Newly Renovated Waterfront Gem with million dollar views and private jetty! The Shack (as we like to call it) has been recently renovated for the perfect holiday or weekend getaway for couples, group of friends and families. Once you stay I’m sure you’ll agree this is an amazing find and a truly unique experience.

This property has it all; go fishing or swimming off your own private jetty, play Frisbee on the lawn, sunbake on the huge sundrenched deck, read a book in the hammock, cook what you catch on the outdoor Tepanyaki grill then sip a cocktail whilst you watch the sunset over the water. Bliss.

The house is equipped with everything you need such as; modern comfortable furniture, Gas Heating, dishwasher, entertaining areas for up to 8 people (both indoor and out), 3 large bedrooms with comfy beds (1 room has a king), 55 inch LED TV, Movie Library, Board games, Nintendo Wii, BBQ plus many extra you don’t normally find other holiday rental.

The Shack is perfectly placed for whatever you want to do. For those of you that what to get out and about there is plenty around you; Beaches, Beaches, Beaches; Umina Beach is less than 5 mins drive and is a stunning dog friendly surf beach. Within 15 mins you’ll find; Patonga, Kilcare, McMasters, Copacabana and Pearl Beach so you’ll have plenty to choose from.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby and you’ll find a very informative book of the house on arrival with our recommendations, however, if you haven’t been Rojo Rocket we think it’s a must. If live music is your thing then check out Live at Lizottes, which has live music every night, and do dinner and show packages.

For the nature lover you are right on the edge of Bouddi National Park, home to some stunning walks. In fact one of the walks (flannel flower walk) starts just down the street and will take you to the picturesque Hardy’s Bay – a perfect breakfast or lunch destination.

If fishing is your thing we can guarantee you’ll love the shack. Brisbane waters is full of sea life and is a local fishing spot. Fish right of the jetty at any time of day or if you have your own boat you are welcome to bring it and enjoy the deep water right out front.

All of this is only 75 minutes drive from Sydney CBD and less from the Northern suburbs. Oh and BTW we are a beautiful 20 minute ferry ride to Palm Beach which goes regularly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the location and the view We had a great family weekend. The view and location were absolutely fantastic. The House is quite rustic, but everything works and is well equipped. Louisa was very helpful and accommodating - was happy to let us check out later and very prompt with responses to any questions. No complaints at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful and Tranquil with a Beautiful View We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Waterfront Playground. The Shack has a wonderful open plan that leads out onto a large deck that overlooks the water. It is full of natural light, especially in the afternoon as the sun is going down. The location is very central to explore the central coast. It has all the amenities you would want. Our host made it very easy for us to plan our time there and was very accommodating. We hope to stay again and highly recommend The Shack.
