“The Jetty House , an experience in itself , an honour to be there .”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

We went to Tasmania to experience the landscape , I was not expecting our accommodation to be a memorable experience in itself . The house is old and very beautiful , surrounded by lovely garden , I felt honoured to be there .
The decor combines a beach and country feel with historic detail , struck a personal note with me as my mum has very similar style . The bed we slept in was wonderfully big and comfy after a hard days bush walking and I later found out the frame was hand made by the owner .
The service was lovely , our host was very gracious and shared some useful local knowledge.
This may sound a silly and trivial detail but , the APPLE MUSELI was to die for .
The Jetty House was just a lovely place to be .

Belated thanks for the lovely feedback. The apple muesli recipe (and the chocolate brownie and sourdough bread recipes) are on the "Friends of Jetty House" facebook page.

Our stay at the Jetty House was relaxing and we received a lot of personal attention from the lovely owners. The guesthouse is set in a stunning garden which is fun to explore, and is a good base to explore the whole South from. The breakfasts were amazing too.

This is a classic 1870's Tassie house with big verandahs and loads of character. The couple that own it (Ros and Carl) are very friendly and hospitable. The rooms are very much kept in the character of the period with superb, warm and comfortable (new) huon pine beds. There are two sitting rooms. The smaller one has a large log fire and comfy armchairs and tables. Breakfast was first class for quality and variety, especially the apple (when in season) muesli. When we visited it was one of the coldest periods of the year, so the room heating (apart from the log fire sitting room) struggled a bit (hardly any accommodation in Tasmania has central heating as Tasmanian folk are a pretty hardy bunch - like NZ South Islanders), but this only a small negative point really. There's an excellent selection of books on D'Entrecasteaux which are a good resource if you're planning on exploring the local area.

Peaceful surrounds. Ros has the talent to know when to socialise with guests and when to give them their space - perfectly. Friendly atmosphere, great food. We both fell asleep in front if the open fire with the patter of the rain on the roof...home away from home.

Room Tip: Any room - just turn on the oil heater the moment you get in...and leave it on.

We stayed with Ros and Carl April 2011. The weather was a little bleak, which made it wonderful for fireside conversations and reading. The breakfasts made by Ros are generous and yummy and the pub up the road is friendly and serves great food. The Jetty House is an excellent place to base yourself to explore the southern most coast of Tassie with lots of walk trails nearby. It was one of our favorite stays in Tasmania. Kerrie and Mark WA

Thanks so much to Ros for spending so much time with us around the open fireside, having a chat. You have both put in so much hard work already to this fabulous property, we are in awe of all you've done. The gardens and house look so pretty from the road and the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you at Southport and suggest to all that it's not too far to go in Southern Tasmania. It was even beautiful when it was raining heavily. The nearby Hastings thermal springs and caves make this spot well worth visiting, however the close proximity to the beach is a real bonus too. Thanks again Ros and Carl, regards, Lea and Rod.
