My place is close to Beaches, parks, great fishing, bush walks, swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding, wineries, national parks. It's serene, beautiful and comfortable.
The property is well suited to couples, groups of friends, solo adventurers and families (with kids).
Constructed in October of 2016 this brand new 3 bedroom two bathroom beach house is nestled in a quiet cul de sac behind west Shelley beach in a flat area perfect for bike riding. It's a family friendly area with kids able to play ball games on the street and very little traffic. A two minute stroll from the house and you'll be on the sand. The house is close enough to the beach to hear the waves crashing and smell the sea but sheltered enough to avoid most of the chilly afternoon sea breezes. Glimpses of beautiful Prosser's Bay are visible from the deck, living, dining area, front bedroom and swim spa!
Orford Sands beach house is the perfect spot to enjoy all that beautiful Orford has to offer. The picturesque bike friendly coastal gravel track runs along the esplanade just behind the house. Why not walk, run or bike along this track which affords stunning views and winds all the way to the shops, raspins beach, restaurants and fantastic park to the left and the squeaky sands of East Shelley / Spring beaches to the right.
The house includes a large master bedroom with King size bed and ensuite complete with a large walk in shower. A further two large bedrooms are fitted with robes and Queen beds. A second spacious bathroom includes a large shower and a bathtub.
The house comfortably sleeps 6 but can accommodate up to 8 on request if the sofa in the living room is converted to a sofa bed.
On request a cot and high chair can be supplied.
There is a large deck with bbq and comfy outdoor setting to seat 8 for some serious R&R. Pour a wine while you listen to snags sizzling and the waves crashing of an evening or make yourself a coffee to drink while you read a novel or the morning paper on the front porch swing. Just off the deck is an hot water open air shower, perfect to wash off after sandy beach days.There is also a brand new swim spa which is heated for use all year round and at night time.
Interaction with guests
Access to the property is via a key safe. The owners will not be available to greet guests unfortunately however we will be available via phone and email for any queries.
Pets (other than assistance animals) are only allowed at the property if guests seek and secure prior approval from the hosts.
My husband Brendan and I have two young children (our daughter aged 4 and our son aged 7). We also have two dogs.
We recently built a holiday house near the beach in beautiful Orford, about an hour from Hobart, Tasmania where we live and work.
We love travelling overseas and locally although having kids has definitely slowed us down!
We have plenty of experience hosting and staying as guests in others' homes via but we are relatively new to airbnb. Looking forward to trying it out!
