Our Airbnb is a sunny house within easy walking distance to the city centre and Salamanca Place. The house blends heritage and contemporary styles and offers one bedroom, a spacious open plan lounge/kitchen area with an adjoining sitting room (with sofa bed). Guests have the benefit of a whole house and garden to themselves when they stay. It's also our part time home (when we do not have guests) so expect to stay in a well loved, personal space.
The house is located in West Hobart and is a great combination of old and new. The original cottage is historic but has been tastefully renovated and extended to make for a sunny, contemporary space full of original artwork. It's in a quiet little street and has easy access to good food, cafes and the city. Experience life in Hobart as the locals do. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. An outdoor deck can be accessed from the lounge/dining room. It has a garden and an off-street carpark for you to use. The bathroom is a combination of bathroom and laundry with a very stylish freestanding bath, separate shower and a front loader washing machine. Heating is provided by an electric wall mounted heater or woodheater.
You can use the whole house apart from one bedroom and the shed which we use to store some of our belongings. You have access to the garden and deck as well as the off-street carpark. You are welcome to use the equipment available in the house (e.g. television, iron, hairdryer, stereo). We are connected to the National Broadband Network so you have wifi access.
We will greet you, show you the facilities and give you any information that you need. We can be reached by telephone or email at other times.
There are very good places nearby to buy coffee, breakfast or lunch and supplies of food. We provide details of the nearby attractions for you in a guest folder in the accommodation. Hobart is fortunate to have many good restaurants and many are located within easy reach of our Airbnb.
This is a non-smoking house. Permission is required for more guests than the number included in your booking. We don't allow you to bring your pets to stay.
Our house is in a quiet little street and we value our relationships with neighbours so we ask that you not make a lot of noise late at night (no parties!) and respect the parking arrangements on the street outside (ie not parking over the yellow lines). Please smile at our neighbours and say hello!
We have been guests at many Airbnbs around the world - we like to stay in them so thought we would have one too!
Janine is a contemporary jewellery designer/maker and Laurie is a scientist who is also a talented woodcarver.
We like a relaxed and personal accommodation experience when we travel and usually choose a self contained house or apartment as we like our own space.
We like good food, art and the beautiful Tasmanian natural environment so if you stay at our Airbnb we can provide good tips on bushwalking, eating out and art and culture in Tasmania.
As hosts we like to meet you but we don't want to hang around - we will give you the information that you need and leave you to enjoy yourself.
