About Philippa Bienefelt
Married with 3 beautiful adult children and their partners, we are all lovers of sunshine and the beach. Some love riding the waves, while others just love frolicking in the waves or lazing on the beach. So the location of our property suits us perfectly. When traveling I love wandering aimlessly with no fixed agenda and discovering new places. I'm happy with my feet up, with a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other.

Why Philippa Bienefelt chose Bicheno
The east coast of Tasmania is one of my most favourite locations in the world. My husband and I have been bringing our family here since they were small children. Now they are all adults with partners of their own, we wanted a place to come together and enjoy family time. We are all lovers of the beach and the ocean, lovers of surfing, fishing, walking the beach, lazing in the sun, so the close proximity of ON Redbill to one of the areas most iconic beaches drew us to this property. We hope you will enjoy your time here as much as we do.

Warm and Cosy; Covenient and Modern
My family felt welcomed in Redbill. Excellent location for a visit to Bicheno Blowhole and savour fresh delicious oysters, lobsters and mussels! The property is clean, kitchen well equipped and bathroom are well sized. Lovely stay overall.
We loved the property everything was well maintained and felt comfortable and home like - there were a few downsides the two large dogs either side in the next door neighbours yards were quite loud at times luckily not at night time but early in the morning when they were let out and the baby monitors that were provided don't work so my 2 year old ended up camping with us on our bedroom floor because the main bedroom is quite a distance from the children's bedroom apart from that everything was perfect we went for a drive at 8.00pm to see if we could spot some fairy penguins and just around the corner was a little carpark next to the beach where we could easily access the beach with our sleepy children and within 5 minutes a parade of the fluffy fairy penguins came running up the beach! Amazing! The kids had a blast!
Great to hear that you enjoyed the property! I'm so sorry to hear about the dogs disturbing you, that's not what you need when away on holidays! I'm trusting that that is not a regular occurrence. I will also investigate the problem with the baby monitors and have currently removed them from the house. How wonderful that you found the penguins! It's definitely a highlight of a visit to Bicheno - they are regular nightly visitors at this time of year on Redbill Beach, so it's just an easy walk from the house down to the beach to see them. Hopefully we can host you again some time in the future!
Very Good House
We liked most things about this accommodation. Without exception it is a very clean property in every respect and the gas space heater was excellent on some pretty cold nights. The beds were also quite comfortable and the Kitchen was well equipped.
The negatives are not deal breakers by any means. No WiFi was disappointing in this day and age. TV sound was woeful and even a cheap sound bar or sounbase would make a big difference. I say this because there is not much to do in Bicheno on cold winter nights. The last thing is that there is no real garden for small children to play outside and no ocean view which is not advertised by the owners but the web page does include beach images.
Thanks for your comments Geordielass. Great to hear that you enjoyed some things about our property but sorry to hear that your stay didn't meet your expectations. It is stated on the Stayz web page description that the property is a short walk to the beach, and that there is no WIFI currently provided. Having said that, we are in the process of investigating the possibility of having this installed. I'm not sure what the problem was with the TV, up until recently it has been working well, we haven't had any feedback from other guests regarding this and we also use the property ourselves and haven't noticed any issues. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, I have asked for our maintenance person to check to make sure it is operating as it should. Again, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it when our guests let us know of potential issues, so that we can make sure they are rectified promptly.
Great place for holidaying
We loved our stay at this beautiful home. Host was helpful and easy to contact. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable house. Walk distance from the beach.
