We are a beloved, original 1950's Apollo Bay shack positioned on a quiet street within a minutes stroll to the beach, river & golf course! After your scenic drive, leave the car parked - it's literally only a few minutes walk to town for any dining or shopping pleasures as well!
With a great location, open plan living/dining, an open fireplace, lovely grassy front/backyards and a cosy rustic vibe, it's a fun place to relax and enjoy Apollo Bay & its surrounds..
We are delighted we can offer a fun, affordable and amazingly located place for the single traveler, couple/s or the whole family, + pets to enjoy Apollo Bay & it's surrounds. We love to be with our dog & welcome your fur family to come on holiday to enjoy time with you.
When the sun is up, the north direction of the house makes a morning cuppa delightful, either in or outside. As the sun goes down if it's a little chilly, enjoy the charm of lighting the fire and kicking back on the comfy couch with your favourite book, tv show, beer, wine or friend.
A huge fenced backyard makes it a perfect place to run about and throw the ball with the kids or dogs, stash any of your outdoor gear easily or sit outside either for a sun tan or a night under the stars.
The kitchen/dining has a full supply of cooking/crockery needs with a gas cooktop/oven/grill and a huge fridge/freezer for all your goodies.
Wooden floors throughout the bedrooms & living room make it a no dramas place for the sandy feet to be swept up after a day of enjoying the beach.
If you aren't a pet person, rest assured The Beach Shack is kept super clean & welcomes you too. Although we are thorough with cleaning, if you are allergic to dogs please consider that stray hairs are sometimes unavoidable.
