Play Shack®... Play or just kick back & relax!


Winners of Stayz Best Family Accommodation in Australia 2015/2016, we know that Play Shack® is the perfect Family Accommodation.

Play Shack are accommodation suppliers of several self contained holiday homes all located within a few minutes of each other in the Victorian High Country. Our accommodation is named from Play Shack 1 to Play Shack 5. Each property is independent of each other and are booked separately.

Play Shack 2 will provide the ultimate luxury outdoor getaway for your family and friends. If you are looking for that perfect family location, then look no further, you have just found it. Whether your family consists of young children, grown up children or no kids at all, this stunning rustic log cabin which collides with modern architecture, has it all. Enjoy skiing in winter, only 25 minutes drive from the property, and the rest of the year, enjoy endless activities that the region and Play Shack has to offer.

We cannot help but boast that the back door step leads directly to the Delatite River and wonderful outdoor scenery of the Victorian High Country. Trout jump out of the water to tease you, daily visits from kangaroos, birds and the occasional deer make the stay even more exciting. A wonderful location for professional and amateur photographers, nature lovers and anyone who just desires something very special.

The main accommodation comfortably caters for 3 families with 3 master king bedrooms, a bunk room for all the kids, and plenty of living and dining areas - all with beautifully designed interiors. Plus, there's an abundance of play equipment, both inside and outside.

Inside Play Shack, families are extremely spoilt. Two distinct wings of the house provide peace and quiet: on the ground floor there are beautiful vistas of the river and hills, while upstairs caters for fun and games for kids and adults in a spectacular games room with floor to ceiling windows and a rumpus area full of play equipment. Who can resist such classics as pool, ping pong, air hockey, foosball table and the classic Pacman arcade games console table. Our cupboards are full of games, books, toys, DVDs, and drawing items.

Outside there is so much space and privacy for the entire family. Adults can enjoy a quiet rest or drink by the river while the kids use the play equipment such as the trampoline, swing set and bikes, followed by a play in the river.

For families with toddlers, we make life a little easier when packing the car; no need to pack porta cot, high chair, booster seats, a step to reach the sink, child's loo seat and even a potty.

Please enjoy scrolling through our photos, all taken from the grounds of the property or received from our appreciative guests (except snow scenes). We are often asked "is it really as good as the pictures?" We are sorry to say it's not - it is even BETTER! Our guests tell us "it was beyond our expectations."

As family orientated accommodation, Play Shack will provide the ideal setting for many small and intimate special memories and occasions, which can made even more special by using our highly recommended chef Megan from Pure Taste. Megan will come to the property to either deliver or prepare and serve gourmet meal for all tastes. A special treat and very affordable. Why not go all the way & let David our local Helicopter pilot collect you from Play Shack's door step for an amazing adventure over Mt Buller and even a mountain top landing for memorable, life long family photos.

There is so much for all to do that, by choice, we have no TV reception. We would love our guests to take full advantage of the unique qualities of the property and outdoor pleasures at your door step. With this decision, we hope to encourage friends and family to enjoy each others company at this special setting. With the feedback we get from guests on their departure, we know we have achieved this. However, we do have two DVD players and a large library of DVDs for all ages for those who require a TV fix.

Play Shack 4 our rustic baby cabin, located on the same one acre of land - it too can be booked for flexibility and comfort. Consisting of a semi-self-contained two bedroom cabin newly constructed in 2014 from recycled materials, it is perfect for another family, the in laws, or a private Love Shack for a couple. This is priced in addition to the main 4 bedroom accommodation.

Due to our wonderful reputation with local businesses, all our guests receive the following specials when booking any of our accommodation: 10% discount on ski hire equipment First round of drinks free at the local pub & local restaurant, 5% discount on treatment at a fabulous Beauty Day Spa, & free gift.
