“Awesome!”

What a place to unwind! The Boat Shed is simplicity itself. What more do you need than the deck to muse about the world elsewhere with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot Noir and King Island Cheese?
Waking up each morning from the bed to the view of Mortimer Bay and across the Derwent to Mount Wellington was simply devine.
If you want a peaceful location with only nature as your neighbour this is the place

“Peace & Tranquility”

The Boat Shed is in an idyllic, peaceful setting an easy drive from Hobart. It is fully self contained with all facilities you require. When we arrived there was a welcome selection of provisions. Our host, Judy, faultlessly managed our booking and payment and made us feel very welcome.
If you're looking for tranquility, great facilities and magnificent views across Mortimer Bay and the Derwent towards Hobart & Mt. Wellington, then this is the place for you.

“Perfect start to our Tasmania getaway”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Delightful place to stay, so peaceful and quiet. The views of Hobart and Mt Wellington are stunning. Moonlight on the water is unforgettable. The Boat Shed is well appointed and very comfortable. Our hosts were gracious and friendly.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is extremely comfortable, quiet, yet a good base
for visiting many areas of southern Tasmania this is the best we have seen. Judy responded enthusiastically to all our needs. Nearby supermarket excellent, particularly for prepared foods. Highly recommended.

“Great place to unwind and relax.”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Beautiful part of the world. Wonderful view and very private. Weather conditions change quickly - from hot and sunny to cold windy and wet - but stil breathtaking views no matter what conditions. All food provided was fresh and/or homemade which was a lovely touch - especially the banana bread. 20-25 min drive from Hobart but a lovely drive. Plenty of nearby restaurants to eat. Definitely would go back and stay there.

“If you are visiting Hobart this is THE place to stay”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My partner and I spent three nights at The Boat Shed. We didnt want to leave! The location is spectacular and the accommodation equally so. Everything about this place is special. It feels so comfortable, cosy and welcoming. Judy has thought of everything, right down to the homemade bread. We couldnt believe the wonderful breakfast provisions. Everything had been provided. If youre looking for a secluded, restful and romantic hideaway then look no further. Its the perfect spot to while away days on end or to use as a base to explore this wonderful part of Tasmania. You cannot possibly be disappointed...except having to leave. We will certainly be back
