Hobart Hideaway Pods offer multi-award winning, boutique eco-friendly tourist accommodation set amongst the rural part of Mt Wellington's foothills conveniently located just 20 minutes from Hobart. Two architecturally designed pods boast stand out environmentally conscious with the aim of minimising environmental footprint. Guests are surrounded by floor to ceiling windows and sweeping decks connecting them with landscaped gardens, wildlife, and expansive water views across the Derwent Estuary.

The space
We are pleased to announce we have just won Silver for both Standard Accommodation and Eco-Tourism at the 2018 Tasmanian Tourism Awards. Previously Gold and Bronze respectively.

Our pods are architecturally designed eco-friendly, boutique accommodation. There are picturesque views to the ocean and of the rural setting with glimpses to Mount Wellington. The pods are a studio space with large bi-folding doors across one wall onto beautiful decks that wrap around the entire building. There is an ensuite equipped with a composting toilet, shower and basin. The king-sized bed can also be configured as two king singles. The kitchenette includes bar fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster and relevant crockery and cutlery. There is a mini bar available if you choose. Breakfast will be provided on request. Continental breakfast is $10 extra a person, and includes bread, toast, cereal, fruit and yogurt, jam and milk. Tea and coffee are included in the room price. There are magazines and games, comfy lounge and recliner, heater and TV. Open up the Bi-fold doors, and sit out on the decks and watch the alpacas in the next paddock and the extensive views beyond.

Additionally to your great experience, Hobart Hideaway Pods will donate $1 for every night booked to Wildcare Tasmania, a powerhouse team of volunteers and donors supporting the care and conservation of Tasmania's wild places, wildlife and cultural heritage, including the Tasmanian Devil and the rare and threatened species of orange-bellied parrot. Your booking gives back to preserving Tasmania!

Guest access
Car parking onsite. A short uphill stroll from the carpark to The Vanilla Pod.

Other things to note
The Pods have composting toilets (the luxurious kind) as a effort to minimise the impact on the earth. They are maintained to ensure your use is pleasant.
