The space

The accommodation is a modern purpose built private secure studio totally self contained in a bush setting with mountain views. We are located in the foothills of Mt Wellington just 12 minutes from Hobart's city centre and 5 minutes from the beachside suburb of Kingston. The studio has its own bathroom and kitchen with, heaps of parking and its own outdoor area. Our neighbourhood consists of people who want to live on acreage, in private surroundings but close to the city. We are well travelled early retirees, who spend our days in the garden and bush walking. To stay with us however you will need your own transport, as the nearest public transport is a 3 kilometre walk.
Our home is approximately 100 metres from the studio.
There are a number of mountain walks within close proximity, some very easy and others more challenging. These can range from short walks to day trips depending on your needs.Or if it's Summer and you want the seaside, you are only 5-6 minutes away at Kingston Beach or Blackmans Bay.
At the top of our road is a fabulous "country style" mountain tavern with lunches and dinner 7 days a week. At the other end of the road (Kingston) you have all the restaurants and fast food outlets you need. '
MOBILE PHONE coverage is excellent

Guest access

Guest are welcome to use the grassed area outside the kitchen window and the areas immediately in front and to the rear of the studio.

Interaction with guests

The interaction with guests is purely dependent on their wish to do same, save for their arrival and departure.

The neighborhood

The area is predominantly bush/rural but is close to the city and suburban Hobart area. There is a tavern at one end of the road (FERN TREE) and McDonalds, KFC, Hungry Jacks and Dominos at the other (KINGSTON)

Getting around

If you wish to use bus transport to Hobart city this can be accessed at the Fern Tree end and there is parking near the bus stop. We are about 3kms from the Tavern and 6kms from the fast food end.

Other things to note

There is a boundary electric fence which comes on at dusk. This is used to deter wildlife from climbing the fence to access the garden area and building roofs. It does not kill wildlife but gives them a sufficient warning. THE FENCE WHILE IT IS SOME DISTANCE FROM THE ACCOMMODATION IS NOT TO BE TOUCHED AT ANY TIME.......

We really enjoyed our time at Phil's place. The outlook over Mt Wellington is beautiful. We found the property no problems and although it is a bit out of the way, that is the very thing we loved about it! The study is very cosy with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

This little one bedroom cottage has it all but somehow is still down to earth. We really enjoyed it here for two weeks. I highly recommend a stay here. Private bush paradise.

Highly recommend staying here. It's in a lovely quiet area. Loved the fireplace and Phil lit it for us every night before we got home so we loved coming back to a nice warm place when it was cold outside. We will be back!

Phil and Sue has a wonderful, quiet and peaceful property. It is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable with all the modern amneties. There is nothing better than having a glass of wine in front of the fireplace at the end of the day. I would highly recommend staying at this lovely cabin which is only a 5-10 min drive to the nearest town and about 15 mins from Hobart CBD. Thanks again Phil and Sue we will be back.

Great location with fantastic views - of the Aussie bush and to the top of Mt Wellington. Welcomed warmly by Phil and Sue. A comfortable cottage perfectly suited to a quiet few days away. A few minutes drive to shops, beach and cafes. Loved the wood fire - just what we needed in the February cold snap!!

Phil's place is a secluded bush getaway, on a beautiful property with great mountain views. Phil was a great host, who was easy to communicate with and had lit a fire for us before we arrived. The location is about a 20 minute drive from Central Hobart, close to Mt Wellington walks, but still easy to get into the city (car needed). Would recommend!
