Crescent Head - granny flat - separate dwelling

The Salty Shack


Beds: 1 Baths: 1 Cars: 1 Guests: 2
$150 Per Night

Salty Shack is a unique guesthouse hand-crafted & built by ourselves with a high elevation overlooking Crescent Head front beach & creek, Killuke mountains & the town below. Nestled high among the mango and banana trees, salty shack is fully self-contained and private where you'll have a relaxing time staying here. The deck has a beautiful day bed & stools to sit and soak up the view & sea breeze. Stroll through our garden to pick seasonal fruit, veggies & herbs.

The space
Launched mid Nov '19 this is a brand new space so be among the first to experience the new & fresh feel.

We built the salty shack using locally milled hardwood timber and even the clay tiles are hand-crafted & glazed by us making it a one-of-a-kind place to stay. Everything you see in the Salty Shack, we have crafted using our hands - all except the plumbing and electrical work (that's a good thing as we aren't sparkies or plumbers!)

Guest access
You will have the entire guesthouse & deck to yourself...although our 2 cats George & Noodles will come check you out if they didn't greet you at your car. We also have a small puppy called Herbie who will be doing his puppy thing outside during the day so please ensure you shut the gate when you arrive and leave.

We welcome you to share our beautiful backyard - explore what the garden has growing including fruit trees like bananas, mangos & citrus.

☆You can pick Mangos from your deck when they are ripe! ☆

Our veggie & herb garden is also full of seasonal home-grown produce for you to enjoy.

There is an outdoor shower for you to wash the salty day away.

*****Please note: we do not provide wi-fi or have a smart tv (just a regular tv)...great time for a Netflix detox!*****

We have a laundry which you are welcome to use.

Please do not park on the grass in between houses as this is not our land and our neighbours use this access regularly. Please only park on the nature strip out the front parallel to the garden hedge, thank you.

Other things to note
We have two cats George and Noodles and one puppy Herbie who live with us and you will be sharing their territory. They have free reign throughout our house & garden. This may mean they will come to visit you. If you don't want them in the guesthouse please don't let them in. They are very friendly & affectionate and are more than happy to meet and greet new people. Please be aware Herbie may greet you at the gate-please do not let him out. He is small and easy to manage if he does greet you.

If you don't like animals, dogs or cats then please do not book our place as we will not lock them up or remove them during your stay. please ensure you shut the gate whenever you are arriving or leaving so that our dog or toddler does not escape and run on to the road.

We also have a toddler who is quiet most of the time but we play in the garden during the day where we laugh and chat so you may hear this.

Managed By Rhys

We're a relaxed trio in Crescent Head with our Toddler Archie. We have 2 cats George & Noodles and Herbie our puppy. After spending many holidays camping in Creso we decided to make the move 7 years ago from Sydney and love it. One of us will usually be around the property while guests stay but we will also be going about our days balancing work while coming and going from a surf, paddle board, fishing or toddler adventures.
