You’ll have the house to yourself.


Omaroo House is an 1850’s renovated cottage. It combines the best of modern convenience with historic charm, and will make your stay in Hobart a memorable one. This property has just had an amazing renovation & extension to the rear of the property not noticeable from the front.
Omaroo House is located on the edge of the CBD within the Heritage precinct of Hobart’s top rated suburb West Hobart and is only a 5-10 walk to the city, Salamanca and Constitution Dock.

The space

Entry to the cottage is via the original sitting/lounge room with a classic leather lounge suite and a gas heater to keep you cosy and warm in winter. To add to your enjoyment there are many books on the bookshelf and a variety of board games in the chest. Next to this room is the original bedroom still retaining the original 1850’s timber ceiling and a bed warmer from that period as a decoration on the wall. There is a Queen size bed and an old style dresser in keeping with the original cottage.
From the sitting/lounge room via the original 1850’s back door, you go from old to new, where the rest of the property has just been renovated and extended. Your eyes will be immediately taken to the lovely open lounge, dining and kitchen area with stunning panoramic views of the Derwent River and hills. You will see yachts racing a couple of days of the week and cruise ships regularly in the warmer months. Both the dining and lounge areas have these magnificent views set off by a beautiful timber ceiling.
The new kitchen is spacious, fully equipped with a Microwave, Gas Cook Top and dishwasher and caters to all needs. The dining table seats six and is perfectly positioned to maximise the views.
From the lounge/dining area you walk onto the deck where you literally have no choice but to just relax, read a book or have a drink & enjoy the views. There is a BBQ and as the deck is covered it can be used all year round.

Two bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third bedroom has a single bed and a rollout trundle that comes to the same height as the single bed, so it can be two single beds or combined it is another queen sized bed.
Omaroo House is child friendly having a portacot, high chair and a separate bath.

The lovely timber side door takes you out to a lovely large garden, again with panoramic views of the Derwent River and plenty of space for kids (or adults) to play. The outdoor table and chairs are another dining option or picnic on the lawn, reading a book or having a wine.
There is a garage that fits a low to mid height vehicle and there is some unlimited on street parking in front of the property and neighbouring places. Please note: Some on street car spaces do have a 2 hour limit.
