Sandpiper Ocean Cottages are perfectly located just north of Bicheno on the East Coast of Tasmania. Set on 4 acres of natural coastal gardens, each cottage is private and spacious.
A short stroll through the dunes and you can walk barefoot for miles on pristine white sand, fish from the beach or swim safely. The only sounds you'll hear are the waves, the birds and the squeak of the sand as you walk.
The three 2 bedroom cottages sleep 5 people comfortably and have full laundry and kitchen facilities. They are spacious and modern inside, with large sunny verandas. A cosy log fire and the sounds of the sea make for restful nights.
Our newest cottage, Hanalei, is wheelchair friendly. It’s also 2 bedroom, sleeping 5 people. It features a walk in shower, no steps, extra wide doors and all the mod cons.
Ocean View, is just next to Sandpiper Cottage and is also fully self contained with 1 bedroom. This one is quite private and is just for couples - with a king bed, modern furnishings and a view of the ocean.
For those wanting a bit more space & privacy, we also have The Beach House. A stunning 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with beautiful ocean views on 40 acres with its own beach access. It sleeps up to 8 people.
We’re close to the Bicheno Golf Club and Douglas Apsley National Park and half an hour away from Freycinet National Park and the iconic Wineglass Bay. The Bay of Fires is only an hour to the north. And being a fishing village, we have some of the best seafood on offer here in Bicheno.
Sandpiper Ocean Cottages is the perfect place to relax, unwind and be inspired.
