We stayed two nights in this fabulous period house - everything was great but the breakfast was a real highlight & we would have happily stayed longer. Attention had been given to everything to make our stay enjoyable & we were very grateful for great advice on what to do locally.

We stayed at Schouten House on the tale end of our honeymoon trip around Tasmania. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating, and breakfast was lovely. Our room was absolutely charming, and although we visited in summer, I can also see this being a wonderful and cosy winter escape. One thing that I really appreciated was although they are running...

We stayed at Schouten House for 2 nights. The hosts were excellent and the accommodation very comfortable. The real surprise was the magnificent food - if you have food intolerances Jody and Cameron will preserve your good health with satisfying and yummy food. Do visit their website to get a better understanding of their approach. We recommend a stay there!

We had lovely stay at the shouten house. It's very well run, owners are friendly and the breakfasts is fantastic! The house is cozy and has a lot of character, with a nice living room where guests can relax and drink port or cherry. Location is good, right next to the beach and at 45 mins drive to Freycinet.

We stayed in the Walnut Bay View room at Schouten House B&B for two nights mid-week in November. Schouten House has been lovingly restored and is obviously well cared for. There is a very comfortable guests lounge downstairs and a small and comfortable guests lounge upstairs as well. Our room was of a comfortable size with a desk and chair,... More

We discovered Schouten House here on Trip Advisor, and made the decision to stay here based on the previous reviews. The proprietors (Jodie and Cameron) work hard to deliver a great experience for their guests. We had a very positive experience during our stay here, and would highly recommend Schouten House to anyone looking for accommodations in Swansea. One thing... More

Sitting in the guest lounge next to the blazing fire with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong quietly filling the background I was expecting Poirot to enter the room. This house is a trip back in time. The breakfast was truly excellent showing off the best of Tasmanian produce. The other reviews here do tell a true story of the comfort... More

Cameron and Jodie made us feel very welcome from the time we arrived at their B & B. Our room was spotlessly clean with plenty of room. The room has period furniture but with all the trimmings. The breakfast was fantastic and our stay was excellent value for money. We will remember Swansea because of our stay at Schouten House.... More
