About this listing
Our new eco studios (there will be eight) are available to book from late November 2015. These studios have a panoramic view of the Tasman Sea over Saltwater Lagoon on Friendly Beaches. They will be compact and will have a contemporary, edgy feel.
Ready for November 2015 - our brand new Eco Studios (there will be eight in total) will have a panoramic view of the Tasman Sea over Saltwater Lagoon on Friendly Beaches. This is a view that no one else on the East Coast of Tasmania can offer. These Studios will be the only accommodation in Tasmania to currently boast a 6* energy rating, and they will have a contemporary edgy feel to them. They will be compact (26sq metres) but will be equipped with everything that a couple would need for a short break in Freycinet, including a well-equipped kitchenette with a granite work surface and convection/microwave oven, ensuite shower-room, king (6ft) beds and free wifi (which may have to be limited, but we're hoping not depending on NBN capacity!). They will also have underfloor heating in the shower room and a private deck area of 9sq metres with an outside dining setting.
Freycinet Eco Retreat is an Eco Certified 1200 acre "Land for Wildlife" property set in the middle of the Freycinet peninsula adjacent to the National Park, and only a short drive to the World famous Wineglass Bay.
Freycinet Eco Retreat has some stunning views of the peninsula from Friendly Beaches and the Tasman Sea in the east, round to the Hazards mountain range and Great Oyster Bay, which form the backdrop to Coles Bay to the south, and round again to Dolphin Sands and Moulting Lagoon, which is a RAMSARS site to the west.
Interaction with guests
Reception will be manned between 3-5pm each day, but there will generally be someone around on the property. The manager can be contacted by 'phone and will be happy to respond to any queries. Otherwise, guests will be left to enjoy this stunning location.

2. If you cancel or curtail your booking within 30 days before your stay is due to commence then we reserve the right to retain the full payment. Again we shall endeavour to re-let the accommodation, and if successful shall refund the fee less an admin fee of $50.
3. We cannot be held responsible for damages or compensation for cancellation or curtailment in circumstances which amount to a force majeure.
4. Visitors should arrange their own insurance to cover any possible cancellation or curtailment for whatever reason.
5. We would request that you please do not use any massage or baby oil on the beds, or any bleaching agents on the towels as if this occurs we have to replace the damaged items.

We also reserve the right to recharge visitors for any damage that we consider to be over and above normal wear and tear.
6. The water supply at FER is rainwater caught off the roofs of the buildings. The supply is limited, so we would appreciate it if guests are “water conscious” during their stay
7. Please note that much of the property is rough bush and rocky terrain, and whilst you are welcome to walk around, guests are advised to keep to the walking tracks and exercise care on any steep, slippery or uneven surfaces. A downloadable printable map of the property is available on our website.
8. In order to maintain the wild quality of FER and natural respect that animals have for humans, we would request that guests do not feed the wildlife. Pets are not allowed on the premises.
9. Freycinet Eco Retreat is just that - a retreat, and we would request that guests keep noise to a minimum, and do not explore the property by vehicle, so as not to impact on the ability of other guests to enjoy the peaceful privacy of FER. If you plan on getting together with friends in the area who are not staying at FER can you please liaise with us in advance and note that we reserve to refuse entry if we consider the numbers to be unreasonable.
10. We would remind guests that check-out time by 10am on the day of departure and that a housekeeper may arrive at any time after that to commence cleaning.
11. When you leave can you please turn off all heaters and lights so that we can keep our carbon footprint to a minimum.
