We are Sue and Jonathan and we own and operate Parnella Accommodation in the southern region of Tasmania.

Our perspective on our business is very simple. To provide a top quality service at a realistic price.

We have designed our holiday accommodation to reflect our tastes and the expectations we have when we go to stay somewhere. We expect the places where we choose to stay to be clean and comfortable with the management to be available when we need them but discreetly invisible when we don’t.

We hope that your stay at our places will meet with your expectations and give you the same sense of enjoyment. Our properties are private and secluded and designed to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

FAQ – A few bits of info to help you

Do you include breakfast in the tariff?

We do not provide breakfast at our properties. There are many local cafés that offer breakfast service and we can provide suggestions to suit your tastes. Alternatively all our properties have fully equipped kitchens and you are able to bring your own provisions to prepare the breakfast of your choice.

Can I bring my pet to stay at your properties?

Sorry, but we do not permit pets to stay at any of our properties. This does not apply to assistance dogs. We do require advance notification for assistance dog stays.
