My husband and I chose Beachbreaks for a 3 night stay on the East Coast. This is a self contained small 2 bedroom house which is on a rise overlooking farmland, a vineyard and the ocean in the distance. It does feel like you are living in a remote area of Tassie in your own home when staying here so I can see why it has appealed to others. For me it is a little too remote and by that I mean it is at least a 15 minute drive to anywhere. This means that you need to be prepared with all your meals. Although in the fridge was a loaf of bread, a carton of milk and condiments, which was very thoughtful. The view is lovely, the woodwork throughout is rustic, the kitchen very adequate and the heating works well. The bathroom is near the entrance and contains the laundry, no ensuite here. There was also a lot of tiny centipedes and slaters wandering around the bathroom at night and dead on the floor in the morning. The closest town is Dunally with a couple of good cafes and a hotel. I can see why Beachbreaks appeals to certain people but I think I am just over the whole "self Contained" thing when provisions are not close by or easy to get.…
Our latest stay at Beachbreaks[Bungalow] was probably visit No 12 or 13, yet we still get the same sense that we got when we first saw this little gem of accomodation in Tassie. Dave and Steph still the best hosts that you could encounter,and I'd like to think good friends, which makes our stays even more enjoyable. Perfectly clean Bungalow, Steph's "home made" native garden, Dave's self light B.B.Q ,pristine beaches, and day trips we haven't seen yet. All ensures a great holiday. Can't add to that, except if you haven't tried it, try to!
We found this gem in Tassie 7 years ago and look forward to a revisit each year. The cleanliness and attention to detail does not falter. Those views from "the bungalow" are stunning. Top it off with lovely owners and it makes for a serene, delightful break from city life.
My wife and I just came back from a trip to Tasmania, spent 5 nights at Beackbreaks in Marion Bay. I cant recommend this place more both David and Stephanie were great, we stayed at the retreat and we couldnt have asked for a more beautiful, comfortable place with a stunning view of the surrounding country side, mountains and Marion bay. All facilities were provided, the retreat itself is amazing, decks out front to relax and take in the view, so quiet and relaxing all you can hear is the finches and wrens singing. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
The bungalow is by far our favourite place to stay in Tassie. Tasmania is beautiful, the views and environs of Beachbreaks make the most of it. This was our 6th stay and are booked in for next year. The quality and cleanliness has never faulted. Dave and Steph are delightful hosts with a passion for where they live.
