A comfortable stay
A stylishly furnished garden apartment/cottage with all mod cons just big enough for 2 adults. Friendly hosts, comfortable bed and pretty and quiet location. Wallabies on the road at night but this is a convenient location 10 minutes from Battery Pt 15 mins from the city and 30 minutes from the airport. Good coffee and food options close by and the name and location of these are available with all the other sightseeing and tour info kept in the cottage. Good wifi as well. We’ll be back!
It is still amazes us that we have these adorable animals coming down from Mt Nelson to graze our neighbourhood at night yet close by is the city centre, Salamanca markets and excellent local cafes and restaurants in Sandy Bay.
Great location and wonderful hosts
Sonningview certainly lived up to our expectations and more. Janina & Gary were very welcoming hosts who made our stay very enjoyable. It was a home away from home. The apartment is well placed for going into the CBD as well as trips around Hobart. We enjoyed the Salamanca market, Battery Point, Richmond, Port Arthur and the Ball & Chain restaurant.
We like to 'meet and greet' our guests, share our own experiences of local places to visit and try to make Sonningview comfortable and cosy so our guests feel at home.
A really special place.
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.
So pleased you enjoyed your holiday at our place. It was lovely meeting you and Fiona and we look forward to seeing you again.
Warm and welcoming
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.

This apartment is a great spot for exploring Hobart and surrounds, much better than a hotel in the city. the lady owner was very welcoming .
