Guest Reviews:

"Deck the halls - what a fabulous location to spend time with family! With more than enough beds to sleep 2 young families, we were able to celebrate a memorable Christmas, and cook a substantial Christmas feast for everyone with an impressively stocked kitchen. There are more appliances, bowls, glasses, baking dished and cutlery to use whilst another whole set in in the dishwasher!

The huge deck is a beautiful place to relax and drink a few glasses of wine whilst catching up with friends and family in a serene and private space.

The only background noise is the ever-chirruping cicadas, and the beach is an easy stroll down the street. Great location, fantastic generously furnished house with ALL the comforts of home - in fact, their kitchen was better stocked than mine!!

We hope to return some day :)"

"It was such a lovely place, and we really enjoyed the stay at this house.

As a bunch of Europeans, we almost forgot what a house with double-glassed windows look like :) It felt like home! And the outdoor spa was just amazing. We were 8 adults had the best time at the Deck. I definitely will recommend this place to my friends."

About Betina Nissen

Hi, my name is Betina and I am the owner of The Deck at Elizabeth Beach. I am born in Denmark and came to Australia when I was 11 years old. I am a former Trauma Nursing Unit Manager but now run my own business - Vegmasters Pty Ltd.

Betina Nissen purchased this house in 2011

Why Betina Nissen chose Elizabeth Beach

Being Danish, we immediately fell in love with The Deck! It was built by and Austrian and Swiss couple and the many European features - double glazed windows, solid raw timber doors, many angles and practical design - were hard to walk away from. The minute we walked in we not only felt at home, but we felt we were on holidays and that was the difference. The Deck is not just a house!

What makes this house unique

Huge deck is great for entertaining many people, but I love the privacy of the outdoor heated spa area. We actually never shower inside but only use the heated outdoor shower surrounded by bush - fantastic!

With double glazed windows, the house never get's too cold or too hot. But I do love the ability to have a romantic night in with the fireplace burning.

Finally - the Bunk Room for the kids! They can have their own private area and what child doesn't like to sleep in the loft area - so cozy and different.

Lie in bed with the windows wide open and just listen to the sound of the jungle that is the bush behind The Deck - it's alive!

A rainforest haven

  • 5 of 5

The Deck was very comfortable and felt like a home away from home, with everything there that you need for a happy, relaxing stay. The outdoor shower after swimming at the beach was fantastic and the huge deck was a great place to have a meal or just sit with a coffee and enjoy the beautiful environment. Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely be back to this area.

Wonderful Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

The 9 of us (3 generations) had a wonderful stay at The Deck. The house was clean, the beds are comfortable, and there was plenty of space - even on the wet days. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - lots of crockery/cutlery and utensils - there were even good, sharp knives.

The location is really good, with the beach being an easy, level walk away.

Communication with Betina was easy (she is very patient), and the security deposit was refunded immediately. I would highly recommend The Deck.

Owner's Response: Than k you so much Ruth. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed The Deck and special time with 3 generations in the one house!! I've set up the kitchen specifically for large group catering just as I would want it in my own home. Nothing worse that no sharp knives!! We hope to see you back another time. Kind Regards, Betina

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Played in many places up and down the coast of NSW but a couple of things which made this one great was the location. We have done the same style of holiday around Jervis Bay and Port Stephens before but they get so busy. This was at Easter but Pacific Palms was great as you could go to the beach and not have big crowds.

Of all the places I have stayed I don't think any have been as well equipped in terms of the kitchen.

Good space, comfy lounge and beds!

I would definitely stay again.
