Overview

About the property

For more pics please look us up on Instagram: Holland House Bay of Fires

Holland House is a comfortable, luxurious and honest beach house. A place to relax, read, listen to music.

And of course, to look at the sea. When was the last time you really noticed the world around you? You'll be inspired. The open plan living areas allow for million dollar views to the "Bay of Fires".

Just imagine yourself lazily on the large pillows. Doing nothing, simply feel and be mindful.

It's about simple life in a beautiful place. You'll see that beauty is everywhere.

Holland House is elevated above the land on slender steel columns as though it could be plucked from the site leaving no evidence of its existence. With respect to nature at this location: rugged terrain and beautiful climate.

Rainwater is collected and kept in a tank and reused. The slow combustion heater in the living area heats the whole house. And the floors and decks are all of recycled eucalyptus wandoo wood, which came from a Western Australian shearing shed.

Holland House consists of two bedrooms upstairs with each a queen-sized hotel quality bed. A third small bedroom has a single bed of the same quality as our queen beds.

Your bed is comfortably made before your arrival. Linen is all white and very crisp.

The view from the master bedroom ocean side is breathtaking. If you like getting up early open your blinds and watch the sun rise. Welcome the start of each new day.

Our bathroom with double sinks and double shower with Vola fittings is upstairs as well as your Happy Cupboard with your bath towels and your beach towels. Shampoo, body wash and hand wash are upmarket brands e.g. Rituals.

Dining area is downstairs with the well equipped kitchen. The pantry is stocked with dry goods for your convenience. The expansive living area opens out to the decks. A second toilet is on the ground floor.

The Baby Weber BBQ is set up on the roadside deck. Luckily it has a lid so no possum can steal your food!

Award winning from the RAIA (Royal Australian Institute of Architects) in 2007 and various publications on Holland House

RAIA judges: "The assured rationalist form is in clear and deliberate contrast with the surrounding raw landscape, underscoring the definition between the natural and the built".

"Simply stunning, stunningly simple",

Alison Ribbon in the Sunday Tasmanian July 15, 2007

"The house celebrates the form of a shipping container, a nodding reference to the many nautical miles that separate the Dutch owners from their homeland".

Jenna Reed Burns in Houses, issue 53

""Beach Shack" situated in lush native bushland on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, a testament to environmentally conscious, coastal living".

Australia's Best Beach Houses, edited by Gary Takle, 2010

"The European functionalism (of the beach house)- its warm, clean interiors and simple, unadorned style- has been infused with several gestures towards vernacular Australian architecture".

Specifier magazine, issue 78

"The kitchen makes me want to start cooking, the acres of stainless steel bench too just begging to be used".

Jeffrey Booth, Slow Magazine, June 2012

About Cornelis van Weperen

Hi!

We're Kees and Gillis, owners of Holland House. We are Dutch and we live overseas in The Netherlands. Our property is managed by Matt who lives nearby Holland House in Binalong Bay.

Cornelis van Weperen purchased this house in 2000

Why Cornelis van Weperen chose Ansons Bay

We came to the area as tourists with our local Tassie friends and we fell in love with The Gardens.

We decided to try to purchase a block of land right on Taylor's Beach and we succeeded! We've had our Holland House built in the years after and our place was completed in 2004.

Holland House is our baby, we just love our home and the location. It's really breathtakingly beautiful where we are! Every time we arrive we are stunned!

What makes this house unique

The uniqueness of the place is the location. We're situated right on the beach (you walk through our garden onto the beach) which is unique in this world. Also our home is very comfortable so that when we travel that far from overseas we come home at our Holland House.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Holland House for four nights. The house is beautifully appointed with everything you need for a very comfortable stay.

It is the best view ever of one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see.

Look forward to returning sooner than later.

BRILLIANT STAY

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and comfortable home that ticked all our boxes. This property is stylish with plenty of comforts. As well, the location is to die for! We had the pristine beach to ourselves the entire stay and enjoyed losing ourselves with long walks.

Excellent positioned property overlooking the bay

  • 4 of 5

Waking up to the sound of waves, as the sun begins to rise, with hawks flying over in search of prey,,,

Nature at its best ...

Lovely cosy home,

Thank you Gillis for your quick responses to my emails, and access to your pantry which created a caring, sharing, giving & exchanging sentiment.

Yes the floorboards were squeaking in the main bedroom ... And it was a bit challenging, with 5 Adults & 1 bathroom ..

But didn't hone in on the small stuff, just opened my eyes, felt the ocean breeze , and breathed in the magnificence of what was staring right back at me...

Spectacular location for a beach house!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our three day visit. The house is welcoming, very well set up and comfortable with a wonderful view up and down the beautiful coast. As two couples, we were disappointed to find only one bathroom and a second toilet (not two bathrooms as noted) and found the squeaky floorboards an issue - particularly at night. Overall though, an enjoyable stay with lots to do in the surrounding area.

Spectacular Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had two amazing weeks at this very special beach house. Waking up to views over Taylor's Beach and Binalong Bay beyond each day were glorious. The photos do not do the property justice.

The house was very well equipped, with every possible convenience. Beautiful kitchen and bathroom and the most spectacular deck, with those views!

The property owner and manager were fantastic to deal with and we can not recommend the property more highly.
