The architect designed Tent House offers light, airy and simple open plan living - with a view from every part of the house. Situated in quiet Clarence Point you can’t help but relax and enjoy the view. 40 steps out of the back gate will get you to the banks of the Tamar where you can beach-comb or fish to your hearts content. Centrally located in the Tamar Valley, wineries, lavender fields, beaches and Launceston are all within an easy drive. The house is comfortable and unique - enjoy.

The space
I have loved this area of the river since I was a boy and when the block of land came up I knew just what I wanted to build. We worked with a local architect and builder to ensure a quality build that met our needs. The river view from upstairs and down is unique and there is nothing better than being lay in bed at night to see the moonlight flood in to the space. It's a simple set up but works well. The spiral staircase is not for everyone so be mindful of that when you book. The second bathroom is situated in an outhouse that also hosts the laundry and a set of bunk beds. The 'outhouse' is directly opposite the main house.
Please note we have put additional cleaning in place in line with short stay accomodation COVID safety recommendations. In the interest of the health and safety of all my guests (and cleaning staff), I’m asking everyone to answer the following questions before they enter our property:
In the last two weeks, have you or anyone you live with traveled to any areas that have been impacted by COVID-19?
Have you been diagnosed with, or suspect that you have contracted, COVID-19?
Do you currently have any travel restrictions in your area due to COVID-19?
Do you currently feel unwell with COVID-19 symptoms?
We would ask you to refrain from entering the property if you answer yes to any of these questions. We offer a fully flexible cancellation policy and are happy to extend hospitality at a more suitable time.

Guest access
This house has been a labour of love and is only 5 years old. You will have access to the whole property as shown in the photos. I haven't taken a picture of the separate 'outhouse' which also houses the second bathroom and bunk beds if needed. The house is not overlooked at all but there is common ground down to the beach so you will see dog walkers and the odd jogger.

Other things to note
Clarence Point is a quiet area on the banks of the river Tamar. As such there are no restaurants or shops there. Groceries can be bought in Beaconsfield 11 km away - 15 minutes drive. The closest restaurants would be at Beauty Point 11km away also 15 minutes drive. Gorgeous Greens Beach is 10 minutes. There is no public transport so you need to be mobile with your own transport. So bring supplies and enjoy this wonderful serene space.

Fish and chips at Beauty Point should not be missed and the River Cafe always has great food. Greens beach is beautiful and children friendly. We struggle to get our grandchildren off the river beach where they will happily fossick for the day. Locals come from Beakie to fish at the jetty.

I grew up in Tasmania not far from this house. I am retired with my wife Elsmer and we split our time between the tent house and our home in Victoria

During your stay
If you have any issues please let us know. We have left a folder with local information but if you need anything just let us know as we have family over the road who are happy to come and help (and who put the bins out once a week and mow the lawn). We have put details of our additional cleaning measure in place in the house handbook.
