About the property

Have you ever wondered what Paradise might be like? Here is your chance to find out.

Consider this your personal invitation to chill out in The Beachshack, the acclaimed, sensitively restored 1926 Fisherman's cottage sitting right on the rock-shelf and sand is the LAST REMAINING original Fisherman's shack on Gunyah Beach. Blissfully private, the "Shack" has vine covered pergolas shading a relaxing chill-out area, and another outdoor BBQ space lit by fairy lights in the evening, on either side of the original cottage.Fully self -contained, with large enclosed verandah, bedroom/sitting room, and self contained kitchen, plus beautifully restored shower and vanity area in adjacent original "wash house", the Shack has won numerous TOURISM AWARDS and has been the romantic location for many photoshoots . It is suitable for ONE COUPLE. Regrettably we do not cater for children over 12 months, and NO PETS.

For your added security, this property Bundeena Beachshack is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts


Located between Port Hacking and the Royal National Park just an hours drive from the Sydney CBD, Bundeena is a village renowned for its artists,writers, musicians, environmentalists and those seeking a healthy lifestyle. Why not visit THE WEIR restaurant just opened at AUDLEY WEIR, for a coffee break or meal on the way. Within its enormous protected park environment in the world\'s oldest National Park, you will find aboriginal carvings, magnificent walking trails, and sparkling clean beaches.

The RSL.which unfortunately partly burnt down a few months ago, and is now being restored. is also the local tourism hub, where you can get maps and information you help you decide where to explore, There are so many interesting and even challenging walking trails. You will find maps , and other interesting information, in the Beachshack's Information folders inside the cottage.

Very Good

We had a wonderful couple of days. The weather was perfect as was the location. To step outside alkmost onto the sand & clear water. To hear the waves rolling in at night was very soothing & restful. Wonderful stay will be back again

WOW ! What a view

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a relaxing weekend away from renovating our home and got just that. The drive up from Wollongong through the National park was just beautiful and to arrive at the Beachshack overlooking the water was breathtaking.

WOW !! What a weekend

  • 5 of 5

This little shack built on sandstone is amazing ! We walked the beach to town, explored the art galleries and enjoyed the view over Port Hacking while the water lapped against the stone foundatons. We will be back time and time again !
