Slow Beam is an inimitable house.

We want to offer visitors to Hobart a unique & luxurious accommodation experience, which connects elegant modern design with its rugged, bush environment.

Located in West Hobart, we are a short 8 minute drive to the Salamanca water front. Our 2 story house is nestled in a private bushy street, with amazing views of the Derwent River, South Hobart, Sandy Bay & beyond, from our floor to ceiling windows.

The home is spacious and private.

The space
Slow Beam is an architecturally designed house, created specifically for a unique Hobart getaway. You can expect to experience Australian design and artworks by the likes of Grant Featherston, Esther Stewart, Anna Varendorff, Ebony Truscott, Kirsten Perry and Fred Ganim.

Every window view has been considered by the designer, Hearth Studio. Not just the expansive river and city views, but also to provide glimpses throughout the house to the natural sandstone and bush surroundings.

We provide complimentary Taylor & Smith Cocktails, sparkling water, Market Lane Coffee and Le Labo toiletries to all of our guests.

We have a fully functioning kitchen, with an induction cooktop, oven and dishwasher.

In the kitchen, we provide the basics: Olive oil, salt and pepper, tea, coffee and sparkling water. We have basically all of the cooking utensils you would need to cook for yourself. There is also long life milk in the fridge, in case of emergencies!

We have a laundry equipped with a sink and washer/dryer, aswell as laundry detergent.

We have a fireplace (with ample fire wood provided) and ducted heating and cooling throughout the house.

The house was built from the ground up, in 2019.
