Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Cove Cottage is a delightful four bedroom residence lying just across the road from Medeas Cove. It combines relaxing old world charm with modern convenience. The sleeping accommodation consists of two upstairs bedrooms, one of which contains a queen size bed and the other two singles. For the convenience of guests who prefer not to navigate stairs there are an additional two bedrooms downstairs with a similar sleeping configuration. The living area is open plan and has full cooking facilities and a small bar refrigerator. There is a shower room on the lower level and an external laundry with washing machine, trough and full sized fridge-freezer. The level garden is large enough to park a boat and at least two cars with room left over for a family cricket match. A gas BBQ and outdoor setting are also a useful addition to this area.

A gentle twenty minute walk takes you to the centre of St Helens where you can explore the shops and meet the friendly locals or have fish and chips and a glass of wine at the marina.

St Helens is the game fishing capital of Tasmania and a short drive will take you to numerous local attractions like Binalong Bay and The Bay of Fires which present some of the most outstanding scenery the island has to offer.

Stunning Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this cottage! The history and antique touches in the cottage were stunning and the children loved exploring their rooms. We had plenty of room and the beds were all comfortable. The one thing I would change would be to fill in the bathroom door holes with wood filler. Everything else was perfect, we only wish we had more time to stay longer!

Cove Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a six night stay at Cove Cottage in April 2017. The cottage is in a great location with a pleasant walk into St Helens. It is well appointed and clean. As we were a couple the issue of one bathroom was not an issue (although if 8 people stayed it may well be). The only issues we had were the shower head leaks water from the top, the fridge in the kitchen should probably be replaced or attended to(was in need of a big defrost which took us 2 days). Also the next door neighbour has an alarm for kangaroos which went off twice a night.
