Beachside - Beauty Point. A unique holiday home on the Tamar River

Bedrooms 3
Space 4,305 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

After a day sight-seeing in Northern Tasmania or wine-touring the Tamar Valley, there is little better than relaxing on Beachside’s front porch and enjoying the view.

Overlooking the Tamar River and set in a lovely garden of native and heirloom plants, Beachside is a unique Cape Cod styled home; picturesque and perfect for a quiet getaway or small celebration event.

Built in 1950 and lovingly maintained, the decor and furnishings are in keeping with that era, while gentle renovations provide modern appliances and conveniences in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The spacious galley kitchen is designed with the foodie in mind. You'll be "cooking with gas" on the stove, baking perfectly in the electric oven or wood firing pizzas in the wood-burning stove. There are a range of cooking appliances in the cupboards and a lot of platters and serving utensils in the deep drawers for those who would like to entertain a large group or host a celebration or event.

Three living areas provide generous personal space for guests and 180 degree views of the deep water harbour of the Tamar River just across the road.

The open-plan lounge has a large comfortable couch, big screen LCD TV, DVD player, wood heater, and reverse-cycle air-conditioner.

The sunroom has informal dining overlooking the river and fabulous 1960s armchairs for relaxing in with a glass of wine or a good book.

The formal dining boasts a rustic 8-10 seat teak dining table and high-backed chairs, and two comfortable armchairs for enjoying listening to LP’s or sipping port by the big open fireplace.

The 3 upstairs bedrooms are expansive, all with water views. Standard configuration is 3 beds (1xDB, 2x QB) for up to 6 people, however a convertible sofa in the front room offers a comfortable bed for an additional 2 people if required.

At Beachside, everything you need for a self-contained stay is provided: linen and towels; all kitchen utensils and appliances; wi-fi internet; general pantry items, and liquid soaps in the showers and by basins.

All you need to bring is clothes and food - for those nights where you don't get fish and chips or wander to one of the pubs for a delicious counter meal on the water…


Beauty Point is an excellent place to relax and recharge, with all of the town's amenities and attractions a short walk or drive from Beachside's front door.

- Wine and dine the Tamar Valley Wine Route

- Learn about our natural environment at Seahorse World and Platypus House

- Discover history at the Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre

- Take long walks along Bass Strait on the white expanse of Greens Beach

- Enjoy evening BBQs across the road on the river

- Fishing and boating from Beauty Point wharf

- All of the attractions of Launceston such as Cataract Gorge, QV Museum & Art Gallery, Stillwater, Penny Royal and the West Tamar Wetlands

- Farmers and collectibles markets in Launceston, Exeter and Evandale

- Day trips to both the east and the west of northern Tasmania. Latrobe, Deloraine, Sheffield, Devonport, Georgetown & Low Head, Bridport are all lovely drives through farmland and forests.


Beachside is very dog-friendly with 6ft barrier fencing enclosing the large, grassy backyard and a sizeable covered area including a big bed just at the back door.

Well-behaved canine family members are permitted inside downstairs, but not on furniture, as all of the floors are wood or tiles.


Non-peak season base rate of $150 per night is for two people sharing one bedroom.

Additional rooms $50 p/n each, catering for up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms.

Additional person after 6 is $25 p/n each.

Peak season rates vary based upon length of stay. Peak is over the summer and during holidays. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Beachside is professionally cleaned between guests. Guest contribution to cleaning is $50 per stay.


We use the HomeAway online payments system. HomeAway charges a service fee and administers the Refundable Damage Deposit (bond) of $250 per stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Marie, Thank you for being such wonderful guests! I hope your little dog had a ball too. I agree about the upstairs shower. The hot water service is on the same level and we can't work out why it's so poor. That's being looked at again in the next couple of weeks when we go home for our annual holiday and get some things fixed. You can imagine the list on a 67 year old house! Please feel very welcome to return to Beachside in future. Best, Shan

Excellent Property

  • 4 of 5

This comfortable gorgeous home is a real home away from home. With just about everything you need supplied. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beachside and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to other travellers heading to Tassie. As the nights were getting cooler during our stay we especially loved the wood fire. Thanks to Shan and her family for sharing this gem with us we will be back.

Defintely a gorgeous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Two nights was definitely not long enough. Such a beautiful place, thoroughly equipped, we did want for anything. The eclectic furniture and art work suits the home perfectly. So very spacious and comfortable.

Unique holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Beachside is a unique home, full of treasures. Downstairs there is lots of space, we had choices where to eat in the house! We only had 4 nights in Beauty Point, but there was plenty to do and could have stayed longer. Very comfortable

Beauty at the beachside

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the home was clean & nicely furnished. Plenty of room to make ourselves at home and a big yard out the back, and of course, that beautiful view at the front.

My only suggestion is: have a shower in the laundry downstairs, the water pressure is not effected!

Owner's Response: Casey, as guests looking for same / next day entry to our holiday home, your flexibility & communication throughout was second to none. I sincerely thank you and would welcome you back to Beachside any time. And I agree with you re the downstairs shower - it definitely has the best water pressure! Best, Shan
