The Shackeau

The Shackeau is a lovingly appointed 2-bedroom cottage located right on the beach edge in the peaceful seaside village of Southport. With unrivalled views of Southport’s beautiful bay from a large deck and “infinity” hot tub, the Shackeau is perfect for your romantic getaway or a relaxing long weekend with friends.

The cottage is fully self-contained and each bedroom features a queen size bed, making it ideal for one or two couples to enjoy. Take in the enchanting scenery, local Pinot in hand, from the privacy of your own outdoor tub. Or retreat inside to the cosy wood fire and watch the shifting colours of the bay as evening sets in.

There is no television, minimal phone reception and no Internet, so you can leave the worries of the world behind as you enjoy this special place.

What an amazing location… was positioned so well right on the water we had to drag ourselves out to do some local sight seeing… the spa bath almost overhanging the cliff edge to the water was the icing on the cake where the view from the tub was superb. It was great to have use of the bikes and fishing gear too, even caught a nice flathead whilst spending a lazy arvo…. would have been great to have use of a couple of kayaks too but our host did suggest a local hire company which was great too… overall one of the best airbnb experiences we have had… didn’t even miss tv with that outlook to mesmerise the whole time…. excellent.

My husband and I really enjoyed staying here. The hot tub was lovely and warm and we enjoyed doing our own meals in the well equipped kitchen. Eating on the deck taking in the unbeatable view was great! All in all a lovely weekend, we would highly recommend.

Fabulous remote location surrounded by some of the most scenic and rugged countryside. The Shackeau is perched on a rocky outcrop right on the waters’ edge. Well appointed, spotlessly clean with a cosy fireplace… highly recommend for a secluded retreat.
