The Space

My house is a very short walk to the quaint centre of Battery Point along with it's fantastic eateries, historic buildings and views down the river. A mere stroll to Salamanca which I can wander around for a whole morning!!!! Or the business centre of Hobart.
A 1905 old school building with high ceilings makes it feel grander than it's footprint. A courtyard/deck could see you partaking in brekky overlooked by Mt Wellington.
The sunny private bedroom has a relaxing area upstairs - great place to read a book in the sun, and a double futon bed downstairs with desk area if needed.
The house has amenities of TV, internet, heating, eat in kitchen and separate dinning room, and lounge. Plus the friendly cat who will greet you if she is around.!
Central to everything on offer around Hobart.
I love cooking so would enjoy sharing meals or you could may be able to use the facilities.
You can look up the Tassie trips you can do elsewhere. Having lived in Tassie for 22 years - I have lots of local knowledge to share.

Guest Access

There is a lounge, and eat-in kitchen which has my office/work/junk space!!! All of which you are most welcome to share with me.
Also a joint bathroom in the centre of the place is well appointed.

Interaction with Guests

I'm a shift working at the hospital and work permanent night duty. If I'm rostered on, I leave at 21.30 and return around 0800 to crawl into bed for a sleep until 1630 if working again or earlier if not. I sleep through most things but but unusual sleeping times do need to be considered. Most people are out sight seeing so it has never been an issue.

The Neighborhood

What can you say about one of the oldest villages in Australia with its beautiful cottages and magnificent large homes overlooking the river. It has a village atmosphere with some lovely eateries and tempting shops.
If water is your thing: well the docks are only 10min stroll, with fishing boats and sailing ships to fill your heart.
Art/Markets - that 10 min stroll takes you into Salamanca and the Mona Ferry and access to all the music and food festivals Hobart is famous for.

Getting Around

Staying here and doing Hobart only is by foot! If you want to venture afield you can organise a tour which usually pick up just at the end of my street (50m). Cars can be parked on the street with 3 hour parking and very rare inspectors!
Getting from the airport: Taxi is about 15-20 mins and around $45 in the day. Bus is approx $18 per person and drops at end of road, after lots of other drop offs, so you get to see the city.

House Rules

I expect my guests to look after my place as well as or better than their own home. I don't expect there to be gatherings - but talk to me and we can sort something out. I love living here and don't mind sharing with like minded people.
