Luxury Accommodation in Albany
HideAway Haven ~ Happiness and Harmony Happen Here
We celebrated Maggie's birthday this week with another visit to our favourite restaurant Lime 303. As always the service was brilliant , attentive and unobtrusive. Becki had a seafood tasting plate, consisting of three various ocean delectables and Maggie had pan seared nor-west prawns in a creamy garlic, chardonnay-feta sauce, layered on crispy herbed polenta with sugar snap peas for entree. For main Becki had Oregano, Garlic & Lemon Roasted Mount Barker Chicken Breast on baked fennel topped with persian feta , watercress salad and an orange glaze. Maggie tried the Grilled Pork Cutlet served on white bean mash with roasted apple, green beans, smoked bacon and a maple balsamic glaze. The chef is entering this dish in a Pork Cooking competiton. We were disappointed that a few subtle changes to the menu resulted in the presentation not being up to Lime 303's usual standard..
Lime 303 has an extensive cocktail menu.

Our Waffle French Toast served with cream, caramel sauce and fruit.
We had some very special guests stay with us this week....Mahnaz & Helma.
Helma brought her mother to HideAway Haven ~ Luxury Accommodation to celebrate her mothers 60th birthday. How special to have mother and daughter here. Mum even got into the Jacuzzi one afternoon. On their first night they invited us out to dinner. This is the message they left in our guest book ~
Dearest Maggie & Becki
This place is a treasure,
You have put a lot of thought and care into making your visitors stay comfortable and memorable,
This has been a relaxing and peaceful way to celebrate Mum's 60th, even though she keeps commenting that it's quite a romantic setting! I know that she has enjoyed it.
Thank you for your warmth, hospitality and sincere friendliness; that is probably what we cherish the most.
'In the garden of my heart plant naught but the rose of love....'
Much love Mahnaz & Helma
(Mum wants to say that she loved how clean and tidy everything was!)
This is why we won the Customer Service Award in the recent Business Award!! we love and enjoy our guests. It may have seemed a little romantic for Mum...but how special to be able to spend a couple of days at HideAway Haven ~ Happiness and Harmony Happen Here with your daughter. Happy 60th Mahnaz...glad we could share it with you.
Saul & Dearne spent their first night together as husband and wife @ HideAway Haven. They enjoyed their first breakfast together as a married couple on their private deck joined by rosellas and fairy wrens. We presented them with a special candle from Ti Amo Candles as a memento of their stay.
We are also enjoying all our guests during this Easter Break. Its always sad to see them go, but we get excited about welcoming new guests.
