"The Cave" is a stylish and unique space, newly transformed into a self-contained apartment under my centrally located 1885 West Hobart home. It is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the city centre and a short walk to the Elizabeth Street North Hobart cafe strip.

With the stairs to the entry and the bed in a raised platform "nook", "The Cave" may not be for everyone, but if you're looking for well located lodgings that ooze atmosphere I think you'll love it!

The space
The Cave is well appointed, private, cosy and comfortable, with access to the garden. I have put thought and effort into it having everything you might need, for a long or short stay. For e.g. the kitchen has everything you should need for cooking, including a stick blender, there is a bluetooth speaker for music, and there is Chromecast available on the TV.

Please note that there are stairs to negotiate and also that the bed is on a raised platform. Also, there may be guests (and me!) in the house above you, though I have worked hard in the renovation to minimize sound transfer between the house and "the cave".

While I am open to pets staying, please check with me first. Pets must be kept under control at all times, must not be allowed on the couch or bed, and any mess in the garden must be cleaned up.

Note that I also rent my guest room in the main house on occasion, so if there are more than two of you traveling and you are looking to stay together let me know and I can advise if the guest room is available and what the cost would be.

Guest access
I live upstairs, and so the laundry outside "The Cave" is shared. For guest who stay 4 nights or more laundry facilities are free. For less than 4 nights I charge a cost if $3 per load of washing and $2 per load for the dryer. You are also welcome to hang clothes on the washing line to dry.

Other things to note
It is a vegetarian household, so if you're a not already vegetarian/vegan I'd appreciate if you could engage your inner vego while at home please :-)

I live an eco-friendly lifestyle and would really appreciate your help with this. I try and minimise plastic use, I compost fruit and vegetable scraps (the compost bin is under the kitchen sink), recycle, and turn off lights and heating when they're not needed.

I supply tea (herbal and black), coffee, sugar, non-dairy milks, and spreads (margarine, jams etc) & muesli, but you will need to supply other breakfast stuffs yourself. I also supply oil, vinegar, salt and pepper for cooking, and I am very happy to give you herbs and spices from my supply - just ask :-)

West Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

This part of West Hobart is heritage listed and one of the oldest parts of Hobart. It is very central, being on the edge of the CBD. There are many cafes, bars and restaurants nearby, with the cafe/restaurant strip in Elizabeth Street North Hobart a short walk away, and Salamanca a 20 minute walk. The renowned Hill Street Grocer is a 5 - 7 minute walk away if you want to stock up on quality food stuffs (they also sell prepared heat-and-eat meals), and Smolt Kitchen, Pigeon hole Bakery/Cafe & Room for a Pony are all great breakfast places and just a short stroll away.
