Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property to stay in. The views were amazing, the house was very comfortable and functional and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The fact that is pet friendly was a bonus. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips and it truly was a home away from home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to go back there again myself.

Beautiful little gem

  • 5 of 5

Gypsy's Rest really made our trip special. We visited Tasmania on short notice and under difficult circumstances but the holiday home brought comfort and peace when we needed it. The view is really special from both the main bedroom, the living area and the decking, the courtyard provides an excellent windbreak to enjoy meals, the decking is beautiful and the extra studio is very peaceful with a great view of the bay. The customer service was great and very helpful. There was an awesome selection of teas provided and all the utensils you could need. The decor is all pretty awesome and there are some beautiful pieces around the property.

The only critique i can provide is that the water pump next to second bedroom was quite loud particularly in the mornings but it really wasn't a big issue for us. The house is cosy and would shine as a retreat for a couple.

Overall, having a beautiful space to lay our heads and a beautiful view to wake up to made a big difference for us and we greatly appreciate it.

Holiday haven!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing stay and Gypsys rest was my favourite pet friendly stay while in Tassie. It was nice to have somewhere safe for the fur-babies while out exploring and was surprised how easy it was to visit Hobart and Port Arthur; but it was extra special to spend time with everyone just chilling out and enjoying that view! Boys fished, while I relaxed on the deck!

perfect holiday destination and will be back one day!

We recently stayed a Gypsy's rest with my brother and his girlfriend for three nights and we all had such a great time. The home has a really relaxing feel with great views. We spent alot of our time on the deck (soaking in the view) which has a great day bed and outdoor setting. Only a stones throw away (literally...we tried) from the deck is the water front, and your met with cute boat shacks and crystal clear water. The owners were great to communicate with and seem like really genuine people. Its a great distance from Hobart, far enough away to have a small beachy town feel but not to far to drive in and have a day in Hobart. Highly recommend checking it out :)

Owner's Response: Hi Stuart, Thank you so much for your review! It is great to hear how much guests enjoy there stay @ Gypsy's Rest. It is a special little spot and very protected in that particular bay (Gypsy Bay). We are always trying to improve Gypsy's Rest and have a lot in store for this holiday house over the next year or so, to make it even better! We look forward to you coming back to enjoy another break! All the best. Verina :)
