Looking for quiet, relaxing colonial ambience?
  • Sanda in late winter
  • Nearby Spring Beach
  • Early summer roses
  • Front garden
  • Dining room

Sanda House is a delightful, heritage listed, stone house, set in cottage gardens and with a friendly dog. Only ten minutes walk to long, often empty, beaches. A cliff walk to Spring Beach, looking out to Maria Island, is well worth doing. If you are looking for somewhere that still looks and feels like 1840 with a whimsical, soothing ambience, a garden and orchard to walk around, (picking a piece of fruit, in season, as you go) with no traffic noise, comfy chairs on the verandah, ten mins walk to cafes, river and beach? Then, you've found it!

Known locally as the old Post Office (1876-1940) it is nestled in an acre of cottage garden, chooks, orchard and vege patch.  The house is built from local field and sandstone - very romantic and private, especially the Rose room.

Four bedrooms (Rose, Jasmine, Mulberry & Wisteria) have been set aside for guests, each furnished with our collection of antiques, with all the comforts, but the original colonial look and feel.

All rooms have heating, tea/coffee, reading lights, TV, own bathrooms and (due to the stone walls) are quiet. The guest lounge has reading matter, local history, music and board games. Breakfast, in the dining room in front of the fire, includes our own bread, jams and fruit, plus cereal, yoghurt, filter coffee.

Orfords Sanda House Bed and Breakfast is proud to be shortlisted in the 2010 TakeABreak Awards. Check out Sanda House on takeabreak.com.au.
