Over the years, we have invested for our future, and in 2005 we decided to purchase more property in Hervey Bay. At the time, a serious illness had forced Kris to be unable to drive, and our mission was to find a modern home within a very short walking distance to the beach and the shops.
We didn't want an old home, but a roomy and comfortable one for our pleasure.
It had to be totally secure, and be safe for our ever increasing brood of young grandchildren.
We almost missed 24 Leslie Lane, Scarness when it came on the market, as we didn't realise that the street was traversed by open space, and that it had no through access.
But imagine our surprise when we stepped inside and found everything that we had on our wish list! Not only was is large and spacious, but it had the most fabulous Bali-styled garden, with plants we had never before laid eyes upon.
The house was let for two years as a holiday rental with a local agent.
For more than 30 years we holidayed in Hervey Bay. Our children swam in the safe waters at Scarness, and our daughter, to her absolute delight, caught her first whiting from the very same same beach.
Their grandfather used to take them out on his boat, and they always had a very enjoyable time.
Our family links to Hervey Bay date back to 1954, and John went to school at Torquay State School. Our father Dale, was a business man in Pialba, and his shop is still there to be seen. We retired to Hervey Bay in 2007.
John's grandmother lived at Urangan, close to the Esplanade, and her home it a local icon. In those days it did not have a second story and was not painted orange!
While we constructed our retirement home,we moved into Leslie Lane. In 2007,a we re-visited the holiday accomodation marketplace, eventually deciding to create a boutique style holiday home, unique to the norm.
We knew the benefits of living so close to the water, and our dogs could not get enough of the freedom of the off-leash beach. With the added benefit of being within easy walking distance to all facilities.
Why the name Annesley Haus?, it is in honour of a very special person, a hard working man who had the best gardens, John's dad, Dale Herron and of our memories of our time in New Guinea, where Annesley House is spelt in the German way of Annesley Haus, plus we have some very special memories of our trips overseas, especially to Germany!
