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.

Magnificent property

  • 5 of 5

To say we enjoyed our stay at Anchorage is an understatement, we really struggled to leave. A wonderful property on the most divine block of land over looking the stunning Huon River. It was the little extras that made it even more special, from the fresh eggs & apples that Anne & Rob so kindly provided to the most comfortable beds & pillows to ensure a blissful sleep. And the pool was a total hit with the kids.

The only improvements I would suggest & these are rather trivial I guess, would be better hot water pressure in the showers. It trickles down & as soon as the cold is turned on even slightly, it is freezing. Also a hip height rail on the stairs of the pool would be fantastic. I have bad hip problems & was really looking forward to swimming but I couldn't get in safely so unfortunately had to miss out.

Other than that, it truly is a great place to relax & unwind from the stresses of life or to base yourself for an unforgettable Huontrail experience. We will most definitely be coming back.

Thanks again Anne & Rob!

Owner's Response: Thanks Emma, Had I known about the shower pressure I would have had it looked at. So sorry that you experienced this. Also the pool rail - taken note and will endeavour to have one fitted by the time you visit again. Thanks for the feedback. Anne
