                Brent & Lyn the owners make you very welcome. Near OzZoo which is great plus several places to get an evening meal nearby. We stayed 2 nights which you need to see everything nearby of interest. Best to pick up breakfast provisions etc in Sorell before arriving. We really enjoyed our stay here - the gardens are beautiful too.

                Disappointing”
                The owner was terrific and it was clean and the furnishings were ok. So, for a brief one-night stay this would be ok. However, this is not a place you want to spend any time. No views, near the highway, can hear the neighbors talking and tv, no atmosphere. Rather depressing to stay here between hikes and recover and cook a meal.

                Abs by the Bay is generally a nice place to stay in, but the wall separating my unit from the next is so thin that you can literally hear every single word the other party is staying. This is the one important drawback. The rest is good.

                couple of things that had let down the skipper room. the was no kitchen stink. Had to do the dish in a bucket. And no oven don't know what the other rooms were like. Still had a kettle. fridge and microwave,etc,etc. And the other thing I didn't like much was in the bathroom. They had glass bricks for windows and there were no curtain in the bathroom. Felt like you got no privacy when going to have a shower or go to the toilet.All in all a pleasant stay for the night.

And the host even prepared a sofa bed for us even we didn't confirm whether we'll have an extra person. And it's located near a bay side area with a very nice view in the morning. There's no wifi or even cell phone network but the hosts were so nice to offer us their fixed line phone even at a late evening.

                Basic but comfortable room well located on the road to Port Arthur. Staff were very knowledgeable about the area and offered great advice. There is no internet and phone reception for non telstra customers in Port Arthur (and much of Tas) is non-existant. There are also no ATM's nearby so make sure you have enough cash for meals etc. The garden at the rear of the property is perfect for an evening picnic dinner while the sunsets over the water.
