More than the best beach stay in Tasmania, this is an EXPERIENCE of a lifetime
About Branko Mladichek
I am married to Ivanka with four children and ten grandchildren . For decades I have worked hard as a commercial builder never taking much time off, raising a family. About 10 years ago Ivanka told me to quit the chase, your kids are all married off, take the foot off the pedal, slow down and enjoy your life. I found the cottage on the internet & came to check it out. We came in the middle of winter at worst possible time, with howling wind and crashing waves it was like in a Lion's den but safe. The next day I caught three fish in front of the house for my dinner. Then I knew I was forever hooked. The next day we made an offer and after a period of negotiation the purchase was completed. The sea change retirement plan worked, firstly once monthly and now twice monthly we come to enjoy the Cottage and for customer service and property maintenance. My children and grandchildren also love to come as do our family friends. Every time I come I am blown away, just like the first time. Our returning guests feel the same.
Branko Mladichek purchased this House in 2012
Why Branko Mladichek chose Primrose Sands
Its much more than a stay, it's an experience. Our guests say that words are not enough to describe how beautiful this property is.I will try to point out the combination of incredible features that make it so unique and special. If this were Lotto then Frogmouth Cottage would be the winning ticket for nowhere else will you have so many features in one property. You would have to steal best features of dozens of properties and put them together and even then you would not replicate Frogmouth Cottage. Tasmania, the most beautiful island in the world+ pristine family safe beach+the only house right on the beach+sheltered location+views to die for+Dolphins+ privacy of a large block+30 min to airport + 45 to a capital city. A paradise but not too far from everything else and all the conveniences of dining and shopping just 20 min away. The location is incredibly rare, so close to the sea (at king tide waves lap front gate) and so low that building like this again is forbidden would absolutely not be allowed again. To get all the features of this property you would have to steal best features of about a dozen waterfront properties and put them together. Frogmouth Cottage is not just a beach holiday rental, it's my private home that we use in between guest bookings. It is wonderfully well equipped with everything you can think of and furnished with quality furniture. It's to make you feel at home, away from home and an honoured guest. Consider it a privilege to stay.
What makes this House unique
Aside from astonishing fantastic uninterrupted ocean view this is like camping on the pristine beach but with all the convenience of a fully appointed home away from home. It is also a slice of history making you feel you are in a beach shack back in time back in the the sixties. A uniquely Australian beach shack right on the beach, dating back to sixties(and feeling that way, at time when the world was not complicated) in a beautiful sheltered bush setting with the privacy of a large block and a buffer of crown land reserve on 2 sides for privacy.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

Amazing and relaxing
If you don't relax here, you will never relax anywhere. Amazing view over the water through the panoramic glass windows all around the lounge room. The bedrooms are a good size and everything you need is there. The dining area is lovely. Sorrel is 15 minutes away to stock up on food and wine. We cooked up a feast, sat there and relaxed. Can't wait to stay there again!!
HEAVEN ON EARTH
Our first thoughts as soon as we got to this little oasis was we had found Heaven
The owners had thought of everything , it was lovely and clean but also cosy and warm . We will defiantly be extending our stay and hope to bring our family with us next time. Thankyou so much as we seriously needed this break and your truly beautiful home right on the beach did that for us. Cheers Leanne & Wazz
House was everything we needed and more for our short Easter holiday, thank you!
What a privilege to stay here!!!
The photos just don't do it justice. Usually when things look too good to be true, well you know the rest. Well that's not the case with this one. The first thing we did upon arrival was go for a swim & what a perfect beach. Safe for children & stunningly clean water. The house is spacious & has everything you could ever need during your stay. To sit in the lounge room & be mesmerised by the view through the huge pane glass window is indescribable. Even during "non-outside weather" it's a joy. We had a fire on our second night & it warmed the whole house through. Can't wait to return!
Thank you Pete for a beautiful review, you will always be welcome.
How do you write about the place where the beauty is indescribable, where it's beyond photography, beyond imagination, beyond reality, almost a fantasy.
A place that is not just a feast of all of your bodily senses but also a feast of your inner senses and emotions. A place of calm, serenity, tranquility, privacy, aura and magic of Mother Nature. A place to think, reminisce, share, love, enjoy rest your soul and miss when you leave.
My pen and camera fail me so you will just have to come to experience a true gem.
Make no mistake. Frogmouth Cottage is truly a national treasure for it has given so much joy to so many people.
We had a wonderful time at Frogmouth. The location is right on the beach and the cottage has everything you need. The cottage was very clean, beds and linen very comfortable and the owners were very hospitable. We would highly recommend the property and will definitely stay again.
This property is all about the setting and location and it doesn't disappoint. The house has everything needed for a fantastic family break on the water. Getting to kayak with dolphins the highlight of our stay.
Thank you for staying Laura, it was a pleasure hosting your family, you are welcome to come again.
If you were shooting a film in Tasmania and you needed actors workshop in an incredible location but with privacy where will you go?
As it happened the crew of "Lion" booked Frogmouth Cottage for their get together and rehearsals. How many hosts can boast of having Hollywood "A" listers. We can!
Central location is ideal base for exploring South Eastern Tasmania.
