“Quiet little hideaway close to Freycinet National Park”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Immaculate mini house, with all mod cons, a few minutes drive from Coles Bay & a short further distance to the stunning Freycinet National Park. Hazard's Escape is set up primarily for couples - or singles I suppose. The unit is ultra-modern & is well set-up for short or long stays. There is no stove, but this more than made up for by a invection cooktop, a microwave & a combined grill/oven. There is no dishwasher but we did not find that to be a problem. Hazard's Escape is built close by the owners' house but is remarkably quiet for all that. Queen size bed is suitably comfortable & there is no lack of hanging space should you wish to unpack. Shower (no bath) supplied plenty of stream & heat. Heated towel rail is a nice touch. Lounge has a very comfortable leather sofa, an excellent tv with a DVD player as well as a VCR (plus a range of movies). There is also a mini hi-fi (with aux port) should you want for music. Walls are decorated with some stunning images of the natural beauty abounding hereabouts. Criticisms? Hard to come up with much. The outside area could be enhanced with a small BBQ perhaps. Other than that my only other tip would be for visitors to bring your slippers: the polished concrete floor looks great but is a tad cold. Near the tv is no problem: there's a very warm rug - elsewhere not so great. In summer the floor might be a boon. Best bring your slippers.

“A Real Gem”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely unit. It is very comfortable and has all the amenities you need. The bonus for us was the floor heating - what a wonderful suprise that was when it came on, no need for the heater after that! Thanks Ros for a great place to stay :)

“Very hospitable, fantastic modern place to stay in Coles Bay!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We traveled through Coles Bay on a winter trip around Tasmania, and this is one of the places we stayed in that we remember most. It was modern, very clean and warm, with underfloor heating! We had a wonderful stay at Hazards Escape, and would happily recommend it to any family and friends!

“Hazard's Escape: Gateway to the Freycinet Peninsula”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We loved our stay at Hazard's Escape and would definitely stay there again in the future. The apartment is modern, fresh, well equipped and comfortable for a short stay. It is very conveniently located for visitors to the Freycinet Peninsula and has a view to the spectacular Hazard's Mountain Range from the private deck. The modern comfortable décor is enhanced by art work and photography of the local area. Our hosts were friendly and helpful whilst respecting our privacy at all times.
