If you like warm and cosy with a little bit of quirky on the side, then look no further. You have just found your ideal holiday shack. Mermaids is the quintessential Tassie shack. So homely and sunny, with all amenities supplied so you can have a carefree getaway. Within minutes on foot to the beach and walking tracks, it is ideally positioned. Views abound and reverse-cycle air conditioning ensures all year comfort. Free Wifi is a bonus.
The master bedroom has a claw-foot bath and the second bedroom has another Queen bed and two singles. You can enjoy the ocean views from inside or from the sheltered deck. This gorgeous beach house is easy to find and just a short walk to the centre of Bicheno.
A highlight of Mermaids is its close proximity to Redbill Beach, one of Tasmania's best surf beaches and also home to many fairy penguins. Access to the southern end of Redbill Beach is from the bottom of the street, just a couple of minute's walk from Mermaids. The picturesque Bicheno walking track also starts from here and your hosts will provide you with a map so that you can find your way on foot to the Blow Hole, the Gulch and the bakery. Bicheno boasts lovely coastal vistas and many hidden beaches that are sheltered and ideal for snorkling, kayaking and exploring rock pools. In the cooler months Bicheno is the perfect place from which to view dolphins and mermaids, hunt for pretty shells or enjoy a thermos of tea with a good book.
