Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Hobart, Greater Hobart, Tasmania
Waterfront retreat exclusively for couples in an outer suburb of Hobart. With views of this beautiful capital city and beyond to Mt Wellington, The Boat Shed offers modern, self contained accommodation for guests who wish to see the sights of southern Tasmania - or - just stay at home. Enjoy the peace with only the water lapping and hardly a sole to be seen. Walk along the beach, explore the natural reserve just 200m from this cottage. Of course, a 'starter pack' of breakfast provisions is also included with fruit juice, bread for toast, cereals, eggs and bacon, coffee and tea. Spoil yourselves!
