About this listing
You will have a very private and modern renovated double room downstairs away from the main part of the house. Entry to your room is just as you enter the main access to the house and you can come and go as you need for your convenience.
It has a 32 inch LCD TV with payTV, wireless internet and your own small desk should you wish to do some work, study maps and brochures for your next adventure or to just eat in after a big day.
There are lovely views of the Derwent River, city and Mt Wellington from your window and you have your own open plan ensuite bathroom i.e no doors at all.
Should you have a car our driveway accommodates 2 cars so whoever gets home first gets the spot ... and/or there's street parking across the road from our home.
Of course you are very welcome to come upstairs and take in the morning sun out back in the garden setting or take in the fabulous views on our balcony out front and watch the sunset over Mt Wellington. Don't forget your sunnies, your scarf and your camera!
We have the largest shopping centre in Tasmania at the bottom of our street, a 7 minute easy walk down the hill and about a 12 minute solid challenging walk back up the hill.
We also have an easy 10-15 minute walk down to the Kangaroo Bay waterfront walk which meanders around the coast to Bellerive Beach past Bellerive Village, a quaint collection of shops by the yacht club. Lots of fabulous eateries including a fish punt with the best fish & chips around. Here you can also catch a water ferry over to town, to the casino and/or Salamanca.
Nowhere is too far in Hobart and our house looks straight across the river to the city with a bus right outside our door taking about 15minutes to the CBD. We are a 20 minute drive from the airport and about a 20 minute drive from the Richmond wineries, a must on anyone's 'must do' list.
Other Things to Note
If you stay over 5 days you are welcome to use our washing machine. We are not fans of using the dryer - sorry, not even in winter! so we have provided a rack in your room to hang any washing up.
Just treat the room with respect, as you would your own home. Lights and heaters off while out. We don't expect you to make your bed each day if you don't want - be comfortable and enjoy your holiday.
It was a genuine pleasure being a guest of Jim and Lenka's. They were both very hospitable and sociable, and they also allowed for my privacy. The accommodation itself was second to none. Ensuite, minibar, desk, comfy bed, fast wifi, hot and strong shower ... there's really not much more one can ask for! But, of course, if you do need anything, Jim and Lenka are all ears.
Brilliant! Loved our stay with Jim and Lenka. From the moment Jim met us on his driveway and helped carry our bags we felt totally relaxed and at home with them. They were welcoming, warm and supportive. The accomodation is wonderful - very comfortable and every need supplied. So appreciated Jim and Lenka's advice and suggestions for places to go and things to see. Their place is a great central location to see Hobart and all surrounds. Highly recommend staying with this lovely family.
Jim 1st welcomed Marilyn & I at the accommodation and we then met with his family. Jim made a number of recommendations re: restaurants and public transport and held himself open for further information to be sought. Jim invited us into his home and we met with Jim's family. The property is an elevated site which lends to the views, and appears to be in a newer area with modern brick housing. The accommodation is in close proximity to a large local shopping centre and a variety of restaurants on the coast at Bellerive. More than comfortable accommodation true to description.
Great location, nice room. Hosts Jim and Lenka were very hospitable - Jim has an encyclopediac knowledge of Hobart and Tasmania so they were very helpful in planning our days. This place is also a must for crazy dog lovers as their two dogs Kenny and Roy are so cute and friendly.
We absolutely loved our stay with Jim, Lenka, their gorgeous baby girl and 2 lovely puppies. From the moment we drove in, we felt like we were part of the family or long-lost friends. Lenka and Jim are amazing, kind-hearted, very welcoming and friendly people. They gave us breakfast provisions to last us for the entire stay and we were most welcome to use the upstairs area.
The room downstairs is totally gorgeous - spacious, modern, with the most comfortable bed I ever slept in and with a beautiful bathroom with soft towels. The view from the balcony ustairs is spectacular.
The property is centrally located and easily accessible by public transport. There is a huge shopping centre a couple of minutes away, which is really handy. If you are thinking of eating out in the area, try Cugina - mouth-watering Italian dishes and very friendly staff.
Jim has so much knowledge about Tasmania and will gladly suggest places to visit. We benefited greatly from his advice and got to see stunning places that we previously didn't know about. Thank you, Jim, for your advice and for the lovely coffee in the morning.
After staying with Jim and Lenka, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we visit Hobart. Thank you both for you hospitality, we hope to see you again soon.
This was our first Airbnb experience and it could not have been better. Jim and Lenka were amazing hosts. Jim was very helpful with his knowledge of Hobart and Tasmania. Everything we needed was available. Loads of breakfast goodies and the apartment was clean and comfortable.
Their home is very conveniently located to shopping center and restaurants and has easy access to downtown Hobart whether or not you have a car.
Super friendly hosts with a baby daughter who has a million dollar smile and two friendly dogs. Highly recommended for your stay in Tasmania.
We received a very warm welcome from Jim and Lenka, their two happy dogs and the beautiful baby girl, Zoya.
The studio was exactly as photographed, with a very modern bathroom, comfortable bed and very pleasant surroundings. Jim and Lenka supplied breakfast staples daily (cereals, juice, milk, fruit, yoghurt, soft drinks, tea/coffee etc + lollies).
They are very centrally located overlooking Hobart and surrounds. A great base to travel in an direction. Very close to transport, local cafes and the waterfront at Bellerive.
We had a great stay at Bellerive and will definitely come back. Highly recommended.
