About Annie Haynes

Our family have been enjoying holidays in Robe for 40+ years. The beaches are so beautiful and over the last 20 years the township has developed as a tourist hub and provides all the facilities needed on a beach holiday. We love Robe in Summer and Winter. Some days it's just great to curl up with a good book and others it's all go starting with a clifftop walk, a coffee at one of the many cafes, followed by a quick 9 holes of golf. Lunch and perhaps a movie before catching up with friends for a drink at the Cale and a bite to eat before heading home to rest up for the next day. Whatever your choice life at Robe is fabulous. Use it as a base for touring the Limestone Coast or simply an escape from the rat race. Looking forward to seeing you down here. Robe is worthy of your bucket list. Cheers Annie

Why Annie Haynes chose Robe

We chose The Shelter because of it's position in the town. Walking distance to everything from beaches, galleries, retail, cafes, restaurants and cinema. Quiet location in the wonderful Hoopers Beach enclave.

What makes this house unique

As the name suggests The Shelter is just that. Many a breezy day - we are at the beach so it is often breezy - it is still comfortable to sit outside with the paper in the lee of the wind be it from the north or south. The pantry is stocked with the basics - olive oil, a selection of Twinings teas and coffees including the local Mahalia No2 Blend. You receive a welcoming bottle of local Wangolina Wine and a breakfast hamper for a cooked breakfast on your first morning. Cereals are in the pantry for subsequent mornings. So if you arrive late, particularly in winter there is no need to get to the supermarket first thing. We welcome your special furry friends and the back garden is fenced so they can roam - of course, we can't guarantee security if your pet digs or jumps. We also offer a late check out at 11am so there is no need to scramble out of bed and rush off.

Very pleasant and convenient location - 2 minutes walk from the cinema and shops! However, quiet and peaceful and an easy 5 minute walk to Hooper's Beach. House is light, airy and is well furnished with living areas conveniently located. All equipment is in good order and we especially liked a very eclectic collection of books and CD's!
