This is an immaculate little Wendy house right on the Prosser river. My place is close to Orford with shops, cafe, restaurant and post office just a short walk across the bridge. My place is especially good for honeymoon couples and retirees. There is a barbeque on the verandah and a couple of kayaks for that sunset paddle.
It is small but beautiful. Compact but spacious and luxurious.
You will have absolute water frontage and privacy.

The space

Orford is a small town but buzzing with activity in the Summer. Orford is just 50 minutes from Hobart airport. The little town has all amenities including coffee shop, restaurant, post office and general store, just a short walk across the bridge.

Guest access

Park next to the cottage which is at the end of a private road.
Access is provided by a locked keybox on the front porch. Be sure you have been given the box combination.
There is a private jetty only a few metres away which guests can use.

Interaction with guests

There are two kayaks under the cottage, and two life jackets are kept in the wardrobe. The key to the kayaks is in the key-box along with the front door key. We discourage couples bringing children. A small baby or toddler could share the bedroom with its parents, but the cottage is right on the river with no child-proof balustrade on the back verandah which is over he water.

Other things to note

Orford has opportunities for golf, diving, swimming, bushwalking and fishing

Dove cottage had lovely views of the water from the living room and bathroom. Super relaxing and had excellent communication with Michael prior to our stay.

My partner and I stayed at dove cottage for a couple of nights at the end of our two week Tassie trip and it was the perfect last stop! We arrived to a very clean and beautiful cottage with gorgeous views of the water! We had a very relaxing time and would highly recommend for a quiet stay and if you love a good bathroom, it was simply lovely! Thanks heaps Michael!

Great location and an absolutely divine bath. A problem with an empty BBQ gas bottle was quickly dealt with thanks to property management and maintenance. Well done. If you love being in water (bath with river views) and on the water (literally on the banks of the Prosser) this is the place to be. Orford is a delightful place, the cafe is great. Walks along the cliff top to Spring Beach are fantastic. Would happily return.

We enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in Michael's comfortable and beautifully appointed cottage. The view over the river was spectacular. Great location in easy walking distance to cafe and beaches.
