I loved the comfy bed, the art on the walls and all the beautiful books and magazines. I am also very impressed with the handmade furniture its all so beautifully made. We cooked some trevalla and enjoyed gorgeous Tasmanian Pirie. I walked for hours along the many sandy paths and loved the sounds of the crashing waves. I’d love to return for more.

arthouse… what a magical oasis from this crazy world! We immersed ourselves in the ambience you have created… thank you so very much for allowing us to share your dream…

Thank you SO much we had a lovely time. We felt like we were sneaking into a beautiful gallery of your work and staying over after the guards went home.

Tucked away near the most beautiful coast it has been a treat to be so comfortably ensconced with the art as a sensory bonus!

Brilliant turquoise sea. bracing swims. warm wooden deck. sky paintings. daydreaming. fairy penguins. attenborough ears. open spaces. roaring seas. dark brooding clouds. getting wet in the rain. listening to the frog symphony. cocooning sleeps. slow mornings. brilliant orange rocks… leaving rejuvenated and whole.


This was my third visit to arthouse and I was curious to see if I would feel the same this time – I was not disappointed… arthouse continues to inspire, enthrall and rejuvenate the senses. Thank you for sharing this wonderful house with us, we will return.


Memories of my stay – walks along the beach at sunrise and sunset inhaling the sea mist, searching for shells, exploring the rock pools, the unique orange coloured lichen on the rocks, the sound of the waves, the feel of the sand between my toes – all these experiences instantly carried me back to my childhood and a carefree life with not a care in the world. Time spent at arthouse takes me to a place within myself, where I feel completely relaxed, rejuvenated, refreshed and ready to head back off to my city life.


We loved the extra touches – crispy sheets, luxurious towels, beauty products, candles, your diverse and inspiring library of books and magazines, masses of DVD’s and the kitchen pantry generously stocked with the staples. Our first night’s hastily thrown together supper was enhanced by some of your generous pantry goodies. We fell asleep each night to the sounds of the sea beckoning us to rise early and explore the surroundings once again!

Such a stylish house that gave us all comforts – beautiful colours, furnishings, sounds ( the ocean) + space. Also thanks for providing the invitations to make ourselves at home and to have fun….just great.

We absolutely loved the house and the surroundings! We enjoyed the barbequing, the sunrise and the 50 steps to the bay. We regret that we only had 1 day in the house and should have planned for a longer stay. It was definitely a fantastic place to hide rom the hustle & bustle from where we come from. Thank you!
