Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one night at this property and wished we could have stayed longer. Bright clean house. Really comfortable. Jan was super helpful and even offered to put up baby safety gates for our little ones. Gorgeous view from the house of Binalong Bay- convenient walking distance to the beach, which the kids (and ourselves) loved. Lichen restaurant nearby (suggested by Jan) had the most delicious pizza and fish! Thank you for the wonderful stay

Super property, superb location!!

  • 5 of 5

Superb property, superb location

Spacious house with beautiful wooden polished floors which greet you the moment you open the front door!!! Absolutely magnificent quality floors; white spotless linen; functional washing machine; bedrooms and bathroom/toilet are on the ground floor and kitchen and huge living room are on the top floor - the reason is the ocean views from the top floors which are superb!!! Quality house with open driveway and the lawn full of wallabies in the evening...but they are shy :) Located all 5 minutes walking distance to the beach; we checked out all little beaches along the Gardens Rd north of Binalong Bay; I can confidently vote Binalong beach as my favourite around there to swim (we do not surf) - deep water, no shallow surf, protected by its natural headland from rolling surf waves, crystal clear water - no weeds in the water; sand is the best white crisp silicon that makes squeaky sound when walked on ...simply the best.

Great Lichen restaurant in the village - recommended by Jan and proved to be the best and freshest fish and chips at lunch and pizza in the evening .... Shopping for food in St Helen' IGA was over the top expensive - e.g. tomatoes over $7 per kg vs Launcestons' $3.50...we did not mind as we only stayed 3 days and eat fair bit out too ... but would consider coming prepared from Launceston next time around. My husband did Bay of Fires Eco Tours boat cruise while i babysit our 2 year old and he said it was awesome to see seals and coastline but can be choppy and rough... We travelled a lot in Aus incl Tasmania, but Bay of Fires and Binalong Bay have certainly made it on a list of places we would love to come again and if we did Bay of Fires Beach Shack would be the choice for us to stay ...personally I would have loved to stay put in this place for over a week - everything just works there - perfect house, perfect beach, day trips , ocean coastline of immense beauty, food....Highly recommended!!!

Owner's Response: How wonderful to hear that you had such a super time whilst at Binalong Bay, and the Beach Shack. The wallabies are gorgeous, but yes, you need to be very quiet. They come in from the bush behind the house so are not used to interacting with people. Coming prepared for a week stay is a great idea, or going to the market on Saturday in St Helens is a great place for fruit and veg. Hope you come back soon and stay longer next time
