We had heard about the Bungalow accommodation from friends and thought we would spend an overnight stay on a weekend. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the One-Bedroom ;Suncoast" Bungalow. Comfortable bed and spacious living area with fully equipped kitchen. Very short walk to the beach and close to the restaurants and attractions. A very relaxing stay in... More

Wonderful Villa, it was so comfy with everything you could ask for available. Nothing seemed to be too much bother. The beds were comfy, the balcony views were perfect and even the shower was pretty good. Only a walk to town or the beach etc. Could definitely have stayed longer.

New to Tasmania and needing a place to stay in Bicheno, we combed through Trip Advisor reviews, looking for accommodation that was both central and economical. We certainly found it here at Bicheno By the Bay, which is central to all the major attractions. What we didn’t count on – but also hoped for – was the complete and utter... More

Lovely clean villas, modern, all that you need for a comfortable stay, laundry facilities, dryer is free. Lovely surrounds with ducks on the pond, rabbits, heated pool, walking distance to great cafes and shops. A really lovely stay for 3 days - friendly staff and accommodating.

Clean and tidy and comfortable. But, the 80s decor and 'home-renovation' style build wont be what you are looking for if luxury is high on your list. Great for families with the 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms in 'Ebbw tide'. Great location. Easy walk to Blow hole and the small marina. Good catering facilities so you can cook your own... More

My wife, three children and I recently stayed a couple of nights at this great place while traveling down the east coast. These cabins have had a few birthdays, but they are in excellent working order, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. They feature the largest range of kitchen utensils, along with a wok, coffee plunger, pots, pans, nut cracker (great... More

If you look past the dated interiors of the cabins, this is a lovely spot to stay: great location overlooking the water; a short dive to Freycinet National Park; close to a supermarket, restaurants and an award-winning bakery; a pool, tennis court, playground and 'canoe lake' / pond with ducks; washing machine in your cabin .... what more could you...

We booked one of the motel rooms but were disappointed to find when we arrived after hours found we had been allocated a cabin. The cabins are cute from the outside but have very, very old and in some aspects battered interiors (as we suspected, hence the motel-style room booking) and aren't well heated, except for the bathroom - it...

Fantastic location, cute houses, comprehensive facilities, and the nicest estate managers I've had in a while! They were informed that I was staying over for my 21st birthday and made me a cake! The house was also lighted and pre-heated when we went in, which made the experience especially welcoming.
