Overview

About the property

The Shack at the Bay is simple and cosy beachouse located on the top of the hill at Binalong Bay. Ideal for a couple to escape the rat race and enjoy the myriad of local beaches, walks and mountain bike trails on offer.

Protected from the street by established native gardens, you can enjoy the ocean views or relax in the large garden in peace.

With the north-east facing open plan kitchen living area, surrounded by an extensive balcony, you can enjoy sunshine all day, inside or out. A large, lockable storage area downstairs is ideal for those looking to store their mountain bikes during their stay.

Ideal for a couple or small family, the Shack at the Bay offers two bedrooms (one queen bed and two single beds), a modern bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen/living area with modest but comfortable furnishings.

Soak up the atmosphere of the Bay of Fires, famous for its pristine beaches and coastal walks or head into the hinterland to walk or bike through the many forest trails on offer.

Lonely Planet recently nominated this location as one of the world's top spots and stated "this is the secret edge of Tasmania, laid out like a pirate's treasure map of perfect beach after sheltered cove, all fringed with forest . . . now is the time to visit!"

Simply furnished Shack at the Bay offers the comforts of home, without the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Enjoy a home-brewed espresso every morning from your own coffee machine, followed by a short stroll for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the cafe.

If you'd rather stay in, the fully-equipped kitchen will allow you to make the most of the locally-sourced seafood, cheese, wine and gourmet delights on offer along the coast and in the hinterlands.

Activities offered in the area and surrounds include: mountain biking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, deep sea game fishing, golfing, tennis, bushwalking and cycling.

We stayed a few months ago with our border collie and we loved the place so we returned.

Recommend for those who want a traditional shack experience. Just lovely.

Lovely spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 night stay at "Shack at the Bay" it was very comfortable and warm. The sun just poured in which was blissful. Lovely views and even though it was very windy I'm pretty sure we missed out on the worst of it as the shack has plenty of trees to provide a barrier. Everything you need is provided and the quality of the linen was good. Just a couple of items we had to buy. Some pegs and a colander which we left. Thank you for having the fire ready to light as we arrived in the dark. And the games were a thoughtful addition. We would recommend this shack and would love to return next winter. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. My apologies about the colander and the pegs!! We certainly had both those items and had not been advised otherwise by our cleaner (although it would be understandable if she missed them). I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love you to stay again. Kind regards Cat

Charming holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing holiday at this well appointed and charming holiday house. It was located in a very quiet and private spot, surrounded by trees, shrubs and native birds. Beautiful beach in walking distance. The owner was approachable and friendly. Four nights wasn't long enough!
