Our home

Our home is ideally situated in a beautiful area of Hobart Tasmania called Sandy Bay. The location is perfect because it is walking distance to the shops (400 mts) cafes and beach and 10 minutes drive to the centre of Hobart. The home faces NE so it gets the morning sun. We enjoy our morning coffee watching the sunrise over the bay. Moonrises can be stunning on a clear night, reflecting on the water.
The neighbourhood is peaceful and very beautiful. From our windows we enjoy 180 degrees views of the sea. The stunning views can be enjoyed from the moment you enter the house, including the kitchen, dining, living room and two of the bedrooms and ensuite bathroom. The third bedroom and bathroom looks out to a private garden. Our home is modern and spacious and the balcony is large and private. We love watching the sailing boats passing our home whilst we cook our bbq and relax with a drink with friends or family. The large garden is visited by wallabies, possums and birds and we have a nice little orchard with various fruit trees. There is a private carpark for two cars. A bus stop is less than 5 minutes walk from our house.

Who we are

  1. Our names are Paul and Marianne. We are active retirees who enjoy travelling, hiking, bike riding, reading, gardening, music, art, spending quality time with family and friends and playing with our delightful grandkids. We have two wonderful children, a daughter aged 38 and a son aged 40. We have two adorable grandchildren. We mostly travel as a couple but once a year we travel as a family.

  2. Both Paul and I retired recently from our 20 year business as wine importers. Prior to forming our business, Paul worked as a senior manager in Logistics and I worked in Finance.

  3. We love travelling and exploring the world and have been lucky to have visited many beautiful places and meet wonderful people.
    It is nice to travel to new places but we always love coming home to Tasmania, our favourite state in Australia. We feel lucky to live in this extraordinary island, marked by geological contrasts, ancient rainforests, craggy peaks, glacial lakes, stunning beaches, unique flora and wild animals, who call this wilderness island home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Why do we love our home? The air and water in Hobart are so pure.
Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania yet it has no traffic jams and has a relaxed way of life. In every direction you see hills and the city is framed between Mt Wellington and the Derwent Estuary,
In January the Hobart festive atmosphere begins with the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and the Taste of Tasmania wine and food Festival. The waterfront has many excellent restaurants, art galleries cafes and bars. It is also the starting point for tours to Peppermint Bay, Bruny Island, Port Arthur and the ferry to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art).
Salamanca market is held each Saturday where food produce, local art and craft and basquers add to an experience not to be missed.
The Theatre Royal is the oldest in Australia. Close to the city is the Botanic Gardens which overlooks the estuary. Stunning national parks as well as historic villages are scattered throughout the island. Tasmania has unique animals, such as the Tasmanian devil, quoll etc. If short of time, you can see them at Bonorong Wildlife park.
The TSO is a world class Symphony orchestra and many Hobartians, including Paul and I, enjoy going to the concerts.
In winter Hobart lights up with the Antartic mid winter Festival, Dark Mofo and the Festival of voices.
There are spectacular landscapes to explore further afield, such as the Tasman Peninsula, the Huon Valley, Mount Field NP, Hartz Mountains, East Coast which combined offer many bushwalks, swimming, vineyards, surfing, boating, wildlife and more.
In short, Tasmania is one of the most beautiful island in the world.
