Extra spacious, clean, bright loft for up to 4 guests. Very quiet at night. Minutes walk to the centre of activities in Hobart. Creative, rustic, garden views, water glimpses. Acclaimed cafés/eateries nearby. Parking in front. Airport shuttle bus.
Before we go any further describing our loft, here is an important message for those about to try and book:
Please flesh out your profile and verify your email and phone numbers BEFORE you try to make a booking. We wholeheartedly adhere to the airbnb philosophy of mutual trust, created by exchanging profiles.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 ...
MONA is closed on Tuesdays.
We had a fantastic experience. Peter seemed lovely and the house was simply amazing. What a wonderful week in Hobart!
This is a wonderful place to stay in Hobart. Plenty of space for two people, beautifully furnished and, best of all, in a quiet location with calming views of Sandy Bay. Couldn't ask for better instructions, communication and recommendations from our hosts. Highly, highly recommended. Cheers!
Lovely place to stay in hobart and great hosts! Best location and we enjoyed exploring hobart on foot from the flat. Light and airy, very spacious. Would definitely stay again.
This lovely property was exactly as represented in the photographs; a
very attractive, clean and pleasant place to stay. It is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and it was very quiet at night. The loft is a short and pleasant walk down to Salamanca Place. Peter, Lesley and Duyen's suggestions for places to eat were spot on.
We really enjoyed our stay in this airy loft. Peter and Lesley were the perfect hosts -- attentive and friendly without being intrusive. We were comfortable and our every need was catered for. And, I loved the sparkling nighttime views over the Hobart hills. Magic!
My husband and I spent a month in Australia, and before embarking on a backpacking trip in Tasmania, we booked a stay in Hobart at the most wonderful accommodation, in a superb neighborhood. We found this loft absolutely perfect! Our hosts were extremely helpful getting us oriented, and made some great suggestions for dining. We were able to have a pleasant walk to dinner through the Salamanca market one evening, and then found a wonderful Indian food restaurant within the neighborhood the next evening.
The loft itself is gorgeous! Spacious, well-equipped, quiet, private and aesthetically pleasing. The bed was beyond comfortable and we actually hated to leave. We will recommend this accommodation to anyone and everyone visiting Hobart.
The loft was delightful in the summery weather and the perfect location to attend the MONA FOMA festival (close to the action but also to escape to some peace and quiet). The space has a calm and peaceful feel and was perfect for a relaxing weekend in Hobart. I would stay there again without hesitation, in fact, I cannot wait for the next visit!
Peter and Lesley were very accommodating and flexible with our arrangements and our whole stay was snag-free and seamless. Pro Airbnb'ers will notice the attention to detail and service of this couple.
Thank you Peter and Lesley for sharing your home with us, you have made a very wonderful place to stay in Battery Point!
We really enjoyed our stay: the view from the living area over the garden and the bay is amazing! The house is very conveniently located only a short stroll from most places you would like to visit, and yet it's a very quiet place to sleep, if you are a light sleeper. We will certainly stay again if we are in Hobart.
Staying at Peter and Lesley's loft in Battery Point was absolutely perfect. The location is very central and close to Salamanca and other cool Battery Point Cafes, there was untimed parking out the front and the place was a lot bigger than I expected! We loved the style of the loft and it had everything you would need and expect in your own place! It was very clean and tidy also.
Peter and Lesley were great hosts! They left us a portacot and floor rug for our baby and entertained him while we settled in. But also left us undisturbed throughout our stay. There is nothing more we could expect.
Thank you Peter and Lesley for having us stay in your fantastic place. We would definitely come again if in Hobart and would highly recommend the place to anyone visiting!

We loved staying here. My husband, daughter and I stayed here for four nights and found the space very friendly and comfortable. I couldn't imagine a better location in Hobart. Battery Point is very pretty, has lovely cafés and we could happily walk to the city and Salamanca Place from here. The interior has a very relaxed feel and the view was lovely.
