Terms and Conditions

Kyle's Cottage


Eligibility for Accommodation

Kyle's Cottage is located at 12 Greenshank Drive, Roebuck Estate in Broome, 2,240 kms north of Perth.  The local community has donated funds, goods and time to provide this respite accommodation for families who are in need of a break from the gruelling treatment schedule faced when a child is or has undergone intensive treatment.

The Kyle Andrews Foundation Inc is able to provide at Kyle’s Cottage a week of holiday accommodation at no cost (*) for families with children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses or for families who have recently experienced the bereavement of a child.

Families referred by Princess Margaret Hospital Social Workers, Canteen, Camp Quality, Starlight Foundation and the Leukaemia Foundation are eligible. The Foundation will also look at all cases presented outside of those organisations listed. All applications will be assessed on a case by case basis. 

Rates and Cost Assistance

The first stay at Kyle's Cottage is complimentary for families undergoing oncology treatment at Perth Children's Hospital in Perth. Families may also apply for travel assistance to get to Broome but this is not guaranteed.  Individual cases are presented to the Kyle Andrews Foundation Inc. committee for determination on the financial assistance deemed appropriate.

Families are welcome to apply to enjoy further visits to Kyle's Cottage at their own travel cost and can make application to The Kyle Andrews Foundation Inc. committee. If approved the subsequent visits will incur a fee of $500 per week.  This offer is also available to nursing staff working in the Oncology Ward at the Perth Children's Hospital.

Preference for holiday dates will always be given to first time guests and families with kids undergoing treatment.
