    Absolutely beautiful experience
    The property was spotless, spectacular views and everything we needed for an amazing 4 days.

    5/5 Excellent

    Fantastic home, amazing views, great host
    We had a group of 8 adults stay and we had a great time. Comfortable beds, very clean throughout with plenty of room to relax. We loved the deck with the bbq off the kitchen and the views were spectacular. The walking track along the river was a highlight. Highly recommend

    5/5 Excellent

    Fantastic end to our Tassie holiday
    Where do I start? All communication with Will prior to arrival was attended to promptly and courteously. We were very excited about this property but we were even more blown away than we expected to be on arrival. The location is magnificent, spectacular river and mountain views in all directions and the house is a dream- if it were ours, we would never leave it! We were 6 adults and 5 small children and there was unlimited room, with 4 toilets, 3 showers, a spectacular bath, 3 separate entertaining areas, great, well supplied kitchen, a massive dining room and table( we called it the boardroom) and excellent laundry facilities. Superb al fresco BBQ area- I could go on forever. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to all.

    5/5 Excellent

    Family Vacation
    From the moment you walk in the door the views are SENSATIONAL!!! We were on a family vacation with 14 people. The house was extremely comfortable with an abundance of room for everyone. The house was immaculate and it had everything you needed to provide for the whole family. From the huge kitchen to the gorgeous BBQ area and spacious living areas this house exceeded our expectations. An added bonus was the kids retreat they had an absolute blast. Will was so friendly to deal with and responded extremely quickly to any communication. Highly recommend this property and we certainly will be passing this onto any future travellers visiting Hobart. Katrina
