Overview

About the property

JUST LIKE GRANDMA'S PLACE! - but with free WIFI

Situated on the outskirts of Albany, on the banks of Oyster Harbour where the Jarrah meets the Sheoak, Hebe Cottage is the ideal location to relax and unwind or visit Albany's many natural and historical attractions. Surrounded by a cottage garden overflowing with roses, liliums, clivias & hydrangeas, in absolute seclusion, it is just a short stroll to the boat launching ramp and children's playground.

This 3 bedroom, self contained accommodation set on a one acre property, boasts a timber kitchen with full sized oven, fridge, cooktop and microwave. The cottage has complimentary WiFi, reverse cycle aircon, a cosy wood fire for cold, winter nights & delightful cast iron beds & furniture from a bygone era.

Beds include QB, DB and two SB. Linen is provided.

Enjoy a starter breakfast of homemade bread & fresh, free range, Sussex eggs if available. BBQ on the covered entertainment deck overlooking the rose garden or simply watch the Firetail Finches, Red Capped Parrots & Rosellas from your front verandah. You might even see a Western Spinebill if you are lucky!

We know you will be enchanted by our Two Rivers Region & will want to return again & again!

Explore The Amazing Two Rivers Region - ALBANY'S WATER PLAYGROUND!

The beautiful Two Rivers Region is the ideal location for exploring the King & Kalgan Rivers, nearby national parks, bushwalks, wildflowers & the magnificent bays & beaches such as Nanarup Beach & Lagoon, Ledge Beach, Boiler Beach, Two Peoples Bay & the "Jewel in the Crown of Albany's Coastline", Little Beach & Waterfall Beach.

IF YOU LOVE NATURE BASED HOLIDAYS, this is the place for you!

Kayaking, sailing, paddle-boarding, skiing, swimming, fishing, crabbing, prawning, surfing, snorkelling, bird watching & bushwalking.

Nature has provided it all in this magical, unspoilt & enchanting place!

Take a stroll along nearby Oyster Harbour, savour the freshness of the sea air on your face, see the amazing kaleidoscope of colour over the sheltered waters at dawn & dusk or watch the pelicans feeding in the shallows waiting for fish as the boats come in.

Go snorkelling around the boiler at nearby Boiler Beach or the protected waters of 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.

See the spectacular Queen of Sheba orchid during August in nearby Gull Rock National Park. Pitcher plants, banksia coccinia, boronia, crowea, pansy orchids, snail orchids, fairy orchids, rattlebeaks & star of Bethlehem are all close-by in nature's wonderland during Springtime.

Finally, no trip to Albany would be complete without visiting the world-class NATIONAL ANZAC CENTRE at Heritage Park. Set high on Mt Adelaide with the most magnificent vista of King George Sound, the Anzac Centre overlooks the departure point for the First & Second Convoys of WW1. In late 1914 over 41,000 Australians & New Zealanders (around 30,000 of them Australian) left Albany bound for Gallipoli & the Western Front.

Visitors follow the real life experiences of 1 of 32 characters through the horrors of the Great War by the use of interactive displays & technology. It is a poignant memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice or who were forever changed because of what they had endured.

A must for all to see!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Hebe Cottage (more a small family home actually) was a great base to explore Albany and all it has to offer. We spent 8 nights here and were always glad to return to it after a big day of touring and walking. Town and all the restaurants are only a 10 min drive away - bottle shop, fuel and supermarket is only 2 mins away. We were tired and late to arrive on the first night but our host suggested an Indian meal home delivered - arrived in an hour and was delicious! Rosalie was very generous with advice and suggestions and there was plenty of extras thrown in too - Fresh bread, eggs and milk all ready to go. Fireplace on a cold night or sunny deck in the afternoon overlooking the back valley. We highly recommend Llittle Beach in 2 people's nature reserve on a sunny morning - Devine!

Wonderful property!

We really enjoyed our second holiday staying in Hebe cottage. The house has everything you could possibly need & is a fantastic base to explore Albany & the south west of WA. Owners & hosts, Rosalie & Wayne, gave us great tips on what to see and do in the area. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ra for your lovely comments. Children love Hebe Cottage. They get the chance to stay in a place just like Grandma's but which has FREE WIFI. They can curl up beside the wood fire in their bean bags watching DVD's, reading the many children's books that are especially for them or play draughts & chess with Mum & Dad to while away the cold, winter nights! Families are always welcome to stay at Hebe & we hope to see you all again soon.

Hebe is Holiday Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Hebe Cottage was a lovely surprise. Rosalie has thought of everything with the cottage being extremely well equiped. It is clean, tidy, comfortable and an extremely relaxing place to holiday. We loved sitting on the outside deck enjoying the breeze, bird life, garden and views. Our daughter also loved the fact it had children's DVDs, games and books. Thanks for a fabulous stay in Albanny Rosalie.
