Corinna's glasshouse is a brand new architecturally designed garden residence, maximising passive solar gain and built specifically for guest accommodation. I live with my family in Corinna, the Victorian heritage listed house adjacent and we know and love the area well. Stoke St is a wide tree lined heritage registered street boasting numerous character homes with magnificent Mt Wellington as a backdrop. Corinna's glasshouse is supremely sunny and light filled for Hobart's cool winter climate.

The space

Corinna's glasshouse is north facing and everything is brand new, contemporary and finished to a high standard, with double glazing and a polished concrete floor to act as a heat bank. As such everything is exceptionally clean and tidy. For additional warmth there is a reverse cycle heat pump and a wood box for guests. 2 sets of double bi-fold doors open onto a deck for cross ventilation in summer. There are stairs leading to a bedroom loft, with both carpeted and hard areas which requires supervision of small children and people with limited mobility. Two queen size bedrooms and bathroom are on the ground level. We have several seasonal fruit trees including apricot, apple, walnut, cherry, oranges and grapefuit as well as olive trees. A maturing vegetable garden is also available for visitor use.

Guest access

Guests use the 2 car left hand side driveway (2/21 Stoke St) to access the glasshouse using a private garden laneway. An intercom security gate leads to the property. Guests can choose self check-in or usually I am available to meet and greet and offer breakfast or groceries.

Interaction with guests

Generally I can be onsite, or next door in Corinna, to assist with arrival and access and someone will be available in person or by phone if the need arises during visitors stay. I will also leave easy to read laminated instructions for appliance use. I always provide a good range of condiments and food supplies for guests, including a range of breakfast cereals and other breakfast needs such as juice, milk, bread or crumpets, jams and honey. There is also a package display folder of tourist guides and brochures show casing Tasmania's finest foods, wine and tourist destinations. I am very happy to recommend local cafes and coffee shops should guests wish to eat out.

Other things to note

There are oak stairs in the glasshouse leading to the upstairs bedroom and small children need to be supervised. If liquid is spilled on the polished floor it should be dried immediately for safety. The toilet seats are soft closing and need not be forced. A wall hung Smart TV provides movies, music, video and social media needs depending on individual account subscription.

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend and lived every minute of it. We were greeted by Fionna with fresh baked cookies and warm hospitality. The house was spacious, clean and very modern, with all the creature comforts we could want. The house is not even a ten minute drive from the harbour, and super easy to get to from the airport.. great neighbourhood with a view of the snow capped mountains from the upstairs bedroom. If we were to come to tassie again, would definitely consider coming back to the glasshouse! Thanks so much for having us!!

Our stay at The Glasshouse was fantastic! We arrived tired and a bit travel-weary to a lovely clean, warm house with basic provisions in the fridge and soft inviting beds. Being so central to everything in Hobart made it the perfect base from which to explore Hobart and surrounds. Fiona and her family were non-intrusive and yet available to attend to anything we needed. Literally cannot fault our 9 day stay in any way.

Thank you Christie and Grace and Issac and Paul, we really appreciate your review and your friendliness- you are a very special, and adventurous family indeed!! Please take care as you return home and we hope you enjoy the quad bike riding on the East Coast trails. Safe Travels, Fionna

Had the loveliest stay at the glasshouse with friends. It's an absolutely lovely home in pristine condition, very clean with great facilities. Especially loved the fireplace when we got it roaring! It made the stay in Tasmania all the more enjoyable, a little home away from home. Fionna and her husband Neil were some of the nicest hosts I've ever come across on airbnb. Incredibly welcoming and helpful, as well as responsive to any queries. Would definitely return in a heartbeat.

Response from Fionna:
Thanks Arinne and friends for the positive feedback! It has been a pleasure to meet you and host during your holiday here. We are thrilled that you felt it was a home away from home as that is the sort of environment we were hoping to create. Thanks again and all the best.
