A self-contained apartment with 1-bedroom, modern kitchen and luxury bathroom only 5 minutes from Hobart. Meticulous attention has been given to the refurbishment to reflect its 1950’s heritage to create a stylish space and ensure absolute comfort.

The space

The self contained apartment is built within an architect designed 1950s house which featured on the cover of Home Beautiful magazine in 1951. Many of the original features of the house have been retained within the apartment.

The intimate bedroom looks onto an attractive garden and the original classic 50s dressing table and wardrobe have cute drawers for your socks and things.

The luxury bathroom has a mosaic tiled floor, a shower, a lovely old pedastal basin, a generous bath for serious wallowing, large fluffy towels and sweet smelling toiletries.

Cooks and food lovers will be at home in the functional kitchen. It is perfectly equipped so that when you return with an armful of tasty Tasmanian treats, cooking a delicious meal is as easy as pie.

A free generous breakfast basket is provided for the first morning. This will consist of free range eggs, sour dough bread, juice, seasonal produce and fresh milk.

There is a retro dining table and chairs and the sitting room is warmed by a glowing gas log fire, perfect for reading, watching a new flatscreen television or enjoying your favourite music on the ipod Bose docking station.

The furnishings and original artwork compliment the relaxing interior.

Outdoor chairs provide space for you to enjoy the the sweet songs of the birds while you sip a coffee in the morning or a glass of Tasmanian wine at the close of the day.

Private off street parking is available at no additional fee.

Guest access

The apartment access is via a security coded door lock which is changed for every guest. Prior to arrival a personalised code will be send by SMS to the guest which will allow access for the duration of their stay.

Other things to note

There will be a small supply of fine Tasmanian wines and beers in the fridge to purchase on an honour system.

Great, nice and comfortable place. Everything was clean and tidy. John and Marilyn were great hosts. They have provided lots of useful tips and information, like where to eat, what to do in Hobart. Would strongly recommend Mellowtrees to my friends visiting Hobart!

This place was great. Really comfortable and cosy. The deco styling was a treat, with lots of amenities in walking distance. Hosts are welcoming and provide lots of information on places to eat/things to do etc. I would definitely recommend staying at Mellowtrees.

John and his wife were lovely, friendly, caring, down to earth and cultured. They were easy to contact, fitted us in last minute and made us feel extremely welcome as well as providing us with some wonderful places to visit whilst in Tasmania. The images dont do the actual home justice. It was wonderfully warm, immaculate, clean, extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and the various bathroom lotions and potions were of quality and lovely to use. The house is located in a leafy area with gorgeous homes and views. We had a car and found central Hobart and the surrounds easily accessible and fast to get to. All the basics for clothes washing/drying, cooking, cleaning and enjoyment were provided and we really appreciated the stocked fridge which contained orange juice, bread, yogurts, milk, biscuits etc. Also available was a lovely wine and beer selection and extra coffee pods all paid for by the honesty system, very handy! We enjoyed ourselves so much we had to stay another night! I will be strongly recommending it to my friends and family when they visit Tassy.

Delightful stay at this accommodation. Well appointment with all mod cons, a comfy bed and little extra's that make it feel special. Located on a quite street, 5 mins walk to sandy beach and a short drive to the centre of Hobart. The hosts communicated extremely well with us and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this for anyone considering a stay for 2 in Hobart.

We were made to feel very welcome by both John and Marilyn, they were wonderful hosts (and super accommodating, dropping our luggage off as we had a late flight)! The apartment is sensational... A well appointed, impeccably decorated, comfortable space tucked away in a picturesque location. If the city wasn't so fabulous, we would have been tempted to stay indoors for the week! Be sure to hit up the dining spots on their in-house list, all were bang on! I cannot recommend a stay at Mellowtrees highly enough. All in all a great experience.

I live in the beautiful leafy suburb of Sandy Bay in Tasmania with my wife Marilyn. We have lived in Melbourne, London, Sydney and now Hobart. We have travelled extensively throughout Europe, America and Asia and enjoy experiencing new cultures. We are lovers of fine food (Tasmania is a great place for fabulous produce, wine and restaurants), the visual and performing arts, music and the finer things in life. We both work, myself with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Marilyn with the University of Tasmania.
