Me, my husband and 2 year old daughter have just returned from a long weekend at Heimat Chalets. I've never written a review of anywhere I've stayed before, but it was so lovely I felt compelled! The hosts were just right - very welcoming and provided us with lots of useful advice about family friendly places to visit. The breakfast... More

We stayed in Heimat Chalet Motorhome pad with private ensuite. It was a great stay (albeit a bit windy due to the weather). The property is in a quiet location with great views and privacy. There are several shared areas (open BBQ area, a little hut with open fireplace + BBQ) for people to use. Families with children will enjoy... More

Perfect hosts - Excellent accommodation, will stay here again on my next visit to the island. Don't be put off by the distance out of town, 5 minutes, the setting and views will impress you as well as the feeling of peace that you are surrounded by certainly make up for it.

We booked last minute expecting something a little more than ordinary, that is exactly what we got. The peace and quiet was absolute and allowed for a lovely nights stay in a very well decorated and kept chalet wagon.

I'd really been looking forward to coming here and stayed for 4 nights but compared with the other self catering houses we visited it was small and over priced. We loved the setting; enjoying walking through the paddocks. The bedrooms were large with beautiful linen but the rest of the chalet cramped even for two people. There was nowhere to... More

Highly Recommended! Frank and Linda showed hospitality second to none, the view was fantastic and the chalets clean as anything. Excellent farm animals to check out and the eggs, bread, milk and cereals made the experience even more enjoyable!

Firstly, I was a little disappointed that we were charged an extra $40 for our 1y/o daughter to stay with my husband and myself, being that this was the 7th place we had stayed during our Tasmania holiday and the only place that had charged us extra. The host justified this by saying she was getting breakfast, though the breakfast... More

When I first step into the chalet, it gave me a cosy feeling. It was awesome ! Our stay at Heimat was a fantastic one. The air is clean and fresh. Next morning, we enjoyed feeding the alpacas,chickens, goat and Tajo, the donkey, my son favourite animal. Not forgetting to mention our friendly host, Frank and Linda. My husband left... More
