Very comfortable property

  • 4 of 5

Pettit Cottage was lovely. It's very clean and the hosts provide lots of little extra touches to make for an enjoyable stay. It is ideal for families. Swansea is in a central location on the east coast of Tasmania but you do need a car to see the surrounding attractions. My friend and I felt very much at home in the cottage.

Owner's Response: So glad you felt at home at Pettit Cottage. I am sorry I didnt get to meet you - family and farm pressures prevented this. What a lovely way to celebrate your birthdays with a trip such as this.

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Pettit Cottage which is very centrally located to shops, cafes and lovely walks. It is located on a corner of the main road but was not noisy at all. As we had been travelling for days we were disappointed that there was not a clothes dryer in the house which is unusual these days. We managed but with some difficulty. The Cottage was spotless and we appreciated the several welcoming touches. Thank you Pat.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

An extremely comfortable cottage that is well situated to conveniences. It is well equipped with lots of personal touches that make it a special place. Pat is an extremely thoughtful host, even left us some Port as well as some homemade cookies. We had some bad weather during our stay but the comfortable stay made up for this.

Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Pettit Cottage at the end of our nine day holiday in Tasmania. Delighted, with this pretty little home from home. Everything was thought of, plenty of bedding, blankets, towels, warm and cosy with heaters, wood fire and electric blankets. The house was clean, so comfortable with extra touches like flowers and little home cooked biscuits. Also central to town, beach and great fish and chip shop!

Nothing to fault at all!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was full of warmth and the Tasmanian welcome with Port and fresh fruit and fresh flowers, an awesome fireplace ready for the match, heaps of room and brilliantly positioned in the middle of the town. Simply great value for 4 of us staying there - a great barbecue area out the back, and 2 bathrooms, what more could you want!

Lovely Cottage. Close to all facilities

  • 4 of 5

Great little cottage, very clean & comfortable. All amenities available, close by (restaurants & local shops). Extra touches provided for us to made us feel very welcome. A little noisy in the morning as it is on the main street.
