About this listing

We love sharing our bush home and our simple healthy lifestyle, and showing people the good things Tasmania has to offer. We live in a stone and timber house on 55 acres of Wildlife Reserve, only 7 klm from Deloraine - on the way to Cradle Mountain, and 1/2 an hour from the Devonport ferry.

The space

We are only 7 minutes up a country road from Deloraine, and central to the north of Tasmania with both Launceston and Devonport 45 minutes away. Deloraine is a beautiful town, and the gateway to some good bushwalking. Cradle Mountain is a 1 hour 45 minutes country drive from here. We have the woodfire going in winter, cosy and warm.

The guest room is warm and light, north facing with French doors to outside, next to a country kitchen. You are welcome to use the kitchen or barbecue to cook meals yourself. We have a three person Far Infrared sauna available for a small fee, towels for sauna and shower (or hot bath) are supplied. A TV is provided with many movies for guests to watch in bed at night.

We love a good conversation, we love people. But we also respect people's need for privacy, and the need to relax and enjoy the quiet. We also offer alternative health therapies - detox Far Infrared saunas, healthy eating programs/weight loss, and Therapeutic Essential Oil massages.

We are 'alternative' in our lifestyle, so we don't have a microwave or a dishwasher, and are fairly down to earth and natural. We do love our uncomplicated life here, and love to share what we have with our guests - and do enjoy hearing their stories and ideas on life in return.

This whole area has a great community spirit, with a large population of artists and craft people living locally. Deloraine is a lovely place to spend some time, but is not far to Cradle Mountain and the Marakoopa Caves or other day trips. There are lots of short day walks in the area and interesting places to visit.

This is also a chemical free household, suitable for those with allergies or chemical sensitivities etc; we drink and shower in Tasmanian rainwater (no fluoride or chlorine) and use no chemicals to clean, and our food is mainly organic local produce. We hope you will come and enjoy our simple 'down to Earth' lifestyle.

Guest access

Our guest room is spacious and light, the kitchen is available to use for cooking meals and the dining room for eating or just relaxing. The lounge room is available to use, having a big TV and the wood fire is quite cosy. The bathroom is shared with us. The grounds outside with seating and BBQ area are for general use.

Interaction with guests

We are always around and can help with planning out your visits to local attractions. We are both qualified in doTERRA Aromatouch therapeutic Essential Oil massages. We offer a 45 minute oils massages (Aromatouch Technique) for $45 - very relaxing and healthy.

Very nice hosts, we enjoyed getting to know them! The breakfast was really good with a lot of self made things! The house is very nice and perfect for relaxing! Just one little minus: The mattress of the sleeping couch was a bit uncomfortable, the bed was very comfortable tho.

Response from Matt And Tanya:
It was really nice having you four too. It was so good to see you relaxing around the fire at night. I will get a softer mattress for the sleeping couch, I do want all my guests to be comfortable. All the best for your future, Matt and Tanya.

Great place to stay. The hosts, Matt & Tanya, are very friendly and laid back. Their place is in the middle of the bush, but only a 7 minute drive away from "downtown" Deloraine. They gave us some good alternatives for Cradle Mountain, since the weather there was quote could and very wet.
Matt And Tanya User ProfileMatt And Tanya is a superhost.
Response from Matt And Tanya:
It was great having you and Ben too Patrick, I really hope you get some good weather now for the rest of your trip before you head home. Hope to see you next time you are in Aus :-) Cheers, Matt and Tanya.

We both appreciate the good life that Tasmania has to offer, and love the peace and quiet of the bush. We are into alternative health and well being, and offer a sanctuary for the 'weary traveler' or those that are in need of a place to escape from the pressures of everyday life. We are both qualified in the doTERRA AromaTouch technique, an essential oil application/massage, very therapeutic and relaxing. We love people and the exchange of ideas, and welcome those with alternate views on health, life and this amazing world we live in.
