excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at The Beach Shack. The location was excellent enabling us to walk to the beach and shops. The yard was secure so our dog could have a holiday as well. Many games of table tennis were played over the week, we hope to return.

We arrived to realise that we had not been provided the entry code, and waited 45 mins for a response to email, calls and texts. The house itself was in a fantastic location and the large lawned yard is fabulous. However we were very surprised to find that no linen or towels were provided, as this was not stated in the listing. We then had to take two tired kids to purchase these items. it was also unexpected to receive a long list of cleaning requirements a couple of days out from arrival. We have stayed in several Stayz properties in Palm Cove and have never been expected to clean or provide ljnen. While we understand this is sometimes the case, it should be clearly stated in the listing. If cleaning is required, it's still unacceptable to demand oven cleaning and toilet scrubbing. We loved the open fire and appreciated the plentiful firewood. It was extremely disappointing to discover a house listed as 'Beach Shack with Games Room' which claimed to have a table tennis table, actually had nothing but an assortment of incomplete games and no table tennis table in sight. My message to the owner querying this matter received no reply. Given that this was a key factor in our choice of the property - and very much an attraction for our kids and friends we invited to join us for dinner - this was rather upsetting.

Great Easter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

After a busy few months with a kitchen reno happening it was a delight to get away to this gorgeous house. Filled with everything we needed and more, we all (kids and adults) had a wonderful stay. Close to beach, shops and all the sights including the Arthurs seat chairlift, there was plenty to do but also plenty of nothing to do which was fantastic. Especially loved the fireplace and awesome back deck for entertaining. We'll be back, thank you so much.

Great Location; Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at The Beach Shack to relax over the weekend. The location is perfect and the amenities enabled us to enjoy a slow cooked roast on the comfy couch and in front of the wood fire. We'll definitely return with the in-laws when they're next in Melbourne. The local shops are close by, as is Sorrento and Portsea. The Beach Shack is geared to suit either couples or families.

Fantastic for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Dads' golf weekend away here, and had a brilliant time. The place was immaculate, and comfortably housed seven blokes. We spent a considerable amount of time in the games room - loved the table tennis and darts!

To top it off, Deborah was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We'll definitely be booking again next year.
