Derwent Vista is a fully furnished 1980's self contained villa with absolute waterfront to the Derwent river and great views of the river, yachts at anchor, Mount Direction and Gunner's Quoin and is located at 10 Harbinger Lane Austins Ferry off Austins Ferry road.
Derwent Vista is an ideal base for business or pleasure as it is close to major businesses and tourist attractions and the Brooker highway which is the main route to Tasmania's west and north from Hobart. To get to the property you actually drive past the corner of historic James Austin Park where the first ferry in Tasmania and second oldest building in Tasmania are located.
Derwent Vista is rented short to medium term at competitive rates and is suitable for business people looking for somewhere to stay, a retreat or quiet place to work or holiday makers keen on sampling the many attractions that the Hobart region is famous for.
Derwent Vista is self contained and fully furnished. The property has three bedrooms and the master bedroom has an en suite bathroom/toilet. There is also a large separate bathroom with separate toilet and wash basin. The modern fully equipped spacious kitchen has wonderful views and there is a separate laundry. On the deck there is a barbecue.
The property is equipped with fridge, stove, washing machine and drier, TV, stereo etc. Towels, linen, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and enough milk to get you started are also provided. Derwent Vista sleeps up to 9 people and one baby (See Room/Bed Configuration). All main rooms have wonderful views of the Derwent River and Mount Direction. It has a large riverside garden dominated by an ancient bhutan cyprus hedge and a very old elm planted by Lady Franklin.
The property is bordered to the east by water and by parks on the west side of Harbinger Lane. The local Yacht club and launching ramp are close by and shops and public transport on the old main road are both a short walk away and easily accessed by vehicle.
Area & Activities

On or adjacent to Derwent Vista are swimming in the Derwent, fishing, boating or just walking in the parks. If you bring a bike you can use it! If not use ours! The Derwent provides opportunities for white water canoeing or jetboating further upstream at the historic town of New Norfolk or enjoy a more relaxing time playing golf or bowling at local clubs.
Cadburys, Moorilla, MONA, Richmond, Salmon Ponds, Alpenrail and Bonorong Wildlife Park are all family favourites and close by. There is an RSL, golfing and bowling clubs less than a couple of km away.
Tasmania is endowed with every activity possible from jetboating to skiing, from mountain climbing to some of the best walking in the world. Snorkelling or surfing, fishing or just snoozing on a beach are all within an hour or so of Derwent Vista.

Salamanca market is a must on Saturday, Moorilla winery is very close to spend the afternoon listening to jazz and tasting their wares. If history and old buildings are your interest, Richmond is only 35 minutes away.
