On arrival, we couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces as we carried our belongings across the deck past your stunning waterfall. We loved the thoughtful touches: fireplaces being set, provision of dedicated utensils for the barbeque and pizza oven, fresh bread and delicious scrolls. The accommodation is well appointed, in particular the outdoor spa is very welcome after returning from a day’s walking.

This hidden gem is the best place you will ever stay. It is secluded and private, surrounded by lovely natural Tasmanian forest and fronting a spectacular river and waterfall. The Cottage itself is charming and full of character, and the information folder for guests gives great insight and description about the lengths the owners have gone to, to create this magical hideaway. The owners have provided everything you will need to enjoy your stay, and the outdoor living areas are a highlight with a pizza oven, bbq, and outdoor setting available for your use. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and hot tub which helped to accentuate the tranquil, restful ambiance that we were looking for. The only thing that could add to the enjoyment of this place is a 2nd bedroom do that you could share the experience with friends. You will not regret staying here, just make sure you shop for food before you arrive, because once you get here, you won’t want to leave.

Falls river took our breath away. The pictures do not do this place justice. Daryl and Donna have created a sanctuary that is hands down the best self maintained accommodation I have ever stayed in. The cottage is immaculate but very cozy. There are so many thoughtful additions (exclusive access to a waterfall, fireplace, aircon, functional kitchen, deck,bbq, pizza over, spa) that no matter what the season, the cottage can be thoroughly enjoyed. Our stay was private and memorable. I can’t fault Daryl and Donna’s attention to detail. My partner and I were so impressed
