“Awesome with great hosts!”

person found this review helpful

We recently enjoyed a nine night stay at the Gardens Apartment – what a great find! The accommodation itself was spotlessly clean and it's in a lovely, quiet location. A perfect little place to stay, tucked away yet accessible to public transport, if needed. You are 10 minutes from Hobart City center and even closer to “Lipscombe Larder” on Sandy Bay Road. Trust me - don't pass this Larder by - it has everything the gourmet food lover could desire and more!
Tom and Pam are the perfect hosts - we didn't want for anything! They are friendly, extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay really enjoyable. The coffee maker was on the blink during our stay but the “alternative” arrangement for our morning coffee, courtesy of Tom, was even better – he is a true barista!
The only thing to note would maybe be that the bedroom is upstairs and bathroom down. It was fine for us but if you do struggle with stairs it’s handy to know – they are not steep, are well lit and there is a banister.
We would thoroughly recommend!

“Home away from Home experience”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I found our stay at The Gardens Apartment in Hobart to be a "home away from home" experience. The self-contained apartment was meticulous, equipped with a gourmet kitchen, dishwasher, washing & coffee machine. The loft bedroom was cosy and spacious and the bed and pillows extremely comfortable. The whole environment was cosy, warm, private and peaceful. An added bonus was having views onto the lovely garden created by our hosts. Having use of the private undercover carport provided peace of mind for the rental vehicle and was only two steps from the front door. The apartment is in a great location only minutes away from the delightful Lipscombe Larder, Supermarkets, fuel depot and liquor outlets and very close to the city/Salamanca Markets/Battery Point etc. This was our first trip to Tasmania but it won't be our last. Would we stay again at The Gardens Apartment and would we recommend to family and friends? Most definitely!! Our hosts Tom and Pam are lovely people they equipped this apartment with the little extras that gave it that special appeal, DVD's, apples, chocolates, jams and books etc and we would like to thank them both so much for making our "honeymoon" a memorable time.

“Thoroughly enjoyed, home away from home but perfection!”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Tom and Pam,
Congratulations on a beautiful, well appointed and thought out apartment!
Absolutely a credit to you both and a wonderful last place for our accommodation stay during this trip to tassie. ( We had a few disappointments ).
Information booklet very informative and written in laymen's terms instead of being filled with brochures, Anything else Tom is eager to inform!
Easy access also, parking outside front door.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and you are to be commended.
See you again soon, glad you all enjoyed the fresh tuna!

“Just perfect setting, location and facilities with fantastic hosts.”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A beautiful garden setting and very well appointed apartment. The location is ideal for day trips around Hobart. Tom and Pam offer great tips for travellers in this area.
The apartment offers all the amenities required for a stay and beautifully decorated.
Tom and Pam are terrific hosts who are non-intrusive yet readily warm and approachable for all your needs and questions.
We loved everything about this stay for a week.

“Look no further”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

There is no reason not to rent this property unless you fancy paying exorbitant amounts for a wee hotel room ;)
Hospitable hosts who respond promptly and are friendly yet respect your privacy.

Just about 6-7km from the centre of town with a parking lot and all the amenities you need for an extremely comfortable stay. Great kitchen, bathroom, living areas and honestly I've never slept in a better bed while on holidays. Being a clean freak, the cleanliness of this property was honestly remarkable.

I couldn't figure on the coffee pod machine but then again Tom the host was just around the corner and I could have easily reached out to him!

“welcoming, spotless, relaxing - so close to the shore and to Hobart - fabulous!”
Reviewed April 18, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We spent a lovey 8 days in this apartment. Everything about it suited us to a tee. If we had planned a holiday apartment of our own this would be it. The added bonus of welcoming tea/coffee and a few provisions in the pantry meant we could relax as soon as we arrived.
There are walks along the shore very close by, and it is on the bus route straight into Hobart.
The towels are soft and fresh, we just needed to ask for an extra couple as we stayed more than a few days.
The photos on Tripadvisor made me feel a bit homesick for this apartment! And the gardens are very pretty too, they are maturing and changing daily. I'm a bit jealous of Tom and Pam's veggie patch.

“Fantastic accommodation close to Hobart centre”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Gardens Apartment in late March-early April 2016.

The apartment is located about 10 minutes drive to Hobart centre, and 20 mins to Hobart airport. There's a bus stop close to the house, so if you're planning on staying in Hobart, there is no need to rent a car.
It is situated just off Channel Hwy, surrounded by a beautiful garden. Although this busy road is nearby, you don't see or hear it once you're inside.

This loft style accommodation is suitable for 2 people, and consists of a small sitting area, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a separate toilet on the ground floor, and a spacious bedroom on the first floor.
It's equipped with a gas heater in the sitting room, and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. Warming up the cottage takes literally a minute.
There's a large TV, DVD player, 2 comfortable leather chairs and a small coffee table in the sitting area.
Kitchen has a mini fridge, a microwave with a grill function, a gas stove top, small dishwasher and a full size washing machine. There's also a coffee pod machine, with some pods provided by the owners, a toaster and a mini-grill.
The kitchen has all crockery and cutlery you might need for your stay, as well as pots and pans.
Black and herbal tea, sugar, salt, pepper, flour is provided for guests' convenience. Hosts have also provided milk, yogurts, butter, some jams and marmalade for the first couple of days.
There's dish-washing liquid and powder for the dishwasher, as well as some laundry powder available for guests to use.

The king (?) bed is very comfortable, with high quality bed linen and a beautiful quilt. There's an extra blanket for guests' convenience, if it's too cold. Fluffy towels are provided in the bathroom, as well as good quality shampoo and conditioner, liquid soaps (in both bathroom and toilet), and shower gel. There's also a professional hairdryer provided for guests' use.

There is undercover parking available at the house, and guests are welcome to use the garden, which has a gorgeous sitting area.

The apartment is of a very high standard, with high quality finishes, furniture and bed linens provided.

WiFi is free and worked well.

The hosts Pam and Tom are very attentive, friendly, yet very discreet.

I would definitely recommend this accommodation to my friends and family.
