"Wielangta would have to be the most tranquil place on earth. I would describe the property as part of the forest itself ... as if it grew there with the rest of the vegetation." (Karen, January 2013, Rating 5/5)

Three-bedroom, 3-level, architecturally stunning 175m2 (1900 sq ft) self-contained vacation house between the East Coast and the Tasman Peninsula in the highlands of Tasmania above Bream Creek.

The house and property face northeast with fantastic ocean views, capturing the sun and shielded from southerlies by a huge stand of eucalypts, blackwoods and recently planted casuarinas against the hilly terrain.

The property is immediately adjacent to Wielangta Forest on 15 hectares (40 acres) of private natural beauty and wildlife, with three decks, tremendous light, fabulous views overlooking Marion Bay, Maria Island and the Tasman Sea and heaps of untouched bush-walking opportunities ... or just time to retreat from the hustle-and-bustle.

Only 45 minutes east - yet light-years away - from the city and Hobart (International) Airport. A 'digital detox retreat'. Peaceful, private, exclusive.

A recent quest said, "Wielangta is truly a little piece of paradise on this planet." (Sherry, January 2014, Rating 5/5)

The Bream Creek / Marion Bay area has been an inspiration and a home for painters, potters, furniture makers, writers, folk musicians and poets for decades. Wielangta is an ideal location just to relax and unwind, as a base for attending the annual Bream Creek Show held every March for over 100 years, the Falls Festival over New Years or spending a day visiting galleries in the area and tasting wine at cellar doors of the Bream Creek, Cape Bernier and Yaxley Vineyards. End your day on the main deck, overlooking the ocean with a drop of your choice, or enjoy the local fare in one of the many fine restaurants in nearby Dunalley, Eaglehawk Neck, Orford and Taranna.

There are excellent short bush walking trails immediately adjacent to the property in the Wielangta State Forest (a magnificent rain forest with some of Tasmania’s tallest Blue Gum trees), fishing and surfing at the pristine 11 km Marion Bay Beach, including safe swimming for littlies at the mouth of Bream Creek, or international-level surfing at the renowned Bone Yard Surf Break at the southern end of the beach, or you can just wander the sensational coastline at Marion Bay Beach or through the adjacent Long Spit Nature Reserve (home to pelicans, black swans, fairy penguins, sea eagles and many other coastal birds).

Wielangta is also ideal as a central base for taking the ferry to Maria Island National Park, or visiting Richmond Historic Village, Freycinet Peninsula, Forestier Peninsula, Tasman National Park, Fortescue Bay, Cape Huay, the Tasmanian Devil Park and Port Arthur or doing some of the numerous bush walks along the highest sea cliffs in Australia on the rugged coastline of the Tasman Peninsula. It's also just one hour from Hobart's excellent restaurants, wine bars and famous Salamanca Sunday Market.

"A perfect place to escape to over our winter break. The house and scenery are stunning. The property is accessible to some stunning beaches, local markets, and we took a day trip out to Maria Island whilst based here. Highly recommend it." (Kerri, July 2014, Rating 5/5)

Or ... just enjoy sitting and relaxing on one of the decks overlooking the ocean. Peaceful, exhilarating, serene - your choice.

This truly original holiday house in a unique location is ideal for a small or large family up to three couples (sleeps 7+), for retreats, small family reunions, friends' weekends and boutique weddings or just a romantic time away for two people. Bring your camera; the views are amazing. The silence is restorative. No neighbours; just birds overhead and in the surrounding forest along with pademelons and other friendly critters criss-crossing the property at dusk.

"The property was beautiful with sweeping views of the bush, bay & Maria Island. A lovely location to relax & explore the scenic coastline & forests. A top spot; definitely worth a visit!" (Bryony, Rating 5/5)

The House & Property

The holiday house contains a large master bedroom on the 3rd level with a queen-size bed and 'moon-light', 2 double bedrooms with their own deck on the lower level and a window seat/single bed on the 3rd level, all overlooking the ocean. 1-2 extras could be accommodated short term in the lounge room (huge wrap-around sofa) or on the two Coleman twin high Air Beds, plus there are two infant port-a-cots and 1 Mascot 3-in-1 portable cot with Babylove inserts.

Fully equipped modern kitchen including dishwasher, new full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, all new appliances, etc. Laundry and unique clothes dryer. BBQ and outdoor family-size table on the main deck.

Large, open-plan lounge/dining room around a huge, slow combustion wood stove (with heaps of cut wood in the shed across the drive from the main house), with HD digital TV, DVD, stereo CD, etc.; 8-person wrap-around couch; full-size dining table, built-in book cases, writing desk, reading alcove filled with books, etc.

Hardwood floors with Oriental rugs throughout. Ceiling fan and skylights in the 2-storey cathedral ceiling.

Two levels of wrap-around decks (total 97 m2; 1000 sq ft) overlooking the property, Wielangta Forest and down to Marion Bay, Cape Bernier, Cape Peron, Maria Island and the Tasman Sea, plus a third secluded deck with tea table on the shaded west side of the house. Tree swing, trampoline and heaps of protected space for the kids. Outside tables and chairs ideal for leisurely dining on the sunny main deck, plus a Cape Hatteras hammock and accessible yard and hillside.

Land for Wildlife & Vacinity

Wielangta is 40 acres of heavenly private property with abundant wildlife including falcons, eagles, kookaburras, quolls, bandicoots, wombats, potoroos, wallabies and pademelons. The property has been approved and is part of the Tasmanian Land for Wildlife scheme. Out of respect for the wildlife, and future guests, no pets and no smoking on the property.

We are working with Land for Wildlife and the Understorey Network to create better land for native wildlife - part of the Tasmanian and national wildlife corridor connected most immediately with the adacent Wielangta Forest. Three creeks cross the property, joining up as the headwaters of Bream Creek, and there are two dams (ponds). The garden area has an abundance of native shrubs and trees including various grevillea, banksia, acacia (wattles) and callistemon (bottlebrushes) set against Wielangta Forest.

Watch the sun rise out of the ocean each morning, and the moon over the evening ocean, from the decks and from elsewhere on the property. Birders bring your guidebooks, and look for brown falcons, boobooks, yellow-tailed black cockatoos and many different varieties of robins including the flame and dusty robin. Whale watchers grab your binoculars.

This is an eco-friendly house and property. The house was built from natural materials, much of it recycled polished timber. All rainwater is collected and used. Heating (only necessary in winter) is by a huge wood slow-combustion stove, with cut wood immediately available. Electricity is minimised, given the natural light pouring into all rooms.

There are bush walks on the property and throughout the adjacent Wielangta Forest, home to the magnificent Eucalyptus Regnans (the tallest flowering plant on earth) as well as the rare and endangered Swift Parrot (a migratory parrot for whom Wielangta is its breeding stronghold) and Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle. On the property are a rare Oyster Bay Pine, endemic only to Wielangta Forest, and several 200-year-old Blue Gums. And the location makes Wielangta an excellent mid-point for bush-walks on the cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula or on nearby Maria Island.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disapointing A very nice location, however we were disappointed by the property. Our family stayed during winter and found the house to be drafty, and very hard to heat. Many of the windows and doors do not close fully, and many can't be opened at all. The bathroom door also does not close. The hot water has a mind of it's own as to when it will suddenly cut out, even when its the only water being used. The ceiling fan was faulty, so we couldn't circulate any hot air down from the high ceilings. My two sons were to sleep in the lower bedrooms, however we had to drag the mattresses up to the living area, due to a very bad smell in the rooms. We had to put up with a very "rank" odour emanating from the lower rooms for the four nights that we stayed. I called the owner directly to notify him of this issue and discuss the possible cause of it, and also the possibility of a partial refund. He thanked me and said he'd see what he could do. Two months later and still nothing. The property once would have been stunning, but now needs substantial work to the sinking support poles and over grown grounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from peaceful, private, perfect! Wielangta is a gem tucked away in a secluded forest. This was our second visit and every bit as good as the first. The house is quirky and full of character, thoughtfully designed for minimal environmental impact and blending beautifully with the surroundings. It was a great base to explore the local area, with ample space for the six of us. The wood stove kept us all cosy on the chilly days. We will be back again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming cottage in fabulous setting This was a perfect base for exploring the east coast of Tassie from Freycinet southward or one could have a great time hanging around the immediate area. The house is unique and charming and well-equipped.
