A beautiful day @ Mistaken Island

Our 'Foot Prints' in the sand

A busy Easter Weekend @ the beach
The beach from Mistaken Island to Goode Beach is one of our favourite Beaches.  Mistaken Island is a small island located approximately 5 kilometres South East of Albany on the way to Camp Quaranup.
Located in King George Sound the island is located approximately 120 metres from Vancouver Peninsula.
In 1971, the island was declared as a class 1A Nature Reserve with a total area of 12 hectares. The area adjacent to the island is used to cultivate mussels on long lines which you can see from the beach.  This is also a favourite place for snorkelling and fishing.

Special Guests

Luxury Accommodation in Albany
 HideAway Haven ~ Happiness and Harmony Happen Here

We had some very special guests stay with us this week....Mahnaz & Helma.
Helma brought her mother to HideAway Haven ~ Luxury Accommodation to celebrate her mothers 60th birthday.  How special to have mother and daughter here.  Mum even got into the Jacuzzi one afternoon.  On their first night they invited us out to dinner.  This is the message they left in our guest book ~

Dearest Maggie & Becki

This place is a treasure,
You have put a lot of thought and care into making your visitors stay comfortable and memorable,
This has been a relaxing and peaceful way to celebrate Mum's 60th, even though she keeps commenting that it's quite a romantic setting!  I know that she has enjoyed it.
Thank you for your warmth, hospitality and sincere friendliness; that is probably what we cherish the most.
'In the garden of my heart plant naught but the rose of love....'
Much love    Mahnaz & Helma
      (Mum wants to say that she loved how clean and tidy everything was!)

This is why we won the Customer Service Award in the recent Business Award!!  we love and enjoy our guests.  It may have seemed a little romantic for Mum...but how special to be able to spend a couple of days at HideAway Haven ~ Happiness and Harmony Happen Here with your daughter.  Happy 60th Mahnaz...glad we could share it with you.

They enjoyed a special breakfast on their private deck every morning of their stay

HideAway Hostesses out 'n' about

HideAway Haven ~ Happiness and Harmony Happen Here

One of our favourite places to visit on a day off is Denmark - where the Forest meets the Sea.
Denmark is a fabulous food and wine region. The rugged coastline, beautiful beaches, inlets, rivers, towering karri forests make Denmark the perfect place to spend a day.  After our lunch we headed to Ocean Beach where we spent time watching the kite surfers, waves and people on the beach.  The sky and the water were a brilliant blue colour and it was nice to be outdoors smelling fresh sea air.

HideAway Haven ~ Luxury Accommodation hostesses had a very rare Saturday off today, so they headed off to 'the Lake House' in Denmark for a relaxing lunch.  It really was an awesome day with blue skies.  Denmark is a 30 min beautiful drive from Albany.

We don't often get a chance to have someone else cook for us so we splurged today and enjoyed

The Lake House Gourmet Lunch 
A banquet to indulge your senses with a spectacular selection of prawns marinated in red wine vinegar & tarragon, Mt Barker Smoked Trout with Vinofood Onion, Thyme & Red Wine Jam, Mt Barker Smoked Chicken, nut patties topped with Vinofood Tomato & Riesling Relish, vegetable frittata, Vinofood Beetroot & Shiraz Relish, antipasto bowl, Capel Club cheddar & Tasmanian Lactos brie cheeses complimented with Vinofood Wine Jelly, Semillon Pickled Pears and Fig, Apple & Chardonnay Chutney, garden salad drizzled with our chef’s special dressing, house baked bread & wafers.

We enjoyed a glass of classic white wine with our lunch. I loved the Tomato & Riesling & Beetroot and Shiraz Relishes, and Becki really enjoyed the Onion, Thyme & Red Wine Jam and the Semillon Pickled Pears.

Service was friendly and quick, ambiance amazing and relaxing.

If staying at HideAway Haven a trip to Denmark's 'the Lake House' is worth putting on your itinerary.  They also have a very cheeky wine label called 'He Said She Said'

There is a range of vino food and winespa products available.  Definitely worth a look and taste.
