We went on long beach walk today from Ledge Beach to Gull Rock. Gull Rock Beach named of course, because of the large number of Gulls found on the rock just off shore, one of whom Captain Kalgan thinks might have been Jonathan Livingstone! Gull Rock is 26k East of Albany. The water was a turquoise colour and we were tempted to jump in. Albany has some of the most stunning and pristine beaches in Australia if not the world. There are beaches for fishing, snorkelling, swimming, surfing and body boarding. Stay at HideAway Haven while in Albany and enjoy some time at the beach. We have facilities for washing bathers and towels at the end of a day at the beach.

Our vision was to offer a unique facility no other accommodation provider offered. A challenging task, there are many specialty accommodations presently in Albany. We discovered no accommodation offered a Jacuzzi under the stars. So our accommodation dream began. This would be our focus, a selling point…’Enjoy a Jacuzzi under the stars!’ and so…
Nestled amongst towering eucalypts in Amazing Albany, just 5 minutes from the city centre, a haven of luxury and tranquillity now awaits....HideAway Haven.
Surrounded by native bushland and abundant bird life, we offer a truly Australian Luxury Accommodation experience in which comfort and privacy reign supreme. Architecturally designed, the exterior combines Colorbond and cedar to stunning effect, creating a design that's uniquely Australian and supremely stylish.
Step inside and you will experience the very best in luxurious contemporary accommodation.
HideAway Haven will fill a unique niche in its market. With Albany growing through new businesses, homes and the new waterfront more and more people are coming to the area for business and tourism reasons. HideAway Haven offers tourists and business travelers alike a unique, personalised lodging experience. By focusing on HideAway Haven’s proximity to the beach, the many hiking trails including the Bibbulum Track and the centre of the South Coast Wine Region, we will cater to people interested in water activities, hiking and those who like good food and good wine. HideAway Haven will also offer amenities to attract business travelers who enjoy the “homey” feeling of a bed and breakfast over the ambiance of a traditional style hotel.
Similar to tourists who choose to stay in traditional hotels, customers who patronize B&Bs seek relaxation, fun and stress management while on vacation. However, this type of customer also prefers comfortable accommodations in a cozy, family environment. These patrons are more social, they love meeting new people while at the same time require enough privacy to enjoy their vacation. HideAway Haven has all the necessary facilities to attract such customers.
We will ensure each guest’s stay is memorable by providing unlimited comfort and service. We have created an environment of pampered luxury surpassing any currently found in Albany. HideAway Haven has three guest rooms fully equipped with TV/DVD and comfortable beds. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom, large wardrobe and private deck with outdoor furniture.
In addition to room amenities, HideAway Haven offers a common room with fully equipped kitchen for guests to use if they wish to dine in. Also offering laundry facilities; including washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board. An extensive DVD library is available as are magazines and local newspapers. A Jacuzzi is situated outdoors under the stars.
Beginning the day we opened we have provided guests with the caring and outstanding quality of service. We serve a wide selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian breakfasts. We willingly accommodate guests with vegan, non-gluten or other specialised dietary requirements. With just 3 bedrooms in our accommodation, we have ample opportunity to ensure every guest receives the very best quality of service. We enjoy developing long-lasting friendships with many of our guests. If guests prefer peace and relaxation, we happily accommodate them and safeguard their privacy. Equally, we enjoy all the adventure of striking up new friendships with many of our guests and look forward to welcoming back former guests.
