Description of our house
2 bedroom house in a village-like inner city suburb of Hobart, Tasmania. Suits 3 or 4 adults (non-smoking). House has one queen sized bedroom and one double bedroom. There is a single bed which can be set up in the study, 1 bathroom, lounge and, modern kitchen with eating/sitting area, a small garden, and sun deck and a lovely outlook to Mt Wellington and trees. I am a bit low-tech so I don't have a fantastically all mod-cons house, but there are all the things you would expect - washing machine, phone and broadband connection, TV, DVD recorder/player, CD, lots of books, microwave. Heating is electric, and there is an open fire in lounge. My sister is often happy to vacate our 3 bedroom, traditional, family friendly holiday house on the East Coast for you to have a few days there during your stay too. The house is in a large garden and is only 5 minutes walk from a huge surf beach and an estuary, with great bush walks nearby too. There is river and beach fishing, golf course, 'market town' within 30 min drive. It is a quiet spot, and you can sometimes be the only person on the beach! Super-relaxing.

Great local food shops, cafés, PO, petrol, bike shop, pub, very nearby. 15 minute walk to city centre and Hobart's beautiful waterfront. 20 minute drive to top of Mt Wellington, and local mountain bush-walks, and 1 hour from true wilderness. Hobart has a great array of restaurants, cafes, cinema, (a nice little independent cinema is a must visit), lovely theatre, a great Saturday market, wonderful arts and crafts, fabulous food and wine, (including lots of wineries within an hour's drive of Hobart). We have fantastic quality local produce - fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, dairy foods, and eating out is very cheap compared to many other places. Tasmania is a fantastic destination for those interested in the outdoors - kayaking, sailing, bush-walking, fishing, mountains, lakes, beautiful coasts, deep rainforest. We have a maritime, and therefore variable climate with winters around 12 degrees and summer in mid 20s, snow in the mountains in winter. Easy to get around all year though. A car is pretty much essential to see Tasmania. In area, it is about the size of Ireland, and it is mountainous, and about 1/3 of the island is uninhabited wilderness with no vehicle access further than its edges - and then it's get those boots on! Tasmanians are very friendly and service standards are good. There is a big range of accommodation options if you want to venture around the island, and I also have a 2 person tent if you want to be a bit more adventurous.
