Welcome to our beach shack. It's not the Hilton, but we love it. Only a few minutes walk to beautiful Shelly Beach, Long Jetty bay, Tuggerah Lakes golf course, Bowling Club, and shopping centres – it makes for the perfect, non-touristy, relaxed getaway.
On the outside, it looks plain, but on the inside it's a lot of fun. There's 3 good-sized bedrooms, all with double beds. A fooseball table, board games. The living areas and kitchen are all open plan, so even if the weather takes a turn, you can easily still relax in the space.
The kitchen is complete with everything you need, plus there's a fridge (Chuck Norris) and chest freezer.
Outside there's plenty of room for the kids or pets to play. Sit around our little drum fire if it's a little chilly or relax in the dbl-sized hammock with a book on a sunny afternoon.
Walking distance to Shelly Beach (surf beach), Tuggerah lakes golf club, the bowling club, leagues club and a major shopping centre.
In driving distance, there's The Entrance where you can feed the pelicans daily, Toowoon Bay which is great for the kids, plus and endless supply of activities like bowling, and putt putt.
Common sense hopefully prevails. Be respectful, treat it like you would a friend's place. If you break something, replace it, or leave money so we can replace it. And have fun.
Another brilliant stay at Daniel & Oscar's. We first came a year ago and enjoyed our stay so much we returned. The house is everything a beach shack should be: spacious, clean, laid-back with a handy backyard and a beautiful surf beach minutes away. Loved the bushwalks and tidal rockpools and the symphony of the crickets every evening. We'll be back!
We spent the month of March at the Beach Shack, and it was a totally awesome experience! Like Daniel says, it's nothing fancy, but it more than met our needs! It was clean, and provided all the necessary amenities! Our grandsons came and spent a few days with us and Daniel even had a portacot, a swing, beach toys, etc. for them to be able to use!
The Beach Shack was close to everything in the Central Coast! Nothing was more than 30-40 minutes away in any direction! Shelly Beach was within walking distance, nice cafes nearby, walking trails up to Crackneck Lookout...it was a heavenly holiday!
Daniel was quick to respond whenever we emailed...he was a terrific host!
We would most definitely rent the Beach Shack again when we're back in Oz on the Central Coast! We travel the world full-time, and this was definitely a top notch experience for us!
Thanks again, Daniel! We'll be back!
A lovely, clean, spacious and chilled out place to spend a week or more. Great location with the beach and shops nearby. Will be back
Daniel was a great host, replying promptly to any questions I had regarding the rental. The description of the house, photos and location were superb. It was very well maintained, clean and I didnt want for anything. Even though the house looks basic from the outside the renovations inside make it very spacious. I love open plan.
Daniel was lovely and replied promptly to all questions we had. The place itself was in a good location, close to the beach and to the entrance. We also enjoyed the stash of board games and the fussball! The price was very reasonable and it was a pleasant stay, thank you!
My family and I had a wonderful stay at 'the beach shack' (including my two little dogs). It was the first holiday that we could take my dogs with us.. They really enjoyed the dog beach which is a nice walk from the house!
Pretty much everything we needed was at the house. beaches and cafés etc very close- walking distance.
Shops and restaurants - just a short drive away. My 2 year old niece loved going to the Entrance for ice cream and to look at the Pelican Feeding at 3:30pm daily. Lots of other fun things for kids to do in driving distance of the shack.
We very much enjoyed our stay and will hopefully return one day soon :)
I would love to leave a bad review just to keep this place to myself, but I can't, it was just what we needed, close to shelly beach, the Jetty's for fishing, the supermarket, parks for the kids also 20 - 30 minute drive to the amazement farm, the Australia walkabout wildlife park and the Australian reptile park. My kids had a ball and are already asking me to go back, we enjoyed it to, the place itself has pretty much everything you need, but we had great weather and where out most of the time but always close enough if our smallest family member needed a sleep in the portacot, may I add that Daniel had that for us in the house. Many thanks for the stay we had a great time.
I'm a dad, a husband and a hard worker. I love surfing, scotch and action movies. The favourite places I've been are Hawaii, Thailand and Vietnam, and of course, Shelly Beach on the Central Coast.
