Janina and Gary made us very welcome and we instantly felt at home. Nothing seemed too much bother for them. There was a lovely welcome pack of essentials and we very much appreciated the washing and ironing facilities after being on the go for 10 days.
It was such a peaceful setting, yet also very convenient for discovering the southern part of Tasmania.
We left feeling we had made some new friends.

This one bedroom flat attached to the main property sits high on a hill overlooking Sandy Bay. The views are just stunning. The owners are charming and very helpful. One does need a car, though, unless Uber or Lyft are now available as shopping and restaurant districts are quite a long walk away. The price was quite reasonable.

Management response:

I am happy to report Uber is now operating in Hobart but generally our guests are arriving with either their own car or a rented car. And buses pass by our property in both directions.

About the neighbourhood
Scenic views are the keystone to Hobartidentity and the Derwent River which flows 240km from the Lake St Clair to the southern outlet accommodates every type of vessel from Tall ships, multi storey tourist ships to hundreds of local yachts and dinghies. Two big events are the annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and the Tall Ships race during the Wooden Boat Festival which is the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere with over 500 boats of all types on display from all over Australia and the US and Europe. Music, food and wine are always part of the celebrations and the atmosphere around the port is amazing.

The Derwent also hosts the Humpback whales who are again feeding in the Derwent and many more dolphins are swimming in close to the beaches of Sandy Bay or frolicking around the river...

Getting around
Buses travel past our property which take you to all parts of Hobart and south but of course if time is short your own car is the best option. Uber has come to Hobart. A ferry from Hunter St wharf takes you to MONA if you wish. For energetic travellers buses and walking are the main forms of transport if you choose not to bring a car. We provide all the bus schedules. Bicycles are for hire downtown. Kayaks can be hired for a bit of exercise and to explore the Derwent River.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Hobart: 20.0 km
Ferry: Devonport: 280.0 km
We are 20 km from the airport. Taxis from Hobart Airport or a Transit bus is the least expensive option and will stop off in the city and finally at Wrest Point Hotel Casino. A bus to Sonningview is just 3km away but we would arrange to collect you at no charge. Car hire pre booked for collection from the airport is available by several hire companies. A stop off at Battery Point is along the way to our place. Handy if you are passing through during Salamanca's famous Saturday outdoor market.
