NOTE: Please read my description throughly and also tell me a bit about yourself and your intended stay when making your booking request - requests without a note will be ignored.
The Tin Lantern is a 3bdr two storey house overlooking Pirates Bay and beyond to Antarctica. Just an hour from Hobart & 45mins from the airport, my home sits back on a forested 2.5 acre property with expansive views of the ocean, The Hippolyte's and The Lanterns.
This is a place for dreamers, stargazers, hikers, divers and surfers. Sit next to fireplace or on the deck, read books & magazines from my extensive collection, explore the rugged Tasman Peninsula, or just reflect & reset over tea.
The Tin Lantern has various eco features, including roof-collected rainwater, 3.5kw of solar, a biocycle septic system, toilet paper from the Who Gives a Crap™ social enterprise, and Dr Bronners™ fair trade organic soaps in the kitchen & bathroom.
Nestled on a wooded incline overlooking Pirates Bay, The Tin Lantern features a cosy wood heater & split firewood (during winter), outdoor BBQ & cooking area with night lighting, carport, a modern interior with polished floor boards and carpeted bedrooms.
There are three bedrooms - two downstairs, one with two single beds and one with a double bed, along with a master upstairs bedroom with a queen bed featuring a private balcony.
The first floor has a balcony, large open-plan living room / dining area, with a kitchen and twin breakfast bench chairs. All amenities are included for cooking (pots, pans, etc).
There is fast Internet access provided over WIFI (NBN). There is no TV - there is however a large selection of good books & thought provoking magazines around the house, plus beautiful views and great places to go on long walks.
I urge guests not to wear shoes inside (Japanese style) - slippers are provided.
NOTE: Sometimes (work dependent) I may be staying on the property in a completely self-contained space, which is located 70m from the main house - a distance further away than normal neighbours. Get in touch if you have any queries on this!
