We chose Kims Beach Hideaway to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary this week. We were very fortunate to receive an upgrade to the South Beach Villa to make our celebration extra special. The villa was very clean, and perfectly laid out with a heated pool, jacuzzi & sauna all with absolute beach frontage. Meals were excellent & staff very accommodating.... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed our absolute beach location with direct ocean views and that you found our beach bungalows clean and comfortable. It is disappointing that you felt something about your bungalow needed updating? Our menus offer a large variety of seafood, something that is thoroughly enjoyed by the majority of our patrons....

We treated ourselves to a night’s stay at Kim's Retreat in early January in one of the garden beach houses with a hot tub. The room was quaint romantic, private & very clean. The tradition of Kim's buffet exceeded our expectations. The food & service was amazing. This is not a standard hotel & buffet. Everything is of the highest... More

We first stayed at Kim's in December 2012 and fell in love with the place.With great anticipation we returned to Kim's on Thursday 21/1/16. The location is the best. Sitting outside our bangalow looking out at the horizon past the trees and you forget you are on the central coast. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, our bangalow... More

We have enjoyed our regular visits to Kims for some 40 years, which just keeps getting better and better! Of course, Kims have come an unbelievably long way in those 40 years, from their original fibro huts to their world class modern Bungalows, offering the ultimate in comfort and luxury! But what really made Kims special is their amazing meals.... More

Kims Hideaway really is a unique spot. Total privacy and absolute beach front to a really great swim and fishing location. This property has been around for 128 and is constantly popular because it is so unique. Over the years, we have stayed here 3 times and will probably revisit one day? However, with a little tweaking here and there,... More
