Welcome to our Sandcastle, your home away from home.

Just five minutes north of the historic town of Swansea on the East Coast of Tasmania. Uninterrupted views across Great Oyster Bay of both Swansea and Freycinet National Park including The Hazards and Schouten Island. A fantastic base to explore this part of Tasmania.

Amazing outlook from a private, comfortable, fully self-contained beach front holiday house. The 3.5 acre property enjoys 55 meters of beach frontage, with only a narrow reserve between the house and the beach. Easy access along the path to what feels like your own private beach. The remainder of the property is set in bush and well away from others.

A holiday destination to relax, unwind and treat yourself to some quiet time. Stroll along the beach, collect some shells, enjoy the views from the veranda and deck, then fall asleep in the evening with the sound of waves lapping the shore.


The large open plan kitchen/dining/living area is on the first floor with access via an internal staircase or external ramp. You need to be upstairs to appreciate the view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "This place is truly a slice of heaven" "The views are stunning overlooking Great Oyster Bay, with your own private beach at your back gate.The house has everything you could ask for." "Dear Nancy, We as a family, just want to say Thank You for a great healing and bonding time at your wonderful home Sandcastle Beach House. You have thought of everything, right down to the dvd's and games. Everything was so clean and the house was equipped with everything you could want. Just a shame we only had 3 days there. But we will definitely be back and we are recommending it to our friends too." Elizabeth and Family

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property in supurb location A wonderful stay.A very good quality property-on the beach-world class view of sea and islands - out of town Swansea ( interesting history ) to be far enough away (4k) but close enough if needed-beautiful walks and wineries close by . Great for adults and kids.
