I stayed one night in a spacious villa with separate toilet, shower, kitchen/dining and lounge, and double bedroom. Very comfortable and clean. Owner/manager was extremely helpful and informative. Had a great night's sleep in a comfortable bed. Only drawback I could see for some would be that it is about 4km to downtown St Helens and the waterfront, so transport... More

Stayed here for 1 night on our way down the coast. What a pleasant surprise. We are on a budget but got a lovely apartment style room with a full kitchen and very comfortable bed. Shower was hot and electric blankets and heater kept us warm all night. Very clean and certainly great value for those on a budget.

We spent 2 nights in a fully equipped apartment. The bed was very comfortable, upstairs had a great living area and kitchen with views over the bay. Our hosts were very helpful and informative on places to visit in the area during our stay.

I'm sorry to say this and it was the only accommodation in Tasmania that I was disappointed in. It was a cheap option with the partial view but it also didn't smell good and was decorated with furniture that looked like it may have been discarded by an elderly person, the positive was that the bed was comfy and the...

We only stayed one night with friends in 2 bedroom villa, wished we could have stayed longer. The unit was very clean, well equipped and colour co-ordinated, the owners were very helpful with places to visit and especially the fishing tips. A little out of town but very quiet and lovely view from the balcony Would definitely stay again.
