About our Business

Waterside accommodation was started by John Harrison and his wife Barbara Harrison in 2006 with the purchase of Derwent Retreat. Barb died in 2014 and John has now retired from the business which is now run by Frankie Forsyth.

We aim to provide superior 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 inclding all linen. We even leave spices, salt and pepper and some basic foodstuffs.

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

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)!
