Welcome to Hobart! I fell in love with Hobart first and then fell in love with hosting and have since hosted hundreds of guests over 5 years. I've had a recent year's hiatus, renovating my home and garden. It has dimpled coloured glass & lovely high ceilings, with the front guest bedroom well lit, facing north.

My family are artists, so we have a tidy, colourfully eclectic retro decor. We eat outside or on floor cushions in the lounge. The neighbourhood is quiet & central, walk to anywhere.
