Very relaxing & good value

  • 4 of 5

A lovely property in a great location. Pretty much everything you could wish for (although an ironing board wouldn't go astray) and a lovely homely feel. The steep stone walkway is a bit tricky to navigate. Great fire which we delighted in using, even though it was warm outside and we thoroughly enjoyed just sitting on the verandah and enjoying the serenity. Thank you

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a very peaceful and comfortable stay in this delightful beach shack. We loved the comfort of the stretch- out lounge and the warm and cosy beds. We never tired of that fantastic ever-changing view of the bay that captured us from the minute we walked into the house. The wall of windows allowed the feeling of lightness. The generosity of the owner provided extras such as pantry goods and washing machine. We felt quite at home. Around every corner on our drives we came across more enchanting bays. What a stunning area of Tasmania. A unique holiday in a truly beautiful area we will never forget. Hope to come back again .

Beautiful shack

  • 5 of 5

What a delight. This is the model for what a shack should be. Beautiful location, surrounded by trees, a shack to re generate the soul. Leave the music off, listen to the sea and the wind in the trees. Everything you need is here, it's understated, classy and perfect for a relaxing stay. We had 4 nights but a week would have been ideal. Looking forward to returning. Seriously, for my tastes, this is the best shack I have stayed in.

Perfect place to escape!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property have created an experience which we loved and will remember for years to come, it's a real credit to them. From the minute you enter Drift Inn, the relaxation washes over you, we had the fire roaring within minutes and loved the fact that you could soak up the view from every part of the living, dining and kitchen areas thanks to the huge glass walls facing the bay. The bedding was comfortable, the house was very clean and the little extras, especially in the pantry and garden were greatly appreciated! We couldn't recommend Drift Inn highly enough for anyone who wants to get away from the usual hustle and bustle of tourist areas, enjoy the beauty and peace of the Huon Valley and the Bay and share your nights with the stars and Possums!! Thank you guys for sharing your fantastic home with us! Hope that our plants are giving the garden some added pleasure to others!
