The Space

Attention those about to try and book:
Please flesh out your profile and verify your email and phone numbers BEFORE you try to book. We wholeheartedly adhere to the airbnb philosophy of mutual trust, created by exchanging profiles.
No profile/verifications - no booking! Sorry!

Our loft is all open space with it's own entrance (ex plumber's workshop). No internal doors anywhere (bathroom excepted). Three levels. Large, VERY quiet downstairs double bedroom, a European style double bed with quality mattresses, pillows and doonas.

Raised mezzanine platform over main space for a bit of out-of-the-way sitting (no beds there; too noisy in frequent high winds, too bright, too small for a double bed - sorry!).

Most walls in the loft and in the small overflow bedroom are lime-washed for healthy internal climate.

Cooking facilities include dishwasher, two-plate induction cooker, microwave, toaster, percolator and espresso maker, fridge (no freezer), filtered drinking water tap. No baking oven, no grill.

There is an efficient heat pump in the loft and a panel heater in the bedroom (see house rules).

All linen and towels provided (we don't use chemical fabric softeners, nor do we iron bed linen or towels).

Hand- and shower soap and shampoo/conditioner are provided.

Electric blankets installed in all beds (during the cold season only). Extra doonas in the cupboards of both sleeping spaces.

Simply, creatively furnished. A touch rustic.

Water glimpses and pleasant garden views.

Overflow bedroom:
There is also a separate, small, comfortable overflow bedroom five steps under cover from the loft entrance (may not suit the very tall and/or bulky). The room has a 1.4m x 2m double bed with a new inner spring mattress and quality bedding. The overflow bedroom is there to take a second couple (or a single extra person).

This overflow bedroom can also be used if one in a party of two people wants to sleep in a separate bedroom. But you need to negotiate an extra fee with us in advance if one person in a party of two wants to stay in a separate bedroom.

- Total internal floor space of the loft proper is well over 100m2.
- The overflow bedroom is about 11m2.

Guest Access

The loft is in Battery Point, as close as you can get to most of the action in Hobart. Battery Point retains a village atmosphere and is part of the must-see areas of Tasmania.

10 pleasant minutes walk through quaint Battery Point, without crossing any large roads take you to Salamanca Market, a fine supermarket, a quality deli, countless eateries, the harbour (Mona ferry/bus terminal) and the spectacular, re-opened Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG). Add another 5 minutes to the Hobart CBD.

Interaction with Guests

We leave you alone, once you have moved in. But we are also happy to help with ideas for sight seeing and activities if you wish.

Deutsch, Français, Italiano spoken. Welcome!

The Neighborhood

Acclaimed cafés, pubs, ethnic eateries and bakery nearby at 5 min walk. Coles / Woolworth 8-10 mins walk in the opposite direction (Sandy Bay), using the fitness promoting ;-) steps of Nanny Goat Lane.

Getting around

There is guaranteed free car parking in the close vicinity or right in front of the loft. This is how it works: If regular un-timed (free) parking spots in the street are occupied you can then legally park over the driveway that leads straight down to the loft. Using a public bus is a science to itself ...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fabulous spot in a perfect location in beautiful Hobart! Just a 5 minute stroll down to Salamanca and some great eats and drinks! Peter and Lesley were super friendly and helpful. The apartment was spotless and well furnished. Definitely recommend!

  • What a fantastic place! Huge, light-filled, comfortable, easy access, fantastic location. The accommodation was better than presented in the photos. Peter and Lesley were welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Couldn't recommend more highly.

    April 2014
  • Peter and Lesley's loft was the cherry on the cake of our Hobart stay. Was so easy to make ourselves feel at home there. After a long day visiting sites and surrounds the thought of a comfy home to go back to was bliss. The loft had everything we needed and the recommendations by Peter and Lesley were spot on. Located in Battery Point it's close to all the best bits of Hobart. We would recommend it to anyone staying in Hobart. This loft will be our choice again and again.

  • We REALLY enjoyed our stay at the Hobart Loft. Peter and Lesley are very warm, friendly, efficient, yet not obtrusive so you really have the space to yourself. Truly the accommodation is even more lovely than it appears in the pictures. The place has a relaxed, minimalistic, European feel about it which we adored. The accommodation was beautifully clean and we enjoyed the thoughtful recommendations that the hosts provided. The gardens are gorgeous and it really is just a little slice of heaven. So central, so enjoyable!

  • Appreciates much how gracious host Lesley has kindly indicated on the map to indicate where we could source for bulk organic nuts and good walking shoes and gave us lots of privacy in their spacious loft. Especially love using their unbleached toilet roll and low suds biodegradable washing powder which we are accustomed to back home.

  • This was our second stay and it was everything we remember. Comfortable and conveniently located (particularly enjoyed the italian restaurant and bakery right nearby). Arrival and departure were easy and we always felt we had a point of contact if needed. Love it & love Hobart...we'll be back!

  • nothing to add to the positive reviews: convivial hosts, light filled spacious loft with big views, excellent location.

    March 2014
  • Ditto all the positive reviews below. Peter and Lesley were great hosts. The loft was clean airy and bright just as described. The bed was comfortable and sleeping conditions were perfect! Battery Point is the best part of Hobart. Close to everything and so pretty!

    March 2014
  • We spent a lovely long weekend in the spacious Hobart loft. The location was brilliant - walking distance to Battery Point, Salamanca Place, CBD and pier area. The loft itself was bright, well-equipped and comfortable and was exactly as per the description provided. The view was a nice bonus. The loft was well organised and all of our needs had been anticipated. There was loads of information about activities in the area as well as nearby cafes and restaurants, which was very useful. Both Peter and Lesley were very welcoming and were happy to suggest places to visit also. There was ample free car parking provided in the street too, for our hire car. Thanks for a really enjoyable stay!

We extensively travel internationally, photo-documenting liveable, built environments to present back to Tasmania and keep urging planning decision makers to implement internationally successful liveability infrastructure in Tasmania. Our mode of travel is by self-built camper, public transport, city and country walking, cycling and kayaking, a bit of art and culture and meeting people. (Duyen is assisting us in administration and sometimes hosting. Among other things she is a budding writer.) We like the idea of being able to offer our loft to travellers.
