THE GREEN WHALER, Hyams Beach – 4pm Check Out Sundays (except Peak season)!
Retreat and unwind in the Green Whaler Cottage - where the sound of Jervis Bay can be heard when curled up on the balconies chair, the smell of salt lingering softly in the air. Sip a crisp drink or a strong coffee and let the sun warm your skin while sinking into the eccentric-chic beach vibe that this modernly styled cottage is.
This charmingly art-centric, 3 bedroom, two storied candy-coloured cottage is situated just behind the main street of Hyams Beach. Simply cross the road and you have the privilege of uninterrupted days spent on fine white sand. Swim in the soft ocean waters of one of Australia's most treasured beaches and enjoy the quaintness of this sea-side (one shop!) village… A visit to ‘Hyams Beach Cafe’ for classic Aussie fish n chips is a must!
Take an early morning stroll along the shoreline, returning to the turquoise timber and art filled rooms of the cottage - where the coffee machine awaits. Spend your days bathing in the waters right in front of the cottage or at the Booderee National Park all of 10min away, where nature lovers can explore. Prefer catching waves? Curling waves found at Jervis Bay is where surfers can get their daily fix of oceans rides.
Star gaze in the evenings on the back porch, fire up the BBQ and finish the day dining in the traditionally Aussie way.
The Green Whaler is particularly suitable for beach lovers, for those with an appreciation for luxuriously secluded surroundings and admirers of the Australian wildlife… You might even find yourself sharing your morning breakfast beside the resident Lorikeets.
Strictly NO PARTIES at this property – please. You will be evicted if this rule is broken.

Where will I be?
The Green Whaler is located right in the heart of Hyams Beach. The turquoise green cottage is set back from Cyrus Street in a quiet and secluded location alongside three other historic, stylish and immaculate Whaler Cottages. You will be staying right in the heart of Hyams Beach, within an easy two minute walk to either the Middle Beach at Hyams, or the Hyams Beach Cafe.
Why stay at The Green Whaler?
The Green Whaler oozes character and charm! Built in 1995, modelled on the original 1920’s whaler's cottages from the area, this structure is a modern take on classic Australian architecture. Immaculately presented, beautifully furnished and decorated with an artist’s eye - this cottage is a beach retreat for those with an appreciation for the details in life.
How is The Green Whaler laid out?
The Green Whaler is a two storied cottage with the living space downstairs and sleeping upstairs.
You will find the dining and living areas, as well as the kitchen positioned at ground level. This downstairs area is made complete with a bathroom and European styled laundry. The lower level has a front deck with outdoor furniture and a rear deck with BBQ and firewood store - ready for Aussie BBQ evenings and relaxing mornings.
The second floor of the Green Whaler has three bedrooms, consisting of two bedrooms with queen sized beds and one with a double bed. A shared bathroom and a full width juliet balcony finishes this wonderfully private level.
The kitchen is equipped with a Nespresso pod machine. A starter amount of pods is provided for your arrival so you are set and ready for a perfect morning start! You will also find ceramic takeaway coffee cups that you are welcome to use for morning beach walks or adventures with a coffee in hand.
Wi-Fi, Internet, Netflix or Pay TV – will I have it?
The Green Whaler offers complimentary Wi-Fi, however without any guarantee of reliability or bandwidth by us or the owner. If internet access is critical during your stay, please make sure that you have a Plan B!
What about outdoors?
The Green Whaler has a front balcony - a lovely serene place to put on your shoes for the day ahead, coffee cup in hand! The property also boasts a back deck at ground level which is equipped with a BBQ and a private space perfect to retreat too in the evenings. On the upstairs level you will find a full width juliet balcony facing towards Jervis Bay. A more compact addition is the small landscaped garden that joins with the gardens of the other three Whaler's Cottages.
Staying warm or keeping cool?!
For heating, the Green Whaler has a wood burning fireplace in the living room, for which a reasonable amount of firewood will be supplied. In addition, there are heaters in the bedrooms and the living room + extra blankets in all bedrooms.
For cooling, the two front upstairs bedrooms, each with ceiling fan, can be opened up to catch any available sea breeze. The third room has a large stylish floor fan which provides ample cool air during the warmer months. Each bedroom has a portable electric oil fin heater to ensure guests are warm throughout the Winter months.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
The Green Whaler is supplied with fresh linen and towels on each guest's arrival. Please bring your own beach towel however.
Parking for cars?
The Green Whaler has one car space on site, beside the Cottage, for guest use. The guest space is ideal for smaller cars only. All other parking must be on Cyrus Street, a public road. There is one visitor space for all four Whaler's Cottages - this may only be used for short parking intervals.
Is my dog or cat also welcome to stay?
The Green Whaler is not pet friendly - sorry. Please ask for a list of our pet friendly options.
What are the minimum stay rules?
There is a minimum two night stay for all bookings, which changes to three nights on long weekends, four nights at Easter and seven night blocks during peak season. Peak season runs from mid-December to the end of the Australia Day long weekend in January.
Are there any special Peak Season rules?
Please note that during peak season, our properties have designated changeover days to make the cleaning rosters manageable. We also do not schedule arrivals on the Christmas, Boxing, and New Years Day public holidays.
