The SpaceIn the house we have a cosy self contained apartment that is suitable for up to 6 persons as it has a queen sized bed with ensuite in main bedroom, and 2 single beds in second bed room, 1 double bed in third bedroom, own entrance, and fully equipped kitchen. There is a family bathroom with walk in shower and bath. There is a reverse cycle air conditioner in the living room. On our small farm of 9 acres we are following permaculture principles to grow fruit, nuts, vegetables and berries without using artificial fertilizers and sprays as we are semi retired and love the garden. In our area are cow and goat dairy farms, potato cropping farms, berry farms, walnut orchard, Gunns Plains Caves, Wings Wildlife Park, Leven Canyon, bush walking trails and feature gardens of temperate climate. Cradle Mountain is a 1 1/2 hour drive. Our location is 3 kilometers from the sea and lovely garden and sea views from front of house. We also have chickens and a friendly dog. Our nearest large town of Burnie is 15 minutes drive away. Sorry no public transport is available nearby. There are private and public buses on the main Bass highway (Number One) 3 kilometres away with a steep hill between our place and the highway. Your own transport to get around is advisable. If on a bicycle be prepared to walk beside it up the hill. Renee is fluent in English, Creole and Swahili. Guest AccessThere is table tennis in the enclosed patio and gardens to explore. Interaction with GuestsWe enjoy conversations with our guests if they wish, especially about permaculture, environment protection and sustainability, gardening, music, and stained glass windows, and discussing various viewpoints. Four o'clock seems a civilized time to have a cup of tea and chat. However, if people just come to have time to themselves, that is fine as well. We live on the same property in a cottage 50 meters away behind mature trees and are present during guest's stays. The NeighborhoodWe love this area for its natural beauty, lots of sunshine and peace and quiet. As we grow various fruits, herbs, nuts, vegetables and flowers, the soil is so fertile, many things seed themselves and come up spontaneously. Getting AroundSorry, in this rural area public transport is not available. There is parking 5 meters from your entrance door, with level access. From Launceston airport, there is a shuttle bus service into Launceston, and a Redline Bus service that stops at Heybridge, which is 3 kilometres from our place. Otherwise, you can bring your own car by ferry from Melbourne or hire a car. Other Things to NoteWe live in a rural area, and appreciate guests who dispose of rubbish by recycling. We have a box for paper and cardboard, a bin for recycling bottles and tins, a container under the sink for biodegradable food waste to use in our worm farm. This helps us grow our fruit and vegetables using natural methods, without artificial fertilizers and pesticides when possible. We do have organically grown fruit and berries from the garden which we like to share with guests in limited quantities if they wish. We do not encourage guests picking their own or helping themselves, as it takes much effort and planning on our part to grow them, and it is our salary from the local market to us. We are not on town water, are dependent on rainwater tanks and a bore, so conservation of water is also important.

            The SpaceYou go to sleep to the whispering sound of the waves, you wake to the view of the low surf and across to the horizon. You walk 9m out along the timber boardwalk from the lounge, and step onto beautiful soft sand. Are you on for an early morning dip? This cottage is on the sand, literally. The cottage was once a beach "shack" that has just been totally renovated, and is quite delightful. On the beach, facing north, looking out across the strait towards Victoria on the Australian mainland. It captures all the sun, and is warm winter and summer. The reverse cycle air conditioner/heater deals with the rest. It is light and airy, and we rarely have flies, and no mosquitoes. Doors and windows stay open often day and night. It is close to the street on a "no thru" road, with a covered car port at the front door. There is level access into the cottage, and just one step inside. whilst not perfect for the disabled, its very good for someone with some mobility issues. Please talk to us about what you need and whether we meet your requirements. Families are very welcome, understanding that children must be supervised at all times. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and a superb view of the surf to the horizon - from bed. In the main bedroom there is a walk in closet and shelving, dressing table/desk and chair, crisp white linen, plenty of pillows, spare blankets, electric blanket, bed lamps, ceiling fan. The second bedroom has a single bed and single trundle bed which will lift up on legs to normal height (or be used at the lower level which seems to work well for small children). If one person is using the room the second bed is out of the way concealed beneath the other bed. There is a large 3 door wardrobe with lots of shelves, bedside table and lamp, fan, full length mirror etc. The bathroom has a generous shower, vanity and toilet, lots of towels, hair drier, tissues, toilet paper. The laundry alcove has a trough and automatic washing machine, iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner, brooms, and there is a clothes line outside. The stunning new kitchen provides dishwasher, microwave, generous fridge/freezer, under bench oven and ceramic hot plates, with all the equipment you could possibly want. The kitchen has a large sliding window to a server bench and BBQ. The dining area seats 6 for dining with "The View". The open plan lounge area has a comfortable double sofa bed with innerspring mattress, large TV, recliner chair etc. The sofa bed is not private of course since the living space forms an open "L" shape. We have provided every comfort we can think of to make your stay enjoyable. The cottage is stunning for two, three, or four adults, perfect for a family with children, and definitely full for six (but fun!) There is a USB charger on one of the power outlets. There is wireless internet access, not fast, but ok. Mobile phone coverage is good. There is a herb garden (help yourself); and a nectarine tree, in season of course. On calm nights you can gather driftwood and light a fire in the outdoor fire pit beside the sand, whilst watching the sun set over the sea. The outdoors are very large, seriously close and stunningly beautiful. The rear deck has outdoor seating and a large beach umbrella, and in the late afternoon it is just lovely to sit there with a glass of bubbly, coffee or whatever takes your fancy. As it becomes darker, the solar lights flicker on in the boardwalk lighting your way to the sand. Guest AccessThe cottage and its land are entirely yours to enjoy. There is parking for 3 vehicles or a camper van or caravan (with 15 amp external power socket). The beach is used generally only by half a dozen local residents. It has sand, rock pools, crabs, swimming, rock, driftwood and shell gathering, within 20m of your back verandah, and all within view of the lounge and kitchen. Snorkel for rock lobsters, catch flathead off the rocks, look out for passing whales, observe shipping for the port of Burnie, the busiest port in Tasmania; put up the shade umbrella and enjoy a drink on the back verandah at sundown while the children hunt for crabs (within view). Interaction with GuestsWe own the cottage adjacent but are only there intermittently. We have a local person who can attend to anything urgent if we are absent. We operated a multi-award-winning boutique hotel and in-house B&B for many years. Now we are retired (almost!) and hope we can provide you with the best possible guest experience. If you find you need something we have overlooked we hope you will ask. You may see us in our yard from time to time but you need only interact with us when you wish to. For some stays we may not be there but will always be available by phone 24/7. The NeighborhoodWe are in a small enclave of old waterside "shacks" on the edge of the bay at Blythe Heads, the mouth of the Blythe River. Our beach shack has been "rebirthed" and is rather special. The street is old, but the neighbours are nice. For us the extremely rare, unique and intimate connection with the beach, and convenience of the nearby highway outweigh the older buildings of our street, but for some of our guests we have been downgraded to a 3 because of this. We don't want anyone to be disappointed, so please consider if this is important to you. We are only 50 m from the main Blythe Heads roundabout, the area is called Heybridge, 6km from Burnie. Very easy to find, and easy as a base to access various Northern Tasmanian attractions. Historic Stanley, Cradle Mountain, Sheffield, Chocolate Factory, Raspberry Farm, Angove Cheese, The Hellyers Road Whisky Distillery, The Purple House at Forth, Penguin shopping, Ulverstone shopping and restaurants, Devonport Spirit of Tasmania (30 minutes) and many more are within easy visiting from here. The smart shopping enclave at Wivenhoe (4km) has cafes (yummy vanilla slice at the bakery) , restaurants, butcher, supermarket, ATM, deli, etc. Getting AroundIf you have a car, then this is great. 50m from the 4 lane highway which takes you to Burnie (5 minutes), Penguin, Ulverstone, Devonport (at 110kmph). If you marked up the NW coast attractions, we are right in the centre. Everything is in easy reach. If you don't have your own transport, we are 100 odd meters from the bus stop, with buses from Launceston and Launceston airport (2 hours), Devonport airport (45 mins), Spirit of Tasmania ferry, Burnie, etc. You can take the bus (every 2 hours approx) into Burnie for supplies etc. This is a cottage that supports you having no transport. If you need information about public transport particularly, please ask. Other Things to NoteOn our little beach we have a small penguin colony, they are hard to see, but with patience you might be lucky. We have gates from the yard to the street. However it is your responsibility that children do not access the street via either gates or front door of the house. Across the road (and 4 m elevated) is the train line. You will hear (and slightly feel!) the trains going through 2 - 4 times a day. They take about a minute to go past. At least you will hear them for the first day: after which time they become part of the environment background noise. There is no fencing at all between the cottage and the sea. It's a peculiar aspect of the town planning of the entire NW coast that most houses "enjoy" a very close acquaintance with the train line, which runs from end to end through all the towns, and some of the most beautiful scenery in Tasmania: sadly it does not take passengers any more.

The sea and beach is a boundary of the main street of Penguin and many have been lucky enough to get a glimpse of dolphins and whales playing just off shore, but if sand is not your thing, just soak up the positive energy of being close to the ocean, or head for some rejuvenating walks with nature in the Dial range 10 minutes by car. Getting AroundStaying in Penguin is central to all the fascinating and incredibly beautiful places to see on the North West Coast. Day trips are an easy drive with Launceston, Cradle Mountain, Stanley (The Nut) and the Tarkine Wilderness approx 1 1/2 hours away. Driving to see The Wall in Derwent Bridge, 2 1/2 hours. Only a 30-minute drive to either Burnie or Devonport, airports or The Spirit of Tasmania.
