1890's Cottage, with an Architecturally designed extension.
Welcome to my cottage in Hobart CBD , not satisfied with my 2008 renovation I embarked on making this one count. As the owner/builder and with the help of family and architects we have put together a great space to live, relax and sleep.
A 7-10 min walk to Salamanca Market, Farm Gate Market, endless cafes and food delights, makes this a unique experience for everyone who stays.

The space

A convict brick cottage built in the 1890's is rich with history. A bright and enticing extension awaits as you enter the space, its a great place to relax in.
The white palette gives way for the industrial galley kitchen and Tasmanian oak timber finishes that envelopes the windows and doors.
Working from the desk isn't a bother either, over looking the entry you get a sense of the volume created by the 5 metre high ceiling all while looking out the window you can keep one eye on the weather.
A comfortable bed sits in loft part of the cottage with plenty of hanging space and shelves for unpacking to make you feel homely.
A hot shower and heated floor is one of the delights you will fall in love with, along with the snuggly couches and blankets.

This was my first time using airbnb, and it was an easy and great experience. Matt responded quickly and was a great host. We arrived in the early afternoon to find a clean, cute, little cottage with goodies in the fridge! The place has a lot of charm. The bedding was very cozy and the sofa bed was great for a short stay. My parents were visiting from Canada and they stayed upstairs and commented on how spacious the room was as well as the comfortable bed. Maybe the bathroom was a bit old, but it was still very clean and was one of the best showers of the trip (hot and great pressure!) The cottage was in a great centre location, and we found parking quite easily. All in all was very happy. Will come back!

A gorgeous cottage, one for the architecture afficionados. We loved our stay at the cottage and wholeheartedly recommend to anyone, especially if you are after romantic escape in the heart of Hobart. Matt took care to make our stay memorable, he was waiting at the door when we arrived. The tips about the local food and things to do were most welcome. Do it!

This place has great reviews for a reason - amazing place to stay and genuine host who only wants to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Pictures don't do this place justice - incredible space to come back to after a day of exploring.
