Parsons Cove Beach House

Parsons Cove Beach House is uniquely located in the heart of Freycinet National Park, the oldest and one of the most popular national parks in Tasmania. Designed by Hobart architects Michael Shrapnel and Stephen Geason, the environmentally sensitive house sits amongst the trees, endemic flora and crystal blue waters of Coles Bay.

Just a short stroll from the front door leads you to the stunning and very private Fisheries Beach in Parsons Cove, and the world famous Wineglass Bay. Set against the dramatic backdrop of pink granite mountains, known locally as the Hazards, the house is one of very few with immediate access to Freycinet National Park.

The spacious, light-filled interiors are amplified thanks to the oversized double-glazed windows and carefully considered design. With decor featuring the work of renowned Tasmanian furniture maker Rex Heathcote, and a private art collection, the house is registered to accommodate six people and has a wheelchair-friendly ramp for easy access.

The main living area includes a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living room with a free-standing open fire (May to September only) and three spacious bedrooms, two upstairs and one with an ensuite downstairs. Reverse-cycle air conditioning is available upstairs for your comfort during the warmer summer months. The main living area opens out to a very large north facing deck, made from rare recycled Tasmanian Celery Top Pine, with views to enjoy across Coles Bay.

On the main floor, the master bedroom with hand crafted myrtle queen-size bed and study, offer uninterrupted views of Mt. Amos. The second bedroom has two single beds (can be converted into a king bed) with bush and water views and shares a bathroom featuring a luxurious Philippe Starck bath. There are laundry facilities which include a front-loading washing machine. Downstairs, the bedroom has a queen-size bed, a couch and an ensuite. A highchair and porta-cot are also available.

Our location within Freycinet National Park is a privilege, and we take pride in respecting and conserving the ecologically sensitive environment. We invite you to embrace this magnificent natural setting and make Parsons Cove Beach House your home away from home.
