The SpaceA cottage feeling in the heart of Sandy Bay helped by classic finishes, lush garden and pretty verandah with mountain views. Close to local amenities and public transport, the home comfortably accommodates 4 people with two queen beds. A lounge, dining room and well appointed kitchen enables you to eat at home should you prefer that to the short walk to Sandy Bay's wonderful restaurants and yacht clubs. The whole house is yours for the duration of your stay including the garden and verandah. Local amenities include a specialist fresh produce shop, butchers, Coles, Woolies, etc for your immediate needs, and wonderful restaurants and boutique shops - all within a short walk from the home. A brisk 20 minute walk finds you in the centre of Hobart to enjoy the shops, galleries, cafes, bars, Salamanca Market, museum's and other cultural experiences or to join a ferry maybe to Peppermint Bay or to the now world famous MONA. But with parking always available in the cul-de-sac and a bus stop just minutes away from the front door, guests will easily experience all of what Hobart and the wider area can offer while still having that homely feel. This house has been in my family for over 50 years and I have tried to maintain that warm, classic homely feeling to ensure you enjoy your stay. Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Having spent a large amount of my life in this home, I am pleased that the neighbourhood is still quiet and has maintained a family feel. One particular set of neighbours are very friendly and are only too happy to help with any required directions or to just chat over the fence.

The SpaceThe Old Bishop's Quarters in Fitzroy Place, near Salamanca. Splendid luxury at the bottom of the world - a special hide-away with the feel of a luxury, boutique hotel, without the hotel and much more space. Stay in a spacious, beautifully appointed apartment in one of Australia’s most historic houses, formerly home to each Bishop of Tasmania for over 160 years until 2003. Our family home was built in the 1830s and is set in about an acre of gardens on one of Hobart’s most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street. And unlike Battery Point/other central areas, we have plenty of free parking outside. Availability should always be up to date as it is sync'd with our website booking system. For prices, click on booking with your dates and up comes the quote. Free wifi, linen/towels and parking; accommodation only. This 110 square metre apartment is completely self-contained at a secluded end of a 3 storey 10 bedroom family home. It comprises 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedded bedroom - we can set it up as a second double bedroom on request. There is a large lounge room and sumptuous underfloor heated bathroom on the first floor, divided off and separate from the rest of the house. The lounge has 30 square metres of beautiful dark polished original oak flooring and offers pleasant views across extensive gardens towards the Derwent River. Independent/dedicated access is through an attractive courtyard, separate entrance door and stairs. The apartment has been fitted out to the highest possible standard.

High quality queen sized beds: there are Australian-made AH Beard King Koil Spinal Contour Firm mattresses in the bedrooms. High quality bed linen and plenty of good pillows. We can provide a roll away bed on request. Not a lot has changed in this house over the years, other than a major restoration project funded by the National Trust in the 1990s and now our efforts - especially heating! The house was designed in stages by two of Australia's most renowned architects in the 19th century, Henry Hunter and George Fagg. There are many stories about past owners, residents and guests including Field Marshall Montgomery of WW2 fame (check out our house on youtube - 'Monty in Love and War Part 1'), Lady Gowrie, every Anglican Bishop of Tasmania from mid-19th century to early 21st century, endless Governor-Generals, the first Attorney General of Tasmania, a good selection of Archbishops of Canterbury and York, and so on. Bookings starting on a Thursday evening will usually only work for us if it includes the weekend as Friday is a very popular start date for weekend bookings. Weekend bookings generally must include a Friday for the same reason. During school holidays and at weekends between November and April, bookings will be charged at the rate for 4 guests. No parties.

Come and enjoy 21st century Hobart mixed with the 19th century! Here is an extract about Monty's Old School House from 'A Field Marshall in the Family' (Brian Montgomery): "Our Unusual Parents: Tasmania Days Meanwhile at Hobart, with her usual organising ability, Mother had arranged for tutors to come from England and take over the whole job of teaching the children, who were rapidly growing up. The arrival of these tutors gave her more freedom to devote her attention to the many and varied activities of a Colonial bishop's wife. Fortunately Bishopscourt, their home in Hobart, was a large rambling building with a big garden, well suited to her purpose. She had an additional room built, outside the house, which served as a school where not only her own children were taught, but also those of certain close friends in or near Hobart. One of the boys who came was Andrew Holden, the son of Doctor Holden who was father's closest friend in Tasmania. Much later, Andrew married my elder sister Una. The boys of the school had the charge of the schoolroom, taking their turn weekly to keep it clean, light the fire, chop the wood and generally maintain it. Here too they got their own evening meal, and for this purpose the boy in charge for the week was given half a crown to spend on 'extras' over and above what the cook provided. One boy would spend the whole sum on cake or biscuits, whilst another bought tinned salmon and persuaded the cook to make it up into fish cakes. The future Field-Marshal, on one occasion when his turn came round, discovered, with due regard for economy, some cheap eggs. He announced, to the great amusement of his parents but the dismay of his fellows, that he was providing `reduced eggs' ! Although all the children had to submit to Mother's routine and sense of order it should not be thought they were unhappy or discontented in Tasmania. On the contrary they loved it all, especially the constant outdoor life, the picnics, riding, fishing and the like."

Prossers Seafood Restaurant (special occasions) with views of the river is also popular . Across the road from our place the views from historic Alexandra Battery are spectacular and we love living so close to the beaches (yes we have seen dolphins swimming close to shore) and the bushland which has wallabies and potteroos despite being so close to houses. We never tire of walking along the esplanade, onto the Beach into Nutgrove Park hearing the waves as the tides change.

      The SpaceOur unit is part of a complex of five conjoined units that sits well off the road on the main road that runs through Hobart. Don't let the daggy 70s facade put you off ! We have renovated our unit such that it is now a light, colourful, exciting and comfortable place to have as your Hobart base. The kitchen/lounge room is really sunny and has a very pleasant aspect over West Hobart and Hobart city. Guest AccessThere are 2 bedrooms in the unit. The first bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. Upon request we can also provide a portacot for infants. The unit has a shower over a small bath, and please note that there is no rail on the wall so might some elderly guests might find it difficult to access. There is one designated carpark for guests just in front of the unit. Please also note that due to the size of the unit there is no inside dinner table. Instead, there is a couch with a coffee table, and stools at the kitchen bench plus there is a table outside with 4 chairs for the warmer months. Interaction with GuestsOur family lives in a house only a few doors away from the unit so that if guests have any problems we are close at hand to help them out. Other than that we are happy to give guests instructions as to how to access the key to the unit and just leave guests to their own devices. The NeighborhoodI love this area because it is walking distance to so many places - the city centre, salamanca and the wharf where the MONA ferry leaves, the Hobart rivulet that runs just below our street, and the restaurants and cafes of North Hobart and South Hobart. Getting AroundThe unit is about a 10 minute walk into the city centre, and about an 15-20 minute down to Salamanca and to the MONA ferry terminal.

The apartment is very spacious for a couple. If a third person (adult or child) wishes to stay an additional fee of $30 per night will apply. The apartment is perfect for travellers seeking personalised, small scale, quiet accommodation in a beautiful streetscape. Uncluttered and stylish, the apartment features a well-designed galley kitchen with Scholtes oven and cooktop, and plenty of kitchen equipment for foodies wishing to cook and eat in. Filtered water on tap. 1926 is set in established gardens, with espaliered fruit trees. Guests are encouraged to sample apricots, apples and figs when in season. A range of herbs is perfect if you are cooking in. One of Hobart's best delis is located within five minutes’ walk away, offering fresh, local Tasmanian produce, wine, imported goods, house-baked breads and local seafood and meats. The space is ideal for a couple as the bedroom has a queen size bed. If two singles are staying, or a couple or single with a small child, a futon sofa in the overflow room allows this to be used as a separate single room, but please be aware that the bathroom opens off this room (see pictures on this site). The apartment is part of a house that dates from 1926, designed by Hobart architect Bernard Walker, who was also responsible for designing many other beautiful Hobart buildings, including the Cenotaph, the original Friends School and Markree House, now a small museum in Battery Point. 1926 comprises a bedroom that is part of the original house, with newer open-plan living areas added in the 1980s. 1926 has its own entrance and is quite private.

I'm easily contactable via phone or email. Guests self check-in using the digital key safe outside of the apartment, a seamless and simple process. After you check-in I'll drop by to say hi and make sure you're comfortable, with the exception of the odd occasion if I'm away from the premise.

Comprehensive notes on how everything works is available in the apartment. The NeighborhoodI love living in Sandy Bay.

      The SpaceStone Flower is a beautiful, light-filled, multi-level dwelling which flawlessly harmonizes the richness of its historical past with comforts of modern day life. This unique property has been creatively transformed and provides privacy and comfort. Please enjoy it! The upstairs space, is bathed in natural light and sits under a soaring cathedral ceiling. From the stunning bedroom with its deliciously comfortable queen-size bed you step up into the open plan bathroom featuring a large wet area shower, mirrored cupboards, and gorgeous vanity all enveloped in the warmth of timber and stone. The old barn's original ladder now serves as a unique towel rack! Guest amenities are provided. Downstairs, there is an open plan living area perfect for relaxing with a good book or for watching a movie from the eclectic DVD collection provided. And the best of Australian contemporary furniture is yours to enjoy. Step down into the fully equipped, gourmet kitchen and cook up a storm. Culinary delights are available from several conveniently located grocers including the much loved Hill St Grocer, Salamanca Fresh, Wursthaus Kitchen, Salamanca Market (on Saturday) as well as the normal supermarkets. The custom built dining table has been recycled from beams left over from the renovation and seats four people. There is under floor heating both upstairs and downstairs and a panel heater in the bedroom. There is also a small private outdoor area for guest to enjoy and parking for one car. Stone Flower is the winner of several architectural and building awards including: - 2010 National Award for Small Project Architecture - The Roy Sharington Smith Award for Heritage Architecture - Tasmanian Architecture Award for Small Project Architecture - 2011 Winner Renovation (HIA-CSR) - Vic/Tas Timber Design Award for Best Renovation Guest AccessStone Flower is fully self-contained and private, accommodates two people and is for guests to fully enjoy. When you arrive, you will find a key box with a code to be provided and there in will be your key. There will be breakfast goodies provided to get you started. There is also a small outdoor area (will which soon be developed into a garden space). Stone flower is connected to the NBN (National Broadband Network) and has high speed internet access. Check the Compendium for access code and password. There is an easy to use Miele washer/ dryer laundry. Instructions are in the Compendium. Parking is available for one car. However, the driveway is narrow. It's easier to park in the street. Interaction with GuestsStone Flower is designed for a private getaway. Everything will be set up and provided before your arrival and we endeavour to make your stay special. There is no need for direct interaction with our guests, however if necessary, we are available through contact by mobile or email. Enjoy your privacy! The Neighborhood There is a wonderful community spirit in popular West Hobart and guests will feel right at home. Stone Flower is located at the end of a driveway, tucked away behind a Federation house. It’s a three minute walk from the excellent Pigeon Hole Café known for its outstanding coffee, bread and delicious food. A perfect place for breakfast! Walking into the city takes all of five minutes and you are central to everything. Salamanca Place, Battery Point, the North Hobart restaurant strip, the waterfront and its myriad galleries and restaurants, are but a five minute drive away. One of the features of Hobart is its breathtaking setting; nestled between the lofty heights of Mount Wellington (Indigenous name: kunanyi) and the sparkling estuary of the Derwent river. One of the most enjoyable ways to experience the beauty of Hobart is take a cruise. Boats leave from Watermans Dock in the city. Hobart is host to many superb and exciting festivals including: Dark MoFo, Mona Foma, The Summer Festival, The Festival of Voices, The Wooden Boat Festival, The Tasmanian Arts Festival, The Taste Festival, The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Whether it’s Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter there is always something on in Hobart to enrich the senses and inspire the soul. Getting AroundStone Flower is located within walking distance of the city, but the easiest and most convenient way to see the many attractions that Hobart offers is by car. Alternatively, cabs are easily accessible and affordable. I believe UBER has recently entered the market in Hobart as well. As mentioned earlier, our barn is located at the end of a driveway on a steep hill. Take care walking up even though the barn is only ten houses up. Hobart also has a public transport bus system. Other Things to NoteStone Flower is located on a steep hill very close to the centre of town. Walking down is easy, walking up....well, you'll want to be fit! There is off street parking for one car but the driveway is narrow, so be careful. If you have a large vehicle, please park in the street. Check in time is 2:00 pm and check out time is 10:00am. There can be some flexibility with this if so please let me know what your plans are. The open plan bathroom area in the upstairs area is...open plan. It was designed this way for architectural flow so as to not ruin the pitched roof line and openness of the upstairs. There is no door in the toilet area although it is in its own space.

      The SpaceThis is a beautiful quirky little studio that we built, utilising lots of recycled materials, in our former garage which sits at the back of our yard. The property is very conveniently located, being just a short walk from the centre of Hobart City and a 20 minute stroll to the delights of the Hobart waterfront. The studio features a loft space fitted with queen bed, quality bedding plus your own little window for gazing across the lights of Hobart. It is a low ceiling in the loft so if you are claustrophobic then this may not suit you. There is a kitchenette equipped with a electric hotplates, fridge, real coffee, cocktail glasses and all the other necessities for eating and drinking up a storm! The vivid RED bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and shower plus there is an outside bath plumbed into the deck in the yard that guests are also welcome to enjoy ( a glass of red in a steamy hot bath in the crisp Tasmania winter air is perfection!). It is a small space and ideally suited to one or two people but on request we can provide a portacot for those travelling with a baby, and there is also the possibility of turning the built in couch into a bed for a child. The studio is self contained with access from the driveway but there is another door that leads to a backyard which is shared with our family. Guests are welcomed and encouraged to utilise the garden space - to relax in a deck chair, pick veggies or herbs from our garden ( Paul is a keen gardener), grab some eggs from our chooks, to wind down in the outside bath tub that is sunk into the deck. I should mention that we have three young kids and we are very sociable so the backyard is not always a calm and peaceful place, indeed sometimes it is the setting for grand pirate adventures, or for daring culinary acts by my 4 year old, or tragic tussles over the plastic watering can toy.You get the picture! We provide guests with: some breakfast supplies, including muesli, milk, eggs ( when the hens are laying), tea and real coffee. quality bed linen towels face washers a mini-library and board games all the kitcheny things wifi access oil, salt and pepper ( because it is really annoying having to buy such things for a two night stay) a booklet with local knowledge of things to do Off street parking We are a very laid back and sociable family and we love meeting new people and are happy for guests to just wander by and ask us questions. Because we are living on the same property as the studio the chances are that we will be able to meet guests to introduce them to the space and make sure they are settled in okay. If we happen to be away then we will leave a key and instructions for guests in an arranged location. This is a super convenient location as it is just a short stroll down Liverpool St into town or down to the wharf ( where the MONA ferry and bus leaves from) and Salamanca Market. Also, it is just a 5 minute to the Hobart Rivulet, which is a nice place to walk, bike or jog along. If you are fit an adventurous you can even follow the rivulet track right up the mountain.
