    Dover is a 20 min drive south of Geeveston, and the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. My girls loved the bathtub and we all loved the heated floor in the bathroom. Plenty of firewood and great kitchen, with evo, coffee and condiments provided. There’s a local IGA, bottle shop and a couple of cafes, and the RSL. Great place to get away and wind down.

    Right by the beach, pet and family friendly with a fully enclosed yard, heated bathroom floor and spacious home, coffee machine and fully equipped kitchen, roaring fire and a/c – who could ask for more!

    Loved everything about Castaway cottage. Waves crashing on the beach just across the road, wood heater, heated bathroom floor, real coffee machine, beautifully finished, pet friendly, fully enclosed yard. Over of the best places I have stayed in. Highly recommend.

    this was perfection from the minute we walked in. We arrived late to a warm and welcoming home in the depths of Tassie winter, lights on, fire ready to light, bathroom in-floor heating on and treats on the bed. When the sun came up in the morning we where delighted to look over the harbour, and ships coming into the wharf. The house was spotless, garden enclosed and safe for our dog, and it was a moment’s stroll to the dog beach. What a wonderful place! We have been recommending it to everyone and will certainly look to stay again – our absolute favourite ever stay. Thanks so much!

    Great place to stay, easy to get in, clean and everything you need (except food).

    An amazing place to stay with high end features and a beautiful bathroom (with central floor heating). The location is stunning and with two active boys they enjoyed having the freedom to explore the area and play outside. The fireplace was an absolute treat and we found ourselves at the unit a bit more than we’d planned because it was so comfortable.

    Castaway Cottage is a fantastic place to stay in wonderful Dover. Right across from a beach and park. A must stay.

    Just metres from the water’s edge on the placid Port Esperance, and situated in a quiet road, this is a newly and stylishly renovated cottage, with all conveniences. At night, you can watch boats bob around on the water; and in the morning, wake with a sunrise. But the curtains are total block out too, if you want to sleep in. A relaxing wander along the road or the beach. All up, a great location.

    If you’re looking for the perfect accommodation in Dover, look no further than this one. Rachael’s accommodation is professionally operated, superior in cleanliness, and situated perfectly on the Esplanade, with water views from each bedroom and lounge/dining area. For guests travelling with dogs this accommodation provides a very secure yard and ideal layout. The deep and free standing bath is the icing on the cake. Perfect in every way! 5/5 stars!

    Castaway Cottage is a great place to stay. The hosts attention to detail is spot on. We spent three very pleasant days enjoying the warm fire, warm bathroom and well appointed kitchen and bedrooms.

    Lovely relaxing, cosy space, very close to the water. Cottage has been nicely furnished with very comfy bed & lounge. Loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom.

    Great stay, thanks! A brilliant espresso machine and a well stocked fireplace made it even better than expected. Clean and uncluttered. There’s a good park with swings and slides only a stones throw away. Highly recommended.

    The cottage is beautiful and has great amenities. The location is stunning and the beach is right outside the door. Great to be able to visit with your dog. Would come back.

    Lovely! Right by the beach, this is a great place for a chilled out weekend away. Kitchen is well kitted out (we cooked up a storm), the bedrooms come with their own sitting room, and every window has a cracking view.

    By far one of the best places I have ever stayed. Spotless and had everything you could need for a cosy weekend away.

    We had a lovely stay at Castaway Cottage in Dover. The house is spotlessly clean, newly renovated and beautifully presented. It was great having access to a full, well equipped kitchen. With an IGA nearby we were able to cook dinner both nights. A huge bathroom with a deep, separate bath. My favourite part was all the sitting areas that allowed me to enjoy the water views.
