Whatever you need or if you just need a rest, Frogmouth Cottage is the best medicine on your script but beware of the side effects: it's addictive, you won't want to leave and you will want to come back.

Connect with mother nature and the people you care about. You will feel serenity of coming home. You will feel peaceful bliss.

Hold hands, go for a walk on the wide safe beach, with white clean sand and 40 min. return brisk walk. Feel the sand under your feet, the cool water around your ankles, fresh breeze in your hair, intoxicating pure oxygen in your lungs. Feel detoxing of your body and mind. Feel, reinvigoration, inspiration, exhilaration, fly your imagination.

Smell the sea, taste the salt, hear the surf and the sea gulls. Take in the view, build sand castles, find shells or play ball games. Go safe swimming in the pristine waters of Primrose Sands or go kayaking. Go fishing with your boat and moor it in front or just throw the line in at dusk and catch your dinner right in front of the house or just go kayak fishing. Where in the world can you do that?. Truly a feast for all your senses.

If you are lucky you may get surprise visitors. A pod of Dolphins often comes and plays in front of the house. Where in the world can you kayak and swim with the Dolphins?

Eat your freshly barbecue grilled fish with some of the best produce in the world. Then watch the spectacular sunset, your favourite show on the big screen TV or just enjoy good company, drink some wine, relax and go to sleep lulled by sound of the waves and the soft melody of a wind chime.

Wake up refreshed to the most amazing brilliant daybreak, to the sounds of birds, thunder of surf, nerves relaxed, body rested, soul reborn and ready for another day of adventure or just reading a book in a recliner, reminiscing or doing nothing, as you please.

If waking up early is too much, then sleep in and be awaken by the smell of freshly ground coffee coming from the coffee machine in the kitchen where someone is making breakfast for you. How about waking up to the ocean view from your bed?, the water is so close you can almost touch it.

The perfect choice is yours, do as much or as little as you like.

Family friendly house is for your enjoyment- comfort is the order of the day.

We have created perfect convergence of the: stunning location, convenience, comfort, activities and value. You be the judge.

Idyllic three bedroom house is beautifully renovated and has panoramic windows and open plan layout with a modern kitchen. You will see the beach just in front of you (and your kids playing or exploring rock pools) from the lounge and two bedrooms. Newly furnished and beautifully appointed cottage is all on one level easy for mobility and access.

Comfort is the order of the day and the new furniture with recliners and quality bedding has been specially selected for maximum comfort. Did we mention throw rugs, doonas, soft pillows, electric blankets and hot water bottle?

There are three recliners in the lounge so you can just lay back and enjoy the view.

Three queen beds (two with ocean view) plus a pull out sofa in the lounge. You can comfortably sleep six people in three bedrooms and two visitors in the lounge.

There is reverse cycle air conditioning or a wood fire heater for perfect ambience.

There is no such thing as a bad day at Frogmouth Cottage, even if the weather is bad and uninviting, you will be cosseted in comfort, looking out enthralled, just glad you are here.

The house is set on nearly 3000m2 of private bushland with 90 metres of beach frontage with private secluded garden and outdoor entertaining area at the rear. There is plenty of space for the kids to run around.

Wildlife is abundant: fish and the dolphins, occasional sighting of whales, birds, echidnas, lizards (resident blue tongue lizard "Cherry" who was caught on video taking a swim on the beach) visiting gander,occasional kangaroo and wallaby, swans and much more.

It is away far enough from other houses for privacy and yet close enough not to be isolated. Tucked at the end of the beach against hill the house is protected from the worst of the prevailing winds.

The property, right next to the old boat ramp is very easy to find and easy to get to with excellent and convenient access. There is plenty of parking (even if you are towing a boat or caravan) and for the visitors.

Local servo/convenience/takeaway store is less than 5 minutes and local RSL serves drinks, lunch and dinner. Sorell is 20 minutes away with supermarkets, Mc Donalds, KFC, and many other shops and restaurants. Dunelly is not far with a large pub and many interesting local shops.

You can be at the Hobart International Airport in 30 minutes and in Hobart in 45 minutes, with all the amazing conveniences of a capital city and the incomparable atmosphere of Salamanca Market on Saturdays.

Primrose Sands is a magnificent place but it's also a town and it's the people that make it wonderful. The locals are friendly and always ready for a chat, whether you bump into them on the beach or in the shop and always ready to lend a hand if need be. It's the laid back style that reminds me how mainland Australia was 45 years ago.

If you are exploring Tasmania, you are within striking distance of historic sites( Port Arthur, Richmond and Maria Island, amazing beaches ( 11 in the municipality of Sorell alone), national parks and local attractions. Frogmouth Cottage is an excellent base for day tripping, you won't run out of things to see or do.

If you have come to the greatest theatre of all, God's creation that is Tasmania, Frogmouth Cottage is the front row seat like no other.

For perfect getaway- Highly recommended by guests who stayed

Heaven on earth, we love this place. Relaxing, beautiful and heaps of fun for the kids. We saw dolphins swimming in the bay, crabs on the beach and the weather was amazing. Listening to the waves was so relaxing. We will be back in the near future

"What a Place!" Bringing the family here has been worth it. The kids enjoyed the water, the adults the spectacular view and peaceful atmosphere. The house and location is nothing short of breathtaking. Just the break we needed.

5/5 Recommended, Paul, Charlotte, Angus & Oscar - Broome WA 19/02/2013

When I saw the photos of this property on the internet I thought it couldn't be true, but it is, right on the beach. Very helpful and attentive owners. There is nothing better than going to sleep and listening to the sound of the ocean. We have had a wonderful six night stay at Frogmouth Cottage. It is such a beautiful location with a peaceful beach for the children to play. The house ticks every box, we were very comfortable. We are already planning our next holiday here.

Arriving on the 30th December 12, we were looking for somewhere to relax and take a break after a hectic Christmas. Frogmouth Cottage provided all we needed to take the load off. None of us could believe how beautiful the accommodation was

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing excellent accomodation We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Frogmouth Cottage. The cottage was so well equipped, clean and had the most amazing magical views. A great spot to base our holiday out of and the kids loved it so much they wanted to stay everyday instead of leaving to explore the other sites of Tasmania. No words can really describe just how beautiful this property is and we will definitely be booking Frogmouth Cottage for our next Tassie holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant!!! What a beautiful setting. The house is ver comfortable and spacious. We stayed at Frogmouth in April 2016 with our adult girls. You cannot ask for a more peaceful and relaxing venue. Having the ocean literally on your doorstep with no traffic was absolutely wonderful. Fabulous beach,Dolphins kayaking, walking and having a glass of wine on the beach while the sun sets is just great. We will be going their again for sure. Traveling from Perth to this destination is worth the while. Wilma Gouws

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect holiday Frogmouth cottage is set idyllicly right on the spectacular Primrose Sands beach. Everything you need for either the perfect family holiday, or romantic quiet break, is at your disposal. The owners were lovely and made sure our stay went without a hitch. We also appreciated that all the small details like easy instructions, first aid kit, emergency food and toiletries, large selection of kitchen goods, were taken care of, which meant we could just relax and enjoy the picture post card setting. We cannot recommend this property highly enough... Just come and stay!
