Absolutely fabulous place – the view is fantastic!  Thoroughly enjoyed the 4 days here.  Thank you for allowing us to share your bit of heaven.  Debbie and Carolyn  NSW

A memorable last night in ‘Tassie’. The best accommodation we stayed in over the 12 days. Total quality. Next time we hope to stay longer.  Thanks for everything. 

Hugh and Silvana

This is the best accommodation we have booked so far. It has the warmth of a house, impeccable, fully-equipped of course the views leaves me stuck for words. My 10 and 12 year olds were entertained and that’s important. I will definitely be marketing this accommodation to friends back in Melbourne.

This is the last stop in a tour around Tasmania and the best accommodation by far. If we had known the accommodation here was this good we would have arranged to stay more than 1 night.  Don Anne Dave & Jules,  Perth W.A.

Thank you for providing us with a beautiful view and peaceful surroundings. The accommodation is wonderful and unusual. It’s not every day you have a whole two storey house to yourself when you are away from home. Keep up the great work. Unfortunately we are here for one night, but it is a well enjoyed stay. What a beautiful house and spectacular, mind blowing views. Much appreciated. Thank you again.   Amanda

Great place and the area is too good to see in 3 days!!! 

Ken and Linda.  Barrow-in-Furness UK

A truly delightful place, we would like to thank you so much for sharing your wonderful part of God’s creation with us. The water was a great attraction for Josh, and it was fun to watch the swans each day. This delightful little home was so central to everything we needed and we will be taking a very good report home with us. We hope to be back again. God willing.  Greg and Becky Reid, Prospect Vale.

Many thanks for the view. A well equipped house which we have enjoyed for the last 2 days, sorry we have to move on but only in Tasmania for 10 days. Best wishes.  Julie, Ronnie and Maurice. Somerset UK.

Our third stay this year and Paradise just seems to get better and better.  Walks included Fortescue to Bivouac Bay, Remarkable to Crescent and the top of Mount Brown and Shipsterns Lookout.  A pleasant game of golf and another tour of Port Arthur Historic Site for more photographs.  We will be back; Cape Raoul and Huay to do. 

Rupert and Fay.  Lower Snug Tasmania

Thank you for a great house to chill out, fabulous views, comfortable, plenty of room to spread out. Nice homely welcoming feeling lacking in other stays. You have made us very happy.  Margaret, Brian, Heather and Darryl.

Wonderful place! Woke up to blue skies and serenity. The log fire was a treat while we enjoyed some take-out and a movie. Hope to be back in the future.  Aimee and Damian.  Calgary, Canada and Yackeindandah, Vic.

Excellent. We had a great time. Best house we have stayed in ever.

When we come back this way we will definitely stay here again. Lovely place to stay, very comfortable and very quiet, great views. Burilda Waters has everything you need for the couple to the family. Thanks.  Lee and Angelene

Beautiful house and amazing view. Thank you.  Nick and Steph

We are a family of 5 and we were impressed with the complete facility that comes with the house like electric blankets, kitchen sets, awesome tv, dvd player and dvds. My parents fell in love with the scenery and friendly neighbour horses. The kids love the view, it is breathtaking. Overall this has been one of the best family trips we ever had. You guys are so lucky to own this beautiful house.  Indonesian family

  What a week in Tassie, Mt Wellington, Tahine Airwalk, Russel Falls & Port Arthur. Had a great time and topped it off with a stay at Burilda Waters. Excellent accommodation and presentation. It gets a 5 star from us.  Thank you.  Bob & Chris  S.A. 

Absolutely perfect for our family.  Very close to everything and awesome view.  Has everything we needed or wanted and clean and comfortable.  

Richard, Katrina, Nicholas & Erin.  Sydney

Like others before us, we found this “home” to be ideal!  Beautiful view, plenty of light (even on a gloomy day) and fully stocked with everything one could possibly need or want….and also a clutter free and exceptionally clean living space.  Thank you! 

Sisters – Sara & Linda USA

What a beautiful house and what a wonderful view over the bay.  We saw a lot of specific Tasmanian birds.  We are from Holland.

Great place to stay, very comfortable, only wish we could stay longer.  The Summers

One night was just not long enough!  Really gorgeous house & location.  The Marshalls

What a great spot!  Could have stayed much longer – loved the tranquillity and great outlook.  Thanks.  Kathy & Dave QLD

What a lovely place to call “home” for the past week.  We have thoroughly enjoyed the Tasman Peninsula and were comfortable in the knowledge that we were coming back to a space that felt like our own, every evening, to watch the ever changing spectacle of the bay view.  Thanks for sharing this lovely house with us.  Leanne & Maris  SA

We couldn’t have asked for better…..the outlook, the house & the flat screen TV for the NRL Grand final.  Will be recommending your house for anyone coming this way.  Thank you!  Andrew, Sue, Lauren, Clare.  Sydney.

Great house!  Very convenient & very clean.  Well equipped!  We had a very relaxing & comfortable stay here.  Great value – the best self contained accommodation we have stayed in.  You should be very proud of your property.  Will definitely be back & will recommend it to our friends.  The eco-cruise around Tasman Island in not to be missed.  Levy family.  Melbourne

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful place to stay.  The view is just amazing!  I will be recommending you to family and friends back home.  Elyse

This house is a fantastic place!  The view is lovely and the house is cosy.  We feel at home!  We had an enjoyable stay and will recommend family and friends who are coming to Port Arthur.  Bernard & Xiauying

Hello, and thank you for the wonderful clean place to stay…this is the best one we have stayed in so far “and we have stayed in a lot”.  The fire gives a lovely ambience. The view is lovely and I have sat and watched the birds.  When we were on a cruise at Port Arthur we could look down and see the house.  I hope very much to be back and will tell everyone at home about this.  Jasmine, Josie + John

You have a fantastic place here, we were all thrilled.  Thank you for sharing it and also thanks for the safety gate, it did come in handy with our little one.  We’ll be back and would happily recommend Burilda Waters to others.  Brendon, Kara, Jack & Irene  QLD

Burilda Waters offered us all we expected; a comfy lounge, cosy kitchen, great view, romantic fireplace and huge TV.  Explored the Tasman Peninsula and had a perfect autumn break.  We will highly recommend.  Family Slee  Adelaide 

Our “Shangrila” in Tasmania.  We have enjoyed our stay here and the hospitality of Burilda Waters was most welcoming and comfortable.  Thank you for making our holiday so wonderful.  We will be back.  John & Christine.  Brisbane

Burilda Waters is a lovely inviting place to stay. The scenery outside your doorstep is breathtaking. The sunset and sunrise over the water is something you should not miss! It has been a pleasure to stay here.  Damien and Eva, Melbourne Victoria.

This is our last stop in a tour round Tasmania and the best accommodation by far.  If we had known the accommodation here was this good we would have arranged to stay for more than one night.  Den, Anne, Dave & Jules.  Perth WA

What a great place to stay.  One day is not long enough to appreciate this wonderful home and surrounds.  Hope we will be back some day.  Jill and Tony.  Dapto NSW

Lovely! We are here in Australia from the US.  So many single nights in B&B and hotel.  This “home away from home” was absolutely wonderful.  Jim Boyle and Dianne Verty

Fantastic accommodation with spectacular views, we could stay here forever.  Many thanks.  Lynn & John Brown.  Durham UK

The perfect start to the new year.  This has been our favourite place to stay in all of Tasmania; three days could have drifted into weeks.  Thank you. 

Jacqui, Howard, Ashe & Con.  Melbourne

For someone very recently emerged from the depths of an English Winter this is an idyllic spot beyond our expectations and imagination.  Thank you.  The Grinkys

 A beautifully appointed home with every attention to detail.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Burilda Waters.  Ah, the Serenity!  Peter and Joyce Fleming.  Melbourne Vic.

What a heavenly spot to spend a few days relaxing.  We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity so much.  We loved the deck and shared some beautiful meals cooked on the BBQ.  Tony, Michelle and family.  New Norfolk Tasmania

Thank you for sharing your wonderful abode with us.  It was such a great home away for home – relaxing, comfortable and supplied with all the amenities we could want.  Most definitely a place we’d want to return to.  Rich & Barb.  Portland, Oregon USA

Everything I thought it would be and more.  Clean, comfy, warm and a great location.  The only bad part of staying here is having to leave.  I don’t want to go home!  Jane, Shelby and Zoe.  Burnie Tasmania

This is a lovely spot and the house is peaceful and comfortable.  We enjoyed the wood fire, the deck and the views over the water.  With so many great walks nearby, even three days was not enough time, so we will plan to return! 

Wayne, Greg and Rebekkah.  Natone Tasmania

What amazing accommodation!  We absolutely loved it here, warm, cosy and comfortable!  Also loved waking up to a beautiful sunrise and view.  The Kokky’s & Kiwi’s

This week has been great.  Everything that we could ever want.  I’d love to have stayed longer and come back one day.  I’ll stop now before crying – I am so sad at having to leave.  Till next time…..  Sally.  New Town  Tasmania

Unfortunately only stayed in this beautiful place for one night.  Done a great Ghost Tour at Port Arthur and plan on exploring the Peninsula today.  Will be back to Burilda Waters in the future for a longer stay!  Corey, Sarah, Chris and Clare

One of the best equipped places we have stayed at.  Two nights here is not long enough.  Loved the serenity here and balcony view.  Pam & Greg.  NSW

We’ve had a very nice stay in this wonderful cottage.  The view is outstanding.  It’s also amazing how close it is to everything in this wonderful part of the world.  Thank you for an outstanding place to end our holiday.  The Langmeads.  WA

Best place we have stayed in Tassy, only regret is that we only stayed one night.  We will stay again the next time we visit Port Arthur.  Thank you for the great villa.  Lina and Woy

What a shame that we only have one night here at your beautiful house.  This place is absolutely beautiful – so peaceful!  Gorgeous views, comfy well equipped house.  Wish we could stay longer to soak it all up!  To quote my three boys when they walked in, “Wow! This is actually awesome”.  Russ, Jo, Lachie, Jed and Louis.  (from Bendigo)

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Burilda Waters.  It is absolutely magnificent – serene, peaceful and picturesque.  Pity we only spent one night here – wish it was longer.  Did the Ghost Tour at Port Arthur which was a tad spooky but still managed a good night’s sleep.  All in all, it was a great and memorable trip to Tassie.  Roland and Ingrid.  Melbourne

Absolutely fabulous place – the view is fantastic!  Thoroughly enjoyed the four days here.  Thank you for allowing us to share your bit of heaven.  Debbie and Carolyn.  NSW 

We were welcomed to a lovely view and our very own pair of black swans. A very well appointed unit – we especially appreciated the dishwasher and the coded key lock enabling independent access. We really appreciated the reading matter about Port Arthur and found the book about The Isle of the Dead fascinating. 

Noel and Anne, Beecroft Sydney.

Hello and thank you for a wonderful clean place to stay.  This is the best one we have stayed in so far and we’ve stayed in a lot. The fire gives off a lovely ambience and a nice warm feel. The weather has been cold but OK. It has just started to rain but we are going anyway. The view is lovely. I have been sitting and watched the birds. It was also lovely that when we went on a cruise at Port Arthur we could look down and see the house. I hope very much to be back again and will tell everyone back home about this.  Josie and John from the United Kingdom


The peace and tranquillity after just a few days on the road was great. The space and the trio of swans improved the sense of peace. A longer stay than overnight would be great.  Stan and Denise, Bendigo Vic

    This is total luxury. Every home comfort with exceptional views as well! Could have stayed here much longer, but holidays did not allow.
    Many thanks to Richard for his friendly manner and lovely gifts.

    We had two great days at Burilda Waters, it made our visit to Port Arthur very enjoyable.
    The house is ideal from which to visit the Post Arthur site and the sunrise over the lake was beautiful, with the mist and the swans.
