Private, peaceful, luxurious, and totally unique. Just a ten minute stroll to the beach, and beautifully located on a secluded bush-covered acre overlooking a nature reserve teeming with wildlife, this modern, state-of-the-art, solar-powered house is naturally warm and cosy in winter, but fresh and cool throughout summer. Early check in and late checkout available with all bookings. 20% discount for 7 nights or more. More detailed information on our website thesolarhomeproject dot com.

The space
On the private veranda there's a huge two-person bath which can be filled each evening with steaming-hot pure Tasmanian rainwater, and the view is an unblemished vista of whispering she-oak and flowering tea-tree, with the constantly soothing sound of the ocean in the background, plus half a dozen curious wallabies grazing on the front lawn each evening under the clearest night sky you're likely to see anywhere in the world. There's also a wood-fired pizza oven, a romantic outdoor firepit, and a large gas BBQ for your convenience.

Inside there's an emission-free ethanol fire for additional warmth and ambiance on cold winter nights, plus a flat screen DVD player, a library of more than 200 DVDs, over 100 books, and fast free wireless internet. The large main bedroom has a king-size bed and French doors opening onto a veranda looking out over the private nature reserve, while the second bedroom contains two comfy single beds. European-style hardwood-framed windows and doors are all triple-glazed and fully screened.

The fully equipped kitchen includes an induction glass cook top, a (small) convection/microwave oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, DeLonghi coffee machine, toaster, and stainless steel cookware. In the spacious bathroom there's a walk-in shower and stylish Tasmanian Oak vanity bench.

And it's healthy, with a constant supply of fresh air provided by the passive ventilation system, and natural materials with non-toxic finishes throughout. Most importantly, the house's unique ultra-low-energy design, combined with energy-efficient heat pumps powering a reverse-cycle air conditioner, helps it maintain a comfortable internal temperature between 20 and 26°C, no matter what the temperature outside.

Where you’ll be

Greens Beach, Tasmania, Australia

Greens Beach is one of Tasmania's best kept secrets - a small settlement at the mouth of the Tamar River at the northern end of the Tamar Valley, Tasmania's premier wine growing region. It's surrounded by some of Australia's most spectacular coastal walks and unspoilt secluded beaches and is only an hour's drive from Launceston airport, which is less than an hour's flight from Melbourne, or a couple of hours from Sydney.

There's an uncrowded, sheltered swimming beach, a picturesque nine-hole golf course, public tennis courts, friendly locals, and access to a beautiful coastal trail through Narawntapu National Park, containing several even more secluded beaches. And there's an abundance of unique native wildlife. In fact, much to the delight of international visitors, kangaroos really do hop down the main street.

Greens Beach is also the perfect base to explore northern Tasmania, with several internationally renowned vineyards within thirty minutes scenic drive. It's less than two hour's drive to one of Australia's top-ten golf courses at Barnbougle, plus dozens of national park walking trails through some of the world's most pristine wilderness areas. So a week at Greens Beach can be as relaxing or adventurous as you like.
