Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Our little Toogoom 'shack' is close to the ocean: a few steps directly in front of house (in a dead-end street)! Our place is good for anyone who wants to escape hustle & bustle. Want to get back to basics, no frills attached? Then this 'shack' will do the trick! Come and relax: old style. See kangaroos, peacocks, wonderfully amazing birds & all wildlife 'typically Australian'. 15 minutes from Hervey Bay - you can board a boat and go Whale-Watching! Nothing flash, yet truly memorable 'SHACK'.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Loved the closeness to the beach, fishing and how peaceful and serene the area is. If our little dog could speak, he would agree:) Already planning our next visit.

This shack on the beach is a lovely comfortable place to stay. Lots of space for us to spread out. Beds are very comfortable and amenities up to a good standard. We loved the beach across the road the wildlife right on the doorstep. The neighbour very helpful and even enjoyed …

So happy you enjoyed your stay at the Shack, post-Commonwealth Games. It is nice having the beach meters away...and the wildlife is amazing. Hope the peacock said hello? And Brahman Kites out and about? Glad you liked the fire on the beach. D & K are wonderful neighbours. Safe trip home.

Australian family living in Beijing for twelve years. We hope you love our place in Tuscany, Casa Zola. Alternatively, the relaxed, laid-back 'Shack on an Esplanade' in Toogoom (Place of Rest) in Queensland Whale-Watching country is a totally different experience in Australia!
