About this listing

Looking for a home away from home? A place to rest and rejuvenate that is close to the city (10 minutes to the CBD) but surrounded by nature, her silence and peaceful sounds?

The space

This unique and charming light filled room with its own private entrance, en-suite bathroom, and custom designed, fully functioning kitchen is nestled at the foot of the majestic Kunanyi (Mount Wellington) and offers an experience of everything that is nourishing and beautiful about Tasmania.

The water views of the river Derwent from the comfort of your warm and cozy queen sized bed and views of the looming mountain above are second to none, with sunrises worth setting an alarm for.

The land is abundant with wildlife and features vast organic food and flower gardens.

All of the water (drinking and bathing) on the property, is sourced from a sparkling mountain stream that boarders the property and is some of the cleanest water in the world.

Guest access

Organic herbal teas grown and prepared on the land and organic fair-trade coffee is provided. There is a TV/DVD for those rainy afternoons and a small library, so you can take a book, find a spot in the garden amongst the flowers, chooks and berries and get lost in a story, or the simple beauty of this magical place.

Other things to note

The bathroom and toilet are separated from the main room by a semi open stone curved wall, as can be seen in the photo's. Please note that the room is part of a peaceful and nurturing family friendly home, all are welcome but we would prefer if there is no smoking on the property.

We have a dog named Lulu, who is a very loving golden retriever, and we have bee hives on the property during most of the year.

We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise.

Mountain Nest is a lovely place. The room is gorgeous and comfortable with everything we needed. The location is beautiful, surrounded by nature, and Mieke was very welcoming and attentive of everything. Lulu (the dog) is soooo cute and friendly, she is definitely a plus! It was a great holiday!

Mieke's place was truly a magical mountain nest!! The place was surrounded by wildlife and it was both peaceful and cosy. We did face some electricity issues during our stay where the heaters and kitchen light suddenly shut off, but Mieke was very quick to help us solve the problem (: Her house is very well decorated and we really loved the layout. Moreover, you can view the sunrise from the place when you wake up so that's definitely a plus!

Mieke is a really friendly host. Good communication, and she was there to show us the room and really made us feel welcomed. The room was simply gorgeous. Very peaceful place, lots of wildlife around, Mt. Wellington just behind and it is dark enough at night for stargazing! One of the best experience I've ever had on Airbnb!

What a great place to stay! Hidden at the end of a road, spectacular view and heaps of animals around. Absolutely loved it there! Thank you Mieke for a beautiful stay.

Lovely place, just like the pics, in a secluded Hobart area, but still 10-15 min to the CBD, lots of natural wildlife, and bushwalkings near by. Beautiful views, very clean place and comfortable.. Real value for money I would recommend to any couple, very private, and your host is a lovely lady that is very helpful and communicative

This was the perfect place to stay in Hobart. You get the best of both worlds by being a 10min drive to the city centre, but being able to retreat to this beautiful scenic home. We loved our stay at Mieke's place and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Hi, I have a great love for nature and her ever changing forms. You will often find me working or pottering around in the gardens, or in my kitchen preserving and processing the gifts of the land. I am blessed to live in such a pristine environment and I look forward to share the peace and beauty of this place with you.
