The Helmsman’s House at Frenchman’s River, Cygnet, Tasmania, has won the Romance category in the 2016 Holiday Rental Awards from Stayz, Australia’s number one holiday rental website.


The Helmsman’s House was selected from a shortlist of outstanding properties, determined by the holiday rental site, and beat more than 45,000 holiday homes across 2,000 unique locations nationally as judged by Elle Magazine.

In its fifth consecutive year, the awards acknowledge the best Stayz holiday rentals across 10 popular holiday categories including Family, Romance, Indulgence, At One with Nature, Pet-friendly, Unique, Interior and Design and Most Valuable Property.

Commenting on the news, owners Posie Graeme-Evans and Andrew Blaxland said, “We are completely thrilled that after such a short period since opening Helmsman’s House we have been recognised as one of the best holiday rentals in the country – especially in the Romance category. We hope that both our luxury self-contained couples’ retreats overlooking Cygnet Bay speak for themselves but we’re just delighted that our work’s been singled out in this way by Stayz & Elle Magazine”.

The Helmsman’s House is an expansive two-bedroom and two-bathroom Federation farmhouse re-imagined by designer, Andrew Blaxland and has been created to provide authentic, romantic and unique experiences for couples with glorious views of water, mountains and fields on all sides.

The house includes luxuries such as a double-sided wood fire place, opulent bathrooms – each with a bath, underfloor heating and walk-in shower – a cook’s kitchen and a huge limestone-flagged terrace that looks out over 200 acres of the working farm and beautiful Cygnet Bay.

Frenchman’s River is within walking distance to Cygnet with its great cafes, food and bi-weekly produce and artisans’ market.

Frenchman’s River opened in May, 2016 and offer’s guests a choice of two luxury cottages, “Helmsman’s House” and “The Writers House” with rates starting from $355 per night.
