Spring Beach Holiday House

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Closest to the beach, Spring Beach Holiday House is a traditional beach shack – one of the first built in the area. In 2016 it had an extensive upgrade (new kitchen, new bathroom, large new deck with outside bath, beach shower and brazier, polished floors, heating, etc) which provide modern quality facilities while maintaining its original homey feel.

Located on Tasmania's sunshine east coast only 5 minutes' drive south of Orford, Spring Beach Holiday House dates from the 1940s and 1950s and has been in the family since the 1970s.

The rustic vertical board house sits at the southern end of the beach, looking out over the ocean towards Mercury Passage and Maria Island. It is absolute waterfront, the closest to the water of all the houses in Spring Beach. With no roads to cross, it is a minute's walk to the beach and close enough to the ocean to be lulled to sleep by the waves at night...

Much-loved by many over the years, we know you'll be seduced by this place.

The Spring Bay area...

Offers plenty for those wanting to explore, exercise or dine well;

Is the gateway to the glorious East Coast, with Swansea, Bicheno and the Freycinet Peninsula within an easy drive; the town of Triabunna, with its ferry service to Maria Island, is 15 minutes' drive north of Spring Beach.

Is an environmental playground, with bike-riding routes, bush walks for all levels; and occasional dolphin and whale spotting

Offers an array of heritage experiences, such as the Convict Trail and Aboriginal middens.

At the northern end of Spring Beach, a 2km cliff-side walking track north to Shelly Beach provides magnificent coastal views of Spring Bay, Mercury Passage and the Maria Island National Park.


With room to sleep 7, this airy, light 3-bedroom house offers a new kitchen and new bathroom, dining/breakfast nook, family room, separate living (plenty of books and games) with French doors to deck access, landscaped gardens, large patio and BBQ area, and beautiful sweeping beach and ocean views.

Bedroom 1: 1 x queen bed

Bedroom 2: 1 x queen bed; 1 x single bed

Bedroom 3: 2 bunk beds

(Also provided is a fold-away single bed and a child's folding cot).

All three bedrooms face the water, the living room has an open fire and TV/DVD (with DVD library), the bathroom has a walk-in shower and second toilet, and there's an open-plan dining and kitchen area. Outside, we offer a large deck and patio area, a private and romantic bath, a second outside shower for washing away the beach sand, a choice of a wood- or gas-BBQ, and a brazier.

The house is 50m from Spring Beach, and a safe path offers a minute's walk to beautiful, pristine sand.


Spring Beach Holiday House is fully fenced and child-friendly.

Spring Beach Holiday House is smoking- free.

We do not allow any pets on the property at all.

Mobile phone coverage on the east coast is variable (depending on your carrier).

Wireless internet is available in the Spring Beach - Orford area, but fixed line internet is not available. We do not provide a landline.

You'll need to bring all food, toiletries and beach towels. Spring Beach is 5 minutes drive to Orford with its well-stocked supermarket, newsagent and post office, cafes, restaurants and pub/bottle shop. Petrol is not available in Orford. The nearest refuelling station is at Triabunna, 10km north.

We provide complimentary basic consumables (coffee/tea/pepper/salt/sugar/condiments etc); firewood (and a safety firescreen) for the open fire; pressurised water from rainwater tanks (we recommend that you boil all drinking water).

We do not provide a cleaning service during your stay.

Spring Bay, Prosser Bay and Mercury Passage are widely recognised for their first-class sailing and fishing.

Visit our island shacks website for more information on the Spring Beach Holiday House, and our Carrington Cottage on the northern tip of Tassie's Bruny Island. Stay at both and make the best of your holiday in Paradise.

Awesome shack

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday at Spring Beach Holiday House. The position close to the beach was fantastic, the views amazing, and the shack itself very well renovated - a new feel for a proper, old-school Tassie shack! We'll be sure to come again.

Lovely mid century beach shack

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lovely house. Great location with great views and steps down to the beautiful beach. The house was decorated perfectly for the era. Very comfortable couch and chairs. The best thing was the fire had been lit for us when we got there and the heating for the rest of the house was good. So thank you we will be back in the future.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Spring Beach. The property is superbly located and ideally set-up for outdoor living. The BBQ area and outdoor bath were big hits with everyone, and being able to walk to and from the beach so quickly meant that we got out a lot. We saw some interesting wildlife too.

We feel so privileged to have stayed in this family shack twice now, and we will return regularly. We love the spectacular views, the original 1950s features, the easy access to one of the most beautiful white-sand beaches in Tasmania, the sound of the waves at night ... A very special place.
