When we restored the shack, we made it a special place to escape to for our family and friends. Everybody loved it and our environmental message so much, they encouraged us to open it up for others to experience. We are so grateful that our guests have shown such great care and respect for the shack and we're truly humbled by their kind words left in our visitors’ book.

In their words ...

Staying at The Little Black Shack was a magical experience. The location of the shack allows you to gaze across to Palm Beach and has private beach access where you can use the provided kayaks, fishing gear and snorkels. The shack itself has a beautifully styled interior and exterior giving you a coastal holiday vibe, and is teamed with all the mod-cons like surround sound speakers, coffee machine ... and an outdoor pizza oven! Ingrid and Jamie have thought of everything you will ever need ... So much so that you'll never want to leave ... - book immediately!!

This is an awesome place to spend a few days relaxing. Really peaceful with beautiful views and plenty to do if you want to be active but just the sort of place to do nothing if that is what you want. The Little Black Shack has been restored in such a stylish and clever way, creating a really casual yet comfortable ambience. The attention to detail by the owners is stunning, pre-prepared kindling and wood for indoor fire, BBQ or Pizza Oven, a really well equipped kitchen with an array of spices, fresh herbs in the garden, fishing rods and bait, kayaks, I could go on. There is also a committed environmental theme in everything they have created. If you need to chill and want some seclusion from the rat race, this is the place for you.

Another fabulous stay in unique, barefoot luxury. Every detail is beautiful and considered - from the recycled furnishings to the gorgeous linens to the beautiful kitchen to the sandstone bathroom with Aesop products, to the lovely timber and stone terraces dropping down to the sea, and the views out to the lighthouse. Great array of books also! Thanks Ingrid and Jamie, wonderful hosts!  

The Little Black Shack is our idea of heaven. It is simple yet exquisitely beautiful in every way. The minute you walk in the door, any stress you have, just slips away. We will never tire of sitting on that amazing balcony overlooking the frangipani and the beach below. We can't wait to visit again ...

For anyone looking to get out of the hustle of the city and have a truly beautiful and relaxing get away - The Little Black Shack is the perfect oasis.

We absolutely loved everything about the shack! It is a unique and idyllic holiday spot. It felt like we were in another world. The views, the peace and privacy, the rustic charm of the house and lots of little spots to relax (inside and out) to take it all in. The pizza oven and pantry supplies where a great addition. Thank you so much, this was a holiday we definitely won't forget!

Ingrid and Jamie were wonderful hosts. The Little Black Shack is really a special little place. We loved waking up staring across at Barrenjoey Headland. We kayaked, swam, walked along the beach ... a perfect little break so close to Sydney. Would definitely recommend, and we will be back.
