The Mariner looks out upon the Tasman Sea in the coastal hamlet of Falmouth, around halfway between the Bay of Fires and the Freycinet Peninsula. Wake to the sound of the waves upon the shore outside your window and take in the peace and refreshment of being by the sea.

The space
Imagine standing up on deck, the sea breeze in your hair and the waves rolling below. Your gaze is upon the tossing waters, the seabirds wheeling overhead, and the glimmering horizon beyond. Every sensation is of the ocean – the salt air, the sound of the waves, the great blue sea.

Except this isn’t the deck of a ship; rather, a Scandinavian-inspired oceanfront hideaway nestled on the eastern coastline of Tasmania. Meet the Mariner.

Sandy beaches for taking a dip or surfing are a short walk from the house, which is itself situated on a rocky ocean shoreline. Bring your fishing gear, grab a good book or explore the hidden beaches and coves of Falmouth. And if you’re feeling more adventurous, all the wonders of the east coast of Tasmania are within easy driving distance.

** Special Offer: Enjoy a bubbly welcome with a complimentary chilled bottle of Tasmanian sparkling wine to enjoy upon arrival **

** Art Stays available May - Sept | Keep reading for details **

ART STAYS @ THE MARINER

Take your appreciation of the coastal environment to the next level during your stay at The Mariner, with an on-site art class with your host, professional artist and arts educator Kerri.

Explore your creative potential in a relaxed, stimulating environment along with your family and friends, or indulge in a one-on-one lesson by the sea.

Classes will focus on creating drawings and/or small watercolour or acrylic paintings on paper or board, inspired by investigation of the coastline surrounding The Mariner. Materials and on-site studio access are provided during class time.

Guests with all levels of artistic experience are welcome to participate, and classes can be tailored to suit everyone from beginners to practicing artists. We offer our Art Stays between May - September.

Choose from either one or two 3x hour sessions, held from 10am – 1pm on chosen days during your stay:

• Single Session - $60^ per person: Loosen up with a series of quick drawing exercises in the studio, before heading out to the foreshore to soak up inspiration for a final artwork to be undertaken during the second part of the lesson.
• Double Session (over 2 days) - $90^ per person: On day one, work through a program of improvisational drawing exercises in the studio, learning about observation and technique. On day two, take a guided coastal walk around Falmouth for inspiration (weather permitting), working en plein air before returning to the studio to complete your artwork.

^ Prices exclude applicable Airbnb service fees & charges
