About Ornella (Nell) Imber
Kim and I love this part of Tasmania and the lifestyle that it offers. We have two terrific sons aged 20 (uni) and 17 (yr 11). Surfing as a family is one of our favourite things to do. We all contribute to the running, cleaning and maintaining of our beach house. We know that there’s room for improvement but we hope you can feel the love that goes into the house. I work part time at the local school in St Helens and Kim is a retired teacher (I think), he’s having a year off, who knows what the future holds. I keep telling him that I’m too young for my husband to be retired. Music is a big part of our lives, Kim is a singer/songwriter and is eager to perform more this year. Our boys love their music and play bass guitar in various bands. I am an artist and have been painting for most of my life. The artworks on the walls at Max's are my works from various time periods. We all enjoy healthy, fresh, delicious food. We are fortunate that Kim is a keen gardener and keeps us well fed with his garden goodies and locally caught seafood. Max was Kim's Dad, he was my first friend when I moved to Tasmania 20 years ago. He had the house built in the 70's and Kim holidayed here as a boy. We miss Max, he was one of the most mindful people I've ever met. As guests we are a tidy, respectful family and are mindful of the energy that is involved in running and cleaning a holiday rental. Happy & Safe Travels! Nell, Kim, Floyd & Beau

Why Ornella (Nell) Imber chose Scamander

What makes this House unique
Max's Beach House is full of love, with a relaxed beach style vibe. The property is secluded by native trees with an uninterrupted outlook to Scamander River lagoon and further across the dunes to the magnificent ocean.

Clean, quiet and kid-friendly
A great little holiday house close to a beautiful beach and not too far from Hobart. Well maintained and appointed. Obviously a labour of love for Nell and her family. Highly recommended!
Thanks Timm, you were a pleasure to host. We'd be happy to have you stay again
The property is basic but very nice, clean and the heater warmed it well even though we visited in the depths of a cold Tassie winter. The location is excellent; 30 minutes to Bay of Fires and the Pyenganah (sp?) Valley, 1 hour to Wineglass Bay and the price seemed very competitive. Nell was prompt and very helpful to deal with and the check in process was very smooth. Highly recommend for a small family or group on a budget and looking for convenient base from which to explore the East Coast.
Excellent service. Clean. Great spot
It was perfect

Thanks Trevor, fabulous to know you enjoyed your stay at the beach house!
Clean, spacious and stylish home right on the beach!
Loved Max's Beach House! Loved that it was spacious, clean, and beautifully located. It was great to have a less formal living area for the kids equipped with tv, dvd, books and toys, as well as a more formal living area for us adults. The house was equipped with all possible amenities which were much appreciated. Loved our stay!
Thanks so much Suzanne, great to know you loved your stay at our beach house! You're welcome back any time!
