Surrounded by a cottage garden overflowing with roses, liliums, clivias and hydrangeas, it is just a short stroll to the boat launching ramp and playground for children. It is the ideal base to relax and unwind or visit the many local natural and historical attractions. Set on an acre property, Hebe Cottage has a timber kitchen with full sized oven, fridge and freezer, cooktop and microwave. There is FREE WIFI, reverse cycle aircon, a cosy, wood fire for cold, winter nights, cast iron beds and furniture from a bygone era with quality, handcrafted cushions and quilts. Ask about our WINTER SPECIAL in June, July & August. Stay for 4 nights & PAY FOR 3! ( Holidays excluded) Extra person rate still applies. WINTER is a wonderful time of the year to hike on the many walks around Albany such as the beautiful Luke Penn Walk along the Kalgan River or the challenging, 12.5km Bald Head Walk Trail on the stunning Flinders Peninsula in the Torndirrup National Park. CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS at Hebe, just like we all remember with traditional Christmas decorations & homemade cookies. IT IS JUST LIKE STAYING AT GRANDMAS! Beds include QB, DB and 2 SB. Linen is provided. NO CHARGE for porta cot ( bring your own cot linen) and high chair. CHILDREN under 2 years - FREE BBQ on the covered entertainment deck overlooking the rose garden or simply watch the Firetail Finches, Red Capped Parrots and Rosellas from your front verandah. You might even see a Western Spinebill if you are lucky! Enjoy a starter breakfast of fresh, free range, Sussex eggs if available and home made bread. Get up early and watch the kaleidoscope of colour as the sun rises over the sheltered waters of nearby Oyster Harbour. Feel the freshness of the sea air on your face as you watch the pelicans feeding in the shallows, waiting for fish as the boats come in. Go snorkelling around the boiler at Boiler Beach or the protected, Nanarup Lagoon. Snorkel amongst the fish at Little Beach or look for the leafy sea dragons hiding in the seaweed at the picturesque Waterfall Beach. All this is close-by in the amazing Two Rivers Region. See the spectacular Queen of Sheba Orchids flowering in August in nearby Gull Rock National Park. Pitcher plants, banksia coccinia, boronia, crowea, pansy orchids, snail orchids, fairy orchids, rattlebeaks and Star of Bethlehem are all close-by in NATURES WONDERLAND during Springtime. We know you will be enchanted by our Two Rivers Region and will want to return again and again.More
