Overview

About the property

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.

Simply divine!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable in the outside, comfortable and fully equipped on the inside.

Such close proximity to the beach and the homemade muffins each day at Hyams Beach Cafe were a plus!

Really enjoyed the selection of games and books/magazines - play Finska in the backyard with beers. Highly addictive!

Really really enjoyed our stay at Minke!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

I don't really want to say anything nice as it will be even harder for me to book this gorgeous cottage again. The cottage is beautiful. The interiors are lovely, the location fantastic with a very short walk to the beach and cafe. Although it rained for most of the time I stayed, I took the opportunity to read, relax and enjoy this gorgeous cottage and stunning location. I will certainly be back to stay here.

Beautiful stylish cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly like the photos, stylish, clean and just across the road from the Hyams Beach. A lovely walk down the street to beautiful Chinaman's Beach.

Emails réponses were very quick and the cottage was equiped with all things you need for a lovely stay.

Minke Magic

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Minke Whalers Cottage. It was just the weekend getaway we needed. Situated in the perfect location-close to the beach & cafe.

It rained for most of our stay, but we were still able to snuggle down with the tele, the football on the radio & I found a fabulous book to read from the awesome little in-cottage library- I even purchased it afterwards.

The cottage had everything we needed, was tidy and had such beautiful character.

I feel like I know the owners (after just a few emails). They were extremely welcoming and prompt in response to any questions I had.

Just brilliant...we'll definitely return to our Minke retreat.

Just as good as our last visit

  • 5 of 5

A return visit to this devine cottage, unfortunately the weather wasn't great. Minke was a great place to curl up with a book, watch a DVD, play board games, ducking out for a beach walk & swim. A short drive to the National Park.
