Can't say enough positive things about our stay in the Eco Studio. They are brilliantly designed, exceptionally comfortable and have an amazing view, including wallabies and echidnas right outside the studio. Highly recommended.

Simple design, but yet it has everything you need and honestly it is all about the views and the surroundings. I wanted to sleep with the blinds open so I could take it all in....Wallabies everywhere, beautiful sunset, and a calm morning. The kitchen has all the basics you would need to make a meal. Wifi works. Shower is warm...

Thank you to Phillipa and Virginia for hosting us during our 3 nights in Coles bay and freycinet, it is something we will not forget. We had booked the saltwater shack but as it was unavailable, Phillipa very kindly offered offered us a free upgrade to the oyster bay lodge - this was spectacular. It was perched on a hill...

Very impressed by the design of this eco studio. You got everything you need in the room with a view that overlooks the bay. The resort is also nestled in the wildlife area and there have been multiple wallaby sightings. The owners are also very friendly and helpful! Highly highly highly recommend!

Wow, I can't rave enough about this hotel. I wouldn't even call it a hotel - it's more like an upscale, modern cabin. The cabin is situated about 6km off the main road, right near Freycinet National Park. It's completely secluded back there, with just your fellow cabin-goers sharing the space with you. The little cabins are quite small -...

We stayed in one of the lodges for twelve nights. Could easily have spent another twelve nights there! The Lodge was well equipped, very clean, the bed very comfortable, plenty of choices for breakfast provided including free range eggs, freshly baked bread, great honey and some really nice wine-NOT drunk with breakfast though! Stunning views, Wallabies everywhere with sightings of...

Couldn't ask for a better escape. We booked the ocean view eco-studios for three nights early December. Every studio is equipped with a fully-furnished kitchen with two stove-tops, a microwave, a fridge, a toaster, a kettle and plenty of pots and plates so you can cook your meals. The owners also stock the kettle with croissants, jam, butter, milk and...

On my friend's recommendation, we stayed here for 2 nights. This is such a different place where one could appreciate the beautiful scenery by simply lying on your bed. Every time we got out of our door, we bumped into either kangaroos or wombat. Although this is not a glamorous setting, the little lodge is impeccably clean with almost crispy-feeling...

My partner and I recently stayed at Phillipa and Virginia's property. It was absolutely beautiful and so secluded. The cabin was small and cosy, we loved the Smart TV with Netflix (perfect for when the rain came!) and the heated floor in the bathroom was such a nice treat! Phillipa and Virginia were lovely and easy to communicate with in...

When we booked the lodge, we didn't know we had to get up the hill. We had an amazing time at Freycinet Eco retreat. The place equipped with excellent cooking grill/microwave. The lodge is thoughtfully designed with quality. The location is great, you can see the sun come up from your deck. The scene is amazingly beautiful. Also the wild...
