Wild, secluded, restorative. Thalia Haven is a set of four stone buildings clustered around flowered courtyards just metres from beautiful Great Oyster Bay. Five kilometres of private coastline include your own exclusive white sand beach. Relax with a unique perspective on Tasmania's magnificent east coast.
Awake to the sound of the sea, as rays from the rising sun play on the granite Hazards of Freycinet. Rock-hop to explore the 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. Prepare a gourmet extravaganza in your professionally equipped kitchen. Relax by a roaring fire. Choose a book from the library, play a game from Thalia's selection, or just sit, sip, and watch the moon over the bay.
Thalia offers four bedrooms, each with king bed, accommodating up to eight guests. 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 living and dining rooms. The kitchen features a cooking fireplace, a full range of cookware and a pantry of staples for you to help yourselves. The arrangement of bedrooms around the central courtyard means you'll have plenty of space to be together – or apart. And when you stay at Thalia, you have the whole house to yourselves, no matter how many are in your group.
Thalia is just over an hour from Hobart airport, ideally located to take advantage of all the east coast has to offer: Freycinet, Wineglass Bay, Maria Island, Douglas-Apsley and the east coast wineries are all pleasant day trips away from Thalia.
Thalia is off the beaten track: you are miles from the nearest road or neighbour. Thalia is also off the grid: your water, electricity and warmth are drawn from its land, breezes and sunshine, yet Thalia offers all the comforts your special holiday requires.
