Our overnight stay here (17-04-2015) during our first trip to Tasmania was spoiled somewhat by the local parks service deciding to do controlled burns of the local forestry and the entire town was blanketed in smoke. Not the fault of the accommodation though. The views were beautiful, but unfortunately we didn't have long enough stay here to appreciate them fully.... More

The beds are top quality for a good night sleep and the view is just breathtaking. The seats outside were great to sit and relax on with the view. The accomadtion provided plenty of... More

I booked the room with breakfast. When I arrived the view captivated me, overnight I slept very well, and in the morning had a brilliant breakfast to order. The managers even organised quinces for me for breakfast, a real treat. It's a good location to see penguins (there is a company that arranges evening tours), to visit Freycinet national park,...

We originally booked a self contained unit, and were upgraded to the spa room with breakfast included. The accommodation was nice, views were amazing, and the breakfast was delicious! We took advantage of the kayaks provided by our hosts, and went for a paddle from the private beach a short walk from the accommodation which was fantastic. We had our... More

We found the views amazing and the staff we very helpful assisting us to book the Penguins tour, suggesting dinner venue. The unit was well presented and attractive. The ability to witness the wild life outside your door was great. We saw some small wallabies and my aged mother had the best sleep of our trip at this accommodation. We... More

We made a spontaneous decision to head over to Bicheno for the weekend and found this spot on Wotif and the reviews were great. No wonder, the view was nothing short of breathtaking and the unit itself was lovely and spacious, clean and very comfortable. Just out of town, the retreat was so peaceful and if you head down the... More

An ideal spot that feels secluded but has easy access to town and a short walk to the beach. Lots to do in the area. Unit 4 was clean and lovely, small but uncrowded, with everything 2 people could need. We cooked up yummy fresh seafood from town in our kitchenette. Price was more than fair and the hosts were...

We just loved being here. End of a couple of weeks driving around Tasmania, and the perfect place to unwind. Outstanding views and easy walk to beach. Good central location for day trips north, south and west. We had email instructions on what to do if 'reception' was unattended and settled ourselves in. Happily sat for hours on our veranda...
