Guaranteed 24-hour immediate access. For longer stays, we change the towels twice weekly and the sheets every week. Sheets are sun-dried whenever possible for a luxurious smell and feel. There is a 15% discount for stays of a week or more and 30% for a month or more. Send us an enquiry to get a further 15% off for last minute bookings that fall within the next 14 days. Quality electric blankets and 5 star hotel quality mattresses and linen, along with thermostatically controlled and programmed heating, will ensure you sleep beautifully and wake to a warm, luxurious and immaculately clean 2 bedroom apartment, whatever the weather. The knockout bathroom features a theatrical quality make-up mirror, sensor-activated exhaust, automatic night light, 'instant-on' unlimited hot water with thermostat, and walk-in shower. Hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and hand wash are all supplied. 100 MB per second fibre-optic internet connection with excellent free Wi-Fi and unlimited downloads, will ensure you stay connected and entertained with Netflix streaming in full HD to our top-of-the-range 40 inch Samsung LED TV. A dedicated undercover garage for a single car is included. The designer kitchen includes a SMEG oven, ceramic stove top, microwave and range-hood and is fully equipped with all utensils, pots, pans, glasses , crockery, cutlery, rice cooker, kettle, toaster, blender, as well as oil, salt, pepper, coffee (ground and instant), plunger, tea, milk, baking paper, wipes, paper towels and cling wrap. There will be a bottle of wine and a treat to welcome you. The apartment is perfect for a couple looking for a romantic holiday away, with coloured mood lighting in the lounge and main bedroom, 1000 and 1500 thread-count sheets, and 'Microcloud' Doona and pillows (see the 'ProductReview' site for how good these are). The Den can also accommodate three others in the double-plus-one bunk bed in the second bedroom, so you can bring the kids or share with another couple. A portable cot is available for very young children. Business persons looking to reward themselves will also be making a savvy choice, with a desk for your laptop, or optionally, we can connect your laptop directly to the TV with a wireless keyboard and mouse you can operate from the Italian leather lounge. “The Den' features the luxurious look of great rugs, quality furniture, figured and coloured glass highlights, Huon Pine and Tasmanian Oak features. In a small complex of nine units, the apartment is on the first floor (that is, the second floor, if you are American) at the back of the complex, so is easy to access but quite secluded in outlook and feel. “Leafy' is definitely the word for it. Guest access and interaction: Guests have access to the whole apartment and both balconies, and have full and sole use of the undercover garage. There is 24-hour immediate access to The Den at all times. I live about ten minutes away from the apartment so will generally be available for help and/or advice (and happy to give it). If you like, I can share my love of the area and provide some useful tips about what you might like to do and see, restaurants, local services, wineries, and some of the great walks and activities nearby. For instance, did you know you can hire bicycles for very reasonable cost near Salamanca, and you can ride them directly out to MONA? 90% of the way is via a dedicated bike track that takes you through the quaint “village” of converted boat sheds at Cornelian Bay. Languages: My wife is Malaysian Chinese and speaks Hokkien and a little Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysian. I have a smattering of French, and Android translation apps on my phone and tablet :-) Other things to note: A portable cot can be provided for babies or toddlers. If a two-person booking wishes to use an extra bed, they will be charged $30, to cover the costs of laundry and labour. The apartment is on the first floor, with access from both front and back entrances of the building requiring the use of at least one flight of stairs. MONA is closed on Tuesdays. For safety reasons the top bunk bed is only to be used by a person under 80 kgs. weight. Very young or disabled children should also not use the top bunk. Guests will need to supply ID for insurance purposes at the handover of keys - a driver's license is ideal; passport or combination of recent utility bill and credit card. Getting around: Bus stops right in front of the building and over the road. Close to all public transport (multiple Metro bus services). Taxi ranks nearby Airport bus goes nearby. Undercover car parking onsite for 1 small to medium car Lots of attractions within short walking distance More

Beng and I live about ten minutes away from the apartment so will generally be available for help and/or advice (and happy to give it). If you like, I can share my love of the area and provide some useful tips about what you might like to do and see, restaurants, local services, wineries, and some of the great walks and activities nearby. We will meet and greet you at The Den, settle you in and give you some tips plus orient you so your visit can get off to a flying start.

About the neighbourhood
The back of the apartment is on the Battery Point boundary, abutting Albuera Street Primary school, so expect a bit of noise from the kids at play times on weekdays during school terms (all that laughing and running around!), but very reduced noise on weekends, nights and holidays compared to other apartments surrounded on all sides by residents, roads and/or and garages. Byron St is the continuation of Molle St that goes through the top of the CBD, and the apartment is 200 metres from Sandy Bay Road. It is central to all that Sandy Bay, Battery Point, Hobart City and much of what South and West Hobart have to offer: • Sandy Bay restaurants, shopping precinct and supermarkets are a short 5 minutes’ walk away. Another 5 minutes takes you to Wrest Point Casino with multiple bars an...
Getting around
There is parking for a car and a bus stop directly outside the building. Many, many attractions are in easy walking distance. Uber is also in Hobart. There is no need for a car at all, especially for short visits, but always a nice-to-have for longer trips. The main thoroughfares through town are at the top and bottom of the street, so easy to find your way out and about, if you are driving. For example there are only 2 turns to take you the top of the often snow-capped Mount Wellington ('Kunanyi') for spectacular and panoramic views over the south of Tasmania, including Bruny Island.
