Beach Haven - Dolphin Sands

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

This beautiful 2 bedroom property is situated just a stone's throw from unspoilt 9 Mile Beach, with private access via the front of the property.

Just 12.5 kms from the picturesque township of Swansea, where a variety of eating establishments, local art/craft shops and fully stocked general store are ready and waiting.

Approx 150 kms from Hobart and Launceston (1.5-2 hrs drive), Beach Haven is the perfect base for day trips to other beauty spots along the east coast of Tasmania, such as Coles Bay & the Freycinet Peninsula, Bicheno, Friendly Beaches and the world renowned Bay of Fires. As well as a wonderful array of options for fresh produce, such as seafood, fruit and world class wines.

The premises is 2 bedroom, set up with a Queen sized bed and the second bedroom furnished with a Queen size bed and single bed. A bed divan sofa in the living room provides another option for a double bed. Portacot is available on request.

The Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking for yourselves, or storing/reheating food that you purchase in your travels.

Should you wish to cook, we have the following available for your use (other than the usual oven and fridge, of course!):

Microwave Oven

Bread Maker

Slow Cooker


Magimix Food Processor

Sandwich Press

The Bathroom has all the standard amenities...sink...toilet...shower....but, even better, it has a corner spa as well! We pledge to keep a healthy stockpile of scented candles on hand, for those romantic moments...and maybe a megaphone, to use to get the kids out of the bath! ;)

The Living Area is comfortable, light and airy, with a stylish woodburner for those colder nights/days and a fully stocked woodpile to keep the flames burning.

There is a fully stocked bookshelf, with a wide variety of authors and titles, for the kids and the grown-ups staying with us, as well as a collection of DVDs to suit a variety of tastes, including well known children's titles.

We have a variety of toys for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers, as well as board games for older kids and a healthy stock of paper, colouring in books and pencils/crayons. We know how much kids love playing with different toys (those that aren't theirs!) and hope these provide happy playing time and, subsequently, happy relaxing time for parents/carers too.

Outdoors, we have furniture on the deck for your comfort and for the purpose of eating outdoors. We also have a viewing platform, less than a dozen steps from the front door, where you can sit and admire the beautiful a book, sip a glass of wine.

Unfortunately, we are unable to supply any inflatable water equipment or watercraft, for safety and liability reasons.

Great place to stay with the family

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, everything a family needed. Quite location that was close to Swansea and tourist locations. Loved having access to a beach through the sand dunes. Would defently visit again if we head to Tasmania for another holiday.

Comfortable and well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

It's lucky that this place is comfortable and well-equipped, with plenty of things for the kids to do, as we were pummeled by gale force winds throughout our stay. The whole place literally shook! Still, the atmosphere indoors was lovely and I suspect, given the right weather conditions, the location would be great too. The picture of the beach in the photo is a bit deceptive as you can't actually see the beach from the property although it's not too far to walk.

Fantastic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had two wonderful nights at the Beach Haven. We especially appreciated the floor to ceiling window fronts of the lounge room, the fire place and the spacious outside deck area. The surrounding is exceptional: peacefully located at the beautiful Nine Mile Beach. Kitchen was well equipped, bathroom had a nice spa bath and the beds were comfy. Highly recommended!

Brilliant getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beach Haven at Dolphin Sands is the most beautiful getaway place. Perfect for either a romantic getaway or a family break. Everything that you could think of is provided. A beautiful position in the middle of nature. Just steps from the beach. I would return in a heartbeat!!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property, real well equipped with everything one could possibly need and set in stunning surroundings. The house sits just behind a protective sand dune, the other side of which is pretty much a private beach. We saw barely another soul on the beach during our entire stay which was blissful and we had an uninterrupted view of the Hazards rising up in Freycinet National Park!

A perfect place to come and get away from and relax, reconnect and enjoy the beauty of East Tasmania. Coles Bay is less than an hours drive so the house is also a great base from which to explore amazing places like wineglass bay by cruise boat and freycinet national park! We will most definitely come back.
