Great location and layout of the home. Family friendly home however needs maintaince and upkeep
Great location and layout of the home. Family friendly home however some maintaince and upkeep really need to be done.
Thanks, Christalia, for your review and your stay at Frank's Shack. We are glad you enjoyed the location and layout. Frank's Shack is one of Dromana's first properties. It has been lovingly renovated and most guests appreciate the new, ultra modern bathrooms in the home. Many of the original features still exist, including the hand-painted murals on the walls. We embrace the old fashioned charm and yet the recent renovations have been sympathetically done. However, if you are after a newly built property with all modern fixtures and fittings then it probably won't suit.
Excellent for the larger group holiday!
One thing we found excellent about this property is the way we could all sprawl out around the different living areas...There was never any feeling of being cramped in together, and with 9 adults and 3 kids, that's not an easy thing to achieve. Its super close (an easy walk) to a good swimming beach and within walking distance to the local town if you could be bothered. Its also really close to the chair lift and Arthurs Seat. There is a really good sized very secure yard for kids to play in and a great deck to sit out on and watch them!
Would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Dromana.
Thank you for your wonderful review, Julie. It was such a pleasure to have you stay. Thanks for adding to the wonderful memories at Frank's Shack!
Perfect for our Group
We had a junior sports team and parents stay at franks Shack and it was perfect for our group of 16 (8 kids and 8 parents) Loved to warm fire. The house was beautifully renovated. The only problems we has (and they were not really problems) was that there could have been a little more cutlery and the driveway was a bit tricky for smaller cars. Highly recommended for any large family group.
Great house for large family group aged 70 to 4!!!
Plenty of room for kids to roam in garden. Nice and easy walk to beach and shops.
Thank you, Maria, for your positive comments! We were happy to be able to host your family getaway and hope you'll be back to stay soon.
Fantastic Beach Getaway
As a group of family and friends we visited Frank's Shack for a weekend away and thoroughly enjoyed our time down there. The house had everything we needed and was only a two minute walk to the beach. The weather was fantastic which meant the BBQ and outside area came in very handy. The large dining area worked well with such a large group and the living space accommodated everyone without feeling too small. I would highly recommend a trip to Frank's Shack and hope to return myself at some point soon! Many Thanks!
Thanks, Lucia, for your fantastic review! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the property so much. Thanks for your stay!
Great spot for extended family stay
House is amazing. Was plenty of room for our three young families (6 kids) plus Gran and Granddad to relax in. Kids love the tabletennis and yard and parents loved the coffee machine and all the space.
Thanks, Rebecca, for your comments. I am pleased to hear that your 3 families and grandparents enjoyed the space and facilities at Frank's Shack! Merry Christmas to you all!
