ROOM WITH A VIEW: The Shelly Beach shack.
ROOM WITH A VIEW: The Shelly Beach shack. Mireille Merlet-Shaw

It's ever so humble - but, oh! What a view!

This fancy shack at Shelly Beach, Ballina, may not look like much - inside or out - but you can't complain about its view! 

Inside, the shack has a little bench and a rubbish bin.

Local surfers said that at first, the shack was built on the beach, but was destroyed by the high tides.

It has since been built on higher ground.

We're guessing it's not quite managed DA-approved status with the Ballina Shire Council.
