The whale watching season is upon us. Don't miss this spectacular annual migration of the Humpback Whale in the pristine waters of Jervis Bay Marine Park which, combined with the dramatic backdrop of the cliffs of Point Perpendicular and the Bay's white sandy beaches, make Jervis Bay not only a natural playground for whales but the very best place from which to see them. "Minke" has a special arrangement with Dolphin Watch - every guest receives a 20% discount voucher for their stay. The Northern Migration runs in June and July, the Southern Migration in late August to late November.

Hyams Beach is the jewel of the Shoalhaven and acknowledged as one of the world's most beautiful holiday locations. The magnificent sweep of beach is celebrated in the Guinness Book of Records for possessing the whitest sand in the world.

Our bedroom and sitting room windows face the Bay and views are also obtained from the front verandah and side sundeck. There are glass doors between our eat-in kitchen and huge deck (teak furniture and plantation umbrella). The many colourful birds are prolific in the area, as are the dolphins in the Bay. We've chess, boules (for the lawn), jig saws, a small but perfectly formed library, TV and DVD, sound system and more...

A hundred metres from Minke is the village's popular and renowned cafe with excellent breakfasts, midday dining and afternoon teas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a little place, Minke had everything I needed. Solitude and company, the beaches, the sand, peace and quiet. For those who love old fashioned quaint, Minke ticks the boxes. Loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stay. The property is lovely. We made great use of the wood fire bbq. We even caught some fish off the beach which was a bonus. Highly recommend the location and the accommodation to any interested couple.
