Holland House is a comfortable, luxurious and honest beach house. A place to relax, read, listen to music.
And of course, to look at the sea. When was the last time you really noticed the world around you? You'll be inspired. The open plan living areas allow for million dollar views to the "Bay of Fires".
Just imagine yourself lazily on the large pillows. Doing nothing, simply feel and be mindful.
It's about simple life in a beautiful place. You'll see that beauty is everywhere.
Holland House is elevated above the land on slender steel columns as though it could be plucked from the site leaving no evidence of its existence. With respect to nature at this location: rugged terrain and beautiful climate.
Rainwater is collected and kept in a tank and reused. The slow combustion heater in the living area heats the whole house. And the floors and decks are all of recycled eucalyptus wandoo wood, which came from a Western Australian shearing shed.
Holland House consists of two bedrooms upstairs with each a queen-sized hotel quality bed. A third small bedroom has a single bed of the same quality as our queen beds.
Your bed is comfortably made before your arrival. Linen is all white and very crisp.
The view from the master bedroom ocean side is breathtaking. If you like getting up early open your blinds and watch the sun rise. Welcome the start of each new day.
Our bathroom with double sinks and double shower with Vola fittings is upstairs as well as your Happy Cupboard with your bath towels and your beach towels. Shampoo, body wash and hand wash are upmarket brands e.g. Rituals.
Dining area is downstairs with the well equipped kitchen. The pantry is stocked with dry goods for your convenience. The expansive living area opens out to the decks. A second toilet is on the ground floor.
The Baby Weber BBQ is set up on the roadside deck. Luckily it has a lid so no possum can steal your food!
Award winning from the RAIA (Royal Australian Institute of Architects) in 2007 and various publications on Holland House
RAIA judges: "The assured rationalist form is in clear and deliberate contrast with the surrounding raw landscape, underscoring the definition between the natural and the built".
"Simply stunning, stunningly simple",
Alison Ribbon in the Sunday Tasmanian July 15, 2007
"The house celebrates the form of a shipping container, a nodding reference to the many nautical miles that separate the Dutch owners from their homeland".
Jenna Reed Burns in Houses, issue 53
""Beach Shack" situated in lush native bushland on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, a testament to environmentally conscious, coastal living".
Australia's Best Beach Houses, edited by Gary Takle, 2010
"The European functionalism (of the beach house)- its warm, clean interiors and simple, unadorned style- has been infused with several gestures towards vernacular Australian architecture".
Specifier magazine, issue 78
"The kitchen makes me want to start cooking, the acres of stainless steel bench too just begging to be used".
Jeffrey Booth, Slow Magazine, June 2012
