“Beautiful location, a must”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

I stayed in the shack with 2 friends, we enjoyed the room, even though it is small of course it was perfect for a camping out style experience. The bathroom is a bit of a pain, being that you have to trudge past the restaurant and in view of the beach goers. However I love sleeping right on the beachside and waking up and looking outside to the sea was priceless. The restaurant was good and found the menu ok price wise, wine good and staff not over the top, but wouldn't hurt them to smile more even tho it might me a long day etc. We arrived late and even though we made arrangements to collect the key in the safety box it wasn't there as promised and we had to wait for someone to show up with the key about 15mins later. I would recommend the shacks for those looking for a relaxed and basic time away from everything. Personally I think you could bring a small esky for the weekend and have beer and wine at sunset and then go and eat at the restaurant and never venture much further..after all the trek back up the stairs is hard work and the shacks don't come with any car space. We parked behind the pub up the top and it was free and seemed trouble free. Tesco near by for supplies.

Room Tip: All the shacks the same

Just back from a wonderful weekend staying in one of the surf shacks. They were situated a couple of metres from the beach and the views were stunning. The accomodation was spotless and there were even 4 chairs and a table to use outside. Although there's no electricity in the shack or wash basin or toilet, the way to the shower block/toilet was well lit at night and only a short distance away. Security was excellent and the security guard was very keen to ensure we weren't troubled by any of the other occupants. Millie in reception was great and very helpful. The only negative was that there's no shaver point in the shower block, so you need to take an adaptor. Apart from that, everything was perfect - including the restaurant 5 metres behind us (Kahuna - see separate review). All in all, a great weekend was had by all and I can't recommend the shacks highly enough for groups who want a great stay in a perfect location (you even get to work off some of the excess calories climbing the stairs back to the main road!). We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had shack 1 which was nearest the shower block.
