Whatever you need or if you just need a rest, Frogmouth Cottage is the best medicine on your script but beware of the side effects: it's addictive, you won't want to leave and you will want to come back.

Connect with mother nature and the people you care about. You will feel serenity of coming home. You will feel peaceful bliss.

Hold hands, go for a walk on the wide safe beach, with white clean sand and 40 min. return brisk walk. Feel the sand under your feet, the cool water around your ankles, fresh breeze in your hair, intoxicating pure oxygen in your lungs. Feel detoxing of your body and mind. Feel, reinvigoration, inspiration, exhilaration, fly your imagination.

Smell the sea, taste the salt, hear the surf and the sea gulls. Take in the view, build sand castles, find shells or play ball games. Go safe swimming in the pristine waters of Primrose Sands or go kayaking. Go fishing with your boat and moor it in front or just throw the line in at dusk and catch your dinner right in front of the house. Where in the world can you do that?. Truly a feast for all your senses.

If you are lucky you may get surprise visitors. A pod of Dolphins sometimes comes and plays in front of the house. Where in the world can you kayak with Dolphins?

Eat your freshly barbecue grilled fish with some of the best produce in the world. Then watch the spectacular sunset, your favourite show on the big screen TV or just enjoy good company, drink some wine, relax and go to sleep lulled by sound of the waves. 

Wake up refreshed to the most amazing brilliant daybreak, to the sounds of birds, thunder of surf, nerves relaxed, body rested, soul reborn and ready for another day of adventure or just reading a book in a recliner, reminiscing or doing nothing, as you please.

If waking up early is too much, then sleep in and be awaken by the smell of freshly ground coffee coming from the coffee machine in the kitchen where someone is making breakfast for you. How about waking up to the ocean view from your bed?, the water is so close you can almost touch it.

The perfect choice is yours, do as much or as little as you like.

We have created perfect convergence of the: stunning location, convenience, comfort, activities and value. You be the judge.

Idyllic three bedroom house is beautifully renovated and has panoramic windows and open plan layout with a modern kitchen. You will see the beach just in front of you (and your kids playing or exploring rock pools) from the lounge and two bedrooms.  Newly furnished and beautifully appointed. 

Comfort is the order of the day and the new furniture with recliners and quality bedding has been specially selected for maximum comfort. Did we mention throw rugs, doonas, soft pillows, electric blankets and hot water bottle?

There are three recliners in the lounge so you can just lay back and enjoy the view. 
Three queen beds (two with ocean view) plus a pull out sofa in the lounge. You can comfortably sleep six people in three bedrooms and two visitors in the lounge.

There is reverse cycle air conditioning or a wood fire heater for perfect ambience. 

There is no such thing as a bad day at Frogmouth Cottage, even if the weather is bad and uninviting, you will be cosseted in comfort, looking out enthralled, just glad you are here.

The house is set on nearly 3000m2 of private bushland with 90 metres of beach frontage with private secluded garden and outdoor entertaining area at the rear.  There is plenty of space for the kids to run around. 

Wildlife is abundant: fish and the dolphins, occasional sighting of whales, birds, echidnas, lizards (resident blue tongue lizard "Cherry" who was caught on video taking a swim on the beach) visiting gander,occasional kangaroo and wallaby, swans and much more.

It is away far enough from other houses for privacy and yet close enough not to be isolated. Tucked at the end of the beach against hill the house is protected from the worst of the prevailing winds. 

The property, right next to the old boat ramp is very easy to find and easy to get to with excellent and convenient access. There is plenty of parking (even if you are towing a boat or caravan) and for the visitors.

Local servo/convenience/takeaway store is less than 5 minutes  and local RSL serves drinks, lunch and dinner. Sorell is 20 minutes away with supermarkets, Mc Donalds, KFC, and many other shops and restaurants. Dunelly is not far with a large pub and many interesting local shops.

You can be at the Hobart International Airport in 30 minutes and in Hobart in 45 minutes, with all the amazing conveniences of a capital city and the incomparable atmosphere of Salamanca Market on Saturdays.

Primrose Sands is a magnificent place but it's also a town and it's the people that make it wonderful. The locals are friendly and always ready for a chat, whether you bump into them on the beach or in the shop and always ready to lend a hand if need be. It's the laid back style that reminds me how mainland Australia was 45 years ago.

If you are exploring Tasmania, you are within striking distance of historic sites( Port Arthur, Richmond and Maria Island, amazing beaches ( 11 in the municipality of Sorell alone), national parks and local attractions. Frogmouth Cottage is an excellent base for day tripping, you won't run out of things to see or do.

If you have come to the greatest theatre of all, God's creation that is Tasmania, Frogmouth Cottage is the front row seat like no other.

"Gem on the beach" A superb ‘get away from the world’ for Frogmouth Cottage. The breezes, flowers, and chirping birds...and of course, the clean bay waters are so welcome as one tries to depart from the urban hustle. Other than some of the windows need to be repaired (to open)....strongly recommend this Cottage. Will come back all the way from Texas.



"Perfect place on the beach" The cottage totally lives up to previous reviews. Really convenient to get to but feels like a retreat once you are there. Appliances are all really good especially oven and hob. Fire is really easy to use and just a totally great place to stay. Location ideal for the Tasman peninsula etc. A very relaxing stay.

Brilliant accommodation. Spacious, quiet & very relaxing!! Woke up one morning to dolphins!!!! High Recommend!!!! Thanks so much to Branko & Ivanka for making our stay so pleasant. Look forward to returning again soon.



This is the best place to stay in Tasmania. Everything is spotless and well thought-out. Guests want for nothing. And the views and location are superb. Do yourself a favour and don't miss this one on your next trip to Tasmania. It''s worth every cent and more. It should win an award from Tourism Tasmania. Ideal for couples or families, as children are well catered for with books and DVDs and a 55 inch TV. There are plenty of towels, both bath and beach, the beds are comfortable and the huge wood-burning fire is state of the art, not to mention the alternative electric heating. Just perfect!



We were lucky enough to book and stay last weekend and had a simply superb time! We arrived at Tassie for a "girls weekend" and were so thankful that we had found Frogmouth Cottage. It is so quiet and peaceful with so much to do & everything you could ever need (including kayaks!)...It really is a very special spot! I must also thank Branko and Ivanka for their hospitality (and directions). You made us feel very, very special.
