This atmospheric getaway on the west coast of Tasmania is a great place to unwind, disconnect from the world, and feed your creativity. Resting on the shores of Lettes Bay, it’s a delightfully restored cabin, perched on the waterfront, with birdsong and resident ducks to remind you of your connection with nature.
Designed by its owner Claire, a creative director, photographer, interior stylist and author, it’s all about simple, nurturing living. The house is full of the owners’ personal books and treasures that guests are invited to enjoy. There are carefully chosen bed linens, hand-dyed velvet cushions, special objects such as a Tasmanian ceramic teapot and mugs, plus handmade huon pine chopping boards. Explore the cupboards, and you’ll even find some supplies for sketching and writing.
This is a place to tuck yourself away. The owners recommend soaking in the cast-iron claw-foot bathtub, watching the gum treetops swaying, or spending lazy days in the traditional iron bed, looking out over the bay with a cup of tea and a good book. Alternatively, sit on the deck with a glass of Tasmanian wine, reading, writing, or painting, or perch on the edge of the jetty, toes dangling above the water. If you ever feel like leaving the cabin, take a stroll along the shoreline and wander the lovely communal grounds of Lettes Bay.
This cabin rental in Tasmania is the ideal location for couples who want to spend some quality time together, or creatives needing to reboot.
