Cooee Beach Federation Cottage Burnie

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Wake up to the sound of the waves only 50 short metres away. Located 2 minutes drive from the centre of Burnie, the Cooee Beach Federation Cottage is one of Cooee's oldest residences and was originally the Cooee postmaster's house.

With a traditional bull nose verandah, high Baltic ceilings & bay windows, 3 comfy bedrooms, brand new double glazed windows throughout, lounge, sun soaked kitchen & dining room & private outdoor BBQ area, guests will immediately feel relaxed & at home.

Cooee Beach is simply stunning with its white sand & clear water and with a westerly Table Cape back drop makes a wonderful place to enjoy the sunsets. The beach is also home to a large penguin colony which can be seen at dusk as they return to their burrows.

Cooee also has a variety of bar & dining options within 2 minutes walk - from pizza to the locally acclaimed bowls club bar.

Generous discounts apply to the property for bookings greater than 7 days.

Don't waste your holiday packing & unpacking - stay for a few nights & explore

A great base to explore the best of what the North West Coast has to offer! The Cooee Beach Federation Cottage is ideally situated for a 3 to 5 day stay as you can use it as a base to explore places of interest including Cradle Mountain, the historic fishing village of Stanley, Penguin, Boat Harbour Beach, Table Cape (tick the Tollymore scenic drive off your bucket list) & Sheffield (famed mural town).

The town & surrounds of Burnie also has so much to offer with its whiskey distillery tours, Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden & renowned Makers Workshop, where you can taste our soft cheeses & speak with the resident artists & craftspeople.

Looking for a smaller private getaway for the corporate traveller or romantic?

Cooee Beach Cottages also has 2 lovely smaller fully self contained cottages at the rear called Oystercatcher & Sandpiper that are ideally suited to couples, with good views of Cooee Beach with private decks. Combined with the Albatross this property also suits larger groups wether for corporate or family reunion stays! Both these cottages are also on Stayz.

Great location but dirty and damp

  • 2 of 5

Lovely location and was great to explore the surroundings. The house itself was very poorly cleaned and the main bedroom especially was very damp and uncomfortable. The kitchen draws were full of grime and there was mould in some of the glasses. No apology from the owner when we tried to tell them about the problems.

Owner's Response: Hi Kate We have looked at when you booked which was 6 months ago. Unfortunately you advised us of the issue after you had left and our cleaner went in strait away & addressed the issue. 1 teaspoon in the cutlery drawer was found to have been put in there by the previous guests - very frustrating to see this as we take great pride in our properties. Our new cleaners are very thorough and work to a checklist to ensure that issues like this will not occur in the future. Alan & Allison

Good property in central Burnie

  • 3 of 5

We had a good couple of days in Burnie: less than 90 minutes from Cradle Mt, we saw platypus in the river and baby penguins at arms length. The house has character and is cosy. It is close to the beach, but it is also close to the main road so there is some traffic noise. The kitchen was a bit basic: perhaps a bit over priced, but otherwise convenient and comfortable.

Good for a small group

  • 3 of 5

Cottage had a nice character and reasonably close to the tourist attractions we wanted to see like Table Cape at Wynyard, The Nut at Stanley and Penguin.

There is only 1 bathroom and a small kitchen which only had 6 chairs in the dining room and we had a large group (8 people), which wasn't ideal. Also, the glass door to the shower wasn't practical, as the water kept on spilling onto the floor, making it slippery.

It's an ideal accommodation for a smaller group.
