Greeted on arrival with smiles and an unexpected afternoon tea followed by a tour of the farm to excite a 10 year Olds love of animals. Horses, sheep, pigs, ducklings, turkeys, chickens and a rooster all to be seen and fed. Accommodation on the first floor was modern cosy and spacious, the ensuite was huge with spa bath and central shower. The bed was soft and warm, with no curtains on the windows you were blessed with a night Sky of stars as far as you could see.
Great location if exploring Port Arthur and surrounds, drive to Hobart and back is scenic and pleasurable and only 40 minutes each way.
I stayed here for one week and struggled to leave. The hospitalily provided here is out of this world. Micheal really goes above and beyond to keep his guests happy. Believe me, booking this beautiful place would be the best decision you've made all day.
Thank you Micheal.
We were so happy we decided to stay here. What an amazing place. Our accommodation upstairs in Mike's place was superb. The dinners were so enjoyable. His philosophy of fresh local produce, including food from his own garden, ensures delicious and healthy meals. He is a great host, and we enjoyed his company immensely. My only fear is that as his accommodation becomes more popular, it may be harder to secure a booking.
We will definitely try to stay here again on our next visit to Tasmania.
Mike & Noel’s place was a dream come true and I am so glad I made the decision to stay there whilst visiting Port Arthur! The room and the entire property is beautifully furnished and decorated. On arrival, they had beautiful music playing which is piped into all rooms of the house via an in-house music system. You can control this individually from your room or even plug in your iPod if you like.
After we arrived we wandered the grounds with some wine in hand to check out the many animals Mike keeps on the property and to see the beautiful Gardens Noel looks after. Once it became dark we retired to the lounge room in front of the toasty fire with some red wine and a book whilst Mike prepared a beautiful meal for us. The dinner was amazing and the highlight of our trip to Tasmania. The breakfast was also delicious with fresh bread and homemade jam in the morning.
Mike and Noel’s hospitality is exemplary and if you are really after a taste and true experience of Tasmania this is the place to stay! There is also a beautiful cottage Mike has in the gardens that he lets out. If Mike has availability I encourage you to book and you won’t regret it!
Thanks again Mike And Noel!
I've traveled all over the world and this was easily the best accomodation I've ever had. The room was beautiful, the balcony overlooked an incredible landscape and to top it all off there was even a spa in the ensuite!
Afternoon tea on arrival, supper after our adventure in port Arthur and an exquisite breakfast served with home made bread.
Would reccomend to anyone, and we're sure to be back.
