About the property

Apartment on the EDGE is a modern self-contained, spacious apartment for two, at the rear of a family home, located in the quiet suburb of Lenah Valley.

The apartment is newly refurbished, and has been thoughtfully appointed to ensure the comfort and convenience of our guests.

The open plan living area has access to the verandah and shared courtyard, where you can sit and enjoy an early morning cuppa, or perhaps a glass of something special in the evening.

For those quieter evenings relax and enjoy the apartment which is equipped with a large TV, Wi-Fi, Netflix, and Spotify or perhaps lose yourself in the selection of books on Tasmanian history, culture, and the culinary opportunities that our state is so well known for.

Your complimentary breakfast pantry will be stocked with a selection of cereals, muesli, bread and spreads, which includes home made raspberry jam. Tea, coffee and fresh milk is also provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-sized oven and cooktop, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher.

The queen size bed is fitted with luxurious linen, and for those cooler Tassie nights an electric blanket. There is ample wardrobe space and in the ensuite bathroom you will find deluxe towels, a hair dryer and a selection of quality bathroom products.

Portable cot and baby chair are also available on request.

Guests may check themselves in to the apartment independently using the secure pass code door, for easy after hours’ arrivals. Your code will be provided after your booking is accepted.

The apartment adjoins the main house; however, it is entirely separate, with its own, private entrance. Our aim is to provide a hospitable space, allowing our guests complete independence and privacy.

We are available to assist guests during the day by mobile or email or if you wish, in person in the evening.

Lenah Valley is a quiet suburb four kilometres from the CBD with many amenities within walking distance-:

• Salamanca Fresh grocery store and deli.

• Lenah Valley Foodstore

• Sublime Italian restaurant

• Milano’s takeaway pizza

• Whisk and Co. (breakfast and lunch)

• Plus - chemists and doctor’s surgery, hairdressers, service station, newsagent, fashion boutique and florist.

In the adjoining suburb of New Town, a few minutes’ drive from the apartment, there are cafes’ bakeries, grocery stores, K Mart and Woolworths and Coles supermarkets.

Elizabeth Street, North Hobart, a five-minute drive from the apartment, is famous for its strip of eateries, hotels and specialty shops. Check out a film at the historic State Cinema (possibly on the rooftop) with a glass of Tasmanian wine.

From the airport, you can catch a taxi or the Airporter Shuttle Bus is $18 per person one-way to the city. If you have a car it’s about a 30-minute drive. Guests have access to parking in the driveway or there is plenty of off-street parking. Public transport, which will take you to the city (via North Hobart) is only two minutes away on Augusta Road. Buses run very frequently. A taxi to the Waterfront will cost less than $20.

It is 10 kilometers to MONA which can take 20 – 30 minutes depending on traffic conditions.

There is a young Bernese Mountain Dog called Boris in the back garden, please let me know if this is a problem.

Homely Hobart Experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exceptionally well presented, a very comfortable and welcoming space which we looked forward to returning to after a day of exploring Hobart and the surrounding areas. Close to any amenities and a very short drive into town for activities of restaurants. The hosts were lovely and approachable and ensured our stay was enjoyable. All the extra trimmings provided - tea, coffee, a basic pantry, as well as linen towels and a stocked bathroom. Thank you!

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our little family loved staying at Edge. The apartment was very cosy, and the owners have put so much love into the property, which really helps to make you feel at home. Beautiful gardens and surrounds, comfy bed and living area, luxurious bathroom and a fridge and cupboard full of Tasmanian gourmet food. We would definitely go back to stay at Edge, if we go to Hobart again!
