Thalia Haven is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the clear blue waters of renowned Great Oyster Bay. Experience Tasmania's wild East Coast from a unique perspective. Thalia offers five kilometers of secluded coastline including your own private golden sand beach. Four stone cottages surround olive-tree courtyards on the ocean's edge. The residence is a bold yet congenial showcase of self-reliance: your water, electricity and warmth are drawn from its land, breezes, and sunshine. Rustic, yes, but fear not: all the comforts you need to relax, enjoy, and explore are at hand, and you are only an hour from Hobart airport. Awake to the sound of the sea, as rays from the rising sun play on the granite Hazards of Freycinet across the bay. Rock-hop to wander on your beach. ...Thalia Haven is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the clear blue waters of renowned Great Oyster Bay.

Awake to the sound of the sea, as rays from the rising sun play on the granite Hazards of Freycinet across the bay. Rock-hop to wander on your beach. With windswept hair and the taste of the salt spray on your skin, yield to the invitation of an outdoor bath under the stars. Relax in your wood-fired sauna. Be spellbound by the moon rising over the bay. Prepare a gourmet extravaganza in your professionally equipped kitchen. Relax by a roaring fire. Day-dream, rock-hop, reconnect, sip. Thalia Haven is for people seeking relaxation and seclusion in a spectacular wild setting an hour's drive from Hobart airport. More than just you? Thalia offers four separate cottages sleeping up to 8 people. You'll find ample space for your group to cook, eat, and play together. The main building has space for a crowd, with huge open fireplaces in the dining and living rooms. The arrangement of bedroom pavilions around the central courtyard means there is plenty of space to be together -- or to be apart. Thalia is stocked with games, puzzles, paints. And you are ideally located to take advantage of Tasmania's East Coast's many pleasures: Wineglass Bay, the Douglas-Apsley National Park, Maria Island, and the east coast wine route are all pleasant day trips from Thalia. Thalia offers an unforgettable holiday experience by the sea.More
