Thalia Haven, Tasmania


Thalia Haven is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the crystal-blue waters of renowned Great Oyster Bay. Experience Tasmania’s wild East Coast from a unique perspective. Five kilometres of secluded coastline including 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, electricity, 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. An easy drive from Tasmania’s main airports.

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. Thalia is off the beaten track – you are 2 km from the nearest road or neighbour. Thalia is off the grid – energy is provided only by the sun and wind. Thalia offers all the comforts your special holiday requires.

Thalia offers four separate buildings sleeping up to 8 people. 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 to be apart.

The living room is stocked with games, puzzles, paints, yoga mats. And you are ideally located to take advantage of all the East Coast offers – Wineglass Bay, Freycinet, Douglas-Apsley, and Maria Island are pleasant day trips away from Thalia.

Thalia was a figure in Greek mythology. One of the three Graces, Thalia was an attendant of Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love. Thalia was also one of the nine Muses. Often called The Blooming One, Thalia is associated with the flourishing, bountiful aspects of Nature. So it is fitting that Thalia’s owners have coaxed a vibrant garden out of the rocks surrounding the house, as well as a 1,000-tree olive grove!
