Description from owner


Luxury modernist beach house retreat on Tasmania's beautiful East Coast. Deluxe, multi-award winning headland retreat overlooking Great Oyster Bay towards Maria Island, just a stones throw from Swansea.

Enjoy the delightful breakfast provisions and plan your day or don’t plan your day – just let it evolve. You can simply sit and read the interesting books from the Avalon collection, swim at the secluded beach at the bottom of the path, go fishing, walking, collect shells or head to Swansea or Freycinet to enjoy the splendor of the east coast.

Light the fire, pour a glass of selected Tasmanian wine and watch the moon rise over the Freycinet Peninsula. You can watch a DVD from Avalon’s library or just snuggle up on her lichen inspired orange couch. Sleep in the Stuart Houghton custom 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 the mother retreat to Rocky Hills Retreat, also on the east coast, just up the hill. And Avalon City Retreat in Hobart CBD, a perfect stop over if flying out of Hobart.

We are the proud winners of the 2018 Tasmanian Tourism Awards 'Best Self Contained Accommodation'. Silver in the 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards 'Best Self Contained Accommodation'. 2014 and 2017 Tasmanian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame.
