The space is suitable for a maximum of two people.
We live in quiet neighbourhood with unrestricted parking.
Breakfast (cereal, toast, juice, tea, coffee) will be provided each morning.

There are several areas to sit outside and enjoy the views. Interaction with GuestsThe accommodation is in our home, so we will be around during our guest's stay.
We are happy for guests to join us for a chat, but totally understand that sometimes quiet time is required. The NeighborhoodHowrah is a suburb of Hobart and is approximately 10kms from the city centre and approximately 10kms from the airport. Within walking distance there is a newsagents, post office, corner shop and hairdresser. Close by there are several petrol stations and two shopping centres.
Beautiful beaches are a five minute walk from here and there is a peaceful foreshore track that has lovely views of the river.
A five minute drive will take you to Bellerive, where you can visit the Blundstone Arena to watch a game of cricket or football. See the many yachts at the Bellerive marina while wandering along the boardwalk, enjoy a coffee or meal at one of the restaurants. Salamanca beckons with restaurants, pubs, cafes and the famous Saturday market.
An easy drive to the historic village of Richmond, passing several wineries along the way, Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula, New Norfolk in the Derwent Valley, which is renowned for it's many antique shops, (our personal favourite is Ring Road Antiques), the South West Wilderness (Gordon Dam, Lake Pedder, Railtrack Riders, Styx Valley, Junee caves at Maydena and many walks), the Huon Valley (Tahune Airwalk, Ida Bay Railway, South Cape Bay - walk to the very bottom of Australia, Hastings Cave, thermal springs are just some suggestions), take the ferry to Bruny Island.
Other places of interest are, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and the world famous MONA, Museum of Old and New Art. River cruises to MONA and Peppermint Bay are within easy reach. Getting AroundTwo bus stops are easily accessible, but I recommend hiring a car for ease of travelling around Tasmania.
There is no bus service from the airport to our home, so either a taxi or hire car are the options. Other Things to NoteWe are in a great location for The Taste of Tasmania, Hobart Farm Gate market, Richmond Village market, Sorell market and numerous festival events, as after the hustle and bustle, it is lovely to come back here for some peace and quiet.
