Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool Shack We only stayed for 2 nights but I didn't want to leave. So close to the beach and Aldinga Scrub. I instantly felt at home. Lots of dvd's to watch, books and mags to read plus board games and Space Invaders!!! If you like retro/vintage, you will enjoy staying at the Retro Shack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Fun Times We had a great time at the Retro Shack. The kids had fun with exploring the retro items and loved the Arcade Games and old board games. Great location being close to the beach and it was certainly cosy during the winter nights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beach shack, we loved it All our family enjoyed staying at the shack, with the 50 styling and the modern conveniences. Great location. Unfortunately we only stayed two enjoyable nights but we should of organized it to stay longer. Great responsive communication with owner. We loved our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to getaway by the beach What a great blast from the past. An amazing place that was very comfortable, in an amazing location with a funky feel. Loved the décor and atmosphere it created. Our 2 dogs loved playing around in the backyard and then taking a short walk to the beach for more running around. The shack was incredibly clean on arrival and well fitted with everything we needed to relax. We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time walking and riding around Aldinga Beach and Silver Sands during the day and coming back and chilling out at the shack each night. John, the owner, was so helpful and gave us great information about local breakfast places. We would recommend the Retro Shack to anyone looking for a great chillout cool getaway and looking forward to staying again soon. Thanks John!
