Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This cottage is one of the earliest buildings on the east coast of Tasmania, being built in around 1832. Recently restored, The Surveyors Cottage has an instant appeal with its high ceilings and beautiful light from the Georgian windows. The open fire is the star attraction - so warm and welcoming. An intimate space for two people, within easy walking distance of most local eateries & shops. Unlimited wifi if the fire isn’t enough to keep you happy.

The space
The cottage is decorated with antique furniture befitting its time frame, a very comfy sofa and television.
The bed is super comfy, we use quality pure cotton linens, Australian wool quilts & pillows, and of course an electric blanket. There is a wall heater in the bedroom for your sleeping comfort. The new en-suite is open plan beside the bedroom - please check the photos - if you like privacy in the bathroom this may not be the space for you!
A fridge, microwave, sandwich press and toaster are provided together with a selection of loose leaf teas, and of course a china teapot. We offer a complimentary gin & tonic on arrival, a selection of condiments, a jug of milk and a few snacks.
The main room of the cottage has a wall heater, plus the gorgeous wood fire. We supply kindling and fire lighters, plus a basket of wood in the entry. Unlimited wifi.

Also on this property is our other Airbnb ‘Miss Moyes’ - great if you are two couples travelling together.

Location

St Helens, Tasmania, Australia

Our cottage is centrally located, and in walking distance to restaurants, cafes and local shops. Nina’s Restaurant is directly opposite our cottage; the post office is next door. The chemist is two doors down, and the news agency 3 doors down. Our Lifebuoy Cafe is 200 metres south at 29 Quail Street. We offer a 20% discount to our guests.
We highly recommend Furneaux Restaurant (recently voted best Regional Restaurant in Australia) which is a 5 minute drive south, or a 15 minute easy walk. The Bayside Hotel offers a good pub meal. Skipper’s at the waterfront, or The Wharf offer local seafood. The East Coast Providore is opposite the cottage and has great Tasmanian produce and meals you can heat in the cottage.

My family moved to St Helens in 1966 from a dairy farm just an hour north. I have lived and worked in the area all my life. I’m now semi-retired after owning retail businesses in the area until early 2021. I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world. It’s lovely to be able to welcome people from all over the world to sample the paradise we live in.
