We stayed over the Australia Day long weekend in the 'Pelican' cabin. The cabin itself was immaculate, very well laid out and had a beautiful view from the living/dining room and the deck. We had breakfast on the deck both mornings, enjoying the scenery and we also took lovely long walks along the beach (it was pristine and we didn't...

Hi Justin and Joice, Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Pelican nature cabin. The Tarkine Tour is very interesting and is also very comfortable on the gravel tracks, in our new luxury 4WD vehicle. We have reduced the tour to a half day as this enables guests to participate in other activities,...

Beachside Retreat is tucked carefully into the sand dunes above beautiful West Inlet and only a few kilometres from the little township of Stanley. The four cabins are completely private from each other and all with their own unique character. Everything you could need for a peaceful 'retreat' but with all mod cons. There is a nature trail that winds...

Hi SusyQ, Thank you for your recent review. Our environmental architect designed the cabins so that each one is different in style and completely private from the next one. If you are looking for a retreat we do our best to make it happen. We have now added 3 more hens to our orchard, after the spotted quolls reduced our...

I loved to stay at this place. It is so relaxing to sit on the little terrace and look at the wonderfull beach. The cabins furniture is very nice and well planed, the cabin itself fits perfectly to the landscape. I do recommend to stay at Beachside Retreat.

Hi Margarete, Thank you for your review. We hope that you had a safe journey home to Austria after your relaxing stay here. We employed an environmental architect to design the cabins so that they fitted perfectly within the natural setting and we think that she came up with an amazing result. It was lovely to meet you both. Maybe...

Many thanks again, Janette, for the continued fine hospitality manifest at your Beachside Retreat at West Inlet. We've yet to experience the so-called Tassie weather in the shadow of The Nut -- it always been great for those few days of our visits. And my highest praise, on this our fourth visit, for the surprise of a genuine lap pool,...

The location alongside West Inlet is wonderful with a safe tranquil beach a place for enjoyable walks in the sand, oysters to pluck from the rocks, fish to catch if you so desire and eagles and hawks circling above the dunes.

Hi KenB, We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Pelican, our latest cabin overlooking the sea. The view of West Inlet is superb from the floor to ceiling windows and Pelican has possibly the best water view of all the four cabins.

Sandpiper cabin right on the sand dunes was perfectly located, with sparkling water views and everything needed provided in the cabin. A lovely deck to sit outside and admire the view was just perfect.

Hi Jampot666, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sandpiper is always a popular choice with it's views along the beach and very private deck area. We try to provide all amenities for guests to self-cater as most do not want to eat out every night. Traffic noise is never a problem staying on a rural property,...

Hi Janet W, Thank you for your much appreciated review. We have tried to create something unique here, in the construction of the cabins and the way they fit into and complement the environment.

Hi Katrin F, Thank you for writing a review. The secluded location here makes for relaxing downtime, with the wildlife never very far away, especially at dusk. All the windows of each cabin overlook the deserted beach, giving a feeling of isolation and solitude, just right for enjoying a peaceful, well-earned getaway.

Accommodation accessible for people in wheelchairs but definitely not wheelchair friendly.
