Stayed here for 3 nights and was very happy with everything. We stayed in unit 2, had our own bbq (did not use), small fridge (good freezer compartment), outside area, double hot plate (did not use) and microwave. You can drive you car up right next to the unit, have your own outside area and can easily walk to the...

Brent, the owner, and his Mum came by on our last day to introduce themselves and to see if we needed anything. Brent jokes that he has "the cleanliness disease" and it shows - our rental, "The Deck", was spotlessly clean. It's about 25 min from Fortescue Bay and Port Arthur, 15 minutes from the Eaglehawk Neck Dive Center and...

We stayed here overnight on the day we had planned to visit Port Arthur, and I had added a comment when booking that we would be passing through relatively early (~10am) on our way or else would only be back late in the evening after our Ghost Tour. The owners Brent & Lyn very kindly texted me in the morning...

My partner and i recently stayed in the skippers studio and loved it. Perfect overnight accomodation for our quick stay. Our room was immaculately clean and bed was warm and comfortable. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Brent and Lyn who were more than welcoming. Thank you!

Thank you Brent & Lyn from the moment we booked on line your service was second to none with an immediate response followed by directions on how to get there and tips on where to stop to stock up with supplies.

Amazingly clean rooms with everything you need. Bed was very comfy and we had a good nights sleep. Close to port Arthur historic sight so we did the ghost tour then went back to the sight easily the next day. We arrived late so there was a sign outside with my name for us to find our room easier.

We really loved this place. When we arrived there was a lovely sign welcoming us and pointing us to our unit. The unit was so clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners were lovely people, very friendly and helpful, and obviously take great pride and care in making sure everything is perfect - and it was! The unit was located...

We spent one night in Skippers, the self contained unit for a couple. It was well appointed (including an outside barbecue) and very clean. As well, the easy access to the Bay and the gardens (fruit trees, shrubs and flowers) surrounding the units contributed to making this a most enjoyable, brief stay. The owners sent a text the day the...
