We had a very relaxing 3 night stay in January 2014. It was so private and peaceful staying in such a lovely bush setting, yet so close to the water. It was great being able to see across the bay to the Dockyards at the Port Arthur Historic Site and the Isle of the Dead. The facilities were excellent and we especially appreciated the spacious layout and having a second bathroom/toilet. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the Bay Retreat as a well-located and comfortable accommodation facility on the Tasman Peninsula.

Our extended family stayed, unfortunately, for only 1 night at this sparkling clean and impressively well-appointed property. Very private but in a great position to access all the tourist spots on the Tasman Peninsula. Would definitely recommend!

Bob & Joy said:

Comfortable and clean and tidy. Ideal home stay for a day or more and close to Port Arthur. Our two teenaged grandchildren from Queensland thought the accommodation was “wicked”.

Peter said:

Our family of 4 stayed overnight in September and loved the house, and the close proximity to Port Arthur and surrounds. Found it good value and could have stayed longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property Close to Historic Site We stayed for 3 nights at this property with our two grand daughters aged 9 and 5 years.It was an excellent stay. The property is well secured, quiet, clean and very close to the Port Arthur Historic Site. One of our grand daughters has a broken arm and the provision of both a separate shower and a bath tub made personal bathing so much easier for her. The washing machine and dryer are high quality appliances and much appreciated. The house was warm and comfortable. We highly recommend the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous hideaway We spent a lovely night at Bay Retreat, but unfortunately it was too short … we arrived late and left early, so didn't have time to enjoy the bay. Everything was great. We would suggest a few staples in the kitchen though -- given that there are no stores nearby. The milk in the fridge was pas the 'best before' date. And there were no tea towels. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - Property & Location for Port Arthur We enjoyed our stay, would have been good to have a little longer. Nice quiet location, but still very close to Port Arthur. We were a group of 4 adults, found the appliances, spaciousness & comfort very good. Cleanliness also excellent. Arrangements for entry were trouble free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous location We had a great stay at Bay Retreat though would have liked an extra couple of days. Right on the water with easy access for boats, canoes an water activities. The amenities at the house good and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Kitchen well equipped and spotlessly presented which is a must for a good cook. We recommend at least 3 days to explore the area and enjoy the surroundings...a week would be even better
