This place was exactly what I wanted. The description was accurate. Very comfortable too. The staff at GOR holidays were great and helpful. They even looked after my dog when I was checking in. Thank you all
Not value for moneyJeff Fiedler - 7th February 2021
We have stayed at many properties in Lorne for our holidays but Jack’s Shack was a disappointment. Somewhat shabbier than the photos on display, there were a number of aspects that were not up to scratch, especially at $317 a night for a small, 2 bedroom place. Here’s a short list: Two of three TVs not working, lighting poor in kitchen, the place needs a spruce up with dirty peeling sills, some windows hard to open, dirty lounge chair, ragged balcony table, unkempt entryway etc.
Nice, cozy place for a small family and a great location.
Jack’s Shack is in a handy spot. Foodworks is just down the road and it’s an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the beach - although a decent incline on the way home ;). So great to be able to bring the whole family - pups love holidays too! We loved Lorne Larder for morning coffee, Bottle of Milk for post hike/waterfall treats, HAH jaffles on the beach, Mestizo for dinner out, and Coast Yoga. The property is not fenced (steep block makes for a lovely outlook) but our kids and dog enjoyed lots of walks near the house including the 4WD track (closed to vehicles during our stay for winter) at the top of the road, and down to ‘town’. Although we were concerned about heating from previous reviews we found that the house did warm up with the heater on. Throw rugs, electric blankets and extra doonas were all useful too. We would definitely stay again.

We've just had the most relaxing 10 days. Nice surprise to find a bottle of bubbly in the fridge & Tim Tams. Staff were all very helpful. Had a minor problem with the shower but it was repaired almost immediately.

My teenage daughters and I had a wonderful long weekend away at Jack’s Shack. We fell in love with the place as soon as we walked through the door!

We spent the weekend here and loved every minute! It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle. Property is tucked away in a quiet surrounding, and had everything we needed. Will return again and recommend.
