About this listing
We love to share our bush home and our simple healthy lifestyle, and show people the good things Tasmania has to offer. We live in a stone and timber house on 55 acres of Wildlife Reserve, yet only 7 klm from Deloraine.
We are only 7 minutes up a country road from Deloraine, and central to the north of Tassie with both Launceston and Devonport 45 minutes away. Deloraine is a beautiful town, and the gateway to the Great Lakes (30 mins) for good trout fishing and bushwalking. Cradle Mountain is a 1 hour 45 minutes country drive from here.
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.
We love a good conversation, as we love people. (BlackMilk Sharkies are welcome) 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 also has bus tours to Cradle Mountain and the Marakoopa Caves and 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.
As we are not smokers ourselves we don't want to inconvenience smokers, so we prefer to be 'smoke free'. We are ok with pets, we have plenty of space for them to run. Pets are family too.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at their wonderful and cozy house. Matt and Tanya were such lovely hosts and it was a pleasure to chat with them and get to know more about them. All the best for your road trip in July!
We really enjoyed taking a break from travel and relaxing at the stone house in the woods. The property is beautiful and the trail up onto the hill at the back of the property provided a peaceful vista to relive the sole.
We also, of course, enjoyed the fresh baked bread and breakfast.
Thanks Dina, it's good to see people use our place to just relax and find a bit of peace and a rest from travelling. I loved the exchange of ideas too with you and Eric. We won't forget you guys in a hurry.
We wish you peace and prosperity in your journey. Matt and Tanya.
We had a lovely night stay at this beautiful property. Worth staying an extra night as it is within an easy drive of many great sight-seeing destinations. Matt and Tanya were wonderful and engaging hosts, full of knowledge about healthy living. Instant booking was much appreciated.
We had one of the best stays at this place. It was very peaceful & comfy. Matt & Tanya looked after us well.
Matt and Tanya are wonderful hosts and were more than happy to help us out with advice on activities etc. They have a lovely place with a lot of character. The room was very spacious, comfy bed. Fell in love with their kitchen and bathroom (both shared). Was able to prepare my food for the Overland Track in their kitchen (thanks for your patience Matt & Tanya). Had some freshly baked bread for breakfast. Yum! Surroundings are beautiful and peaceful, just outside of Deloraine. Wish we could have stayed for more than 1 night!
A real pleasure - tranquil bush setting with lots of local wildlife … Matt & Tanya were both very informative & accommodating hosts !
A classic example of the broad range of Air Bnb experiences available !
It was a pleasure having you both stay here Stephan. Our aim is to provide a relaxing and friendly environment, glad we could provide that for you. Yes, we now have the wood fire going 24/7 so the towels can hang there to stay dry fresh. We now have a coat hanger in a suitable place too. I do appreciated the suggestions.
Take care you guys, Matt and Tanya.
Matt and Tanya were an absolute pleasure to meet and get to know just a little about - we had a great time talking with them and thoroughly enjoyed our space in their home that was pretty and comfortable and very cosy for us being not so used to chilly weather! It's a pity we couldn't stay longer and we wish them all the best for a safe and warm winter... Thank you again :)
Thanks Elly, we love hearing that people enjoyed their stay here. Yes it is cooling down now and we're now into 'winter mode' with the wood fire going every day. It was good having you and your family here and hope to see you again.
Take care, Matt and Tanya.

About the Host, 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 AromoTouch 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.
