The property is secluded by native trees with an uninterrupted outlook to Scamander River lagoon and further across the dunes to the magnificent ocean. Max's is peaceful and quiet making it the perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate the spirit. It's just a short walk around the lagoon to the magnificent beach.

Max's is a great base to explore the East Coast and all it has to offer. The property is close to beaches, surf, restaurants, shops, pub, post office, golf, fishing, park, skate park, Scamander River and the boat launch.

We are happy to take one night bookings, however we would encourage you to stay longer as most guests wish they had Please note that over the summer holiday period January we only take a minimum of 4 night bookings. If there are spaces in-between we're happy to fill those.

Max's is a two bedroom two bathroom house. We can accomodate up to 6 people comfortably, with one double bed with electric blanket and two bunk beds bottom bunks can easily be pushed together in a large room with an electric heater. All linen is provided except beach towels.

The kitchen is fully equipped with some pantry items provided.

You'll be happy to know that Scamander tap water is drinkable.

The beach house is a very comfortable and well equipped property on a level block with plenty of room to park your cars and boat. It is exceptionally clean & well maintained with a great heater that can easily heat the entire house. Enjoy the movies, books, Fuss Ball Table & games provided.

If you want to "get away from it all" for a few days then Max's is the place for you. We cherish those moments of peaceful relaxation and you can do just that at Max's. Max's is an extremely comfortable holiday house for those wishing to visit the East Coast of Tasmania. Whether you want to kick back with friends and family, go surfing at the many local surf breaks or catch a few fish in the beautiful Scamander or from the beach you will find Max's the ideal place.

Watching the black swans glide by on the lagoon at the back of Max's as the moon rises over the ocean makes the perfect setting for a real break. If you're lucky to come at the right time of year you may be able to catch a few king prawns in the lagoon - but don't tell too many this

A little bit about us.

Kim and I love this part of Tasmania and the lifestyle it offers. We have two terrific sons aged 19 and 16 and surfing as a family is one of our favourite things to do. We both work part time at the local school in St Helens.

Music is a big part of our lives, Kim is a singer/songwriter and both boys love their music and play guitar. They both play bass guitar in various bands.

I am an artist and have been painting for most of my life. Painting makes me incredibly happy. The artworks on the walls at Max's are my works from various time periods.

We all enjoy healthy, fresh food. Kim is a keen gardener and keeps us well fed with his garden goodies. We also often enjoy what the sea has to offer on the fabulous East Coast.

We feel very fortunate to live in a place where people come to for a holiday and we really appreciate that.

Max was Kim's Dad, he was my first friend when I moved to Tasmania 20 years ago. He had the house built in the 70's and Kim holidayed here as a boy. We still miss Max. He was one of the most mindful people I've ever met.

As guests we are a tidy respectful family and are mindful of the energy that is involved in running and cleaning a holiday rental. We all contribute to the running, cleaning and maintaining of our beach house.

Happy & Safe Travels

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved my stay This was a very comfortable, well appointed house. It was spotlessly clean and had a fabulous back-yard outdoor area with a beautiful outlook. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. There are some stunning beaches and natural attractions very close by, with Scamander the perfect base. I would stay at Max’s Beach House again without hesitation and thoroughly recommend it to others. Thanks Nell, Kim and family :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place We found Max's Beach house clean with comfortable furnishings. The bed was comfy and the kitchen well equipped. There is a lovely beach just a short walk away, and shops are easily accessible by foot. The hosts are very friendly and communication was excellent. Max's Beach house would be a great place to spend with a family.
