“Mesmerising views and wonderful on the beach cottage.”
Reviewed February 22, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us, even if just for a few days. It was exactly what we needed to wind down after a very busy, but very enjoyable trip around Tassie. We are so glad we left Frogmouth Cottage to the end of our trip. Our 8th accomodation and what a house! Just beautiful and the best equipped property we have stayed in. All the little extras that you don't find elsewhere were very much appreciated, especially the slippers and pantry items. The view is amazing. We had 2 days of overcast, cold weather but that didn't dampen our stay. We were warm and cosy inside and still walked the beach 4 times. On the last afternoon the sun came out and the dolphins came to play. What an experience. We knew we could return home experiencing everything we had come to see. The large window in the lounge room is just mesmerising. We could have sat there all day (and very nearly did). Watching the water, the birds and mother nature was just so peaceful and serene. We were very excited to see Frogmouth Cottage from the air as our plane flew over the area on our return to Sydney.
Thank you for making the process of booking your property so easy and the phone calls to check everything was fine.

Frogmouth Cottage is a drug. If you are diagnosed with a condition needing Tasmanian holiday then you are in trouble. There is no known cure, however frequent visits will alleviate the symptoms. Frogmouth Cottage is the best medicine on your script. The initial effect will be that of a shock and awe on arrival, then when you come to, followed by a state of pleasant delirium for the duration of your stay, transcending and drifting from reality to fantasy on a high nowhere else experienced, almost a fiction but real, as close as it gets to paradise without dying. As the check out nears, resistance to leaving will increase and like all drugs, when you leave you will suffer withdrawal symptoms, wanting to come back. There are other side effects. You will loose brain cells to some of the most beautiful memories you will ever make and your judgment will be impaired so that any other nice place you visit will not be quite.

“Marred paradise”
Reviewed February 18, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Fantastic location and facilities was marred by the severe intrusiveness of the owner.(Were we being watched by cameras?)

Thank you for your review Keith, however I was not in Tasmania and camera monitoring is turned off during guests stay and you had the cottage all to yourself. I phoned to welcome you after check in to make sure you settled and all was Ok. I then called you the next day only to ensure that the new appliances we installed in the kitchen(induction top and oven) that even we had not used yet, are all working properly. I then called you a night before check out to thank you for staying and wish you a farewell. Up to that point everything was well and you were very happy perfect guests. The problem was your very very very late checkout the next morning that was 1 hr and 20 minutes late. Late checkout is a problem for us because it interferes with our cleaners trying to get the house ready for the next guests in extremely tight 4 hr time window. Few minutes would not have mattered but a very very late check out is disrespectful to me, to the cleaners and the incoming guests who expect everything to be ready and perfect at check in, just as it was for you.
Thank you for staying at Frogmouth Cottage

“Perfect secluded location”
Reviewed February 12, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Frogmouth Cottage is a magical, peaceful home perfect for a holiday. I stayed with 5 other women and the property had everything we needed. Great views from 2 bedrooms and the lounge/dining area. Water is pristine and safe to swim and you have it virtually all to yourself. Perfect for anybody who wants quiet and privacy - families, couples or like us, a group. Branko was fantastic to deal with and was in contact with us to ensure we had everything we needed. Would recommend this property to anyone. The view when you woke up was stunning every day.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed December 21, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

4 generations thoroughy enjoyed their stay at Frogmouth Cottage. It was right on the beach and so nice to hear the waves and watch the tides go in and out.. The cottage was beautifully decorated and well equipped. The kayaks supplied were lots of fun. We would recommend this cottage to any family.

“The magic is still, well, magic”
Reviewed October 1, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Second visit in a couple of years and we wondered if first time around we were just so overwhelmed that the rose-coloured glasses took over. The truth. Nah. We dwere right first time. This is a spectacular, unique (no more superlatives) place, right on the edge of the sand of a beautiful Tassie beach in a quiet Tassie town. If isolation is your thing with all the advantages of excellent amenities within cooee then this is the place for you. A great spot for couples (romantic, sounds of the sea), or families (beach, kayaking, fishing), or solos seeking inspiration for that novel. What can we say? Frogmouth is just about perfect. Great hosts (Branko and Ivanka) with precious touches such as all the kitchen basics, first class cooking and BBQ facilities, a stunningly-efficient fireplace for chilly night, fishing gear, play equipment, kayaks, DVDs, books ... the list goes on. We spent 12 nights this time around. Frankly, we would love to live there!

Thank you for a lovely review, Steve. There is no business like a repeat business, all of our guests say they want to come back and many have. For us, it's a challenge to make guest's return as pleasurable as the first impression but we work hard at it, constantly improving, maintaining and upgrading.
It's nice to know you had great and relaxing family time and that you left with wonderful memories. Till next time, take care. Cheers!

thank you Branco and Ivanca for a wonderful and memorable stay, your detail to make your guests feel welcome was second to none
if anyone is visiting the wonderful Tasmania we would highly recommend you spend time in Frogmouth Cottage at Primrose Bay, we managed to visit Hobart, Port Arthur and Bruny Island without much effort at all from the Cottage

Thank you for making Frogmouth Cottage the first stop, of your, first-ever trip to Tasmania. As they say, there is no impression like the first impression. We are glad you are taking some beautiful memories with you and we are sure that the rest of your stay in Tassie will be just as wonderful. Thank you for the review and we hope you visit us again.
Cheers
