    The most amazing 5 days yet in TAS. A winter wonderland with toasty fire, hot tub, deep bath, chefs kitchen and luxury at every turn.
    Did I mention the views – simply stunning.
    It was only the last morning that we discovered the oysters on the rocks – too late though.
    The little rocky beach is a delight but not easy to navigate – be sure to take your rock shoes. Once you get past the rocks it is sandy and for a cold water plunge exhilarating. Go to Dover the cute fishing village south – with good supplies and go to Cygnet for good local art and craft. We spent a lot of money at Ian Claire’s pottery gallery – such amazing work from this incredible local artist. His daughter runs the wine bar in Geeveston – well worth a lunch. The Tahune Air Walk is a must and the Hastings Caves are extraordinary. Be home in time for sunset though and to watch the birds all migrate back to their sleeping quarters .
    Just go! Libby and Terese

    A really beautiful location, serene and peaceful. We had a wonderfully relaxing few days. Just a short drive to beaches and restaurants.

    I strongly recommend this place for anyone who needs some time out to relax. Everything (finding the property, checking in, using appliances) was easy and hassle free. All necessities (milk, fresh bread,butter,coffee,tea,oil…wine, chocolate) are supplied. looking out over the water was spectacular (we saw some seals) – and the house is beautifully designed. it is very well insulated and gets a lot of sun – we were there for a few nights over winter and only put the fire on one night…for a couple of hours before it got too warm 🙂 The yard is large and well fenced – our dog had a lovely time exploring. I’m so glad we booked here – it was totally worth it.

    Beautiful home placed perfectly amongst nature ambient and secluded this place had everything we needed for a quiet relaxing getaway.

    Fair Winds was the tranquil escape we needed!
    From the moment we arrived, everything was just perfect – even the weather!
    Relaxing at this beautiful home was an easy feat.
    Everything was so well thought out. The property was immaculate and offered luxurious living.
    The kitchen was fabulously set up and a joy to cook in.
    The views of the bay, absolutely stunning. You could get sidetracked very easily watching the skies change across the water.
    The jacuzzi & private access to the beach were a highlight!
    The photos of this property do not do it justice, the home, location and feel is far beyond the images.
    We can’t wait to stay again soon.
    Thanks for having us.

    Fair winds is absolutely amazing and private yards are pristine a stones throw from the water stunning all round

    Fantastic property!! Couldn’t fault anything 😊 Will definitely be back.

  8. Kim

    Robert Devine

    Fair Winds was a treat for us all. A magical spot, private with sensational views of Brooks Bay. Essentially two wings with bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms in each providing privacy for each couple. The kitchen is a delight, as is the deck and living areas. A perfect getaway. Ideal for a break from the stresses of a busy life as it is a half hour drive south of Huonville and we couldn’t get the Internet to work (but decided that was a good thing!)
    Do yourself a favour and book!
    Fingers crossed we return one day soon. Thank you.

    Fairwinds is a beautiful piece of Tasmania, easy to find and great amenities. Would recommend for anyone looking to have some time out in luxe surroundings.

    How did I not know this little peace of paradise existed! Jaw dropping beauty so close to Hobart. We had the most amazingly peaceful, relaxing time. Part of me wants to keep this place a secret so I can go back whenever I want, the other part of me wants to spread the word that this place should definitely be on your next holiday list. Every single box ticked for us! We will most certainly be back.

    Couldn’t fault this place. Absolutely amazing views, spacious, clean, and a nice little surprise once you arrive! It’s clear Rachel really cares about her visitors. The Hot tub is fantastic, we were able to see the night sky light up with stars during our stay, truly beautiful. Thanks Rachel!

    Wow! What a place. We stayed here for 2 nights with another couple and our dog Gypsie and we all had the BEST time. Rachael was super prompt with communication and helpful when discussing pet-related questions. The location is pretty special, right on the water with lovely panoramic views and a perfect spot for sunset drinks down at the private beach. The house itself is incredibly well stocked with everything you need for a lovely weekend away. Would definitely stay again!

    This spot is in the perfect location for chilling out and feeling like you have private getaway. The house is well equipped and the fence felt very safe for our small dog to run around in. We would recommend this spot for anyone wanting a retreat with a beautiful view.

    Fantastic few days at Fair Winds albeit during the coldest few days this year so far (June long weekend). Thankfully, we were able to crank the wood fire and remain toasty warm. It truly is a stunning location and the house is modern, comfy and clean. Its a great place to unwind. Due to the weather, we did more cooking than we had planner for and found the kitchen well stocked with utensils, appliances and some basic pantry items . There’s an IGA at Dover and also one at Geeveston. We also went to the Huon Salmon farm gate (which is just up the road from the house) to get some delicious smoked salmon. Rachel is a fantastic host with booking and communications very easy. We’ve already earmarked Fair Winds for a repeat visit in hopefully (!) not the too distant future.

    Stop looking at other properties, as you have found the perfect place. Book it now before you miss out! The photos do not do it justice and you will have your breath taken away by the views right from the comfort of the indoor fire or outdoor hot tub. The blinds are remote controlled so you can start your day staring out at the views without even getting out of bed. Not to mention the private beach. The accommodation has fishing rods so you can try your luck however I would recommend some floating hooks as it is very rocky and without them you spend more time dealing with snags then you do fishing. We were welcomed with the fire ready to light, fresh bread, butter, chocolates and wine. Plus everything you need to cook dinner at home. Stock up in Hounville as there are few supplies after that. The drive into Hobart is very picturesque through all the little towns and apple orchards. It makes for a great day trip. We spent 4 nights here and didn’t want to leave. Thank you to the team behind Fair Winds, a truly memorable experience.

    This property is absolutely spectacular, the views are breathtaking and the house is stunning. Due to Covid, we needed to reschedule multiple times and when we finally got there is was more amazing they we imagined, gorgeous little life upon arrival and everything you’d need is there. Couldn’t have been a more perfect house for a trip away.

    Would give this 7 out of 5 stars if I could

    What an amazing property.
    The owners have really outdone themselves, they should be so proud!

    Thank you for sharing such an amazing place

    100% recommend this beautiful luxurious home! As soon as you walk in it feels very homey and that view is next level!! We had a ball fishing and relaxing in the hot tub! The little care package of wine,bread,jam and chocolates was a great touch when walking in for the first time and greatly enjoyed!
    We will 100% be back 👌👌

    Expect the following – Relaxation, peacefulness, private and everything well thought out to cover all needs. Amazing wild life from little birds to the 3 very large 6 foot wingspan(at least) of a Sea Eagle, to wallibies and dolphins in the bay. Your own piece of paradise.

  33. Carlos

    Rachael Trueman

    Wow! This property is truly amazing! It has everything you need, including a magnificent view no matter which way you look. We enjoyed the spa watching the sun flicker off the water while the boats and yachts went by. It’s a great central location to view the surrounding attractions like the Tahune air-walk and Hastings caves, roughly a 45 minute drive to both. It was honestly complete bliss and would recommend 10/10!

  34. Katy

    Rachael Trueman

    We stayed in this beautiful house for a weekend away with 6 girlfriends. Not far from Hobart but far enough to feel away from it all. A gorgeous spot with direct access to the water, amazing views and a spectacular house and furnishings, it was perfect. Very well appointed house, everything we needed for a wonderful time away. The sparkling wine and bread were a lovely touch. We didn’t leave the whole time, too much fun enjoying the spa, the warm fire and the view.

  35. Katinka

    Rachael Trueman

    Location, location! Luxuriously appointed and spacious, with million-dollar views and absolute privacy, including direct access to a private beach. So many thoughtful touches, from robes, beach towels and welcome gifts such as a bottle of Tasmanian sparkling and freshly basked sourdough, to an Esky for your picnic. We live within one hour of this tranquil oasis and will definitely be back – we felt a world away and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you for having us!

  36. Kristen

    Rachael Trueman

    What a place! We had a most wonderful stay. The home is incredible, the views breathtaking. Loved the finishes and attention to detail. The hosts are helpful and generous. Sitting in the spa admiring the beautiful river, sitting on the couch bu the fire surrounded by a stunning vista and seeing the river and trees from bed – you could not hope for more. The place is 5 star +++++++++++

  37. Sarah

    Rachael Trueman

    Fair Winds was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed. The photos really don’t do it justice – the rooms, the views, the whole set-up – it was all fantastic and the only downside was that we couldn’t stay longer. The views really are spectacular – it’s such a gorgeous setting and the drive down from Hobart was breath taking. It was so lovely to be able to get the fire going on a morning and sit with my fresh coffee watching the sun come up and the wee boats trundle up the estuary. We made great use of the hot tub which was such a treat (make sure you use it at night at least once, and switch all the lights off – it’s so special!). When we arrived, Rachael had left us a free bottle of champagne and some fresh bread and local Tassie butter, as well as a full fruit bowl of gorgeous apples. The kitchen also had lots of great things like herbal teas, fresh milk, cupboard staples and herbs and spices, which made cooking there a breeze. The master bedroom was *amazing* – huge bed, the best views over the water and out onto the trees, as well as its own wee deck, and a walk in wardrobe leading to the en suite. We didn’t use the bath as we only had a couple of days there (not long enough!) but it had the best view out onto the trees and down to the private beach. I was there with my partner – now fiance after we got engaged on the deck! and I can definitely recommend it as a wonderful, private and romantic couples retreat. But I’d just as happily go back with a group of friends for a few days. The other rooms off the living room were all a good size and there’s an extra bathroom and separate loo which would allow for a good number of people to stay. We would go back in a heart beat. 12/10!

    Our stay at Fair Winds was perfect. From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed into luxury. A gorgeous space with a gorgeous view. We’ll be back again for sure.

    This place is AMAZING! It felt like our own little piece of paradise. The kids loved exploring down on their own little beach, and the hot tub was a massive winner every night! Highly recommend 🙂

    This little gem in Hobarts south exceeded all of our expectations. It was peaceful, very well set up and was the perfect place to relax and unwind on our honeymoon. We will definitely be back.
