Our shack is ideal for a wonderful family or couples getaway. The Sandlands Shack is suited to those who want a fantastic holiday in a "real shack" that has most of the mod cons.
Our shack has been freshened up, repainted, and has new floating floors throughout. It has been stylishly furnished with an eclectic mix of the old and the new, and maintains many original shack features.
All the beds and mattresses are all brand new and very comfy. The bunks comply with Australian Standards.
Light, bright and airy our shack has 2 very large bedrooms.
Bedroom 1 downstairs has a Queen size bed and 2 bunk beds, plus some very comfy arm chairs for relaxing with a good book.
Upstairs is a very large room with a Queen bed and 1 bunk bed. At night you can hear the roar of the ocean from this room.
The kitchen has retained many original features but has everything you need on holidays. A small oven, microwave and even a bread maker if you feel like baking. The lovely open plan kitchen has a gorgeous rustic dining table and funky new chairs and a little reading corner too.
There is a new hooded BBQ for cooking outdoors.
The grown ups might like to relax in the spacious kitchen/dining room whilst the kids watch a movie on the 42" TV in the lounge room on the large comfortable modular couch.
Great family fun times can be had by making use of the numerous board and card games at the shack.
The shack has a basic bathroom with shower over bath and new vanity and mirror.
The Sandlands Shack is ideally located in Goolwa South. A 4 minute walk will see you be at the River near the Goolwa Regatta Yatch Club, and a short stroll further the Goolwa Aquatics Club and famed Aqua cafe. You can wine and dine at these locations with stunning river views.
We love to walk along the river into the township of Goolwa, which takes about 10-15 minutes. You can enjoy the gorgeous wharf precinct, have a coffee or meal at "Hector's on the Wharf", a cleansing Ale at the unique "Steam Exchange Brewery", or perhaps a glass of vino at the "90 mile wine bar"..
A 25 minute walk or a 3 minute drive will have you at the amazing Goolwa Beach. Go cockling, surfing, body boarding, drive your 4WD onto the beach to the Murray Mouth, or relax with a delicious beverage or meal at the "Bombora Cafe" whilst watching the ocean roll in.
All amenities are very close to Sandlands Shack, with supermarkets just around the corner.
Goolwa township has a smorgasbord of dining options from the 3 hotels, to bakeries, cafes and restaurants you will find something to suit.
There is a wonderful array of shops, from beautiful homewares to antique and book stores, op-shops and fashion stores. You can spend hours browsing and discovering interesting things.
There are so many outdoor activities to do in Goolwa. From water sports to fishing, sailing, boating, kayaking, bird watching, walking, surfing. There is something for everyone.
Take a cruise on the paddle steamer "Oscar W" or spend a day on the "Spirit of the Coorong" vessel discovering the amazing Coorong.
