Hobart Art House was just lovely - the perfect base for our first visit to Hobart. From its location perched up above Hobart we woke to beautiful sun-streaked views of the mist lifting over the city. It was an easy 15 or so minute walk to lots of great restaurants. The art-filled place was super comfortable and filled with great touches (fluffy towels!). The little courtyard is perfect for breakfast on a sunny morning and front balcony lovely for an afternoon wine and cheese. Skye was a pleasure to deal with. I have no hesitations in recommending Hobart Art House!

This house is amazing, great location and felt like our home away from home. Skye was great with communication and was very welcoming. The robes were a awesome touch highly recommended

It was a lovely location and easy to get around Hobart from. Unfortunately we had some hiccups with no soap and no direction on entering the property with regards to keys. The house was a little different to the photos but still a nice home.

Response from Skye:
Hopefully the soap and the bottle of Tasmanian wine we dropped in made up for this...:)

The cottage was a great place to base a stay in Hobart. We walked everywhere from our stay, and loved the elevated position, which gives a lovely view over Hobart. The had everything you would need to cook up a treat. We would stay there again. Skye was a very considerate host.
