As featured in "Out and About with Kids" Magazine, Spring 2008 Issue.

Address- 83 Carlton Beach Road, Dodges Ferry.

Now in it's 10th year of operating a family friendly beach side accommodation Longest running Holiday House in the area - so stay with confidence

Surf side Cottage has been operating from early 2005 With a full refurbishment inside in 2010 and continues to provide affordable family friendly accommodation on one of Tasmania's most popular beaches.

Amazing outlook from a very private Beach Front Cottage, overlooking Frederick Henry Bay and Carlton Beach Park Beach end. The property enjoys over 50 meters of beach frontage, with only a narrow reserve of sand dunes between the cottage and the beach. The property also has a good degree of privacy and gate in front of the deck leads to a path directly to the beach.

Relax on the large deck to enjoy watching the local surfers & kite surfers, along with the local wildlife birds in abundance, possums, wallabies and bandicoots. Watch the sun go down from the deck, with a glass of wine, then fall to sleep with the sound of waves crashing on the beach.

Surf Side Cottage is a traditional Beach side shack - a little rustic on the outside, with modern comforts on the inside to make your stay more enjoyable. We are not five star, but far more roomy than a hotel room on a large residential private allotment and very comfortable and cosy in an unbeatable location. Excellent value for money - great for families and couples alike.

Two Bedrooms. Main Bedroom with a very comfortable Queen bed & second TV. Second Bedroom with a bunk bed - double on the bottom and single on the top. Great for 2 couples traveling together or plenty of room for the family.

Other facilities include; One modern bathroom with separate shower bay and a bath. There is a front loading washing machine located in this area too. Separate Toilet composting toilet adjacent to the bathroom. A fully equipped modern kitchen, with a twin drawer dishwasher. Inverter Heat Pump for year round comfort Air Cond & Heating, and a wood fire heater to snuggle up in front of on those romantic winter evenings.

Large comfortable couch to enjoy the Wood Fire and/or TV, plus a Blue Ray player. There is a selection of DVD's & CD's to enjoy as well. There is a second TV in the main bedroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I thought it odd at first that there were no reviews... then I thought maybe it's a new listing... but if that was the case how could they have received a review from 2008? Nevertheless proceeded to make a booking. Now I know why there are no reviews, either people didn't stay long enough to leave one, or all the negative ones are deleted. The beach was nice, the sound of the waves was peaceful.. it's the only nice thing I could say. The yard is not maintained, with a large lattice of rebar swallowed by plants, broken bricks in the parking area and pieces of construction material all over the place... creating lovely little hides holes for snakes. Pet friendly? Only if you want them to remain on lead... certainly not suitable for children Inside, I understand the continued reference to the review in 2008 that must have been the last time it was cleaned properly... there are rabbits outside in nature and dust bunnies abound inside too! The cups in the cupboard stick when you go to grab one for a coffee, the sponges to do dishes are mouldy, the Doonas are too small for the bed, and considering the climate in Tassie the beds are a disgrace. Bottom sheet, no top flat sheet, when was the last time they were cleaned? No extra blankets provided to be found anywhere. The screens on the windows were torn so opening the windows was out of the question, the BBQ was dirty and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in decades. Getting to the beach was a challenge with a terribly overgrown path, even one of the steps was held up by a dog bone... For the price, I could have stayed at anywhere else in Hobart or surrounds. I should have stayed anywhere else in Hobart.
