“Even better than we had imagined!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Our stay at Coningham Cottage was more than we could have hoped for. Located in a quiet cove with a mind-boggling view, the house has two well-appointed bedrooms (one with that amazing view), plenty of wood for the fire, electric blankets on the beds, a sun room and all the comforts of home (dvds, cd player, books & a few basic supplies). There is solar hot water but there is also a booster switch for grey days. It was a great spot to base ourselves for a week's worth of exploration of the south-eastern region of Tassie.
We arrived in Tasmania at 7:30pm so hubby had to do without his precious "real" coffee until we could explore enough to find supplies the next morning, so I recommend coming earlier in the day and allowing time to drive to the nearest little towns (Snug & Margate) to stock up. We brought our two boys with us who are 3.5 and 10 years...they loved it but you'd need to be careful with younger toddlers as the yard has no boundaries and slopes down sharply to the road & beach below.
Owner Viki left us a lovely note and was most personable. We are keen to come back again some day! Highly recommended.

Many thanks for your review! Glad you were so pleased with our set up. I understand about your point re the TV - I weigh the pros and cons often.
Thanks also for the tips to other travellers - new enterprises are constantly "popping up" which we mightn't know about and it's good to get your feedback.
Cheers V

“Wish we could have stayed longer !!”

My husband and I had a great time relaxing in Coningham Cottage. The location is perfect, not far from Brunny Island, Hobart, Mount Wellington and many more surrounding attractions. The view from the cottage is very peaceful. For those of you who like cooking, the kitchen is quite big. We were there for 3 nights/4 days, we wish we could have stayed longer!! Thank you to Viki, the owner, who made sure we had a great time.

“Never stayed anywhere better.”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Coningham was very easy to find, coming from the Hobart airport by car. Driving down the coast was a great introduction to stunning Tasmania, and the Coningham bay itself was very pretty.

Great first impressions, with a lovely, well-kept garden. The house was beautiful, airy and very quiet. The wooden floors and large rooms made for a very pleasant living environment.

We spent Christmas at the cottage and it was everything we wanted. The peace was incredible and we spent many hours sitting on the veranda contemplating the view. There was lots of space- more than we needed- and the kitchen was very well equipped (lots of utensils and large BBQ), though low water pressure made it harder to wash up. The weather wasn't great when we were there, but it didn't matter as the house was so pleasant to hang out in.

We drove to nearby Bruny Island, it was great (wildlife/wine). And a day trip to Signet was also lovely, with some of the best cross-country driving around.

It is very difficult to do justice to how incredible this location is, I just would like to say that this cottage is without comparison. We LOVED it.

Thanks again

“Very Relaxing - paradise”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Very clean and well catered Cottage, with beautiful views. Perfect spot - peaceful, quiet and relaxing, and still close enough to Hobart (30 mins). The fact we had excellent weather during our stay was just a mere bonus - our holiday would have been terrific anyway ! Vikki kept in touch before, during and after our stay - a great host. We will be back !
