Have stayed at the same location twice as I love the location , its only a short drive from Hobart and close to the airport, that together with it being very quite and in a rural setting. Bruce and Clarissa have recently built five new chalet type dwellings over looking the Cambridge area and out towards Barilla Bay . These chalets have everything , lounge and kitchen with magnificent views. Kitchen is fully equipped as is the laundry . The chalets are luxurious with no expense spared and designed to ensure guests enjoy ultimate comfort with unsurpassed views. Highly recommend.

What a beautiful spot! We arrived in the night, and the cabin was clean and cozy on a cold night. The next morning we enjoyed the beautiful views and the cute animals. Clarissa kindly brought us with her as she fed the animals too, and our kids really enjoyed patting the horses and sheep in particular. Thank you–it was a very pleasant little farmstay for our family!

Vivien Chou

Nice place with two bedrooms and a nice kitchen! Also, there are horses, lambs, parrots, and a dog living just beside the room. It’s a perfect place to enjoy the beauty of nature with your family!
