After a day sight-seeing in Northern Tasmania or wine-touring the Tamar Valley, there is little better than relaxing on Beachside’s front porch and enjoying the view.
Overlooking the Tamar River and set in a lovely garden of native and heirloom plants, Beachside is a unique Cape Cod styled home; picturesque and perfect for a quiet getaway or small celebration event.
Built in 1950 and lovingly maintained, the decor and furnishings are in keeping with that era, while gentle renovations provide modern appliances and conveniences in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The spacious galley kitchen is designed with the foodie in mind. You'll be "cooking with gas" on the stove, baking perfectly in the electric oven or wood firing pizzas in the wood-burning stove. There are a range of cooking appliances in the cupboards and a lot of platters and serving utensils in the deep drawers for those who would like to entertain a large group or host a celebration or event.
Three living areas provide generous personal space for guests and 180 degree views of the deep water harbour of the Tamar River just across the road.
The open-plan lounge has a large comfortable couch, big screen LCD TV, DVD player, wood heater, and reverse-cycle air-conditioner.
The sunroom has informal dining overlooking the river and fabulous 1960s armchairs for relaxing in with a glass of wine or a good book.
The formal dining boasts a rustic 8-10 seat teak dining table and high-backed chairs, and two comfortable armchairs for enjoying listening to LP’s or sipping port by the big open fireplace.
The 3 upstairs bedrooms are expansive, all with water views. Standard configuration is 3 beds 1xDB, 2x QB for up to 6 people, however a convertible sofa in the front room offers a comfortable bed for an additional 2 people if required.
At Beachside, everything you need for a self-contained stay is provided: linen and towels; all kitchen utensils and appliances; wi-fi internet; general pantry items, and liquid soaps in the showers and by basins.
All you need to bring is clothes and food - for those nights where you don't get fish and chips or wander to one of the pubs for a delicious counter meal on the water…
Beauty Point is an excellent place to relax and recharge, with all of the town's amenities and attractions a short walk or drive from Beachside's front door.
