About the property

The apartment

As you walk through the red door you are immediately drawn to the bedrooms with their luxurious linen and Tasmanian made Waverley woollen throws. Spectacular river views can be seen from the main bedroom and to your left the single bedroom has a desk for a quiet moment of study, reading or relaxing.

Go down the spiral stairs to the light and airy living area featuring lounge, dining ta-ble and chairs, TV/DVD and stereo. Step on to the deck with its outdoor furniture and take in the views beyond of the Derwent River and Mount Wellington.

Off the lounge is a well appointed kitchen, with espresso machine, microwave and full size fridge and oven. The bathroom with its shower and toilet features front load-ing washing machine and dryer.

The decor is contemporary with details of Tasmanian art, craft and design. Heating in all rooms makes this a cosy place in winter. The deck allows for al fresco dining in summer as you watch the ever-changing activity on the river.

The location

Take advantage of the apartment's fantastic location and close proximity to Hobart's vibrant waterfront district and Salamanca Place. Take a 5 minute walk to the world renowned Salamanca Market (Saturdays) or an easy stroll to the shopping districts of the city, waterfront or Sandy Bay via Billy Goat Lane.

Explore historic Battery Point on foot to discover convict buildings, colonial architecture both modest and grand, parks and gardens, Arthur Circus

The experience

Ex restaurateurs, your hosts can provide you with expert local knowledge, from sourcing wonderful Tasmanian produce to cook in the apartment to recommendations on a variety of dining experiences all within a ten minute walk of your apartment.

Cruise the river Derwent and the D'Entreacasteaux Channel to Peppermint Bay, take a tour of the Cascade Brewery, hop on the big red bus, take a thrilling ride on a jet boat or just relax in your apartment with a glass of Tasmanian wine.

A well-appointed apartment, but a bit too cramped for three.

  • 3 of 5

Luckily we left our cat at home, because there’s not room to swing a cat in this apartment. Possibly perfect for two people, but too small for three. There was so little room in the main bedroom that I had to leave my suitcase in the foyer, where I got dressed each day.

The upstairs bedrooms, the downstairs bathroom and a tiny spiral staircase in between made night time trips to the bathroom perilous. We also found it difficult to shower. The cubicle was so small it was not easy to turn around without banging into the the glass sides.

On the plus side, the beds were comfortable, and the unit was well appointed.

Perfect location, excellent facilities

We spent a week over New Year at this property and can’t recommend it highly enough. Comfortable beds in both rooms, clothes washing facilities, excellent shower, fully equipped kitchen and lots of information provided on local attractions and restaurants. if we come back to wonderful Hobart again, this property will be at the top of our list.

Enjoyable stay, great location !

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location, being a few minutes stroll into battery point via Sandy Bay Road or Kelly Street steps. Also, there are the Billy Goat Steps at the other end of the street, a neat shortcut taking you towards Sandy Bay shops. The apartment is quiet at night. We were able to sleep with the windows open and wake up to birdsong (coming from Sydney where one normally wakes to the music from people's endless parties, it made a wonderful change!). Plenty of towels are supplied and there is a washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is well-supplied with crockery, etc. for a short stay. Plenty of up-to-date information is provided about the restaurants/cafes of Battery Point and various attractions around Hobart.

Well located close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend at Red Door Apartment in Battery Point. Fantastically located within easy walk to Hobart central, Salamanca markets, harbour and Sandy Point. Only think that could have been clearer is the size of the apartment is smaller than expected from photos, plus bedrooms on entry level and remaining living and bathroom down the spiral staircase. Took a while to get used to the staircase, not for people with mobility issues. Views front and back brilliant, was great to be able to sit on deck with a glass of wine each night and look at the casino as the sun set.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Glenda. We appreciate the time it takes to write thoughtful comments such as yours. Yes, the apartment is what we fondly call 'New York style' - compact yet very functional. We are really pleased you liked the fantastic location and your relaxing time (and glass of wine) on the deck at sun set. Sounds like our kind of holiday. Kind regards, Kathryn and Robin

very cute apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

nd loads of great places to eat. It was also nice and quiet at night, which we always appreciate. The steep internal spiral staircase was not an issue for my daughter and I, especially as the suitcases stay upstairs in the bedrooms (this is the entry level).
