Thalia Haven: unique oceanfront retreat

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Thalia offers a special experience for those seeking a dramatic, private, wild experience on Tasmania's East Coast. From a rocky headland overlooking crystal clear seas, enjoy your own private white sand beach and stone house an hour's drive from Hobart airport. Breakfast provisions and a well-stocked pantry are provided free of charge.

Thalia is located on Great Oyster Bay, one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world. Mid-way between Orford and Swansea, the East Coast's many pleasures (Wineglass Bay, Maria Island, the Douglas-Apsley National Park, the East Coast wineries, the penguins at Bicheno) are pleasant day trips from Thalia.

Ready to relax, explore, enjoy in a unique, wild setting? You don't need magic to disappear. All you need is a destination.

Privacy, comfort, luxury, room to play

Thalia is set on the sea on 130 acres of coastal bushland which include 4 km of coastline and your own private white sand beach. Thalia is off the beaten track: you are miles from the nearest road and from the nearest neighbour. Thalia is off the grid: power is from the sun and wind, both of which provide ample energy for a host of comforts. Four separate pavilions allow for plenty of space to relax together, or apart. There's a sauna, outdoor bath, and outdoor shower overlooking Great Oyster Bay. Bedrooms are equipped with king-sized beds with custom-made duvets. Every room offers sweeping ocean views. The house is built from ancient stone, wonderful to sleep in.

You will have the whole house to yourself. That includes the central living, kitchen and dining rooms along with 4 bedrooms. Both the living and kitchen/dining rooms have large open fireplaces. The kitchen comes fully equipped for those who love to cook.


Stayz adds a 2% surcharge to guests booking with a credit card.

The perfect escape. Isolated yet very comfortable with creature comforts. Open fires, unbeatable scenery, be sure to go for a night stroll on the beach and star gaze and soak up nature and serenity.

The place is well set up for a group although the main pavilion's bedroom is open to the living area and kitchen. The other pavilions are great too but only one has an ensuite so two of the pavilions require a journey outside to get to a toilet.

The owner Susan will give great instructions and hints about groceries and directions. We found the experience of dining in and cooking on the woodbfire to be fantastic - much better than dining out so have some meat for an outdoor BBQ (wood fire) handy or anything else you desire - local oysters are superb.
