Slow days start and finish here, come and see for yourself. Just sit for a while, time will pass, breathe, take in the salty air and just be, just be you. Breathtaking panoramic views from both the inside and outside of our 70’s beach house. Using our home as your base, no matter which direction you choose to venture, there’s an array of experiences and activities. 20 min from Hobart Airport, 40 min from Hobart, your gateway to Richmond, East Coast, Port Arthur and the Tasman Peninsula.
“Glenys Mary's house was the absolute highlight on a trip of many memorable Tasmania stays on a road trip with my parents. Driving up the hill and spotting the place was a pure delight, which only got better as you move through the house to see the astounding views. On booking the thought of having the sea vista shown in pictures seemed hard to believe, but it's far more amazing in person. The house itself is meticulously styled in a warm, inviting manner and has everything you could need, and Glenys Mary's easy going and communicative approach makes you wish every Airbnb experience was this good. As they say, we wish we could've stayed longer. A lot longer!”
Our guest cabin, 'Boatshed on Park' is just minutes from the water at Park Beach, a popular surf beach. The small but cosy cabin is separate from the main house and opens on to a private deck with great views of the beach. It has a comfortable double bed, fridge, microwave and TV. Your bathroom is located outside the room and you will have to go down a few steps from the deck to access it. Coffee and tea facilities and a light breakfast are included. Surfing equipment is available for guests.
“This is a great spot to sit on the verandah and watch the waves and surfers hard at it! The room is small but sufficient for two people with a comfortable bed, bedside tables and lamps, a small table and two chairs for dining if the weather is no good, a small fridge and freezer and microwave plus a BBQ outside so can easily cook a meal for yourselves. There was also a TV and DVD player but would rather look at the view. The beach is lovely to walk on with plenty of locals to say hello too. The bathroom was super clean and is only down a few steps from the bungalow. Would definitely go back again and would stay longer next time. We had dinner at the local Dodges Ferry hotel and the meals were delicious and priced really well. Karyl was friendly and made sure we had everything we needed (which included a small light breakfast of english muffins with butter & jams etc plus milk to go with your tea and coffee supplies also in the bungalow). Thanks Karyl.”
The rooms are in the lower floor of a 2 storey house, and include a bedroom, large bathroom, lounge area and cable TV. This lounge does have a fold down sofa which could be used as a bed for up to 2 people, and also has a single bed. Extra cost would be $10.00 per person over and above 2. The property is located in Primrose Sands, a beach suburb which is on the route to the popular tourist spot of Port Arthur. Primrose Sands is 45 minutes from Hobart City and 30 minutes from Hobart Airport.
“We stayed 2 nights as a family of 3 and were very pleased with ALL aspects of our stay. Some aspects exceeding our expectations such as warm hospitality with the best home made muffins in the world, breakfast supplies and towels and face washes enough for everyone (unlike most hotels). Very comfortable bedding and we were never cold. One of the most beautiful beaches is just steps away. By far a high recommendation is in order here, the perfect base for exploring the region. Jeff and Liz's place (and Sophie!!) is very spacious, comfortable and safe. Prepare to be wowed!”
