A really special place.

  • 5 of 5

We were given a wonderfully warm welcome by Janina and Gary who are both most interesting people. The location is stunning with water views from the front of the property to a magnificent view of Mt Wellington from the bedroom window.

The apartment is extremely comfortable and well appointed. The Sandy Bay shopping centre is only a few minutes drive away and has some good restaurants too. We hope to stay there again in the not to distant future.

Warm and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome and were very impressed with the delightful apartment in an absolutely beautiful cottage garden. The apartment was spotless and the location amazing with stunning views of Hobart and the Derwent River from the front garden. We certainly would love to return when we get the chance.

Well appointed apartment

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week at Sonningview. The apartment is very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Washing machine and dryer are very handy when away for more than a few days. Having breakfast in bed I could see Mt. Wellington. If I took my breakfast to the front terrace I had a view of the Derwent River and beyond. We were celebrating our 50th Wedding anniversary and our friendly and informative hosts Janina and Gary invited us to their upstairs living room which has uninterrupted views over the river, casino and cruise ship docked at the pier. A champagne celebration awaited which was much appreciated. Good local restaurants and, in particular at Constitution Dock, Peacock and Jones provided an exceptional meal for our wedding anniversary. I would thoroughly recommend Sonnongview when planning a visit to Hobart.
