Private cottage 100 metres from the white sand of Spring Beach. The cottage is on a large block in a bush setting with beautiful views of the beach, Maria Island and the Triabunna lighthouse. Birds are in abundance and there is also a resident echidna and occasional sightings of wallabies and wombats.

The sunny cottage has a large deck around the eastern and northern sides. The front deck is ideal for breakfasting in the sunshine and watching the waves, the fishing boats heading out and the morning joggers. The side deck is a great place for a BBQ and an evening drink in the setting sun. There is a large grassed area for boules or badminton and there is also an on-site tennis court (all equipment provided).

The main bedroom with queen bed opens onto a sun-room with a sofa bed and wonderful beach views (can be closed off with sliding doors). The second bedroom has a set of bunkbeds, a single bed and a trundle so can sleep up to four. A portacot, highchair and pram are also available and there are some childrens' toys, books, DVDs and buckets and spades.

A cosy wood heater warms the entire house and wood is supplied.

The kitchen is stocked with basic condiments, tea, coffee and a complimentary bottle of Tasmanian Pinot Noir from the owners' winery (if staying for a minimum of 2 nights).


(tariffs less out-of-pocket expenses, see receipts in visitors' book).

Activities/attractions available in the area

There are magnificent scenic walks from Spring Beach with paths around the cliffs at either end of the beach. To access the southern cliff walk, climb the steps to the Bluff at the end of the beach and then walk in front of the row of houses (it is public land) to the point and you can then continue until the path rejoins Rheban Road. The round trip takes about half an hour. For a longer walk you can follow the road until you reach the track down to Stapleton Beach.

The northern cliff walk commences on the track near the public BBQs and passes through bushland and past an old quarry before reaching the cliff edge.This track has recently been upgraded and is wide enough to facilitate bikes or prams and continues as far as Shelley Beach.

Spring Beach is good for swimming and the southern end provides good snorkelling. The rockpools at either end of the beach are always popular with the children.

Orford is a 5 minute drive away and has a fully stocked supermarket, a post office, a cafe and pizza restaurant and childrens' playground. Across the bridge there is also a hotel, bottle-shop, seafood restaurant and take away.

Darlington Winery is at the northern end of Orford and offers free tastings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This is just a delightful villa to stay in. The owners have thought of every need for their guests. The location is fantastic, crashing waves can be heard from the beach. The deck is wonderful to have breakfast on and watch the beautiful sunrises and water/Maria Island. I can not fault this property for affordability & comfort. 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and picturesque This is a charming cottage in a private estate. It's secluded and quiet, comfortable and well appointed. It's a convenient stay for visiting Maria Island and the views across the water to the island are wonderful.
