Perched on the side of a hill this large, contemporary house has spectacular views of the Derwent River from almost every room. Providing an escape from the everyday, set in private, secluded grounds with lovely gardens. A perfect holiday retreat, beautifully furnished and fully equipped.

Relax in the large, sunny living room, taking in the view through the extensive windows. Glass sliding doors lead out onto the huge deck where you can chill out on a banana lounge and watch the constantly changing activity on the river. Budding chefs can cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen.

The house can sleep 10 to 12 people. There are four bedrooms upstairs and there are additional beds setup downstairs in the rumpus.

Bedroom 1

This is the master bedroom. It has a queen size bed, an ensuite, a walk-in-robe and water views. This room can also fit a cot, if required.

Bedroom 2

This is the largest upstairs room. It has a king size bed (that can be split into 2 single beds), fitted robe, it's own private balcony and water views. this room can also fit a cot, if required.

Bedroom 3

This room has 2 Single beds and garden views

Bedroom 4

This room has a queen bed and garden views

All these bedrooms are upstairs, on the same level as the kitchen-dining, living room and main bathroom.


The rumpus is downstairs and has a king size bed (that can be split into 2 single beds) and 2 additional single beds. The room is very large, has its own couch and TV and water views. This room can also fit a cot, if required.

The downstairs also has its own bathroom, with shower and vanity, and a separate powder room with toilet and vanity.

Enjoy the extra luxuries with a spa bath in the main bathroom upstairs, large LCD TV in the living room and dishwasher and pod coffee machine in the kitchen.

Only 5 minutes drive to the centre of Hobart or leave the car behind (parking for three cars on site) and take the bus from the bottom of the driveway.

A port-a-cot and highchair are available, on request, for use during your stay and there is also a selection of games to keep the kids (and adults!) amused.

A large reverse cycle air conditioner keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter. There are panel heaters in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms and heated floors in all bathrooms.


Sandy Bay is one of Hobart's premier suburbs. It follows the River Derwent, from the outskirts of Hobart city, south, as far as Taroona (made famous by Princess Mary of Denmark). Sandy Bay is the home of the University of Tasmania and Wrest Point Casino and is only a few minutes drive from Hobart CBD.

The suburb has its own shopping village where you will find a Coles and Woolworths as well as a selection of smaller shops, including a great butcher and bakery. All the major banks have branches in the village and there is also a post office. There are a selection of excellent cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. These are all an easy drive from the house. Sandy Bay also has a lovely beach and one of the best seafood restaurants in Tasmania!

There is an excellent and regular bus service connecting Sandy Bay to the city, which passes the end of the driveway to the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful spacious apartment a fantastic home with beautiful views. we were a family of six and the home was very spacious as was the bedrooms. Very well maintained and had everything you needed. Only downside was the driveway as the driveway is very steep and can be quite difficult to drive your car to the top. Highly recommend this home if you are a travelling with a group/family.
