About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and separate toilet. Large, open-plan kitchen, living and dining room. Separate laundry.

Located a short 5 minute drive to the town of Swansea or a 20 minute walk along the beach.

Description

East Coast Retreat is the perfect escape to relax and enjoy the stunning views across Great Oyster Bay from Freycinet National Park to Shouten Island and Maria Island.

Let the sounds of the waves gently lapping at the shore lull you off to sleep. Sleep peacefully in a property which enjoys the best of a bush setting with gum trees behind the house and the beach right in front of the house. Awake to the glorious colours of sunrise over the water and marvel at the changing colours of the mountains of Freycinet National Park throughout the day. All this can be viewed from the main bedroom or the living area. A perfect way to be inspired by nature and allow yourself to feel rested and rejuvenated. Step outside the gate directly onto the beach.

Enjoy a coffee from the Breville Nespresso Creatista coffee machine. Let the dishwasher take care of all the dishes and enjoy cooking on a brand new Bosch induction cooktop and fully programmable oven.

A delightful open plan kitchen, dining and living room with views on 3 sides allows the magic of nature inside for you to enjoy all year round. Open all the doors in summer to let the sea breeze in or curl up by the fire and enjoy the views in cosy comfort.

Location better than photos!

  • 5 of 5

Finally a location that exceeds expectations and puts photos to shame! Lovely house with private beach access cutting right through a tall dune...then view of Freycinet area that seems closer than it is. Great movie and board game collection made up for no wifi....but didn't need anyways with all the beach walking and Loontitetermairrelehoiner Track in Swansea was short with great view payoff...love the name! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four + dog had a wonderful week enjoying the beach and relaxing on the deck with fantastic water views.

The house was very clean and well equipped, which helped to make our stay enjoyable. A lovely location which we will return to another day!

Perfect Family down time!

  • 5 of 5

In the middle of our busy vacation, 4 days together at this beautifully appointed house were a true refuge for our family. So many great and practical amenities from games, DVDs to kitchen bonuses like espresso and popcorn machines! A beach out the front door that was practically private with loads of wildlife and a location convenient to area site-seeing made this an excellent spot!

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4 time at East Coast Retreat and again it was wonderful. Visiting in the cooler months was just as enjoyable as summer and also perfect for our dogs. This time we brought a friend who was thoroughly delighted. Thank you again for a lovely experience.
