“So much heart and soul has gone into creating this warm and inviting space, super clean and comfy. There’s so many thoughtful touches making this place extra special. Definitely the most generous provisions we’ve ever experienced in an Airbnb anywhere. Perfect place to stay with little ones (baby gear and toys provided). Ours loved exploring the gardens, and feeding the alpacas, sheep, and pony. Linda and Yanni are such lovely and accomodating hosts. They provide a wealth of local information, we enjoyed visiting Mt Field National Park, a lunch on the River at the Possum Shed Cafe, and the Westerway Berry Farm. Could not recommend more highly, we’ll definitely be back.”

“This place is magical and full of good vibes. We stayed here just for a night on our way to Mount Field National Park (which is only 10 min away) and absolutely enjoyed our time. The king suite has everything one may need - great bed and shower, lot of books and garden sit out areas and the sunny verandah. We were immediately energized after a long drive. The entire farm is lovely, you can walk till the ponds and meet the alpacas, dogs and 🐈 on the premises.. the garden was in full bloom when we arrived and the beauty and peace was topped by Jenifa’s warm and friendly hospitality. We carried food supplies and the kitchen is perfect to make your own breakfast/ dinner if you chose to. Highly recommended!!”

“We were travelling at an "interesting" time. This little cottage was the perfect place to be "stuck". With all parks, walks and almost everything else shut due to the Corona virus, we spent a lot of time "at home" and it was just beautiful . Very comfortable and with everything you need. Even just walking along the river or the road at least made us feel like we were having a lovely holiday. Rob's level of communication and general sense of caring was fantastic. Thank you. We feel like we have "unfinished business" in Tasmania and when this thing is behind us, we"ll be back .”
