love travelling, meeting people and seeing new places.
This place is all about location, location, location! it is on a wonderful beach that has to be seen to believe! swimming in the ocean was great, we collected sea shells and just had a great time here! the beach hut was clean and very comfortable, just a great place!!
Hydeaway bay is a glorious place and for a rustic stay on the foreshore Ryl's place is fantastic. A large one room cabin has everything you need - very good selection of cooking equipment, large fridge, all the cleaning and bug killer stuff you could want - and a very comfortable double bed. Ryl communicates well and all her recommendations - to shop in Airline Beach or Proserpine, where to go and what to do - were spot on. I cannot recommend this highly enough for a seaside stay without phone, internet or TV - just lovely peaceful surroundings. I could write more but am digitally handicapped for another week and thought it better to do this sooner rather than later.
Ryl and Dave have found paradise... And set up camp!!
I can not rate this accommodation highly enough. The location is wonderful, seconds to the beach with great wildlife to see on the reef their and surrounding the house.
The 'hut' itself has everything you could need and is very clean and comfortable.
Ryl is a wonderful host, very communicative and generous.
Lastly I think it was great value for money. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to anyone looking to an extremely private escape to relax and unwind.
Well what can I say. I expected so little yet feel we got so much from our stay at the beach hut. Just my wife and I ( and a couple of harmless Gheckos and tiny frogs) so plenty of room and privacy, although I see that Ryl has definately set the hut up to easily cater for a family group. The hut is clean and has that crisp freshly painted feel . I have never been so relaxed as this before, just idling away the day sleeping and swimming and reading in the quiet surrounds. The stingers had not arrived so we literally sat in the warm blue waters of the bay and talked and daydreamed away especially at late noon and early evening after the tide had come in over the reef and warmed the water to luke warm bath temp. The reef does mean that for 2 hours either side of low tide there is not much swimming to be had but you can wander all over the reef in ankle deep water picking and poking in the rock pools. There are 2 awesome resorts within a few mins drive that have music and bar facilities during the day and great waterfront dining options for nights. To be honest you would be just as happy lighting up the BBQ at the hut and cooking up your own delights. Its an easy drive to the jump off point to the Whitsunday islands for a day trip out on a tour boat if you feel the need for a tourist day out. Overall I can not praise Ryl or the humble beach hut enough. We had an awesome time and definately will be back !
The beach hut is a perfect little place to escape and rejuvenate. Ryl was wonderful communicating and making sure everything was properly arranged. We had a fantastic time as a family. Hydeaway Bay Beach is a great getaway.
When Ryl and her daughter came to stay we hardly noticed them at all. They were both friendly and polite and very self sufficient, taking themselves off for walks to explore the beaches and island and then later going out for dinner. The perfect guests who would be welcome again any time.
Ryl and Jenny were perfect guests, even ariving as they did on a cool night with an unexpected power cut. They managed this with great grace and humour and were extremely respectful of the cottage, leaving it as neat as a pin. Welcome back anytime, both of you and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Fremantle.
