See what our guests are saying after a stay at Kickback.


We were looking for a pet friendly house to rent for the weekend and were lucky enough to come upon Kick Back Beach Shack! Kick Back Beach Shack is a lovely cosy house that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing comfortable trip away. The house is immaculately presented and well kitted out with everthing you could think of to make your stay even more enjoyable – Playstation for the kids, BBQ, fully stocked kitchen. It was also lBeautifully located with sweeping views of One Mile Beach, we only wished we were staying for longer than a weekend so we could have enjoyed from the front deck for another couple of days. We are already planning our next visit!

Perfect Dog Friendly Stay!
We had a lovely stay at the Kick Back Beach Shack from the moment we walked through the front door. It is such a welcoming house, pristine clean and the decor is beachy and relaxed. We didn’t have to worry about our dog as the timber floor boards were easy to take care of, the secure back yard and proximity to the beach meant that he was just as much a welcome guest as we were! The view from the balcony meant that you could relax and take in the view, we spent a lot of time out there!. It was so nice to walk in and see that there were the small touches like all the kitchen things you would normally end up taking with you or buying such as detergent, glad wrap, paper towel, hand soap and lots more! We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality holiday spot, with or without your four legged friend!

View like no other!
We had a great 4 days at Kick Back shack, 2 adults, 3 kids and a dog! The property was clean and everything we needed was there. The yard was perfect and safe for our dog. We watched whales and dolphins from the balcony and walked to the patrolled dog friendly beach daily! Would definitely recommend this property and surrounds!

We really ‘kicked back’!
What a find this house is. One Mile Beach is a real gem of a spot with a great little cafe and excellent swimming/surfing conditions for the whole family. The house just gives you a relaxed vibe when you walk through the door. We wanted somewhere chilled and comfortable and the Kick Back Beach Shack did not disappoint - everything you might need is provided, we brought lots of extra kitchen stuff but didn’t need it as everything’s there already! The house was spotless and everything worked as it should and the owners are super helpful. The kids appreciated the games console during a rainy spell and we all loved the amazing front terrace with those unbeatable views. Wonderful that you can also bring your doggy to such a nice house, a rare treat! All in all its a home from home with ocean views. Can’t wait to go back!

Kick Back Beach Shack perfection
Recently 5 of us stayed at Kick Back Beach Shack on a weekend surf trip. The place is sensational. It has everything you need to feel right at home and the view from the front balcony is amazing of One Mile Beach. It is close to other beaches within the Forster area too, such as Tuncurry, Boomerrang Beach and Booti Booti National Park/Beach. I would stay here again on my next travels to Forster and would highly recommend it to my friends and family.

Absolutely Fabulous in every way possible!!
Our stay at the Kick Back Beach Shack was nothing short of amazing. Our Pyrenean Mountain Dog Aragorn enjoyed it just as much as we. Fantastic view over the ocean and only a short walk away. Quality Furnishings for comfort and enjoyment and every gadget you could possibly want to use on holiday. Cannot praise this accommodation too highly .... it’s perfect!!!
