“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is extremely comfortable, quiet, yet a good base
for visiting many areas of southern Tasmania this is the best we have seen. Judy responded enthusiastically to all our needs. Nearby supermarket excellent, particularly for prepared foods. Highly recommended.

“Great place to unwind and relax.”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Beautiful part of the world. Wonderful view and very private. Weather conditions change quickly - from hot and sunny to cold windy and wet - but stil breathtaking views no matter what conditions. All food provided was fresh and/or homemade which was a lovely touch - especially the banana bread. 20-25 min drive from Hobart but a lovely drive. Plenty of nearby restaurants to eat. Definitely would go back and stay there.

“If you are visiting Hobart this is THE place to stay”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My partner and I spent three nights at The Boat Shed. We didnt want to leave! The location is spectacular and the accommodation equally so. Everything about this place is special. It feels so comfortable, cosy and welcoming. Judy has thought of everything, right down to the homemade bread. We couldnt believe the wonderful breakfast provisions. Everything had been provided. If youre looking for a secluded, restful and romantic hideaway then look no further. Its the perfect spot to while away days on end or to use as a base to explore this wonderful part of Tasmania. You cannot possibly be disappointed...except having to leave. We will certainly be back

“Wondrful place to stay”

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a great 9 day stay at the Boatshed. Everything was really well thought out and Judy does a wonderful job to make your stay a treat. All the good things for breakfast provided and a freshly baked cake to make you even more welcome. All this was replenished mid-stay to make sure we didn't starve! The view out over the bay is amazing and never disappoints, no matter the weather.
Although out in the country, it is a central spot, an easy drive into Hobart over the Tasman bridge or north to Richmond or East over to Sorrel or Port Arthur.Nothing is very far away.
We found that the meals at South Arm RSL are worth the 10 minute trip for those who don't want to cook dinner, great food at great prices and supporting the locals.
