Large living area 2 bedrooms, one large bathroom. The unit was immaculately clean. Twinnings tea and coffee available. Outdoor laundry facilities. The Rest is on the esplanade, our room was out the front and gave us a superb view.

Great location. Central to everything, RSL, beach, jetty, shops, all in walking distance. The hosts are more than accommodating. Great base to explore southern Tassie or just kick back, relax, & take in the sea views.

Pleasantly surprised by this accommodation. Rooms comfy and well heated, bedding clean and warm and location was very quiet. Great for families with bikes available and a fairie garden. Hosts were delightful. Unfortunately the Wi-fi was pitiful.
