Wow.. Very impressed with the Cove. From arrival to departure this place was a gem. Big fresh towels daily, great beds, underfloor and towel rails heated amazing, fresh cooked local produce breakfast included. Shirley and Dennis great well informed helpful hosts. 2 minutes to ferry, much better value than staying on Bruny Island.

A classical, contemporary B & B in Tasmania's gorgeous Kettering, a small fishing village with loads of coastal charm on the D'Entrecasteaux Channel south of Hobart. The location overlooks the water and boats in the Cove. The facility is more like that of a five star Hotel; one feels transported to another world. Hosts, Shirley and Dennis are professional and...
