My place is neat and clean in an older style Tasmanian timber building with new furnishings and outdoor seats with BBQ. 180 degree ocean views with grassy play area and photographic sunrises. Heating and hot water is solar powered. Clean fresh air, amazing squeaky white beaches, surf, cafes and seafood, wineries, galleries, wild penguins, fishing places. Good for couples, groups of friends and families with kids. Just the 3 bedroom area.

The space

Large living space and full kitchen and washing machine and dryer. Overlooks the ocean 300 metres walk to beach and near to a sheep pasture. Beautiful nature, fresh air, big starry skies and birds and waves to wake you up. Good base for two or three nights to explore the east coast.

Guest access

The 3 bedroom apartment, grassy yard and parking spaces. Track to the beach, 5 minutes drive to the town.

Great house with excellent view of the farm and beach. Shane is a very warm heart lady and taught us to looking for the penguin and walking through the beach.

Shane's place is a wonderful hideaway for a couple or family passing through Bicheno. Despite being less than a 5 minute drive from the township, we felt quite secluded. The house is well-furnished, close to the beach and the view from the balcony is truly breathtaking - make sure you are awake for a sunrise!

Response from Shane:
Hi David thanks for your suggestions. I just renovated the bathroom, putting in a shower cubicle, and another toilet and relined the walls and the contractor didn't have the time to install the glass shower surround until after you stayed. The curtain was a temporary measure. Living remotely you can't always get the tradespeople and equipment you need when you want them. The bathroom light globe was working before you stayed, I guess the light bulb filament was disturbed/weakened in the renovations. I wasn't aware the stove light wasn't working, I will order the globe. Good idea to have oil for cooking - do you suggest olive oil or sunflower oil as most popular? Sorry about the shampoo, my cleaner probably didn't put the usual extras in the new cabinet also installed in the reno's. Her pattern of cleaning and restocking was disrupted. Yes the penguins seem to like being under the building and deck to south of the building. 300 metres from the ocean is a long way for them to waddle on their little legs, Im surprised they walk that far. Its part of the charm having them reside with us but I sometimes need noise cancelling ear phones when two parents are feeding two hungry chicks in October. They are mating and nesting now in July and some are laying eggs so its a busy time for them. Some locals block off the underneath of their house, but the penguins still find places close to the windows to nest and 'talk'. Shane

Shane's beach house is amazing! The beautiful views and only a short stroll to the beach which is stunning and also come across some penguins! House has everything you need to keep you entertained. Close to town. Shane was more then helpful , I highly recommend staying here.

This place is lovely! The area is clean, cosy and great for penguin hunting. Wished that we could have stayed longer!

We had a wonderful stay. The house is located just up the hill from the beach and the sound of the waves at night is dreamy! One thing to check: Fancy Penguins reside under the house and make quite a racket in the evening and through the night. So while it is very enchanting to have them, continuous sleep is not possible. Their presence may be seasonal so be sure to check with the host. Other than that the house was perfect for us and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again (in non-penguin season :)

The view is really nice. The house is facing a beautiful beach, and there is a farm with hundreds of sheeps.
