Description

Tucked away among a village of charming cottages and shacks, this beach house rental in Tasmania is set right on the waterfront of Lettes Bay on the island’s wild west coast.    

Along with its neighbors, the cottage is a historically listed structure that comes complete with its own jetty and stunning views of the water and rainforests. The typical clapboard construction with French windows and doors and dreamy, scenic location lend it a timeless quality. Restored and designed by a creative director and native Aussie, the house is her pride and joy and is decorated with love and delight with objects and furnishings from around Australia and the world. Infusing the compact spaces with a sense of fun and wonder, the comforts are all here as well, with a cozy bed for two, comfy furnishings and a claw foot tub for soaking in the views. 

The spaces around the cabin and the jetty are great for a lazy morning coffee watching the bay come to life or for a relaxing glass of wine at sunset from the deck. Keep you eyes out for the fisherman coming in, they’ll usually sell you some of the fresh catch of the day!

The owners also create small runs of original, hand crafted items for sale including heavy weight linen captains bags and prints and textiles. 

Shared by all of the fellow shack owners, the area is supremely quiet and peaceful but also comes alive with the buzz of fishing, boat building and community.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, TV, kitchen and bath essentials, picnic amenities, firewood,  parking. 

AROUND

The wild, remote and untamed western Tasmanian coast is home to expansive stretches of rugged wilderness and coastline with massive dunes and charming harbor towns. The gateway to the UNESCO listed Franklin–Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and the West Coast Wilderness Railway, the town of Strahan is a great jumping off point for exploring the pristine rainforests and waterways of the interior.Set along the enormous Macquarie Harbour, the town has a dark and notorious past as a penal colony and pioneer town but today is an iconic travel destination with artisan shops and cafes. Just over twenty five miles from the former mining town of Queenstown, you are over four hours from Hobart.

It is essential for guests to have travel insurance. Very occasionally, during the winter months roads can close temporarily due to snow or ice disrupting travel plans. As this is a travel issue rather than an issue with the listing, owners don't issue refunds or extend stays due to usually being fully booked — and recommend you contact your insurer to assist with the cost of disrupted travel arrangements.
