“A perfect retreat away from the fast lane of city life!”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

As well as being in a very convenient yet peaceful location with a marvelous vista, this home is tastefully furnished, with quality treatment throughout, including appliances. Mon, the owner, made sure that my every need was met, and Sheree, who manages Moon River in Mon's absence, was friendly and most helpful. This truly is like a "home away from home!" Thank you Mon.

“Perfect in every way, views stunning, this is a place to sit and watch the world go by.”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

What an amazing place to unwind and relax. The views are magical. Monique is the most hospitable and kindest host you could want. She has thought of everything to make your stay memorable even down to lens cleaner for your glasses, you want for nothing, she is very obliging and will help where she can.
The location is within driving distance 15mins to little village with wonderful quirky shops to visit.
Loved our stay and we will be back next year.

Thank you Barbara, for your lovely compliments. It was a pleasure to be your host. So glad you enjoyed your recent stay and very happy we had all those little extras so often needed on a trip away from home! If you had stayed this week you might have needed the Wellington boots we also provide!!

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Loved this Retreat. Really was a home away from home as nothing as been forgotten. Comfortable and warm with everything you could possibly need including about twenty different types of tea and coffee. Thanks to the owner Monique who gave us plenty of information on where to go to see Tasmania at its best. Wonderful hot shower, beautiful bed and great linens. I'll be back!

“Wow a hidden gem”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is easy to get to, secluded but also an easy drive from Cygnet. Mon is a fabulous host nothing is too much trouble. The views are panoramic and breathtaking. Everything you need is here. We have never stayed at a place where so much thought has been put into what a guest might need. If you want a stress free easy holiday this is the place to stay.
