The Shack is the ideal retreat that is close to everything, yet away from it all. A nice half way stop, if going to Sydney, Brisbane / Byron Bay. 3 minutes from the Pacific Highway, A1 / M1 . Stop a night or two and relax on the 5 secluded acres, with just the wildlife. The Shack is seperate, fully self contained and set back off the road. Only a 10 minute drive to Port Macquarie CBD, The Glass House, Westport Park and only a 6 minute drive to Wauchope. A quiet relaxing stop after a long drive.

The space
The shack is seperate, private, fully self contained and isolated . Set off the main road and away from the main house, it is home away from home. Complete with a very comfortable Queen bed, the Shack has its own shower, toilet and the kitchenette features a full size fridge, sink, kettle, toaster, microwave, cutlery, plates, cups and glasses. There is a full size ironing board, iron, GHD hairdryer and GHD straightener. There is a smoke detector and a carbon monoxide detector as well as a fire extinguisher for your safety.
Free fixed wireless NBN is available. A digital T.V together with hundreds of movies and games is also available. There is a heater to keep you warm and an air conditioner to keep you cool !! Sit out in the fully enclosed 5m x 5m under cover lounge area for you and your pet to further relax.


The in out driveway is horseshoe shaped and is blue steel gravel. Please take care if arriving by motorcycle! The best way to enter the grounds is by the post box entrance where the house number is also located. You can then park parallel to the Shack and follow the driveway past the main house through to the exit. Don't try and go back up the hill !!!

Your pets are welcome to stay in the fully enclosed outdoor lounge area, but for the comfort of all our future guests, not inside the Shack please. We supply pet beds and blankets.

The Shack is a fully isolated building, so there is no need for any interaction between guests and hosts. As an additional measure, we have extended our check in time to 3pm to allow further than normal sanitation / settlement cleansing etc. We are truly grateful for the way guests have been reacting at this difficult time.

The bed situation is one (very comfortable) Queen bed for 2 people and a sofa bed for a 3rd person. if the sofa bed is required for 2 people, please let us know when booking. There is a $15 charge for extra bed linen, towel, flannel etc to make up the sofa bed for 2 people. To action this, please enter 3 people when booking as this is the only way Airbnb can collect for the extra amount.


If you have strong reactions to mosquito bites, be aware that at certain times of the year (and especially at wet times), you are likely to get bitten if you are outside for a while without repellant. There is fly spray and mosquito repellant provided.

Tim moved to Australia from the U.K with his wife and 2 children in 2008. After living in Coffs Harbour for 9 years, the family decided to move to Sancrox to fully embrace the Australian country life and share it with others through the fortune of having the original house available.
