Frequently Asked Questions
Will we have the Shack to ourselves?
Yes! You will have the sole use of the Shack and the bunkhouse (if booked). However, the owners, their family and limited others do also launch boats from the shore but will not disturb you up at The Shack.
Are there any bedrooms or bathrooms at The Shack?
Yes! Guests have the option to book the bunkhouse which is comprised of 3 rooms with queen beds and 1 room with 2 singles. Hire of The Shack (even without the bunkhouse option) also comes with one bathroom that has a toilet and shower. Guests will need to bring their own toiletries.
Does it cost extra to book the Bunkhouse?
For each room it will cost an additional $100 one-off fee including towels and linen. You can also elect to bring your own linen which reduces the fee to $50 per room. You can book any/all of the rooms, however if you require a specific room (i.e. queen vs king singles) then please mention this in your booking.
Bunkhouse rooms (with or without linen) can be added to your reservation AFTER you have finalised your booking and have made the payment. Once you’ve made your payment for the standard ‘camping-only’ rate, you will be prompted to ‘add on’ some/all of the bunkhouse rooms.
Can we bring our pets along?
Unfortunately, we do require all pets to please stay at home.
Is there Wi-Fi at The Shack?
What do I need to bring?
Although we provide the basic cooking necessities, you will need to bring your own food for meals (unless you’re dining out at the spectacular cafes and restaurants nearby!).
You will also need to bring linen and towels if you select the BYO option for the bunkhouse rooms.
