New South Wales cottage description
The Funky Shack is in a great location for quiet breaks surrounded by beautiful bush, ocean and waterways. Amazing bird, sea and wildlife. The vintage ferry leaves from the jetty just 500 metres from the Funky Shack and on a Sunday in peak season, the ride to Yamba comes complete with a jazz band! Stunning, unspoilt place just an hour from the Ballina/Byron Bay airport and a great place to base yourself to explore all that the local region has to offer.

Funky Shack stay
Funky Shack stay
This is tucked away in a shady glen - beautiful large shade trees with a large wrap around porch complete with BBQ and large dining table. The empty lot next door provides privacy. It was perfect for us - an older couple who enjoy yoga on the porch, reading, hiking and birdwatching. The Iluka rainforests and national parks near by were excellent resources. All the amenities are available in the village, within walking distance, and Sarah at the office provided information requested re birdwatching sites in the area. The electrical panel needs upgrading. The oven blows the fuses! the A/C had been disabled as it also blew the fuses. The lights are dim. Fans were provided and the large trees kept the cottage quite cool. The cottage might feel cramped for more than two couples.There is minimal storage. Coat hooks by the door would be nice. Internet/computers are free at the library (monday, wednesday, friday). If you are looking for a quite get away in a small village away from the maddening crowd, this is perfect. The local villagers were remarkably friendly. We were invited into several homes when we were out walking! The local fish is great!

Manager response: Thank you for your feedback Charmaine. We were not aware of these issues but have now upgraded the air conditioner which was causing the problems. All is now working fine with a new split system in place and the shack is cozy. Good idea about coat hooks. We plan to do this on our next visit. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We love our Funky Shack. All the best

About: I fell in love with Iluka the first time I went there. It is so beautiful and peaceful with amazing beaches and the stunning Clarence River. I live an hour or so away in the Byron Bay hinterland and found myself going to Iluka as often as I could. When the property came up for sale, I was lucky enough to be able to buy it.
Why New South Wales:
The Funky Shack is a wee heritage listed fishermans cottage - one of the originals in Iluka dating back to the 1920's. Its in a great location close to the river and the village. When I first bought it, it was run down and needed lots of work and love. Its now a great, comfortable cottage and has a great ambiance. I love it and feel privileged to own it and hope to retire here one day.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Funky Shack now has a huge verandah along one side - so big its the same size as the rest of the house! Its such a wonderful place to relax, watch the parrots in the native garden, read a book in a hammock, play coits, have a great BBQ dinner party or just watch the evening come in with a glass of wine.
