This space is a newly renovated ground floor flat underneath our Federation house (with its own private entrance) just a short walk to great restaurants, bars, cafes, markets, parks and an independent cinema.

The space
The apartment has whitewashed sandstone and timber feature walls, plush new carpet and baltic floorboards, up-cycled furnishings and artwork by contemporary Tasmanian artists (including Matt.)

The lounge has two comfy couches (one folds out to a double sofa bed with an inner-spring mattress), a Sony Bravia telly, wifi, books and games and a desk. A heat pump keeps it toasty and there's also a cute little wood heater for extra ambience!

We’ve equipped the kitchen with a microwave, toaster, kettle, convection oven, gas cooktop, a small fridge and basic supplies. The local cafes do awesome breakfasts but we do provide you with some things to get you started, such as real coffee, a selection of teas, milk, a small loaf of bread, muesli, yoghurt and jams.

The bathroom is a cosy space with a walk-in shower, loo, lovely deep bath and two handbasins. We supply towels, bathroom toiletries and a hairdryer. Please note that the ceiling is quite low so if you’re say 6’2’’ you might find it a bit tricky!

Sleeping facilities are flexible, with a double bed in the separate bedroom, the double sofa bed in the lounge room and a set of single bunks in the hallway/alcove just outside the main bedroom. Please note there is no door to this area and because the ceiling is quite low, the bunks are best suited to children rather than older teenagers/adults. In the bedroom you'll find a large wardrobe, a chest of drawers and an iron and ironing board.

Guests have access to a small shared garden space that includes a bench and table/chairs and a hammock in summer. There is detergent and a clothes airer if you want to do some hand washing. (There is a laundromat a short walk away and if your stay is a week or more you can use our washing machine.

Guest access
You have your own private entrance to the flat via the path at the side of the main house on Argyle Street. There are usually ample (free) car spots available on the street. You're welcome to share our small garden and help yourself to the herbs and salad mix.

It's always worth asking if you can check in earlier or later than the specified times as we like to be as flexible as possible.

Other things to note
We live directly above the flat. We do try and 'tip toe' while we have guests but you will probably hear our footsteps/washing machine/dishwaster during your stay.

If you are an artist or art-lover you might be interested in visiting Matt's studio, on an 8-acre block at Glaziers Bay in the Huon Valley. We also have some very basic accommodation available there in an old apple pickers' hut if you're looking for a different experience.

I'm a practicing artist who makes sculpture and 2-d work using recycled glass, corten steel and aluminium. Our hosting style is casual and friendly. We've had great fun getting our space ready for visitors and we look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of North Hobart.
