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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show off to overseas friends Took an American friend of mine to prove we do have the whitest sand in Australia AND it is possible to go to sleep with the sound of waves & not traffic in your ears. Minke also showed a glimpse of "Australia past" due to its historic significance in such a superb natural surroundings. Quite, pristine beaches & bushwalks everywhere

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minke - worth a return visit or two Minke is well appointed, ideal for two with off-road parking and at a stunning location. it offers virtually every feature that might reasonably be expected for a beach holiday or quiet escape. Apart from the local cafe, busy Huskisson is only ten minutes away and a new supermarket complex is even closer. A ceiling fan would be a welcome addition in the bedroom.
