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.

Such a good spot if you are looking to stay in Hobart! Stayed here with a girlfriend, it is the perfect distance from the city but still are able to have peace and quiet. Was very clean and tidy and access was easy. If you are staying in Hobart for a few days you should definitely try this space we loved it. Wish we stayed here more.

The mountain nest is definitely a must if you want something out of the city & with a view. Waking up to such beautiful scenery and going to sleep to the city night lights were the highlights of the stay! Thanks Mieke for the hospitality! Will definitely come back again if we are back in tasmania :)

Mieke was a wonderful and kind host! She was very responsive and accommodating of our check-in time after sunset. She gave us fantastic recommendations for restaurants, hiking and exploring around her home, hobart and activities we had in mind. Her property was the perfect naturescape and quiet hub close to Hobart. We loved everything about our stay and hope to stay longer in the future! Give Lulu lots of belly scratches and keep an eye out for the wonderful wildlife at dawn and dusk!

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!

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.
