For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts.
Designed by award-winning Australian architect Craig Rosevear, Avalon Coastal Retreat is a stylish blend of steel and glass and features the work of some of Tasmaniaâ€™s top furniture designer/makers and artists. Its location will take your breath away. The outlook is the vast emptiness of the Tasman Sea with the Freycinet Peninsula on the horizon.
The Avalon Experience
Just below the house is a secluded beach where you can walk, fish, collect shells, swim in the clear crisp waters or hide away with a book. Look out for the white bellied sea eagle that passes every morning. Body boards, wetsuits, kayaks and beach towels are available for use.
At Avalon you will enjoy a self managed stay. We plan for our guests to want for nothing. You can arrive and make use of the gourmet food and beverages provided with no need to leave the comfort of your surroundings, or feel completely welcome to bring your own provisions and make full use of our fully equipped, â€˜state of the artâ€™ kitchen, with a fridge, freezer and pantry full of Tasmanian produce and chef, pre-prepared food.
As part of the self-catering experience, the tariff includes gourmet breakfast provisions and chilled sparkling wine â€“ Ninth Island Cuvee. Avalon sleeps six people, with all three bedrooms featuring queen-sized beds designed and handmade in Huon Pine by Stuart Houghton.
Alison, the manager, is available for any special requests, and if you are enjoying multi-night stays, we offer servicing as regularly as required.
