Bruce's apartment was a real find, my daughter and I loved it. From breakfast in the morning to the wonderful advice on getting the most out of our stay in Hobart. The apartment is set in a beautiful garden, it is clean and very functional. We loved the location and were able to set out on foot daily, one day into the city, one day into the bush!
We couldn't have been luckier to stay with Bruce. The house is in the perfect location within Hobart—easy to get everywhere using your car or your legs, and the house is even more beautiful in real life than it is in the photos. Make sure you leave some quality time to enjoy your room and the view of the garden, it's very tranquil and the neighbourhood is quiet despite being quite close to the city centre. Bruce is so easy to talk to, very helpful with local tips and breakfast with him every morning was definitely a highlight of our trip. Whenever we're in Hobart next, we know where we'll be staying. :)
Bruce's home was lovely, we very much enjoyed our stay here. He had a great self-contained area at the back of his house that we enjoyed staying in. It provided privacy, but we were still nearby if we needed anything. We were given breakfast in his dining room, which was a very delicious and thoughtful spread fresh from the bakery. For our quick weekend trip to visit the MONA gallery, Bruce's accommodation was perfect. Highly recommend, in a great location!
The host was very welcoming and helpful. The room was as described and very clean and comfortable. It was nicely located and easy to find. It had a private entrance. The gardens were beautiful. Unfortunately we arrived later in the day and had to leave very early to catch our flight. We would highly recommend Bruce's accommodation.
Bruce had set up the garden studio beautifully with everything needed to make our 5 day stay comfortable. In particular, the utilities room is great, the bed very comfortable and the welcome touches of tea, coffee, biscuits etc appreciated. The garden surrounds are beautiful and contribute to the peacefulness of the place. We enjoyed chatting with Bruce each morning over coffee and croissants fresh from the bakery and picking up tips for the day's sightseeing. We would certainly recommend this Airbnb to our friends and also stay again ourselves.
lovely place and big big garden. the room has a private entrance and everything. my gf loves the taste of the decoration
Bruce is very nice and a very good host. we had a great meal,recommend by Bruce, that only cost $10 for a steak.
We wish we can stay for longer .
Absolutely beautiful house! The garden suite with private entrance was wonderful. It was like having your own place with a huge garden. The bedroom comes with an attached shower area and wash area and offers a lovely view of the garden through a large window. The bed is comfy and there's Aesop shower gel. The small living area is cosy and also offers unobstructed view of the beautiful garden lets in lots of natural light. Bruce provides a simple breakfast of freshly baked croissant with jam, fruit juice and coffee and tea. I love the quince jam. He also gives suggestions of places to eat and visit. A lovely and friendly host.
Great host and a great & safe location! Easy walk to Salamanca Market and a quick drive up Mt Wellington (ABSOLUTE A MUST TO VISIT!).
Hungry? Grab a bite nearby the house (shamrock hotel's $10 meals recommended by Bruce. Remember to make reservation either by phone or walk-in booking! It's usually packed).
Unfortunately we did not get to sleep in the main guest room for our 3 nights, but overall it was still a good stay (love all the antiques & architecture). Room does gets a little chilly at night so be sure to wrap yourself in layers.
Thanks Bruce for being such a great host! Keep in contact!

It was an absolute delight staying at Bruce's garden studio! Bruce was a gracious and helpful host and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The studio was perfect in every respect. Very private, warm and cosy, a deliciously comfortable bed, perfectly clean and fabulous water pressure in the shower - very important!! No detail was overlooked and our morning coffee + pastry was a lovely surprise. His home is stunning as is his garden. Definitely a home away from home... when visiting Hobart again I'll look forward to staying here again. Thank you Bruce!
AMAZING. Bruce is absolutely lovely. I found myself chatting with him well past my intended breakfast time. The house is gorgeous and immaculate and the private quarters are indeed very private. Lovely linens (a girl notices!), gorgeous gardens. All in all probably my favorite Airbnb experience!
