With it's absolute beach frontage onto Great Oyster Bay, the Mayfield Bay Beach Shack is the ideal spot to base yourself when exploring the magnificent East Coast of Tasmania. It is an easy 90 minute drive from either Launceston or Hobart and a short distance to Swansea, a regional centre. The Shack offers complete privacy in apartment style accommodation for a couple with uninterrupted views stretching from Freycinet & The Hazards to the north to Christmas Island to the south. A further 2 bedrooms downstairs are ideal for children and there is a separate sitting room downstairs. The Shack is quirky and has a quaint kitchen offering everything for the seasoned cook, while the Weber barbeque will tempt the fisherman / chef ! The upstairs is open plan and has dining for 6 with views good enough to eat. The sitting room overlooks the beach and garden and has a solid fuel stove for those chilly Tassie evenings.
On the practical side, quality bed linen and towels are supplied along with a number of essentials, olive oil, tea, coffee, etc. If you are staying for a week, we supply a mid week clean.
Our nature bush block teems with native flora and fauna, we're spied echidnas and Tasmanian devils and too many birds to count. The beach is unspoilt and at times, deserted. You'll collect too many shells to carry home on your rambles.
If a long walk on the deserted beach is not your thing, curl up with a good book ( we have lots ! ), listen to some music, watch a movie, play cards, sketch, explore the garden and plan tonight's feast. Or jump in the car and discover the delights of our local vineyards, restaurants and foodie destinations, such as Bicheno and local seafood from Triabunna, Little Swanport or Spring Bay. There is lots to do in this part of the world.
