Where the Ocean meets the stars

The Shackeau is a beautiful romantic waterfront holiday shack. Positioned on the beach edge with stunning views it is like a dream.

Enjoy a romantic break in one of the most amazing locations any where or a fun relaxing time with family and friends. 

The sparkling play of the ocean's modes entertain from sunrise to sunset. Then on a clear night you will be gifted with the most incredibly bright stars and sublime moonlight.

Dolphins and giant stingrays often swim close by as you sip a glass of wine. You can even get a feed of muscles right in front! 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 small 2 bedroom self contained house with a large deck.  An outdoor entertaining area right on the water's edge with an open fire and BBQ are yours to enjoy in solitude. The main bedroom has a queen size bed with luxurious latex mattress while the second bedroom offers a unique queen size bunk bed for the kids or an additional couple to enjoy. 

The Shackeau offers the luxury of no TV, no DVD, no computer games and yes minimal phone reception. We apoloise 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 including tea and coffee. The bathroom has a bath with beautiful views across the water. The lounge has a Bose and NAD Sound system that you can plug your iPhone into. There is a cosy wood fire for winter, 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, Thune Airwalk and the numerous walks in the World Heritage Area.
