Cottage to Camper

Holidays and breaks away are one of the many ways we recharge, regroup and recalibrate. Cottage to Camper offers Hollywood Hideaway (1950s bungalow) and Tremendous Teardrop (teardrop caravan) as very different holiday options.

Hollywood Hideaway Holiday homes

It is our goal to make these incredibly important breaks away accessible for as many guests as possible by:

  • Appreciating that pets have a very important place in some guests lives and allowing guests to bring pets so they can enjoy their holiday together.
  • Making families welcome by opening the second bedroom so that small groups can experience Hollywood Hideaway together.
  • Keeping accommodation costs to a minimum.
  • Providing safe and secure accommodation.

When purchased, the bungalow, now known as Hollywood Hideaway, was derelict. The decision to renovate, rather than demolish was made out of an overriding motivation to preserve a little of Mandurah’s early holiday fishing town history.

The house was built around 1950 and was used as a holiday house (and still is!) for a family that loved fishing. We know they were passionate fisher people because of receipts found during the renovation showing boat registrations and also, in the laundry, there was a huge copper builtin that was used for cooking up the crabs! Although the copper had to be removed to make way for a more practical washing machine, it has been retained and will, in time, be bought back to the property to be repurposed.

This house would have been very smart for its era. Built out of rammed reinforced cement and red brick; it is very solid. We can see the owners who built the house were heavily influenced by the Art Deco era when we look at the fireplace in the music room (decommissioned), high ceilings and glass panelled internal doors. The rich coloured jarrah floorboards were covered in lino and carpet so were perfectly preserved.

Hollywood Hideaway has been renovated to enhance the original features and brought up to a standard that one might have experienced staying at the best hotels at the height of the Hollywood glam era.

The only part of the property that has not been renovated is the patio pavement. It has been left so one can get a sense of the state of the property prior to renovation and the ‘life’ this amazing house has seen.
