Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The property and location are excellent. Linda has thought of every need you may have in a house. We particularly enjoyed the novelty of collecting fresh eggs in the morning.

This is really a fantastic place to stay. Spotless, luxurious (the outdoor bath is amazing), beautiful setting and close to town. The kids loved it too - they immediately ran out to play with the chickens and look for wildlife. Our only regret is not staying longer.

Linda was an amazing host and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed to make our 5 night stay comfortable. We arrived very late off the ferry and Linda had picked up an online grocery order so we could feed the troops on our first morning. This home's location is ideal for exploring quaint Deloraine and this entire area of beautiful Tasmania. Naivasha is truly something special and although we used it as a base, we could have happily spent our entire stay at the home. The home is beautifully decorated and equipped and the surroundings are just perfect, giving an unforgettable experience. We were constantly entertained by the local wildlife that cohabit and interact, and the whole family loved feeding the chickens and the ducks, who would all come to welcome us back from a day out. We would all look forward to heading back to the home at the end of a day outing, so we could again experience the tranquility and beauty. We had perfect weather and clear skies to enjoy stargazing at night, with the moon rising over the dam. The outlook over the dam to the bluegum forest is something we will remember for many years and we will certainly recommend a stay at Naivasha to anyone visiting Tassie. We have stayed at many holiday homes, and this is by far our favourite. We were all disappointed when it was time to leave but do plan to visit Tasmania again, and we would not even consider staying elsewhere to enjoy further exploring this part of the state. Thank you Linda for having us as guests at Naivasha, we loved every minute.

We stayed one night in Deloraine to break up the drive from Hobart to Cradle mountain, and just wish we’d stayed longer. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous and so thoughtfully furnished/finished. The outdoor bath was such a lovely feature (there’s also one indoors!) and we all loved the chickens, ducks, wallabies and even rabbits. To top it all off we saw a platypus in the dam! Deloraine itself is a really cute little town with lovely coffee shops, a great deli and second hand stores. It makes for a great destination in its own right, but also a convenient drive to other attractions. Linda’s cottage is perfect! We’ve stayed in a lot of different and lovely vacation homes but this one is the best of all.

The house and hosts were amazing. Beautiful, peaceful setting. Loved the book containing the history of the house, the outdoor bath, port and chocolates and fresh eggs in the hen house. This house had everything you could possibly need/want for a relaxing getaway. Lovely hosts as well.

A lovely Honeymoon
My husband and I stayed at Naivasha for the second week of our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. We had the perfect space to take things slowly, really soak in the beautiful scenery and enjoy each other’s company in. The cottage is lovely in every way!

Cosy winter retreat
Quality bed linen and towels, beautifully equipped kitchen and carefully curated design features transform this cottage from a good stay to a restful retreat. It was lovely spot for our family to base ourselves to explore the area - so cosy to come home to. The home is remarkably clean and Linda had thought of every detail to make us feel we were on holiday. And the kids loved the chickens!

One word will do...Bliss!!
Although not in Deloraine, close enough to lots of attractions to keep you going. The Cottage, and indeed Linda, was very welcoming. It has been faithfully restored and added onto and outfitted with everything necessary for a very comfortable stay. Good quality throughout, including kitchen, and bedrooms and bathroom. Very peaceful setting with large windows looking out onto the dam. We were especially taken by the many animals we saw. Loved our stay and wish we were closer than Brisbane to return more frequently. If you get the chance dont pass it up.
