Nice place, communicative host, loved the books to read. Make sure you have telstra network if you want reception! Comfortable bed. Bathroom is on the small side but it is definitely a charming little shack. A stones throw from the beach!

Thank you Claire. Not everyone gets cake and candles, typically just some biscuits, but it is nice to do something special every now and then. Thank you for looking after my Shack so well. Henk
