This lovely little house (not shack) has absolutely everything you need or could possibly want. It has been renovated with modern furniture and facilities in every room. The bathroom is fabulous, a modern wet room, with one of those large shower heads which ensure a gentle and soothing shower. Vicki, the owner, is enthusiastic and friendly, and has stocked the...

Once again we were amazed by our stay at our east coast retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. This place with great views has it all for a family to have a great holiday even if you land there through a very unseasonal stormy week in Jnauary. Back to basics of our childhood playing the many (and I... More

We had a quick stay at the beach shack and really enjoyed it with our two teenage children. Although small the three bedrooms allowed us to have our own space. Although you can see the beach it is a probably a 10 minute walk. The shack was well appointed with towels, cutlery, glasses and cooking equipment and was clean and... More

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.
