About Catherine Hughes
We are a family of 5. Have always enjoyed local summer holidays at beachside locations including Orford. Love lots of different water sports and we reside in Hobart.
Catherine Hughes purchased this House in 2005
Why Catherine Hughes chose Orford
Our place is lovely all year round. We chose to buy in Orford as we have spent many years holidaying here with our children. As it’s so flat bike riding was the best form of transport as is a relaxing walk along the beach or seaside tracks. Easy access to shops, golf courses and boating. We would often head to Chinamans Bay by boat on Maria Island and enjoy some fresh flatties on the BBQ.
What makes this House unique
We love the view from the living room and 2 bedrooms. We love the wood heater on a cold winters night as the house is really cosy. Watch the kids in front on the beach.
We are outside friendly for 1 pet.

A very relaxing break
Amazing location with beautiful views.
Very spacious property with enough room for families. Convenient, well equipped and comfortable house.
Orford haven for families
On the shoreline of Shelley Beach sits the family friendlyOrford on the Beach House. With 3 grandkids in tow we all enjoyed the location, close to the beach, snorkelling, fishing and lazing about. With a big yard the kids had free space to play games, hone their cricket skills, and enjoy the break. Recommended
Great place to stay
Catherine was very helpful, especially as we had a large group and couldn't confirm the final number of guests until late.
Thank you David for staying.
It's a lovely property and Orford is a lovely place for a holiday.
This was my second year spending a week at Orford on the Beach and I cannot say enough good things about this house. I visit from the USA every year to visit my elderly parents who have a beach house nearby in Orford. We use Orford on the Beach as a place for our family to gather and share meals. The location is perfect and the house exudes relaxation and charm. We will certainly be back for another week next year!!
A wonderful place to enjoy the many beaches, walking paths and relaxed lifestyle.
A very well thought out home with plenty of living areas, inside and out, different sleeping areas which easily accommodated 2 couples and 2 toddlers. A fully equipped kitchen and playroom complete with toys added to our stay.
