Cabin Holiday Rental
Welcome to Eagles Rise, as my mother named it! My home is based high up on a hill in Central North TASMANIA, with views of the ocean & yet only 10 minutes drive to the main town, Ulverstone, & the beach and I share this wonderful space with my young Irish Wolfhound Puppy Tippi! More photos are on my fb page 'Eagles Rise - Short Term Accommodation' The accommodation available is a studio room (the cabin) with a kitchen area & your own separate bathroom. A cozy weekend getaway, with the comfiest queen bed! There are dvds available for your use, as well as some well loved books & board games. A bath seat also available on request, should it be needed for an easier shower.

A cozy weekend getaway, with the comfiest queen bed! There are dvds available for your use, as well as some well loved books & board games. A bath seat also available on request, should it be needed for an easier shower. The cabin is attached to the main house with a separate hallway in between & has it's own entrance, as well as West facing doors, allowing the sunsets to flood the cabin with light. There is also a little private garden on the Eastern side of the house, where you can have your morning coffee, or dine under the stars. There is a large BBQ also available for your use. A picnic backpack & camping chairs are available too, should you wish to go somewhere for a picnic! There are also board games, books & DVDs for the rainy days & a set of boules for the sunny ones! :) The property is on 35 acres in a rural area, with many tourist attractions nearby, such as Leven Canyon, Gunns Plains Caves, Wings Wildlife Park, The Nut at Stanley, & Cradle Mountain, which is 80 kilometers away. It's a great spot to base yourself whilst traveling around this area of Tasmania, or even if you are just breezing through!. Being in a pocket of many creative cottage industries, there is a myriad of art galleries to explore, as well as antique stores and lots of little cafes to relax in and drink excellent coffee! Penguin beach is only 15 minutes away, where there is a large Sunday market to browse. The nearest airport is Devonport Airport, 25 minutes drive from the house. Devonport harbour, where the Spirit of Tasmania comes in from Melbourne, is only 20 minutes. A flight from Melbourne to Devonport is around one hour. Launceston Airport is an hour & a half drive away & to Hobart from Devonport, it is around a three & a half to four hours drive. Please note, there is no 2 night minimum stay, however, each stay incurs $25 towards the cleaning/changeover fee :) I look forward to meeting you! :) Kit REVIEWS: - We stayed at Kit’s gorgeous self contained cottage for 2 nights, fantastic location, extremely relaxed and Kit made us feel extremely welcomed indeed, we hope to visit Tassie next year & will certainly be back to Kits accommodation if available, thanks once again Kit for making our stay so FANTASTIC!!! Kind regards Chris & Rod Richardson :-) – (Mitcham, Victoria, Australia) - Kit was a very hospitable & thoughtful host during our stay. the cabin has got everything you need... even if you need to cook like what we did for our two evenings! the surroundings is beautiful and we especially enjoy the drive back to the cabin where we were greeted by the herds & fields which we don't see back in our country.. we really enjoyed our stay & hope to be back in Tasmania some time in future! Thank you Kit!! :))) – Grace & Benny (Singapore) - This was the quintessentially perfect Airbnb experience: beautiful setting, cozy cabin & a warm & welcoming host. We loved it. Thanks Kit. – Tim & Garmisch (Canberra, Australia) - Kit went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Her place is extremely cosy & the bed exceptionally comfortable. Her property is positioned among beautiful rolling hills. If you want a place to get away from it all them look no further. – Kyla (New York) - Believe the hype. This place is a beautiful retreat in the hills, it's only 1.5 hr (picturesque) drive into cradle mountain national park... which made it a perfect alternative to more expensive accommodation closer to the site - aside from that there are plenty of other attractions in the vicinity. Then there is Kit, the super host. Kit always respected our privacy & personal space. An A+ host. – Luke & Tessa (Sydney, Australia) - Kit's home is amazing, I fell in love with it. It was immaculate. Clean. Cosy with plenty of room; everything we needed in our own private space. Kit was & is an amazing woman & a brilliant host. I only wish my stay wasn't just for one night. I could have easily just moved in. – Stefano (Sydney, Australia) - Awesome stay in a clean & very 'holidaylike' accomodation! awesome bed, as many already said, & I'm also not the first saying that we stayed for one night -unfortunately ☹ - Tony (Hamburg, Germany) - What a lovely studio space to stay in. It has this very relaxing country feel to it & is in an excellent spot to drive to all of the north coast & Cradle Mountain. Kit was on the way back from Europe so didn't catch up with her but she was still in contact to make certain everything was okay. Fantastic! – Daniel (Melbourne, Australia) More

About the neighbourhood
I love my neighborhood because of the people in it and the marvelous views that surround me up here. Ian and Susan at the Gawler Shop are friends and two of the most helpful and kind people I know. They are at 170 Gawler Road, on your way up here and open from 7am to 7pm. Petrol is available there too, along with yummy snacks and coffee :) Once here, you might just want to stay cozy in the cabin! However, it's a great place to base yourselves, whilst touring all over the North West and Central Coast of Tasmania. I have an organic vegetable garden, so whatever's growing and available, you are welcome to try! Your own transport is preferable, as the property is ten minutes drive from town and there is so much around here for you to see!
