Beautiful location, exceptional food and perfect hospitality. We stayed in the cabin and had our meals in the main house. The meals were better than I have experiened in some five star hotels and the produce was fresh from their own garden. Would have loved to stay longer. Highly recommended!

This place is just beautiful. We could have stayed for more nights easily but had to move on to see other places on the island. We had a studio with sea-view, located right out to the beach with access to a large porch where you can sit and enjoy breakfast in the morning. Room was bright, clean and cozy. Bed...

We had a lovely room in the beautiful main building in a gorgeous location. Peace and tranquility on the beach. Great hospitality and a very good dinner in house. Really convenient for Port Arthur and the cruise.

Stayed in the self-contained beach hut, great facilities and close to Port Arthur attractions. Beautiful beach, our only negative was the unseasonably cold weather but the hut was warm and relaxing. Had everything you need to self-cater and a supermarket nearby too. Beautiful area of Tasmania!

Perfect place to spend a few days while visiting Port Arthur. Our room was comfortable and lovely. Breakfast was great! And our hosts did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Location can't be beat. On a beautiful crescent beach with fabulous white sand.

Harper's on the Beach is beautiful. Great position on the bay, lovely for walk and a swim. Room was very comfortable and had a gorgeous deck and view to the beach. Breakfast was delicious and the antipasto plate is a must!

Only 15 minutes to Port Arthur. We stayed the night before our Three Capes Track experience, but would love to have gone back after our walk for a couple of nights rest and relaxation. Also for Jill's excellent breakfast.

Good location for visiting the area and right by the beach for an evening stroll. Very comfortable, clean and modern. Great breakfast. Lots of nice touches like real coffee and shortbread in our room. Highly recommended.

We booked this upmarket B & B a few months before arriving in Tasmania. We knew we would have had a long day sightseeing around The Port Arthur World Heritage Site and we wanted somewhere quiet and beautiful to lay our heads before the next days adventure of this amazing island. This place did not disappoint. A warm welcome from...
