About this listing
The beauty about where we are is the closeness to Hobart (12 minutes) and the suburb of Kingston (6 minutes) but you have the benefit of a tranquil bush setting. Enjoy the cool Summer afternoon sea breeze and the warmth of wood fire in the Winter !
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 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 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)
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.......
