    We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the lovely comfortable home.
    The walking tracks are well marked with many beautiful vistas of bush and water.
    A very restful stay and Tina and Robert were great hosts.

    We stayed 2 nights for our honeymoon and we wish we stayed longer but we had a big itinerary for 8 days! The 2 nights in Dover really stood out even though we stayed in hotspots like Coles Bay, Bruny Island & Hobart – we highly recommend stopping in at the Rum River Lodge for lunch or dinner it was such a unique find and the Hasting Caves while in the area! But the best part was the walking trail the owners of the property have created. We rate it one of the greatest walks we’ve ever done, such diverse landscapes and to have it exclusively just reminded us how lucky we really area to visit such special country. Travelling all the way from Sunshine Coast Queensland and we are so grateful we booked this place to be apart of our honeymoon memory. The house is the cosiest homely well thought out place with the best vibes ever surrounded by absolute peace and privacy. We even walked into such thoughtful gifts, The whole experience 11/10

    We came down to turn off and relax! This was an amazing spot! Perfect little house in amazing surrounds and a beautiful way to spend a long weekend with someone special. We had such a good time. Highly recommended.

    This was our 3rd visit to celebrate my partner’s 53rd birthday. She and I always enjoy it here, different walks, things to see and do, but more importantly, to relax and unwind. we have visited here in both Summer and Winter, and the fireplace is the best in winter, while the cool breezes flowing through the house in summer allow you to take in the forest aromas and relax. The abundance of wildlife and bird sounds just make the stay unforgettable.

    We were blown away by the setting, the place, the Boathouse.
    great attention to detail, had everything we needed. the place was pre-warmed for us and kindling ready to light the fire. Perfect.

    Completely in awe of this Airbnb. Absolutely beautiful. We loved the scenic view from the balcony, spending time in nature and the wildlife. Every decoration, the details and the small touches makes this place so special. Peaceful, quiet, private and immersed in nature! We can’t wait to stay again! Was the perfect way to spend Christmas!
    Rachael is very quick to responded and nothing to too much hassle!

    This was our second visit, the last being in the summer, this time in the winter, and we were not disappointed! We felt totally relaxed warmed by the wood fire, the serenity of the bush, and the sound of rain falling while sleeping.
    We’ll definitely be visiting again!

    The perfect place to spend our honeymoon. Highly recommend for couples looking for a luxurious stay. The property also offers amazing private walking tracks which was a real bonus. The hot tub was to die for. Attention to detail was great and the boathouse had everything we needed.

    From the moment we opened the big red gate we felt like we were home. Our very own private dream home. The quality decor made this stay extra special. Deliberately fitted out to the little unexpected it made us feel like we were special. The views from the HOT hot-tub were soaked up for hours and at night you are reminded again what a gem the Boathouse is. The well primed fire place with ample wood, the absolute silence and the STARS. Our 3 night stay will stay with us for a long time. Clearly we fell in love with the Boathouse. Thank you so much.

    We stayed in the Boat House and it was superb. Everything in the cabin was high-spec and it much better than we were expecting. The view from the deck across the water is lovely and it’s a very short stroll down the track to the rock-beach looking toward Dover. The spa in the deck was the icing on the cake. Watching a sunset in the spa with a glass from the bottle of complementary champagne was something we’ll never forget. Amenities, fixtures etc: excellent. Location: excellent.

  28. Cristian Mendoza

    Absolutely incredible space, very happy. Amazingly well appointed and beautiful location.

    I couldn’t recommend a more suitable place to enjoy the serene winter sunset, with people special to you. We got engaged here, and were enthralled by the property and its design and styling, as well as the location and surrounding nature. Beautiful.

    The Boat House – a tranquil haven. We loved our time at the Boat House. Spacious, private, everything you need for a very comfortable and luxe stay. Perfectly built as a hideaway for a couple. The bush tracks are left natural so you can enjoy a leg stretch in wilderness right from your doorstep.

    Thank you for sharing!
