For three restful nights we stayed at Harpers on the Beach in a beautifully appointed, spacious beach cottage not more than 30 metres to a low sand dune which, standing on it, opened out to a magnificent mouth watering view of the beach and beautiful bay looking across to Bruny Island in the distance. Our host Jill was very welcoming,... More

Stayed here for two nights recently and can highly recommend Harpers on the Beach. Jill is a great host, extremely helpful and has a lot of knowledge about the Tasman Peninsula. The bed was super comfortable and it was nice dropping off to sleep with the sound of the waves on the beach. Good breakfast. It's about a 10 minute... More

We spent a lovely two nights at the guesthouse, especially enjoying the chance to share breakfast and also the dinner we had with other guests. The short stroll over the sand dune to the beach leads to a beautiful vista over the bay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We much enjoyed our stay - many thanks!!!

Our time here was fantastic, certainly one of the highlights of our stay. The beach unit was well appointed, with a great lounge, dining area and comfortable and spacious rooms. Jill was a fantastic host and her home cooked breakfast delicious. A great experience.

We stayed here 2 nights and found the place to be clean and comfortable. One oddity is there is no closet, just 3 hooks on the wall in our room #2. The location on the beach is stunning. We could walk for miles on the lovely beach, reached in about 20 steps from our front porch. Jill makes a good... More

Day 1 everything went smoothly with good welcome and support for late dinner. The room is beautiful with a properly sized bed. Unfortunately for unknown reasons on day 2 our room was not made up and hence on day 3 we ran out of toilet paper. Breakfast was served on a single table, forcing us to have conversations with other... More

Thank you for your review and I am glad that overall your stay was a good one. I am sorry for the oversight in not servicing your room on the second day and am not sure why this was missed. If you had asked at any point we could have replenished supplies that had been missed rather than you going... More

What a beautiful peaceful setting with the beach only foot steps away. It was so nice we ended up not going out for tea, but rather sitting at the small table and enjoyed the sun setting over the water. Lovely hosts and a very tasty big breakfast.

Harpers on the Beach is great. Jill helped us find dinner after we arrived late. She also cooks and serves an excellent breakfast. We will certainly heading back to Harpers on the Beach. The views are amazing and the area is very peaceful
