Holiday Rental House
Designed with indoor/outdoor living in mind, the home has decks on three sides accessed by sliding doors at the back and front. In addition to providing privacy, the extensive plantings of native grasses, trees and shrubs around the home attract a variety of wallabies, possums, parrots, wattle birds, cockatoos and many others. It is possible to identify 10 or so species of birds whilst enjoying breakfast on the deck. On a moonless night the back deck is perfect for viewing the millions of stars not visible from a city because of light pollution. Our holiday homestay has three bedrooms; one has a double bed, another a queen size bed and a single bed and the third has two bunk beds and a single bed. All beds have quilts and pillows.

In addition to providing privacy, the extensive plantings of native grasses, trees and shrubs around the home attract a variety of wallabies, possums, parrots, wattle birds, cockatoos and many others. It is possible to identify 10 or so species of birds whilst enjoying breakfast on the deck. On a moonless night the back deck is perfect for viewing the millions of stars not visible from a city because of light pollution. Our holiday homestay has three bedrooms; one has a double bed, another a queen size bed and a single bed and the third has two bunk beds and a single bed. All beds have quilts and pillows. We will supply sheets, pillow cases and towels, unless local visitors would prefer to take their own. Extra pillows and blankets are stored in the bedroom cupboards. There is a large fully equipped kitchen, dining and living area. The bathroom has a shower, hand basin and a washing machine. There is a separate toilet. The wood heater can be used to warm the shack in mid-winter. Mobile phone wifi and internet access is possible with some providers at the holiday home, but in the township it is widely available for free. Because of the nearby conservation areas and National Park status of the peninsula, we do not allow pets at the shack. Plenty of native animals are already living here! Put some bird seed on the feeding platform and water in the tray and see if you can attract any birds. The Swanwick golf course is very close and there is a set of clubs and buggy behind the bathroom door for you to borrow. A boat ramp is at the Swan River in Swanwick and two boat ramps are about 4 kilometres away in Coles Bay. Great Oyster Bay is about 15km long and 8km wide and is sheltered by the Freycinet Peninsula, making it perfect for boating, fishing or just enjoying the magnificent scenery. Around the Coles Bay region it is easy get to many stunning beaches with beautiful white sand derived from the red granite which form the magnificent Hazards. Well maintained tracks allow access to the iconic Wineglass Bay and across the isthmus to Hazard Beach and further down the peninsula. The Waste Management Centre (on the left as you drive into Coles Bay) is open from 2:30 to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday, and Sunday 12:30 to 4:30. It is closed on Saturday. Before guests leave, we do ask that you leave the shack in a neat and tidy condition and take all rubbish to the local tip or place it in the appropriate wheely bin outside next to the driveway. It is collected early on Tuesday mornings.. Information about all aspects of the Freycinet National Park will be sent to you after a booking is confirmed and is available from the Parks and Wildlife headquarters next to the entrance to the park past the Freycinet Lodge. Should two bookings be received about the same time, the longer duration booking will take precedence and be accepted. The rental is based on four people and each extra guest will be $20/night/person.More

Hi Ian, There are not two separate bathrooms but there is a bathroom with a shower (no bath) and a separate toilet. This is what I was clumsily trying to imply within the limitations of the choices provided by the Trip Advisor website. We do...More

About the neighbourhood
Freycinet is a peninsula of native forest edged by crystal blue bays. Hike through protected parkland, scale the granite peaks of The Hazards and emerge at some of Tasmanias most epic swimming spots. Summer does a roaring trade here, so it pays to book accommodation early. Photographers (on land or scuba) love the famous curved shoreline of Wineglass Bay and the granite boulders fringing the shorein National park on Tasmanias east coast is one of the states most spectacular natural areas and has well-maintained trails and facilities for visitors keen to see world famous Wineglass Bay and beyond. These popular tracks are hugely worth the effort, as are all signposted areas around Freycinet such as Sleepy Bay, the Cape Toureville Lighthouse and Friendly Beaches; all beautiful and pristine wi...
