The SpaceFeaturing an open plan living/dining kitchen, and an enormous, partially glassed- in deck, to protect you in all weather. There are 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. The master has a queen size bed, built-in robes, doors which open out onto the deck, and an en-suite. The en-suite has heated flooring and towel rail, large walk in shower, vanity, toilet and bidet. The second queen bedroom has not only a huge window so you can enjoy the views, but also double doors, and built-in robe. The third bedroom features sliding door out to the deck, again with views from the bedroom over the Bay of Fires, built in robe and a double bed. The second bathroom is just across the hall from the other bedrooms, and has just had a brand new make-over, so now features under floor heating, heated towel rails and brand new vanity/toilet/shower.
The brand new kitchen has it all. Upmarket appliances, one button Jurra coffee machine, (plunger if you prefer), hotplates, dishwasher, convection microwave, toaster, electric frypan and kettle, cutlery, glasses, crockery and kitchen utensils, with a full size fridge and freezer.

The outside entertaining area is a huge, modern deck. Lined on one side with wall to ceiling glass, so you can enjoy it all year round. There is an outdoor dining setting which seats 8, and a family size WeberQ BBQ. And did I mention the views?

The NeighborhoodThe Bay of Fires was named as the world's hottest travel destination in 2009 by Lonely Planet.
A quote from smh's news article..."The Bay is described by Lonely Planet as "a castaway bay" with a 29 kilometres ribbon of sea and surf spooling out from the old whaling town of St Helens, on Tasmania's north-east coast.
"White beaches of hourglass-fine sand, Bombay Sapphire sea, an azure sky - and nobody," the guide says.
"This is the secret edge of Tasmania, laid out like a pirate's treasure map of perfect beach after sheltered cove, all fringed with forest.
"It's not long since the Bay of Fires came to international attention, and the crowds are bound to flock. Now is the time to visit."

Take a boat tour with BAY OF FIRES ECO TOURS - see website - and get to see the whole of the Bay of Fires from the ocean - which is really the best way!
Book at MORESCO RESTAURANT and walk down for a meal
Buy the best oysters in Australia at LEASE 65 just a few kms away and bring them home with a bottle of wine to eat on the deck (oyster shucker available)
Visit CAPTAINS CATCH or SALTY SEAS in St Helens for fresh seafood direct from the boat.
Grab some supplies at EAST COAST PROVEDORE opposite the Post Office - wonderful Tasmanian fresh produce. Getting AroundThere is a bus service to St Helens from Launceston and Hobart, however no public transport the last 12kms to the Bay of Fires. There is however car hire available in St Helens and a Taxi! But you really need to drive. Other Things to NoteFrom the house, don't forget to keep a look out for the dolphins frolicking in the bay.
