Beautiful retro cottageAnthony Polinelli - 1st June 2021
The Shack is everything you need it to be; stunning beach front location; 10 mins drive to Hyams, Vincentia and Huskisson and wonderfully retro. The property itself is three bedrooms but it is not a sprawling mansion. The Shack is well equipped with everything we needed including reverse cycle AC, Miele washer dryer and dishwasher. The interior is furnished in a mid century modern style with coastal accents, while the outside is still the original 1950s cottage. Loved it!
Very nice place to enjoy our holiday
Excellent cozy house with an amazing view and location . Very good for a chill weekend , will return again :)
Great house in a great location. Near everything but feels a lot more peaceful than busy huskisson.
Lovely, comfortable place...best enjoyed by one couple and kids, otherwise can be a bit cosy. Fabulous view and easy access to the water and terrific park for little ones!
I loved this place so much! It was so cute and cosy and it had the most amazing view. The amenities in the house were so good and it was very easy to find the location. I would stay again! :)
So greatStevie Hefferan - 8th February 2021
I loved everything about this property! Would highly recommend :)
Great location , peaceful , enjoyed our stayFelicia Mavro - 3rd February 2021
The Shack is lovely and has amenities one needs for a getaway. Everything is in working order but if I May say there are many dead insects stuck on the walls that reall y should not be there , a few Cobb webs here and there. A paint job to freshen the shack , there are evident leak marks on ceilings. Hence musty smell inside the house . The toppers of sun beds outside are old and too filthy to lie on .
Beautiful view from the terrace and birds singing next to you. A lot of greenery around the house, so relaxing. Outdoor shower is great. A lot of parking behind the house in the private back yard. The place is smaller than it looks in photos, but ok if you spend your daytime out. Two bedrooms have only short bunk beds, not suitable for tall adults. Kitchen well equipped with a capsule coffee machine. Watch out for musquitos, we couldn't keep them away with any repellents.
BEAT VIEEEEW! We had a beautiful stay over Christmas. My small children loved all the toys, books and dvds that are provided. We even had a few kangaroo visitors in the backyard, which was the most exciting part of our stay. The basin walk is nice and easy my 2 year old walked 90% of it. The water is nice and calm but unfortunately it had a lot of jellyfish but no one else seemed to be bothered by them.
Beautiful place would recommend 100%
Good place for a weekend getaway
Great little houseKathryn Gray - 19th November 2020
The house was well equipped and it made our stay very enjoyable. Nothing extra was required. We would like to return for two weeks in February, pending tariffs at that time. Kath
This well deserved extra long weekend getaway with close friends exceeded all of our expectations! Even the unfavourable weather could not dampen our spirits. Thank you so much for allowing us to unwind amongst the bush birds and the beautiful view of the bay. Quaint, cosy and incredibly comfortable. Only suggestion, a clear list of what to bring... we came well and truly over prepared however didn’t think to bring garbage bags. Thank you again and we look forward to visiting Jervis Bay and your properties again soon.
Such a lovely place to stay!
Expectation vs. reality
Great holiday houseDianne - 21st January 2019
We had a great time in the The Shack, very relaxing, with all you need. Wonderfully close to the water for the boys to enjoy and to the walking track around the lake.
Great locationSimon24 - 29th October 2018
We found this property to be all most perfect. Place was clean when we arrived. Had everything we needed for our long weekend. Location was great as we had a boat and slipway was only a 400m away. Plenty of parking, although it is a bit tough backing a boat onto the property. Would we book again, yes definitely.

Great PlaceTomsjulie - 2nd September 2015
Stayed for 3 overnights and we all enjoyed our time in there, nicely renovated so very modern inside although still has that nice old beach shack feel externally, has amazing views over the bay, this is a really kids- friendly place, my daughter got never bored because of many DVDs, books, games and toys already stored in the house
