Your home away from home in a picturesque location in Hobart. A short walk to attractions and great dining options.
The Rivulet Retreat is available for short term accommodation for up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms. It has Miele appliances in the great kitchen where you can enjoy the view out of the picture postcard window. You can relax with a drink on the wonderful deck listening to the creek below. It also has spectacular views of Mt Wellington and the surrounding hills. High end furnishings have been utilised throughout, and along with the spectacular setting and close proximity to all that Hobart has to offer, this property would be perfect for your next getaway.
The bedroom configuration is a Queen bed in the master bedroom and two XL single beds in the second bedroom, or alternatively these can be joined together to make a King Size bed in the second bedroom to allow for two couples to stay.
We also provide a portacot and a highchair. There is no cost for using these, however you will need to bring your own linen for the portacot. We can provide linen for the portacot for an additional cost if required.
We will do whatever we can to make your stay in our much loved house as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Things to do for children
There is a children's playground at the end of the street only 5 mins walk with all the usual swings and slides. There are also plenty of grass areas along the rivulet walking track, over the creek, to play ball games etc.
In the house we have a number of games and we will be increasing the options over time.
As we have unlimited NBN high speed internet and free wifi, kids will be able to watch youtube videos, movies and a whole range of TV options either on the TV or on tablets or laptops etc if you have them. We have also provided Netflix on the TV.
The back garden is big enough for kids to play in and is fully fenced.
Over the back fence is the Hobart Rivulet and older kids would love wandering along this looking for fish or hoping to see a platypus or ducks.
What if I don't have kids or the adults want something to do
Ginger Brown or Honey Brown vegetarian/vegan cafes are only a 7 min walk away and is very highly rated on Trip Advisor so why not spoil yourself for breakfast or lunch one day.
There is also the Rivulet Cafe, Le Provencal French restaurant and the Macquarie St Food Store Cafe all within 10 mins walk.
Take a tour at the Cascade Brewery or explore the Cascade Gardens - 15 min walk
Visit the very famous MONA - 15 mins drive or catch the ferry from town
Visit the World Heritage listed Female Factory to learn about our convict past - 10 mins walk away
Walk along the very picturesque Hobart Rivulet walking track which is just over the creek - either in to town or towards the Brewery.
Go rockclimbing at Freuhauf - which is directly over the back fence and is great for intermediate or above climbers.
Mountainbike on Mt Wellington or Knocklofty reserve - both within riding distance if you are a keen rider.
The Hobart City centre is under 5mins drive away, or a 30min walk and there is also bus stop at the end of the street.
