About Robin and Rhonda

Olive's Cottage is a former family property. We wanted to keep the property in the family, as it is in such a wonderful spot, with so many fond memories. We use it for family get togethers. Sharing it with others via a cottage/B&B seemed a logical step.

Robin and Rhonda purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Robin and Rhonda chose Tasmania

Olive's Cottage is a truly boutique property. Guests have sole occupancy of the one acre property. The managers live nearby and keep the cottage and the gardens in meticulous condition.
