The space

Shelly's has beautiful water reserve frontage, and bush land privacy at the back. Shelly's can accommodate up to 5 adults, being a queen bed in the main room and a tri bunk in the second, which is a double bed with a single on top. Guests will enjoy the magnificent bird life, including pelicans and many different parrots. At night our sweet possums can be found coming out for a treat or two. We do have a fire pit and wood can be purchased for $15 large bag. And only a 30 - 40 minute drive to the magnificent Jervis Bay and Hyams Beach.

Guest access

Shelly's has an undercover BQ area, with a large grassed backyard.There is plenty of parking for boats and trailer, and outdoor storage for your surfboards, bikes etc.

Interaction with guests

Both my husband and myself are both very busy hosts and don't get to meet all of our guests especially overnight stays, but in saying that I am always contactable during your stay. I do appreciate that majority of guests like their privacy, and both myself and my husband both work and enjoy a bit of travelling ourselves. We do have someone on call at all times to assist you if required when we are away. As I have lived in Sussex Inlet for over 20 yrs, I do have a lot of knowledge of the area. My husband is a keen fisherman and surfer, so he is always happy to assist if required.

The neighbourhood

Sussex Inlet is just the perfect place for all water activities. If you have access to a boat then the best spot for swimming is the entrance into the ocean. Shelly's is within walking distance to the Bowling club, which has a lovely Chinese restaurant.Also our favourite place is Pelican Shores which is on the water and within walking distance just near Seacrest Caravan Park. Across the canal is the Lions Park which has a large boatramp and childrens playground.
The magnificent Jervis Bay and Huskisson are only a 35 min drive. There are a few lovely little cafes in the main street, but our favourite is called Pelican Shores which is located on the water near
Seacrest caravan Park, which is within walking distance it is also BYO.

Cosy cottage perfect for relaxing in a quiet area next to the water. Comfy beds, spotlessly clean kitchen with every utensil which we needed to cook a lovely meal. Also the cold milk in the fridge was a lovely touch. The house is totally private and you are not disturbed at all by anybody. We enjoyed our brekkie on the porch in the garden. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Michelle. Sarah and Sue, Liverpool UK

Michelle's place was fantastic. One couldn't ask for more! Spotlessly clean, wonderful location, and very comfortable. Even a car port for the car, and lovely garden. It poured with rain during our stay, but even that couldn't dampen our spirits. Thank you, Michelle, we loved it and recommend it to other Airbnb people in the area.

Shelly's was a fantastic base for our weekend stay in Sussex Inlet. It's literally a stone's throw away from the water and about 50-75m from some fantastic jetties which are perfect for fishing or boating. The 2 bedroom cottage is very neat and comfortable and really has everything you need for a weekend away. It is next door to the entrance to a caravan park but honestly you wouldn't even know it - the backyard is very private. We had success fishing off the nearby jetty and really enjoyed our dinner of freshly caught fish which we BBQed on the back deck whilst overlooking the spacious and well kept backyard. Michelle was friendly on email and provided clear instructions which helped make check-in a breeze. We also visited Jervis Bay and Hyams Beach during our stay - an easy 30 min drive away. If you are looking to accommodate 2-5 people in the area, this would make a fantastic base. Highly recommended and will definitely be back!

Im very outgoing, enjoy spending time with my grandchildren. I enjoy most types of music and love going to outdoor concerts.
I hope everyone who stays at Shellys enjoys themselves and can relax and unwind in our beautiful little town and what it has to offer.
