Quirky holiday accommodation
The Freycinet Peninsula on the east coast of Tasmania is a beautiful part of the world. The rugged coastline, the rich red colour of the rocks as the ocean pounds against them, open spaces, delicious food in superb cafes and restaurants, beckons visitors from across the world and from mainland Australia (the "North Island", I was told). My family and I spent ten days driving through gorgeous areas of Tasmania, spending time in a variety of accommodation options.
One such option was a unique place at Coles Bay. We found Currawong through Stayz.com. As our trusty GPS directed us to our destination, this unusual double A-frame solid wood home stood out as we drove along the street.
We arrived at night-time and the owners had left the lights on which glowed from the large kitchen windows. Once we brought our luggage inside, we were astounded at this unique wooden interior. The kitchen is airy and has a beautiful country feel to it.
The wooden stairs "beckoned" us to inspect the next level. As we reached the top stair, we were careful to avoid the angled ceiling. It meant lowering our head slightly as we turned from the top of the staircase onto the second level. The three queen bedrooms were spacious and very warm, courtesy of the owner who turned the heaters on for our winter holiday visit. Each room has its own balcony.
