Come stay with us in our home, in Coles Bay Tasmania, gateway to the world famous Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park.
Our rooms have King Size Beds & private en-suite. There's free NBN Wifi, Netflix and LCD Smart TV's. Enjoy a complimentary breakfast with pastries, cereals, yoghurt & fruit, either in your room, the guest lounge, or outside on the deck.
We also have a BBQ area and fire pit for relaxed evenings under the stars. Come see why we made Coles Bay & Freycinet our home!
We have two bedrooms downstairs in our home giving our guests privacy from us, and other guests. The bedrooms are large. The king size beds are new, and can be split to 2 singles if needed. The decor is modern. The en-suite is fully tiled. We have NBN Internet, Netflix and Stan streaming TV and a 40" LCD Smart TV in each room.
For breakfast there's cereals, Tasmanian yoghurt, Tasmanian fruits (where we can), bread, spreads, coffee, teas & juices, plus whatever we've come up with for that day. Just help yourself to what you want. If you have any special dietary requirements, let us know in advance and we'll do our best to have something equivalent for you.
If you want to grab take away for dinner you can eat at home too. There's some great places to eat in Coles Bay too. Ask us for our favourites. Or BBQ for yourselves here. We have BBQ packs and with notice can make a salad for you too.
We have some mini bar items, like soft drinks, bottled water and wine. We will more than likely also have Melshell Oysters that you can buy from us, shucked or un-shucked. Practice shucking oysters and impress your friends when you get home! Stay 3 nights and we'll give you a dozen oysters and a bottle of wine for free.
We've built the house mostly ourselves. Yes, we have the emotional scaring to back it up! We're still doing some landscaping but that shouldn't interfere with your stay. You might find an outside wall is partly tiled, or there's a wire fence we haven't replaced yet. It won't change how comfy the bed is after your day walking in the Park!
In addition to your own room, there's a common room with a couple of couches and a big telly, for relaxing and chatting, with a table we can unfold if that's where you want to eat breakfast. Otherwise, off the common room is an outdoor deck area with a large table. There's also a table in your room and you can eat there if you want privacy.
There's an outdoor area with a BBQ and a fire pit if you want to spend an evening under the stars.
If you want to borrow some fishing gear or a bike let us know. You need to have your own bike helmet. We have a kayak too and life jackets. It can expand to a double kayak. Anything else you need, ask and hopefully we can help.
We're around most of the time. We'll try not to get in your way.
At times we can be away at short notice as we're both emergency service volunteers. Emergency services in Coles Bay are volunteer run so it's important we do our bit for our small community. Don't worry if we're not around when you check in. There's a key pad lock on the doors and we can give you the code to get in.
We've been either living or holidaying in Coles Bay for 20+ years for Jen, and for Mark, all his life, so we have knowledge of walks, beaches, fishing, snorkelling, restaurants, tours and activities, 4WD tracks etc... Feel free to ask if you're stuck.
We have a dog, Gemma. She's a border collie. She's blonde, she's pretty, she's shameless and she loves people. It's up to you how much you want to interact with her.
We've listed this in House Rules too.
We're on tank water. The Freycinet region is a low rainfall area and often in drought, so we encourage people to be water wise.
If you're looking for dates well in advance, let us know. We can open them up on our booking system is required.
Not many rules.
We're on tank water so we'd appreciate you being water wise. Like, don't run the tap while you're brushing your teeth. Don't spend 20 minutes in the shower. Sorry but we'll probably say no if you want to wash your car.
Be respectful of other guests. There may be other people staying in the other bedroom, at the other end of the house.
Let us know if there's a problem or anything we can help you with. Sometimes we can help, sometimes we can't. We will try.
It's no smoking inside thanks, but you can smoke outside the house on the property. Again, be respectful of others when doing so.
Finally, enjoy all that Freycinet has to offer. Hopefully you'll fall in love with our secluded part of the world, just like we did.
