Why Anne Thompson chose Huon Valley

The most beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Anchorage! I wished we could have stayed longer. My husband and I and our 7 month old stayed for 2 nights for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We just wanted to get away for a few days and relax and this was the perfect spot to do it. A short drive to the Tahune Airwalk, lots of food options close by and the most magnificent view of the Huon Valley from the apartment. Lovely hosts and accommodation. Would definitely stay again!

A nice house in a great location, beautiful surrounding by the river, comfortable and spacious, very well maintained( everything works), self-contained with everything you will need and not least great hosts in Rob and Anne. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Cheryl & Bob Lovely to have you and we will be waiting for your return. Glad to hear that your stay did not disappoint, and that you relaxed - good to hear about the workshop and that Bob found his way back from the 'far, far south' safely.

Fabulous property with exceptional views...

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property and equally lovely landlords who live in the private access and amenities lower level were truly a fabulous combination. The owner and the guest's unit are totally separate and private. We wanted to nothing during our six week stay. Beautiful sweeping view of the Huon River and its only a short drive to a white sand beach on the ocean. All amenities were available and working perfectly during our stay. We both can't recommend this property more for short or long stays in this special location.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on this website do not do this place justice. It is absolutely stunning, by far the best place we stayed at whilst traveling through Tasmania. The view from the main bedroom is to die for. The apartment is set out very comfortably, with all the amenities that you would require, and with plenty of room to move around.
