We are happy to accept last minute and one night bookings. Longer stays are also welcome. Over the summer holiday period (late December/January) we only take a minimum of 4 night bookings, if there are spaces in-between we're happy to fill those. The house is well equipped, sunny and peaceful. Enjoy a heated, very clean house with a stunning view. A great base to explore the East Coast or to stay and enjoy what the area offers.
The property is secluded by native trees with an uninterrupted outlook to Scamander River lagoon and further across the dunes to the magnificent ocean. Max's is peaceful and quiet making it the perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate the spirit. It's just a short - 5 to 10 min (for me it's 5) - walk around the lagoon to the magnificent beach.
Max's is a great base to explore the East Coast and all it has to offer. The property is close to beaches, surf, restaurants, shops, pub, post office, golf, fishing, park, skate park, Scamander River and the boat launch.
Max's is a two bedroom two bathroom house. We can accomodate up to 6 people comfortably, with one double bed (with electric blanket) and two bunk beds (bottom bunks can easily be pushed together) in a large room with an electric heater. All linen is provided (except beach towels).
The kitchen is fully equipped with some pantry items provided.
You'll be happy to know that Scamander tap water is drinkable.
The beach house is a very comfortable and well equipped property on a level block with plenty of room to park your cars and boat. It is exceptionally clean & well maintained with a new heat pump that can easily heat the entire house. Enjoy the movies, books, Fuss Ball Table & games provided.

If you want to "get away from it all" for a few days then Max's is the place for you. We cherish those moments of peaceful relaxation and you can do just that at Max's. Max's is an extremely comfortable holiday house for those wishing to visit the East Coast of Tasmania. Whether you want to kick back with friends and family, go surfing at the many local surf breaks or catch a few fish in the beautiful Scamander or from the beach you will find Max's the ideal place.
Watching the black swans glide by on the lagoon at the back of Max's as the moon rises over the ocean makes the perfect setting for a real break. If you're lucky to come at the right time of year you may be able to catch a few king prawns in the lagoon - but don't tell too many this!
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. If you have any questions or would like some local advice please don't hesitate to ask.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Happy & Safe Travels!
Nell, Kim, Floyd & Beau
