Location, location, location. We just love Tasmania & the last time we visited found the only place to stay. Literally on White Beach, in the SE of the island, this luxury upmarket B & B has it all. Bedroom with all up-to-date facilities & en suite bathroom. Breakfast was substantial which meant we didn't bother with lunch. You can either chill out & relax at Harpers or enjoy any number of activities in the area, including surfing or fishing. We had dinner in on our last night; we should have done it every evening & had one of the very best meals of our holiday, expertly cooked & served by our hosts. All produce is locally sourced & they have a small but select Tasmanian wine list.

A beautiful unspoilt spot & extremely civilized.

If you're after a truly peaceful and luxurious escape look no further than Harpers on the Beach. We felt completely pampered by not only the beautiful decor choices, fittings and location but a warm welcome accompanied by freshly coooked cake and tea on arrival and followed later by the most sumptuous meal, home cooked by Jill. (Obviously she is a chef in another life.) It's hard to get the right balance between elegance and comfort but we thought Harpers had it just spot on. I guess the true test is how hard it is to leave a place and we definitely wished we not only could afford to stay far far longer, but to possibly be rich enough to take up residence - in our dreams! Highly recommended.

Right on the beach and the couple who own it are lovely. The wife is a wonderful cook and we are pleased we reserved dinner in advance, which was a highlight.
Place is new which we liked, right on the beach which we wanted and next year we will take their self-contained cottage.
Tasmania and Harpers are worth a visit even in the winter !
