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.

Good location, clean house and enjoyed our stay in Robe
Nice location near the coastal walking tail with ocean view
Practical and clean, meeting all our needs
Thank you Neryl for your lovely review. Thank you also for leaving our property in such great condition and treating it so well. We hope you had a relaxing stay and enjoyed Robe. See you next time.
Great position being so close to the ocean the view is amazing.
Great location close to the marina and scenic walking tracks along the coast only meters away. Good front and backyard, no fencing to contain pets and we did have a few dogs venture into backyard, cooking facilities, pots pans toaster etc need upgrading and washing machine also needs replacing. Bbq was spotless, house was very comfortable to relax in and very clean, showers toilets were well maintained and plenty of hot water for shower time after a day at the beach. All in all a lovely place to stay just a few minor improvements would have made it a tad more comfortable at meal times.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We have forwarded your improvements direct to the owners. Thank you for commenting on our standard of cleaning, we are very particular about how our properties are presented.
Best regards and hope to see you again soon

Lovely beach getaway!
Great family beach house with beautiful view of the ocean. Perfect to sit back and daydream whilst sipping some wine after a day of coastal walks, surfing and a spot of fishing. Yummy food and wine in Robe too! Would love to visit place again.
Thanks for posting Cathy and thanks for leaving Glass Beach in such tip top condition. We hope you travelled home safe and look forward to hosting you at a Happyshack property again in the future.
I would move in tomorrow
Love this place , feels like home .
Close to the beach , great walks and pooch loves the place to .
Nothing like sitting in the window , drinking a wine and losing at scrabble .
Will be back again soon
Loosing at Scrabble?! You might need more wine ;)
Thanks again Taylor, we'll see you again soon, thanks for staying with us in Robe.
Probably could do with a flooring upgrade. washing machine makes a lot of noise.
Thank you for your feedback.
I will pass this on to the owner as a suggestion for upgrading their house and for maintenance to the appliances.
