Time to pull out the sun hat & hit the beach!

Two bedroom beach house that has been updated but hasn't lost it's charm and seaside roots.

Air conditioning, brand new kitchen, polished boards, BBQ, and huge back yard. Sleeps four comfortably (1 queen bed, plus 2 king singles). Portacot and high chair also available on request.

The Shack is an easy stroll to the beach, lake, creek, National Park, and general store/cafe. Literally park the car and walk everywhere.

Cudmirrah is 200km south of Sydney and was recently rated as one of the top 5 escapes out of Sydney. Bordered by vast stretches of National Park, white sand and crystal clear water, it is undoubtedly one of the most pristine areas on the east coast of Australia.

Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, and wake up to find kangaroo's in the yard. It's not for everyone, it's off the beaten track, and it's very quiet ... but that is why we think it's still so nice.

What you can expect

This place offers guests something different. People come here to get away from day to day life and indulge in all the simple things. A break that conjures up the weighty memories of traditional Australian family, Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays over the last 60 years...

Long days playing in the sand and surf, scoffing too many fish and chips because they are so fresh (and just seem to taste so much better than they do at home), walking or riding to the beach in thongs with a towel slung over your shoulder, grabbing an icy pole from the local store, beach cricket, sand in your bathers and between your toes, zinc across your nose...

Holidays like this are getting hard to find. A tiny little township where everyone still says 'g'day', kids safely skate on the streets, there's not much more than a little corner store selling the 'essentials'. There's a Bowls Club and RSL nearby (each with a door-to-door courtesy bus) where you will find a great slap up parma, mixed grill or Chinese dinner, and a cute little cinema screening a couple of the latest flicks!

It's an ideal spot if you want to get away from it all and enjoy the charm of what the coast line used to be. It is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts ... go boating, swimming, diving, fishing, water-skiing, bike riding, canoeing, kayaking, bushwalking. Explore the creek, swim at Fishermans Rock, ramble around the rockpools at either end of the beach, have a picnic by the lake, watch dolphins play in the waves, whales migrating south with their young, surf until the sun goes down or just relax and enjoy the fresh sea air!

Jervis Bay is a spectacular National Marine Park just 20 minutes drive from the house and boasts having beaches with the whitest sand in the world. Drop into the villages of Huskisson, Callala and Hyams Beach or take a dolphin watch cruise around the bay.

Visit the historic towns of Berry, Milton, and Kangaroo Valley ... great food, antiques, wineries, and shops all nearby.

The Shack serves as a reminder that we don't need to have everything that glitters in life to find true happiness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay We recently enjoyed a three night stay at the Shack over the summer holidays. It had everything we needed for our young family, and the kangaroo that bounded into the yard added to the stay. We would definitely recommend The Shack, and would love to come back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely house The Shack was perfect - relaxed but high quality feel. Kangaroos in the garden, which topped off a wonderful say. Would definitely go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully renovated and maintained accomodation, positioned next to the exquisite Swan Lake and centrally located to most of the South Coast's most popular beaches and coastal towns - we absolutely loved our few days spent at The Shack and have already recommended the spot to close friends. We would definitely consider returning at some point in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We stayed at The Shack for a few days and had a lovely time. It was beautifully presented and was just right for my young family. The reserve just around the corner meant that it was very easy for us to take the kids for a swim and play in the sand. Lovely place that I would not hesitate recommending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We stayed at 'The Shack' for a girls weekend and had such a relaxing time! It has been furnished beautifully with all the mod cons and is in a great location for visiting Jervis Bay & the surrounds. Just down the road is a lake and we've never seen so many kangaroos on one street! We loved it and will definitely be back.
