Four hours from Hobart, four hours from Launceston, and a million miles away from your worries. This whimsical property needs no introduction to those who have followed owner Sarah Andrews’ incredible story (sailing the world, sinking her yacht, and living as a castaway in Mexico is just the beginning) but even if you’ve never heard of Captains Rest before now, you’ll soon realise story is imbibed in every touchpoint; in every moment here. On paper it’s an historically-listed waterfront cottage with its own private jetty and all the ingredients for a cosy sojourn – clawfoot bath, wood heater, antique windows – but in real life, it’s a devastating love affair.
Things we love
“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.”
~ Sarah Andrews, Captains Rest
