Where will I be?
The Black Shack is in the best location in Hyams Beach. It is merely metres from the sand, with private access from the garden. Spend the evening listening to the waves, and wake each morning to an incredible sunrise over Jervis Bay. Enjoy a gentle stroll along the beach and visit the famous Hyams Beach Cafe which is only a short walk up the road.
Why choose Black Shack?
Be the envy of everyone by having stayed in Hyams' most exclusive beach shack. Fashion designer Nicola Waite has designed this beautiful minimalist beach retreat with her dramatic creative signature. The Black Shack, although right in the centre of Hyams Beach, has a sense of total privacy, allowing the most relaxing of holidays.
How is the property laid out?
The Black Shack is completely open plan and the design elements flow through into each of the clearly defined areas. The interior space has lime-washed wooden floors and stylised furnishings complimentary to the black interior throughout. The well equipped kitchen has an electric oven, ceramic cooktop, integrated dishwasher and bar fridge with freezer. The open screened master bedroom has a queen bed styled with luxury linen. The small second bedroom with a double bed is accessed via the master or, for greater privacy, from one of the rear decks. The walk-in wet room has floor to ceiling concrete tiles and complimentary Aesop toiletries are provided for guest use, making the Black Shack a truly opulent experience. There is an external European style laundry on the side of the front deck with both washing machine and clothes dryer.
Wi-Fi, internet, Netflix or pay TV- will I have it?
The Black Shack has both Wi-Fi and Chromecast has been attached to the TV.
What about outdoors?
An elevated series of rear decks provide breath-taking views of Point Perpendicular, Bowen Island and the glistening waters of Jervis Bay. The large garden is part gravel and part lush lawn. Selective use of screens, border trees and the surrounding forest create a sense of complete privacy. A hot/cold outdoor shower is well positioned beside the back decks.
Keeping warm or keeping cool?
The Black Shack has reverse cycle air-conditioning in the main space, comfortably heating or cooling the entire home. There is also a ceiling fan in the master bedroom.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
Luxurious pure cotton and linen sheets, towels and luxury Aesop bathroom toiletries are provided at the Black Shack. Please bring your own beach towels however.
Parking for cars, boats etc?
Off street parking for up to 2 cars is provided. Parking is restricted to the gravel driveway, and there is to be no parking on the grass.
Is my dog or cat also welcome to stay?
Sorry, the Black Shack is not pet friendly.
What are the minimum stay rules?
There is a minimum two night stay for all bookings, which changes to three nights on long weekends, four nights at Easter and seven night blocks during peak season. Peak season runs from mid-December to the end of the Australia Day long weekend in January.
Are there any special Peak Season rules?

Great experienceBarbara Tonkin - 9th April 2021
What a wonderful location. It is so special to wake up and see the ocean from every room. This is a very clean and comfortable house with lovely amenities. So happy there was a coffee machine!. Thank you for the water and wine on arrival. We will happily return again.

Our stay at black shackJackson Tozer - 1st March 2021
We had an amazing stay at Hyams and we were overly impressed with the black shack accommodation. Beautiful well done clean place and the location couldn't be any better we absolutely loved it.
Superb locationCharles Anderson - 28th January 2021
We enjoyed our short stay at the Black Shack, everything worked well, good showers with strong water pressure both inside and out, a comfortable bed and Netflix on TV, though strangely no ABC. The location is superb just a short walk from the garden to the beach. Two tips for future renters, the air con needs to be switched on, on the bottom of the unit, and the Salty Crab, (next to the mega Woolworths, a 10 minute drive), is an exceptional take-out for up-market Fish and Chips.
Perfect location. Small and elegant. Definitely only for 2 guests. Hide away and enjoy nature. A wonderful holiday.
Perfect locationAlex Bowen - 10th January 2021
Hi, we had a great stay. The location is marvellous by you cannot get any closer to the best part of the beach. The shack is definitely only for two people. A third would be cramped. Lovely views from the deck and the constant sound of the ocean. Decor is simple and on theme. The only shortcoming with the property was having a mini bar fridge meant regular trips out of Hyam’s as we stayed for a week and could not keep food fresh and drinks cold. Apart from that 10/10.
Fantastic stay, literally right on beach. Stylish and modern, everything you need. Full kitchen and bbq to settle in and recommend do own food as there isn’t much else but the cafe which was very busy and slow. Property is awesome, would return.
My partner and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the ‘little black shack’. It’s location is perfect, the beach at your doorstep and a great coffee/breakfast within 2 minutes walk. The place itself is beautifully designed, and a bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch! Would highly recommend
The black shack makes for a perfect relaxing getaway.
Everyone who walks by The Black Shack can’t help but stare as it really is a beautiful home in a quite stunning location. We were lulled to sleep both nights by the sound of the sea and loved hearing and seeing the many birds in the surrounding trees. The private gate to the beach is special. The back deck is a wonderful place to sit and contemplate - you never tire of the view. It’s a lovely compact space that worked really well for our family of three. The beds were extremely comfortable, the towels big and soft and it just felt very luxe. Although we had a lot of rain over the weekend, we felt happily tucked away from the elements. The bottle of wine and mineral water was a nice welcome. We would definitely come again.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The shack is beautiful and the location perfect next to the beach surrounded by trees. We loved it here.

A wonderful,compact property. We loved the design and attention to detail. Position is second to none. The Black Shack is about 100 steps to the waters edge, but private and serene.
