I booked this place relatively last minute before hiking the 3 capes track out of Port Arthur, I stayed for 2 nights. This is a quick 10-15 minute drive from Port Arthur (note, no public transportation) to a idyllic, private beach, view from the living room of the B&B and some of the rooms. It is small, it is private,... More

We spent a happy few days at Harpers on the Beach in February 2016. It is Tasmania's best-kept secret! The house was purpose-built as a B&B, and it is in a magical position – literally "on the beach". It is attractively furnished and decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and the one evening meal we had was excellent. Jill... More

We spent two nights at Harpers on the Beach during a recent trip to Tasmania. It was a great place to stay- right on the beach! We had dinner both nights and they were fabulous. Jill and Jonathan were excellent hosts.

We only stayed one night and wish we were there longer. The rooms are beautifully kept and spacious with their own verandah for evenings in the setting sun. The white sandy beach is only a few paces away and feels like their own private beach. This is a little taste of paradise. With stunning coastlines nearby, Port Arthur and Hobart... More

We stayed two nights in this gorgeous place and although the weather wasn't perfect, everything else was. Our room was very comfortable, clean, quiet and well appointed with a great bathroom. Delicious food, prepared and served by our hosts, Jill and Jon, was amazing (as was the wine) and we had great conversation with fellow travellers at a shared dining... More

A beautiful place to stay, all too short for us. Hosts were really nice and match the accommodation which is sublime. A glorious part of the world and the most comfortable bed and room. Breakfast was unreal!!

Jill is a welcoming and accommodating hostess and it was lovely chatting to her. She provided us with an amazing home cooked and hearty breakfast. Although the room was clean and tidy, we did notice that there was no air conditioning and it was a little on the warm side on the night we stayed. Smokers note that there is... More
