We stayed in November 2014 and have to say that Frances and Henry are the nicest people you will meet. We stayed for a week with a 4 year old and an 18 month old. Henry was great, he organised a highchair and portacot as well as a stair barrier. The place itself is awesome as can be seen from the photos. Although there were only two adults and two young children on our trip, the house could have a lot more people and still be comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is already there in the way of linen, kitchen utensils and appliances, washing machine, dryer etc etc. This could easily be a place were you never left.

However we decided to explore Hobart and the surrounding areas. One thing that must be noted is that this property is a good 30-40 minute drive from Hobart. This worked out well for us as the kids slept in the car when we drove to any of the attractions and then they slept in the car again on the way back.

I organised this property for a Xmas party stay for 4 siblings and spouses (and the matriarch). It was one of the very few properties in Tassie that could accommodate all of us (11 in total - 5 couples). This place was perfect. What a beautiful secluded spot and so handy to Hobart and the airport. The house had one double downstairs with its own bathroom (with spa) and outside deck. Upstairs was 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms were smaller but quite adequate with queen beds and some cupboard space. There was an upstairs family area with big screen TV and PS2, WiFi machine. The main lounge is facing the beach and the view is just superb - from Opossum Bay point to the south sweeping across north Bruny and up to Taroona. The beach is lovely and we saw a pod of dolphins of the rocks about 100 metres south of the house. The main dining room off the kitchen had a large wooden table and large wood fire. There is a separate billiard room off the dining area. The BBQ area is...
