Kettering is a comfortable 35 minute drive south of Hobart. Perfect for a weekend escape. The house is suited for a couple or the two additional bedrooms make a family gathering or two couples a great option. The country farm house is set on an acre of garden with mature trees and extensive grassed areas. There are an additional two acres of bush reserve. Sunny north facing with a large veranda equipped with two couches perfect to relax on whilst finishing that novel. There is also an outdoor covered entertaining area which is great for afternoon and evening meals. Large main guest room with walk in wardrobe, en suite and private balcony. Additional rooms available with double bed and children's bedroom with two single beds.

Comfortable cozy lounge room with two leather lounges, wood fire heater and entertainment system including IPod connector. Free WIFI NBN Internet . GLBTI friendly. You are welcome to browse the book shelves or make use of a fairly wide selection of DVD's Sleep well on the new comfy mattresses with all quality linen and towels supplied.

Only a few minutes drive to the Bruny Island ferry terminal where you can spend the day exploring the Island . Also short drives to the historic towns of Woodbridge and Cygnet. Close to several wineries, wine tastings and restaurants in the channel district including the award winning Peppermint Cove. Weekends also offer food at the Oyster Cove Hotel, Turkish takeaways and a local pizza restaurant. Alternatively just relax and enjoy the comforts of home in a peaceful idyllic location and cook up a storm in the fully equipped modern kitchen with basic condiments supplied.

The house and property are yours to use exclusively with complete privacy.

There are no major supermarkets close to Kettering so best to get your supplies in Hobart or Kingston. There is a small local store which has a good range of essential supplies you may have forgotten or require.

Please follow the in house rules located in the house book and sorry but no smoking allowed and no pets as much as I love dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Beautiful Relaxing Getaway What an AMAZING House it was just as described. Secluded, Quiet, Relaxing, Plenty of room, Comfortable Beds, IMMACULATELY clean Kitchen and Bathrooms, with everything you would need. Gorgeous Gardens. Attention to detail with Fresh Flowers from the garden in every room. Lots of Intriguing and Beautiful pieces of Furniture to admire. The only regret we had was we couldn't stay longer. Thankyou Marcus for letting us share your Beautiful House. We will be back. Cheers Maree

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful friendly home close to gourmet produce. When you are staying somewhere for five nights you want to feel welcome, be comfortable and have things to do. This property delivers on all fronts. The home is truly that - a home. It's not filled with generic white crockery and bland furnishings - you can feel the owner's love for the place and his wish for you to enjoy it too. There is everything you need - ample space, comfortable furniture, beautiful linen, excellent beds, a fully stocked kitchen (including some staple pantry items/condiments), a lovely garden, some bush to wander in, wildlife to watch, hammocks, piano, fruit trees... The house is large enough that you can always find a quiet nook to snuggle into and there are a myriad of outdoor seating areas designed to let you chase the sun or shade around with a cuppa and a book. My children loved their cosy room and there was a great stash of games/books and DVDs. They loved running around the lawn and exploring the local area - turbo chooks to chase, horses to visit, adventures to be had. Nearby is Bruny Island with all of its natural beauty and a number of boutique producers of cheese, whisky, smoked goods and the like. A short drive takes you to Peppermint Bay (lovely food and setting), Grandvewe Sheep Cheese (divine Brebichon cheese, sheep milking, Vanilla Whey liqueur), cherry orchards, the Oyster Cove General Store (fantastic local produce), Jam and Bread in Margate (great coffee, lovely cakes, good breakfasts) and Hobart is a doddle up the Channel Hwy/Southern Outlet. A few minutes walk down the road is Nutpatch Nougat and Chocolates - walk there, so you can try more of the glorious chocolates made by Giovanni. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a tranquil (but never boring) stay in southern Tasmania. I plan to visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture perfect country retreat Loved our stay in Kettering - spent many pleasant hours just chilling in the house and garden. The location was great for day trips to Hartz national park, Hobart, Coal valley and Bruny Island. We also enjoyed a visit to the sheep cheese farm, vineyards and delicious dinner at the Oyster Cove Inn in Kettering. Beds were supremely comfortable - as my daughter described like "sleeping on a cloud". The children loved exploring the garden and picking fresh cherries and apricots. Thank you for a wonderful week discovering the Huon valley!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb stay! We stayed here over Christmas and it truly felt like a home from home. We arrived to fresh flowers in every room, cherries off the tree, home-made jam and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. The welcome continued with extremely comfortable beds made up with opulent linen. The house has a warm and welcoming feel to it and is well equipped to meet every need. There is lots of space for everyone both inside and outside - the only dilemma is where to relax out of all of the interesting choices - comfy couches in the lounge or window seat in the kitchen or at the table setting on the deck or comfy couch on the verandah or in one of the hammocks in the garden ... the garden is big and beautiful - lots of lawn for kids to run and play. We saw bunnies and wallabies and lots of birdlife and I was very excited to see a bandicoot one evening. The house and gardens are enough of a reason to stay here but it is also conveniently situated for day trips to Hobart and a huge highlight of our stay was taking to ferry to Bruny Island for the day. The ferry is just a few minutes drive from the house. We limited our exploration to a day in Hobart to visit Salamanca Market and our trip to Bruny Island but there is so much to see and do within a short driving distance. We would highly recommend this getaway and would definitely return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property! Will stay again. This was a very clean, well appointed, well furnished property, with lovely interior decorating, in a terrific location. I always use Stayz and this is the first time I have bothered to review. This house has everything you would need, very private, very cosy. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children, the kids had a ball exploring the yard (and beautiful garden), and toys and boardgames, and as my son is reading Willie Wonka he was delighted to see the children's Willie Wonka doona covers. Thank you to Marcus for taking the time to call me before hand to make sure I knew how to get there and offer advice on the local area, he even had the fire lit for us when we arrived. I highly recommend this property.
