A walk into Wineglass Bay
Freycinet Eco Luxe is uniquely located in the heart of Tasmania’s oldest and most visited national park. Designed by Hobart architects Michael Shapnel and Stephen Geason, the environmentally sensitive house is nestled amongst endemic flora, surrounded by the crystal blue waters of Coles Bay and extraordinary pink granite mountain range known as The Hazards. Just a short stroll from the front door leads you to the stunning and very private Fisheries Beach with immediate access to Freycinet National Park and world famous Wine Glass Bay.
This coastal beach house has been carefully designed to create open, light, airy spaces where over-sized double-glazed windows invite the outside in. The design has been carefully crafted to enable visitors to immerse themselves in the surrounding forest, enjoy treetop views across Coles Bay and while you lie in bed, gaze up at the spectacular pink granite ‘Hazards’ mountains.
During your stay its likely you’ll meet all sorts of wonderful local wildlife, including parrots, kookaburras, wallabys, tawny frog mouths and echidnas. At your fingertips will be morning walks up to the famous Wineglass Bay Lookout, mountain biking to the big surf at Friendly Beaches, rock climbing at Bluestone Bay, swimming and snorkeling at Coles Bay, kayaking in Great Oyster Bay or simply relaxing amongst the trees on the north facing deck.
Freycinet Eco Luxe offers three bedrooms with two bedrooms upstairs and a large bedroom with ensuite downstairs. Much of the furniture is handmade by renowned Tasmanian fine furniture maker Rex Heathcote, with our private art collection adding a visual feast. The large double-glazed windows, reverse-cycle air conditioning and free standing open fire means you will always be comfortable, whatever the weather.
The house even has its own mooring, located close to the Fisheries Beach, so bring your boat – up to 20 feet – and moor it (almost) at the doorstep!
Freycinet Eco Luxe is minutes to Coles Bay Village, and a whole range of activities to suit every taste. Surrounded by nature and world famous scenery, we invite you to relax and luxuriate in your home away from home.
Freycinet Eco Luxe is registered to sleep six people with 2 people accommodated in each bedroom. The downstairs bedroom can be configured in different ways depending on your needs. This bedroom has external access only.
The entire house comprises the main living area inclusive of kitchen, dining and living rooms with a free-standing open fire (with screen) sitting on a hearth of rare pink Coles Bay granite.
Furniture includes a handmade eight-seater myrtle dining table with leather dining chairs, Huon Pine dresser and Myrtle cabinet.
The master bedroom and study boast views to Mt Amos and includes a handmade dark myrtle queen size bed. The second upstairs bedroom has two hand-made Tasmanian Oak single beds (configured as two bunk beds but only available as two singles), with forest and water views. Both bedrooms share the bathroom that boasts views of Mt Amos directly from our Philippe Starck bath.
Laundry facilities include a Bosch front loader washing machine.
The downstairs bedroom, complete with ensuite, comprises a queen size bed, or Tasmanian Oak bunks if you prefer.
