Rose is a classic, original beach cottage located in the peaceful north-west corner of Hyams. It sleeps four, has plenty of character and is an easy walk to beautiful Chinamans beach. Please keep in mind to BYO sheets and towels!
Location - 2 Rose is located on the corner of Aster and Rose Streets, the very Northwest corner of the village. Across the road is National Park land so all is quiet and peaceful and full of animal and bird life. Chinamans Beach is a very easy walk along Aster Street and the cafe is either a longer walk or a very easy drive .
Key features - 2 Rose is an original Hyams cottage with many original features including a separate outside toilet that adjoins the house, an original bathroom with shower only and a 1950's fridge that you will never see elsewhere. It is easy to get back to basics with NO television or dishwasher in this cottage. For these reasons, the cottage may be too rustic for some, but it is otherwise a quaint, cosy and good couple or small family option. If in doubt, please phone us to be clear about how rustic the cottage is.
Configuration - 2 Rose has a small living room, kitchen, queen bedroom, twin bedroom and combined laundry/shower bathroom inside. The toilet is connected to the bathroom area, but you have to go outside (under cover) to access it. There is also a porch by the front door with views down Aster Street to Chinamans beach.
Outdoors - 2 Rose has a tiled porch by the front door with views down Aster Street to Chinamans beach. It also has a lovely lawn, perfect for an evening picnic. National Park land is across the road, so there is a real sense of being amongst nature, but within easy access to the beaches and cafe.
Heating and Cooling - 2 Rose can be opened up to catch any available breeze and is supplied with heaters, doonas and blankets for winter.

Special information - As the toilet is outside and only accessible through a few doors and steps, the house would not be recommended for smaller children and elderly guests.
Internet / Wi-Fi access - NBN is progressively rolling out along the South Coast of NSW. If your house does have internet and if the owner makes it available to guests, you mayuse it with no guarantee of reliability or bandwidth by us or the owner. If you bring an internet dongle with you, the best network is generally Telstra. Otherwise, use your smart phone only during your stay or find a local cafe or library that offers free wifi.
