Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The beds are really comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need, the place is big, bedrooms are a goid size, master bedroom and ensuite is huge, the place is decorated in a unique quirky fashion that sets it apart from other homes. Anh can help with anything you need. There are lots of wallabies and you can walk into the forest via a track at the end of the road.

Lovely property, spacious and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Kunanyi Estate. The house was clean, with plenty of space for kids to play and us to relax. We were disappointed that the ‘heated’ pool was not warm enough to swim in, even on the hottest days with apparent solar heating installed (which may not have been set up to work properly at the time) - as we’d specifically looked to rent a house with a swimming pool. Otherwise the beds were comfortable and the outdoor pizza oven was a lot of fun to use. We enjoyed the beautiful views as well as the visiting wallabies at dusk. It is a great family escape with all the necessary amenities to have a relaxing holiday, with only a 15 min drive to Hobart.

I am gladly report that the solar heated system is working well now. Hope to have a chance to welcome you back soon. Wish you and your family all the best in the New Year! Kind regards, Anh

Lovely get-away

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our stay at the property. It was very spacious. Anh has a great taste for interior design. The house is beautiful and clean, and is surrounded by nature. It is very well equipped which made our stay easy and comfortable. Our 2 year old daughter truly enjoyed watching wallabies eating grass from the window. Thanks Anh, for such an amazing place!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at the Hobart Entrance. Yes, I agree that it is all the finest experience Tasmania got to offer. Love the decoration of the house, especially the special Tassi wood cladding. Totally relaxing. The amazing view changes every hours. Love waking up to the view and the bird singing. The kids love watching all the wild animals in the garden; and off course the wood fire pizza oven. Very comfortable bed, great sleep every night. love that every room has its own ensuite. The master ensuite is a highight. So spacious, light, and luxurious. Sparkling clean. Would love to come back. Thank you Anh for providing us with such a great experience.

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great - the Retreat was beautifully made and would suit large groups or a couple like us. Bilbys jumping all over the yard were a highlight, as was the view of Blackman's Bay (we had a full moon, so it was stunning). The stovetop and Netflix did not work, but we managed to cook and entertain ourselves in other ways. The bath is huge and was a highlight. The wooden walls and red curtains were very Twin Peaks-esque, and the bed was comfortable. I have already recommended the property to friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Tammi: I am very happy you had a great time. My apologies again for the hiccups during your stay. The induction stove top was in the lock mode during cleaning for safety and just need to be unlocked by pressing on two buttons at the same time. Same with Netflix, the Netflix and the internet just need to be reset (power on and off) and it should work as well. We are always just a phone call away and can be of assistance to any of the technical problems any time so please next time be sure to contact us. I also want to add that I am upgrading to NBN internet this month and should have much more stable internet connection. We do hope to have a chance to welcome you and Paul back again. Kindest regards, Anh

Made our Trip to TAS!

  • 5 of 5

From the US and stayed at the house for a week in June. Where to begin? The house is absolutly beutiful! Once you know how special Huon Pine and the wood of TAS is you appreciate how amazing the decor is. We woke up to about 8 wallabies hopping around the yard every morning, parrots, lots of other birds chatting in the mornings. Waking up to the sunrise looking through the huge windows out on the sea and city with a cup of coffee was a ritual every morning. Woke up early just to see the day start from that view. It is super quite at night sitting out on the patio looking at the city lights below. Kingston is very close so easy to drive down the hill into town for anything you need or a quick trip to the beach. Really enjoyed having our local friends over for a pizza buffet cooked in the outdoor pizza oven. Glass of wine, tending the oven looking at the view with good friends and good food! One of the best memories of our two week stay in TAS. Anh was super helpful and great at getting back with us if we had any questions. Defianlty take some time to walk up the road and check out the trail that leads up to some amazing views. Was a good start to the day to do a little walk and come back to the well equipped kitchen and make some breakfast. Beds were super comfortable!

We did not want to leave!! THank you Anh and family for sharing your wonderful home and making our trip to Tasmania so memorable!
