Essentially Tas

Accommodation | Huon Valley and Far South

There are so many incredibly beautiful places in Tasmania that are at the top of every itinerary.

But have you ever wondered where the locals go to switch off, relax, and reconnect with nature?

For many of us – myself included – it is the orchards, wineries, and markets of the Huon Valley, and the solitude, hidden coves, and quiet walking trails of the Far South where we escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives.

There is a sense of quiet authenticity here that I am yet to discover anywhere else in Tasmania, and it is also where you’ll find some of the island’s most memorable hideaways from which to explore this fantastic part of the world.

There are so many to choose from, and I would understand if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed – but that is where the Essentially Tas will make your travel planning a piece of cake!

The Essentially Tas team live in the area and all love working hand-in-hand with local accommodation providers to curate the perfect selection of properties for visitors to the Huon Valley and Far South.

It doesn’t matter what style of holiday you are looking for, or your budget, I can guarantee that there will be a little gem with your name on it.

All of the Essentially Tas hand-picked properties are self-contained, making it super easy for families and couples to keep their holiday costs to a minimum by picking up provisions at Huonville or Dover and self-catering. Many are located right by the water’s edge as well, meaning less time worrying about the whole pack/drive/unpack routine, and more time spent with your loved ones enjoying the beautiful location.

Couples in search of a romantic escape have some incredible options available to them as well!

Secluded shack hideaways, luxury cottages under soaring eucalypts, and some of the best coastal views are all possible – with many including a roaring wood fire or jacuzzi to take the edge off a brisk Tassie night under a canopy of stars.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m planning a holiday I sometimes find it frustrating to have to go to a dozen different websites to get a feel for what is available in a particular region, before even starting the booking process.

I also often wonder whether the owners of some of the big accommodation websites really know the region intimately – and whether they are blindly promoting anyone, regardless of quality or customer service?

This is where Essentially Tas is so different to all the other websites out there, while making life really easy for you at the same time.

As a local herself, Rachael knows the best places to base yourself throughout the Huon and Far South, and the strong relationships she has built with local accommodation owners mean that you can book direct through the Essentially Tas website knowing that you are getting the best possible rate.

There is plenty of handy information available on the website for all the properties – including ideas for things to see and do in the region – but if you have any questions at all, it is reassuring to know that Rachael and her team of friendly locals are always on hand to listen to your needs and to connect you with your perfect holiday escape.

If you are planning your Tasmania holiday and are wondering whether you should spend time in the Huon Valley or Far South of Tasmania, then I can’t recommend Essentially Tas highly enough as one of your most essential and trusted resources.

One of the best accommodation experiences we’ve had - and we’ve had many! Spotlessly clean, perfect location and excellent amenities. Loved every minute, Rachael was an excellent communicator and we had a great 10 days in this stunning part of the world, thank you!
