Everyone needs a bolthole: somewhere to escape, somewhere to hide.
A luxury seaside house should have a great coffee machine. And a track to the beach. It should offer room for ten friends. Or a quiet retreat for a couple. It should be a sanctuary. And a base to explore. It should bring unexpected pleasures. A quick ocean dip before breakfast. A pod of dolphins. A curious seal. A whale circling the bay. The rock island home for seabirds. The small surprises hidden in rockpools.
A wave off Eagle Reef. A wild storm rolling in from the south. A shimmering summer’s day. A night beneath stars so bright you can almost hear them chime. A chance to catch your breath.
At the far end of Pirates Bay is a secluded property designed for those who want to step out of the usual and into the beauty of Tasman Peninsula. Surrounded by tall eucalypts, the view stretches across the water and along the wild coast. On foot, a short track leads to the beach. Turn right, and walk for hours along the famed Tessalated Pavement rock platforms, a protected swimming cove and along of Tasmania’s favourite surf beaches. Turn left and enjoy the solitude of high cliffs and the wild southern ocean. Stay a day, stay a week and barely see a soul. Watch a Southern Right Whale from a steamy bath, or enjoy a drink on the deck and marvel at the light.
