Now in it's 10th year of operating a family friendly beach side accommodation Longest running Holiday House in the area - so stay with confidence
Surf side Cottage has been operating from early 2005 With a full refurbishment inside in 2010 and continues to provide affordable family friendly accommodation on one of Tasmania's most popular beaches.
Amazing outlook from a very private Beach Front Cottage, overlooking Frederick Henry Bay and Carlton Beach Park Beach end. The property enjoys over 50 meters of beach frontage, with only a narrow reserve of sand dunes between the cottage and the beach. The property also has a good degree of privacy and gate in front of the deck leads to a path directly to the beach.
Relax on the large deck to enjoy watching the local surfers & kite surfers, along with the local wildlife birds in abundance, possums, wallabies and bandicoots. Watch the sun go down from the deck, with a glass of wine, then fall to sleep with the sound of waves crashing on the beach.
Surf Side Cottage is a traditional Beach side shack - a little rustic on the outside, with modern comforts on the inside to make your stay more enjoyable. We are not five star, but far more roomy than a hotel room on a large residential private allotment and very comfortable and cosy in an unbeatable location. Excellent value for money - great for families and couples alike.
Two Bedrooms. Main Bedroom with a very comfortable Queen bed & second TV. Second Bedroom with a bunk bed - double on the bottom and single on the top. Great for 2 couples traveling together or plenty of room for the family.
Other facilities include; One modern bathroom with separate shower bay and a bath. There is a front loading washing machine located in this area too. Separate Toilet composting toilet adjacent to the bathroom. A fully equipped modern kitchen, with a twin drawer dishwasher. Inverter Heat Pump for year round comfort Air Cond & Heating, and a wood fire heater to snuggle up in front of on those romantic winter evenings.
Large comfortable couch to enjoy the Wood Fire and/or TV, plus a Blue Ray player. There is a selection of DVD's & CD's to enjoy as well. There is a second TV in the main bedroom.
