We stayed in the family cottage which was really comfortable and had a full kitchen and stove/oven. The beds were comfy and the heater kept the place warm. Its a short drive to Port Arthur and other walks which... More

Stayed one night. Very comfortable and spacious 2 bedroom unit with a bathroom and kitchen with everything we needed. Heating was adequate. Even had chopsticks along with other cutlery -- first time I've seen it in any tourist accommodation in Australia! Reasonable price. A convenient place to stay when visiting the sights of the Tasman Peninsula, but there's hardly anything... More

We stayed one night on our way to the Tasmanian Devils Conservatory Park, which is located 2 kilometers away, it was really convenient. The location is pretty and quiet, the cottage was very well appointed, very clean and overall charming.

These cottages are in a beautiful setting. The mountains are are on one side and the water across the road. I stayed in one of the studio units. It was clean and comfortable. Werner was a delightful host. It also was very reasonable and close to many attractions.
