Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great spot to stay to explore this part of the coast. Warm and comfortable house with a beautiful view. Quiet and peaceful this time of year. Thanks.

I'm not sure it's possible to rave enough about the shack - it is perfectly situated, with easy access by foot or car to a wide range of activities. It reminded me strongly of childhood beach vacations where the mix of pragmatic features and nostalgic elements were ideal. Lovely large yard. The perfect place for daydreams and board games.

The booking process was a breeze. Getting access when we arrived was easy. The place was clean and tidy. The location is great if you enjoy a good view and want to serve breakfast to a mate fishing on the floating pontoon across the road. Ok the fish weren't participating but it was a great way to escape post lockdown. A short walk to town or the surf beach and there are local dining options. Nearly every time we thought of something we needed it was in a cupboard or drawer(we left 2 stubby coolers in a drawer for future guests). Beds were comfortable and the lack of TV reception wasn't a major problem because we had an Optus wifi dongle and took down a bunch of comedy dvd's - so much better than watching the news these days. We would definitely stay again.

We really enjoyed a week at the 'beach shack'. It was so quiet and we slept amazingly well. The shack had everything that we needed including a big fridge, stove, oven microwave and all of the cooking utensils you could want. Deb was a fantastic host and communicator. She responded very quickly to all messages. There is a little jetty that we put chairs onto so we could fish and watch all of the birdlife. We liked being so close to Port Cambell as well. We would certainly stay again.
