About the property

Designed by award winning architects, 9-Mile Escape has all you need and more. The views will amaze you; from the open plan living area, the main deck, both bedrooms and the private main bedroom deck you can gaze at uninterrupted views over beautiful Great Oyster Bay to Tasmania's iconic Hazards & Freycinet National Park. Fronting the pristine waters & sands of Nine Mile Beach, with Swansea a mere 20 minute beach stroll away (or 5 minutes by car) you have easy access to the town's top quality dining experiences, gallery, shops & recreational facilities. But why would you want to leave? Revel in the symphony of sunset's colours, then the stunning display of stars, & all the while the waves provide your lullaby. The perfect location to relax or explore the sunny East Coast with its wineries, oyster & berry farms, world renowned National Parks, secluded beaches & delightful historic towns. With so much to experience right on your doorstep, one night is not enough.


The East Coast of Tasmania is known as Tassie's 'Sunshine Coast', and has roads that rival the mainland's Great Ocean Road, with an endless array of delightful historic towns, stunning beaches, wineries and recreational facilities. Swansea is a fantastic town, just big enough to ensure top quality dining and everything you need but small enough to be friendly and quaint. Swansea has been awarded the title of 'Australia's Tidiest Town'! There are great restaurants, galleries, a golf course, tennis courts, bowls club, scenic walks, coffee shops, supermarket, general store, RSL club, DVD/video rentals, internet venues, sports ground, berry farm and liquor outlets.


This property will not disappoint; it is designed by award winning architects and has everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen with gas cooktop, microwave, convection oven, grill, fridge, Italian coffee machine (coffee, tea, sugars, syrups etc. supplied), laundry facilities, decks, absolute beachfront, bush views to the rear, degree controlled hot water, big plasma TV, the list goes on and on.

Beautiful position

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at nine mile escape, it is a very beautiful spot & very private & peaceful. However, we were disappointed at not being able to use the bbq on the deck(maybe a cover would help) or the outdoor area as they were very dirty & dusty & would have required some valuable holiday time to clean. We also had to clean the gas cook top burner head before using as it wouldn't ignite due to the amount of oil & food build up. Maybe a professional clean after every occupant??????

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Matt. Sorry to hear that you found the outside areas dusty. Being a rural area and largely exposed to the elements, the two outdoor BBQ spots occasionally get a bit dusty from the sea breezes. The house is professionally cleaned after each guest, though the cleaner doesn't routinely check each of the gas burners on the stove. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I hope you had a pleasant stay.

Our weekend away at Nine Mile Escape was amazing. There is every creature comfort that you could require and at your front door the most beautiful scenery money can’t buy. So lovely to find a place that welcomes your fur babies too! We will definitely be back and the only thing we would change is that we will stay for longer!

Perfect Beach Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have used lots of Stayz & Air B'n'B places & this is the best by far. The house was very clean & had all the comforts. The pictures don't do it justice. It is beautifully setup with everything you need & the kids loved watching movies in the full surround sound (on the one rainy day we had).

We couldn't have been happier & we'll be back for sure. We're already in planning for our next trip in November 2017!!!

We loved our stay at nine mile escape. Really wished we could stay longer. The man cave is the best BBQ / chill spot I've ever seen. Inside is very clean and tidy and has almost everything you will need. Scott the owner was very helpful when we had minor problems help was a phone call away.

Owner's Response: Thanks Alan. That outdoor area is a favorite for lots of folks (and I just upgraded the TV in there too!). Happy to have you stay any time.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Scott was immediately available for queries; great location, wonderful relaxing stay with kids and dogs. A few things would make it near perfect - grass or non-sandy track to beach so don't trek so much sand inside; a privacy lock on the bathroom door; and an oven

Owner's Response: Thanks Peter, So glad you had a good time. ...and for reminding me to note in our arrival instructions that the microwave is a convection model - so it can work just like a (small) oven - and of course, there's the gas stove and BBQs. We look forward to having you stay again.

Brilliant location

  • 4 of 5

Location is amazing with this property, which is right on the beach. It has been built on stilts to gain the best view possible. There is a small deck which overlooks the view and is the perfect place to spend time just relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the ocean. There is an outdoor entertaining area, although we didn't end up using that but it would be perfect for a family and fantastic for summer nights.

The property was very clean and thick luscious towels in the bathroom. A full size fridge which was excellent. There is not a conventional oven, but a convection microwave. That's ok but plan your meals accordingly. Good set of crockery and cutlery and all very clean, although there were some very random items in the cupboards like an old aluminum pot, which probably needs tossing out. We couldn't find any cloths for wiping benches so had to use tea towels. These are very minor things though.

All communication with the owner was excellent. He was available at all times to answer questions and I was never kept waiting for anything. From start to finish, his communication was above standard and we really appreciated it.

It is a really quiet property which we thoroughly enjoyed. Minimal traffic passing and the house is set far away from the road so it was rare for us to hear any noise at all. It was also very easy to find and we were given excellent directions.

A very nice property in a fantastic location so would be more than happy to revisit this place.
