We love sharing our bush home and our simple healthy lifestyle, and showing people the good things Tasmania has to offer. We live in a stone and timber house on 55 acres of Wildlife Reserve, only 7 klm from Deloraine - on the way to Cradle Mountain, and 45 minutes from the Devonport ferry.

The space

We are only 7 minutes up a country road from Deloraine, and central to the north of Tasmania with both Launceston and Devonport 45 minutes away. Deloraine is a beautiful town, and the gateway to some good bushwalking. Cradle Mountain is a 1 hour 45 minutes country drive from here. We have the woodfire going in winter, cosy and warm.

The guest room is warm and light, north facing with French doors to outside, next to a country kitchen. You are welcome to use the kitchen or barbecue to cook meals yourself. We have a three person Far Infrared sauna available for a small fee, towels for sauna and shower (or hot bath) are supplied. A TV is provided with many movies for guests to watch in bed at night.

We love a good conversation, we love people. But we also respect people's need for privacy, and the need to relax and enjoy the quiet. We also offer alternative health therapies - detox Far Infrared saunas, healthy eating programs/weight loss, and Therapeutic Essential Oil massages.

We are 'alternative' in our lifestyle, so we don't have a microwave or a dishwasher, and are fairly down to earth and natural. We do love our uncomplicated life here, and love to share what we have with our guests - and do enjoy hearing their stories and ideas on life in return.

This whole area has a great community spirit, with a large population of artists and craft people living locally. Deloraine is a lovely place to spend some time, but is not far to Cradle Mountain and the Marakoopa Caves or other day trips. There are lots of short day walks in the area and interesting places to visit.

This is also a chemical free household, suitable for those with allergies or chemical sensitivities etc; we drink and shower in Tasmanian rainwater (no fluoride or chlorine) and use no chemicals to clean, and our food is mainly organic local produce. We hope you will come and enjoy our simple 'down to Earth' lifestyle.

Guest access

Our guest room is spacious and light, the kitchen is available to use for cooking meals and the dining room for eating or just relaxing. The lounge room is available to use, having a big TV and the wood fire is quite cosy. The bathroom is shared with us. The grounds outside with seating and BBQ area are for general use.

Interaction with guests

We are always around and can help with planning out your visits to local attractions. We are both qualified in doTERRA Aromatouch therapeutic Essential Oil massages. We offer a 45 minute oils massages (Aromatouch Technique) for $45 - very relaxing and healthy.

Wow, so much more than just a place to stay. Matt and Tanya are great hosts, warm and welcoming, with a beautiful home which they shared with us. If you are travelling in this part of Tasmania this is the place to stay!

Matt and Tanya made us so welcome and it was wonderful to share their home even for just one night and great to chat. My son stayed in a tent suspended between trees - he loved it! Fantastic walk in the woods with the dog in the morning.

Response from Matt And Tanya:
Thanks Laura. Yes the tree tent is a hit, it's so cosy and quiet out there, glad he loved it. It's good that we could provide a comfortable stay for your family on such a busy schedule, travelling can be exhausting. I hope you all enjoyed Cairns, and the lovely warm weather up there. Take care, Matt and Tanya.

Matt and Tanya are such lovely, interesting people and their house is incredible! The grounds are stunning and I could have spent my whole holiday just sitting in the garden! We slept in the tree tent and it was such a unique experience, I highly recommend it!

Response from Matt And Tanya:
We really enjoyed having you guys here too. Thanks so much for your positive feedback, the tree tent is proving to be popular, as it is a unique experience. It gives us a lot of satisfaction to see our guests have enjoyed their stay with us. Take care both of you, Matt and Tanya.

Lovely home, very friendly hosts, loved the surrounding scenery. The only downside was that my bed was quite uncomfortable (the pullout sofa bed has solid metal bars going across your back). Great spot to get away, and will hopefully come back to Tasmania in the near future.
Matt And Tanya User ProfileMatt And Tanya is a superhost.
Response from Matt And Tanya:
It was good having you and your friends stay Vanessa, I'm glad you found it peaceful here. Sorry you found the spare bed uncomfortable, I must look at what happened with you sleeping on it - we have had many guests over the past 18 months sleep on it and all have said they slept well. But I will look into it. Take care, Matt and Tanya.

Response from Matt And Tanya:
Thanks Isabel, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We just might meet up again if we do go to the UK - and we can sample your traditional English brekkie. Take care, Matt and Tanya.

Matt & Tanya are brilliant hosts in a wonderful bush setting. I strongly recommend them to any traveller but especially those interested in sustainable living and alternative health. I throughly enjoyed the extensive talks that I had with them and would certainly stay again.
Matt And Tanya User ProfileMatt And Tanya is a superhost.
Response from Matt And Tanya:
Thanks Paul, I hardly felt like a host as you fitted in so well, yes we had some brilliant conversations. I learn much from other people too. I really hope you can return to Tassie some time, and put some of those 'sustainability' principles into practice. Take care, Matt and Tanya.

We both appreciate the good life that Tasmania has to offer, and love the peace and quiet of the bush. We are into alternative health and well being, and offer a sanctuary for the 'weary traveler' or those that are in need of a place to escape from the pressures of everyday life…
