A home away from home amongst the birds and trees.
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.

Simple, cosy cottage in a tranquil setting
We had three lovely nights at this delightful little cottage with our two dogs. They loved playing in the back yard and we loved being able to have them inside with us in the evenings when they wanted to rest in their beds. The property is clean and well maintained. If you’re after a quiet spot in a beautiful bush land setting, close to the almost private beaches, with simple and comfortable accommodation, then this is perfect. We appreciated the nice homey little touches throughout the property as well. Check in / out was simple and the house is well stocked with all your basics to make clean up before you leave a breeze.
Lovely stay at Rosedale Cottage
We had a great stay at this cottage with 2 adults, 2 children and our dog for 6 nights. Was absolutely spotless on arrival and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Not a large place but that was a bonus for us because it meant that we were all together and not off in other rooms although the deck did have a table and chairs that my husband and I had dinner at a few nights on our own which was really nice. The outlook down to the creek is beautiful and the stunning Rosedale beaches are only a few minutes walk away. It rained a couple of days during our stay but the cottage was warm and comfortable. We really enjoyed playing soccer in the gorgeous backyard. Would love to return again for another stay and have already recommended to friends and family. We highly recommend this property for a family stay.
Thanks Anne, we are delighted that you enjoyed our cottage and surroundings, and appreciated gorgeous Rosedale Beach. We would love to welcome you back anytime, and thank you for recommending us to your family and friends. We really try to make our place as welcoming, comfortable and clean as we like to enjoy when we rent a holiday place. And, we LOVE having a holiday at Rosedale too... its our 'home away from home'.... that we love to share...Julie and Louisa
What a wonderful place! Very neat and tidy with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Our dog loved the back yard it was perfect. It was very nice to sit on the balcony in the morning and evening to listen and watch the birds and to also have a bbq on the balcony was great. The beach only a short walk away :-) We loved our stay and really hope to visit again. Thank you very much Julie and Louisa for accommodating us at your wonderful hideaway.
Fantastic little clean house in excellent location
We loved our stay at Rosedale Hideaway. A few minutes easy walk to a dog friendly beach. Either by rd. or short track. Rosedale beach is amazing! Had a fantastic swim in Winter. Can hear the waves from the house. A few minutes drive to an IGA for groceries. Close to wonderful walks and beaches. The house itself is very clean, well stocked, warm in Winter from the heater provided. An excellent private outdoor shower. Comfy beds with clean flannel sheets and freshly washed and clean duvet covers with the added bonus of clean blankets supplied. The back porch was perfect for having a cup of tea while looking out onto the lagoon in the back. Friendly neighbour. Beautiful birds and a curious possum visiting. Winter was the perfect quiet time to stay, relax and play. Thanks for sharing your house with us.
A lovely cottage, clean and comfortable and well located next to the creek and close to the beach. We will be back 🙂
We had a wonderful time despite the average weather. Lovely cosy cottage that had everything we needed! We hope to come back soon!!
So glad to hear that you enjoyed our cottage. You are welcome back anytime, thank you for leaving it so clean and beautifully tidy!
