    Beautiful apartment which is part of an historic old home but still very private. Great location in Hobart (around 10 mins walk to Salamanca) and extremely pleasant hosts. Really enjoyed our stay.

    Beautiful and spotless accommodation, great location and very comfortable stay. We are two couples and found the space and amenities more than adequate and surpassed our expectations. Highly recommend a stay here!!

    This was a fabulous experience! The room and ensuite were even better than the images suggested. We loved the fact we could sleep without a roof overhead during our stay. The neighbourhood is beautiful - lovely old homes and friendly people. We were able to walk everywhere - the hills kept us fit :-) We didnt see our hosts but they were contactable by text and provided us with extra towels as soon as we asked for them (we were there for four nights). We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation - hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Well our first Airbnb experience was an absolute delight. Both the property and Bec & Dermot our hosts were outstanding. The apartment we had within the Housekeepers Quarters was appointed easily to the equivalent of a 5 star hotel. The quality of the styling, fittings and furnishing was first rate, with little touches such as top notch toiletries, a great Sonus sound system, iPad and fresh milk and orange juice in the fridge on arrival. Comfy beds, soft towels, impeccably clean bathrooms and a great big bath were sumptuous highlights. For a self stated novice when they started with Airbnb, Bec has created a luxurious and comfortable property. The grounds are beautiful, the view is stunning and all the small details have been attended to such as private secure access and a comprehensive guide to eating and touring in the area. We felt instantly welcomed and at ease like as if we were friends dropping in to stay. We would not hesitate to return here as an absolute preference over any hotel in Hobart and not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone else.

    What James loved about your listing: 
    Loved every bit of the property, the decor was beautiful and felt very homely. You have obviously spent a great deal of time thinking through every thing that makes a stay comfortable and relaxing and we really appreciated that. Thanks for making us feel so welcome and we hope to visit again.

    What James thought you could improve about the experience: 
    Nothing that we can think of...you had so much more than we expected...even sunscreen :)

    Rebecca was very welcoming. She showed us the flat and told us the history. There was information in a folder about the area. Milk and fresh orange juice in the fridge.The flat was amazing , large and finished to a high standard. Perfect location, can't recommend highly enough.

    Excellent, luxurious, modern, great atmosphere and well designed. Bec is very nice and allowed us to check in early which was handy having arrived straight from the airport (subject to availability obviously). Would definately stay again.

    The cottage has been designed and appointment in an extremely stylish yet comfortable way. It was like staying in a five star hotel. Bec was a very gracious and kind host and especially child friendly. The master bed was so comfortable and the whole cottage was very cosy. The location was very convenient for the Salamanca Square and other attractions in the Hobart area.

    Rebecca was helpful and accommodating allowing us to drop our bags off early and check out late. The room was comfortable and clean. The attached balcony provided district views and was a nice place to unwind. The location was good. About ten to fifteen minute stroll to the harbour. I would recommend staying here.

  • Adam Pustola

    The former school house property is set in a leafy suburb, very close to the centre of Hobart. Rebecca welcomed us on arrival. The accommodation is a very elegant and contemporary addition to the historic property. As a group of three, we had plenty of space and comfort. We would highly recommend staying there.

    Terrific stay! Beautiful accommodations and central location. The hosts were great to deal with. Highly recommend, and would stay again without hesitation.

  • James Fitzgerald

    We had a fantastic time as Rebecca's guests. When we arrived, Rebecca was extremely helpful in telling us of nearby amenity, cafes, bars, transport and everything else that we would need. In addition, the accommodation was a really practical converted ship container with sonos sound system, fridge, and area for small meal preparation. The space was very cool and design both innovative and great to experience and see first hand. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you once again Rebecca.

  • Dawn Hopson

    Very welcoming hosts. Great location - walking distance to town. Was a great place to stay for 3 adults for a short stay.

  • Marlene Scicluna

    We absolutely loved our stay at the Old Bishop's Quarters! Such an interesting history, luxurious apartment and the best location!! Rebecca was very accommodating with us leaving our luggage before check in, which allowed us to make the most of our day. There is off street parking for guests, complimentary tea/coffee/milk/juice and water. A bath to die for and comfortable beds. We recommend the Old Bishop's Quarters to anyone visiting Hobart!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Rebecca's self contained apartment. Beautifully designed interior, very clean and conveniently located!

  • Mitch Anderson

    Great location, beautifully appointed pad. Loved the seclusion and privacy of this get away. The proximity to Salamanca and Sandy Bay is excellent. Excellent hosts.

     What Mitch loved about your listing: 
    Great, secluded. Loved the soaps. The tandem was fun!! Had a great time, thanks for having us.

  • Jack McCambridge

    Rebecca is a lovely host. Our "New Year's in Hobart" crew had a fairly complicated situation with multiple groups of friends traveling there for a wedding. Rebecca handled our requests generously & thoughtfully. And, more importantly the school house is terrific. Modern, well-appointed, and very welcoming. We had four friends staying there - a couple & two friends. Probably best suited for a family, a couple, or a couple & one friend. But, still lovely for our crew. If you're looking to have a great, Hobart experience with lovely hosts welcoming you, you can't go wrong staying with Rebecca.

  • Tanya Petrovich

    Fantastic location, beautiful residence our family really enjoyed staying here. We walked to the Market and Restaurants and enjoyed eating breakfast whilst looking at the wonderful views. Highly recommend this apartment and the hospitality provided by Rebecca and her family.

  • Greg Peronchik

    Rebecca made us feel at home in tasteful and spotless accommodation. Our apartment reflected a thoughtful attention to detail with nothing left wanting at a convenient location. Rebecca is a lovely hostess. Respectful of privacy and easy to talk to. Certainly enhanced our Hobart experience. We can only recommend!

    Rebecca was extremely welcoming and as it was the festive season and we were not with our own families, she surprised us with champagne, chocolates, and a Christmas tree! We loved staying in the Tutor's Cottage. It was fabulously comfortable, private, stylish, discreet and impeccably clean, and Rebecca had thought of every detail that we might need. She gave us information for shopping and exploring Hobart. It was lovely to be in view of the beautiful Bishop's House also. We had a great break despite stressing about the fires in Wye River near our homes in Victoria on Christmas Day. Thank you Rebecca and Dermott, we hope to come back again. Felicity and Marc

  •  What Felicity loved about your listing: 
    It was perfect for us. A roomy architect designed apartment with great flair and extremely comfortable and well thought out. It is close to everything in Hobart - the city centre, the harbour, historic sites etc, but far enough removed to be quiet and private. Absolutely fabulous.

  • Ellie Willoughby

    Couldn't be better! This is akin to a 6 star hotel with beautiful renovations of a character and history filled original building. I couldn't rate it highly enough

  • Alexandria Guttman

    Great place - very unique and well-maintained. Has everything you could possibly need for your stay and the hosts are very accommodating. No complaints here - highly recommend!

  • Keat Lai

    It's obvious that a lot of thought, effort and heart has been put into restoring the property. The unit is tastefully furnished and has all the required mod-cons of a modern apartment. Wonderful bookshelf with a great selection of local books (the book on Tasmanian produce is delightfully enlightening!). Rebecca was also a good host with good tips on local stores and restaurants. Thank you for hosting us!

  • Ananda Rubens

    Loved everything about Rebecca's historic school apartment. Great design, quality materials and interiors and all details well considered. Position is ideal for exploring the beautiful areas of Hobart, Sandy Bay, Battery Point and Salamanca. Rebecca was a gracious and considerate host. Many thanks for lovely stay x

  • Hilde Goodchild

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Old Housekeeper's Apartment. Very comfortable and very well presented. Everything we needed for a short stay in Hobart. We arrived earlier than planned and Rebecca's recommendation to lunch at the Cascades brewery was spot on. After a relaxing lunch we returned to find the apartment spotlessly clean and ready for us. We appreciated the orange juice and plunger coffee provided. Happy to recommend to our friends and would stay here again when visiting Hobart.

     What Hilde loved about your listing: 
    For four adults the apartment provided space and privacy with two bathrooms. Walking distance to Hobart dock. Rebecca is very friendly and welcoming.

  • Anthony Brooks

    Rebecca was AMAZING. She welcomed us and made us feel at home in the beautiful Tutor’s Apartment. I could not recommend this location and accommodation highly enough. We will be back when we are next in Hobart.

     What Anthony loved about your listing: 
    Everything!

  • Domi Liard

    Everything was perfect! The flat is absolutely beautiful and super clean. The location is perfect and in easy walking distance to the harbor, the city, shoppes and restaurants. Absolutely recommended!

     What Domi loved about your listing: 
    We absolutely loved the keyless entry, the open shower and the bedding was very comfortable. The location was perfect too.

  • Yue Yiao Lim

    The apartments was beautiful and had everything we needed. Location was good, walking distance to town, and there was a fantastic Italian restaurant just a few streets down. We really enjoyed the bathtub and the beds were very comfortable. Nicole and her family were very friendly and always available to help.

     Private Feedback: 
    Spacious apartments and comfortable beds. Loved staying in a heritage building.

  • Philippe Le Fevre

    A wonderful place to stay. The old school house haas been very stylishly designed. The aesthetic is clean modern with a few notable references to the property's historic origins. The result is excellent. The place is beautiful, practical and, unusually for such modern design, cosy, The interior is even more attractive in real life than in the pictures. The bathroom / shower room is one of the most beautiful I have seen. Love the bathtub. Rebecca and her family went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They were great hosts, available but completely out of the way. We look forward to returning one day to enjoy one of the rooms with a view.

    We had a lovely stay at the Tutors apartment. Everything was thought of and provided and we felt very welcome. The apartment had a fabulous modern design and a lovely view of the water. Just a short walk to Salamanca, too!

  • Mieke Du Plessis

    We had a wonderful time at the apartment! Rebecca was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. The apartment is perfect with amazing attention to detail. The neighbourhood is quite peaceful and it's about 15 minutes walk down to Battery Point. I would definitely recommend this lovely place to anyone looking for a home base from which to explore Hobart and surrounds!

     What Mieke loved about your listing: 
    Such a lovely place and a wonderful stay! The apartment was perfectly kitted out. We spent much more time hanging around at the apartment than we expected we would.. haha. I was sceptical about the egg chair - until I sat in it.

  • Kim Harris

    Bec was a fabulous host, really welcoming and easy to contact if needed. The apartment is great, well thought out with lots of nice touches including recommendations on where to eat and things to do. The view over the bay from the kitchen is lovely to. Would certainly recommend and would love to stay again next time we are looking for a relaxing break in Hobart.

  • Heather Paterson

    Rebecca went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay, and helped make our visit to Hobart fantastic. The accommodation was spotless, spacious enough for 4 adults comfortably. Bedding was hotel quality and the bathroom was stunning with very good quality finishes! All the little extras were great (milk in fridge, shampoo, bathrobes) as well as some advise on restaurants and things to do. I would certainly recommend and hope to visit again myself soon!

    Tutors Apartment in Sandy Bay is just incredible! The 2 bedroom apartment is absolutely top of the line in terms of modern amenities. With a great kitchen, living area, balcony, 2 bedrooms Combined with the absolutely perfect location, it's an easy wall top all the top spots from Battery Point, Salamanca and Sandy Bay. Your host Rebecca, is also just fantastic! Can't wait to return!

  • Keira Ralston

    We had such a comfortable stay in Rebecca's beautifully renovated historical building. All the trimmings to add a touch of luxury to our stay in Hobart. Rebecca was so helpful and welcoming... would highly recommend and will definitley stay here again!

  • Tim Amos

    Bec was a fantastic host. Accommodating and lovely. Gave us a great rundown of local spots. The place was perfect. Within walking distance of Salamanca and Constitution Dock. Thanks Bec we'll be back!

  • Allison Lazarus

    This place is beautiful. Half of it is the old schoolhouse, and the other half is a recent addition with heated floors and a fantastic bathroom. The bed is large and comfy, and the whole place feels homely. You're a bit outside the city, but can walk downtown in about 15-20 minutes. There is also a grocery and liquor store nearby if you want to stay in (however the kitchen is small and basic). Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Rebecca was the perfect host - friendly, professional and attentive. She responded to all my correspondence in a prompt and efficient manner. Rebecca warmly welcomed us to the Old School House on arrival and made us feel immediately at home. Whilst the information and images provided on the Airbnb site was accurate and informative, The Old School House far exceeded our very high expectations. It was immaculate in every sense - cleanliness, quality bed linen, towels, soaps and furnishings. Located in the quiet and lovely residential pocket of Sandy Bay we were able to walk to Franklin restaurant for dinner (20 minutes) and to Pigeon Hole for a coffee/breakfast (5-10 minutes). Access to parking on site was also a bonus. It was immediately apparent upon entering the Old School House that much effort has been made in remodelling the original building, the various spaces and the interior design of it. The lounge area was cosy and provided a lovely space to sit, read and relax. The opportunity to stream music through the iPad, that was provided, was a real joy as we often prefer to listen to music rather than watch the TV. Access to music and good quality sound is seldom a priority for most hosts and we were really delighted to see that Rebecca took much care in providing this option for her guests. The bed was most comfortable as were the pillows. The two areas are separated by way of a partition cabinet without restricting the living room or bedroom areas. The kitchen was spacious and well appointed as was the bathroom. The enormous bath tub was a true indulgence. Glazed sections in the kitchen/meals area, skylights and windows and a small outdoor space provided access to lots of natural light. Our stay at the Old School House was certainly special - making it very difficult to leave and for other properties to compete with. The extremely high standard, overall, and attention to detail, cannot be ignored nor can Rebecca's desire to ensure her guests have a memorable stay. This has been one of our best Airbnb experiences to date (6 stars) - thank you Rebecca - we look forward to returning to the Old School House in the very near future.

     What Georgina loved about your listing: 
    Thank you for a most wonderful stay Rebecca - we have been truly spoilt from this moment on. The very high level of detail, cleanliness and the warm and welcoming feel one gets from staying at the Old School House was really appreciated. We look forward to returning - albeit for a longer stay next time. Thank you again for your flexibility and allowing us to stay the single night.
