About Kerry-Lee Foord

I have 10 years experience in running two short term holiday properties in Gerroa. The properties are well maintained and constantly updated. We have been fortunate to live overseas and travel extensively. Along the way I have learnt what makes a house enjoyable to stay in. Both houses enjoy many repeat guests.

Simple and relaxing getaway close enough to Sydney

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit and we will be back. We spent time exploring down at the beach, played games, had breakfast at Berry’s Sourdough bakery, dinner at Fishos, listened to music and read. Peaceful down time was what we needed. You take your own linen.. next time I will remember a bath mat and hand towel just to have those home comforts. I love this time of year at the Beach Shack. Thank you!

We had a wonderful mini getaway, the house was clean, cosy and in a great location with great views...and no TV which was super! Loads of CD's and old records which we played all weekend. We will be back!

Excellent Beach House

Had such an amazing stay, the view is incredible. We enjoyed playing the vinyl on the record player, with a glass of wine in hand. Very comfortable beach shack for a long weekend getaway
