Bella Costa - Bay of Fires

Bedrooms 1
Space 107 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Situated just meters from the beach, with stunning views of the Bay of Fires!

Previously known as Dotril Cottage in the Character Cottages complex, Bella Costa has now been beautifully renovated into a stylish 1 bedroom holiday apartment, with brand new kitchen and bathroom, also featuring updated decor throughout. You are literally a stones throw from the pure white sand and the pristine aqua waters of Binalong Bay beach.

The apartment features a queen sized bed perfect for couples, in a generous room with adjoining bathroom and an open plan kitchen and lounge area with inbuilt laundry, leading to a deck out the front.

You really can’t be more centrally located, Bella Costa is within easy walking distance of Grants Lagoon, the boat ramp and gulch, Bay of Fires Eco Tours, the viewing platform and of course Lichen restaurant and the main beach are just meters away.

Sit back and relax on the deck with a good book and watch the world go by, stroll the soft sandy beach or enjoy an exhilarating boat ride. The water is so pristine and clear, the resident skates and dolphins which frequent the bay can easily be seen from the comfort of Bella Costa. Perhaps during whales season you may even be lucky enough to spot a mother and calf playing as they bond on their return journey south.

About Alisha Roper

Hi there, I'm a born and bred Tasmanian who's passionate about our great state, in particular the Bay of Fires Coastline. I've done a lot of travelling but I always love coming home to little old Tassie!!

As well as running Bella Costa, I along with my husband and parents, also own Bay of Fires Eco Tours, a tour boat company showcasing the spectacular Bay of Fires Coastline, which stretches nearly 30kms north from Binalong Bay.

Alisha Roper purchased this house in 2016

Why Alisha Roper chose Binalong Bay

Tassie really is a magical place and regardless of whether you want to get out on the water, walk the pristine white sandy beaches or just laze on the sand, you can't get much closer or a much better view that Bella Costa.

Beautiful accommodation and location!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location with amazing views but its not just about the location!

Bella Costa looked like the perfect holiday location on the internet but you never actually know what to expect until you arrive. I can honestly say that this cottage is perfect in every way, it is beautifully presented and we did not want for anything.

The cottage was a home away from home, well maintained, spotlessly clean with everything you could ever wish for in the kitchen, even a full sized fridge/freezer!

We would like to thank Alisha, Christine and David for such a wonderful realxing stay, it was perfect! You should all be very proud of what you have accomplished. It is one of the most beautiful and relaxing holidays we have ever had, so ........... we shall see you again next year!!

Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional cottage sitting on the hillside overlooking Binalong Bay. We enjoyed a lovely sunset from the balcony and enjoyed an early morning winter sunrise just a short stroll from the property. The cottage itself was immaculately presented and very very comfortable. The owners have thought of everything, from the kitchenware to the towels and bedding. We were warm and cosy and able to appreciate the view and surroundings from Bella Costa. We met the owners at the Eco Tours office on the waterfront, they were friendly and helpful and had a genuine warmth about them. It was a pleasure to stay at Bella Costa and we are happy in the knowledge that we supported a lovely and local family in their business. We would most definitely love to return!!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous cottage style property with amazing views. Comfortable and homely decor. The home owners who live next door were very friendly and helpful. We got in quite late but didn't have trouble finding the property with some helpful directions for the property owners. Would highly recommend.
