Beautifully clean and spacious. It's an off grid cabin with modern luxuries, you'll forget about the technology once you see the view. Lani, Noel and Max were lovely, friendly hosts and were so warm and welcoming. We'll definitely be coming back.

This is a lovely place - in an excellent location - the beach and the centre of Hobart are minutes away, and so is the airport, surprisingly, because you can't hear it. The views are wonderful, and the hosts friendly and welcoming - plus a...More

About the neighbourhood
The Coal River Valley, our neighborhood, is the premier wine, whiskey, and food destination. The quaint town of Richmond is only 10 minutes away. Within 15 minutes from the cottage, you'll find more than 10 vineyards, 3 whiskey distilleries, and more than 7 restaurants/cafes including the award winning Frogmore Creek Winery/Restaurant.
How to get there
It's a very easy 10 minute drive from Hobart Airport, and 15 minute drive from Hobart CBD. A car is necessary, although we've had guests without a car. There's plenty of secure parking space just in front of the cottage. There's a Tassie Link bus stop about 10 minute walk (downhill, or 15 minute walk back uphill). Metro bus stop is about 15 minute walk.
