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.

Amazing stunning place, perfect
This place is amazing, very easy to drive here with good parking. Has a front and back deck so you can take advantage of the sun. Very well equipped kitchen & well labeled. Bedrooms are an amazing size with nice bedding & lots of towels. Very conveniently located close to the town's supermarket & RSL. But also close to many local walks . Highly recommended

Superb!
It is hard to add anything that hasn't already been said. This is a wonderful superb house in a wonderful superb location with a wonderful superb view. Large, comfortable, interesting design and lots of extras. Several decks and balconies, two BBQ's on different sides of the house to suit your mood or weather, fruit trees and vegies in the garden, lots of supplies left by the owner, lots of info provided on the area. We have stayed in a lot of holiday houses and apartments over several decades, and this is up there as one of the best.

Amazing view and property
A delightful property with amazing views, stayed at Quarry Hills for 2 nights wished we could have stayed longer, so spacious, bright, clean, modern and homely feel. We arrived early than anticipated and have the wonderful pleasure of meeting Nicola, such an amazing friendly, helpful host, she has thought of everything and more you could ever need with attention to details. Will definitely come back for longer stay highly recommended.

We're fussy ........ and ...... We didn't want to leave!
Wow, and wow, what a fantastic home. And it makes you feel like it is home too. Everything is luxury , comfy king sized beds, luxury linens, fully equipped kitchen to cook up a storm. The views from every window are amazing, the photos don't do it justice. There is a fantastic wood fire but we didn't get to use it as we had lovely warm weather. We enjoyed some lovely tomatoes, berries and peaches from the garden. The first night of our stay I saw a wallaby in the garden too! The air is so clean, and the views of the night sky, milky way are stunning. I think on two of the nights we were there I could see a faint Aurora Australis ....... The home has a wall of books, and there are board games in the cupboard under the kitchen bench.( It took me days to find them). There is a small IGA supermarket a few minutes walk away and bottleshop, plus a few cafes, but my suggestion is to bring supplies with you, especially is you like gourmet or anything fancy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dover, the area is so close to Tahune Airwalk, Hastings Caves, Southport and further south. We enjoyed fishing from the jetty, managed to catch 10 fish in total, but all but one were under sized and thrown back. We've left the hand reels and tackle there for anyone else that stays who might like to "go fishing" too. Do we recommend this home? Absolutely!!

No photo can do this property justice
Quarry Hill Lookout is by far the best property we have ever stayed in. On approach up the driveway my breath was taken away by the majesty of this property. Upon entry all I can say is it just got better and better with every little discovery we made. The architect must be a true visionary, with EVERY view vantage catered for. There are three full sized bedrooms and three bathrooms two of which are ensuites. The master bedroom has a luxurious King sized bed with views over the river that are awesome. I awoke on the second day to look out from the bed onto a sunrise that felt like a treat for my senses. Everything is catered for and I mean everything. I don't want to give too much away as I'd love others to be as surprised as we were. I was even able to make my husband a birthday cake with cake tins provided. He was shocked as I've never baked him a cake before! There are beaches a plenty to explore, Roaring Beach was our favourite swimming beach but past Ida Bay Railway were some more unexpected surprises. There are shops and facilities within walking distance and the RSL also within walking distance. The other thing I must mention is that we were able to take our fur baby who is a seasoned traveller and he was also catered for. No words or photos can express how our trip to this property felt and we will go back again. We don't really want to share it but that would be unfair to Nicola and Leigh who have truly gone above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Thank you doesn't seem enough.

What a great find!
We decided last minute to head to Tasmania for a short five day break. It was the last week of school holidays and everything was booked up. Then I found Quarry Hill Lookout and am so glad I did! It a lovely building with great decor, top notch fittings and best of all, WHITE LINEN! I just hate holiday homes with colourful printed linen! Nicola is a great host and very helpful. We travel a lot and highly recommend this great house for your next trip to Tasmania.

Excellent and spectacular home
The location is amazing. The views are spectacular. The home is 5 star with everything you might need supplied. Jacob is a great host, nothing is too much trouble. We will be back and hope to bring some friends with us so they can experience this fantastic retreat as well but will be staying longer next time.
