    Comfortable cottage

    My friend and I enjoyed our brief stay at Pettit cottage and found it to be very clean and comfortable. The beds were good and we appreciated the wood heater at night. It was the winter solstice and the night temperatures were cold so we did find the cottage very cold in the mornings,

    Just Lovely

    Stayed at Pettit Cottage at the end of our nine day holiday in Tasmania. Delighted, with this pretty little home from home. Everything was thought of, plenty of bedding, blankets, towels, warm and cosy with heaters, wood fire and electric blankets. The house was clean, so comfortable with extra touches like flowers and little home cooked biscuits. Also central to town, beach and great fish and chip shop!

    A very cosy and comfortable place to stay

    A lovely cottage with a cosy log fire, the lovely fresh flowers were a welcome delight, easy walking distance to Main Street. Nice place for a family with things to entertain small children, it was just my husband and I so plenty of room.

    A gorgeous house

    We had a lovely stay at Petitt Cottage. A very spacious property with a huge lounge/kitchen/diner and three good sized bedrooms. We so enjoyed sitting on the veranda which is really pretty with wisteria and roses winding around it. The kitchen is well equipped, bed soooo comfy. Having a dryer was unexpected, and very useful. It was great to have Port and cookies left for us too, a very nice touch. All in all a great place to stay, and the local hotel serves a really good dinner.

    Perfect for Our Visit

    Property was great size for our visit purpose - plenty of room, very comfortable throughout, all amenities provided (and quite a few extras thrown in, too). Quiet location, parking fine, and the wood fire a lovely bonus! Excellent, communicative property managers, Pat and Bob, were most helpful and responsive. The property and visit experience was A1.
