PLEASE NOTE: We are currently renovating our holiday house, which will be available for rental again from 1 October 2016. We are still taking enquiries and bookings, and we endeavour to provide a same-day response to all Stayz enquiries.
Spring Beach Holiday House is a traditional beach shack – one of the first built in the area – currently undergoing an extensive upgrade (kitchen, bathroom, polished floors, etc) which will provide modern quality facilities while maintaining its original homey feel.
Located on Tasmania's sunshine east coast only 5 minutes drive south of Orford, Spring Beach Holiday House dates from the 1940s and 1950s and has been in the family since the 1970s.
The rustic vertical board cottage sits at the southern end of the beach, looking out over the ocean towards Mercury Passage and Maria Island. It is absolute waterfront, the closest to the water of all the houses in Spring Beach. With no roads to cross, it is a minute's walk to the beach and close enough to the ocean to be lulled to sleep by the waves at night...
Much-loved by many over the years, we know you'll be seduced by this cottage.
The Spring Bay area...
Offers plenty for those wanting to explore, exercise or dine well;
Is the gateway to the glorious East Coast, with Swansea, Bicheno and the Freycinet Peninsula within an easy drive; the town of Triabunna, with its ferry service to Maria Island, is 15 minutes drive north of the shack.
