Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great veiws Couple stayed for 4 nights during winter. Views are fantastic. House needs attention. One of the reasons for selecting here was the mention of an open fire. This had been boarded up prior to our arrival - too many incidents with previous occupants. Premises has under floor heating but to expect it to warm up turning it on arrival just doesn't work. Other stand alone electric heater took the chill off but that was all. Wifi didn't work. Shower extremely small in size. I could mention numerous other small problems, some of which were address when mentioned but being realistic the place is getting old and until it has a renovation would find somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a beautiful house and property. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Derwent Retreat and would recommend it to anyone. Every time we walked around the extensive gardens we found something new and the views were to die for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After hiking the Overland Track for five days, four brothers arrived tired and grumpy ready to complain about something. John and his wife showed us their Derwent retreat, a beautiful home perched on an exclusive river bluff overlooking the water, and we melted into a state of bliss for the next five days. We had barbecues, long naps, warm weather and cold beers all in a home away from home on the Derwent River. Great for families...perfect for those who love the water and a warm welcome from some of the best hosts in Hobart!
