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

Darlington can accommodate 8 guests.


The advertised rate is for the main section of the house on upper level that has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, separate toilet and spacious open plan kitchen/living/dining area. This area of the house can accommodate up to 6 people.

THE RETREAT lower level

There is also a fully self contained one bed apartment with underfloor heating that offers a 4th bedroom and 2nd shower room & kitchen/living/dining area that can accommodate an additional 2 guests extremely comfortably. It otherwise just remains empty.

Due to the inflexibility of the stayz system I have had to advertise this in the 'optional' section. So if there are 8 of you or you would like the added luxury of both levels, you will need to tick this box The retreat is a one off fee per night.


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.

Darlington is spacious, airy and light, well appointed and equipped. Darlington provides 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.

Darlington 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 property 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.

To book the retreat click on the optional section.

The upper level main section of the house accommodates 6 guests in 3 bedrooms 2 x queen size, 1 twin that can be zipped together to create a KS bed. The fully self contained one bed apartment/adult retreat on the lower level accommodates 2 and is charged at a flat rate.

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.


The property is only a 4 - 5 minute walk from Stapleton Beach and a 7 - 8 minute walk via a Cliff walk to Spring Beach the Cliff walk is on Crown Reserve opposite the property.

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.


RATES: $220-$240 per night per couple depending on season, number of bedrooms used and whether guests need to book the lower level adult retreat that will otherwise remain empty and locked. We value our guests exclusive use of the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent property to relax and unwind We have stayed at Darlington Beach house on more than one occasion and would be very happy to stay again. The peace and quiet made for a very relaxing stay. Although only a few minutes walk from the beach (choice of two) we were able to take in the wonderful water views across to Maria Island because of the position of the house. Set back from the road, and on a huge allotment made for very private and peaceful surroundings. Every morning we would enjoy the stunning sunrise over Maria Island listening to the songs of the birds. An extremely well appointed Kitchen, a comfortable and generous lounge/dining we needed for nothing. Thank-you Janice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful family home We had a very relaxing stay at Darlington with our children and granddaughter. The house had everything we needed and worked well for us with the extra benefit of the parent's retreat downstairs giving everyone the space to spread out. Kitted out as a family home, the kitchen had lots of extras which holiday homes don't often have. The open plan living - dining area is a lovely area to gather together and the short walk to the little bay close by convenient. In early summer, we sometimes had the beach to ourselves. We did't make it to Maria Island this visit, but noted it would be an easy trip. Beautiful drives and views along the east coast without going far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Was so looking forward to our stay here Rated 5 star ? Inside nicely presented but outside was more like a suburban home not what I would call a beach house Quiet a walk to the beach Toilet floor covered in water when we arrived Beds very low and curtains dragged on floor Outside really poorly maintained grass not even mown

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!!
