We loved our time at the beach shack. The location is perfect and there was absolutely everything a family of five could need to keep busy rain or shine. The children (aged 2,3 and 6) were well catered for with plenty of towels and suitable beds ready. The shed was such a treat for us all to be given access... More

Great place to stay for my birthday and our 15th wedding anniversary, my family loved it. Hubby walked to the bridge and fished (he even caught some!), kids played in the shed or watched DVD's and I got to relax and read a book! Brilliant to have all the bits and pieces in the kitchen that you don't want to... More

We loved our 3 night stay at the beach shack. The view of the waves from the living room was stunning, especially on our first night when we arrived just as the sun was setting - magical. Our boys 3 and 6 loved the yard and the "shed" - there was enough room for them to kick a footy and... More

My wife and I stayed at the shack for one night only, but after arriving there wished we had stayed for longer. The shack itself was really nice inside, had great views of the beach and wasn't far at all from some great restaurants and beaches. Would definitely recommend The Blue Shed in St Helens ,10 -15mins away for a... More

Our 4th stay and it only gets better. Great renovation of the bathroom, more things to enjoy with our kids; the pool table was a hit.

Stayed for 5 nights in December, wow what a wonderful place, one of the best self catering properties we've been in, everything you could need and more. The view from the balcony just gorgeous. Absolutely loved Tasmania and wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended for a base to view the beautiful east coast.

A very homely, well appointed little shack a easy 7 iron from the beach! Exspresso machine, pool table, board games, DVD's galore, books, magazines, well stocked fridge and pantry, Sheridan sheets and towels.... No expense has been spared to ensure that you feel like you are at your own home. A shack in appearance only!
