Small bungalow nestled in Australian bush on rustic 4 acre property. Retreat from the hustle and bustle. 5 minute drive to Lorne beach and main street. Good place to chillax and one of the most affordable listings in town.

The space

A 50m lit path will guide you from the driveway to the shack:

- double bed
- wood fire (some wood provided, but you may also like to bring a bag of wood. Wood can be purchased at the supermarket)
- board games
- linen provided (towels & bedding)
- separate shower/laundry/toilet block

The shack has some basic kitchen stuff; fine for preparing light meals, but not a full kitchen. For main meals we recommend checking out the variety of restaurants & cafes in town.

Kitchen basics in the shack include:

- Sink/small bench top
- Kettle
- Sandwich press
- Toaster
- Selection of teas
- A few dishes
- Fire pit for BBQ (weather permitting)
- Outdoor fridge at the main house (or BYO an eski & ice to have down at the shack with you. Ice can be purchased at the supermarket)

Guest access

GPSs are not reliable for accessing our property. Directions are provided via Airbnb after booking confirmed. We also message directions to guests a couple days prior to checkin. Car essential.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I live in the main house. We greet you on your arrival, show you around and may see you from time to time as you come and go. If you need help with anything please don't hesitate to ask.

Other things to note

-1km gravel road leading to property.
- Our neighbour sometimes starts his truck early in the morning to depart for work, which you can hear from the bungalow.
- Be careful of kangaroos when driving to the property (particularly on dark).
- The shack does not have black-out curtains, you will get natural morning light.
- Property is on tank water. We appreciate if people can use water wisely.

The Shack is fantastic. Secluded, private and serene, yet 5min drive to Lorne. Hosts are warm, welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. I'll be back next year.

Great communication from alexis, she was super lovely and helpful - even writing down some lovely walks in the area and offering to have the fire ready when we returned. Very rustic little shack, but everything you need for weekend getaway.

We had a truly relaxing couple of nights in the shack. A cosy little place nestled in among the trees, a nice spot to recharge and add some balance to living in a city. Alexis and John were warm and generous. We would definitely love to return.

My husband and I are active people. We cycle, surf and enjoy local walking tracks. Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions about the local area. We often stay in AirBnb homes when we travel and started hosting a couple years ago. We really enjoy the AirBnb experience and the people we have met. We live simply, our home is real life Aussie bush living, eclectic and bohemian. Close to everything, but off the beaten path.
