Description

Minke Whalers cottage was built in 1926 by Mr Francis Langridge who walked from Melbourne with his family looking for work.It was built from local hardwood cut on site and forms a pair of the original,Historic Whalers cottages on Cyrus Street.
The cottage has been recently fully restored & offers all the modern comfort & styling you would expect.
The whale watching season is also a great time to visit. Don't miss this spectacular annual migration of the Humpback Whale in the pristine waters of Jervis Bay Marine Park. "Minke" has a special arrangement with Dolphin Watch - discount vouchers are available at the cottage. The Northern Migration runs in June and July, the Southern Migration from late August to end 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.

The cottage is not suitable for children or pets.

The bedroom and lounge windows face the Bay and views are also visible from the front verandah and expansive side deck. There are large glass doors between our eat-in kitchen and deck. The many colourful birds are prolific in the area, as are the dolphins in the Bay & regular sighting of Kangaroos in the surrounding Booderoo national park ! We have a selection of games & books available with a small but perfectly formed library, TV and DVD player available.

Location

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique cottage Minke is the ideal stay for a couple. It is beautifully and thoughtfully furnished. Industrial vintage touches add charm. Minke's location to the beach, general store and to bush and beach walks is perfect. This was our fourth visit to Minke and we plan on returning again very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture Perfect! We loved our stay at Minke. Beautifully furnished, clean, fresh, bright and airy. Decor pays homage to the history of the cottage, but we also loved the modern, contemporary feel. Lots of charming decorator touches throughout the cottage add to the enjoyment of the cottage - attention to detail is evident! The location is perfect! A short walk to the crystal clear waters and white sands of Hyams Beach. Although the cottage is fully equipped to self cater, we also enjoyed the proximity to the lovely local cafe/restaurant where we enjoyed some delicious meals. Decks front and side of the cottage meant that we could take advantage of the views of sea/bush while finding the perfect sunny spot! Overall, a perfect spot for a relaxing weekend by the sea. We would highly recommend Minke and would definitely return. It was even better than we had anticipated!
