“THE best holiday home in Coles Bay bar none”

Pretty much the last house on the road before you get to the Visitor Information Centre (literally a 5 min walk). Huge, gorgeously appointed house with stunning attention to detail in the build, set-up and presentation. Spacious, airy, quiet, unbelieveable views, cool in hot summer, and a kitchen that wants for nothing. The owner is easy to deal with, prompt and courteous.

The in-house guestbook provides some good tips from previous guests - if you want a good laugh check out the entry from the poms who expect a "welcome" pack to include what amounts to a 5 course meal. The responses from guests who followed are equally hilarious.

But I digress, this is just a wonderful place and the best we have stayed in during our history of 20 years worth of annual trips to Tassie. You just can't wrong here - I can't recommend Freycinet Haven highly enough.

“an elegant house in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed for three days in Coles Bay at Freycinet Haven. It is a modern, well designed home. Our room had an ensuite and there was also a very large family bathroom with a bath and washing machine and dryer. There are three other bedrooms but the doors were locked as we didn't need them.
The kitchen was large and well equipped, and part of a very large dining/sitting room. There was also a balcony at the front, with a barbeque and seating, and a back deck.
The house has a lovely view of the Hazards through trees and is very quiet; all you can hear at night are the frogs in the nearby pond.
It is walking distance to the beach, and one night we walked into the one restaurant in town for dinner (excellent pizza and a good wine list).
Freycinet Haven was a very comfortable and quiet place to stay in an extremely beautiful part of Tasmania.

“Weatherproof!”
Reviewed 8 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Freycinet Haven is a lovely house, well appointed and furnished, cosy and comfortable. We stayed three nights and the weather was awful on one of the days - the house was weatherproof! We loved the views and the comforts and the heaters. We loved being able to buy relatively cheap local seafood and cook it in the fabulous kitchen. The stories in the guest book were most entertaining and it was obvious the owners have responded to requests. We had a beaut stay. We especially thanked the cleaners - it was spotless. WiFi would make it perfect!

“Luxury in our National Park”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Freycinet Haven in wel positioned at Coles Bay for a stay in this very popular National Park.The property is modern with top quality appliances.
Decks at the front and back ensure all day sun and the view to the hazards is beautiful.
The property is not cheap but is very good value for 2-3 couples.
All you need is food and wine for a relaxing break in this beautiful part of Tasmania.
Hope to use again in the future and highly recommended.
Only criticism, as with many properties in Australia, is that WiFi network is not available to stay in touch with emails.
Owners need to consider this as service that many travellers are now demanding. priority
