We have just spent three nights celebrating our one year anniversary at the Beach House and it was magic!
Craig and Sally were truly perfect hosts and made us feel really welcome, they were so friendly and could not do enough for us - even gave us a chilled bottle of Champagne on arrival with the most delicious home-made Lemon Slice!
Every morning the breakfasts are superb, its worth coming just for the home-made museli and rhubarb!! ITS AMAZING!! Everything is so delicious and the organic fresh produce is bought from the local farmers markets..which are great - and a nice touch.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and relaxing with balconies overlooking the beautiful Albany coast, there are heated towel rails in the bathroom, a spa in the room and big fluffy white robes.
Every afternoon after a day of sightseeing, you return to the smiling faces of Craig and Sally, eager to enquire about your day, then to return to your room that has been cleaned and a treat left! ...every day it was something different, home made muffins or brownies which was a fabulous surprise and always delicious!
(not forgetting the port and chocolates everyday too - great touch!).
The beach is amazing and only about 100 steps (if that) away, and very easy to get to down the bottom of the road. It does not take long to walk to the end of the beach where there are coffee shops and a seafood restaurant that also sells take aways and ice creams, and a kids playground. You can even lend bikes for the day! (and for any keen golfer - they will hire you a set of clubs for the golf course that is less than 50m away!)
There is a library at the beach house with a large assortment of books and also a great selection of dvd's to watch on the plasma TV in your room!
The main part of town (port side) is only a small drive away, although we noticed that many locals jogged around, along a beautiful footpath alongside the coast that offeres great views and photo opportunities!
We had a fabulous time and can't wait to return.. hopefully it wont be too long!
