Knopwood Hill Retreat is a stunning 60 acre property located 15 minutes drive from Hobart. The house is 75% glass with panoramic views of the Derwent River and Mount Wellington.
Many guests describe it as "a farm-stay but in the city" and that it feels like a home not an empty hotel.
All rooms have individually controlled air conditioning, heating, and 100mbps Internet.
You will have exclusive access to the property. Some of the older references are from when this was a room listing.
The kitchen tends to lure guests who are wonderful cooks. Over time the kitchen pantry has gradually morphed into a lending library of herbs, spices, and sauces from every possible cuisine.
I have done a lot of travel myself and noticed that holiday rentals are starting to all feel identical. You know the ones, same generic Ikea furniture, less kitchen cutlery than a student house, and an overall lack of "personality". This property is actually a home so has everything you would expect to have in your own house along with all those little comforts that make it not feel like a hotel.
Knopwood Hill Retreat has a lovely outdoor BBQ area, fire pit, and
multiple entertaining areas inside the property.
Only 15 minutes drive from Hobart and 10 minutes drive from Hobart Airport. Fresh seafood can be purchased directly from a seafood exporter in the same street. Supermarkets, restaurants, and delis are within an easy 5 minute drive.
The property adjoins a 200 acre park covered in protected Eucalyptus Risdonii trees, wallabies, echidnas, potteroos, masked owls, eagles, possums, red robins, blue wrens, and parrots. The property attracts a huge variety of flora and fauna.
There is no public transport to Knopwood Hill so you would need your own transport or a taxi. Once here you can go on walks around the surrounding bushland, or relax on one of the many patios and balconies. It is extremely quiet here with no traffic noise or noisy neighbours.
The main living area has a fireplace and air-conditioner. The bedrooms and bathrooms have individually controlled air-conditioning and heating so all guests can have their ideal room temperature.
The kitchen is completely fitted out and suitable for entertaining large groups with all pans, pots, crockery, cutlery, glassware, and accessories. Cereal, toast, and orange juice is provided. All bedding, towels, and bathroom supplies are included.
The property is connected via high speed fibre Internet with 100mb download and 40mb upload. All rooms have access to the Internet via WiFi. The living room has a 50 inch TV with Netflix.
Pets do live on the property but are not inside the house.
You will get exclusive access to the entire property. I will meet you on arrival and show you around the house then leave you to enjoy your stay. I am only a phone call away if you need anything at all.

I live around 10 minutes away so you have complete privacy. You can still get assistance from me when needed and I am always happy to provide travel tips. At one point this was a shared listing which you can see in some of the older references.

- Smoking outside only.

I am one of the original AirBnB hosts in Hobart. In the past few years I have hosted over 300 guests and had a fantastic experience each time. I am a fifth generation Tasmanian so have plenty of information about the secret "locals only" things to do when you are in Tasmania.
