About Shelley Jackson-Shaw

Hi, we are a semi retired couple that love the water and mucking around with boats!

We are dog lovers and have two of our own that we adopted from an Remote Aboriginal Community where we worked as Shire and Regional Council Managers before heading to Kununurra and working with Western Australia Health .. flying out to very remote communities and offering respite care to the carers of the sick and elderly.

We have had many an adventure... Generally we return to Tasmania to spend the Summer and live in our Caravan at the top of our property... Enjoying the Beach House during the Winter ..

We are also renovation enthusiasts and are very proud of the transformation of our Beach House.

Stephen has a degree in Horticulture and Teaching and is a very experienced carpenter and landscaper.

Shelley is an Artist, Designer, Furniture Restorer, Dressmaker and Experienced Cook .. having worked at several restaurants in and around Hobart.


Shelley Jackson-Shaw purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Shelley Jackson-Shaw chose Eggs And Bacon Bay

To be honest it’s the same old adage ...

Location Location Location

It is “On The Beach” at beautiful Eggs&Bacon Bay. This little cottage although very dated and in need of renovation appealed to us so much because of its situation. It is almost impossible to purchase waterfront property and we did!

We love this area, the beaches... the native flora and fauna, the walks are amazing ... the solitude and yet we are only 15mins from popular town, Cygnet .

When family or friends come to visit there is so much to do and see, such as the local boutique wineries, blueberry farms, cafes in Cygnet... a little further afield Hastings Caves and the hot springs pool.

What makes this cottage unique

The view from our front verandah is simply breathtaking and we never tire of sitting out and watching the sun set with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day.

We also enjoy looking at the different types of sail boats that come to visit and shelter in our little bay.

We have wallabies that come and graze our marsupial lawn at night possums that like to visit.. encouraged by the odd apple thrown out for them.

Its a very friendly and relaxed little village to live in.

Listen to the crashing waves at night!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely wonderful! Eco friendly in all ways. We felt right at home immediately upon arrival. Being from the Pacific NW USA, we felt quite at home with the changing weather and up close and personal beach experience. The wood stove was really nice for the nights when the weather was on the colder side. There was every possible option for cooking in terms of appliances. All the furnishings were cozy and quaint. Boats were a nice option, as well as the wetsuits. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would recommend to anyone, especially families. We have a 9, 7, and 1 year old and this was perfect. This house was possibly the prettiest and most thoughtful place we have ever stayed (and we stay in a ton of VRBO's!).

Wonderful place to stay so relaxing and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful beach side home. As we walked in we were welcome to a very clean and calming colours on a beach design interior, just perfect. The kitchen was cute and quaint. The house was so clean so a well done to the cleaner as well. The property is very pet friendly, a place out the back for them and on the front deck they can see what's going on down at the beach. Lovely watching the sunset and a great fishing spot. We just loved our stay :)

On the Beach

  • 5 of 5

As they say in the famous movie - "feel the serenity". This is a wonderful place to stay; all the usual adjectives can apply - peaceful, tranquil, wonderful views, wild life all around, etc. The house is beautifully appointed and well equipped.
