Gaylene, Tasmania:

Thanks for sharing this lovely cottage, for travelers. So comfy and welcoming. Fabulous breakfasts too. Excellent base location for trips around Southern Tasmania. Thanks again, Gaylene. Ps: The Aurora Australis was elusive this time. I did capture a couple of “spooky” shed/cloud night shots. Sveva’s little touches (eg. flowers) were lovely. January 2015.

Thank you so much for the lovely welcome and cottage. We felt so much at home and wished we were staying longer. The views and breakfast were fantastic, we also enjoyed meeting the children, pony and Nelson! Thanks again, love. January 2015.

Brice and Judith, New Zealand:

To Sveva and Michael. We got the feeling you wanted this place to be an oasis of peace for us and so it turned out to be. We relaxed, let go after the busyness of preparing to leave, 3 flights to get here, and finding our way around. We lazed on the sunny verandah with a good coffee, enjoyed the wonderful music on Concert FM and drove a leisurely pace around the stunning countryside. And then there was the excitement of opening the box to see what you had prepared for our breakfast. Thank you very much for a delightful stay. November 2014

Natalie, Victoria:

Thank you Sveva, Michael, Christian, Finn and Sofia, we will never forget our time here in this little piece of Paradise. It’s been a truly heart warming experience. Best wishes and Warm Regards. November 2014

Maz and Greg:

Thank you Sveva and Michael for providing a little piece of paradise! The cottage is adorable and the surrounding level is breathtaking. Such a peaceful way to end an amazing holiday in Tassie! And getting to meet your children + animals was a bonus! Having Rex (the kitten) jump into the boot of the car when we first arrived, and Nelson (the puppy) visiting us randomly at the cottage plus watching Milo (the pony) + feeding him apples :-) Can’t get better than that! Hope to come back + visit you again! October 2014
