Freycinet View is a fully furnished double storey three bedroom house with the living area upstairs offering sensational views. The house is positioned just 50 metres from the high-tide level of the secluded Nine Mile Beach near Swansea on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia.

The property has 80 metres of beach frontage with sensational views of Freycinet Peninsula, Schouten Island, Maria Island and Swansea. Freycinet View is set on a 5 acre block including 1 acre of fenced yard around the house. Your dog is welcome, no other pets allowed.

The property is less than 10 minutes drive from Swansea. Or you could walk or pushbike there via the beach, but there is a small creek crossing near town which usually is easily crossed. A map of the general area is provided in the picture gallery.


Freycinet View offers very comfortable accommodation for 4 adults, but can easily cater for 6 with three bedrooms, a bathroom, two toilets and laundry in the downstairs area.It is an older house, however the kitchen and bathroom were completely renovated in October 2015 and now include induction cooktop and a dishwasher.

The bedrooms comprise king bed, queen bed and a double bed configuration. Quality linen and bath towels are provided. You will need to bring your own beach towels.

The upstairs living area includes a wood fire, digital tv - 18 digital stations & digital radio - a surround sound system that also plays DVD's and CD's - with a selection of dvd's, cd's, books, games and magazines. The kitchen is very well appointed much better than the usual with a brand new ikea kitchen with induction cook top, a conventional oven and also a microwave combi oven, a wide range of electrical appliances including dishwasher, a Nespresso coffee machine and a sandwich grill.

Freycinet View is self-catering but there are two excellent IGA supermarkets in Swansea, each of which have ATMs. There is also an ATM at the Bendigo Bank branch.

There is an outdoor setting on the large deck and a gas barbecue in the downstairs covered outside parking area.

Local Attractions

Freycinet View is the perfect place to just kick back, walk on your own secluded beach, collect some shells, read a book and have a glass of the local wine, you brought earlier in the day.

For some exercise and activities Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay are just a short drive from Swansea and are considered to have some of the finest bush walking tracks in the world. You could also try sea kayaking or abseiling. A bit further afield, but within a very easy day trip, is Tasmania's newest park, the Douglas-Apsley National Park. Situated in the middle of the East Coast, Douglas-Apsley National Park has spectacular river gorges, waterfalls, tranquil pools, large stands of dry eucalypt and pockets of rainforest. Another alternate day trip is a visit Maria Island, a short journey via the Maria Island Ferry that departs from Triabunna. You can do the Bishop and Clerk mountain walks or, for something less strenuous, visit the Fossil Cliffs and then the Painted Cliffs - both beautiful in their own way. Get up close to Cape Barron geese, wombats, Forester kangeroos, the Tasmanian native hen and, if you are lucky, the forty-spotted pardalote, one of the smallest and rarest birds in Australia. You will need to take your food and drinks - there is nothing provided on the island.

For something less strenuous there are many wineries, galleries, restaurants and bars in the area. For fine dining there is the Piermont Restaurant. For more casual dining there is Saltshaker excellent calamari and good size serves, Oysterbay Seafoods best chips in the world? Bark Mill Bakery breakfast and lunch only. For a great coffee plus light lunch or morning /afternoon tea Artifact is great try the berry muffins or the cheescake. The gourmet seafood pizza at the Bark Mill pub is delicious - sensational with a glass of the local riesling.

There are 5 local wineries with cellar door tastings, including the prestigious Freycinet Vineyard, producer of world class Pinot Noir and Riesling plus 'Radenti' a fabulous multi medal sparkling wine, available cellar door only. The other nearby wineries are Coombend Pinot Noir, Cab Sav, Late Harvest Sav Blanc, Springvale Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Guwertz, Milton Estate A very wide range of varieties, but make sure you try their sparkling and their Rose, if they have not already sold out, Gala Estate; none of which should be missed. Coombend also provides tastings of it's own excellent estate grown and pressed olive oil and of a number of 'sister' wine labels from north Tasmania. There is a good selection of Tasmanian wines at the Bark Mill hotel bottle shop, AND they do carry some local wines that do not have cellar door, such as Kelvedon excellent Pinot Noir and Sav Blanc. The east coast offers a higher Growing Degree Days GDD index than other viticultural areas of Tasmania, although careful site selection is an important factor for success.

Kate's Berry Farm is one of Tassie's most popular land marks. Not only do they supply premium berry products; jams, sauces, wines etc, but they also serve some of the best coffee, cake and ice creams to be found anywhere If for no other reason, visit Kate's for the vista across the berry farm and Great Oyster Bay to Freycinet

Other local produce includes walnuts, olives and the very best oysters, scallops and lobsters. Excellent gourmet cheeses and the local pickled walnuts can be bought at the Corner Store supermarket. For fresh oysters, just 5 kms further out Dolphin Sands Rd to buy oysters direct from Melshell Oysters. Get your oysters immediately after they have been harvested from Great Oyster Bay; best to arrive around midday See . for details.

For nature lovers, visit the mutton bird rookery at Swansea and walk the Loon.tite.ter.maire.re.le.hoin.er track around Swansea's headland, passing through the shearwater breeding ground, plus see the little penguins at Swansea or Bicheno and keep your eye out for dolphins, seals and the occasional whale usually Southern Right whales with calves in Great Oyster Bay, out in front of the house.

You can also wander our 4 acres of natural bush in search of possums, echidnas, wallabies, rabbits, parrots, blue tongue lizards, numerous species of native birds and the occasional quoll and tassie devil. Bring your torch and look for the Little Forest Bats yes, that is a real name - they are only about 5 cms long as they chase insects just after dusk up near the entrance to the drive-way. To sea-ward look for white-bellied sea eagles, short tailed shearwaters, black swans, pelicans, petrels and terns.

Don't forget your fishing rod for great shore or boat fishing. The flathead are big here There is an excellent range of fishing tackle at the Morris General Store. Bait can be purchased at Morris Store as well as the two petrol stations. Squid can often be caught off the Swansea jetty. Salmon and bream frequent the mouth of the nearby Swan River and salmon and flathead can be caught off the beach in front of the house.

For a taste of history visit Maria Island book the ferry in advance, Spiky Bridge, the Bark Mill Museum, take the Swansea historic walk, including the Swansea Museum or take a longer drive to Richmond where there are excellent wineries to visit and MONA.

Weekly bookings ONLY during December and January.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect retreat This was our second stay in this beautiful house and we loved it! Everything was perfect, from the fluffly white towels, the heater that came on at night when it got a bit chilly, the soap in the bathroom to the absolutely perfectly stocked kitchen (it has everything!) The kids, the dogs, and us had an amazing time, and it was well worth saving up to be able to have these perfect days at the beach. The stereo doesn't seem to work, maybe that would be something to check on. It took me a while to figure out how to get the stove to work, even with the information there I didn't realise that I had to unlock the child safety lock. Those few minutes made for some very entertaining and hilarious comedy in the kitchen! Thank you for an amazing stay, and for making it so pet friendly! Oh, and our dogs did discover the one little bit that didn't have fencing behind the garage, but I let the caretaker know about this and I believe he took care of it. We will definitely try to come back again (our kids want to live there)! We had a marvellous time and I can highly recommend this absolutely perfect 5 star accommodation to anyone looking for a relaxing family holiday at the beach! Aleks and family
