We stayed over the Easter long weekend and loved it. Wonderful little shack at a wonderful location, fish were biting, crabs jumped in the nets, owners went above and beyond requirements including leaving us Easter eggs for a lovely welcome and ingredients for salt and pepper squid. Clean and tidy, plenty of kitchen utensils, easy instructions for amenities, our family came for a day trip to have an Easter BBQ with us and loved it also. We will definitely be back thanks for a lovely stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a really comfortable and nicely decorated place. Well equipped kitchen and outdoor shed with fishing gear we could use. Next door was very close and they have exclusive rights to boat ramp and jetty but we didn't have a boat so didn't bother us and Im sure he would let you use it if need be. Stunning location and views and pet friendly!

Great getaway for all ages

  • 5 of 5

This a true getaway experience - a true beach shack that was comfortable and very accommodating. We fished, crabbed, explored and relaxed. BBQ breakfast on the BBQ, a glass of wine under the stars beside the fire bucket, pulling in crabs and squid and enjoying family time without the TV. A great way to make memories and have a break from the hustle and bustle of life. The best part was that this was not a 'new' soul less Shack but rather a property with character and charm. High recommended!

Peaceful retreat - fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in this rustic retreat was very relaxing and peaceful. The views were fantastic. We enjoyed the walks on the Beach with the dog and having enough Room for the family in the shack. The area was out of the way and quiet with fishing at your doorstep. The facilities were clean and tidy and there were plenty of Cooking utensils/pots and pans for anything you needed. If you are wanting a relaxing getaway and like a spot of fishing then this is your place.
