About the property

Situated one hours drive from Hobart it makes an ideal base for exploring the sunny East Coast and its many attractions. To the North, Freycinet National Park offers beautiful scenery and spectacular walks. To the South, visit Port Arthur and its convict ruins. To the East is beautiful Maria Island. Take the ferry and enjoy a day exploring what it has to offer. Restaurants, shops and services are located only 10 minutes walk away. The area is excellent for bike riding, fishing, easy walking and surfing/boogie boarding at Spring Beach. A mooring is available for use by owners of small craft and is situated a stone's throw from the front door.

The house has had a major renovation with a new kitchen and two new bathrooms. It has a cosy woodheater, panel heaters for those cooler months and Tastic lights in both bathrooms.

Fill your days with action or just laze away reading whilst admiring the stunning uninterrupted views of Prosser Bay and the Mercury Passage Enjoy watching the children playing safely on the sheltered beach in front.

We love it, you'll love it!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful location! My friends and I spent 2 nights here in October and were so impressed with the property. Right on the beach, light, warm, comfortable beds, plenty of space for the 9 of us, with all the conveniences of being at home! Having 2 bathrooms was great and the open kitchen/dining/day bed were perfect for sitting around watching the sunset with a glass of wine. Will absolutely be back! Thanks for a wonderful weekend :)

Fell in love with the location and house.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this house and location! This was our 3rd and last house of our Tasmania holiday we were staying at and absolutely fell in love!! Driving down the mountain along the beautiful river and being just a hill away from the sand could not get any better! House felt like home and we were very relaxed. Great little quiet community, friendly neighbours, friendly local IGA staff. Our holiday ended on a great high thanks for our stay!!!

A house with a view

  • 5 of 5

We have a comfortable stay in this property. The house is spacious

and it provides with everything that we need. The best part of this property is its position. It situates right on the beach. We can hear the wave and watch the sunrise. I can spend the whole day sitting on the deck reading and listening to the birds. That is a paradise.
