We rented the 2 bed room flat on the second floor which had the panoramic view of the Bicheno Bay from the balcony. That was enough to make it the highlight of our trip to Tasmania. At nights, there are wallabies all around the property, which got our kids all excited. Definitely made it a great experience rather than staying... More

Million dollar views from the lounge room, bedroom, and verandah. Lovely benches on the front lawn where you can watch the ocean, observe the local wildlife, or look at the wondrous stars. Worth a stay!

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

We stayed here for 2 nights and were delighted by ken when he checked us in as he gave valuable information for our stay at Bicheno. 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
