Interaction with guests
Beng and I live about ten minutes away from the apartment so will generally be available for help and/or advice (and happy to give it). If you like, I can share my love of the area and provide some useful tips about what you might like to do and see, restaurants, local services, wineries, and some of the great walks and activities nearby. We will meet and greet you at The Den, settle you in and give you some tips plus orient you so your visit can get off to a flying start. Languages: My wife Beng is Malaysian Chinese and speaks Hokkien and a little Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysian. I have a smattering of French

Hi Andrea,. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for your 5 star review. We have never had anyone suggest storage could be a problem before, given the large wardrobes, multiple shelves and full kitchen cabinetry. However, if you come back with...More

About the neighbourhood
The back of the apartment is on the Battery Point boundary, abutting Albuera Street Primary school, so expect a bit of noise from the kids at play times on weekdays during school terms (all that laughing and running around!), but very reduced noise on weekends, nights and holidays compared to other apartments surrounded on all sides by residents, roads and/or and garages.

Byron St is the continuation of Molle St that goes through the top of the CBD, and the apartment is 200 metres from Sandy Bay Road. It is central to all that Sandy Bay, Battery Point, Hobart City and much of what South and West Hobart have to offer:

• Sandy Bay restaurants, shopping precinct and supermarkets are a short 5 minutes’ walk away. Another 5 minutes takes you to Wrest Point Casino with multiple bars an...
Getting around
There is parking for a car and a bus stop directly outside the building. Many, many attractions are in easy walking distance. Uber is also in Hobart.

There is no need for a car at all, especially for short visits, but always a nice-to-have for longer trips. The main thoroughfares through town are at the top and bottom of the street, so easy to find your way out and about, if you are driving. For example there are only 2 turns to take you the top of the often snow-capped Mount Wellington ('Kunanyi') for spectacular and panoramic views over the south of Tasmania, including Bruny Island.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Hobart: 20.0 km
If you are driving from the airport then take the main road through town heading south (Davey Street). Turn left at Molle St, when you are almost through the CBD, and drive about 500 metres down the hill, and look for the small red-brick set of flats on the left a few doors down from Fitzroy street (which is on the right). Turn into the driveway and look for the drive-in garage with the number '6' on it, directly above the entrance. The flat is on the first floor ( that is, one up from the ground floor) and is all the way to the back (there are only 3 flats on each floor). Look for the red door!

If you are taking the airport bus, it will drive down Sandy Bay Road. Ask to be let out at 'Blue Hills Motel'. Walk on in the same direction for 100 metres and Byron St is on t...
