“Mini rainforest retreat”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

We stayed at Bicheno Hideaway for five days and four nights in Nov 2011. The accomdation was a chalet. The owners were warm,friendly,hospitable and very welcoming people.It had well eqipped wash room and kitchen. They gave me a very attractive and tasty birthday cake and a bouqet since my family celebrated my birthday on 11-11-11. The chalet was in a bush surrounded by mini rainforest with peacocks around all the time and some small wild life animals. The ocean was just opposite and the beach was rocky with orange colors.
On the whole it was agreat place to stay with the family and memorable too.

We stayed at Bicheno Hideaway for four nights and took full advantage of the peace and quiet afforded by its location just outside town and right next to the ocean. The cabins aren't luxurious but have everything you need: full kitchen, heaters, wifi, even hot water bottles for the chilly evenings. The abundance of wildlife both during the day and at night was a highlight, with everything from peacocks and chickens to possums and wallabies roaming the grounds. Overall a very relaxed place to spend a few days. We may well return.

Wonderful landscape and wildlife surrounding the accommodation. Clean, comfortable accommodation that is a little bit different. Well equiped kitchen facilities. Very friendly and helpful owners. Good collection of dvds that can be borrowed free of charge. A great place to stay.

After 4 nights in Hong Kong staying here was a wonderful and much needed shock to the system. The accommodation comprises a handful of well-maintained, beautifully designed, privately detached wooden houses/chalets arranged within verdant bush, with an allotment and assorted wildlife a few metres back from low, rocky coastline. It is several minutes drive south of the modern village of Bicheno which has food shops, restaurants, a bar, and a very good pharmacist. Altogether an excellent place, and we did not want to leave.

Our family of two adults and two children stayed in these lovely cabins for three nights and had a wonderful time. We could have stayed longer. We stayed in chalet 4 wich was light, airy and had everything we needed, including a coffee machine thanks to the owner Nick, who very kindly lent us his own after the original one in the chalet went kapput. The chalets front onto a lovely view and a beach walk / rock hop round to the town. Like others, we were charmed with the wallabies, peacock and peahens, and other assorted wildlife. Bicheno was a great base to Freycinet National Park.

Having spent July in fabulous permanent tent accomodation in the Kimberleys, W.A. this cabin looked like a pleasant reminder. We were not disappointed! I requested and got a cabin with a view of the sea. Sitting in the main room or balcony was a treat. The peacocks, wallabies and possums that visited daily added to the experience. You would need a car to stay here as it is a little out of town, but only a couple of minutes with transport. The owners were lovely and were happy to share vegetables from their garden, books and DVDs. Would definitely recommend.

These cabins are just fabulous. Set away from the main town they are perfect for a get a way from a hectic life but close enough to enjoy exploring the region. The hosts are delightful and couldn't be more welcoming. Our cabin was clean and tidy with plenty of kitchen facilities etc.
The wildlife is amazing, coming right on to the decking and the sunsets are out of this world.
This is one of the best places I've stayed at.
