St Helens, Tasmania
The first time offered for sale since redeveloped in 2015, this waterfront property boasts 9 accommodation villas as sits on 86.9 acres of fertile pastures that are home to ducks, wallabies, wombats, kookaburras, native wildlife and abundant birdlife - plus there is a platypus that drops in to say hi every now and again.
Private wetland walks, bird watching havens and direct access to the waterfront are just three of the exclusive features on offer at 170 Binalong Bay Road, St Helens.
Offering a total of up to 9 accommodation options, the Sanctuary has an exceptional reputation and is in it's prime for further promotion. Currently operating 10 months of the year, and with only 7 accommodation options offered (not the full 9), the property still returns an impressive gross yield of 6% with 8.5% gross yield expected if run at capacity year round. Without any promotion, aside from their exceptional reputation & booking channel, Pelican Point Sanctuary exceeds the average occupancy rate for the area and the potential is untapped for you to take the business to it's full potential with a smart marketing plan and social media strategy.
The groundwork for this business to take off is all done - with quality construction, exceptional presentation and glowing recommendations.
Construction of Pelican Point Sanctuary was completed in 2015, with the Californian bungalows commencing in 1992. Each villa boasts envogue kitchens and bathrooms with impeccable bedding and flooring choices. Modern decor enhances the guest experience in addition to the water and rural view that abound from each villa.
Currently managed as short term accommodation, each villa has been thoughtfully designed to be enjoyed as a permanent home if required. The sweeping verandahs and floor to ceiling windows allow you to soak in the lush waterfront acres.
Just two minutes from the centre of St Helens, Pelican Point Sanctuary is very close to all restaurants, including Australia's Best Regional Restaurant of 2020 - Furneaux. In addition, Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires are just 8 minutes from the property and offer incredible access to the world famous pristine beaches. With fishing and mountain bike tourism continuing to grow, Pelican Point Sanctuary is an ideal location in the heart of the bay and bush.
Entirely private from passing traffic, the Sanctuary is exactly that, a sanctuary. Nothing has been overlooked to ensure guests enjoy a superior stay with nothing but the sounds of nature.
The purchase of this property is a vast opportunity to enter the booming Tasmanian tourism market. The property is well established and holds an exceptional reputation and is being sold walk in, walk out.
Although currently operated as a tourism business, subject to council approval, the option to be offered as exclusive retirement living and long term accommodation is certainly an option to consider.
With a designated guest reception building, games room, guest laundry, barbeque area as well quality roading, spectacular gardens, ponds, dams and large machinery shed - there is everything here to continue to operate a very successful business.
I would be delighted to show you through this property so please be in touch personally by phone or email to arrange a suitable time. In the meantime, please view the video walk through.
