What a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the world. Honestly I couldn't fault the experience. The fire was set, there was delicious sourdough and butter, and coffee pods not just instant coffee. Quality all round

Thanks for your review and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Set into the hillside does allow for great views- one of our 2 bedroom cottages has been designed to be fully wheelchair accessible so this is the one to request if there are any mobility issues.

It turned out to be an expensive experience as I left behind my Peter Alexander nightshirt behind and I was told they couldn’t find it. I left if behind the bathroom door, it’s not a huge bathroom! Also the coffee mugs do not fit under the coffee machine, the bed is rock hard and the phone outside the reception doesn’t work, and the place had a musty smell when we first walked through the door.

Hi Toni Very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I hope that you did find some joy in the beautiful Far South Tasmania region. If you happen to find your missing shirt in your luggage or somewhere else (as very often happens) it would be great if you could let us know :) It definitely wasn't left behind with us. Our coffee mugs fit perfectly with the coffee machine and provide the option for multi sized coffee shots with our complimentary pods. Generally they are found to be simple to use but thank you for making us aware that more detailed instructions might be necessary for some. We have tested the reception phone to ensure that it is working correctly. It would seem that our property was just not the right fit for you- I hope that your future travels will be more fulfilling.

Stunning views of the bay, and within walking distance of several eateries, the beach, and playgrounds.
