Romantic couples’ retreat in Gardners Bay

Moon River is a large, modern, luxurious, 2-bedroom apartment in the gorgeous Gardners Bay area, close to Cygnet. You’ll find us just 45 minutes south of Hobart, nestled in the Huon Valley.

Our fully-furnished, well-appointed home away from home is set in three acres of land with panoramic 180-degree views over the bay to the stunning Hartz Mountain range and the surrounding countryside.

Moon River’s private rural location makes it the perfect luxurious retreat for couples. In the summer, relax on the private deck and take in the spectacular sunsets. Stay cosy on winter nights by snuggling up in front of the roaring log fire.

At all times of the year, you can relax in style, take in the amazing view and catch a glimpse of pademelons, wallabies and possums in the grounds.


You’ll find us just 4km from Cygnet (full address will be given after booking):

This spacious property comes with everything anyone could possibly need and more than you would expect. Furnishings are upmarket and show the owner’s excellent taste. Mon (owner) is a lovely lady who also provided us with a welcome basket of goodies and a litre each of full cream and lite milk in the fridge. The view from the lounge room of the Huon River is quite spectacular. It is only 10 minutes to Cygnet and 10 minutes to the white sands of Randalls Bay. we only stayed 2 nights – should have stayed much longer!

Beyond expectations! Mon, you have been the loveliest of hosts. Thank you for opening your home, Moon River, to us on our honeymoon. Witnessing the natural chandelier of the Milky Way dancing with the Southern Lights was a spectacle my wife and I will never forget. We loved the attention to detail and the cleanliness of your home. We hope to come again next winter.
