We stayed at Abs by the Bay in January when the wildfires were blazing throughout Tasmania. In fact, during our stay, the fires came too close for comfort and we were evacuated... But it was hard to leave. We had become family with the owners - they emptied out their refrigerators to ensure that their guests would have enough to eat and were comfortable - we felt so well cared for and safe. I won't ever forget our picnic at sunset the beautiful bay. The kids kept their mind off the emergency by going kayaking on the bay and my husband and I enjoyed quiet walks in the area (friends tell me there is even a tennis court, just behind the cottages).

We enjoyed the cottage at Abs by the Bay from the moment we stepped in. The workmanship and the elegant decor add to the efficiency, cleanliness and sheer comfort that the two bedroom cottage offers. We had a hard time getting out of bed and getting out to enjoy all that the Tasmanian peninsula has to offer. But the proprietors made sure that we had all the information we needed to plan a wonderful two days! Superb scenery, excellent driving conditions and my son says that he had one of the best surfing experiences he has ever had!!

I can't recommend Abs by the Bay more for a family, especially one with teenage children!

Room Tip: No swimming pool but the by is right there to enjoy, even better than a pool. The property even has a small white beach for each access.

We found these units to be exceptional value when visiting Port Arthur for one night. The room was well equipped, comfortable and clean - in short, everything we needed.

The area is quiet and guests have access to the waterfront area at the back of the property. It is only a short drive to the Port Arthur Historical Site, so it was perfect for doing the evening 'ghost' tour of Port Arthur.

The hosts were very helpful in recommending the right passes for our visit to Port Arthur and other attractions around the Tasman Peninsula.

We had a lovely double room with tasteful decorations and a spotless and spacious bathroom. The kitchenette was well equipped but a table in the room would be nice because there is nowhere to eat. The rooms are far enough from the street, so we had a quiet night.
