About this listing
Not more than 200 meters from the beaches lies this tranquil cottage (Elaine) in a quiet cul-de-sac. Recently modernised and furnished, the initial impression of the outside appearance of this cottage fails to do justice to what guests discover inside. Elaine comfortably accommodates 6 adults and boasts a top quality, very well equipped, kitchen. Hear the whispers of the ocean from this bright, airy, sun-filled cottage and enjoy a memorable holiday in this highly sought-after location.
All linen and towels (excluding beach towels) are provided for up to six adults.
There is no Internet access at this property.
Guests access entire house.
In order to make it easier for parents with babies and infants we have provided free of charge one portable cot with a pillow, blankets and linen, a high chair, a rocker and a baby bath.
Interaction with guests
As we live in Sydney we will not be around to interact with guests however we provide our contact details if any issues should arise. We have an amazing handyman/cleaner team that are always on hand to assist us.
Everyone who comes to Hyams Beach falls in love with this picturesque location. Most people who have stayed at this house at Hyams Beach told us that they found it difficult to pack up and leave to go back home. Without exaggerating, couple with children who stayed at this house told us that their children had tears in their eyes when it was time to depart!Whatever you enjoy, be it spear or rock fishing, "crabbing" (as our children used to call searching under rock for little "wonders"), watching dolphins from the shore or a boat, swimming, just lying in the sun, bush walking, watching kangaroos from your bedroom window, or whatever, you will find it in this little paradise.
Hyams Beach is a remote village in a national park. There is limited public transport and it is advised that you have your own transport. It is only a short stroll to the beach from Elaine's and there is also a great cafe which is also a short walk from the house.

Both Julie and I have travelled a great deal. We enjoy experiencing different cultures and meeting new people. We are quite easy going, love children, reading, music, gardening and of course travelling. We try to achieve a balance between being friendly and engaging with guests while at the same time being aware that our guests have come to share our house in order to visit place of interest and for a holiday. We have agreed that we would rather err on allowing absolute privacy for our guests, while at the same time leaving our door open for them to interact with us if they wish. Achieving this difficult balance is, we think, the hardest aspect of hosting guests.
As we also have a holiday house at Hyams Beach (the idyllic little paradise in the Jervis Bay region) we sometimes feel ill at ease that, because of the distance between Leura and Hyams Beach, we generally cannot meet, greet and welcome our guests at Hyams personally.
We do not really have a life motto. But we are truly concerned that guests who stay with us, either at Leura or at Hyams Beach, are as comfortable as we can possibly make them and that they enjoy their little holiday. We think that we would be very unhappy if we did not achieve this objective; even if we miss this target in little ways.
