Beautiful house, comfortable, welcoming room and atmosphere, seconds away from a breathtaking beach, Jill was the perfect host. Delicious breakfast in the morning! Thank you very much, We'd stay again if we're ever in that part of the world.

We recently spent a night at Harpers on the Beach and really would recommend it as a convenient and very comfortable stop after a day at (the wonderful) Port Arthur. Jill is an excellent host. Our room was large and elegantly furnished and decorated. Great warm shower and steps from the aptly named White Beach. We opted for Jill's set... More

Harpers on the Beach is a delightful place to stay, on every count. There is no way in which it is lacking. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and afford breathtaking views. The proprietors are welcoming, warm, considerate and discrete. If you're lucky enough to catch them on a night when they are serving dinner, there... More

Harpers on the Beach is just at the right spot, not too far from Port Arthur and directly at the beach. Very comfortable room with all the little extras one needs and a delicious breakfast in the morning.

A very happy experience from beginning to end. We felt very welcome on arrival then took a stroll on the beach at the end of the garden. Pre-booking an evening meal at the property proved to be a good move - the 3 course meal offered by Jill was delicious. The property is well maintained and our hosts clearly pay... More

We stayed here for one night only and were pleasantly surprised by how lovely it was. Bed was luxuriously comfortable, it was very clean and a beautifully cooked breakfast on the morning topped it off. I would recommend this b & b.

After being welcomed so very nicely, it was up to us to make the most of what was on offer. The boys chose to sun themselves on the balcony whilst the girls walked the almost... More
