FAQ’s

General

Are Shackys only available in Australia?

At the moment yes.

How many people can stay in a Shacky?

Our first Shacky in the Olive Grove can host only two people. However our latest Shacky models in the Yarra Valley and Grampians can host up to three people. Some locations can even host your pets.

Is Shacky pet friendly?

The pet friendliness of each Shacky really depends on the host, so make sure to check this on the listing for your property of choice!

What exactly is a tiny house?

Tiny houses are typically homes that range in size between 10 to 30 square meters.
Beyond the literal, it’s the concept of downsizing to live more simply and to appreciate the important things in life.

What is Shacky

Simple tiny houses with all the comforts of home but none of the stress.
Designed for a truly unique getaway experience, Shacky helps you discover the hidden gems of Australia.

What’s included?

Your Shacky comes completely self-sufficient. Fresh linen, bath towels, biodegradable shower products and wood for the stove.

For the full list of amenities and optional extras such as hampers and other goodies, you can find out on the booking page of your chosen Shacky!

Where are the Shackys?

That’s a secret! For a truly unique getaway experience, we don’t reveal the exact location of your Shacky until a few days prior to your stay.

However, the general location, driving distance will be provided in the listings on the booking page, so you’ll always know how far you’re going.

Why tiny houses?

The idea of tiny houses fascinates us. Downsizing and stripping the foundation of a home or accommodation down to the bare basics allows us to live simply and appreciate what’s most important.

Our Shackys have been designed to maximise comfort, and encourage interactions between the guest and the environment. Whether with a loved one or just yourself, a Shacky stay offers a true getaway like no other.

Will the host be around during my stay?

While your host will be there to greet you and hand over the keys, they will be out of sight during the duration of your stay. Our hosts respect guests’ privacy but will always be on hand if needed

Will there be phone reception?

Shacky properties have been carefully handpicked to showcase only the most amazing of Australian landscapes. Because they are in such secluded locations, phone reception can often be quite spotty.

Sometimes there may not even be any reception at all (we personally think that adds to the whole experience!). For these properties we will be letting you know in advance where the closest spot for reception is.

The Shacky also features no wifi, so guests really get to disconnect, have a digital detox and connect with nature or those who matter!
