We came to Tasmania 5 years ago and always planned to visit this area as my wife had been here in the seventies and raved about it. The low-key arrival at a private gate and the unsealed road access up through the bush give a taste of what is to come. Further and further up and up you arrive at...

Located up a private gravel driveway up the side of a mountain, this really is remote, but not too far to drive down the peninsula to the attractions. There are various cabins dotted around the site, all secluded and hidden from view. Ours had a balcony overlooking forest down towards Coles Bay. We even had a wallaby outside the room...

Had a great few nights at the Eco retreat cabins; these small cabins were well appointed and finished to a high standard with a few great touches like heated floors and towel rail in the bathroom. Bed was comfy and the wifi surprisingly good! The uninterrupted views out from the verandah (and the bed) were the real selling point and...

Stayed in the studio - comfortable bed and very clean. Hosts friendly and helpful. But it is far from beach and far from any walks or restaurants. Have to drive up and down to go anywhere. But had a great nights sleep !

Thank you for your review, it’s good to know that despite our location, you enjoyed our accommodation. On the question of our location – I would say that most of our guests feel that the amazing view and staying in the middle of a 1200 acre nature reserve is worth a little drive. Something that would be difficult to emulate...

Tiny but an utterly sleek,Scando design. It's amazing what you can do with a small space. Loved the verandah overlooking the ocean. Wallabies gather next to it at dusk. The eight cabins are in close proximity to each other,but guests are quiet and considerate so noise is not a problem. Immaculately clean. Virginia is an absolutely lovely host. Don't forget...

Can't say enough positive things about our stay in the Eco Studio. They are brilliantly designed, exceptionally comfortable and have an amazing view, including wallabies and echidnas right outside the studio. Highly recommended.

Simple design, but yet it has everything you need and honestly it is all about the views and the surroundings. I wanted to sleep with the blinds open so I could take it all in....Wallabies everywhere, beautiful sunset, and a calm morning. The kitchen has all the basics you would need to make a meal. Wifi works. Shower is warm...

Thank you to Phillipa and Virginia for hosting us during our 3 nights in Coles bay and freycinet, it is something we will not forget. We had booked the saltwater shack but as it was unavailable, Phillipa very kindly offered offered us a free upgrade to the oyster bay lodge - this was spectacular. It was perched on a hill...

Very impressed by the design of this eco studio. You got everything you need in the room with a view that overlooks the bay. The resort is also nestled in the wildlife area and there have been multiple wallaby sightings. The owners are also very friendly and helpful! Highly highly highly recommend!

Wow, I can't rave enough about this hotel. I wouldn't even call it a hotel - it's more like an upscale, modern cabin. The cabin is situated about 6km off the main road, right near Freycinet National Park. It's completely secluded back there, with just your fellow cabin-goers sharing the space with you. The little cabins are quite small -...
