Captains Rest is my haven of peace and serenity in a stunning secluded slice of the West Coast World Heritage Area.

The space
Captains Rest is our special spot for 2. Our bed looks out the antique windows to the water — as does our restored clawfoot bath. She's cozy with everything we need to luxuriate, and the Nectre wood stove keeps us cozy.

Guest access
Captains Rest is all yours, and the space around it is shared by all our fellow shack owners. Sometimes the area around our shack is quite, sometimes its a hive of fishing, photography, boat building and community.

Feel free to respectfully use the space around the cabin and the jetty in front of her, its a great spot for a morning coffee or a sunset wine. If you spot a fisherman coming in with a catch, they will usually always sell you a fresh fish, just make sure he cleans it up for you!

Other things to note
Please note, Captains Rest is not suitable for children or pets due to the delicate nature of its furnishings, and the hazards of the water out front.

We also only have a step in claw foot bath — so this listing might not suit those who prefer to shower or have mobility issues.

It is essential for our guests to have travel insurance. Very occasionally, during the winter months roads can close temporarily due to snow or ice disrupting travel plans. As this is a travel issue rather than an issue with our listing, we don't issue refunds or extend stays due to usually being fully booked — and recommend you contact your insurer to assist with the cost of disrupted travel arrangements.

We stock a basic pantry due to our remote nature, which includes: Ground Coffee Beans, Black and Green Teas, Salt, Pepper & Olive Oil. Please pop in to a shop for your supplies and milk if you take it! Guests find it hard to leave once they arrive, so we recommend you do this in Hobart or Launceston before you arrive, or swing past the local IGA on your way.

Amenities in our minimal kitchen include a 2 burner stove, a small oven, a bar fridge and freezer, kettle and toaster. We have a plunger coffee maker and a stovetop — you choose!

We are all about soaking it up. Walk in the forest next to Captains Rest, swim in the water, fires on the beach and long nights reading in front of the fire. Watch the night stars reflect on the water, and listen on the bird songs upon awakening.

Lettes Bay Historical village itself is a hive of wild west coast activity in summer, and almost abandoned in winter. We love both equally.
