“Spectacularly secluded location”

If you are wanting a quiet gorgeous get-a-away from the hustle of the cities, this is your place. The view from everywhere in the cottage except the back bedroom is exquisite. You hear the ocean lapping on the shore not 10 meters from your cottage. That being said, you then can't skip down to the local store for a coffee or a bite to eat! The drive to the nearby stores or restaurants is about 20 minutes. We went on day trips to Port Arthur and Wineglass Bay and these trips were shortened by our Frogmouth location as compared to Hobart - so you win in that respect. You will need to hire a car and we found Budget extremely reasonable. Branko and Ivanka keep in touch with you to see you are not wanting for anything. A place to remember.

“Simply stunning”

It proved tricky to leave this review because Trip Advisor has it listed as Dodges Ferry when, in fact, it is in Primrose Sands, about 12 kms away. I'm sure there would be more ultra-positive reviews if it was listed in the correct spot. Never mind. Wow! The bottom line is that this must be one of the best beach holiday homes in Australia, in an absolutely beautiful position with the sand literally a few steps away and the sound of the sea your constant, lulling companion. The "cottage" is wonderfully equipped with everything you could possibly need to assist your stay, including an efficient log fire for those chilly nights backed up by effective reverse cycle air con, electric blankets, bedroom heaters. Lovely touches include bathroom amenities and basics in the kitchen to help you avoid too much self-cater cost. Just sit back in the lounge in awe, looking through the plate glass windows at the ocean beyond. A recipe for total relaxation. It's a great base to explore southern Tassie, but you will find yourself not wanting to leave the front door (and not wanting to go home at the end of trip)!
Fish from the beach or rocks with the complimentary fishing gear, paddle out in the complimentary kayaks, swim, walk, have a glass of wine on the front terrace, bbq a steak. It's a long way from our gorgeous Queensland, but we have fallen in love!
A big thank you to the perfect hosts for a wonderful break we will not forget.

What is National Treasure? A rarest of places of unimaginable priceless beauty where sum of its parts is exceeded by magic, where fantasy merges with reality, where your dreams become reality, live the dream! It’s where gravity of Tasmanian history gives way to lightness of innocence like child in mother’s arms. Nowhere else will mother embrace you so tenderly, caress you so gently with whispers of wind, put you to sleep with lullaby of the waves and melody of a wind chime.
Our guests come from far and wide, domestic, interstate and international, and have left us with most incredible guest entries and reviews that are a treasure trove of unforgettable memories and none wanted to go home. Is Frogmouth Cottage a National Treasure? Our guests have ticked all the boxes.

“Perfection”

This is the best place to stay in Tasmania. Everything is spotless and well thought-out. Guests want for nothing. And the views and location are superb. Do yourself a favour and don't miss this one on your next trip to Tasmania. It''s worth every cent and more. It should win an award from Tourism Tasmania. Ideal for couples or families, as children are well catered for with books and DVDs and a 55 inch TV. There are plenty of towels, both bath and beach, the beds are comfortable and the huge wood-burning fire is state of the art, not to mention the alternative electric heating. Just perfect!

Wow Jenny, thank you kindly. How could anyone want more from a review. Mother nature has given us one of the most beautiful places on Earth and we humbly try to match it with customer service. Our new Quadra Fire heater is a knockout we enjoyed it immensely all winter. It now makes no difference, Summer, Winter, Spring or Autumn, every day is a day of magic at Frogmouth Cottage. It was lovely having you stay, we hope you come again and sincerely wish you success in your own property hunt in Tasmania.
