Description from owner

Description

Lindisfarne village directly opposite the city of Hobart across the water.

8 mins to city,20 to MONA. Pets v.welcome.

A modern,light,contemporary,self contained one bedroom apartment (sleeps 4) backing onto one of Hobart's easiest bushwalk-birds & wildlife.Hilltop position opposite Hobart city offers uniquely stunning views of Queen's Domain, Koomela Bay and Mount Wellington.

The Queens Domain View Apartment is spotlessly clean,private,in a super quiet area, self contained with it's own parking, directly across the water from....the Queen's Domain! Has a separate bedroom with queen bed, and a solid comfortable sofa bed to sleep two extra guests in the lounge room.

Brand new and funkily furnished to the highest standard and comfort, with some of my quirky collectibles/retro pieces ( love that FAB sofa bed!!) that I have amassed over 30 years, including a stunning portrait of Elizabeth I ...as played by Tilda Swinton, naturally!

The rate includes breakfast pack: Organic muesli/cereal, milk for arrival day, enough for 2 days for 2, one day for 4.

Tea,coffee beans and sugar are provided along with basics such as olive oil, pepper mill, Leatherwood honey, spices, vinegar, mustard.

WIFI access included plus Netflix and Stan.

SLEEP: a luxurious timber queen bed with a Sealy posturepedic, hotel standard, firm mattress with quality bedlinen and an electric blanket for those chilly nights.

Natural duck down doona (duvet) and 100% cotton quality bedlinen used with only natural soap- not nasty itchy synthetic detergent- but please note life is too short to iron sheets, they are line dried in the sunshine ( weather permitting) and supplied crisp and fresh au naturelle from the washing line.

Goosedown,synthetic or orthopaedic memory foam pillow available to suit your preference, and additional pure wool blankets.

RELAX :Flatscreen TV with Netflix and Stan.

COOK: Fully fitted kitchen with cooktop, oven, microwave, coffee percolator and teapot, fully equipped to cook for yourself if you wish.

CLEANSE : equipped with a fabulous rainfall shower head in a walk in shower, premium eco friendly handmade soaps from Tasmania's iconic honey skincare brand Beauty and the Bees for a luxurious shower and of course a hairdryer. Plush towels, naturally.

WASH: washing machine and dryer, iron.

HOBART"S BEST KEPT SECRET: Lindisfarne... is Hobart's best kept waterside secret, a very quiet "blue chip" suburb with fabulous bush walks so close ( 8 mins) to the city!

It has a real community feel, and a little village centre with all that you need close at hand....Baker's Delight Bakery, Woolworth's supermarket, bottle shop, Treats on Lincoln Patisserie (with gourmet pies and cakes) and the CWA ( fabulous home grown eggs fruit jams and cakes) are 2 minutes away in Lindisfarne Village, and the highly regarded Beltana Hotel 3 minutes away for a delicious meal. Heat Pizza is actually decent pizza in the Village to take away.

We are only 200 yards from the water's edge you can watch the new fab MONA ferry powering up river to the MONA, and all the other fascinating river traffic.

CONVENIENT: Parking is free onsite and there is room for 2 cars.

Bushwalk (in stilettos if you wish!) on a flat easy 2.7km loop gravelled track with incredible views just outside the back door- a relaxing pre-breakfast stroll or invigorating run can start or ends the day. The Council has even recently put in a track, handrail and new steps for you!

Only 8 mins to the city by car ( you definitely need one) to Hobart's galleries, CBD, Salamanca historic precinct, the working dock area (with some great takeaway fish and chips) North Hobart's restaurants, the State art house cinema ( fabulous bookshop) pubs and bars.

MONA is an easy 20 mins away up the highway, with the world class Agrarian Kitchen cooking school only 25 mins further on.

A garden patio area at the front of the apartment, with stunning panoramic views in which to relax in and watch the sunset with a glass of wine and and an al fresco meal- with aromatic fresh culinary herbs if you wish to buy some of our fresh Tasmanian produce and cook up a storm.

Rest, revive, relax and enjoy Tasmania.

Getting around

You ABSOLUTELY NEED a car to get around successfully in Hobart-public transport is- like most rural areas of Australia- patchy and almost non existent outside peak hours. There is public transport (bus) to take you to the city at the bottom of the drive- 10 mins to Salamanca place, but realistically it is sporadic- you need a car to make the best of the city. Taxis are available easily- cab to the city from here is about $ 20 one way ( yes cabs are expensive here) We are 10 minutes from the airport by car on the way into the city of Hobart proper- detailed instructions are available to you once you book, but it is very easy indeed to find.
