Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very peaceful and comfortable Very relaxing holiday destination - loved retro furnishings, beds very comfortable. Only suggestion as previous reviewer also mentioned that on very hot days Airconditioning would be an excellent addition. Closeness to water was big plus. Owner was available and very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very relaxing and great value! My family (2 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog), just had a lovely week at the shack. (2-9 Jan 2018) It is a really well equipped house with a great backyard boasting tranquil views of the water, and plenty of space for all. Simon was a great host, always contactable and had thought of everything. The retro decor was fun and authentic, and attention to detail regarding utensils and other equipment was really appreciated. The dog zip line was a great idea! We had perfect beach weather and spent most of our time at nearby Birubi beach (@ half hour away) as our kids like surf beaches. But for an afternoon dip with our dog, high tide at the bottom of the garden was perfect. We were also treated to 2 koalas visiting! The only thing missing, was air con ( for us spoilt people who have it at home) as we had a few very hot nights and the fans just weren't enough relief. Other than that, it was fab!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value We had a wonderful time at The Lemon Tree Shack. We loved the retro feel of the place but with today's mod cons. The outdoor patio area is great for lounging around. We had everything we needed for our stay, the place was clean and the beds were comfortable. You can see the water from the property and the waters edge is only a few minutes walk through a beautifully maintained reserve. We met many locals during our stay there and the neighbours were super friendly and gave us some very helpful local tips. On their advice we had dinner at The Poyers on the marina, the food,service and setting was outstanding . Simon, our host, was great to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. We are looking forward to returning to the shack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and Accomodating you can’t go wrong with the backyard view alone plus the house, it’s just perfect to all of us. we’ve got everything that we needed to enjoy our short holiday it’s all worth it. And Simon is very thoughtful he made sure that we enjoyed every bit of it. thank you Simon once again we can’t wait to come back hopefully next summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great location but needs a bit of tlc There are two main reasons for the 2-star rating: 1. We arrived and entered the ground floor (sleeping accommodations) first and were overwhelmed with a musty/damp smell. We immediately opened all the windows and turned on the fans, and left them running for the duration of our 4-day stay -- it got a little better, but it was still quite strong at the end of our stay and being in the ground floor area (and sleeping) was unpleasant. 2. The mattresses in one of the rooms were unusable. They were well past their "best before date" and extremely saggy and uncomfortable. The mattress in the room with the bunk beds was fine. The kids stayed on the bunk beds and didn't complain (I didn't personally try them out). It wasn't our idea of ideal to all bunk in the same room (i.e. the reason we do vacation rentals rather than hotels). The owners did offer to swap the better mattresses to the other room, but we didn't think it was worth the effort for a 4 day stay. Otherwise, the place was pleasant. The retro vibe was fun, if showing it's age (some peeling wall paper). The location was good -- very quiet and relaxing yet a close drive to the supermarket, a longish walk (with a 5 year old and 7 year old) along the path to a great playground a few local shops, and reasonable driving distance to some other local attractions. I will note that the staircase to get from the bedroom/bathroom/sunroom to the upstairs kitchen/dining/lounge is outside , with each area having outside doors that lock. I must admit it wasn't ideal (especially when it rained), but not a huge hassle either. Overall the place was very clean, with a few misses (e.g. some very dirty screens), the laundry was very handy, and the pantry items were nice to have. With a dehumidifier for the must/damp and a few new Ikea mattresses, this place would be a great little getaway and I would return. With a couple additional updates it would be a gem!
