy to negotiate the rate if that is the case. This immaculate purpose built cottage is separate to the main house. The elegant front rooms in the main house consist of two charming bedrooms featuring french doors opening onto a slate verandah and walled garden, two unique bathrooms and a large guest lounge and library with tea /coffee making facilities. This can serve as a two bedroom, two bathroom B & B suite or the rooms can be split to provide two separate and private B & B accommodations. Bedroom 1 becomes a private B & B suite with large lounge/ library, generous hallways and huge bathroom with separate bath and shower plus two vanities – great for multi day stays. This set up also has the option of up to two singles being accommodated in the library area. Bedroom two when separated becomes a luxurious bedroom with ensuite. Private entry is through the french doors from the garden. Ideal for a single night or when a lounge room is not required.
