House rules

A stylish, self-contained flat with with great river views, queen bed, kitchenette, free wi-fi, leafy garden with chooks (fresh eggs for breakfast!), and a lovable bulldog to play with.

It's the perfect place to base yourself when exploring Hobart and the surrounding area.

Short walk to riverside parks, 5min drive to MONA, and and 20min from the airport and Salamanca. It's close enough to the city centre to be convenient, but far enough away to enjoy the views and serenity.

The space
The one bedroom flat has been recently renovated with new carpet and paint, and is decorated with a retro feel, ensuring a comfortable stay. It is located on the lower-level of the main house. It has its own private entrance at the front, and direct access to the rear landscaped garden. It's a lovely space to relax in and enjoy when you need some time out from sight seeing.

There is also a kitchenette off the living room, with fridge, microwave, and plug-in hotplates perfect for self-catered meals. Complimentary tea and coffee provided.

The bedroom has a very comfy queen-size bed, and a big window that looks out onto the garden. There is an en-suite bathroom. You also have access to shared laundry facilities.

The light-filled space is peaceful, and well insulated. For the winter months there is a heater in each room and an electric blanket on the bed to keep you warm.

The TV has Chromecast so you can stream content from your device.

Guest access
You will have exclusive private use of the downstairs flat for the duration of your stay. You are welcome to spend time in the garden too, and say hello to the chooks, and dog. You'll also find the shared laundry out the back in case you need to do any washing during your stay.

Other things to note
I have a lovely, and (reasonably) well behaved dog named Beau who lives at the house. He won't disturb you during your stay, but would welcome a pat if you are in the garden. Also my chooks often free-range around the garden, but if you have a chook phobia let me know and I can keep them in their run.

Austins Ferry has a European history dating back to 1813 when former convict James Austin was granted 50 acres of land. Here he established a cottage and farm. The cottage still stands today and is a 2 minuite walk from the apartment. Austin established a ferry crossing enterprise here that was to become part of the main transportation route between Hobart Town and the north of Van Diemen's Land. He became a wealthy man in the process.

The neighbouring suburb Claremont is home to the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, and also has a military history being the training camp for soldiers during World War I.
