Stayed at the Boat House recently, couldn't recommend it more. Beautifully laid out, supremely quiet and serene, fabulous views across the water to Dover. The owners have done an outstanding job with this place. Our friends stayed at the Cape House and loved it as much as we did. It really is as good as it gets. Thank you so...

So relaxing and remote. Went for a girls weekend away to escape everyday life and relax. Exactly what this place offers. The animal night life is amazing and the bush walks are awesome. Highly recommend this place if you need the time out. 1 hour's drive from Hobart.

The Boathouse We were lucky enough to stay at the The Boathouse on the Peninsula Experience for 2 nights in June. The newly built Boathouse is luxury to the max. From the moment we arrived, with the heating on and music playing, we knew we'd found somewhere special. The interiors are absolutely stunning, everything is perfectly finished and has been...

We absolutely loved this property. I traveled with three close mates, all from the UK who were looking for a uniquely Australian experience in a remote part of our great continent. It delivered that in spades, and with so much privacy. The combination of bushland, hills, bay inlets and 360 degree views is just amazing. The house was beautifully appointed...

We stayed here as a couple for a weekend, just to get away for some quiet time, and it really is the perfect place to do that. There isn't another house anywhere close so you really feel far away from it all. The house itself is beautiful and large, 6 people could easily stay here without getting in each other's...

We had the pleasure to experience this tranquil, serene and beautiful place on earth! We loved every bit of our stay: the kitchen, the walking tracks, especially the ones that lead to amazing picnic tables at sunset time and of course the spa:) If you're thinking about coming here, just do it! You won't regret it! We definitely consider coming...

We spent 5 nights at The Peninsula, going through the King Kong red gate was the first experience and the drive up to the house was amazing and then we saw the view. We went to Tasmania for 20 nights and stayed at 4 lodges on each of the coasts and this was by far all of our favourite. The...

Arriving at the big red gates you know you are in for something special. The driveway meanders through bush before opening up to your own little piece of paradise.

The perfect get away: secluded, romantic, clean and fresh. We could not fault anything. We would recommend a visit to the fishing village. The best oysters every and so very fresh. ..........................................................................................................................................................
