“We shall stay more days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

It's a really lovely place on the high side of the road with water view. It's nearly got everything as a home place you need. I was so impressed by the game cabinet, treasure garage as well as the little kid draw under the bed. I will come back again for summer for more water activities.

Looking forward to our third stay at Scamander Beach Shack. Everything you can think of this shack has.! It's so neat and clean and if the weather is not a beach day, don't worry they have a great games room with entertain for the children and adults. The supplied fishing gear, surf and body boards are a great bonus having them available for you. Extra freezer space in the games room is fantastic and the view from the the shack of the ocean is just beautiful. So if the shack ever goes on the market, we would be first in with an offer. Thank You Vicki and Family

We really enjoyed our Easter stay at the Shack! The location was excellent, just across the road from the beach and close to everything you need.. bread, milk and of the local 'watering hole'. The Shack itself was terrific, everything had been thought of and the little 'extra's' were appreciated.
Overall we had a great time, came away feeling relaxed (that was the intention) and committed to visiting next time we are in Tas. Would recommend to others...

Dear Sarah

Forgive this late response to your wonderful Tripadvisor Review on Scamander Beach Shack! Either it was operator error or a bug in the system at the time of your review that wouldn't allow me to respond. But that has all been remedied now. Thank you for such a fantastic review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at the shack and hope you will come back to stay at the shack in the future! :-)

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Scamander Beach Shack and as usual we are never disappointed. This time we found some little chocolate treats left out for us and the complimentary soft drink and spring water in the fridge was a welcome surprise too. We always enjoy the views and homeliness of the shack. We can walk to the pub for tea and have a few drinks without having to worry about driving over the limit. This time the fishing in the Scamander River was successful and we enjoyed a fresh bream for breakfast. Our furry daughter Ruby loves the beach fishing with her Dad and I get to sleep in. What more can you ask for ?
