With so many holiday properties to choose from in Hobart, making a choice can be very difficult. The moment you see Omaroo House, a very cute 1850’s cottage surrounded by flourishing roses it draws you in for a stay of comfort and convenience and you know you have made the right choice. It has a great location on the edge of the CBD within the Heritage Precinct of Hobart’s top rated suburb West Hobart so a car is not critical. It is a 5 minute walk to the city, 10 minute walk to Salamanca and Constitution Dock where the Sydney to Hobart yachts come in at the end of the race, so there are many excellent cafes, restaurants and bars. It is a 15 minute walk to vibrant North Hobart where there are more excellent cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs and of course shops. If you have a car all these places are only a couple minutes away and there is parking for 2 cars at the rear of the property plus parking on the street. So it is suitable for all kinds of guests, from couples to friends sharing, business professionals and especially welcoming for families.
On entry to the cottage is the original sitting/lounge room with a classic leather lounge suite, large flat screen TV and DVD player and a gas heater to keep you cosy in winter. To add to your relaxation there are books on the bookshelf and board games in the chest which all contribute to a great atmosphere.
From the lounge via the original 1850’s back door you enter the kitchen and dining area, where you have stunning panoramic views of the Derwent River. The dining table seats six and maximises these panoramic views and has another flat screen TV and the kitchen is fully equipped.
The main bedroom also has stunning panoramic views of Derwent River and the backyard which can be seen when you are lying in the Queen sized bed. The second bedroom has a Queen sized bed and the 3rd bedroom has a single bed and a rollout trundle bed which comes to the same height as the single bed.
Omaroo House is also child friendly as it has a portacot and a high chair and the bathroom has a shower over a mini-bath that can be used for babies and young children.
The back door takes you out to a lovely large garden again with panoramic views of the Derwent River and extra space for kids to play. The outdoor furniture allows you to maximise the enjoyment of these views whether are reading a book or enjoying a drink, there is also a BBQ.
Omaroo House combines the best of modern convenience with historic charm, and will make your stay in Hobart a memorable one, including famous Tasmanian fudge to welcome you on your arrival.
Tasmania’s top rated gourmet grocer, the famous Hill Street store which houses fresh local produce, fabulous deli, cheese room and local wines has many gourmet delights for any foodie and award winning West Hobart meats, parks and walking tracks are all close by.
No matter what you enjoy, there is something for everyone at Omaroo House.
