Harpers on the Beach
Ranked #1 of 2 White Beach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2013

From the moment we arrived (a little later than anticipated), we were welcomed. We were at once impressed. We unpacked the car, washed our faces and settled at the dining table for the most wonderful home cooked masterchef meal. Three amazing courses, we could not resist any of it. I have food allergies and was very spoilt with my very own apple crumble. Seriously it was devine.The breakfast was also very good.
The room was very comfortable and private. We had our own balcony with a view to the beach and a 20m stroll found you at the waters edge. We had a lovely stay at Harpers on the Beach.
The other travellers we met had stayed there before and come back for their second visit. If you are to have only one B&B experience or have had a bad one in the past make sure you put Harpers on your list to stay at and they will provide you with the best a B&B can offer.
The only bad thing I can say is I ate to much good food. Thank you for a great experience.

Room Tip: We choose a room with balcony and view of the beach. It was lovely.

Our first ever stay at a B &B turned out to be close to perfect. Beautiful clean quite room, good bed, wi fi, great food breakfast and dinner. And a wonderful location with squeak clean white sandy beach just off the verandah and blue wrens nesting in the dunes. Just a wonderful stay. Excelent cellar and good prices. Just a magic couple of days..

Room Tip: beach front room was just great.

This accommodation was an idyllic location that was perfect for exploring the Port Arthur Historic site, visiting the Tasmanian Devil Conservation park and exploring the Tasman peninsula. The service was excellent from the cooked breakfast to the optional three course dinner and friendly conversations with the owner. I can highly recommend this as an ideal place to stay.

I wrote some notes on this place:

Gorgeous location
Right on the beach
Lovely room and decor
Breakfast is more than what you need
Incredible time here

Other than that, I am speechless.
Oh but you need a car to get here, but great places to visit nearby and places to eat dinner.

Room Tip: Get a beach front room, the view is to die for!

This is a superior property for an affordable rate. The hosts have got the B & B philosophy right with attentive care but careful respect for privacy. The breakfast options are great and will set you up for the day. The rooms are impeccably clean and the comfortable beds ensure an undisturbed sleep in this perfect location. Quiet without being too far away you can be in Port Arthur in no time if you have a car which is the best option for Tasmanian touring. I highly recommend this property and its fabulous hosts

What a wonderful visit! We arrived in Tasmania for a short, 2 day visit. Jill at Harper's did so much to make our stay comfortable, fun, and relaxing.  She emailed with me several times before our trip responding quickly to my emails and sending along many helpful and top notch suggestions for activities including a fun and not to be missed Tasman Island Cruise (3 hours, well worth the $$ and time) and dinner options nearby (strongly suggest the restaurant at Stewarts Bay Lodge if you're near Port Arthur) . When we arrived, the cottage was ready for us complete with an espresso machine, tidy house, comfy bed. It was my husband's birthday, and Jill made a yummy lemon cake for him and presented it to us when we arrived (just in time for us to enjoy it on the deck before our long walk on the nearby beach). We decided to have dinner at Harpers the first night. Good choice! Jilly cooked an delicous gourment dinner of fresh salmon and garden veggies. (all keeping in mind our dietary restrictions on other meats). The wine list included lots of local Tasmanian wines - we enjoyed a fragrant and delicous bottle over dinner. The apps of shrimp were also great, the dining room is comforatble and has a great view out the window. Desert (excellent) included a hot baked apple crisp and coffee. One of our best meals of the trip. We rested comfortably in the cottage, with the sound of lapping waves along the beach just outside. I highly recommend Harpers! Thanks Jilly for making this a special and memorable trip for us.

Room Tip: The cottage is nice for a couple and two singles - there are two rooms with a shared bath and a laun...
