Great Family Beach Shack

5 of 5
What a great few nights we have spent at Karin's beautiful beach shack. Karin was an excellent host and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. The place was more than perfect size for our little tribe of us and the two kids. A real surf beach house feel that's also very clean and quite comfortable. The back yard has two large grassed areas that were perfect for a kick of soccer with the kids and there is plenty of comfortable seating as well as a bbq if you please. The location was amazing, it couldn't have been any easier with a short walk to all the shops. I highly recommend Bell St Fish Shop for some yummy fish n chips. The beach is also a short walk away in both directions. So close you can hear it when you are getting ready for some sleep! Thanks so much Karin
