Richard Oct 18 - Loved Heather & Dennis's place in West Hobart - convenient for the CBD, great views down to the water and good cafes, restaurants and amenities on the doorstep. Great location if you have small kids with a couple of parks on the doorstep. And our hosts were super helpful
Mick Sep 18: Extremely comfortable family accommodation in a great part of Hobart. Quiet, with every amenity you need. Walk to the CBD & waterfront or have a coffee on the verandah & take in the view. Do as much or as little as you like. A great place to stay.
