About the property

A home away from home amongst the birds and trees.

Rosedale Hideaway is a secluded, well maintained holiday cottage. Leave home and work behind, as we have provided everything you need to simply relax and enjoy the simplicity and peace of a little cottage surrounded by nature.

Looking from the deck, a profusion of tall eucalypts and casuarinas provide a backdrop to a garden which is home to many native birds who love to make your acquaintance. At the back of the property, through the little gate at the side of the fenced garden, you can access the saltwater creek that flows down to the beach, an alternate route to the short stroll down the road. The sound of the nearby surf will lull you to sleep at the end of the day.

Perfect for a romantic holiday for a couple, or for a family holiday of 2 adults and up to 2 children.

About Julie McVeigh

Julie and John, son Simon and daughter-in-law Louisa are the owners of Rosedale Hideaway, and we have loved every minute of having a little patch of paradise to return to for a chance to rest and relax whenever we get the chance. We lived in Rosedale permanently until a few years ago, and couldn't resist keeping this little cottage so that we can always come back.

Julie McVeigh purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie McVeigh chose Rosedale

This area means a lot to us, because we just love everything about Rosedale. Its a place to get away from the normal activities of busy lives, and just be in nature, nurtured by the coastal landscape and the bush surrounds, family time, and a slower pace. We deliberately chose not to connect to technology when we bought the property, primarily because the opportunity to disconnect from the hectic nature of work life and to really relax is a golden opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a real holiday: rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

What makes this house unique

Rosedale beach is a very special place, we love to walk,swim, dive, surf, fish and just simply rest with a good book under the umbrella. The walks around to Nun's Beach and Tranquil way and along the headland to Guerrilla Bay, looking out to Jimmy's Island is just spectacular. One of the great things is that somewhere so gorgeous is quite the secret getaway, and so Rosedale is still a quiet and peaceful little place.

The cottage itself is quite private, and from the deck the bush and the bird life is a spectacle in itself. There are so many birds, and many varieties, and they are unafraid to come up to the verandah railing and say hello.

The cottage is small, but everything is provided that we can think of to make it homely and comfortable:

Good quality bedding, well equipped kitchen, easy care and well maintained.

A beautiful house with a lovely yard.

  • 5 of 5

It was so close to the beach and the sun coming up over the beach in the winter was perfect.

A lovely little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

a beautiful cottage, nestled close to the beach. Has every amenity you could need and more. We were blessed the lovely neighbours came over one morning to let us know of a a whale and calf swimming at the beach, to which we promptly ran down. We were so lucky to have witnessed such a special event!

Great for dogs at the coast

  • 5 of 5

Great for dogs, with a fantastic dog off lead beach (depending on season) just down the end of the road and full time dog off lead beaches nearby. Comfortable, clean, well equipped and homey with a fairly large fenced back yard for Fido. Have been before and will keep going in future. Thanks for sharing you house.

Great quiet location

  • 4 of 5

My partner, our 2 dogs and I really enjoyed this house. It was great for the dogs and just so quiet. Very little phone reception which was a bonus. Beach so close by. Definitely stay there again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rosedale Hideaway is a perfect little cottage for a relaxing break. Beautiful and well equipped holiday house with gorgeous surroundings and lovely garden. Very private property, short walk to the beach and great place to explore with the dog. Had a wonderful break with my two girls and our dog, highly recommended for a peaceful getaway.
