Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location, wonderful host We had stayed here in 2011 and had no hesitation in booking in again. John is a great host, helpful when you need it and happy to leave you be when you don't. I used one of the kayaks that John offers and spent several hours paddling the Derwent backwaters. The house, while comfortable will soon be in need of a little renovation to bring it back to the same standard we enjoyed 5 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Family Getaway Beautiful location with stunning water views. Less than 20 mins from Central Hobart and Salamanca Market. Perfect home base for fishing and exploring Southern Tassie. We loved staying in the very comfortable home away from home. The owner of this property was most accommodating and very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place to stay Very comfortable and pleasant house. Some appliances didn't work or were not fully functional but nothing that stopped us having a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Only wished we could have stayed longer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Views - very peaceful location We had a great time staying at Derwent Vista. We stayed based on the location, which is walking distance to Austins Ferry boat ramp, my husband was here for some bream fishing. He caught 23 bream in one day out on the Derwent (by boat) so a great place to base yourself if you have a boat and plan to fish the river. We brought all our own gear but John will kindly provide rods, nets etc for you. Hubby even caught a barracouta off the front garden. Our 2yo loved the digger in the backyard! The home is not modern but was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The pantry was well stocked with staples and there is large supermarket a few minutes drive down the road for groceries etc.
