'In every walk in nature, one recieves far more than he seeks ...'
Captains Rest is a haven of peace and serenity in a stunning secluded slice of world heritage area that I love most in the world.
I spend months here on end, reading in front of the fire, taking long baths, walking in the forest, swimming, fishing, dreaming, loving — and like me, you'll never want to leave.
Absolute Waterfront in a Heritage Setting ...
Captains Rest is a Historically Listed, absolute waterfront cottage in Lettes Bay Village, just outside of Strahan, Tasmania. Complete with its own jetty out the front, you're sure fall deeply in love with this place. Lettes Bay Village itself is a vibrant heritage shack community — bustling in summer, serene in winter, we love our stay in both seasons equally.
Bespoke & Beautiful ...
Captains Rest has been designed, renovated and decorated with love with objects and furnishings from around Australia and the world. From our main living area, the clawfoot bath and the bedroom you can look out the huge antique windows to views of the bay, the pristine mountains and the ever changing sky.
This place is brimming with curated collections, fine linens, cozy textures and objects of delight! Captains Rest is our own personal getaway, so no detail has been spared.
In terms of practicalities, we have a full kitchen, satellite wifi, TV, picnic amenities, cozy wood heater, electric blanket, wall heater, basic provisions and firewood. There is also plenty of room for parking, including those towing a boat or caravan.
