Some of the comments left in our guest book
‘Thank You for a wonderful 3 days at this special time in our lives. Your service was impeccable and the breakfasts ‘to die for’
‘Your passion for detail and quality, to create something we think is outstanding, shows in your hospitality, decor and surrounds. We loved this place, felt comfortable and welcome here and congratulate you on a place truly beautiful. And as for the Jacuzzi!!!!’
‘Thank you for allowing us to share in this wonderful experience, nestled amongst the beautiful setting. Your warmth and hospitality is a real credit to you both’
‘This is indeed the esteemed address in WA Albany where all should head to when they set foot in this country. Having worked in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Group for many years I experienced a warm hospitality and luxury stay at HideAway Haven. All the small details have been taken care of..first class service. We will do a marvellous job in recommending your lovely place (The quality of the product and service makes our job easy)’
We have updated our webpage and added many new photos. Thanks to Sally from Click Media Pro for doing an awesome job in a short space of time.
We became members of Business Divas Australia – Albany Tribe which is about ‘women supporting women in the business community of Albany, Western Australia’ . At our first event it was our absolute pleasure to present a door prize of one nights accommodation at HideAway Haven. It was won by a newly married girl. Can’t wait to spoil her and her new husband.
I also had the privilege to be part of a virgin event ‘Use Magical Marketing Methods to unveil hidden profits in your business’ by Fay McLean the Aussie Business Coach. She recommended sending out newsletters...so you will be receiving more and to start a blog...so check it out. The link is below....it will be added to our webpage soon.
We also welcome our newest member to the family ‘Polly’ the ringtail possum who races across the deck to eat the cat food while our guests are sleeping.
