We think our architecturally designed house is a perfect romantic getaway. We built it for the view, so you can relax with a coffee/wine and enjoy the best of Tasmania's east coast, in comfort. Stroll along the deserted beach & read or listen to our record collection by the fire.

The space

Private bush and beach setting. Very new architecturally designed one bedroom house. This is a quiet, 'non-touristy' area, but in view of Tasmania's East Coast icons. The beach is really long and it's often hard to spot others enjoying it.

Fully self contained. All linen provided.
The kitchen has brand new, quality, oven, rangehood, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, cutlery and crockery etc, etc. No dishwasher I'm afraid. The bathroom has a big shower area, new efficient flush toilet (on a septic system).
There is no laundry. But there's a laundromat in Swansea, ten minutes away. And there likely are people close by who work as cleaners and would be willing to do washing.
We're on tank water, so there's no spa, and water isn't unlimited. But we haven't needed to be overly careful in the past, to get through the summer with our tanks (10,000L for domestic plus 10,000L reserved for fire). We use water more or less as if we were on the town supply.
There is a wood heater and plenty of wood if the weather turns nasty, but this is a warm house, so it's very unlikely you'll need it in the warmer months.
There's a renovated record player and a library of records.

Key collectable from key-safe at gate. Call us the morning of the day of your arrival, and we'll advise the code.
At times we'll be staying nearby and will be available to show guests the property.

Very quiet area. Five acre lots with non permanent residents. The beach is often completely empty (all nine miles). Beautiful, abundant bird and wildlife. Open up the big sliders in the morning and listen to the amazing birdlife.
Occasionally we see a snake in warmer months, so keep a watch out when you're on the beach track.
You can catch flathead off the beach, if you're patient. A kayak will improve your chances.
The beach faces due south and catches a consistent swell. It can be really fun to body surf, and occasionally it's wild. You need to be careful with very small children or non-proficient swimmers. But there are safe places for littleuns to swim nearby.
From 'the Lighthouse' you are close (45 min) to iconic Coles Bay and Freycinet, and Maria Island ferry service (50min). We won't try to list all the east coast attractions here.
Things to do at our place though, include: everything that might involve the view, and coffee and reading and games and music; beach walks or rides; swimming and body surfing; fishing; sailing. Visit yellowbanks on the lagoon, or the mouth of the lagoon where many people fish and swim, and the pelicans and waterbirds are amazing.


There is a caravan on the lower quarter of this five acre block, obscured by bush. At times we might be using this caravan, but our guests in the lighthouse will have complete privacy. Guests have a separate track to the beach.

Our stay at the lighthouse was fantastic. The house is clean, light and has the most spectacular view over the Hazards. We came away from our trip feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. This is definitely a wonderful place for a getaway, and we'd love to come back one day.

This is a special place. Great light, sky, changing colours of the mountains and the sea. Very comfortable and private and to top it off we saw dolphins swimming along dolphin sands. Just magical.

The Lighthouse is a breathtaking paradise. The views are amazing, the house is beautiful & Mick and Lisa are very accommodating. I cannot wait to return.

A beautifully designed one bedroom house in one of the most spectacular locations I have ever seen. We stayed for 3 wonderful days - I only wish it could have been longer. Hosts were terrific and always replied quickly to any quations we had. Highly recommended

We loved our stay at the Lighthouse and would have loved a longer stay. It really is a warm winter getaway with fantastic views and a great location. The house is warm and welcoming, beautiful and better than the pictures give it credit. The sun comes in from every corner of the house and the stars at night are spectacular. Close enough to Freycinet National Park if you are looking for some great walks with stunning views and directly on a beautiful beach. This is a quiet and peaceful stay and we would recommend a visit to anyone. Lisa and Mick were easy to contact and very helpful. Looking forward to another holiday in Tas.

Thank you for such a wonderful house. I felt like I was in a movie! Really wish we stayed a few more days. We will be back.

we are both in our latter years i guess (more than 40 (quite a bit), less than 60!). we have three grown up kids: an architect, a nurse, an electrician. We're family people. Our kids still have a nan and a Pa, both still active and tuned in, and a whole bunch of aunties and uncles and cousins. we're both teachers, but haven't always been. when we don't have guests, I think our favourite place in the world to be is at the Lighthouse, pottering around in the garden, or walking the dog on the beach, or just loving it. And in recent years, a lot of our spare time has gone into the building of this place. But we also travel. We were in Africa a few years ago. Spain and Italy recently. and more on the horizons I suspect!
