Darlington Beach House is a beautifully appointed holiday house in a fabulous location only a short stroll to two stunning white sandy beaches: Spring Beach and Stapleton Beach on Tasmania's spectacular East Coast.

Darlington has well-appointed kitchen and partially stocked pantry. Extras include a comprehensive DVD library and games to keep the family entertained (on a wet, windy winter's day), sumptuously comfortable beds, with quality linen and towels and all of the comforts of home.

The two storey beach house is situated on a peaceful two acre bush garden overlooking coastal reserve and enjoys beautiful and expansive ocean views towards Maria Island National Park.

The beach house is spacious, airy and light, extremely well appointed and equipped. Darlington provides stylish contemporary furnishings, quality towels and linen, essential oil soaps, a well equipped Chef's kitchen with stainless steel/European appliances, a partially stocked pantry, a wood heating fire for cold winter nights, a reverse-cycled air conditioning/heating system, air spa bath plus luxury underfloor heating beneath in the lower level adult retreat.

The Beach House has a barbecue and two outdoor settings and everything (we hope) guests will need to make their stay special including I-pod Docking stations, a comprehensive DVD library, binoculars, maps, an assortment of games, toys, magazines, reference books, boogie boards and fishing rods.

The Beach House accommodates 2-8 guests extremely comfortably over the two fully self-contained levels and is ideal for couples seeking a romantic break as well as families and friends seeking quality accommodation that offers flexible living spaces and flexible rental options.

Guests can choose to rent the whole house including the lower level adult retreat or the main part of the house only in the upper level whilst still having exclusive use of the property (we don't rent out the retreat separately!). The upper level accommodates 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, the fully self contained one bed apartment/adult retreat on the lower level accommodates 2. The retreat also offers a second shower room, living area with TV/DVD/I-pod docking station and small kitchenette. The shower room in the lower level is off the living area not bedroom and is easily accessible to guests staying in the main section of the house on the upper level.


Darlington is perfectly located to explore the East Coast of Tasmania, Maria Island National Park, East Coast Wineries, Richmond and The Coal Valley Wine Region. THE BEACH HOUSE sits on a two acre bush garden overlooking coastal reserve and the ocean. Spring Beach is a 7-8 minute walk (10 minute amble) away (via road or spectacular cliff path) and the more exclusive Stapleton Beach a mere 5 minutes walk (7 minute amble!) via coastal reserve. Darlington is less than one hour from Hobart airport and one hour from Hobart. The Beach House is only a 4-5 minute drive or short cycle ride to Orford and all other amenities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girls weekend away We recently had a girl's weekend away at Darlington Beach House. Four busy Mum's needing a relaxing getaway weekend, and Darlington Beach House was just what we all needed! We had a great stay. The location is fabulous, only an hour or so from Hobart. The property is well taken care of and very comfortable. We enjoyed the walk from across the road opposite the beach house which ends up down in Orford. We enjoyed a chick flick (great variety supplied) on the Saturday night. Lots of space and would suit a family time away too. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Escape Our stay at Darlington was relaxing from the moment we walked in the door. The house is well appointed with quality furniture which make sure that you genuinely feel at home. We loved our time in Orford and enjoyed a few trips in the car to some local vineyards, but we were always glad to get back to our home away from home. Loved the morning coffee/tea which was a nice facility and everything in the home was easy to use. Janice was lovely during the booking process and went out of her way to ensue that we would be comfortable with our newborn son during our stay. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous property in a stunning spot We stayed recently for a few days in the school holidays. It was myself and my best friend with our teenage children (5 between us) We had the most relaxing time together and even though it was the middle of winter it was cosy and warm inside and the view was spectacular. Plenty of room to relax, the beds were so comfortable and we will definitely be coming back.
