...This self-contained three-bedroom house is delightfully renovated, with bright sunny aspects and cozy feels. Comprising three bedrooms, with two queen beds, and a single in the third (upstairs) bedroom. Full kitchen and laundry, all linen and towels are provided. Courtyard is framed by a studio at rear, providing a wonderful sun trap, and privacy that would be hard to match in any modern dwelling. All rooms are provided with their own electric panel heater.

For more info, we're on the web at fiftyfivedavey, look at the "longer" tab.

Guest access

Fully equipped kitchen, fully furnished house.
One bathroom with washing machine and dryer.

Interaction with guests

We will provide keysafe code, you can arrive at the time that suits you.
Our expectation is that arrival time will be 2pm or later, and departure time will be 10am or earlier. This is to enable our schedule to be ready for next guest's arrival time.

The neighbourhood

We are in the middle of a "movie set" suburb that has changed very little since the first European settlers arrived in Tasmania.
It was an era before cars, telecommunications, and information overload, and the location enables our guests to walk pretty much anywhere around Hobart in just a few minutes.
We're a 3 minute walk to the middle of Salamanca Place, via Kelly's Steps.

Getting around

Pretty much walk anywhere in Hobart within a few minutes, including wharf area, bus mall, bus pickup points, and tourist travel departure points.
Carparking is not ideal - there is no off-street carparking space, the street has 2-hour (unmetered) parking. For more parking suggestions, we will be happy to email you with some suggestions direct.

Other things to note

The single bedroom is upstairs, and the staircase is extremely steep, very unsuitable for elderly or young children who may be unstable on their feet. The rest of the house is quite accessible.
Having said that, we can provide a porta cot and high chair, for the child who is not yet climbing dangerous stairs!!!
(Please bring your own cot linen)

Such a great location, especially if you don't have long in Hobart. We loved being able to walk out the door and quickly arrive at places to eat and soak up the fantastic city. Super easy check in, and the house had everything we needed.

Whaler's Cottage is in a lovely quiet part of Hobart. So many gorgeous historical properties, cafes and antique shops. Only 5 mins to Salamanca. Well appointed rooms. The attic room is charming but watch those super narrow steps esp if you have wee children.
