A short walk to water, cafes and Salamanca Place, this Battery Point loft is light, white and spacious. Perfect for people wanting a guaranteed quiet sleep after museum hopping, gallery going and finding the best food in Australia. There is a reserved park for those with a car. The Loft also features some wonderful art from the Peter Fay collection.

The space
The Space
The Loft sleeps two in a very comfortable split king bed that comes with electric blankets for the cold months. This lovely renovated ex-plumber's workshop is one large open space completely self-contained with it's own entrance and delightful water and garden views.

There are three levels. Enter into the spacious main living area, and kitchen looking out over the Derwent River and Sandy Bay. The bathroom, including a washing machine is also on this level. A small mezzanine space with a writing desk for creative souls, or those wanting to tackle our impossible jigsaw puzzle is up a small flight of stairs. Downstairs is a large, quiet bedroom. There is wi-fi throughout and a basic TV with HDM cord to connect to your laptop and an ipod/iphone player/docking station to listen to your own music.

The loft is conveniently located within easy walking distance north, south, east or west of fabulous eating out options. For the night you are not exploring the best of Hobart’s cuisine, the kitchen is pure Zen. One induction hot plate, a microwave, a coffee pod machine, a fridge, dishwasher and wide double toaster. There are plenty of utensils, cups, mugs, glasses, plates, bowls, saucepans and fry-pan to cook the great local produce. Our go-to cookbook is 'One Pot Wonders' left for your convenience.

The Loft is heated by an efficient heat pump in the living/kitchen space, a panel heater in the bedroom and a bar heater in the bathroom. All linen and towels are provided plus body wash, shampoo/conditioner and a hair dryer. We don't use fabric softeners, nor do we iron bed linen or towels. You will sleep and wash better for knowing that in your green hearts.

The Art
Many of the artists you will find on the walls of the The Loft were featured in Peter Fay's exhibition 'Home Sweet Home' and are available for sale. Peter also offers art tours which can be designed to suit your needs. Examples include 'The Contemporary' at MONA and 'The Colonial' at the Tasmanian Museum and Art gallery (TMAG). Let us know if you are interested in these tours when booking.

The Loft is great for a few days away or a longer term stay while you explore all Tasmania has to offer. The place is all yours but if you have any questions, want hints on what to do and where to go, just come up your drive and knock on our front door next door. (And we want to support the arts so if you are a writer of any kind looking for a quiet place to work from two weeks up to a month, do contact us about our special rates for longer stays). The overall feel is friendly and funky in a space you can make your home for as long as you need.
