My small well equipped flat is in the peaceful and pretty garden behind my 100 year old Federation cottage with a view of Mt Wellington. The comfy bed will be made with good quality bed linen, extra pillows and towels are provided. The kitchenette has a microwave, a hotplate, 2 electric frying pans, a sandwich toaster, a regular toaster and an electric saucepan plus an exhaust fan. In the quietness and privacy of the garden you would never guess you are so close to a busy area.There is a bus stop just a few metres down the street and the local shopping centre with supermarkets, banks, post office, laundromat and all the usual shops is 3 or 4 minutes walk away and it's little more than 5 minutes to the university. A short walk can have you at the water's edge and see the majesty of the Derwent River and one of the many marinas on the river.
If you don't wish to cook there are plenty of reasonably priced eateries and take-aways just a couple of minutes down the street. Take your pick from Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian or Australian.
The city of Hobart is just a 10 to 15 minute walk or a quick bus trip.
Historic Battery Point and Salamanca Place are very close by and are delightful to wander around and shop or explore the lovely coffee shops. Every Saturday there is a world class market at Salamanca so I'd suggest you put that on your 'to do' list.
The flat is very clean and compact and has everything you would need. There is a double bed in a separate bedroom with plenty of storage, a small sitting room with flat screen TV, DVD player, wi-fi ,international adapters,and a well equipped small kitchenette . The bathroom has a shower,a small bath,heater,scales, fan and hairdryer.
Guests are welcome to use the outdoor setting and barbecue when the weather is suitable.Free parking is available outside on the street.
The unit is available for bookings of 3 nights or more. For bookings longer than a week arrangements can be made for a change of bed linen. Interim cleaning can also be arranged for long bookings, however, there is a cleaning cost involved.The information in regard to weekly and monthly costs only relate to non peak periods.
I always have the basics of salt and pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, cooking oil , spices etc in the pantry.
During summer there is a barbeque available to guests and an outside table and chairs. guests are also welcome to use the clothes line.

We felt immediately welcome by Judith on arrival.
The cozy cottage was gorgeously and stylishly appointed.
it is very quiet and private and close to all amenities. It was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable with quality bed linen. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay in hobart and the unit was so well equipped with everything we might need. The neighbourhood was lovely and quiet and nice to walk around. We would recommend Judith's unit to anyone planning on visiting hobart!
Had a lovely stay at Judith's place. Small but cosy unit in great location, easy walk into City and Sandy Bay area with access to shops and restaurants. Judith was a great host who even surprised me with a birthday cake and homemade biscuits - special. Would recommend to friends and would definitely come again.
Quiet, cosy garden apartment very well located for visiting Hobart and all the amenities of Sandy Bay area.
Wonderful stay, welcomed to a lovely snug cottage with supplies in the fridge and everything we might have needed. Great location, walking distance to supermarket, cafes etc. Judith is a great host and we'd love to stay again when next in Hobart.
We had a lovely stay with Judith - she was pleasant and accommodating, and the guest suite was very clean and tidy. We wouldn't hesitate recommending our friends to stay here when visiting Hobart.
We had a beautiful time at Judith's place. She made us feel very welcome. We had come for a romantic Valentine weekend and it certainly was! We had little hearts scattered around, fresh home baked heart shaped cookies, as well as beautiful fresh roses - not to mention the fresh eggs, milk, butter and jam. The extra touches that Judith puts in really makes the difference. It was a beautiful cosy place with a lovely little garden area outside. Great location, so close to everything, with ample reading information to get you out and about. The kitchen is small but fully functional - we cooked a few times and had fresh produce breakfast in the garden. Thank you Judith for sharing your beautiful space.
I am a happy , generous person and have spent my life involved in the food and media business. I love to travel and am particularly interested in Italian food. I love singing and sing alto in an ACapella choir. Reading and movies are great loves of mine and, during the winter months, I enjoy knitting by the fire which I do on a very small commercial scale.I find it to be very meditiative.
Becoming a grandmother is the best thing that has happened to me- I'm fortunate that my two grandchildren live nearby and we have a great time together, especially in the kitchen.
I am a proud Tasmanian and delight in sharing information about the treasures we have in this very picturesque island. I'm also happy to pass on info about local eateries, galleries and museums.
I enjoy meeting people and learning about the world. My unit is separate to my hundred year old Federation cottage so, if privacy is preferred, i will leave you alone but am also happy to exchange travel experiences with guests and pass on any informtion to make the stay in Australia happy and memorable.
