Shells Cottage is a premium front row holiday home shack and one of the few front houses in Moore River available for rent. With neighbours only on one side and the adjoining nature reserve, it boasts magnificent, unobstructed views out across the foreshore, mouth of the Moore River Estuary and the Indian Ocean beyond. If a relaxing beach retreat is calling, Shells Cottage will deliver.
Shells Cottage is a quintessential, relaxed Moore River beach house that can accommodate more guests than most of the smaller beach shacks in Moore River, none the less it's still a beach shack built in the 50's and not a luxury property. Our special cottage is a place where you can take off your shoes and enjoy a slower pace of life. We absolutely love it and we hope you'll feel at home as well.
Accommodating large family gatherings or intimate groups, your vacation will sure to be one to remember.

- All your food, drinks and supplies - We suggest you buy all that you'll need before coming to Moore River. We do have two small shops in town that carry some things but they don't have a wide variety of products.
Being that Moore River is surrounded by bush, the houses do get field mice, spiders, ants and bugs, largely because the houses aren't permanently occupied. Everyone does their best to control them but it's a fact of life living in such a beautiful spot.
