Spring Beach Holiday House

371 Rheban Road, Spring Beach, Tasmania

Welcome to Spring Beach Holiday House, a traditional beach shack near Orford on Tasmania’s east coast. With its million-dollar ocean views and virtually waterfront position on pristine Spring Beach, the house has been enjoyed by family, friends and guests since the 1970s.

In 2016 the House was fully renovated (new kitchen, new bathroom, large new deck, polished floors, heating, etc) to provide modern quality facilities while maintaining its original homey feel.

The rustic vertical board cottage sits at the southern end of the beach, looking out over Mercury Passage to the ocean and Maria Island. It is absolute waterfront, the closest to the water of all the houses in Spring Beach, with superb views. With no roads to cross, it is 50m and a minute’s walk to the beach and close enough to the ocean to be lulled to sleep by the waves at night. Much-loved by many over the years, we know you’ll be seduced by this Holiday House.

Just loved the shack – has such a warm, cosy feel to it. Read the history at the front of this (guest) book and can understand why this place feels so welcoming from the moment you walk in. Will be back.
