Welcome to our home on the Carlton River mouth, affectionately known by us as ‘La Boca’ (The Mouth).
Only 35 minutes from the CBD and 20mins from Hobart airport, and sitting right on the water's edge, La Boca is very private and nestled in between large areas of Crown Land. We enjoy multiple panoramic views of the water and surrounding coastline, and delight in watching the sun set over Mount Wellington from the deck.
La Boca is well equipped with 2 x double bedrooms, 2 x single bed rooms, with the option for additional fold-out single beds on request.
Kitchen facilities include a gas cook top and oven, walk-in pantry, and a fully-equipped kitchen suitable to cater for a group of friends or the whole family. A great array of miscellaneous provisions are supplied, including coffee (real), tea, sugar and hot beverages; salt, pepper, herbs and spices; oil, vinegar, sauces and condiments.
Our living space is sun-filled and light, with plenty of room and multiple comfy seating spaces. Our extension dining table can seat 10, should a meal with friends be on the cards.
There are many interesting books to read and board games to play. We do have good internet and audiovisual access, however you may be so captivated by the view you may not turn it on once!
We are well-equipped for children, with bikes, games and a huge trampoline, etc. There are many picturesque outdoor areas, including a picnic table under the huge old pine tree, and a sunny deck area perfect for entertaining or relaxing.
All linen is provided, inclusive of bathroom and beach towels. Please bring your own toiletries.
The bathroom has a shower and bath, and there is also a laundry for your use (laundry powder is provided).
Please enjoy access to the private jetty and the boat shed, housing the double kayaks, & small rowing boat, the ‘M.V. Goondoola’. There are two life-jackets for children. You also have access to fishing gear, so you can try your luck catching the salmon, flathead, or flounder in the river at your front door, or short stroll across the estuary to popular fishing spot at the river mouth to Carlton Beach.
Internet access (WiFi) is also provided.
