Fully self-contained cottage located in the beautiful East Coast town of Bicheno. Sleeps up to five people in two separate bedrooms. Only 200mts to the glorious white sandy beach & penguin rookeries. Stunning views over Diamond Island as well as the pristine coastline.

The space
Providing a virtual waterfront location, 'The Retreat' provides quiet, comfortable, self-contained accommodation in an idyllic setting, 3 klm from the east coast township of Bicheno.
Accommodation at 'The Retreat' consists of 1 queen size bed, 1 single bed and 2 single bunk beds.
Linen, doonas, pillows, blankets and towels are provided.
The laundry has a washing machine and dryer.
Take a short stroll across the open paddock then through the gate, past the penguin burrows to the beach and sparkling water. At low tide you can venture across the sand bar to visit Diamond Island, which is a protected sanctuary for the Fairy Penguins.

Swim the crystal clear water, surf Redbill beach, explore the rock pools, sift through the seashells, sunbathe in the sand dunes or just relax on the spacious deck at 'The Retreat' with a glass of chilled Tasmanian wine. If you are lucky you may spot dolphins playfully frolicking in the shelter of Diamond Island or perhaps even whales on their migration down the East Coast of Tasmania.

Guest access
Fully self-contained two bedroom cottage. All linen (incl. towels), kitchen crockery, cutlery & utensils are provided.
Access to the beach is via two gates; one directly in front of the Retreat and the second at the bottom of the paddock. Guests are advised to avoid any access through the Resort next door.

Other things to note
OBTAINING ACCESS:
As we don't live on-site, once payment is made we will send you instructions and the code for the keysafe located at the front door containing the key.

Location

Bicheno, Tasmania, Australia

Stunning beach holiday destination. Many eating options but most have seasonal opening hours. So if you anticipate a late arrival, it would be best to self cater.
