The SpaceThis listing is my non-smoking home in a very quiet neighbourhood.
Your bedroom can accommodate a single person or a couple, but there is no room for additional people. Your bedroom includes an excellent comfortable Queen sized bed complete with cosy doona and electric blanket, a substantial hanging space in a wardrobe, storage drawers, additional cotton (summer) woollen (winter) blankets, and pillows, and bedside lamps. The windows are double glazed for temperature control, and they are covered with heavy drapes to block out the morning sun and allow for deep uninterrupted sleep. Our shared bathroom, with both shower and bath, is located immediately next door to your room. The toilet is separate from the bathroom.
In the kitchen, a tray offers you a range of complimentary teas and coffees. The milk is in the fridge. Please make yourself a cuppa whenever you wish.
If you would like me to provide a light breakfast, please ask when you make your reservation and I can provide more details including the additional cost that will be involved (alternatively you may wish to buy food at the local supermarket and eat here, or go out to a local cafe for breakfast).
My home has a balcony, an outdoor patio, a garden flush with fruit trees, and free-off-street parking. My home is located a few minutes’ walk to a bus mall which can take you to the Hobart city CBD (only 6-10 minutes drive away), my home is ideal for people who enjoy quiet living with easy access to facilities, services and tourist attractions. Guest AccessMy home is at the end of a quiet cul de sac yet only 5-10 minutes’ walk to shopping centres, supermarkets, bottle shop, a cinema, post office, newsagent, bakery, hairdresser, doctor, cafes, fast food outlets, and much more. A 20 minute walk will take you to a range of restaurants. There are many bus services which can support some of these walks. Taxis arrive almost immediately after booking - excellent service. Interaction with GuestsI love Hobart and Tasmania and all it has to offer, so I am happy to answer any questions guests might have. On the other hand, if you like solitude and privacy I will not be intrusive. After all, this is your holiday! The NeighborhoodThe Clarence Foreshore Trail is a pedestrian and cycle path which leads north and south from Bellerive and offers wonderful vistas of the Derwent River, Mount Wellington, historical sites, our fabulous beaches and different suburbs. I have walked this trail and others (the photo of me was taken by a casual passer-by on one of my walks along the Derwent River) and so I will be very happy to talk with you about the local possibilities. Getting AroundA number of bus stops are located 5-10 minutes’ walk from the house. The trip into the CBD of Hobart city takes around 10-12 minutes by bus. If you choose to walk into the city, depending on your fitness you might reach there in an around an hour (I have often enjoyed walking over the Tasman Bridge into the city or back home). Bellerive Village and Bellerive Beach are 20-25 minutes’ walk away or a 3 minute bus trip.
Taxi services from Hobart city typically average around $18 one way. In other words, it is very easy to get around from this location.
It takes 20 minutes to drive to the airport and the cost of a taxi to the airport is around $45.
If you have your own car, you will have free off-street parking at my house. I don't own a car so the carport will be yours. Other Things to NoteI will be living in the house while you stay. While I will be happy to chat with you if you wish, I am also happy to allow you your space.
I do not have any pets but this is a cat friendly neighbourhood.
Did you know that Hobart is the driest capital city in Australia, despite being the southern most? Many visitors find they never unfurl their umbrellas - but it is always wise to carry one just in case the weather changes quickly and unexpectedly. Did you know that another Australian capital city (Canberra) routinely has much colder mornings in winter than Hobart ever experiences? Nevertheless you should always bring your winter woollies with you when visiting Hobart.
My home is not child-friendly and the room and space are for adults only.
