The Mac Shak is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach holiday house which is perfect in summer to relax on the private and sheltered tree-top deck and in winter snuggling up to the cosy wood fired heater. The Mac Shak is an elevated pole house, located 10 minutes walk from the beach and adjoining the Bouddhi National Park at the rear. Our property suits families, with its casual and funky d├ęcor, and couples wanting a quiet and relaxed get-away in a bush setting.

Group adult singles bookings are welcome for a maximum 6 adults & ALL group members must be aged 25 yrs and over.

The Mac Shak welcomes pet stay enquiries and is complimented by the dog friendly beach zone located between Macmasters and Copacabana beaches. Please note our PET STAY INFORMATION at the end of the description and the small additional cleaning fee that applies for a pet stay.

Accommodation comprises 3 queen bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, with the third being funky loft accommodation. There are 2 bathrooms and a separate powder room which comprise a bath, 2 showers, 2 toilets and 2 vanities.

The Mac Shak is available all year round. Linen and bath towels are provided. You will just need to bring your beach towels and grab your food supplies at the Kincumber shopping centre on the way. There is, also, a local fish co-op on The Scenic Drive on the way into Macs. Little Beach, a small secluded cove in the National Park is a short bushwalk away and ideal for relaxing away from the crowd.

The Mac Shak has a large elevated covered deck overlooking the National Park with bird wildlife abundant. It is perfect for a BBQ with a cold beverage and outdoor dining.

The raw timber kitchen is fully equipped, including large oven and 5 burner gas cooktop, microwave, large upside down fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The lounge/dining is a large casual space with high raked ceiling and slow combustion fireplace. A large supply of dry firewood is available under the house. There is a 42 inch LCD TV with Foxtel sports package, DVD/CD player, Nintendo Wii, Bluetooth stereo and comfy sofas make for a relaxing stay when the weather is unfavourable. There are DVDs, books, magazines and games provided.

There is a beach shower to rinse off after a day at the beach, a laundry, outdoor furniture, hooded gas BBQ, off-street parking for 3 cars and a great grassed play area for the kids. This area will soon have an outdoor fire pit.

Activities await. Swim the patrolled Macmasters or Copacabana Beaches, splash with the toddlers in the Macs rock pool, have a paddle on Cochrone Lagoon, surf the perfect wave breaks on the Point or between the patrolled areas, choose a spot for beach fishing or have a wander through the National Park. Enjoy breakfast at Loo Loos or the beachside cafes at Macs and Copa, and enjoy a casual Thai dinner or just drinks at the Macs surf club cafe on Friday and Sunday evenings.

A portable wifi modem can be made available at a cost of $10 per GB. Please advise 2 weeks in advance if this is required, and what your estimated data usage would be.

Macmasters Beach has a designated dog-friendly beach zone and pet stay is very welcome. Properties at Macmasters Beach are generally not fenced, however, the Mac Shak is enclosed on the side boundaries with timber paling and dog-proof wire fencing. A front gate will be installed in mid-2016, which will fully enclose the property. Our pet stay guests pay a small fee towards additional cleaning ($50 flat fee).


Macmasters Beach is a comfortable 90 minute drive north of the Sydney CBD (outside peak hour). The Kincumber Shopping Village is on the way, which has a Coles supermarket, green grocer, butcher, baker and seafood shop.

The Bouddhi National Park is at your doorstep and further along the peninsula is Killcare Beach and Hardy's Bay (a 15 minute drive) offering boating and boat hire facilities. Avoca and Terrigal beaches and Erina Fair Shopping Centre are a 15 mins drive to the north.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for both family and dog We had an enjoyable, relaxing week staying at this property. Very clean and comfortable. Nice backyard for the kids to play in and securely fenced for the dog. We enjoyed sitting out on the back balcony, which looks out to a reserve, offering a tranquil setting and loads of birdlife. Fully equipped kitchen. A 3 min drive to MacMasters, and 10 mins to Killcare or Avoca beaches, which we also explored. A perfect place for the dog, with most beaches having off-leash areas and plenty of local dogs wanting to make friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bush setting close to everything I stayed seven nights in this lovely property to explore the area. The house is genuinely fully equipped. And the owner is very welcoming. Fantastic holiday beds and bedding. Fantastic deck with a bbq. The bush setting high above MacMasters is quite lovely and perfect if you have a dog. The walk is lively or an easy car run to the beach - 3 minutes. Daily bird fiesta - kookaburras, King parrots, currawaongs etc. The frog chorus from the pond is great. I will surely be back.
