“Nice location with plenty to do nearby.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

I have stayed at the Convict Beach House cottage twice for several days each visit. I found the cottage comfortable and clean with quality fittings. The bay view is lovely with a peaceful outlook. The hosts are informitive, helpful without being in your face. There are pretty coves and lovely beaches to explore within a short drive as well as the interesting convict coal mine site nearby. Ask the hosts about the terrific cliff walks on the Tasman Peninsula. There is plenty of local info in the cottage. Highly recommended.

The convict beach house was the perfect base for our young family to see the south eastern part of Tasmania.

The cottage was very homely and comfortable with brilliant views! Ample space for the kids to run around and also a great cubby!

A washing machine would be a useful addition to the cottage.

Easily found & the cottage has great amenities with a deck to sit on and look over the water. Our host gave us good directions for a walk on the beach & nearby sites to visit.

As a surprise birthday present, a holiday with my husband and girls, I couldn't have asked for more. The unit was perfect, clean, fully self contained and suited us down to the ground. We were close enough to all of the attractions, but far enough away to be quiet, secluded and very private.

We can't get back there soon enough- a little piece of paradise in a very busy world. Congratulations on having such a unique, modern and peaceful unit for us to call home for 3 nights.

Good luck with the renovations on the old convict buildings- we will back to see the progress!!

The Convict Beach House was lovely - spotless, comfortable, and easy to find. I would definitely recommend it.

This was a great place to stay. It was our first trip to Tasmania, so i didn't know much about the place. The Convict Beach House wasn't as close to Port Arthur as i had imagined, but it was only about 20 mins drive.

The rooms were compact, but very comfortable. There was a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful view of the water and trees.

Christine was so friendly and helpful. Of all the places we stayed on our trip, this was definately the best!
