About Stanley

Stanley is an historic seaside village, surrounded by beautiful pristine beaches and was settled in 1826. It is predominately a fishing village, with the quaint homes and buildings nestled at the base of "The Nut", an iconic monolith rising 152 metres from the ocean, making this a quaint and unique township. To take a stroll along the pristine beaches revitalises the soul, and the sunrises and sunsets are magnificent.

There is such a lot to see and do in and around Stanley, with wildlife in abundance, including a Pengin rookery, the magical Tarkine, temperate rainforests and the wild west coast, seal cruises, river cruises, falls, historic homes and quaint shops and galleries to explore.

Stanley has a well stocked supermarket, post office, several churches, a pharmacy, a providore, a specialty chocolate and ice-cream shop and many other attractions.

The Seaquarium at the Stanley Wharf is also well worth a visit.

Cafes, Restaurants and Breakfast Bars

Stanley is renowned for its first class restaurants, cafes and breakfast bars, most of which are located just 20 - 100 metres from Ellie's Cottages. Many show-case our beautiful fresh produce, including fresh seafood, grass fed beef and prime lamb. The Stanley Hotel was host to Masterchef in 2010, and has won many bistro awards.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Ellie's studio apartment. It was right in the heart of town and close to walking tracks and great eating places. Linen and bedding where comfortable and luxurious. Little touches of candles and scented soaps really added to the experience. We enjoyed the back courtyard and being able to dry out our walking gear.

Our one night stay in Stanley

  • 5 of 5

Great location just of the main street of Stanley yet quiet at night and close to all cafes, restaurants, hotel, The Nut and beaches etc. The studio had everything we needed - was very clean, spacious and cosy and great attention to detail by the owner. Plenty off street parking.

We would definitely recommend staying here- wish we could have stayed longer!

We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay. The apartment was cosy, very clean and tidy. Will definitely stay at Ellie's should the opportunity to visit Stanley arise in the future. A washing machine in the apartment would be an extra value.

This was a quality apartment with all-mod -com.

It was within easy walking distance of facilities needed by self catering tourists,shops resturants etc and also the

chairlift to the Nut.It was to possible to

visit other key tourist events like the Arthur River boat trip.(Good as Strahan)

Summary: a very enjoyable stay over 2-3 days.

The accommodation was spacious, comfortable, very clean, elegant and well thought out. The studio was just below The Nut and great places to see. It was so close to the shops that my partner was able to zip to the cafe below in the morning and bring me a hot perfectly made coffee in our comfy bed - it doesn't get much better than that!

If you don't want to spend the extra money for a view and just want a home for the weekend or a week, I'd recommend Ellie's.

Car: recommended
Other Activities:

Beach and The Nut Chairlift

Stanley's icon is the NUT, a 152 meter high monolith, around which the town has been built, therefore the village of Stanley is quite unique. It has a chairlift to the summit, with absolutely glorious views for miles. Stanley is well known for its pristine water and beaches, as the village is set out on a 7km peninsula. The drive into the village when turning on to this peninsula is absolutely stunning. We have first class restaurants, lovely cafes and breakfast bars, unique shops and galleries. Wildlife is in abundance, with Tasmanian Devils, Little Penguins and Seal colonies.
