Don’t be fooled by the name, 'beach shack' this stay is not

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Some getaways stay with you even long after you’ve checked out and come down from your post-retreat high. You get a warm, happy feeling whenever you think back on them, and the memories of your experience will have you absentmindedly smiling in the line for your morning coffee. That’s what happens with Frank’s Shack in Dromana. This isn’t a holiday house – it's a home.

Frank’s sits like a stretched weatherboard wonder that awaits visitors as they rumble up the driveway. As with most getaways, there’ll likely be a race – formally announced or not – to see who snags which bedroom. But nobody gets the short end of the stick at Frank’s Shack, and each of the five bedrooms is beautifully appointed. Kids can shack up (pun intended) in the room with bunk beds and adults can divvy up the remaining rooms between them. Soon enough, the home will come alive with the sounds of bare feet padding along floorboards, the click-clack of bouncing Ping-Pong balls and cries of, “When are we going to the beach?” It’s that easy to feel at home at Frank’s.

The use of pallets is ingenious and gives Frank’s Shack a design edge. Some beds are propped up on pallet stacks-come-mattress bases, and outside, rather than meeting at a table for afternoon wines and grazing platters, you’ll gather around a pallet pile. It’s a look that wouldn’t be out of place at posh breweries. Other style-savvy additions are the kitchenette in the games room and sun-drenched window seats.

Please note Frank’s Shack is BYO linen (sheets, pillowcases, towels, tea towels). Linen can be provided, at an extra charge, on a per-bed basis or for the whole house.
