This beautiful character home is less than a kilometre from Hobart’s centre. The guest suite has a generous private bedroom (king-size or two single beds) and luxurious private bathroom with mountain views. Park off-street beside your separate entrance. A homemade breakfast is provided in the private breakfast room. No sink or cooking facilities, but there's a bar fridge, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery and plenty of restaurants and take-away options nearby. And we do the dishes for you!

The space
Built in about 1885, this grand old Victorian house has been extensively restored and refurbished with original features carefully retained and augmented. The guest suite features an enormous bathroom complete with a claw-foot bath, shower and chandelier. Off-street parking is available outside your separate entrance.

Guest access
The guest suite (breakfast room, and lockable bedroom and bathroom) is for your private use during your stay and you'll be the only guests in our home. There's a separate entrance just for you and a private stairway to the guest suite. The upstairs hallway you'll use to access the guest suite is a shared space but is used only briefly and occasionally by members of our family. We'll deliver breakfast and check the breakfast room every day to make sure you have everything you need. There is a bar fridge, and a kettle and toaster and the breakfast room is well supplied with crockery, cutlery and glassware.

Other things to note
We can provide a portacot, cot linen, high chair and baby toys for one baby (free of charge). However, the stairs and windows mean the space may unsuitable for more mobile young children: please contact host for further details.
We have a cat in residence. He has never been allowed in the accommodation part of the house. He is fairly shy but you may see him in the hallway. The hallway is also occasionally used by the humans in the family who are much more friendly!
If you plan to walk, we can provide information about the best routes and how to ensure you climb gentle inclines rather than steep ones. The house is on a hill - great for the view of the city and mountain, but you may wish to take an Uber or taxi if you're arriving with heavy bags and don' t have a car.

Location

Glebe, Tasmania, Australia

Glebe is a lovely old area of Hobart, on a hill overlooking the city but tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The Domain, botanical gardens and aquatic centre are on your doorstep. Glebe is residential only which keeps it wonderfully peaceful. It also means no neighbourhood coffee bar, but don’t panic. Our resident barista is happy to provide your caffeine fix.
