Three bedroom house right across from the Balnarring Beach foreshore - just a short 100 metre walk along the creek reserve on you are on the sand. This simple but comfortable three bedroom house allows you to enjoy all the beach and wine/gourmet food region has to offer - in 1950's style worthy of any Mad Men episode.

With three bedrooms, two with queen size beds and the third with two bunks, the house can sleep up to 8 people. Realistically, it is comfortable for groups of 4-6.

The house has a good sized outdoor veranda with gas BBQ, outdoor lounge setting and teak setting, generous backyard which is fully fenced so safe for kids and dogs, as well as a laundry with washing machine. We also have a state of the art BBQ and wood fired pizza oven for the more gourmet inclined.

There are two bathrooms, one inside with a full bathroom outside, which is perfect for rinsing off after a swim at the beach.

Features include: Slow combustion heater, reverse cycle air conditioning and heating, microwave, stereo, flat screen LCD TV and DVD Player, washing machine and gas B.B.Q.

There are also plenty of toys for the kids, including a fort in the backyard, cubby house with slide, sandpit and massive springfree trampoline.

Tenants are required to supply their own linen (flat sheets, sheets, towels and pillow cases). Don't forget to bring a couple of tea towels as well.

Linen can be provided at an extra charge at $25 per bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely stay Just wanted to say thank you for our lovely stay. We had a great time and our daughter enjoyed the toys and books in the house, which was really well equipped. The house is very well located too and is in lovely surrounds. We even had a surprise visit from the dolphins whilst at the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an enjoyable weekend I just wanted to let you know we all had a very enjoyable weekend at Drapers Shack last weekend. My granddaughter loved the cubby house, slide and trampoline. At home we live in a unit with a courtyard so it was just paradise for my little dog to be free to run safely about in your big garden too. We were all very comfortable and will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hire I thoroughly enjoyed being able to hire such a house in such proximity to the beach and with all of the extra amenities available. Will definitely consider staying there again if I am in Balnarring once more and would recommend it to others (especially if they have kids) The fireplace was a particular highlight
