Gypsy's Rest is the best kept secret in the Hobart / Port Arthur region.

Recently featured on "HOUSE RULES". The Tasmanian contestants stayed at Gypsy's Rest while their house was being renovated by the other teams. And was featured many times on the program.

A beautiful property, with expanding ocean views from almost every part of the house. Hear & see the ocean from your bed.

There is a new funky round couch in the lounge room.

Large verandah's, with a cosy double day bed, BBQ & fabulous outdoor entertainment area's.

The perfect spot to relax with a glass of local Tassie wine, with prawns or a sumptuous Eye Fillet sizzling on the BBQ, while enjoying a breathtaking view, with family, friends or just the two of you.

Very secluded, with your own private path down to the ocean and jetty.

The jetty is located within a 2 minute walk. Perfect for fishing, you can watch your children fishing from the comfort of your holiday house (basic fishing gear is supplied).

There is also a boat ramp at the jetty, where you have boat access to a protected bay.

Fantastic swimming beaches within walking distance.

Pick fresh herbs from the garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful little gem Gypsy's Rest really made our trip special. We visited Tasmania on short notice and under difficult circumstances but the holiday home brought comfort and peace when we needed it. The view is really special from both the main bedroom, the living area and the decking, the courtyard provides an excellent windbreak to enjoy meals, the decking is beautiful and the extra studio is very peaceful with a great view of the bay. The customer service was great and very helpful. There was an awesome selection of teas provided and all the utensils you could need. The decor is all pretty awesome and there are some beautiful pieces around the property. The only critique i can provide is that the water pump next to second bedroom was quite loud particularly in the mornings but it really wasn't a big issue for us. The house is cosy and would shine as a retreat for a couple. Overall, having a beautiful space to lay our heads and a beautiful view to wake up to made a big difference for us and we greatly appreciate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday haven! We had the most relaxing stay and Gypsys rest was my favourite pet friendly stay while in Tassie. It was nice to have somewhere safe for the fur-babies while out exploring and was surprised how easy it was to visit Hobart and Port Arthur; but it was extra special to spend time with everyone just chilling out and enjoying that view! Boys fished, while I relaxed on the deck! perfect holiday destination and will be back one day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WhataTopSpot We recently stayed a Gypsy's rest with my brother and his girlfriend for three nights and we all had such a great time. The home has a really relaxing feel with great views. We spent alot of our time on the deck (soaking in the view) which has a great day bed and outdoor setting. Only a stones throw away (literally...we tried) from the deck is the water front, and your met with cute boat shacks and crystal clear water. The owners were great to communicate with and seem like really genuine people. Its a great distance from Hobart, far enough away to have a small beachy town feel but not to far to drive in and have a day in Hobart. Highly recommend checking it out :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous funky seaside cottage We had a great stay at Gypsy's Rest. It was a gorgeously decorated quirky cottage. With fantastic sea views right on the water front. We were lucky enough to enjoy having breakfast on the deck on a sunny morning. It was lovely and warm and cosy. Our dog had a great time and it was fantastic to have a secure yard for him to roam in.We would love to come back and would highly recommend Gypsy's Rest.
