Sawyers Bay Shacks are a modern interpretation of of the iconic Tassie beach shack....simple but stylish accommodation right on the Flinders Island beachfront surrounded by acres of farmland. Energy efficient with solar and wood fire heating, large open plan living area with decks on three sides and views across Bass Strait to Mount Strzlecki and the outer islands. For couples and small families we have the two bedroom shack and a larger three bedroom shack for bigger families or groups.
We are located about 10 minutes drive from the airport and 15 minutes from the main town, Whitemark. So while the shacks are isolated on rural land on a safe calm water beach with no public access you are close enough to get the newspapers or go out for a meal. Being centrally located on the West coast we are within 40 minutes drive of anywhere on the island. There are no on site managers at Sawyers Bay Shacks so you can enjoy your holiday in absolute solitude!
The big shack is great for big family holidays while the small shack is the perfect cosy retreat for couples. Both shacks have a well fitted out kitchen, dishwasher, ipod dock and double sided fireplace onto the deck. To assist you to totally unwind we have chosen not to have televisions in the shacks (a bit of a shock for urban kids but you will find they discover the outdoors can be much more entertaining). We have plenty of board games and a small library of books including various reference books on walking tours, tasmanian aboriginal history, early explorers flora and fauna. Please let us know if you have any particular interests.
Oh.... and our beach was recently named the top secret beach in Australia (see media links page).
