Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holiday Shack We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Shack. Great casual-beach style, very clean & comfortable, in a quiet area close to the beach, good landscaping, and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Would stay again if in the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice place, pets welcome and back deck views This place was really nice. It's super close to the beach, and although there are no ocean views there are ocean sounds and you have a view from the back deck onto a nature reserve and so a really nice place to sit with your morning coffee or afternoon cider (or both!). It took us (we timed) 1 minute and 9 seconds to walk to the beach and because it's a little bit further along than the main strip, we had the entire beach to ourselves. One of our major deciding factors to stay here was that it is 'pets allowed' so our dog could come with us. There is no fencing around the property though (which we did ask so we did know when we finalised our booking!) so it is definitely more suited to chilled out dogs happy to sit by you on the deck rather than a boisterous explorer. All in all, would definitely stay again!
