Great property & Wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Skye was a wonderful host, friendly and keen to make sure we had all we needed. The house was cosy, comfortable and spotless. Comfortable beds and crisp linen were much appreciated. The views from the verandah were beautiful. Loved the Italian restaurant around the corner and very convenient to other shops and pubs. Will definitely be back again to stay.

Good location

We enjoyed our stay at Hobart Art House and the host was very attentive. It was clean and comfortable and well located in the hills above the Hobart CBD with views out to the Derwent below.

Perfect week long stay in Hobart

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three friends were in Hobart for the Festival of Voices. We stayed at Hobart Art House for 8 nights and were so happy with our choice.

The house itself is a stunning cottage that has been well furnished and beautifully decorated. The art work and objects adorning the house sit well alongside the beautiful green garden and courtyard which offers privacy, peace and quiet. Everything has been thought through. There were four of us but we never felt crowded, the house has a number of lovely spaces including a bright bay window perfect for a book. I was forced to work a bit while we were away but the view from the desk in the lounge room is a serene vista of Hobart suburbs and the water. Wifi was fast and efficient.

The house was clean when we arrived and all amenities were available and working. It was a mild winter week and though cold outside it was very easy to keep the house cosy and warm. Kitchen was well stocked, we had a number of large meals in but didn't want for anything in terms of utensils or kitchenware. The local supermarket was well stocked for last minute forgotten ingredients. We regularly strolled into and around town for hours on end and if we were too tired to walk back to the house, all cab drivers were happy to take us the short and cheap trip home from the city center.

Skye was a very helpful and accommodating host who helped us organise the trip around the festival and our commitments. Would gladly return here for another stint in Hobart, especially for a longer stay.

Wonderful family stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 8 year old son and I stayed 5 nights at this lovely cottage on a recent holiday to Hobart. Skye was a thoughtful host who communicated promptly every time. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a relaxed and calming feel. It was very well appointed with everything we needed to cook family meals and to make us feel at home. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was huge with good water pressure and hot water every time. The views of the city and harbour are lovely and it is just a few minutes by car to anywhere in the city. Our first trip to Hobart was even more special having stayed at HAH. We highly recommend HAH.

Beautiful and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The Hobart Art House is a little gem of a house in lovely West Hobart, well fitted out with provisions and with comfortable furniture. We especially enjoyed the window seat for reading, and the big shower.
