Об этом жилье
Live like a local in our "best kept secret" Tassie seaside holiday community- peace, tranquillity, stunning water views by the beach. Explore, fish, relax,walk or have fun with the family friends & kids-sleeps 8 in comfort plus new kitchen.
Comfortably sleeping 8, we offer a fab place for families, couples or a party of friends alike. We have installed a brand new kitchen and there is a large wrap around deck to sit and enjoy the views, whatever the weather.
There is a 2 night minimum booking ( 3 nights on long weekends).
As you can see from the pictures there is a strong tradition of the "shack" in Tasmania- dating from the early 1900's families have established seaside homes to relax kick back and spend time with their families...usually made with leftover timber and recycled goodies from the family home, some are now so loved they are a national icon, and even heritage listed!
Reflecting their owners with affectionately given names like "Pops Place" this is a community built over generations ..we just love it here- and want to share a family place that would rarely be discovered by tourists as it is well off the beaten track.
Whilst we are surrounded by these little home made old beauties we have made our newly extended larger house much more comfortable and luxurious so that you are definitely not "roughing it!"...
There is a queen bedroom upstairs with ocean views, two singles in rear bedroom with bush views, bathroom, separate toilet, fully equipped kitchen to cook up a storm, with a stove and a microwave and all the basics you will need for your stay. Breakfast is not provided as we are not at the location.
Southport Pub nearby does great counter meals if you decide not to cook, and of course you can buy beer and wine there too. If you want to take the 20 minute drive to Dover, you can dine at the Dover Wood Fired pizza for the best pizza in Southern Tasmania.
Downstairs is a double bedroom, a single and a bunk bed, with a brand new bathroom.
There is a secure front lawn area with plenty of room to park your car and your boat. We even have a mooring if you want to hitch your boat to it and use our dinghy to row out to your boat. Remember to bring your life jackets as we are unable to supply them.
Some of the comforts include:
Wood fire to watch the mesmerising glow of a log fire on chilly nights- you can't beat a real fire.
Laundry facilities down in the garage and you can line dry your clothes on the line provided near the downstairs access.
Pure cotton luxury bed linen and towels with natural handmade soap from Tasmania's iconic Beauty and the bees skincare brand.
Your own "tinny" as we Tasmanians call a dinghy (with oars only) to explore the bay or drop a fishing line for some fathead.
If you have your own boat, Southport has an all weather/ all tide boat ramp and is the main launching point for Southern diving locations, cray fishing and game fishing for destinations such as the Friars, Actaeon Islands and the magnificent Pedre Branca. There is good fishing and cray fishing in the sheltered waters of Southport Bay. If you are adventurous, on a low tide, you might be lucky to get some abalone from the rocks around Southport Isand or oysters from the rocks near the boat ramp.Make sure you pick up your fishing licence from Service Tasmania. Check with Service Tasmania as to which licences you may require.
If 4 guests book- the top floor only is available, more than 4 guests, the whole house. Please note that there is external access only to the two downstairs bedrooms and bathroom. This may not suit a family
Общение с гостями
This is our own holiday home, but we live elsewhere so we do not often get to see guests- but are on the mobile and email if you need us. Warning: there is limited coverage for mobile phones and internet. Try putting your phone on the window ledge! If need to make a phone call, there is a public phone booth by the jetty.
If you make a booking we will send you a comprehensive information sheet about the house so that you know everything you need to know before you arrive.
If you wish to bring a pet you will need to contact the owner. We have a lock up garage with a small kennel. We do not permit pets in the house.
We live in Tasmania, Australia. My husband and I run a small business in a small rural town in the Huon Valley. We have two adult sons, an old cat and a spoilt dog called Dougal plus various farm animals depending on the season. We love to eat good food and wine and are interested in all cuisines. I am a passionate cook and always keen to try new experiences. We enjoy exploring new places. We are keen fishermen and enjoy time on the water catching a few fish and, if we are lucky, some crayfish.
