Freshwater on Berry

“Thankyou so much.  Have had such a relaxing time – just as we wanted.  Accommodation was amazing.”
Andy and Andrew, TAS, May 2013

“Hi Rebecca and Michael,
Thank you for building this beautiful place – we loved it – was like a second honeymoon.  Enjoyed the landscapes too – so much variety. Loved all your little touches to make our stay luxurious.”
Rana and Paul, QLD, March 2013

“We stayed at Freshwater Lodges for 1 week.  Best accommodation we have stayed in.  Well thought out and very homely.  A credit to the owners.  Will be returning.”

“Hi Rebecca, just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful stay over the last two days.  Freshwater on Berry is soooo lovely!  We particularly appreciated the heat being on when we arrived!!!  You’ve done a great job with the build and furnishings, we were really comfortable.  I’m hoping to book for myself over winter for a couple of days of solitude!!”

Freshwater on Jones

“I stayed at Freshwater on Jones with my 3 kids for 1 night.  The kids hated leaving, and so did I – it’s a fabulous accommodation.
It’s brand new, and everything is immaculate.  There’s a huge amount of space, and it’s very well provisioned – all manner of crockery and cookware in the very nicely appointed kitchen, plus the huge barbecue out back.
The very comfy hammock on the deck area is ideal for watching wallabies as they come out in the evening, or staring at the very starry sky once night falls.
Beds are all very comfortable, as is the rest of the furniture.  The wood fire is a particular delight – very cosy – and all set up in advance of arrival, so all we had to do was throw a match in.
Very classy and comfortable accommodation, ideal for families or groups.”
Mike, VIC, January 2013

“Hi Rebecca,
Thank you once again for such a lovely and comfortable stay.  We did have a great time…  We loved everything about the lodge and you have stocked and set it up very well.
All I will say is that we will definitely be back in the future, as it was one of the most relaxing breaks that we have had in a long time (just never long enough!!).”
Nick and Cath, QLD, September 2012

We just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your accommodation.  The cleanliness and attention to detail was outstanding and we would recommend you to anyone visiting Central Tasmania.”
Ian and Pamela, May 2012

“Hello Rebecca,
I just wanted to say thank you and we loved Freshwater Lodges and we will be back to stay for a bit longer later in the year hopefully.
The house is beautiful and very clean which I really appreciated.  And you thought of everything…  It was perfect…  If I could pick that house up and put it on our block at Mt Nelson I would…  It feels very much like a home away from home.  I can’t wait to go back and stay for a bit longer.”
Donna, TAS, March 2012

“Hi Rebecca,
I was meaning to email you to let you know what a lovely time we had, the house was fantastic and we all wished we were staying longer.  We will definitely recommend it to family and friends and would love to stay again.  The kitchen was really well set-up and we thought the house was well designed with the separate living and sleeping areas.  We loved all the windows which made the most of the views of the bush; the house had had a very special ‘luxurious’ feel to it, without being over the top.”
Kate, TAS, May 2011

“Hi Rebecca,
We are back in Melbourne and wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay.  We were all very impressed with the lodge, the design and construction of the building, the quality of furniture and fittings, and the obvious thought and care that has gone in to providing everything we needed for our holiday.”
Diane and Isidro, VIC, March 2011

“Hi Rebecca
We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for our beautiful stay at Freshwater Lodges in Miena.
We travelled around Tasmania for 2 weeks with our two young children and found Freshwater Lodges to be one of the most enjoyable accommodation providers during our travel.
It was great to get away as a family and we felt spoilt for choice between the two double beds offering an alternative between a firm and soft mattress, and for the children to have their own room opposite a bathroom in a place they did not know was brilliant.
The use of space and the design to incorporate the surrounding natural environment was clearly a bonus when we were visited nightly and in the early morning by the gorgeous rock wallabies.
Whilst we did not make use of the DVD selection, the kids loved the games selection so much that we were forced to buy Monopoly for the trip home and they are still asking to play it now.
We had no idea what to expect from Miena and regardless of the area being set in a small fishing village, it is easy to see that Freshwater Lodges offers the best accommodation in the area.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.  We wish you and your husband every success for the future.”
