“Very Tranquil and Snug”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a lovely cottage with beautiful, beautiful views, wish we could've stayed longer to just soak up the peacefulness and tranquil views. The fire and great supply of wood made us so snug and warm. Everything was provided to make our stay comfortable. Thanks Viki for your great communication and helpful directions. We would highly recommend Coningham Cottage.

This cottage gave us the best stay in Tasmania we could ask for. This is not a five-star hotel, instead it's the ultimate "cottage experience", away from stiff hotels in town. The cottage has everything you need, including the stunning views from the veranda you can see in the pictures. Sitting there, watching the sunset every night and having a barbecue (yes there is a barbey too) was a total bliss. We rented a car when we landed in Hobart and had it to get around for the days we were there, which I think you need. We never ate at any restaurant, we very much enjoyed cooking/barbecuing at the cottage, and we made all our purchases at Coles in Kingston. About 1 km from the cottage though you can find a bottle shop and a smaller shop.

A big thanks to owner Viki Rutter who shares this little piece of paradise with the rest of us!

“Hidden Treasure”

We choose Coningham cottage for its central location to the south coast of Hobart. The cottage was spacious and very homely & after a full day sight seeing it was a great location to come home to. The view from the rear deck over the bay was so peaceful & a great way to spend the last few hours of day as the sun fell. The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to cook, but we can suggest a few good restaurants to visit instead. The lounge was comfortable with a fire if needed. Viki was a great host & we loved our stay

“Exceeded my expectations which were high anyway.”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Coningham cottage was stunning! The view from the front sunroom and the first bedroom is simply amazing.

The accommodation is a very substantial two bedroom cottage with a sunroom, lounge/dining and great kitchen.Both bedrooms are very large. The cottage is set in a lovely garden and despite having a home on each side, feels totally private.

Viki had supplied everything. Visitors need only take their personal needs. There was even shared condiments etc. and some food in the pantry. Little touches like binoculars and a very substantial collection of books make it the ieal venue for a brief or extended holiday.

The cottage is situated onlu an easy 25 minute drive from Hobart and close to Kettering where the Bruny Island ferry leaves from. A visit to Snug Falls is worthwwhile as is the drive beyond Kettering along the coast to Cygnet.

Overall a great experience. Highly reccommended.
