Happyshack have been a resident of Robe for countless generations (the last four are still ambling around, the rest lie in peace in our beautiful, historic and fascinating Robe cemetery). We have current generations of family in the town running and working local businesses, on the land farming magnificent lamb and beef, in the vines at Mount Benson making succulent reds and crisp whites and on the boats bringing in their quota of fresh crayfish. We’ve spent our childhoods roaming Robes pristine beaches and investigating the rock pools, attending local sporting events, tobogganing down massive sand hills and camping in backyards. Our teenage years wandering aimlessly and parking on the beach with the music on as teenagers do, swimming, surfing, boarding, kayaking or just plain burning in the sun. We’ve driven down, on to Long Beach in the family car with a BBQ, esky and the kitchen sink and spent the entire day and most of the night there. We’ve skinny dipped in the seclusion of moon light and had camp fires on the beach and reminisced about the good old days. We’ve had the pleasure of waking to the sound of distant waves rhythmically crashing on the shore and to the idling of the diesel engine boats preparing to make the voyage to sea. Our explosive Christmas tourist season enables us to have so much more than your average country town of 1300 permanent residents. There are specialty clothes and home wares stores, beauty and massage services, divine cafes and restaurants, expansive pubs with live music and poker nights, and every second hand and antique store you can think of. We even have a specialist coffee brewer, ice cream parlour and our own double cinema. If you haven’t guessed by now, we love Robe, its home to us and we’d like to impart a little of that sense of belonging to you – our guests at Happyshack. Give us a call, if we don't know the answer, we definitely know someone who does.

We were a little disappointed as the photos showed a the 4th bedroom as a spare room with sofa bed & tv which we needed with 2 small children so they could have their own space & there was no high chair which made it difficult to get an 18 month old to eat, the main bedroom bed was only a double (4 adults all tall so queen was essential - stated as a queen), all these items were one of the reasons we selected the property.
We also found some oil spray in the pantry 7 years out of date suggest an audit of pantry items at least annually.
Very much enjoyed our stay! The house was lovely and and perfect for our needs.
The house was perfect! very neat and tidy, well equipped and plenty of space for the whole family. We very much enjoy being able to bring our dogs on your weekend away, and the location of the property was great!
Robe was fantastic as always, however the accommodation at Astrid house was not as advertised on Stayz. This was advertised as a brand new house and it certainly is not. The carpets are worn thin, stretched so the are raised and filthy!! Beds also not Queen as advertised and master bed sinks in the middle, second bed very comfortable. Outdoor living area is great and location fantastic. This could be a great house but please advertise accurately and replace the terrible carpet and master bed.
Thankyou again for your feedback on this website as well Andrea. Please note our response on the Happyshack website in reply.
Enjoyed our stay at Astrid house. The hot water service was broke on arrival but a plumber was quickly sorted out by the owners and problem solved well done for getting it sorted straight away!! As for being pet friendly the yard is not fenced off. Short stroll to the beach. Need to drive to get to main street in Robe. Enjoyed our stay overall. Place was clean.
Perfect Family Getaway
Robe is a great little town with a surprising amount to do and Astrid House was a fantastic base.
Only 5 minutes from Long Beach and a short drive into the town centre the house was clean spacious and had all the necessary mod cons. I loved the big wide driveway. The area was quiet and a huge garage housed a table tennis table and a dart board.
Good times and and we would recommend Astrid House to our friends.
Hi Michael, Happyshack is very glad that you had a wonderful stay at Astrid House over Easter. Thank you for taking the time to leave such great feedback. Kind regards,
Longbeach (Robe) accommodation
