Avalon Coastal Retreat offers contemporary three bedroom accommodation overlooking Great Oyster Bay.

The house, designed by award-winning Australian architect Craig Rosevear, is a stylish blend of steel, glass and timber. It has three queen-size bedrooms and three bathrooms, for a maximum of six people. Avalon is a self-rated 5 star property.

Avalon Coastal Retreat features the work of some of Tasmania’s top furniture designer/makers and artists, and its location will take your breath away. The outlook is the vast emptiness of the Tasman Sea with the Freycinet Peninsula on the horizon.

Just below the house is a secluded beach where you can walk, fish, collect shells, swim in the clear crisp waters or hide away with a book. Look out for the white bellied sea eagle that passes every morning. Body boards and wetsuits are available for use.

You can choose to cook yourself up a storm in Avalon’s beautiful kitchen using your own goodies; or embark on creating a memorable meal using our 'Wursthaus' gourmet mini bar provisions or simply head to Swansea to sample the local restaurants.

Light the fire, pour a glass of selected Tasmanian wine and watch the moon rise over the Freycinet Peninsula or gaze at the stars. You can watch a DVD from Avalon’s library or just snuggle up on her lichen inspired orange couch. Sleep in the Stuart Houghton made Tasmanian oak beds, dream the evening away and awaken to the glorious pre-dawn light.

Surrendering yourself to the Avalon rhythm is a unique experience.

Avalon Coastal Retreat is about an hour and a half drive north of Hobart and around the same time southeast of Launceston.
