We had a wonderful stay. It is a beautiful secluded location, perfect to explore both Hobart and the Tasman Peninsula. We enjoyed Jill's bread and the local fresh produce and would be keen to stay again.

My personal favourite Tasmanian accommodation. My partner and I were welcomed to Jill's Marion Bay retreat with home baked multi-grain bread, homemade jams and fresh milk from one of the locals. Beautiful views overlooking the bay from our bedroom window. Cannot thank Jill enough for her hospitality.

Beautiful intimate cabin in the woods. Old fashion hospitality, everything provided even got a go in the outdoor fire tub. Recommend this place to anyone who wants to explore Tasmania outside the city. Easy access to beaches and walks. Jill and Ron are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
