“A special place to stay”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Upon opening the front door I knew this apartment was well appointed with quality furnishings and accessories. The apartment offers a well equipped kitchen including a special touch of local products that Tom & Pam have supplied to make your stay a memorable one. Quality linen and apparel compliments the apartment. After the perfect night's sleep the proximity of the location makes it easy to access all the sites Hobart has to offer. Added to this Tom's vast knowledge of the region is priceless. Would recommend The Garden Apartments to couples of any age to experience the ultimate home away from home experience.

“all the comforts of home... and the little extras!”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a marvellous space Tom and Pam have created, thank you for the fresh fruits and other little treats.
The stunning gardens along with the comfort and quaintness of this gorgeous chalet style apartment made this an outstanding memory for us.
Hobart is just 10 minutes up the road and exploring of the southern beaches, Huon trail and historical sites is easily accessible.
A trip to the local providores (Lipscombe Larder) to stock up on gourmet treats is a must.
We will return for sure.

Great location, It was our base for 5 nights while we explored Hobart and It's surrounds on motor bike.
A very warm welcome from Tom, when we arrived. We opened up the front door, to a very clean and modern apartment with alot of little extras. (The bed was very comfortable) and the washing machine with powder was a bonus. A big thank you Tom, for letting us park our motorbike under cover.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We enjoyed a 4 night stay in March in this quality apartment. The well appointed kitchen and living-room, Tom and Pam's and the goodies in the pantry, made us feel very welcome. We were close to all that Hobart has to offer and appreciated the welcoming atmosphere of the apartment. Johanna and Robert

“Expect the Unexpected!!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Hi Tom/Pam
Thank you for an excellent accommodation you prepared for us. Your generosities with those yummy goodies in the fridge (special mentioned the Cherry Jam obviously hehehe) + the stuffs from the pantry made it so special. Your location is so close to everything & made it so easy for us to travel from A to B. We'll definitely coming back & choose your apartment again.
Your apartment is highly recommended. It's Gold.

Keep smiling
Josephine & Brian

“A hassle free and affordable alternative to busy Hobart accommodation”
Reviewed March 4, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We found The Gardens Apartment through Tripadvisor and booking was simple. Following my request Tom phoned and answered all my questions and completed the booking straight away. As we were staying for 8 nights we needed space, good, safe car parking and some kitchen facilities. We had all this and more.

The kitchen was well set up so that cooking was a pleasure, with lovely crockery and cutlery and all pans and implements that you could possibly need. A washing machine in the apartment was a bonus. The jams, yoghurt, fruit etc supplied on arrival were appreciated. We had plenty of space both upstairs and down to store our luggage and good hanging space for our clothes. Comfortable leather lounge chairs made watching the large TV enjoyable.

The separate WC and bathroom were stylish with lovely towels etc supplied. The bedroom upstairs had a most comfortable queen bed with beautiful linen and plenty of space for our bags. Lighting was good and the ceiling fan was appreciated as we had a couple of unusually hot nights.

The covered carport was excellent for parking and it was an easy drive into either Sandy Bay or Kingston for groceries. Hobart was only a 10 minute drive but we found it easier to take the local bus to Hobart on the days we wanted to visit the city as we then didn't need to find car parking.

This comfortable, stylish apartment is a good base for exploring Port Arthur, the Huon Valley and further south. Tom is most helpful with advice on where to go and what to do.

“A beautiful little gem in a perfect setting”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The apartment is beautifully appointed with superior furnishings and appliances and is set amidst a well-tended shady garden. Tom and Pam are genial friendly hosts who willingly share there extensive knowledge of the area. Nice little touches like finding home-made jam and basic provisions in the fridge and lovely toiletries in the bathroom are indicative of the warm welcome that await guests. The location is peaceful and relaxing with local beaches nearby. Access to central Hobart by car or bus is easy .
The Gardens Apartment was ideal for us on our first trip to this lovely island and we definitely hope to return in the future.
