Absolutely stunning location and lovely hosts, will definitely be back
Warm inviting cottage with the most amazing waterfront view. Well appointed kitchen with everything you need for simple self catering. Fantastic picture window in the lounge area to take in the views across the water to Hobart. Easy 15 min drive to the city with local shop within walking distance. Comfortable kind size bed with good bathroom facilities. Lovely outdoor seating areas to have a glass of wine and take in the view. Highly recommend.
We had a lovely stay. The owners were so helpful and friendlyvThe house was spotlessly maintained. The views across the Derwent were spectacular. It is a prettyv10 minute trip over the bridge to Hobart city. I would highly recommend this property. Thank you Sue and Doug.
Perfect water location
We were very happy with our stay. Loved being on the water - great walking track; walking distance to supermarket. Easy drive over the bridge to the city. Very clean cottage with everything you need for a short stay. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Perfect being able to bring our poodle too.
We visited Shack on the Edge for two nights and wished our stay was longer.
The view across the Derwent to Hobart is spectacular at any time of day or night.
The harbour is right in front of the shack - you can't get any closer!
The shack was absolutely spotlessly clean and well appointed.
Will definitely visit again.
Thoroughly recommend this property.
The Shack has everything we needed for our ten day stay. Quiet and comfortable, view is so beautiful ! Plenty of room. Hosts helpful and friendly. Very well situated for everywhere we wanted to go. We'll be back for sure.
Position and views
So close to the CBD and the best view in Hobart. What a great find. We are now looking for an excuse to come back to Hobart just so we can stay here.
