We live in the adjoining house and are happy to share our in depth knowledge of Hobart's cultural attractions, restaurants and wineries. We enjoy attending the MONA, art galleries, museums, theatre performances at the historic Theatre Royal and Tasmanian Symphony concerts.Classical concerts in churches and rock/jazz groups perform in many pubs around Hobart. Hobart has both bush and spectacular coastal walks in every direction. More

Interaction with guests
How much contact with us is entirely up to you but we are accessible at any time if you wish. You will be occupying the apartment which is self contained and separate. However we don't feel our guests need to keep to themselves if they are wishing a chat. In fact we are happy to share a glass of wine or cup of tea on our terrace. Share your plans and we might be able to suggest additional ideas to make your holiday even more interesting.

Located in Sandy Bay, Hobart, beach more or less on the doorstep but suggest some transport unless you are particularly “fit”. The town centre is approx 5km away but the buses run about every 10 mins. The apartment was very cosy, all amenities were taken...More

I agree the walk up from the beach is a bit steep but still worth it for the views across the Derwent River. We appreciate you taking the time to write. Janina and Gary

Indeed we constantly update the visitor information and find it is helpful for guests to read at leisure. The library of books and videos add to the Tasmanian cultural experience. And being your hosts was special too.

About the neighbourhood
Local attractions within walking distance of Sonningview are Long Beach, Nutgrove park, and historic Alexandra Battery. Spectacular views of Mt Nelson and Mt Wellington pinnacles and both can be reached by car less than 10km away. We are a convenient base for day trips outside Hobart. Half day trips to wineries. Excellent restaurants, cafes and food outlets within a kilometre or two from the apartment.
Getting around
Buses travel past our property which take you to all parts of Hobart and south but of course if time is short your own car is the best option. Uber has come to Hobart. A ferry from Hunter St wharf takes you to MONA if you wish. For energetic travellers buses and walking are the main forms of transport if you choose not to bring a car. We can supply all the bus schedules. Bicycles are for hire downtown. Kayaks on Long Beach can be hired to explore the Derwent River.
