    ideal get away to do the South bay cape day walk and come back to a lovely warm place where you can relax in the spa and go for a walk at the beach. The sound of the waves at night is divine.

    Really nice touch to set the fire for us. Loved that the heater and spa here were on when we arrived (thank you). The spa made the first night pretty magic. House had everything we needed.

    beautiful views. stunning location. what else could you want. The fire and the warm outdoor spa was absolutely a winner for us.
    The kids had a blast. Walking distance to view the waves at the beach.
    Will definitely go back!

    Gorgeous views from this lovely house – four bedrooms with comfy beds (one is downstairs and only accessible by external stairs, but we enjoyed the privacy) and a big well-stocked kitchen. No reception, but that’s not a problem with free Wifi provided. We appreciated the folder with so much information about the house and the local area. Our children particularly loved the cupboard full of board games. We had a great stay.

    A wonderful relaxing stay and loved relaxing in the hot tub, coming indoors to the warmth of the log fire and finally falling asleep to the sound of the waves breaking on to the beach.

    Great and spacious place to stay for family or couples. Amazing 180 degree views of the bay across the road from the beach and central location to explore Tassie’s south. Friendly host.

    Richard Chalmers

    Wonderful place, clean, amazing views. The hot tub was a massive hit. The beach across from the house is beautiful. Just remember that Southport doesn’t have shops so bring everything you need to cook, but the kitchen is modern and and has everything you need for a great meal. I will be definitely coming back.

    The most amazing location, listening to the waves crashing along the beach at night was just awesome. It was perfect – no other words to describe it.
    We will be back – Southport and its surrounds has so much to offer.

    Everything that we needed was there and it was very comfortable. The location and view was amazing. The jacuzzi was lovely and clean which made the stay very relaxing.

    What a beautiful place! The house was impeccable – clean, stylish with lovely furniture and furnishings. The spa outside was a treat on those clear Tassie nights. Extra thoughtful details like spa towels and a coffee machine made this a relaxing place to stay – a real home away from home. It was a joy to sit outside at the table on the front deck and watch the gentle blue waters of Southport beach… or you could snuggle into the comfy lounge and do the same. Highly recommended – with 3 large bedrooms upstairs, there is plenty of space!

    A delightful home stay with stylish features & the unlimited view. Serenity found! A refreshing getaway in a very stylish & comfortable house. I will be back to soak up the lush view & enjoy the sanctuary of the Rock Lobster house in the near future. This is a winner!

    Southport is one of Tassie’s hidden secrets and Rock Lobster is the perfect location to start your adventure in Tasmania’s southern most town. Stunning accommodation, great location. Clean, neat and tidy. Could not fault! The contact from Rachael and her team is second to none and they were very accommodating for our needs (Our group also stayed in their Seaview property).
