Lovely stay in July - 5 Star Review by Eva on Trip Advisor
Thank you Candice for a wonderful stay in July. We felt so well taken care of in this lovely, fresh, clean and relaxing space. There is so much to do in the area from the beach hikes to great restaurants and a visit to the Koala Hospital. The short walk to the beach and all your recommendations were helpful. Also helpful to have access to a kitchen space where we enjoyed the great breakfast but most of all loved the fresh baking was a great treat. I can highly recommend this bnb.
Quick Winter escape 5 Star Review on Trip Advisor by Andrew
Best B&B we've stayed at, very warm welcoming, friendly hosts, thankyou Candice! Great location, just like home away from home, felt like we were staying with long time friends. Easy walk to the beautiful Lighthouse Beach or the local shops, could hear the waves as we woke. We'll definitely be back, thanks for the cookies and the lone of the "getters".
Fantastic B&B !!! 5 Star Review by Jimmy on Trip Advisor
Cannot recommend enough! I'll be back for sure. Location is terrific so please don't baulk at the idea that its towards the 'edge of town' ... 10min drive into town along the scenic coastal drive, 2min walk to Lighthouse Beach so nice and quiet while handily located for beach vibes or the short run to town. The space? Very comfortable beds in spacious rooms with a couch or daybed, small outdoor space and great bathrooms. The B&Bs living/dining/kitchenette space also is roomy with Netflix, DVDs, books overlooking the garden, outdoor paved area. The thing is, its all going to evolve with Candace & Mike taking over the B&B, something that is clearly close to Candace's heart. Had the pleasure of hearing Candace's plans for adding their tasteful stamp to the layout and design and really excited to see the changes on my return visits to Port Mac. Its shaping up to be a very warm, very beachy and very chic space to stay with some great food options under consideration to make stays here just that bit more special. The true joy of B&Bs is feeling like you're someone's guest rather than being a visitor, as is the case with hotels or motels. Candace's spirit, enthusiasm and generosity absolutely radiate from her and its so cool to see someone realising a dream and letting others enjoy the great vibes that results when dreams become reality. Lovely space, stunning place, wonderful people ... this is what you want in a B&B!!
Home away from Home Rob E left this 5 Stars Review on Trip Advisor July 2020
Returning to this B&B is like coming home. Always a warm welcome from Candace, then to your room which has all the little home & warm touches you want when travelling..... spacious en-suite with fluffy towels, quality fittings and plenty of toiletries, a large room with comfy queen bed with great pillows, and a little courtyard to enjoy a drink in after a long drive. There is a fully equipped and very well stocked breakfast area and sitting room to utilise & enjoy, before heading down the street for a relaxing stroll along Lighthouse Beach. A quiet tip... Candace’s local dining recommendations are excellent too. Highly recommend you stay at Anchors B&B .... for a few nights!!
Excellent Beachside Hideout 5 Star Trip Advisor Review July 2020 by Riaan
We were pleasantly surprised and very impressed by the facility and the service at Candice and Mike’s B&B. Absolutely fabulous. Spacious rooms, modern and clean with all amenities. Off-street car parking was great. The guest lounge and kitchen (fully stocked for breakfast) was a welcome and unexpected surprise. We strolled down to Lighthouse Beach and also had the great privilege of observing the annual whale migration with whales very close to the shore. This little gem of a B&B has lots to offer for couples, travellers and business people, all the same. Will recommend this fabulous facility to anyone.
WOW & WOW 5 Star Review on Trip Advisor by Ronel July 2020
If you are looking for excellent service, friendly hosts, great quality and 2 minute walk to the beach, then this is it! We enjoyed our stay so much! We were spoiled with a lovely cheese platter and wine as well as freshly baked scones for breakfast. Location is perfect. Great for a walk on the beach, grab a coffee while watching the whales swim by.. great experience. Thanks so much!
We have stayed at Anchors twice in the past month & will do so many times in the future. Anchors B&B is a beautiful place for a night or two & run by a delightful couple, Candace & Mike, who went out of their way to make us feel at home & provide a fabulous breakfast. The two rooms are beautifully decorated & super comfortable with lovely products in the bathroom. A few restaurants & the beach are within walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of Port Macquarie that we hadn't experienced before, having stayed in the touristy areas. Make sure you allow up to an hour to visit to the Koala Hospital & see the adorable koalas as well as appreciating their valuable work to save our precious wildlife. Awesome.
Date of stay: February 2020
Room Tip: Either room is perfect
