Winners of Stayz Best Family Accommodation in Australia, we know that Play Shack® is the perfect family accommodation and will surpass all expectations.
We offer a premium collection of five holiday homes, all located within a few minutes’ of each other in the Victorian High Country. Our Play Shack® properties - named 1 to 5 - are each independent of each other and are booked separately. Proudly family owned and run, all accommodation are purely set up as professionally run full time accommodation and our dedication to our guests shows in every booking.
Play Shack® 2 will provide the ultimate luxury outdoor getaway for your family and friends. If you are looking for that perfect family location, then look no further - you have just found it. Whether your family consists of young children, grown up children or none at all this stunning rustic log cabin which collides with modern architecture has it all. Enjoy skiing in winter, only 25 minutes’ drive from the property, and the rest of the year enjoy endless activities that the region and Play Shack® has to offer.
We cannot help but boast that the back door leads directly to the Delatite River and wonderful outdoor scenery of the Victorian High Country. Trout jump out of the water to tease you and daily visits from kangaroos, birds and the occasional deer make the stay even more exciting. A wonderful location for professional and amateur photographers, nature lovers and anyone who desires something very special.
The main accommodation comfortably caters for 3 families with 3 master king bedrooms, a bunk room for all the kids, and plenty of living and dining areas - all with beautifully designed interiors. Plus, there's an abundance of play equipment, both inside and outside. Play Shack®2 also features a drying room for guests' convenience during the damper months.
Inside Play Shack® 2, families are extremely spoilt. Two distinct wings of the house provide peace and quiet: on the ground floor there are beautiful vistas of the river and hills, while upstairs caters for fun and games for kids and adults in a spectacular games room with floor to ceiling windows and a rumpus area full of play equipment. Who can resist such classics as pool, ping pong, air hockey, foosball table and the classic Pacman arcade games console table. Our cupboards are full of games, books, toys, DVDs, and drawing items.
Outside there is so much space and privacy for the entire family. Adults can enjoy a quiet rest or drink by the river while the kids use the play equipment such as the trampoline, swing set and bikes, followed by a play in the river.
For families with toddlers, we make life a little easier when packing the car; no need to pack porta cot, high chair, booster seats, a step to reach the sink, child's loo seat or even a potty. We also have bike for all kids ages to use and inflatable tubes for river play and a large second fridge located in the undercover 4 carport for easy access in the summer months.
Play Shack® 4 is our rustic baby cabin, located on the same one acre of land can also be booked for flexibility and comfort at an additional charge to the quote online. Consisting of a semi-self-contained two bedroom cabin newly constructed from recycled materials, it is perfect for another family, the in laws, or a private love shack for a couple.
There is so much for all to do that, by choice, we have no TV reception. We would love for our guests to take full advantage of the unique qualities of the property and outdoor pleasures at their doorstep. With this decision, we hope to encourage friends and family to enjoy each other’s company at this special setting. Confirmed by feedback we get from guests on departure, we are delighted to know that we have achieved this. However, we do have two DVD players and a large library of DVDs for all ages for those who require a TV fix.
Due our extraordinary location of outstanding natural beauty, size and flexibility, we now offer our accommodation for intimate gatherings such as weddings, birthdays, milestone anniversaries and corporate events. Now with the introduction of a Play Shack® events coordinator we have everything covered - photographer, wedding planner, personal chef to come to the property to deliver or prepare and serve gourmet meal for all tastes. A special treat and very affordable. Why not go all the way & let David our local Helicopter pilot collect you from Play Shack®'s door step for an amazing adventure over Mt Buller and even a mountaintop landing for a memorable outing and some fantastic family photos.
After 12 years in business, known to be simply the best in the area, we have a wonderful reputation with local businesses, we have negotiated some exclusive specials and discounts for our guests. From the first round of drinks on the house at a local restaurant and pub, discount snow board and ski equipment hire, discount local Beauty Day Spa, to free coffee and treats to mention only a few. Not to forget your furry friend, who gets a complimentary bath and nail clip at a 5 star pet resort on the way to Play Shack® .
Please enjoy scrolling through our photos, all taken from the grounds of the property or received from our appreciative guests (except snow scenes). We are often asked "is it really as good as the pictures?" We are sorry to say it's not - it is even BETTER. Our guests tell us "it was beyond our expectations." We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Play Shack®... Play or just kick back & relax
