If you are looking for somewhere special to stay in one of the most ruggedly beautiful areas of Tasmania look no further than Wildwood Retreat!
Wildwood Retreat is a beautifully appointed fully self contained one bed luxury apartment that offers city comfort in a stunning rural setting!
Wildwood retreat lies in its own private kingdom surrounded by 50 acres of pristine native Eucalypt forest (on 3 sides) in the bucolic idyll of Koonya that lies on the banks of cascade Bay on the spectacular Tasman Peninsula.
The retreat enjoys stunning views over rolling pasture to Cascade Bay and Norfolk Inlet with mountain backdrop. A 'perfect picture box scene' where the light and mood changes constantly!
The retreat adjoins Wildwood (our home) BUT is fully self contained and enjoys its own private driveway, garden area and entry so guests can relax and come and go at their leisure. Importantly, there are only two of us the vast majority of the time and so its very peaceful ..... you won't even know we are there!
The retreat bedroom is extremely spacious with floor to ceiling windows. There is a Kingsize Bed, BIR, contemporary desk and leather recliner. The bedroom also has a generous sized ensuite with underfloor heating, quality towels and soaps, heated towel rails, free standing bath and walk in shower. A hairdryer and robes are also provided. NOTE: The retreat is designed as a couples retreat however does have a double sofa bed in the upper level living area for an occasional extra guest. Though we provide a mattress topper for the sofa bed it will not offer the same level of comfort as a proper bed.
There is a beautiful modern stainless steel and timber spiral staircase in the retreat lobby/entry area that leads guests up to the spacious contemporary open plan living/kitchen/dining area on the second level.
The upper level living area has floor to ceiling windows that offer spectacular views of pasture, pristine forest and Cascade Bay in the near distance. Guests will feel as if they are literally floating amongst the treetops - a perfect place to relax, de-stress and commune with nature!
The kitchen has stone bench tops, quality stainless steel appliances including a Smeg Oven and cooktop, a coffee machine, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and provisions include quality coffee and tea plus a generous range of pantry basics.

We have included heaps of information and recommendations of things to do and places to visit and are most happy to talk further to our guests about that when they arrive if they wish! Our guests comfort, privacy and happiness however is of the utmost importance to us! If we are here we would of course love to greet you but we are often away or working and so this may not always be possible. If we miss your arrival we won't disturb you unnecessarily, but please send us a text (or we will text you) to ensure that you are happy and that you have everything you need! We want absolutely to promote a sense of peace and seclusion and privacy at Wildwood and appreciate some guests may not wish to interact! If guests do - that is fabulous too, but we leave that decision in our guests hands!

We are battling the native fur balls with respects to our new landscaping and the extended area on the land and driveway in is still being landscaped, however this will NOT impact on your stay, private areas or enjoyment of the property.
We are fairly relaxed. However would be very grateful if guests could be considerate and abide by the following guidelines:
Shoes off in lobby please (we live in a rural location and don't want mud/dirt or wildlife poo carried throughout the house).
If guests could please ensure they return keys to key safe and secure the property on departure that would be appreciated. No need to set alarm if we are home.
Breakage/damage/loss - We are reasonable and expect the odd broken glass or plate or mug, but if other items are broken please let us know! Our insurance doesn't cover accidental damages or breakages. Sadly therefore guests will be responsible for replacement/repair costs. We would be grateful for guests' honesty too in relation to alerting us to any issues so we can replace/fix them for the next incoming guests.
We would be grateful if guests could please try to leave the retreat in the condition they find it. Additional fees may apply.
Guests are responsible for their own safety whilst exploring the garden and surrounding paddock/forest. We live in a natural rural environment. The ground is uneven, there are open rock terraces, wildlife and trees that occasionally shed limbs.
No outdoor fires without permission. Wildwood is in a high bushfire risk area and surrounded by forest!
We would also be grateful if guests didn't remove any of the DVD's, books, magazines or pages from magazines.
If guests unwittingly pack something belonging to Wildwood please return it as soon as possible.
Please let us know if you spot anything out of date in the retreat pantry - we do try to check but occasionally miss things, particularly if guests leave an item. The pantry provisions are for guests to enjoy.
Rubbish: Please remove all rubbish and put in the bins outside. If weather terrible then please leave in lobby and we will take it from there ...
Bedroom candles: These are not real. They are battery operated. Some guests have tried to light them mistaking them for real candles.
Thank you so much for your consideration:-)
