The Shackeau is a beautiful romantic waterfront holiday shack on the water's edge with stunning views. Enjoy a romantic break in one of the most amazing location any where or a fun relaxing time with the family. Dolphins and giant stingrays often swim close by right in front. You can even get a feed of muscles from the rocks.

With a good cast you can catch flat head from the deck! A private path leads directly to the rocks and beach.

Now featuring an outdoor hot tub with a spectacular outlook over Southport's beautiful bay...the Shackeau is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway!

The beach community of Southport is a rustic laid back shack town with a large jetty where the fisherman bring their crayfish and abalone catches ashore. The safe boat ramp offers access to the beautiful bay and the Lune River inlet.

The Shackeau is 2 bedroom self contained house with a large deck and an outdoor entertaining area right on the water's edge with an open fire and BBQ. The main bedroom has a queen size bed with luxurious latex mattress while the second bedroom offers a unique queen size bunk bed for the kids or additional couple to enjoy.

The Shackeau offers the tranquility of no TV, no DVD, no computer games and yes minimal phone reception. We apologise in advance that unfortunately you will still probably get a little phone reception if you stand on one leg in the corner of the shack and hold a glass of fine sparkling Tasmanian wine in the other hand.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with essential provisions. The bathroom has a bath with beautiful views across the water. There is a cosy wood fire ideal to snuggle up and relax.

The local area offers so may options including boating, beach walks, the Ida Bay railway, Wilderness Walks, Hastings Caves, Lune River Thermal Pools, Tahune Airwalk and the numerous walks in the World Heritage Area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing seaside getaway We stayed with another couple and it was a beautiful house with amazing views! Very modern and with 3 x bathrooms it made they stay feel very private even with another couple staying! Highly recommend! Only downfall is no bath or spa due to rain tanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top property Our time spent at The Shackeau was thoroughly enjoyable. Key points were the absolutely frontal beach location and extraordinary views - both sunrise and sunset over Penguin island. Careful interior design, great music selection via ipod, didn't miss TV. Minor downside was absence of washing machine. Would we go back ?....indeed yes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottage perfect postiton An incredible place to stay, the cottage is so close to the waterline that we woke each morning feeling like we were part of the ocean, with amazing views of the surrounding coastline. A very peaceful couple of days. I wish I had read the description a little better as I wasn't aware of the isolation and therefore the need to be more self sufficient and take groceries. A perfect place for a quiet couple of days away from the busyness of life.
