If you are heading to the city for theatre, concerts, shopping, dining and sightseeing then it is just a 20-minute walk. Take you car and it is only 5 minutes with parking available in numerous council and private car parks at very reasonable rates.

The buses to the city on Metro buses are every 10 minutes at bus stops on Elizabeth Street.

Home on George has 3 LARGE BEDROOMS with queen or double beds and there is also a single bed in one of the rooms downstairs.. Each bedroom has a heater, wardrobes, bedside tables and lamps, and other furniture.

The two BATHROOMS have fantastic showers, a toilet and hand basin / vanity and room for all your personal toiletries, etc. Shampoo, conditioner and soap are supplied.

Our KITCHEN is well supplied with all the pots, pans, non-fat griller, utensils, dishes, glasses, cutlery and serving plates, coffee plunger, tea pots, etc that you will need if you want to cook and entertain. The kitchen window opens to a view of the private courtyard garden; it also flows to the dining table in the LIVING ROOM.

The SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM is furnished with a large comfy leather lounge, a lovely sofa and armchair and tables, lamps and storage cupboards. This room is heated with a heat pump (air conditioner in the summer if you need it) and a wood-heater lookalike fueled by natural gas which gives the room a lovely warmth and cosy feel. There is a drawer full of DVDs, books, magazines, maps and some board games for you to enjoy.

What a lovely and clean home! It was spacious enough to accommodate nine of us and the kitchen was also well equipped. Situated in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood yet not far from the city and airport. My family and I definitely enjoyed our stay here! Thank you Christine and Rod for making sure we settled in well and thank you for loaning your beautiful house!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and spacious home. Well equipped with everything we needed. Fantastic location close to restaurants and shops. An easy walk into the city to weekend markets and to catch the ferry to Mona (highly recommended). Thank you Christine and Rod. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Hobart.

Better than expected. It's got everything!

  • 5 of 5

Folks I booked 5 houses on Stayz for WA 60s hockey team. 4 of us ended up in this one & everyone else was.... well, jealous. "how good is this" is what we said on entering & checking all the rooms. Quiet, comfortable, A touch of luxury & everything you need is there. Wonderful hosts who will do anything to make you happy. Everyone slept well & the house was lovely & warm even when it was freezing outside. Better than it looks guaranteed.

Very good

We have a very good holiday experience staying in the house. The upper balcony deck was absolutely our best choice for gathering under the warm sunlight.
