Great location if you want to explore the southern tip of Tasmania. This is the last accommodation before the tip unless you want to get the tent out :) Room and food were excellent and hosts Carl and Ros very knowledgeable about this wonderful part of Tasmania.

Friendly hosts Carl and Ros, lovely cooked breakfast, peaceful location, comfortable bed. Museum like interesting historic items and driftwood paintings by local artist. Beach and jetty close by for those who like to fish and close to caves and forest walks. What more could you ask for?

We thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely Friday afternoon drive from Hobart to Southport, to be met with a cosy fire, a lovely meal and a very warm welcome. On Saturday we established that the best coffee around was in fact at Jetty house itself, but we enjoyed visiting the Ida Bay railway and doing a bit of fly fishing here and... More

If we ever have the opportunity to return to Tasmania, this delightful B & B will be at the top of our list. The room was so comfortable, tea was served upon arrival, breakfast was delicious and the company and hosts were warm and knowledgeable. The hosts were very attentive to our needs and happy to give us suggestions of... More

......it was the end of our Tasmanian Safari - we had two days left before we had to return to Hobart . We found ourselves in Southport , we drove past the Hotel and turned into the drive at Jetty House like we were meant to . I get the feeling that the time of the year that we arrived... More

Thanks for the lovely review. It's true that booking ahead is a good idea during peak times, but the beauty of travelling in Tassie at other times is that you can meander and discover your own gems. Carl's advice is to book your first night or two then pick up a weather map and plan out the next few days.... More

We went to Tasmania to experience the landscape , I was not expecting our accommodation to be a memorable experience in itself . The house is old and very beautiful , surrounded by lovely garden , I felt honoured to be there . The decor combines a beach and country feel with historic detail , struck a personal note with...

Our stay at the Jetty House was relaxing and we received a lot of personal attention from the lovely owners. The guesthouse is set in a stunning garden which is fun to explore, and is a good base to explore the whole South from. The breakfasts were amazing too.

This is a classic 1870's Tassie house with big verandahs and loads of character. The couple that own it (Ros and Carl) are very friendly and hospitable. The rooms are very much kept in the character of the period with superb, warm and comfortable (new) huon pine beds. There are two sitting rooms. The smaller one has a large log... More

Peaceful surrounds. Ros has the talent to know when to socialise with guests and when to give them their space - perfectly. Friendly atmosphere, great food. We both fell asleep in front if the open fire with the patter of the rain on the roof...home away from home.
