About our Business

Waterside accommodation was started by John Harrison B.Sc B.Ec FCPA and his wife Barbara Harrison B.Ed, Grad. Dip Coun. in 2006 with the purchase of Derwent Retreat. We now have four properties with a third in the Austins Ferry area recently added.

We aim to provide superior water side accommodation in southern Tasmania. One day maybe the world! Our properties are all self contained and we have tastefully decorated them. They have everything you need except food and a bit of that too as we leave yummie chocolates, milk, tea, coffee, salt and spices.

All our properties have a superior view of mountains and the water.

Did You Know?

Accommodation is one of the most misspelled word in the English language. About half the time it is spelled with one c (acommodation) or one m (accomodation) and sometimes with only one c and m (acomodation)!
