Rated 5 out of 5 by from Million dollar view! Shack on the edge has the best view of anywhere I've ever stayed all over the world. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything you need. We hired a car and it was only a fifteen minute drive to city. However, we were reluctant to leave that view! We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins swim by! The property owners, Sue and Doug were lovely and helpful if needed. I can't recommend this place enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hosts Owing to health circumstances, we had to cancel our holiday, but Sue & Doug freely offered to refund our deposit. Will definitely look up Shack on the Edge if we get another chance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from That View! Super cosy little shack. We could have stayed and looked at the amazing view the whole time. Little kitchenette is perfect for breakfast or making rolls ect to take for lunch. Huge comfy bed. Wonderful shower. In a great location not far everything you need and 15 mins from Hobart just over the bridge. Try to avoid peak hour into the city if you can as it was quite bad when we went but a breeze on the weekend. Doug and Sue were excellent hosts, keen for a chat if you want but not intrusive at all. We will definitely be back.
