Shearwater Cottages

Shearwater - North

Just perfect for golf lovers, as the club is right next door. The cottages give you a comfortable stay, ideal for those doing their own catering, and would suit anyone looking for a beach holiday and those travelling with young children. Rail buffs have a nearby treat in store too.

Shearwater Cottages range from those that can sleep four to a family holiday home that can sleep up to ten. There are king or queen beds, as well as twins and bunks, and all properties additionally feature sofa beds and in-room patios. You have a fridge, a microwave oven and the equipment for making tea and coffee, along with a flat-screen television, a DVD player and a hair dryer. There are complimentary toiletries in the bathroom, and you can make use of an iron and ironing board, down comforters, a telephone and a desk. There is a housekeeping service once a week.

You will find the living area has modern, comfortable furniture such as a sofa and armchairs, and you can make use of barbecue equipment as well as a picnic area and garden. Wireless internet is free, as is the parking, and the owners have even included a portable fan for your comfort.

Shearwater Cottages are close to the coast and so they are a good choice whether you prefer swimming or sunbathing. Visitors to the area with young children in tow will definitely find the nearby Pantana Paddling Pool and Family Park, just a few minutes away by car, a must-visit attraction. The pretty Aubrey Luck Reserve can be reached in about twenty minutes on foot, as can Port Sorell Jetty, and if you are a rail enthusiast, the nearest heritage line is the Don River Railway. One note of caution when planning a trip: don’t confuse these Shearwater Cottages with their namesake in the state of Victoria, as you might find the expected local attractions to be quite different.

This vacation home is situated by the ocean.

Guests at this beach vacation home will appreciate convenient onsite amenities such as barbecue grills and a picnic area.

All 7 homes have flat-screen TVs with digital channels and feature kitchenettes with refrigerators, stovetops, and microwaves. Other amenities available to guests include washers/dryers, free WiFi, and furnished patios. Weekly housekeeping is available.

Lovely place to stay. I have stayed at this establishment many times over the years for work. I find the rooms and facilities exceptionally clean and well presented. The whole setting is very tranquil and I enjoy using the outdoor bbq facility and the beautiful garden setting.

Love the place. Didn't want to leave. Great view from outside the back. Comfortable, clean and being able to use Shearwater pool was a bonus - the kids loved it. Can't say enough about shearwater cottages. We had the Shearwater Cottage house, great for large family. Thank you Shearwater for making my trip perfect.
