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

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.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at Holland House. Everything is very well appointed and in just the right spot. We enjoyed having direct access to the beach, the view is incredibly hard to pry yourself away from. We popped in to Binalong and St Helens and picked up some supplies (including a crayfish - visit Salty Seas; amazing restaurant quality where you would least expect it). Comfy bed, suitable supplies in the pantry and functional kitchen. Can't wait to visit again!

Truly fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

The house is superb, second only to the view which is absolutely amazing. Easy walk down to the beach which is usually deserted. The house is very well equipped and very tastefully furnished with furniture both from Europe and Tasmania. Lovely wooden floors, it was spotlessly clean, and nice little touches everywhere. Gillis, the owner, is very helpful and responsive and provides excellent support. One of the worlds best places - absolutely recommend this house.

Location!!!

  • 4 of 5

Great house at a stunning location. The only (very minor) fault with the house is the squeaky floorboards in the main bedroom (might annoy light sleepers). Other than that, this is the perfect beach house.
