AN ORIGINAL 1940'S FISHING SHACK
This lovely 3-bedroom home is perched right on Little Norfolk Bay.
Filled with character, charm and an abundance of Australian artwork, though nothing beats the view of the water by day or blanketing of stars by night. Just 10 mins to Port Arthur and 45 mins from the airport, the shack is the perfect base to explore the spectacular southeast. And with reading nooks aplenty, a wood fire and super fast wifi, it is also the perfect spot to stay in and get cosy.
The shack is just an hour’s drive from Hobart, and yet feels worlds away from it all. The perfect weekend escape!
The space is colourful and comfortable—you won’t find a bigger lounge—and is drenched in natural light. It’s been decorated with love and the walls are an ever evolving gallery of local artists.
There are three bedrooms (2x double, 1x king single/small double) as well as plenty of areas to hang out and socialise or chill out and read, both inside and outside.
It can get cold in winter, but there’s a wood fire, heaters and plenty of blankets. And, as they say, a cardigan to be found in every bottle of wine.
Please be aware that a 1940s shack in rural Tasmania offers a very different experience to a 5-star hotel. But that’s exactly what to love about the place.
Guests have access to the whole house, comprising three bedrooms, bathroom, large open plan living and dining areas, sunroom, huge deck overlooking the bay, tropical garden with hammock, and a lovely fireplace for the winter.
