About kym

My husband and I renovated this 1940s Queenslander while living here and raising our family for 15 years. We loved living in the area so much we only moved 4 blocks away. All of the neighbours are fantastic!

kym purchased this house in 2000

Why kym chose Dicky Beach

This is a Queenslander with high ceilings, wide verandahs, french doors and brushbox floors. The Chef's kitchen is amazing as is the heritage Claw's foot bath tub.

Downstairs is a granny flat which sleeps 4 people on the ground floor.

What makes this house unique

This is the only house in the Dicky Beach CBD and straight across the road from the pristine patrolled surf beach and the Dicky Beach Surf Life Saving Club with its bar, bistro, TAB and poker machines.

Excellent holiday home for a quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our Grandfathers 80th birthday and the location and house couldn't be better! Plenty of room for the whole family, and the fact that it is dog friendly was fantastic. Beach is right across the road, with plenty of shops and restaurants just in front of the house. Would highly recommend staying here, Kym was fantastic!

Wow factor

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Even the rainy weather could not dampen our experience in this amazing house. House is in the best location. Park your car and forget it. House was spacious enough to accommodate the 10 of us.
