Mayfield Bay Beach Shack

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Mayfield Bay Beach Shack - The quintessential Tasmanian Beach Shack experience. With it's absolute beach frontage onto Great Oyster Bay, the Mayfield Bay Beach Shack is the ideal spot to base yourself when exploring the magnificent East Coast of Tasmania. It is an easy 90 minute drive from either Launceston or Hobart and a short distance to Swansea, a regional centre. The Shack offers complete privacy in apartment style accommodation for a couple with uninterrupted views stretching from Freycinet & The Hazards to the north to Christmas Island to the south. A further 2 bedrooms downstairs are ideal for children and there is a separate sitting room downstairs complete with TV & DVD player. The Shack is quirky and has a quaint kitchen offering everything for the seasoned cook, while the full size gas barbeque with wok burner will tempt the fisherman / chef ! The upstairs is open plan and has dining for 6 with views good enough to eat. The sitting room overlooks the beach and garden and has a solid fuel stove for those chilly Tassie evenings.

On the practical side, quality bed linen and towels are supplied along with a number of essentials, olive oil, tea, coffee, etc. If you are staying for a week or longer, we can supply a mid week clean for a modest extra charge.

Our nature bush block teems with native flora and fauna, we're spied echidnas and Tasmanian devils and too many birds to count. The beach is unspoilt and at times, deserted. You'll collect too many shells to carry home on your rambles.

If a long walk on the deserted beach is not your thing, curl up with a good book ( we have lots ! ), listen to some music, watch a movie, play cards, sketch, explore the garden and plan tonight's feast. Or jump in the car and discover the delights of our local vineyards, restaurants and foodie destinations, such as Bicheno and local seafood from Triabunna, Little Swanport or Spring Bay. There is lots to do in this part of the world.

Fantastic Family Friendly Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The perfect family getaway, we absolutely loved our stay with kids and grandparents.It was the perfect set up with grandparents sleeping upstairs and us and the kids downstairs, the owners have thought of everything and just a short 1.5 hr drive from Hobart and such a relaxing place, we cannot wait to come and stay again.

The perfect shack!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for 3 nights. The highlights; amazing views, comfortable beds, stocked with everything you might possibly need, and right on the beach. We loved browsing through the DVD and book collections, sipping coffee while watching amazing sunrises, going for a quick dip, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Only 10 minutes out of Swansea and about 30 minutes to Freycinet NP. Highly recommended!

Peaceful stay

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a couple of nights at the property. Has everything you would expect from a beach shack and a few extras. Loved having access to the ipod dock and I was impressed by the DVD selection but then I am a huge IT Crowd fan! Nice quiet spot with easy access to a beach that was mostly deserted and not far from a town with good eating and shopping facilities.
