The fact that this is our 3rd stay at the Garden Apartment Hobart speaks volumes to the quality and care of the accommodation offered by Tom and Pam. Their primary goal is to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The bed is outstanding and we both slept great each night.

Melbourne, November 2013

Just about 7km from the centre of town with carport for off-street parking… 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 remarkable.

San Fransisco USA, August 2103

Simply perfect! Nicest hosts, attentive, caring, very easy to communicate with. The apartment was very clean, with everything we needed and a few “extras” that we did not expect. Can’t think of a better place for a couple to spend a week in Hobart.

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.

Adelaide, Australia, March 2016

I loved The Gardens Apartment. It’s ideal for 1 or 2 adults, clean, modern, and cleverly compact in its design. Tom & Pam manage the apartment very efficiently, are welcoming yet respect their guests’ privacy. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Perth W.A., Australia, January 2015

I’ve stayed in dozens of Airbnbs around the world and this has been one of my best experiences in terms of comfort, convenience, and incredibly clean space… the Wifi works very well, heater is warm for cooler nights and a nice ceiling fan keeps you cool when it is a bit hot outside.

Mark O
Cambridge, March 2017

I have nothing but praise for Tom & Pam and “The Gardens Apartment”. The apartment is gorgeous, compact, clean and convenient. I loved being able to wake up in the upstairs room and look out to the river and the trees and see the weather before I ventured out for the day. The bed was extremely comfortable as was the downstairs sitting room. I was totally spoilt.

The Gardens Apartment is an absolute joy. Overlooking a beautiful garden, with glimpses of the water beyond, the apartment is the perfect place to enjoy Hobart and the surrounding areas.

I had a wonderful, relaxing few days in this very special part of the world. Tom and Pam have a fantastic apartment on their property. It’s immaculate, compact and cosy.
