The Pines is the quintessential Australian beach shack. perched on the frontal sand dune literally a stone’s throw from the high water mark. Cool off on the front veranda or deck and enjoy the unencumbered ocean views. *One of, if not the best of any spot in Teewah. Renovated in a seaside style, the shack accommodates a maximum of 4 guests and is perfect for a couple with a dog or one small family.
Other features include an open dining / lounge room, two bedrooms with one queen bed and two single beds and bedside tables, and air-conditioning, a front veranda with various seating options and a front deck with a dining setting for eight guests. Other features include a galley style kitchen, bathroom, powder room, laundry and a beautiful timber open air screened pavilion with dual showers. If the south east winds whip up and you still want to be outside you can retreat to the back garden to an expansive deck for dining, bbq and lounge that steps off onto lawn areas.

- A large tank located behind the shed (via pump in shed) supplies all house water points except the cold water tap at the kitchen sink, which supplies drinking water only from a small elevated tank.

This can be turned off with the flow lever in the steel box beside the electrical meter box attached to the southern side of the house.

- The lights incorporated with the fan are a bit bright (sorry electrician installed 4000K in stead of 3000k), BUT there is dimming. 3 levels. flick the light switch of and on again quickly and this moves the dim level setting.
Pulsing Fan Noise
- If you hear a pulse sound in the fans occasionally this is a general network Energex pulse for switching of off peak appliances which is stronger at the end of the network such as at Teewah. Nothing to worry about, Energex have measured this and it does not in there opinion warrant any remediation.
What to take
- The shack is only a step up from camping, so you will still need to take, your own sheets and pillow cases, bath and beach towels, shampoo and conditioner and body cleanser, all your food and drinks, coffee pods (Nespresso compatible), 60 Litre bin bags, kitchen towels, cloths washing detergent, mozzie repellent/coils., To be on the safe side we suggest you also take dishwashing detergent, olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Should power failure occur in the network the tenants are permitted to connect the portable Honda petrol generator to supply the house. The generator is located in the shed and tenants will need to relocate to the front southern side of the house near the electrical meter box. Inside the meter box is a cable to plug into the generator. Once connected the isolator switch (located furthest to the right in the switch panel within the meter box) will need to be push into the up position. We mains power resumes for the village simply reverse the process. Please advise if the generator was used so that additional unleaded fuel and be purchased.
- Please note that in severe weather events the old shack dose a leak spot between the kitchen and the laundry and we recommend that a towel be placed on the floor for safety reasons
