One Of Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes Built in the 1890s and overlooking the Hobart CBD and Derwent River, Kinvara House is an example of a superbly tasteful, modern restoration. Surrounded by pretty gardens, the stately fully self-contained home has four bedrooms and sleeps up to ten in grand comfort. A cute table setting on a private sundeck is the perfect spot to devour your provided gourmet breakfast provisions, or of course the bustling docks and café scene of Salamanca Place are only a short stroll away.

From the polished floorboards to the deep claw-foot bath to the fascinating artworks adorning the walls, Kinvara House is one of those rare places in which the photographs do not do the experience justice. A perfectly classy place from which to explore the historic port capital.

Details // Forest Rd, West Hobart, Tas. From $330 per night., (03) 6278 8232.
