Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shabby Chic Shack!!! I have described this place as "Shacky" but tastefully decorated - I loved the feel of the "Shack" but also loved the furniture and style of the mirrors and fairy lights! The nights were cold - but we found blankets around the place so we slept cosy! The couch was so comfy to watch the "drawer full" of DVDs and our 3 yo loved the draws of toys which kept him very entertained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Place to relax and enjoy This modest shack on the outside is full of life and love on the in. A quiet location that offers both a romantic get away and for us the perfect family weekend. We sat back on the deck and enjoyed some wine and cheese while the kids ran, crabbed and fish the day away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Getaway! This was an adorable little cottage, fresh and homely with a definite touch of class. It was beachy but stylish, very clean and easy to keep clean. Such a quiet location, right behind the beach. We took advantage of the "shack's" crabbing gear and had a great time raking for blue swimmer crabs. It was pretty easy and then it was back to the shack to cook them up in the big pot by the BBQ. Probably would suggest bringing reef shoes or old sand shoes but it was heaps of fun. We went to bingo on Friday night and also fished from the town's jetty. We loved our stay and highly recommend Forty Eight!
