Where will I be?
Rose Cottage is located on the corner of Aster and Rose Streets in the very Northwest corner of the Hyams Beach village. Across the road is National Park land so all is quiet and peaceful and full of animal and bird life. Chinamans Beach is a very easy walk along Aster Street and the Hyams Beach Cafe is either a slightly longer walk or a very easy drive.
Why choose Rose Cottage?
Rose Cottage is a classic Hyams cottage with many original features including a separate outside toilet that adjoins the house, an original bathroom with shower only and a 1950's fridge that you will never see elsewhere. It is easy to get back to basics with NO television or dishwasher in this cottage. For these reasons, the cottage may be too rustic for some, but it is otherwisea quaint, cosy and good option for a coupleor small family. If in doubt, please phone us to be clear about how rustic the cottage is.
How is the property laid out?
Rose Cottage has a small living room, kitchen, queen bedroom, twin bedroom and combined laundry/shower bathroom inside.

Wi-Fi, Internet, Netflix or Pay TV - will I have it?
This particular property does NOT offer Wi-Fi. If you bring an internet dongle with you, the best network is generally Telstra.

What about outdoors?
Rose Cottage has a tiled porch by the front door with views down Aster Street to Chinamans beach. It also has a lovely lawn, perfect for an evening picnic.

Classic fibro beach shackJoan Nankervis - 6th May 2021
A very comfortable stay in a classic fibro beach shack decorated in retro style. All needs are catered for though the very basic bathroom and outdoor toilet and steps may not suit others.
A great place to stay for a small family. Great location, national park on one side and a beautiful beach not more than a 150metres away. You don’t feel like you’re staying in the middle of suburbia. Do recommend if you want to go back in time and somewhat back to basics. Bryan.
We loved our stay in Hyams Beach. Everything was great, really comfortable and clean. We even say Kangaroos by the house!
Like stepping into 1955Vanessa Priest - 15th December 2020
Lovely little beach house, so close to Chinaman’s beach. Small but has all you need for a break to get away from it all. Love the fact that it’s a. It like stepping into 1955, the house and furniture are all vintage. Only issue is with the beds, super uncomfortable as they’re very very soft.
We had a great stay at the cottage. The location was excellent. Enjoyed the retro vibe. Late Sunday checkout was fantastic. Thanks 🙏🏽
Pretty simple place but in a great location!
Fabulously charming cottage in a perfect location. I'll be back.
Fantastic Locationfrwr - 10th January 2020
My family and I had a wonderful Christmas spent at the Rose cottage. The location was fantastic, the cottage itself was simple but provided everything we needed. It was cosy, spotless and with its retro flair we thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent there. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous space with us.
Simple holiday shack - perfect for a quiet getawayMeagan - 6th January 2019
The house is located opposite bushland so we saw plenty of wildlife and had quiet nights. It was a real treat to stay here, as it reminded me of a holiday house my family used to own. Everything is original, including the 60 year old fridge that worked a charm! The only niggle was that the beds could do with an update. The single bed frames squeaked and the queen bed had probably seen better days. There was also quite a bit of clutter in the house that could be removed to enable better enjoyment of the amenities, i.e. some of the cupboards were full with stored clothes and shoes.
Great stay!guest1 - 3rd March 2017
The house was not a classy hotel but exactly what we needed when getting away from the city to enjoy the beauty around Hyams beach. The house made a perfect little getway virtually seconds from the beach.
