Huskisson B&B - Jervis Bay {Australia}

Hello everyone!

Yes, we are back from Australia, and I am back to the blogging world with loads of things to share with you. First of all, our holiday trip was awesome! We had a great time in Sydney and enjoyed a lot our planned vacation in the Jervis bay area {which is about 2 and a half hours south of Sydney}.

I want to share with you today about our lovely stay in Huskisson Bed & Breakfast. Kate and Stephen were our wonderful hosts for two days and the kids {and us} enjoyed the time spent in this charming and tastefully renovated weatherboard cottage built in 1913!
We had the whole family suite for ourselves which includes a nice bedroom for parents with French doors to the garden, second bedroom for kids and a big bathroom with bathtub and shower!

As Kate describes it best herself on the website:
The B&B has been recently renovated and decorated to create an uncomplicated, beachy feel.
All our guest rooms are spacious and uncluttered with a hint of retro chic. All the guests’ bedrooms have French doors leading out onto the verandah, or garden terrace area. The stylish, modern ensuite bathrooms all have big clawfoot baths, generous walk-in showers and a heated towel rail or underfloor heating.
Guests have the use of a sitting-room with a wood fire for winter, a selection of magazines, games to play and books to read. Furnished with our cosy favourites and decorated with our collection of real art and vintage touches, the ambiance is welcoming, relaxing and unique.

Breakfast was served in the verandah which was such a privilege with the sun gently rising above us. A beloved feeling I dearly miss in Singapore as we don't have a balcony/ terrasse/ verandah... although we have a lot of sun!
We were treated with delicious fruit salad, freshly baked bread, homemade jam, eggs and great coffee every morning. I loved my cappuccino, thank you so much Stephen!

We were lucky enough to share the common area with another family with a little girl who was just about Chloe's age. They had fun playing together and it certainly added to the pleasure of not having to provide entertainment to our 4 year-old :)

We mainly spent our time at the beach, and visiting one National Park where we saw wild kangaroos {including a huge male that truly scared us!}. We even managed to see a dolphin while in Shark Net beach: magical and beautiful!

I highly recommend you to visit Jervis Bay and stay over at Huskisson Bed & Breakfast if you have the chance to live in NSW or plan a visit to Sydney soon. It will truly amaze you!

Kate has recently started a blog called Love in a B&B where she shares her behind the scenes and make-over of her lovely B&B. It doesn't hurt that she writes so well too! Pay her visit, you will love it...
