Perfect for a Girls Weekend AwayRosemary P - 26th November 2023
The Shack is great for a friends weekend away. Great views out to the ocean and beach make sitting on the balcony with a cuppa just delightful. The house has all you need with the kitchen well equiped. A short walk to the shops for a coffee and a shop make it tick all the boxes.

Brilliant Long weekendChris Sutton - 15th August 2023
Wonderful house for a long weekend - beautifully presented with an amazing deck/view and close to shops. But be careful going down the drive in a big car - it's narrow !!!.
The Werri ShackAlexandra - 30th May 2023
This property was absolutely gorgeous! The decor of the house is warm and inviting. The views are absolutely amazing! With an added bonus of close proximity to the local beach and the shops. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay! ✨
Fantastic placePaul - 24th May 2023
Thank you so much. It was our first time in a while that we had a get away with our boys. We had a wedding at the Mercure and it was perfect for our stay. The place was clean and my wife was so amazed at all the utensils, plates, just kitchen thing’s available. It had the best view and the whole place was more than expected. Thank you so much.
WOW - What an amazing location!!! CanAlex Attfield - 24th March 2023
I recently stayed at the Werri Shack and from the moment I walked through the front door, I was so impressed! Greeted by an amazing ocean view, you instantly relax from the moment you arrive. Its a 3 minute walk down to the beach or the shops. The beds are super super comfy and plenty of spots to find your little place if you want some me time! CANT WAIT TO GET BACK THERE AGAIN!
Molto BeneSteph - 26th November 2022
Thanks for sharing your beautiful view with the wider world! Dining on your deck, overlooking the northern aspect of Werri Beach & Rose Valley was just magic. The property was so well stocked with everything guests need to ensure they enjoy a pleasant stay. Thanks again for hosting us. We will be back.

Midweek coastal escapeZafirea Fatouros - 8th October 2022
Our family of four & our beloved dog had a wonderful midweek getaway at The Werri Shack. From the moment we opened the front door the house welcomed us in. Lots of space for everyone to sit back, relax & take in the gorgeous view of Werri beach & the coastal headlands. Walking distance to town for all that we needed. We loved it & can’t wait head back!
Wonderful beach homeClaire Macleod - 30th September 2022
A lovely home with an awesome view of the ocean and a fantastic large deck to relax. The home itself is well equipped, cosy and has comfy beds as well as a great games room. What’s more, it is in a great location less than 10 mins to both the beach and main shopping & cafe strip plus its dog friendly. Highly recommend
Lovely house, great viewVicki - 24th July 2022

My family really relaxed here. Had everything we needed
A gorgeous place in an excellent location.leanne mitchell - 7th December 2021
A stones throw from the café strip and a short walk down to the beach, this is a prime location. Gorgeous interiors, quality beds and linen, and all the extra kitchen appliances make this a very comfortable place to stay. And with its enormous covered deck (with heating) and games aplenty, we were kept fully entertained on our wet weekend away. We look forward to a return visit in better weather.
Absolutely amazing!!Shane Stanley - 7th November 2021
My family and I wanted to take our mother away for an amazing and chilled belated birthday weekend away and the Werri Shack sure did deliver. The house itself is beautifully laid out, functional and great for kids with the games room downstairs and plenty of backyard space. The house is located close to the beach and the view from the upper deck is amazing. We highly recommend the Werri Shack to anyone looking for a chilled weekend away with the family or a group of friends.
More than a shackSimone Keogh - 24th June 2021
From the moment we entered The Werri Shack we were in holiday mode. Straight to the veranda to gaze out at the ocean, with the timing being right saw our first whale of the season. The home is obviously very well maintained and cared for, styled by a professional - artistically and practically. Extremely comfy beds, plenty of room with a well appointed kitchen where you can make your coffee whilst checking the surf. Having the table tennis was a plus for our family too. We’ll be back for sure
FantasticKaren Aldridge - 7th June 2021
We stayed here for a long weekend and it was fantastic. The house was great, spacious, light and bright and had everything that you could need for a weekend away. Location was fantastic as well. Within walking distance to the beach, the park and the beautiful town/restaurants. Heating was great and it was lovely to have the gas heater for out on the balcony allowing us to enjoy the outdoor space. The yard was also fantastic and our dog loved the neightbours' dog who was very friendly.
Wonderful house complete with whale watching from the deckJackie Clifford - 4th June 2021
This house was fantastic. It was very clean and comfortable, and it was wonderful watching whales and the pumping surf from the deck. The neighbour and his dog were great - they came out when we first got there just to make sure our dogs would get along (since the dogs would be able to see each other through the fence separating the two backyards). Looking forward to booking my next stay at the Werri Shack!
The home will not disappoint! Beautiful views and a great house for relaxing with family or friends. Also just a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops! Highly recommended!
Great location, super family friendly, great view, super beachy vibes, comfy beds, even the day beds downstairs that convert to beds are super comfy! Fully equipped kitchen means you don’t have to go out for food, but is a 5 min easy walk if you want to go out!
Family holidayRosalind Munro - 4th January 2021
Very comfortable, clean, some windows hard to open (hence our problem in bedroom downstairs). Kitchen well equipped, problem with upstairs TV getting free to air and Netflix, a few extra bath towels recommended, would give a 5 star if driveway/parking had been easier but overall we enjoyed our family Xmas very much.
We love this houseJosie MacRae - 22nd November 2020
We’ve stayed here twice. The deck is huge and wonderful for relaxing. The style of the house is gorgeous, but it’s not so perfect you can’t relax. Downstairs is great to give older kids their own space. And it’s so sensible that a few basic supplies are already there. Nothing worse than only being left one dishwasher tablet and no salt and pepper!
The Werri Shack was a lovely home for a large group. It is just like the photos and is wonderfully decorated. The kitchen provided many amenities that were very useful, and many cleaning supplies were provided. The only downside of this house, is the lack of sound proofing. From the rooms downstairs, every noise made upstairs can be heard. Many of us found it very difficult to sleep as even walking at a normal pace and not thumping, can be heard very clearly. Otherwise we had a lovely time here, and particularly enjoyed the beautiful view of the beach from the top deck. Would stay again.
Place was really clean, beautifully styled with all the little touches thought of. Amazing location and walking distance to beach and shops. The deck was a stand out and our dog loved the backyard!
Loved itGerard Russell - 2nd October 2020
Great space, perfect location. We hope to be back one day soon.
We stayed for 2 night with our friends and dogs and we all enjoyed the property. Plenty of room for everyone and very close to the town centre, beach and coastal walk (all walking distance).

Would Love To Visit Again!eholm - 30th December 2019
Amazing place to holiday with teenagers and dogs. The downstairs area [is the] perfect place for the kids to have their own space. Brilliantly equipped kitchen as well - made cooking etc a pleasure. Would love to visit again!
Perfect for teenagersEmma - 14th December 2019
Bought three teenage boys down for a four night stay during the first week of Christmas school holidays to get them away from technology etc. The set up of the place is amazing. The boys spent most of their relaxation time playing table tennis, playing footy in the yard or relaxing in the rumpus room. Also had two dogs in tow - the place is great for them as well. The yard is secure and the balcony a great spot for them to snooze in the sun. The place is also well suited for the adults. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are ample spots to sit and get into a good book. Overall highly recommended.
Perfect Location!Pamela - 8th November 2019
This was such a pleasant surprise for myself, partner and our dog. The property is exceptionally well-maintained, with good quality linen and bathroom towels. The entire home is immaculate and offers extensive views over Werri Beach. We loved every minute of our 5 day stay here. We immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. The beach, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. Thank you so much - we will be back soon!

Casual, relaxed beatifully appointed beach house!Jason - 26th February 2019
As you look at the photos, the shack looks wonderful. They do not do it justice however. The view is vastly superior and the rooms are generously large. The interior design of the shack is modern, well thought out and very relaxed. There is everything you need in this one and a distinct attention to detail. A short walk to the beach and halfway up the hill to the high street. In a very quiet street, so typically Australian and relaxed. We will certainly grab this one again when returning to see family in Gerringong. High recommend it for its ease of check-in process, style, relaxed and comfortable interiors, the view and proximity to both the High Street and the beach! Well done and thank you.
