About the property

Waterfront Gem with million dollar views and private jetty!

Waterfront Gem with million dollar views and private jetty! The Shack (as we like to call it) is the perfect holiday or weekend getaway for couples, group of friends and families. Once you stay I’m sure you’ll agree this is an amazing find and a truly unique experience.

We've just added a new kitchen in July 2017. As much as we will miss the retro, this is a great new addition. Not yet pictured.

This property has it all; go fishing or swimming off your own private jetty, play Frisbee on the lawn, sunbake on the huge sundrenched deck, read a book in the hammock, cook what you catch on the outdoor Tepanyaki grill then sip a cocktail whilst you watch the sunset over the water. Bliss.

The house is equipped with everything you need such as; modern comfortable furniture, Gas Heating, Air Con, high speed NBN Internet / Wifi, dishwasher, entertaining areas for up to 8 people (both indoor and out), 3 large bedrooms with comfy beds (1 room has a king), 55 inch LED TV, Movie Library, Board games, Nintendo Wii, BBQ plus many extra you don’t normally find other holiday rental.

The Shack is perfectly placed for whatever you want to do. For those of you that what to get out and about there is plenty around you; Beaches, Beaches, Beaches; Umina Beach is less than 5 mins drive and is a stunning dog friendly surf beach. Within 15 mins you’ll find; Patonga, Kilcare, McMasters, Copacabana and Pearl Beach so you’ll have plenty to choose from.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby and you’ll find a book of the house on arrival with our recommendations.

For the nature lover you are right on the edge of Bouddi National Park, home to some stunning walks. In fact one of the walks (flannel flower walk) starts just down the street and will take you to the picturesque Hardy’s Bay – a perfect breakfast or lunch destination.

If fishing is your thing we can guarantee you’ll love the shack. Brisbane waters is full of sea life and is a local fishing spot. Fish right of the jetty at any time of day or if you have your own boat you are welcome to bring it and enjoy the deep water right out front.

All of this is only 75 minutes drive from Sydney CBD and less from the Northern suburbs. Oh and BTW we are a beautiful 20 minute ferry ride to Palm Beach which goes regularly.

Wish we could have stayed for longer!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family and had the most relaxing time! The place was perfect for us (+ our dog!) with all the amenities and appliances that one would need. The view was absolutely stunning and the private jetty was just a bonus! It was just what we needed to get away from the city. Louisa was very accomodating and easy to deal with as well.

The perfect city escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing time at this beautiful property.

Although it rained much of the time it only added to the relaxation looking out over the water. We fished, played on the lawn, played board games and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. Plenty of room for all and a great dog and family friendly property.

We'll be back!

The Shack was an extremely comfortable, clean and quiet getaway. The facilities in the home were outstanding and we loved our time there - we will be back! As soon as we walked out onto that balcony our stress levels subsided! My husband who is a keen fisherman even had some luck fishing.

We really enjoyed out stay at the Waterfront Playground, it sure was a great spot and the sun on the deck and in through the back windows in the middle of winter was lovely!

Beautiful scenic location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this retro inspired house. The house was warm & cosy with all the amenaties you would hope for in such a house. The deck was such a lovely place to sit for a drink at the end of the day even during these cool winter afternoons. The bed was comfortable, warm & with really lovely bedding. The only downside was the water tank could not fill the bath with enough hot water, but from what Louisa text me, this is something that she is looking into. All in all this is a really nice house, My husband, German Shepard & I really enjoyed our stay.
