Thank you for staying for 4 nights and also for writing such a detailed review. Whilst I'm pleased you enjoyed yourself here, I'm a little mortified that you had a cold shower one day. We'll look into our heating/hot water system so this shouldn't happen next time you come!

We stayed here over a year ago in June and I must fault myself for not having written this sooner. Nevertheless, this place and the experience has been so memorable that I had to do justice to the awesome experience we had here and write this review. Let me start with my booking experience.

What a lovely apartment, roomy, spotless, quiet and beautiful decor. Tara was very friendly and supplied a yummy breakfast basket with home baked warm bread and ample goodies including plunger coffee. Thanks for a very nice stay.

Tara's continental breakfast is one of the reasons we put on weight on our Tasmanian holiday. To get a fresh baked loaf of bread every morning was just the start. Add to that home made preserves and jams, let alone cereals with a variety of teas and coffees. Wonderful.

This was easily the best and most memorable four night stay that our family has ever had. Tara had a real passion for their organically run farm and their accommodation which went above & beyond to make us feel welcome. Every morning we looked forward to the wonderful complimentary breakfast basket and our 12 year old daughter and 10 year...

One can not complain about the accommodation. Large, clean and feels like home. A truly wonderful place where you get to stay close to the animals. You can join Tara in the morning to feed the animals. Tara leaves the breakfast basket in the morning and it's better than any other hotel breakfast. Cheap and worth every dollar. If I...
