Still - to remain at rest. A destination in itself. A hygge-inspired, Nordic sauna escape overlooking the rugged dunes of Sandpiper Beach on the doorstep of Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park. Soak up the breathtaking views of the Hazards and practice the "Nordic cycle" using the private sauna and outdoor shower area. Wake up to experience the stunning pastel skies at sunrise and enjoy multiple areas for relaxation, all while enjoying some of the best wines and food Tasmania has to offer.
Still is brand new. It is an architecturally designed Nordic-inspired Retreat. Every detail has been considered to make your experience unforgettable. Hygge - Still has been created with the Danish concept of hygge at the forefront. A mood of cosiness and comfort with feelings of wellness and contentment. Hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. Ideal - Still is just as perfect as a romantic getaway as it is for a group of close friends meeting up to experience Coles Bay/Freycinet National Park differently.
Entertain - A fully equipped coffee bar and kitchen await. A massive kitchen island, using Tasmanian timber and granite bench tops, provides a space for a crowd (if you feel like sharing your time with others). Our beautifully appointed kitchen has everything you need to create sumptuous grazing plates or gourmet feasts. A contemporary dining room and perfectly positioned lounge area share views of the ocean. A double-sided fireplace separates the main living areas. Two extensive decks sit on either side of the house and there is immediate access to each. There is a sneaky, separate reading room with a giant day bed (perfect for settling in with a good book on a miserable day) and a pull-out queen sofa for extra guests that need a safe place to rest. Tales by the fire - In the winter months, you may wish to follow the steps from the dwelling to the gigantic fire pit area, a breathtaking view from a different perspective. Watch the boats pass by, see the dolphins playing and witness the colours of the Hazards changing in the distance. As evening falls, enjoy a glass of wine by the fire, and provide yourself with the opportunity to sit, reflect and appreciate the Stillness. Explore - If you love the beach, there is protected swimming a short walk over the dunes. You could take an easier route from the Sandpiper beach entry if that suits you too. Why not grab our picnic gear (picnic basket with supplies, sand chairs, an umbrella, and billabong rug)? Always take care when swimming as conditions can change from time to time and no lifeguards are on duty. If you feel like exploring the area Still is a perfect base to access local attractions including Freycinet National Park, Bicheno and Swansea, or take a day trip to St Helens, The Bay of Fires, and the many other stunning east coast beaches and hikes this pristine region has to offer. Explore and discover some of the delicious local wine and fresh produce from one of the most pristine areas on the planet. Still is a place to rest, reflect, and enjoy.
