Breathtakingly Beautiful
From the moment you leave the highway and drive up the steep gravel driveway you know you are heading somewhere special. Upon entering the building you are taken back by the surrounding beauty of not only the internal space but also the sweeping external views. Modern, clean and isolated are some words that spring to mind. You are met by the host and given a run through the property after which the solitude sets in. Allow plenty of time to peruse the substantial library The outdoor tub is amazing as is the gallery just a stroll away. Rocky Hills Retreat is simply beautiful

Tasmania's Best Kept Secret
This was the most amazing property. Everything was pure perfection. I felt so relaxed and like never wanted to leave. The attention to detail was phenomenal and the bath....oh my goodness. I could not fault this property. The only down side was that I didn't book to stay longer. This is my number one recommendation in Tasmania!
