Absolutely ripped off! This so called cottage is nowhere near the beach and is an old brick unit, it is at least 300 mtrs from the beach behind a smelly sheep paddock, nothing like the advertisement! I spoke with the owner & he told me that was the one I had booked??? Rubbish! Be careful which absolute beach front "Cottage"... More

The only photos displayed were of the lovely cottages right ON the beach. What we got however was approximately 2km from the advertised ones which were a few hundred meters from the beach behind a stinky sheep paddock and old! Unless penguins walk up past the sheep paddock you have no chance of seeing them as one is lead to... More

We were a little disappointed with the Penguin Nook. On the up side, the location is good, close to town and the foreshore footway. It is close to the penguins. At times you can hear the neighbours but the place does feel quite private given that it is conjoined. Beds were good. It has quite a good little kitchen although... More

The name might look confusing, but there are in fact 3 properties on the Anchlia site, with Anchlia House being separate and indeed a 'house', obviously very recently refurbished top to bottom and offering a very large kitchen and family room with adjacent, generous bedroom, and huge 'master' bedroom upstairs with its own balcony, large en suite, copious storage etc...

We stayed at Cod Rock terrace, a lovely two storey 2 bedroom apartment which is attached to the one storey-one bedroom Penguin Nook, for two nights. Our unit was very comfortable with the living-dining and kitchen on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the upper floor. The apartment was nicely furnished and the kitchen well-equipped. BBQ was also available... More

Hi, We stayed at Anchlia Waterfront Cottage for a couple of nights last week. The area and cottage is quite beautiful and well appointed but there were a few issues with the booking and our stay there. The first problem we encountered is the email confirmation we received from the owners, being about six pages of helpful information, did not... More

We recently stayed in the 1br Penguins Nook for 3 nights & it was everything & so much more than we expected. I was tempted not tell anyone about it in the hope that it will always be available for our stays. Trip Advisor was what convinced me to book it & I can honestly say that we did not... More

What a find! We stayed 2 nights in Cod Rock Terrace. As a family of 4 with 2 small children, the accommodation was spacious and charming. Wonderful location with our own deck for afternoon drinks and bbq. Right on a beautiful rocky beach perfect for our boys to explore. The town has great restaurants and cafe. There's also a lovely...

This was an unexpected surprise while visiting Tasmania. Anchila Waterfront Cottages are located on the east coast of Tasmania in the beautiful ocean township of Bicheno. Anchila Waterfront Cottages are made up of 3 different properties. We stayed in the smallest which was the Penguin Nook but it was by no means small. It was a very spacious 1 bedroom... More
