Guest access

You will have the whole spacious apartment with its own deck all to yourself to enjoy. We have a large backyard with a gate in the fence to access the stream and parkland (a real treat for families) There is free parking on the street outside the house.
There is no wheelchair access as there are about twelve narrow steps (with handrails) and a garden pathway to get down to the apartment.

Interaction with guests

I live upstairs and will be here to show you through when you arrive and answer any questions about your stay, after that you will have the place to yourself to enjoy. The backyard is a shared space to enjoy. We have a small dog upstairs but she doesn't venture downstairs without me. Just text me or ring my doorbell if you need anything.

Other things to note

The place is a large, bright apartment that is set up to feel like a home not a hotel room. The queen bed (and sofa bed if needed) will be made up with fresh linen, and towels are supplied. I do not change linen or wash towels during your stay but there is a washing machine in the kitchen if you need to do a wash. There is an outside clothesline and two small Folding lines for drying clothes.

This was our second stay at Jacqui's place. Jacqui was welcoming and provided us with everything we needed to make us feel comfortable. The view of the rock climbers out the window kept us entertained and our daughter's favourite thing to do was to go down to the rivulet - just through a door at the back fence and play. We took the rivulet track several times into the city and explored the other way one day on the cascade walking track. Thanks for having us again

A lovely home overlooking the rivulet leading to town. Within a stone's throw to the Female Factory where we enjoyed the dramatisation and tour of the compound. Followed by a easy stroll to Cascade Brewery for a delicious late lunch and a beer pouring contest:p Attempted a breakfast at Ginger Brown Cafe (5mins walk) the next day, but think would have better luck calling in advance for a table... Short drive up to Mount Nelson for a breathtaking view of the city and southern Tasmania. In the evening, even managed to walk to town to witness the Siren Song for Dark MOFO. A charming house that's both at the city fringe and yet strangely right in the center of it all :)

Jacqui is a lovely host, who is friendly and was there to welcome us on arrival. The home is very comfortable and warm with fresh towels and linen. It is in a peaceful setting, with a grest walking track located at the rear of the property.

What a great place to stay. The apartment has everything you need for a holiday, all the little extras were lovely. The place is in a great location, close to beautiful Mt Wellington, and the city, with the best walking track alongside the rivulet. The house itself is so warm, cosy and clean. We will be recommending it to all our friends and family, ten out of ten!

Great location if you want to be outside the city but not far. Everything we need was in Jacqui's place. We specifically chose this as there is a walking trail by the house which we all love. Highly recommended.

Jacqui's places is just perfect for your stay in Hobart! Located nice and close to the city (drive walk or bus) but quiet and secluded, with views over the rivulet, bushland and up to mt Wellington. The space is perfectly equipped with an awesome kitchen (with espresso machine and many different yummy nibbles). Comfy bed and lounge room too. Thanks Jacqui for the great stay!

We moved to Hobart from Sydney in 2001, after coming to Tasmania for a holiday and just loving it.
I enjoy welcoming guests to our neighbourhood and providing a homely place to relax.
