We spent a weekend away in the deep south and booked Southern Forest Accommodation through AirBnB. What a find! Beautiful, secluded, quiet bush surrounds, with the most beautiful flowering natives, pademelons grazing and nothing but the sound of the birds and the breeze. The accommodation was amazing; totally spotless, incredibly comfortable and very well-provisioned. They really have thought of everything!... More

Lovely little cottage in the bush with a wood fire. 2 bedrooms so would be good for a family or 2 couples. The breakfast ingredients were very good with freshly baked bread, delicious. The tavern at the end of the road does nice dinners. We did walks at Harz mt national park and cockle creek. A very relaxing weekend.

We stayed at a few different cabins & cottages while in Tasmania and this one was by far the most welcoming and enjoyable for us as a family. Everything was spotlessly clean. There was lovely treats waiting & a warming fire. The furnishings and fixtures were lovingly chosen and would compliment any home not just a rental property. We would... More

We arrived late in the afternoon without pre-booking and thankfully the cabin was vacant. We were warmly welcomed by Barbara and Steve, who provided a lovely basket of breakfast items including a loaf of warm home baked bread.
