Closest to the beach, Spring Beach Holiday House is a traditional beach shack – one of the first built in the area. In 2016 it had an extensive upgrade (new kitchen, new bathroom, large new deck with outside bath, beach shower and brazier, polished floors, heating, etc) which provide modern quality facilities while maintaining its original homey feel.
Located on Tasmania's sunshine east coast only 5 minutes' drive south of Orford, Spring Beach Holiday House dates from the 1940s and 1950s and has been in the family since the 1970s.
The vertical board house sits at the southern end of the beach, looking out over the ocean towards Mercury Passage and Maria Island. It is absolute waterfront, the closest to the water of all the houses in Spring Beach. With no roads to cross, it is 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 place.
