Hosts: John and Kris Herron


When we set up the holiday house  we did so, at a standard not usually seen.  We have been fortunate to have travelled to many overseas places and stayed in many styles and types of holiday accomodation over the years.  We brought those ideas and experience into the setting of our holiday home,

Our agents at the time strongly advised against the presentation of the home, recommending that holiday houses should not be so personalised.  However with over 20 years in the real estate industry, in Brisbane including the management of over 450 properties, our superior standards with presentation and cleanliness ruffled a few local feathers.

But, much to their consternation, our guests simply loved the home, most of them felt it spoilt them for any other holiday accommodation that they may choose in the future.


We updated the colour schemes to a more modern appealing tone, we installed European Swish style curtains, and updated the bedroom cupboards and installed wire racks, and floor to ceiling mirror doors.  We added timber blinds for comfort, and we custom designed a 3 person spa.

Modern stylish ceiling fans, painting and lighting completed the makeover.

Annesley Haus At The Bay is a combination of the styles usually associated with Bed & Breakfasts or cottage stays, plus it is fully self-contained for our guests benefits.

No more having to bring all the linen, cleaning products, and basic needs on holiday, we provide all those items, including beach towels and picnic baskets. 

Most comments in our Guest Book relate to our guests having a relaxing holiday, where their every need was catered for.  They all enjoyed the use of our pantry items and well stocked pantry.

We can arrange for special stays, just ask.

Time for a change, and we did!  This time to a more modern feel with updates in the dining and lounge areas, black leather lounge suite and furniture.

We are constantly updating the property to ensure that high standards are met.  Our repeat guests also appreciate the changes.


For most of the year we have travelled to the UK and undertook a study in how the B&B's were run  We stayed in 30 across Germany, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

We swapped some ideas with others, and realised that there was not much more that we could offer.

Changes in the air!
