Cliff Top Hideaway is nestled on a boundary of coastal reserve perched above 30 meter high sandstone cliffs with a view of all of the islands in the Huon river mouth.
It is set amongst two and a half acres of coastal forest with abundant local flora and fauna.
We have counted 28 species of bird from the front verandah including the rare swift parrots! Maybe you can find more or put some meat scraps out in the evening and watch the eastern quolls feeding from the comfort of the cosy fireside lounge!
Step off the front verandah and wander down the coastal track, 5 minutes to the pristine Mickeys beach or continue via a nature reserve for a one hour return stroll to the beautiful Randalls bay.
The waters below the cliffs provide great snorkeling and kayaking (BYO Kayaks and gear) with kelp beds to explore and the fishing in the region is great.
When active you can watch the Aurora Australis (the southern lights) from the front verandah!
Due to the close proximity of the cliffs this rental property is not recommended for young children.
The shack itself has been recently renovated and is clean, cosy and warm and still retains it,s rustic charm as a classic Tasmanian weekender.
It is an open plan design with two sleeping areas, one with a multi bunk and the other with a queen bed which has a glorious view of the coast.
The lounge has a wood heater and there is a tv/dining room as well as a separate kitchen.
All rooms have coastal or bushland views including the bathroom where you can soak in a lovely old cast iron bath whilst looking out to sea.
There is ample parking space for your car, boat or van.
Cliff Top Hideaway is only 15 minutes drive from the township of Cygnet where you can dine out or pick up your supplies and wander through the many shops and galleries.
Hobart city is just under one hour drive and you can choose three alternate routes including the scenic coastal drive via Kettering.
Cliff Top Hideaway is a great base to explore Tasmania's beautiful south from, with most tourist attractions within two hours drive or just kick back and enjoy the views and walks from home!


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, relaxing and cosy! My partner and I enjoyed our stay especially warm nights by the fire and watching the quolls play on the verandah. A beautiful view from the bath overlooking the bays . The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could you need to make yourself at home. The bed was sooo comfortable. Only a short drive into cygnet :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clifftop Hideaway - aptly named Throughout our stay our first impressions were proven - clean, warm and cosy, homely atmosphere. All our requirements were satisfied. We had a comfortable relaxing time, as well as enjoying the coastal tracks for short or longer walks. Great location for observing local native plant species and birds, and even an aurora if your timing is opportune!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect escape We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous location. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and with everything you could need on hand. The wildlife was a huge treat and the regeneration of the native plants is to be commended. Will happily recommend to anyone looking for a quiet escape from the everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the comforts, plus all of the nature What a beautiful cosy cottage, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of Tassie surrounding you. It is like having your own wildlife refuge with potoroos and bandicoots and quolls to watch off of the porch in the afternoon. Plus a quiet and pristine beach just a few minutes walk away. A perfect 'get away from it all' spot any time of year.
