“Fantastic, friendly homely cottage”
Reviewed 24 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Hebe Cottage is located on the banks of Oyster Harbour, Bayonet Heads (10kms outside Albany). The cottage is family friendly and nestled in amongst bird feeding native trees and flower gardens. It has three bedrooms and enough sleeping for say 2 adults and 3 or 4 juniors. It was decorated with Christmas theme when we stayed with patchwork cushions and nick knacks.

The owner Rosalie is very friendly and helpful with great ideas of what to see and do in and around Albany. Advice for how to get to some of the hidden beaches, the most beautiful ones in Australia. She made fresh bread and hen eggs available during your stay. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and enough basic ingredients to assist cooking.

We all slept really well on the comfortable beds. If you like bike riding there are some good roads and paths nearby. We linked in with the Albany Cycling Club for their morning social rides.

Highly recommended for family or friends stay. You will be made to feel most welcome by Rosalie & Wayne. We'll be back for sure.

The beautiful Two Rivers Region is full of hidden gems & is perfect for all those active people who love cycling, swimming, boating, paddle boarding, snorkelling, surfing, fishing, diving & bushwalking. It is Albany's Water Playground!

A holiday cottage that Rosalie made feel like a home. The amount of preparation that Rosalie puts into Hebe Cottage is a real credit to her. Not only is the cottage well presented but she also makes a supreme effort to provide tourist material to help the guest enjoy their stay in Albany.

Thank you for staying at Hebe Cottage and for your lovely comments.
The crusty, homemade bread and fresh, free-range, Sussex eggs have become a real favourite!

“Take a break from real life......”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from our 2nd stay at Hebe Cottage and enjoyed it every bit as much as the first visit.

Life for all of us is hectic in one way or another and it's nice to have somewhere to go that provides an actual escape, won't break the bank and won't disappoint.

The property is set back from the road and is nestled behind a garden setting that is nothing short of enchanted. If you love birds (or even have a mild appreciation of them) you will love Hebe. We saw everything from Bronzwings, wrens, a variety of parrots and various other local birdlife throughout our stay. There are a couple of bird feeders right outside the master bedroom and 2nd bedroom window and it's lovely to sit in bed with your morning coffee and see who comes to visit. If you're lucky, there's a curious little Splendid Wren who, rather than sample the wares in the feeder - would rather sit on the window sill and peer in to see what's going on inside the cottage. He paid us half a dozen visits throughout our two day stay and gave us no end of smiles.

Everything is taken care of - there's milk in the fridge (real milk - actual REAL milk, and 2 litres of it!), a few farm-laid fresh eggs, tea, coffee and other thoughtful inclusions as well. There are even a couple of Lindt chocolates sitting in the fridge waiting to be enjoyed..... Not to mention the huge of loaf of fresh baked bread sitting on a cutting board, complete with bread knife. The owner very thoughtfully makes a loaf in advance of your stay according to your preference.

The kitchen has all modern, quality and very clean appliances as well as cutlery, crockery, cookware and glassware.

The linen is fresh (the owner actually told us she even washes the mattress and pillow protectors between every set of guests), the towels are soft and plentiful.

The fire is ready to be used when you arrive and enough wood for your stay is supplied. It heats the lounge room really well. There is a great assortment of DVDs, books and travel literature as well as pamphlets for a few choice local eateries.

The place is quiet and absolutely SPOTLESS. We travel every 3 months and this is the cleanest place we've stayed.

The magical Oyster Harbour is only a few minutes walk from the cottage and is something you should try and set the time aside to see. It's a very scenic and calming place to spend half an hour or more.

All I can say is don't be suspicious of the low price. The property is not the most modern or opulent place in the world (it's a cottage and what you see in the pictures is what you get) it is simply cozy, homely, clean and very welcoming.

I would like to add that many of the places we have stayed, are charging ridiculous prices for what you actually receive in the way of accommodation, location and cleanliness. This is not the case with Hebe. The owner is very realistic (possibly leaning toward the generous side) with the price and you won't be disappointed.

We'll be back.
