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.

Clean tidy and spacious
Thanks Scott and thanks for leaving the house neat and tidy, much appreciated.
Awesome home stay with everything we needed and wanted.
Thanks for leaving a review Trish and thanks for spending time in Robe with Happyshack. See you again :)
A great holiday
Starfish Blue was perfect for what we needed, plenty of space, clean and comfortable with everything we required. A short walk to the shopping/dining precinct and central to our other points of interest up and down the coast.
Escape to the cool coast
Great layout & facilities, it might hold 10 people, but 2 or 3 live so comfortably that it's difficult envisaging anything else. Quiet & comfortable within walking distance of cafes & shops - the only place in SA not to reach 40 degrees on that day, but didn't matter really, because the aircon is so efficient that we hardly noticed. Love to return one day.
Spacious and quiet
Plenty of room for the family to relax with everything in Robe at close hand.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property Patricia. We trust you enjoyed your stay with Happyshack and your time in Robe and look forward to seeing you again soon.
