My 1905 cottage is centrally located to experience 'Hobart by foot'. A double bed and room with loft space welcomes you on your visit. The house is warm and cosy with friendly, opportunistic cat to share your lap!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lisa was a fantastic host, the house comfortable and perfect for a stay in Hobart. The croissants for breakfast on the first morning were truly devine. We've fallen in love with Esmerelda the Leonine Calico cat. Thanks for helping to make our stay enjoyable.
Lisa was the most perfect hostess, tour guide, chef, and one-woman Tazzie welcoming party a gal could hope for. Her cozy, charming house has beautiful touches from her travels all over the world. She's perfectly set up for guests - laying out breakfast foods, tea, coffee; towels, linens, and even a summer and winter house robe, in case you need a little extra warmth. I had the pure pleasure of spending some time with my new favorite Hobartian on her days off, and she gave me the lay of the land - giving me advice on where to go and what to do. I can't thank her enough for her hospitality, friendship, and delightful cuisine.
What to say about Lisa and her gorgeous cottage? Nothing words can describe. Here is the little I can say: Her house is gorgeous, perfectly located - a brisk walk from Salamanca markets and Mona Ferry terminal. Breakfast, simply amazing. Lisa is a wonderful host. This was our first AirBnB experience, and we are so glad it was with her. Our only regret was to not have spent more time in the house, and share a longer conversation, and maybe a dinner with her. If you are staying in Hobart, look no further. This is the place you MUST stay!
Lisa and Esmeralda (the feline host) are wonderful hosts. They made us feel very welcome and at home. We felt like we had a home away from home staying here. Lisa was very busy with work commitments, so we didn't see her very much just a few hours at night. She's wonderful company and happy to pass on great knowledge and tips for travel, good food and places to go out out in the area.
The house is very cute and comfortable, very clean and has everything we needed. Great continental breakfast provisions were provided; muesli, yogurt, fruit and toast. Our room was quiet and comfortable and we slept very well.
The house is located in a quiet spot a short 5-10 minute walk to everything in Battery Point and Salamanca including Salamanca markets, great restaurants, bars, shops and art galleries. Unless you are leaving Hobart you don't really need a car if you stay here.
Lisa had a meal prepared for me the evening I arrived and I was invited to join her friends when thay came around. The listing is as described and in a super area, just 10minutes walk from Salamanca Square and on the edge of the beautiful lanes and houses of Battery point.
Lisa was fantastic, she provided us with a map of Hobart and additional information about the tourist sites which were very helpful in our short stay. Her place is so well located that we could just walking to the main sights. Thanks for all Lisa. :)

Lisa cooked me a meal the evening I arrived and was very helpful giving me a lift to meet the tour I was joining when I left.
The area is excellently positioned for getting around Hobart being just 5 minutes from Salamanca Sq. and Battery Point.

Hello I'm Lisa, I'm a mother of 2 who have flown the nest. I work as a nurse at the local public hospital.
I've lived in Hobart for some 22 years. Love food, travel and an active life, so know lots of lovely restaurants/cafes in and around Hobart. I also enjoy cooking so the kitchen is well equipped, as long as you clean up after you - go for it. We have some lovely food in Tassie.
My travels have been various, the usual for my era in Europe i.e. France,Spain, Germany. Italy, Croatia. I joined a community choir (cannot sing but make a noise) to do volunteer work in Uganda - WOW and put on a mountain gorilla trip Di Fossey type to Rwanda, that was life changing and I have some cute photos too! A couple of safari's in Kenya, South Africa and Botswana - but top shelf for me! Glamping the "tent" was larger than a small Paris apartment. My recommendation: save up for the best to see the safari animals, they cost alot to buy and look after.
I have family in UK so family activities like weddings call be back there and I cannot go that far without a quick trip to Paris!!!!!!
I've only done one Airbnb which was last one to Paris - it was great!
I own a friendly cat called Ezmarelda who also loves people; read she sees you coming!!! I'm really a dog person but you cannot leave a dog for a few days, where you can a cat.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy Tasmania.
Please ask for anything that will make your stay more enjoyable. I will try to accommodate your requests.
My motto - Helen Keller. 'Life is either a daring adventure or nothing'.
Come and stay.!
