A three night stay at Alice’s by the Sea On arrival at Tasmania we wanted somewhere to base ourselves for the first few days. Alice’s was clean, quirky and very reasonably priced. It was very close to the water at the entrance of the river... you knew when the Spirit was coming or going as you felt it! You just...

This was an excellent stay the 2 bedroom apartment was great but only one toilet, the price for the appartment was exceptional.Alice was a very nice person and made us feel very welcome. Car is needed to get into the centre of Devonport including the ferry.

This property is in a great location. We had a party of 10 & it was quiet spacious. Its down fall was very outdated needed new linen floor covering seen better days, No laundry facilities & only one bathroom makes it difficult for 10 people.

Could not rate this highly enough, we had a late need for accommodation and Alice was great to deal with. Had the upstairs rooms for our family at a very reasonable rate. Every part of the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Not a bad thing we could say. Great location and wonderful all round.

A group of 5 of us descended onto Devonport for a wedding. After two flights for some of us to get here, it was lovely to arrive at such a spacious, neat and well provisioned place. (Upstairs) The view is lovely, and breakfast on the balcony is a must. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and there is enough room for...

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. Every thing you could want for a stay. Clean and comfortable and shower awesome - great water flow and much roomier than a motel. No fuss booking and transaction. Complete privacy and undercover free parking. Has full size fridge, iron, ironing board, hairdryer and plenty of hanging space and hangers.

What a fabulous place. We rented the 4 bedroom "house" upstairs and watched the ferries and other boats coming and going. Overlooked a beatiful beach which was so peaceful and quiet. To top it off - the owner/manager could not have been more helpful. Just a short car ride into the city of Devonport. We will definitely be back !...

After two weeks driving around Tasmania we found the perfect accommodation. The only regret was we were only there for one night. Fantastic facilities, quiet location, walk along the beach across the road. The the most important things? Clean, comfortable bed, good shower, and tv reception and they were all superb! The room is very well decorated and the comfortable...

The one bedroom studio apartment is nice enough. It's clean, the towels are lovely and soft. There was a small (200ml) carton of milk in the fridge, and coffee and tea. (Which we don't drink, but most people do.) The kitchen had pretty much everything you would need. Alice was friendly. Contrary to the category this property is put under...

The whole experience of staying at Alice's Beside the Sea was like staying with close family. When we arrived our name was on the door welcoming us. Alice is a lovely lady who added to that welcome feeling. We had a 2 bedroom unit downstairs which was comfortable, quiet and had everything we required. The location is lovely, right on...
