About Julie Swanson
We relocated from Western Australia to enjoy the fantastic relaxed lifestyle Tasmania provides. The weather is very mild all year round and if it gets chilly we have the wood burning stove to keep us warm. We have quick access to the beach and the mountains, with Melbourne only an hour's flight away.
Julie Swanson purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Julie Swanson chose Squeaking Point
We fell in love with this property as it offers a peaceful semi-rural location just minutes from the water and only 6 kilometres from the shopping centre, cafes, ATM etc
What makes this Cottage unique
We allow pets inside the cottage so you can bring along your beloved family members to enjoy the holiday too! Plenty of parking too so you can bring the boat and bikes too.

Great little cottage
Friendly hosts great central spot to visit northern areas
I enjoyed the three nights there, and that I could take my little dogs there. (even a doggie door, which they soon learnt how to use). Loved the wood heater. And the little extras such as salt and pepper and cooking oil. Very quiet, peaceful, just what I was needing.
Excellent cosy property
The place had everything you need to make breakie and some.
Great DVD collections.
And host Julie was lovely and welcoming!
Very Cosy & Comfortable
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would stay again and certainly recommend. Loved the chooks and dear little dog.
real cosy !

Thank you Frank, lovely to have you stay with us. Glad you enjoyed it !!
I'd recommend staying at Cosy Cottage.
Cosy Cottage has got everything from toiletries to games and puzzles and very generous food basics which got us through breakfast! I think the hosts have thought of just about everything. We only stayed for one night but it felt like home.
