The space

This gorgeous 1905 large renovated character Federation cottage is perfectly situated in the very popular inner city suburb of West Hobart. This wonderfully located, north-east facing, sun filled, large Federation weatherboard home is well situated on a flat block.

Located 1.5km (25 min walk or 5 min drive) from the city centre of Hobart, the property is located in one of the best streets in Hobart, boasting extra wide footpaths and road, lined with federation cottages and bathed in all day sun.

The cottage has been tastefully renovated with a fresh, light, modern feel and has everything you could need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Beautiful crisp white and grey linen, clean white interior, Federation features including a stunning front veranda with original wrought iron lacework (the perfect spot to enjoy your morning cuppa), fireplaces and high ceilings.

Our fully renovated cottage features off street parking for two cars, flat access, large sunny backyard, gorgeous sunny veranda perfect for watching the world go by, large brand new bathroom, two toilets, separate laundry with washing machine, four double bedrooms (three downstairs and one upstairs) all with wardrobes, open plan kitchen/dining/lounge with a 6-seater dining table, Bosch dishwasher, wood heater, Nespresso coffee machine and complementary tea, coffee and milk.

Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and the fourth has a double bed. One of the downstairs bedrooms has a clear glass skylight (no blind), which provides guests with a unique stargazing experience. We recommend the early risers reserve this bedroom. The attic bedroom upstairs has lovely views, which can be enjoyed from the large window.

The luxurious bathroom is the perfect place to take a bath and relax after a day of shopping or walking. The spacious, brand new bathroom has a shower over bath (full size bath). We supply guests with Basic Earth Botanicals eucalyptus and lemon myrtle body bars and shampoo and conditioner.

The large backyard has great all day sun, and provides you with an excellent area to entertain around the outdoor setting and BBQ. It's the ideal place to eat lunch in the sun or make the most of the long summer evenings by feasting on your award winning meat and sausages from West Hobart Gourmet Meats and fresh artisan bread, Tasmanian cheeses, fresh fruit and veg from Hill Street Grocer.

The very popular John Doggett Park has recently been completely refurbished which is located directly across the road. The park has a skate bowl, huge fully fenced playground and excellent BBQ facilities and public toilets, perfect for families with children of all ages.

We are family friendly and welcome young children and infants. Available upon request are a high chair, portacot, baby bath and bassinet. If you require these items, please request these items with your booking request.

We also own White Cottage North Hobart which is located 1km from White Cottage West Hobart (15 min walk). We welcome dual bookings for larger groups, subject to availability.

A lovely, warm stay, with plenty of space, lots of light, and with easy off street (or on street) parking. The house was good value, and too big for our small group! Thank you for the extra treats Emma, we really appreciated them, the lovely hot showers, and the warm fluffy towels, after emerging from the Tassie wilderness!

I fell in love with the house the minute I walked in.... The house is large, homely and comfortable, Good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast with the local gourmet grocer and butcher being the best find just around the corner!. No need to go far from the house to local bars with live music, and a large variety of restaurants and cafes about 10-15 minute walk away. ALSO only $10 Uber or taxi away from the CBD. It's a peaceful quiet street with ample parking. I've travelled a fair amount in my job and this experience is by far the best I've had with Airbnb. My only advice is read the guide that is provided by Emma very detailed and accurate with her recommendations. Thank you Emma for your unique, personable and welcoming hospitality, we will be back.

We recently spent a weekend at White Cottage on a family holiday to Tasmania. We loved everything about the house. Beautifully appointed and every detail taken care of and so comfortable. The welcome pack was a great addition and very much appreciated. The location is brilliant for exploring Hobart with everything you could want within a 5-10 min drive and all the restaurants of North Hobart so close by - we particularly loved Born in Brunswick for breakfast. Thanks Emma, we will definitely stay again on our next trip to Hobart.

Great place to stay in Hobart, so close to all of the restaurants in North Hobart. Was a bright and clean home that had been very thought out in regards to styling! Loved it!

White cottage is a cute little home. Our communication with our host Emma was lovely. The decor is amazing and simple. We loved our stay at the cottage, it was very clean, had everything you need, warm and cosy. Great location, walking distance to the shops for dinner.
