5/5 Excellent

Cute and Cosy
A cute & cosy little beach shack with everything we needed for our stay. Kitchen is well appointed & the little bath was perfect for the kids. Friendly, quiet neighbourhood & short walk to the beach. We were surprised to find construction underway next door as we thought perhaps we should have been made aware of this upon booking. However, the tradies were apologetic & friendly and the noise really didn’t interfere that much with our stay. Overall, we really enjoyed The Surf Shack.

5/5 Excellent

We loved the Surf Shack!
A great spot for a quick family getaway from Sydney. We loved being so close to the beach - just a short walk up the road to Blacksmiths. Our morning beach walks were definitely a highlight. Newcastle is an easy 30 minute drive. Kids loved the go karting and Doughheads!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, pristine, wonderful location
My partner and I had a two night stay at this lovely surf shack and it was everything we could of wanted for a simple weekend away. The cleanliness of the house was impeccable. It was cozy and cute, yet had everything you needed. Half hour out of Newcastle, and a perfect distance to drive from Sydney for a weekend. Lots of beautiful spots we explored around the area. It is also perfect to enjoy in whatever weather condition, and a small 200m walk to Blacksmiths beach. We will for sure be back!
