Thalia Haven is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the clear blue waters of renowned Great Oyster Bay. Experience Tasmania's wild East Coast from a unique perspective. Thalia offers five kilometers of secluded coastline including your own private golden sand beach. Four stone cottages surround olive-tree courtyards on the ocean's edge. The residence is a bold yet congenial showcase of self-reliance: your water, electricity and warmth are drawn from its land, breezes, and sunshine. Rustic, yes, but fear not: all the comforts you need to relax, enjoy, and explore are at hand, and you are only an hour from Hobart airport.

Awake to the sound of the sea, as rays from the rising sun play on the granite Hazards of Freycinet across the bay. Rock-hop to wander on your beach. With windswept hair and the taste of the salt spray on your skin, yield to the invitation of an outdoor bath under the stars. Relax in your wood-fired sauna. Be spellbound by the moon rising over the bay. Prepare a gourmet extravaganza in your professionally equipped kitchen. Relax by a roaring fire. Day-dream, rock-hop, reconnect, sip. Thalia Haven is for people seeking relaxation and seclusion in a spectacular wild setting an hour's drive from Hobart airport.

More than just you? Thalia offers four separate cottages sleeping up to 8 people. You'll find ample space for your group to cook, eat, and play together. The main building has space for a crowd, with huge open fireplaces in the dining and living rooms. The arrangement of bedroom pavilions around the central courtyard means there is plenty of space to be together -- or to be apart.

Thalia is stocked with games, puzzles, paints. And you are ideally located to take advantage of Tasmania's East Coast's many pleasures: Wineglass Bay, the Douglas-Apsley National Park, Maria Island, and the east coast wine route are all pleasant day trips from Thalia. Thalia offers an unforgettable holiday experience by the sea.

We were 4 adults, 3 children and 3 dogs and found the set up just perfect! There was plenty of space for us all. My immediate thought on entering the house was I just knew 3 nights wouldn't be en… More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review! I'm glad that you all found ways to relax and enjoy our summer's long days and calm nights. I hope you think of us next time your travels bring you to our beautiful East Coast.

"Put the tablet,laptop and mobile away and recharge your life"

My Wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon and had a very relaxing time. We were able to really soak up the ocean views and sea breeze whilst we were hanging out and it was a great place to c… More

I'm glad you were able to relax and enjoy -- and I'm honoured that you chose us for part of your honeymoon! We'd love to welcome you back some day.

"This is one of those places you just have to visit!"

Watching the tides roll in and out from the kitchen window as we cooked up a storm. Sharing our beach with nesting travellers from the other side of the planet. Most of us rarely have the chance to … More

Thank you for your lovely review -- I'm so glad your group was able to relax and re-group. It's always so restorative to live by the rhythms and changing moods of ocean and tides, such a break from the daily pressures of alarm clock, school bus and traffic :) We've put it some new games since your visit, as well as a high chair and baby cot with beautiful organic cotton sheets and bamboo blankets, so soft to the touch... Please come again!

10 retired couples had the most magnificent 4 day stay at what I can only describe as the nearest thing to paradise I have ever seen. The scenery was to "die for" and the Eco friendly house … More

"Breathtaking spot for our getaway -- so worth the trip to Tasmania!"

There really are not enough words to describe how magical our stay was -- I could write 10,000 here and not even come close. Thalia Haven really is heaven on Earth -- we had such a relaxing time explo… More

I'm so happy to hear you had such a nice holiday with us! Given how widely travelled you two are, your comments really mean something for us. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

"Wonderful holiday destination for our family"

Thalia Haven is our favourite holiday destination! We got married at Thalia and have been back twice, now with our children. We love the location and the peace and quiet. We love the beach and the sau… More

I don't normally write reviews for these sites, but I decided to in this case after I read one of the other reviews here. I worry it might mislead some people, and risk them missing a wonderful … More

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Given that your wife is a chef, your happiness with our kitchen means a lot to us. We hope to welcome you back to Thalia Haven during your next visit to Tasmania.

"Beautiful position - badly kept."

Thalia has been built beautifully and is in an incredible setting. The bath outside is a lovely addition. HOWEVER the whole place was very dirty, we had to clean everywhere - especially the kitchen. I… More

Thank you for taking the time to review Thalia Haven. Even though your comments came 9 months after your stay, your opinion is important to us: we want to get things right for our visitors. For example, because of the feedback you gave me at checkout, we immediately changed our cleaning crew for a much more professional outfit. And we updated our kitchenware to offer new pots, pans, place settings, and cutlery. As I said at the time, I wish you had contacted me during your stay: we can't fix things unless we know that something needs changing! At the time, you confirmed that my offer of an over 10% refund was fair, so I hope you still think so now that so much time has elapsed. Honest feedback has always helped us improve what we offer our guests, so again, thank you for your comments, and above all, thank you for choosing Thalia for your holiday in Tasmania.

"Wonderfully warm and sunny in the winter"

Thalia Haven is an amazing house in a beautiful location. It is a wonderful place to stay with friends or family because it sleeps 8 - 10 people in various combinations. There are 4 bedrooms, all very… More

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased that your group had such a relaxing time! We've always found that the configuration of cottages arranged around the courtyard works well to allow group members to be together, or to have time to themselves. And yes, winter is wonderful at Thalia, calm, warm, with plenty of sunshine -- and the pleasure of cracking fires. Thank you for sending in your comments!
