About the property

HOME ON GEORGE with its traditional Georgian facade delightfully opens into a spacious modern interior. Home comforts provide a place where you and your family or friends can truly relax during your stay. The large living spaces are ideal for spending time with friends and family, and for small reunions for those special celebrations. You have the entire home to yourselves.

You are close to NORTH HOBART cafes, pubs, restaurants, State Cinema, galleries and shops. It is only a 5 minute walk away. The house is in a quiet street, in a friendly neighbourhood and once you are inside you have total privacy.

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 main bedroom upstairs is a lovely space, with an adjoining ensuite and opening onto a private rooftop deck with great views. There is also a television in this bedroom.

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.

You can wash your clothes in the LAUNDRY in the front loader washing machine. There is also a laundry trough, a clothes dryer and out door drying lines. An ironing board and iron are here for you to use too.

For your YOUNGSTERS we can provide a porta cot, high chair and safety gate on the stairs. Please let us know if you would like us to put the baby gear out for you.

HOUSE TRAINED PETS are welcome and we have a medium sized PVC dog kennel available if required. It is a short walk to SOUNDY PARK or a little longer up to QUEEN'S DOMAIN for you to exercise your dog.

For your CONVENIENCE you will find the SUPERMARKET close by, a choice of BOTTLE SHOPS, PETROL STATIONS and other everyday shops such as WINNINGS NEWSAGENT in Elizabeth Street.

The MINIMUM STAY is 2 nights. CHECK OUT: 10am CHECK IN: 2.30pm onwards; there are also parking spaces in the street in Mon - Fri 3 hr and 2 hr time zones which are unmetered and free.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

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.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing time staying at this property. The owners obviously spent a lot of thought, time and effort in making this house a comfortable home for their guests. It was well equipped and not lacking in provisions. It was spacious, clean, tastefully furnished and close to shops and restaurants. We would certainly like to stay at this property the next time that we visit Hobart.

An enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults and 1 toddler had a wonderful stay at Home on George. It is much nicer in real life than in the pictures! We enjoyed the lovely little garden out front, cosy rooms, and the well supplied and organised kitchen. The location was very convenient with easy access to eateries, supermarkets, and town. Christine was quick to respond to my requests and queries, and all arrangements were perfectly made for our arrival. We have many happy memories of our stay there!
