The space

My modern home is in Lower Sandy Bay and every room enjoys wonderful sunshine and spectacular views of the Alexandra Battery and the Derwent River.

Good public transport is available across the street - an easy bus ride into the city of Hobart via the University or south to Kingston.

I especially welcome young adult travellers and I have priced my room accordingly - all three of my children have traveled abroad and I know how much they appreciated being hosted in private homes.

I offer Flexible check in and check out because I really value that when I travel, but I do ask that my guests be specific about their arrival time so that I can arrange my day accordingly and be at home to meet them.

Your room is upstairs, contains two single beds with good inner spring mattresses, and has the exclusive use of a bathroom, with the shower over the bath, and a separate toilet both just across the passageway.

Downstairs is the living area with the kitchen and dining-room where breakfast will be available. Let me know if you have any special breakfast requirements and I will be happy to oblige. Breakfast is a "help yourself' affair. I provide coffee,a range of teas, breakfast cereals, home-made yoghurt, fruit, bread and spreads for you to select from and prepare for yourself.

I have a lovely sunny terrace and a barbecue if dining alfresco appeals and also a swimming pool (that is heated in the summer) if you wish to cool off.
There is a wireless network throughout my home which you are welcome to log in to and I have a desktop iMac which you may use to check email etc.
On the lowest level there is a fantastic home-cinema for watching television and movies.

Lower Sandy Bay with its shops, cafes, restaurants and lovely beach is less than 10 minutes walk away.

There is excellent off street parking right adjacent to my home.

I've travelled widely myself and really enjoy meeting new people.

I would love to be your host!
You will LOVE my home - it has that five star resort feel about it that we all hope for when we travel :)

Sorrel was a impeccable host. It was our first airbnb experience and she made us feel at home even before we got there with good communication and genuine concerns for our experience in Hobart. Her place is great, in a perfect location and topped with good conversation... we had …

A trip to Hobart would not be complete without a stop or in my case a few nights at Sorrel's gorgeous house. Sorrel makes me feel at home each time I stay and I immensely enjoy her company. Thanks again for yet another memorable stay. Xx
