We loved this place. Really nice view. We did not go anywhere but just had drinks and cheese on our terrace and enjoyed the view. Very relaxing. Perfect little place on a hill. And clean. Would go back any time if I would be in the neighbourhood.

Upon arrival we collected the keys from reception and made our way to our apartment. We were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast (eggs, bacon, bread) in our fridge for the morning! The apartment was clean and tidy with a large TV and separate sleeping area. The bathroom had a washing machine and an average shower. Fantastic views are to be...

We enjoyed our stay here for 5 nights. The owner was very generous and gave us several bottles on arrival. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very well set up with all facilities for a lengthy stay. We would highly recommend this place.

Sarah and Mike are wonderful hosts. Their property is beautiful, with amazing views of the ocean, a nice breeze..perfect to relax and enjoy the pure Tasmanian air. Sarah welcomed me and told me everything there is to do around. Bonus for me, she upgraded me to the whale view room at no charge :). To top,everything off, you will be...

The view is fantastic and the bed was very comfortable. We wanted self contained so we could cook as eateries in the area are limited. For some reason we were "upgraded" to the 2 bedroom house which is very dated. We couldn't use the kitchen as the oven was dirty and there was no microwave. No face washer in the...

'for some reason you were upgraded', is this a criticism? There is a microwave in the kitchen. It is full kitchen with everything you would expect in a domestic house. The mobile reception in Bicheno is a bit ropy...hardly the businesses fault. I appreciate the comments all be it don't agree with most of them. The Managers are extremely welcoming...

Although quite dated, it was a great place. Wish the fire was working, would have made it very cosy. Huge space, tall ceilings and amazing vistas. Great waking up to the view of the beautiful beach. Great location. Imagine that in the middle of tourist season, this place would be nicely placed slightly out of the centre of town.

Despite the steep drive up the slope this place is really worth it! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the views were spectacular. We had a problem with some tickets for the Tasmanian Devil experience and the very helpful and friendly owners called up and sorted it out for us. Would certainly stay here again.

Unfortunate double booking not their fault and made up for it with a nice breakfast to make up for the smaller room. Decent people no doubt about that. But not only was it small it was a little ridiculous even the shower was almost hard to fit in so don't try if you are over 90kg and under 175cm or...

Best description of this place would be a one bedroom self catering unit. Although we only stayed for one night, it would be great for an extended visit. Very comfortable double bed and a good shower room with washing machine if needed. The decor is a little dated however this is reflected in the excellent value for money tariff. There...
