About Yvonne Hulbert
Trevor and I own and operate Yarrandabbi Dreaming B&B Retreat, having won the TripAdvisors Certificates of Excellence and their GreenLeaders' Gold Awards every year since 2013. We love hosting people, however, enjoy a break from cooking and have a holiday ourselves, when people book this whole prestigious property for their own use as their own private, self-contained Holiday Home. We would be available for local information and help when needed and to maintain the lawns, gardens and pool. We have our own apartment and garden on the same acreage property, and a quiet Poodle. Your being here enjoying the facilities gives us a chance to stay with family on the mainland too. Trevor is an Australian, a qualified Chef, a Manufacturing Engineer and retired G.M. of a large organization helping people with Disabilities. Yvonne, formerly a New Zealander, worked in the airline and travel industry for years, then trained as a Teacher, teaching at South Bank Institute of TAFE in Brisbane. We have lived and worked in New Zealand, South Africa, Britain and Australia and travelled widely. We are really interested in meeting people and learning their stories...
Yvonne Hulbert purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Yvonne Hulbert chose Macleay Island
Everything here is designed around guests' comfort and enjoyment. We designed and Commercially built Yarrandabbi Dreaming ourselves to exceed the expectations of travellers and the Licencing - Commercial requirements. The year we opened we won the Best Hosted Accommodation regional awards 2 years in a row... The good bicycles, the large Canoe, fishing gear and beach chairs for fishing off our beach under shady trees on a hot afternoon, the crab pots, the pool, BBQ and various outdoor nooks you can escape to, are here for your free use! Just like your Personal Resort. Then you return to beautiful accommodation with everything you need and more to relax and be entertained. Large flat-screened digital TV's with Foxtel and Netflix and free WiFi, or, light up the BBQ and eat alfresco over the pool - or 300 metres around the corner order the best fish and Chips or Chinese, or, frequent the Scorpion Coffee Cafe, maybe take the courtesy transport 1km up to Club Macleay and its scenic venue for excellent Bistro meals and entertainment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Trevor and I were going to build a small house and retire we invited some of our colleagues to a picnic on this land before building and they were astounded by the beautiful scenery, the tranquility and almost tame prolific birdlife. They urged us to build a B&B instead for others to enjoy this now rare, away from the noise, stress, traffic and mainland madness! So, we did. Being action people with experiences of high standards of accommodation world-wide, and knowing that we have a very special natural, unique destination here, we designed this spacious, special place for others to share and enjoy. Our name "Yarrandabbi Dreaming" was given to us by Aunty Margaret, Elder of the Quandamooka people who used to gather shell fish, hunt, fish and 'picnic' on our land over Eons. Our name tells of "The path the Ancients walked through the tall trees". Remnants of these majestic trees are still here, surviving the farming activity in the early 1900's, now gone. But we have built something very special here for your enjoyment now! Here, you can be at peace!
