If you’re on the hunt for an awesome place to stay during your next getaway, we’ve lined up the best Airbnbs in Hobart for your viewing pleasure.
From luxurious lodges to novelty barns, the Airbnbs in Hobart really do pack a punch. And trust us, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a comfy bed to come back to after a few days (or a week or two) in Hobart because there is just so much to do.
Fringed by scenic wilderness, fine dining, museums, Hobart is a bustling city filled with gastronomic adventures and activities; book a feed at the mini neighbourhood haunt known as Templo, slap on your hiking boots for a trip up Mount Wellington, spend several hours at MONA (duh) and work your way through an abundance of breweries and microbreweries. And that will just be your first day.
Read on for the best Airbnbs in Hobart.
No big deal but Lumiere Lodge is kind of a big deal. Beautifully styled, minimal and filled with antique windows and furniture, this is the kind of Airbnb in Hobart where you sip Symphony Nº1 from Lark Distillery by the fire and snack on Ashgrove cheese in the clawed foot bath until your fingers turn pruney. Here, you’ll be close to Old Hobart Town which is also a complete state of mind so leave your Kindle at home and bring your hardcover beauties. If you love cooking, nab up some produce from Salamanca Markets and go town to town in the traditional English kitchen.
As well as whisky, truffles, beautiful lavender fields and alpine lakes, Tasmania is known for copping some of the cleanest and most crisp air in the world so you’d do well to book an Airbnb in Hobart that honours this very idea. Enter Tassie Wild, a simple hideaway with a not so simple view. If you’re rendezvous-ing down this way with your significant other, add the ‘Romance Me’ package for $90 to upgrade your getaway with chilled Tasmanian sparkling and artisan Tassie chocolates.
If you’re the type of person who likes to stay somewhere because of the novelty, look no further than Hobart’s dedicated Airbnb barn. Close to Salamanca and Battery Point, this converted 1820s sandstone barn has left no detail untouched with original walls, exposed beams and a timber shingled roof (take that Architect Digest). Wake up, order a latte at Betsy, pick up a picnic from Pigeon Hole Bakers, feast on wallaby tartare and lamb ribs at Aloft and do it all over again the next day!
Cosy Urban Luxe Apartment
We hear you—where are Hobart’s oversized daybeds and sundrenched windows to lap up Tassie’s gorgeous surrounds. To that we say, right here. Pimped out with ocean views, a cast iron claw-foot bath and just a short stroll from the iconic Hill Street gourmet grocer, we dare you not to fall in love with this Airbnb in Hobart.
As one of the most luxurious stays in Hobart, we have to shout Slow Beam out. Equal parts modern and rugged, this West Hobart Airbnb sports views of the Derwent River, South Hobart and Sandy Bay thanks to its floor to ceiling windows. Culture vultures can rest peacefully will walls adorned with works from the likes of Grant Featherston, Esther Stewart, Anna Varendorff, Ebony Truscott, Kirsten Perry and Fred Ganim. Foodies will stan the complimentary Taylor & Smith cocktails and those looking to go offline for a weekend will be able to read a book or play boardgames next to the fireplace.
