We booked this upmarket B & B a few months before arriving in Tasmania. We knew we would have had a long day sightseeing around The Port Arthur World Heritage Site and we wanted somewhere quiet and beautiful to lay our heads before the next days adventure of this amazing island. This place did not disappoint. A warm welcome from...

I can't rate this place high enough. We went for my birthday weekend back in June. It was just stunning. The location is perfect. Close to everything you need, such as the Unzoo, Port Arthur and the local shop. Very clean and cosy. The beach front location is spectacular. We had one meal on site, and it was delicious. My...

The 3 course dinner prepared by Jill is not to be missed. Better than any restaurant we have visited and no where near as expensive. And veggies from their garden. Beach Cottage great for a longer stay. We will be back for sure.

We were lucky enough to have one of the ocean view rooms but all of this place is beautiful and natural. Rooms are immaculate and tastefully decorated. The view is awesome and you are only a few hundred steps from the beach. The hospitality was truly AMAZING. Breakfast was cooked to order with a menu provided and I highly recommend...

This was our recovery night after 4 days on the Three Capes track. The room was perfect, and the common area was beautiful to relax in. We had the set dinner which was great quality and value for money, home cooked food sourced from the nearby sea and their own veges garden. The beach is quiet and long, perfect for...

Jill and John have created a quintessential beach retreat—life buoys hanging on white weatherboard walls, a sailor's salute of crossed oars welcomes travellers. Harpers has the beachy tone just right. Jill welcomed us and introduced us to the cottage—spotless with just the right amount of everything, from wine glasses and pearly clean plates to a stack of good movie dvds,...

Really nice Bed and Breakfast, with a lovely view and direct access to the beach - less than a minute walk. Delicious breakfast with different choices: vegetarian/real pork sausages/bacon. Only 10 minutes from Port Arthur. Will definitely come back in summer to enjoy it even more.

Such a pleasant surprise - on the beach, cosy, peaceful and amazing hosts. A little off the beaten track but worth driving the extra 15 minutes from Port Arthur I arrived after a long day's drive and the house was warm and welcoming. Jill is an amazing cook - I ate there both nights I stayed and the food was...

We spent a couple of nights here while visiting Port Arthur, and were met by very pleasant hosts, had a great room with a wonderful view over the sea and were signposted to great local facilities as we required. Port Arthur really is just down the road, and this would be somewhere I'd return again and again to.
