After saying “are we there yet” every half hour on the freeway, we pulled in to the driveway of someone’s house at Huskisson. Mark looked down at his phone and said, “Just looking for the directions.” I was safely assuming we had at least another hour in the car…
Until I saw a man walk out the side of the house with a set of keys and a huge smile on his face. “You must be Milly and Mark!” He said, handing the keys to Mark.
It was then that I realised this is where we would be staying for the next two nights.
A very well kept secret, and an excellent choice on Stayz.com.au. We walked through the Chinese gates and into a beautiful Indonesian inspired garden. The outdoor living area had timer slats around the garden for extra privacy, AND a hammock.
In the morning, we made bacon and egg rolls before heading off to Hyams beach. You know – the one with the whitest sand in the world?
The waves were serious dumpers, towering above my head before crashing over me and tumbling me back to shore. It gave me vivid memories of my childhood…
DAD: MILLY SWIM OUT TO ME

MILLY: I GOT THIS

A few slops of suncream, two take-away burgers and a beer later – we’re back at the room swinging in the hammock.
