Welcome to one of the most beautiful and secluded destinations in Australia, perfect for couples and families alike.
Binalong Bay is a small coastal town, 15 minutes drive from St Helens and 2.5 hours drive from Launceston. Condé Nast Traveller named it the second most beautiful beach in the world and it was declared the world's hottest travel destination, by Lonely Planet in 2009. It has the whitest, fine hourglass sand and bluest azure water in the world, along with the magnificent granite boulders, dusted with bright orange lichen.
Our original 1950s, "board and batten" timber cabin, is located in the spectacular east cost of Tasmania. Perched directly opposite the magical Binalong Bay beach, the home is furnished with an eclectic blend of period pieces, many of which have been handmade by local craftsman.
The home comfortably sleeps up to 4 people (but can accommodate 5, if required). It has a master bedroom with built-in wardrobe (upstairs) and sleep-out downstairs with a double and single bed (incl. wardrobe and dressing table) but no internal access and no downstairs bathroom.
There is also a day-bed in the lounge room, which is very comfortable as an extra bed.
Cabin kitchen, well equipped for your gourmet Tasmanian feasts (incl. oven, microwave and fridge).
Stunning ocean views from the living room, which also has a traditional fireplace, perfect for cosy winter evenings.
The combined bathroom/laundry contains a basin, shower, flushing toilet and washing machine.
Large deck/balcony suitable for outdoor dining (complete with BBQ facilities) or just relaxing as the sun sets over the water.
NB: Guests in the downstairs room will need to use the external stairs to access the rest of the house, including the bathroom.
NOTE: Minimum 5 day booking over Christmas, New Year and Easter periods.
Please contact us with any questions you have. We look forward to helping you book an incredibly relaxing vacation.
