Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shack-like features, high price This property is inhospitable from my point of view. See what you think: if you think it's reasonable for 7 guests to be provided with 2 rolls of toilet paper over the Christmas period when the property's located in the middle of nowhere with no shops within reasonable access, at the best of times let alone Christmas, you may enjoy your stay here. If you want a tiny living room in which guests must take it in turns to sit on the grotty rug because there aren't enough seats, you'll be happy. If you don't care for an indoor dining table during mosquito season and you're happy to cook on an uncleaned BBQ, you're unlike me and my 6 friends. We paid a high price for this tiny shack-like property (more than for a stunning place in central Paris!) and feel completely ripped off. My advice: there are plenty of quality places elsewhere. You'll be a lot happier to pay a quality-price for services that justify the high price, especially if they're provided by people who understand the meaning of hospitality from a broad range of perspectives, not just their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing place to stay! This was a lovely property to stay in. The views were amazing, the house was very comfortable and functional and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The fact that is pet friendly was a bonus. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips and it truly was a home away from home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to go back there again myself.

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!
