About this home

The Hideaway is a unique, secluded beachfront property sitting on a rocky bluff in the historic township of Swansea on the magnificent east coast of Tasmania. Hear the waves lapping on the beach below. Be mesmerized by the 180° view over Oyster Bay, Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island. Feel the sea breeze. Walk directly onto the sand where you have 9 miles of beach ready to explore. Relax, catch up, enjoy.


Adventure awaits



Swansea is ideally situated to become your base for exploring the Tasmanian East Coast. It is less than 2 hours to both Launceston and Hobart. It is 45 minutes drive to Freycinet National Park or to the ferry to Maria Island National Park. Swansea is well known for boating, kayaking and fishing. Nearby there are opportunities for bushwalking, mountain biking, surfing and scuba diving.





Spectacular Food and Wine



Swansea has an impressive array of cafes and restaurants. Within easy walking distance (via the beach) are Artifact Gallery & Café, Saltshaker Restaurant & Café and Oyster Bay Seafoods. Piermont Restaurant is a multi award winning venue 5 minutes south of Swansea. The Barkmill Tarvern is a wonderful family restaurant and boasts a bakery and museum.

    Amazing!

    The most wonderful couple of days in Swansea! The house was perfect and the views were incredible! The weather was not great and we walked in and the fire was ready to be lit with plenty of firewood - so nice to sit in front of the fire looking out to the ocean! Andrew was wonderful offering some great recommendations for our stay! Highly recommend!!

    Beautiful location

    We loved our stay here. The location is perfect. The view is stunning. Beds were super comfy and the open fire was lovely on the cooler nights. The check in/check out is easy and communication with Andrew was good. The only minor let down is the bathroom. Not a massive issue tho it's just old but still clean. Thank you Andrew for having us stay in your holiday shack it is a beautiful spot.

    Perfect spot

    Excellent bolt hole by the beach. Private and charming, and only a short walk from town or the nearby tavern.

    Hideaway

    The property is amazing. The only drawback is the parking. The narrow road is something that should be noted and you have to reverse to get out which can be a problem for some people. Apart from that it was good.

    Beach break

    Beautiful property clean and bright. Right on the edge of the beach. Stunning both a night with the moon over the bay but then to top it off the sun rises over the master. Loved it.

    Gorgeous spot, thoughtful touches.

    We had a great time staying at The Hideaway. Beautiful views, sound of the waves crashing, and so close to the beach, the kids loved the little track to the beach and being able to explore. Beds were all super comfortable. Would stay here again for sure.

    Memorable

    Great location,good beds, worth to try. Just a couple things to make it perfect. Coat hangers would be good and proper garden furniture would be welcome. Wi fi would be appreciated, but the place is still worth it. Would love to go back..

    Relaxing and super clean

    Lovely comfortable home right by the beach with older style furniture but suited to the house. Good quality bedding and towels. Very happy with everything.
