My home is a 3bdr two storey house overlooking Pirates Bay, set back on a forested 2.5 acre block with expansive views of the ocean, just an hour from Hobart / 45mins from the airport. Ideal for walks, diving, surfing, reading next to the fireplace & exploring the Tasman Peninsula.
NOTE: Sometimes I may (work dependent) also be on the property in a self-contained space, 70m from the house which remains entirely yours. Any questions about this just ask!
Nestled on a wooded incline overlooking Pirates Bay, my home features a cosy wood heater & split firewood (during winter), outdoor BBQ & cooking area with night lighting, carport, a modern interior with polished floor boards and carpeted bedrooms.
There are three bedrooms - two downstairs, one with two single beds and one with a double bed, along with a master upstairs bedroom with a queen bed featuring a private balcony.
The first floor has a balcony, large open-plan living room / dining area, with a kitchen and twin breakfast bench chairs. All amenities are included for cooking (pots, pans, etc).
There is fast Internet access provided over WIFI (NBN). There is no TV - there is however a large selection of good books & thought provoking magazines around the house, plus beautiful views and great places to go on long walks.
Fully self-contained with all linen provided, oven, microwave & fully-equipped kitchen.
Snorkel & masks (set of two) and a surfboard are also available for guest use (just ask and I will ensure they're out for you).
There are no laundry facilities due to water sparsity (we run entirely on tank water). A laundromat is available in Port Arthur & Sorell.
Interaction with guests
Details on collecting the key/gaining access will be sent the day before your arrival.
We're happy to leave you alone, but we're also happy to help with ideas for sight seeing and activities or help solve any problems that might arise during your stay.
Other things to note
I may (work dependent) also be on the property in a self-contained space, 70m from the house. The house itself and immediate surrounds remains entirely yours. If you have any questions about this just ask!
- Please conserve water, no baths during summer (house is on tank water)
- Smokers please only smoke at rear of house near BBQ and dispose of butts carefully (high fire risk)
- Enjoy & respect the space
- Books are not to be taken outside of the house - if you accidentally take one home, please send it back to me
- Please do not wear shoes indoors (bring slippers if you can!)
- Do not light any fires outside - fires are only permitted indoors within the designated fireplace. Use of candles is not permitted.
- Suitable for all children, however please note the house has not been made child safe, so the safety of your child is your own responsibility.
It's been a dream of mine to have a house near the ocean in Tasmania for many years - this dream is now shared with others through Airbnb when I am away traveling and working. I enjoy cold climates, long distance offshore sailing, surfing, renewables, oceans, wood fires, great expanses and books.
Charts and sailing paraphernalia around my Airbnb house were used in actual transoceanic navigation during my solo voyages across the Atlantic & Pacific oceans.
My book collection has been collected over many years, half of which were carted across oceans in my small boats, named Constellation & Harmony.
