“#1 host in Tassie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

If there is an award for #1 host in Tasmania Doria will definitely win this prize! We've travelled four weeks on Australian mainland including one week on the beautiful island of Tasmania. Our stay in Bicheno was one of the most memorable especially because of our host Doria. A warm welcome, always available or informing us where she would be if we needed her, a great breakfast each morning and even e-mailing us because she heard a storm hit the airport the moment we would take-off.

Bicheno is neatly located on Tassie's East coast close to beautiful Freycinet NP (Wineglass Bay). And Windows is on a quiet spot (i.e. not along the main road) in town with nice views of the ocean and coast.

A very large room, bathroom, balcony and shared living room and breakfast table. And Doria doesn't allow you to clean up anything by yourself :-) as "You are on holiday". Great beds and a huge TV. Being an internet junkie I missed the WiFi.

Have your lunch or supper at Pasini's (please book!). Bicheno doesn't have that much spots to eat, but Pasini's would not be out of place in Hobard or Sydney! Just a two minute walk from Doria's place.

Room Tip: Both the Sunset and Sunrise suites are great. Both have more or less the same view and design.

Windows was lovely! New, clean and well positioned in Bicheno. Only complaint I would have is the shared living area between the two bedrooms. The bedrooms are large, and you could spend most of your time in there - but I would dislike having to share a breakfast table with strangers when on a romantic getaway. We were fortunate in that no one was staying in the other room when we were there. Something to be mindful of if you're looking for a private getaway.

We stayed at Windows on Bicheno in September for 3 nights and those 3 nights were the highlight of our 2 weeks in Tasmania. Everything about this place is 5-star! And Doria was the perfect host, plus her breakfasts are delicious!! We were lucky enough to get in at the last minute and Doria made us feel so welcome. We would highly recommend staying at Windows on Bicheno - the views are stunning, it's absolutely spotless, very relaxing, wonderful spa bath and did I mention Doria's cooking - one of the best big breakfasts we've ever had! Thanks again Doria!

Had an amazing stay at Windows... truly a 5 star booking! Doria was so attentive to our needs (including arranging birthday trimmings!) and was so knowledgable to the attractions in the area.
Clean, spacious, ultra comfortable, beautiful views, delicious breakfast... the list goes on. She even organised for the Swans to win the grand final for us!!! Loved the local furnishings, and her attention to details. Luxury! Oh... did I forget to mention the smell of freshly baking bread to awaken the soul each morning?

Room Tip: Eat out at Cirano's French restaurant... this will tantalize the tastebuds!

We spent 4 days here as part of our honeymoon and it was an awesome stay! Doria was just wonderful, happy to attend to our every need - asking us each day what we'd like for breakfast and giving us lots of advice on where to visit in the area. We were blown away with how beautiful the place was - stunning views of the beach, our room was huge with its own balcony and spa bath, huge home-cooked breakfasts each mornng, we couldn't of asked for more. We never had to lift a finger, we just relaxed and enjoyed beautiful Bicheno. We're already planning our next visit!!

From initial enquiry and subsequent booking, through to our warm welcome upon arrival, and our fond farewell, Doria's hosting and property certainly ticked all the boxes for our 4 day visit in June. Spacious, comfortable and clean accommodation, with stunning views from bedrooms and lounge and oh so quiet location, bliss. Artwork reflecting the local area, attention to detail commendable and we must not omit mentioning the truly delicious, generous and decadent breakfasts cooked to perfection. Doria obviously enjoys her role as mine host and in house chef and is both knowledgable and helpful in regards to activities that suit her guests. Choosing to stay in a bed and breakfast is so rewarding when the host balances personal attention to guests, and awareness of privacy perfectly; Doria manages this consumately.

My husband and I stayed at Windows on Bicheno a few weeks ago. It was a few days away from the kids so we wanted to stay somewhere quiet and luxurious. The accommodation is very comfortable - with a lovely bed and fantastic bathroom that even comes with 'signature scents'. It is also very very clean. We found Gloria to be very welcoming and helpful and definately generous with the lovely breakfasts. She also directed us to a lovely sheltered pebble beach that was deserted and just lovely. The accommodation is in a great location as others have said in walking distance from everything in Bicheno which is a lovely little beach side town. The balcony from the suite had a lovely view but was only large enough for one sun lounger and no chairs. The larger balcony with table and chairs is a shared one.
We were lucky to be the only ones staying at the time as we would have found the shared living and kitchen area inconvenient for a quiet getaway as it wouldn't have felt terribly private. Both suites open into this area so other guests would likely disturb you coming and going and if they were talking in this area, and would be able to hear you talking in your room. This was really the only place to sit and relax after sightseeing. Would definately stay again if I could hire the two suites together so you have the whole floor.
