The Shackeau is a beautiful romantic waterfront holiday shack on the water's edge with stunning views. Enjoy a romantic break in one of the most amazing location any where or a fun relaxing time with the family. Dolphins and giant stingrays often swim close by right in front. You can even get a feed of mussels from the rocks.
With a good cast you can catch flat head from the deck! A private path leads directly to the rocks and beach.
The beach community of Southport is a rustic laid back shack town with a large jetty where the fisherman bring their crayfish and abalone catches ashore. The safe boat ramp offers access to the beautiful bay and the Lune River inlet.
The Shackeau is 2 bedroom self contained house with a large deck and an outdoor entertaining area right on the water's edge with an open fire and BBQ. Each bedroom features a queen size bed, making this the perfect escape for 2-4 people.
The Shackeau offers the tranquility of no TV, no DVD, no computer games and yes minimal phone reception. We apologise in advance that unfortunately you will still probably get a little phone reception if you stand on one leg in the corner of the shack and hold a glass of fine sparkling Tasmanian wine in the other hand.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with essential provisions. The bathroom has a bath with beautiful views across the water. There is a cosy wood fire ideal to snuggle up and relax.
The local area offers so may options including boating, beach walks, the Ida Bay railway, Wilderness Walks, Hastings Caves, Lune River Thermal Pools, Tahune Airwalk and the numerous walks in the World Heritage Area.
The Shackeau is a unique property with stunning views over Southport's Bay. Until recently it has also featured a clifftop Hot Tub- unfortunately a land slippage has made this unsafe for use and we are no longer able to allow use of the spa. Please take this into account when considering your choice of accommodation.
