Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stay 'loved our stay back in time at the retro shack. The decor was groovy and most happy there was a big screen tv! The location was great with a short stroll to a great cafe and restaurant. We will be back for sure'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We found the Retro Shack to be very comfortable and homely with everything included for a very relaxing stay. It is centrally located to many tourist areas and is very close to the esplanade where we found ourselves walking twice a day. We certainly will be going back there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants something affordable and family friendly.
