We had a wonderful stay last month at Hamptons on the Bay. The managers and staff were extremely helpful, including making coffee for us in the morning, treating us to some delicious oysters, and helping us to plan our time in the area. The cabins are very comfortable, and the views magnificent. While the internet doesn't reach the cabins, we...

This place was a highlight during our roundtrip of Tasmania. Views to die for, very clean and chic. We stayed over Christmas and while most couples preferred to take food to their cabin, we had beautiful oysters and Tassie wine on the lawn (lovely white table with chairs overlooking the Sea - we felt like we owned the place -...

We arrived at Hobart airport and drove straight up to check in at Hamptons. The owner greeted us and after emptying out the car we drove into Swansea for provisions. The cottage was clean, warm, bright and self contained. We had everything we needed for a relaxing retreat from the world for a couple of nights. The view was amazing...

Recently had a one night stay in the 2 bed cabin. The view from the main bedroom and the lounge room was amazing. Can't get anymore waterfront than this. The cabin came with everything needed and were extremely clean and modern. Bed was very comfortable and the service when entering the property was great. Close enough to Swansea to travel...

What a personal welcome you get here. The location is difficult to better. The rooms (like a small apartment) are very nicely furnished and have a great sea view. One of the owners (had only recently bought it) welcomed us and introduced us to the site manager. All very friendly and personal. No restaurant on site but we were offered...

Two nights was simply not enough! We wished we had booked for longer. Amazing uninterrupted ocean views and the location was perfect as central to so many attractions. The best place we've stayed in a long time and we've already booked to return in 2017!

Dear LMGC It is such a compliment when guests say they will return. Thanks very much. We agree with you that two nights is barely enough to appreciate the peace, tranquility, magnificent central location and ocean views. Unfortunately, many guests only come to that realisation once they're here and by then they've already booked the next place on the itinerary....

We spent 2 nights here and wished it was a week. Beautiful surroundings. The Manager was friendly and helpful. The cabin was fantastic with ocean views just 20 metres away. Definitely a great place to stay and inexpensive. We cannot rate this place highly enough. Out of this world.

Thanks Daryl, we are so pleased when our gusts have enjoyed their stay. Whilst the property is convenient for over-night stays, we really hope that our guests will want to stay longer as it really is a private and peaceful escape. We would love to have you visit us again and, if you call or email us directly, we'll look...

We had one night here and it was great. We booked a one bedroom cabin which was very cute and intimate. It had everything we needed as well as the most amazing views! Swansea is close by (10 min drive) so we headed there for both dinner and breakfast. Highly recommend if you are looking for a night away up...

Hi Leah T Thanks for your appreciation and recommendation. Whilst Swansea is just a 10 minute drive, we've added an in-house pantry which will provide fresh live oysters (with champers if you like), breakfast packs, cheese platters, East Coast wines and a selection of beer/craft beer and other snacks. Please come again.

A very well managed property, with very well done up interiors. Complete in itself. Amazing sound of the waves hitting the rocks. Only drawback which I felt is lack of any major network connection and Wi-Fi. Could be a blessing for some and a pain for some. The view is awesome. A tad bit expensive.

Dear Guest Thanks for your kind comments. We are very lucky to be so close to the water and to be able to see and hear the waves break from the cabins. We are always looking to improve the cabins and Wifi continues to be on the agenda. Whilst we are only 11km from Swansea, we are unable to easily...

Great cabin in stunning location. Everything you need for a retreat by the sea. Nothing better than being lulled to sleep by the sea. Good bed in tastefully decorated cabin. Excellent value. Only downside is you need to boil water to drink but owner provides free bottled water.

Hi Janet B We really appreciate it when our guests notice the uniqueness of our location on the coast. I've never taken the time to do the research, but there probably aren't that many places along Tassie's East Coast where all of the accommodation is built on cliffs less than 30m from the water's edge with 180 degree views of...
