This is classic South Hobart - 'Tyenna' an old Cascade family brewer cottage, shabby chic - furnishing, accessories, mirrors, vintage posters & cutting edge 21C Australian art. If you're an early riser - wake up to the distant sound of kookaburras laughing and catch a glimpse! Keep your eyes open for wildlife - wallabies, possums, & echidnas. Rainforest is not far away, the Cascades Walking Track is one of the closest, bushwalk down the rivulet to the city centre it starts across the road.

Plenty of street parking available - Front - Off street back rear.

In walking distance world heritage sites, rain forest walks and gardens.

We have a heat pump in the lounge room. If you keep all the doors to the rooms closed - this does a good job to heat up the lounge, the kitchen and hallways. We have 2 bar heaters for the bedrooms/bathrooom to use as you wish and they do a great job.

Note: As we are Tasmanian born and bred were used to wearing a woolen jumper, a keeping a knitted blanket on hand so we often do not resort to using all these heaters at once, but do feel free to do so!

Pleasant garden to dine in outside when weather permits. A private home to view wonderful avid bird life that takes pleasure from our native Tasmanian garden and nature strip. No need to go to farmers market all the greens are there waiting for you. Scenic views of Kunanyi (Mt Wellington), bright and sunny side of South Hobart (SoHo).

Dining is usually in the kitchen - our cozy hang out, cook chill out take in the south from the Mountain down the valley to the CBD - on a special occasion can even watch the fireworks from a far and feel apart of the action in a tranquil spot with out the hustle of crowds.

Host's mother is a 5th generation Tasmanian and will meet guest, to hand over keys, show them amenities and the general lay of the land.

South Hobart - SoHo - to the locals, is a quiet and safe suburb with World Heritage-listed sites and buildings, including Australia's oldest brewery, great parks, extremely hip cafes (without pretension -Yes in Tasmania still possible!) and an array of shops from vintage, cutting edge design to supermarkets. One of Hobart's older suburbs it is at the foot of Kunanyi (Mount Wellington) the Cascades Rivulet flows through here toward the city.

Getting to the city is easy with a walk down the historic Rivulet Track (20min) or by bus in which the stop is at the end of the street - (5 min), a convenient Regular Bus stop.

The location of the house is excellent. We had five star views of snow capped mountains from the sunny kitchen table and enjoyed being able to see so much from the high vantage point. A short drive to start nature walks, and the Cascade brewery was walking distance. Thanks for a wonderful stay in Hobart it was very special!

Response from Marcia Nancy:
There is also a nature walk literally at the bottom of the street - Cascade Gardens and the rivulet walk either or up the hill or wind down the valley.

A lovely quiet home, with elevated views & a wonderful view of the Mountain & across the valley to bushland. The sun pours in during the afternoon. The entertainment was excellent, with access to DVD/Blue-ray, TV, radio and music. This feels like a happy, cosy home.
