This place is an absolute treasure as are the hosts Rosalind and Carl. The house is a stunning weatherboard built in 1876 and although they have repaired and renovated parts of it the original theme is retained. We were greeted with Latte and a pot of Tea and home-made brownies. The open fire was on in the main lounge and...

Thanks for the review. And thanks for keeping me entertained with amazing singing and piano playing. It's people like you that make B&B really fun.

When we scheduled four days in Tasmania during a one month trip to Australia, I was worried about hitting bad weather (it was July, so winter, and there was strong possibility of being rained in the whole time). It was chilly but we had sunny and clear days and the house was cozy and warm. Carl and Roz made fires...

A pleasant surprise with a beautiful period house with character and charm with warm hospitable hosts. Sitting by the fireside at night with engaging repartee with other guests something very different, Rosalyn was especially nice looking after my wife's GF requirements

A beautifully maintained rustic early Tasmnian timber mansion has been beautifuly preserved by the hosts. We had th attic all to ourselves, so we did nothav to share the upstairs bathroom which onl has very basic facilities. The downstairs shared bathroom is outside and was rather dirty. The heavenly breakfast compensated us for this negative. At $130 per night/double a...

Sorry about the outside bathroom, it is usually only used when we come back from the beach. You were late additions so we put you upstairs and as you mention, the upstairs bathroom is basic. Next time we will give you one of the downstairs rooms. I love the attic rooms though.

Carl & Roslyn have themselves a real gem here. They are friendly, welcoming hosts to what is a gorgeously renovated antique house by the sea. Beautiful facilities and yummy breakfast! Great meal at the Southermost pub in Australia up the road.

Great location if you want to explore the southern tip of Tasmania. This is the last accommodation before the tip unless you want to get the tent out :) Room and food were excellent and hosts Carl and Ros very knowledgeable about this wonderful part of Tasmania.

Thanks for the great review. I have only just worked out how to respond! We like our address- go to the end of the road and we are the last on the right! It's cheating of course, there is a dirt road going further south to Cockle Creek but we are at the southern end of the highway in Australia.

Friendly hosts Carl and Ros, lovely cooked breakfast, peaceful location, comfortable bed. Museum like interesting historic items and driftwood paintings by local artist. Beach and jetty close by for those who like to fish and close to caves and forest walks. What more could you ask for?

We thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely Friday afternoon drive from Hobart to Southport, to be met with a cosy fire, a lovely meal and a very warm welcome. On Saturday we established that the best coffee around was in fact at Jetty house itself, but we enjoyed visiting the Ida Bay railway and doing a bit of fly fishing here and...

Thanks for the lovely review. It's true that booking ahead is a good idea during peak times, but the beauty of travelling in Tassie at other times is that you can meander and discover your own gems. Carl's advice is to book your first night or two then pick up a weather map and plan out the next few days....
