    The space is amazing. Small but comfortable. Very modern and clean. Great space for a couple visiting Tasmania.

    Beautiful place to stay, very comfortable and warm on cold Hobart days and nights, we were welcomed by Dermot and he went through details of good spots to see and to eat. Very private and close to everything in Hobart. We would stay there again.

    Due to circumstance, we didn't get to meet Dermot, and Rebecca was away, but their communication was really good and proactive. I love the imagination and diversity in shipping contained conversions, as Rebecca's is a very good example. It's contemporary, very well appointed, thoughtful finishes and cosy. A great location and a nice place for a short stay. Thanks.

    Response from Rebecca: 
    Thanks Bernard. Sorry we didn't get a chance to say hello. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes.

    Wonderful! Such a great little romantic spot. The building is a completely separate granny-flat that faces away from the main house so you have complete privacy. Little fridge + cutlery and such to make some toast plus there is a bbq for more substantial cooking but we did not use that. The roof opens up too! So you can see the stars. Rebecca was away but her son helped us check in, showed us everything and left us his number in case we needed. Great location (you are 5 mins drive / short walk from EVERYTHING), amazing little spot of luxury. Would highly recommend for couples having a romantic stay away in Hobart! :)

    We had a fantastic stay at Monty's school house,the central location made it easy to explore the beautiful city. The place was clean, warm and inviting. I contacted the owner about the possibility of an earlier check in, they replied quickly and allowed us to check in hours earlier. Bed was very comfortable, and the heated floor and fireplace were a welcome addition for a Hobart winter night. The only issue we had during our stay is that on both mornings only one of us managed to have a hot shower.

    Rebecca's place was great. Perfect location, the apartment was clean and sleek. It was better than a hotel. Friendly hosts. Would recommend and go back.

    We absolutely loved staying at Monty's Hideaway for 2 nights. It was just the right size for our quick trip and a good base to see what Hobart has to offer. There were no cooking facilities so we ate out each night at one of the MANY recommended cafes, restaurants or bars. The retracting roof was very exciting and despite the cool nights, we had perfect weather to have it open to watch the stars. We also particularly loved the heated floors, especially in the bathroom. Dermott was very helpful and accommodating to any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone and would be back to visit any of the accommodation by Rebecca and Dermott. Thanks again!

    A smaller space yet it never feels small with the retractable roof, the open bathroom plan, and the comfortable bed. The views in the morning from the large windows were equally as amazing! Rebecca's husband stayed up late to meet with us after a small delay in our arrival and provided us with plenty of restaurants to choose from as well as a history of the home (it has a really fascinating story!). We could only use the open roof for one night due to mother nature, but it was amazing to count stars and watch the clouds go by. It's a very unique place to stay and yet you are within walking distance of so many great spots in Hobart. The fact that the house is tucked away from the street meant it was really quiet despite being so close to everything. We really loved staying here and would certainly recommend to friends!

    What Michelle loved about your listing: 
    The retractable roof was a really unique touch as well as the heated floors and open shower plan. Despite it's small size, we never felt cramped as the space was very well-designed and afforded amazing views both across the town and up to the sky.

    What Michelle thought you could improve about the experience: 
    No complaints! Everything was great with no trouble.

    My first time booking with Air BnB - excellent description of property and i wasn't disappointed with the property. We enjoyed our 3 night stay and were able to access Hobart City Centre and Salamanca very easily with a 10 -15 minute walk.

    What Belinda loved about your listing: 
    Comfortable and attention to detail.

    We had an amazing stay at the Hideaway. It's a lovely little place that made us felt very cozy and comfortable. It's located near the cbd and you can easily walk everywhere. We loved it!

    Amazing place, beautifully decorated and very clean. The heated floor and fire place were a welcome addition during a cold July! A short walk into town, we didn't need a car. Could not fault it. Great communication with the owner. Would definitely stay again!

    Bec was all over the hosting. Complete with emails mid week to get us excited about our visit to Hobart. Monty's hideaway was pure bliss. Just what the doctor ordered. Quiet, warm and with a stunning view of the southern sky right above head. Amazing.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Rebecca's apartment! Extremely homely and comfortable - the robes were a luxurious touch! Would highly recommend staying here.

    I cannot stress enough how wonderful this AirBnb & its hosts are! This is what makes AirBnb so special. First off, the space is exactly how it is depicted in the photos & description--unique and wonderful and definitely romantic. The heated floors made the space even more comfortable in the Hobart winter. Despite the chilly weather, we still had a clear evening to open up the retractable roof and gaze up at the stars while lying comfortably under the covers. Rebecca gave us the warmest welcome--greeting us as though we were old friends and then providing us with a meticulously compiled booklet of restaurant, bar, & cafe recommendations. The AirBnb is cozy & situated in their backyard, however it is secluded and we felt that we were in our own private space the whole time. There is parking on the premises & we walked to/from downtown Hobart the whole time we were there (maximum 20 minute walk, other areas such as Salamanca Market are closer). A wonderful space, wonderful host, wonderful corner of the world--I cannot recommend it enough! Definitely would stay here again!

    What Peter loved about your listing: 
    As you can tell--we had a fantastic stay. Thank you!
