Splendid luxury at the bottom of the world. A private self-contained apartment in a secluded wing of one of Australia's most historic houses with gorgeous water views.

See our other listings under Old Bishops Quarters. Free wifi and parking. Walking distance to Salamanca.

Tila
Stay in a spacious, beautifully appointed apartment in one of Australia’s most historic houses, formerly home to each Bishop of Tasmania for over 160 years until 2003. Built in the 1830s and set in about an acre of gardens on one of Hobart’s most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street. Unlike Battery Point/other central areas, we have plenty of free parking outside.

Free wifi, linen/towels and parking; accommodation only.

This 110 square metre apartment is completely self-contained at a secluded end of a 3 storey 10 bedroom family home. It comprises 1 queen bedded bedroom and 1 twin bedded bedroom (or double bed on request). Additional full sized single trundle beds can be requested.

There is a large lounge room and sumptuous underfloor heated bathroom on the first floor, divided off and separate from the rest of the house. The lounge has 30 square metres of beautiful dark polished original oak flooring and offers pleasant views across extensive gardens towards the Derwent River. Independent/dedicated access is through an attractive courtyard, separate entrance door and stairs.

The apartment has been fitted out to the highest possible standard. The fully tiled bathroom features a deep, natural stone bath, a wide floor-ceiling glass walled shower, underfloor heating and fluffy towels. A second bathroom is ensuite to the twin bedded room and is also fully tiled with underfloor heating. The apartment has hydronic heating, sound-proofing, draught-proofing and plenty of character. Heat is solar powered from a large scale solar array in the old orchard, supplemented by gas. And there's a hair dryer!

Cinema TV, iPad, Apple TV and Sonos hifi system with Spotify and Pandora unlimited music on demand are provided. The mini-kitchenette in the lounge room is equipped with a Fisher & Paykel single drawer dishwasher, bar fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee plunger (note: no cooking facilities).

Not a lot has changed in this house over the years, other than a major restoration project funded by the National Trust in the 1990s and now our efforts - especially heating! The house was designed in stages by two of Australia's most renowned architects in the 19th century, Henry Hunter and George Fagg. There are many stories about past owners, residents and guests including Field Marshall Montgomery of WW2 fame (check out our house on youtube - 'Monty in Love and War Part 1'), Lady Gowrie, every Anglican Bishop of Tasmania from mid-19th century to early 21st century, endless Governor-Generals, the first Attorney General of Tasmania, a good selection of Archbishops of Canterbury and York, and so on.

Bookings starting on a Thursday evening will usually only work for us if it includes the weekend as Friday is a very popular start date for weekend bookings. Weekend bookings generally must include a Friday for the same reason. No parties. Early check-in is often possible by prior arrangement.

Come and enjoy 21st century Hobart mixed with the 19th century!

Sandy Bay, Tasmania, Australia

The house is located on one of Hobart’s most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street. The area is great for walking around, brimming with heritage buildings.

Some of Hobart's top places to eat and drink are nearby within walking distance: JamJar, Pigeon Hole, Solo Pasta, Da Angelo's, Me Wah, The Duchess, Chillies, Jackman & McRoss Bakery.

There is a good bottle shop (liquor store/off-licence) and high quality food/deli store within 200 metres.

I am Australian and have lived in the UK and Japan. My husband, Dermot, grew up in Ireland and has lived in the UK and Australia. We love meeting people, having a laugh, fresh air, walking and cycling, beautiful scenery and great food and wine --- Tasmania! We are both involved in running our Airbnb apartments, having expanded since our initial listing in 2012. My career has been in healthcare (mainly midwifery) and my husband's in finance. We are keen travellers, especially if it involves sailing. We have four school age children so we are also good at keeping ourselves to ourselves, as appropriate. We have taken on the challenge of looking after this 19th century house, the Anglican Bishop's residence from the 1840s till recently, and spend a lot of time on it. I am particularly fond of searching for interesting pieces of forgotten furniture, making/growing things and trying to be creative in kitchen. Dermot is particularly mad about his growing solar thermal project in the orchard! We were drawn to Airbnb as we get to know a little about our house guests and vice versa. Also, we find that it connects us with people who are considerate and pleasant which is important!

Oleskelusi aikana

We are usually around and are here to help as much or as little as you would like. Some guests hardly ever see us as they are busy out and about. Some like to stop and have a chat when we see each other in the garden.

Please note that school run hours (8.30-9.30) and (2.30-4) are often tricky for us if you need to find us!
