We really have no complaints at all about this little blue shack, it was a great place for us to stay while we went fishing and enjoyed the beach on the East Coast. The place was spotless and had all we would need, will most likely use again.

The Scamander Beach Shack is a perfect getaway for families or couples. When we stayed it was just my partner and myself and we found the whole experience from the start of the booking process to the final product were above any perceived expectations!! And we went in with high expectations after reading other reviews. It really does feel like... More

Where do I start?!!! My ever bored teenagers were not looking forward to a week away from their beloved Play Stations and internet... however, WOW and WOW again! As soon as we opened the door to the Beach Shack, it immediately felt like home! So well equipped, and the big surprise was when the 14 and 16 year olds opened... More

The beach shack had everything you could possibly need, even surf boards, pool table and ping pong table. It has a lovely modern bathroom and very comfortable furniture. It is very well kept and has nice views of the beach. It was sad that we only had 1 night there cause we cuold have easily stayed a week or more.... More

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.
