Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, airy and well equip with a covered deck out the front. We appreciated the undercover parking as well as the fully equip kitchen and roomy living areas. The beds were firm but comfortable. It is an easy stroll into town where there are a range of restaurants and activities. It is also located close... More

We stayed in the two bedroom self-contained 'Kelly' unit. Overall a very comfortable unit in a great location. Kitchen facilities could use a bit of an update and wifi was also greatly missed. The views although green and peaceful do not include a lot of the water, it was Ok for us but I can see why some visitors would... More

Not sure if it was the warm welcome, the perfect location or the well presented units, but The Crays was a highlight of our trip around Tassie. Megs went out of her way to make the family feel welcome, and gave us a list of things to do all over Strahan. Great place for families, and an easy walk to... More

These self contained cabins are very well located between the Wilderness Railway Station and the village itself, so just a short walk along the water's edge from the two major tourist attractions - boat & rail tours. We only stayed one night and ate out so can't really comment on the self catering facilities. The cottage was a little dated... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay in these very comfortable, clean and cosy cottages. Everything has been thought of and supplied in this lovely accommodation. Beautiful views overlooking the bay and large verandah to relax on. Hope to be back one day!!

We, two couples, stayed in the two bedroom self contained 'Kelly' unit. Having two vehicles and one carport we had to be inventive with parking. Kitchen had no oven which would have been handy. Advertising indicates washing machine and dryer included, in this area you definitely need a dryer but it's not inclusive. To use the dryer you need five... More

We found everything we needed on a road trip here. A spacious cabin, laundry (shared), friendly owners, cooking facilities, perfect for a family. The wifi was a little spotty, but we didn't mind that. Very good value.

We were staying overnight on The Stormbreaker so we only had one night at The Crays. Megs was very well organised and had all the details on tap. We (4 women travelling together) had the house which gave us plenty of room with a queen , a double (or maybe it was another queen) and 2 singles. Good kitchen ,... More

Pros: The accommodation is lovely, spacious, neat & tidy with nice outdoor areas. They are great for family or friends sharing. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful. Cons: I thought we were booked into accommodation by the water which includes WiFi. Instead we were situated in the 'forest view' accommodation, which was actually in a separate location up a...
