Absolute, on the beach, location is as breathtaking as it is unique and rare, It will make you feel like you own the most pristine beach you can imagine.

Tasmania is the most beautiful island in the world Primrose Beach is exquisite, pristine family safe beach

It’s where sand is silk, water crystal, sky bluest, air purest, breeze freshest and Mother Nature finest, where time stops, your dreams merge with reality and fantasy becomes real. You will think you are back in the sixties.

World-class location, world-class beach, views to die for, everything to live for. You heard "as good as it gets" this is better. Never mind world class this is in a class of its own. Out of this world really.

The iconic 60's Australian beach house in the idyllic location, and the only house on the beach.

It’s where the gravity of Tasmanian history gives way to the lightness of innocence.

Nowhere else will Mother Nature hold you so gently, caress you so tenderly with whispers of wind, lovingly lull you to sleep with sounds of the sea and the soft melody of a wind chime.

It’s where photos are not enough, superlatives inadequate, descriptions fall short, words bland, when you just have to be here to believe it, to feast on all your senses.

A rarest of places, of unimaginable beauty, blissful serenity, angelic aura, where the sum of its parts is exceeded by magic. It’s a slice of paradise just 30 min. from the airport.

With the ocean in your face, the location will blow you away, the beach will amaze you, the views will mesmerize you, the comfort will spoil you, the peace will soothe you, Dolphins and the wildlife will delight you. The peaceful rest will revitalize you.

Our guests tell us: perfect, paradise, magical, mesmerizing, so well equipped, "pearl in the oyster", “ on entry a feeling of peace and calm greeted us like an old friend” and "heaven on earth" and "we don't want to go home" and "we will be back". Where else will you get a chance to see, kayak and swim with the Dolphins?

Frogmouth Cottage, is the best beach-stay in Tasmania, but can a place that has given so much pleasure to so many be a National Treasure?

Well, our local, interstate and international guests have ticked all the boxes.

You don’t have to die to come to paradise, just come to Frogmouth Cottage.

Frogmouth Cottage is a drug. If you are diagnosed with a condition needing Tasmanian holiday then you are in trouble. There is no known cure, however frequent visits will alleviate the symptoms. Frogmouth Cottage is the best medicine on your script. The initial effect will be that of a shock and awe on arrival, then when you come to, inducing a state of pleasant delirium for the duration of your stay, transcending and drifting from reality to fantasy on a high nowhere else experienced, almost a fiction but real, as close as it gets to paradise without dying. As the check out nears, resistance to leaving will increase and like all drugs, when you leave you will suffer withdrawal symptoms, wanting to come back. There are other side effects. You will loose brain cells to some of the most beautiful memories you will ever make and your judgment will be impaired so that any other nice place you visit will not be quite.

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 the 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.

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.

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

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. There is crown land buffer either side and the neighbours at back are far enough for privacy.

The house has recently been extended to include private and discreet unit for owners who come to stay for customers service and property maintenance. Owners area is self-contained, separated with privacy screens, sound walls and separate road access. Owners keep a low profile but are friendly and like to interact with guests.please note not all of the land is available to guest access.

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.

The cottage 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. Dunalley 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.
