Excellent property, exceptionally clean. Good instructions for check in, even suggestions for purchasing food at the last large town if required. Baby q Weber to cook on was great. Comfortable and well stocked apartment. Nicest place we have stayed at so far. Would highly recommend!

Great location

Pros: Rooms were clean and had the equipment to prepare home cooked meals.
Location: Port Arthur was a easy drive, lots of sites to see and Tasmanian Devil park just down the road.
The Abs was positioned in a handy location close to tourist attractions where of a night time you were able to have a quiet and comfortable rest.

Excellent Unit to Stay in & convenient

Pros: Everything about the Unit is lovely, quite, beautiful & clean with friendly people who own the accommodation, who made us feel very welcome.
Cons: The only thing would be to have clean towels changed each day.
Location: Great location close to the Fox & Hounds for lunch or dinner, Port Arthur Historical Site, great walks you can take
Enjoyed our stay immensely went into Port Arthur & spent most of the day going through the ruins & visiting all the cottages etc around the grounds.
