Unaware of Coles Bay’s popularity with holiday makers, we thought we’d semi retire here and would be working part time at best. Wrong! However, in the time we’ve been running Sheoaks we’ve enjoyed meeting some amazing people from literally all over the world. Our background in education gave us the skills to ascertain what guests want and we enjoy unobtrusively helping them to have an enjoyable stay in our beautiful part of Tasmania.
In 2006. 2011, 2012 and 2013 we won Best Hosted Accommodation in the Tasmanian Tourism Awards, in 2012 we were awarded a bronze medal in the Australian Tourism Awards and in 2013 were admitted to the Tasmanian Tourism Hall of Fame. We’ve stopped entering and Margaret has now become an Awards judge. Sheoaks is always in the top 10 businesses for our area in the People’s Choice Awards and has won on a number of occasions. Annually we receive a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.
