Simon and Donna are terrific hosts and a joy to talk with. We greatly enjoyed our stay and the apartment is beautiful, spacious, clean, modern and with a breathtaking view. House is in a nice and quiet neighborhood but yet only a 15 minute drive to Hobart--it makes for a very peaceful yet convenient stay. It is also just a two minute walk from a beautiful cliff walk that takes you into the nearby town of Kingston in about 20 minutes. Highly recommended!! Would definitely stay again. PS The kitchen is fully stocked with good pots, cooking utensils and a dishwasher, so great for staying in and making dinner!

This is a really beautiful spot - the accommodation is very good and modern, the views over the sea lovely, and its really quiet. However its only a short car journey into Hobart. Suited us really well, and would have liked to stay longer. Simon very friendly and welcoming.

Amazing property. Loved the space, location, wildlife and walking track. Got to meet Simon and his son, both very friendly. Highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again if it's available again when we come back.

The place was nice and clean and as described. There was an assortment of goodies to welcome us, which was a very nice touch. We liked the location away from the crowds but still close to supermarkets and shops. Hobart is just a short drive away.

Simon has created a wonderful place that is thoughtfully equipped with everything that you might need for your stay. It is spacious and well finished with water views. He was a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble. The location is beautiful and within easy reach of Hobart if you have a car. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

My stay at Simon's place was beautiful and I loved it so much. Would recommend anyone stay there. Very clean and tidy and I felt very at home. Thanks Simon!

This place was exactly what you hope to find when you use Airbnb. An amazing gem of an apartment with a beyond words view. Finished to incredibly high standards with all the amenities you could need. You'd never find this in a hotel. Simon and his wife were incredibly gracious. They told us about local hikes, helped with laundry, and even brought a bbq for us! I'd highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great retreat in Tassie.
