You will have a very private and modern renovated double room downstairs away from the main part of the house.
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.
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.
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 20minutes to the CBD. There's street parking across the road from our home should you have a hire car.
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 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.
A great stay in a comfortable warm and inviting environment. Well placed to Hobart and shops on the eastern shore. Made to feel most welcome by the hosts and their 2 dogs.
We spent 7 nights with Jim and Lenka. They were very welcoming and friendly and made our stay a very pleasant one. We had never been to Tasmania before and their information and advice was much appreciated.
Our room was impressive and everything that was advertised. The view also was wonderful. We would certainly stay there again.
Lenka and Jim are the hosts of careful and thoughtful.We got the warm hospitality,and tow small dogs too fun,really value the experience.Thanks Jim again for his beer.
Our host Jim was very welcoming. Our stay was short and intense due to family circumstances. We were thrilled with the easy and private entrance to our room. The room was very high quality and comfortable.
Jim and Lenka, have a beautiful home with views over the Derwent River
My room was large, very luxurious, Tv , fridge , filled with milk orange juice , breakfast cereals, yogurts, magnificent ensuite.
JIim and Lenka are very welcoming and a lovely couple
The room is very peaceful, and I slept very well.
I really enjoyed my stay, and would highly recommend them
Jim drove me to the airport when I was leaving.
Thank you Jim and Lenka
Jim and Lenka have created a wonderfully well equipped , private space within their fantastically located house.
Everything you need to ensure a comfortable and easy stay, is there at your fingertips. Loads of local travel guides and information on transport, well stocked fridge, a wet room to die for, huge comfy, bed you really were home from home.
On meeting Jim and Lenka you instantly feel as if you are with friends. They cannot do enough to make your stay with them enjoyable and entertaining. Both have an extensive knowledge of the island, it's beauty spots, best eateries and attractions. Just ask for what you want and it is instantly provided.
A true pleasure to have stayed, just wished it could have been for longer.
Jim and Lenka were so friendly. They are the perfect hosts. Lenka refurnished the room downstairs into a big hotelroom. She did a great job with that. Their 2 dogs are really funny and hughable. Got great tips for things to visit and where to have dinner in hobart and other towns. Thanks for that. Next time we would defenitely stay again at their place.
Jim and Lenka and "the boys" (the gorgeous fur kids) made my stay an absolute delight, going out of their way to make me feel welcome, picking me up at the airport, and even taking me on a day trip, They are such a warm and friendly couple. The large modern room is ideal with fridge, TV (foxtel too) kettle and desk and a huge bathroom. You are made very welcome in the main house which has a fantastic view of Mt Wellington, Hobart city, the bridge and the harbour. Shopping centre very close as is the bus with a short ride into town.
I may be lucky enough to have made two new enduring friends - sorry, make that four (apologies Roy and Kenny).
Jim and Lenka are thoughtful and considerate hosts who went over and above to ensure that my stay was comfortable and that I had everything I needed. Lenka took me for a drive of the local area which was very helpful. One day when I was running late, Jim drove me into town to catch a ferry The accommodation is superb, offering complete privacy, but with the opportunity to spend time with Jim and Lenka and the "boys", Kenny and Roy. The view is stunning and there are long walks along the foreshore to be enjoyed. I hope I have the opportunity to visit Hobart and Jim and Lenka again. Fran
Jim and Lenka are wonderful hosts! Looked out for me and shared great meals. The 'boys' (cockers) are warm and funny. You will work those glute and leg muscles on the hill as well. Perfect place to be alone or interact with Jim and Lenka. I miss them already.
