Dramatic, elemental, wild – set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the crystal-blue waters of renowned Great Oyster Bay, Thalia Haven is a self-contained house where you can experience our wild East Coast from a unique perspective. Five kilometres of secluded coastline include your own exclusive golden sand beach. Accommodation is in four ancient stone bedrooms clustered around olive tree courtyards on the ocean’s edge. The residence is a bold yet congenial showcase of self-reliance: your water, power and warmth are drawn from its land, breezes, and sunshine. Rustic, yes, but fear not: all the comforts you will need to relax, enjoy, and explore are at hand. Secluded and restorative – awake to the sound of the sea, as rays from the rising sun play on the granite Hazards of Freycinet. Rock-hop to wander on your private 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. Be spellbound by the moon rising over the Bay. Prepare a gourmet extravaganza in your professionally equipped kitchen. Relax by a roaring fire. 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 apart. The living room is stocked with games, puzzles, books, and yoga mats. You are ideally located to take advantage of all the East Coast offers: Wineglass Bay, Freycinet, Douglas-Apsley, and Maria Island are all pleasant day trips from Thalia. And your well-behaved dog is welcome with our compliments.
