Clarissa’s place was just what we needed. We were looking for a quiet place to recover after a busy weekend attending a wedding. The cabin was cosy, spotlessly clean and situated in a very quiet area, just what we required!

I loved the dog, Diesel and this welcoming nature! We were given a dozen of farm eggs and had a tour around the farm. It is really country living but close enough to Hobart. We had a four wheel drive which made it real easy to get to the place.

Clarissa and Bruce are very friendly. We were out and about all day, so barely aaw them. Diesel is a treat and kept our 8 year old very busy playing ball. The unit was a surprise – clean, well equipped and surprisingly spacious. The beds were comfy and the linen clean and fresh. I highly recommend this to families and hope to return ourselves in the hopefully not too distant future.

Thank you Clarissa, Bruce & family for a delightful stay at your farm. My husband, daughter, son in law & their 3 children were absolutely thrilled with the friendly dogs, horse, chickens, pigs & sheep that we were able to interact with. The accommodation was very comfortable & we were made feel very welcomed. I would highly recommend staying here & it was a highlight of our time in Tasmania. Many thanks again.

We had a lovely stay at Clarissa’s place in Mt Rumney. The setting is extremely picturesque and not too far from Hobart. Six of us managed to fit in the Cabin comfortably with everything that we needed. Clarissa was more than helpful with everything for us, and the fresh farm eggs from her chickens were beautiful. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you are looking for somewhere in a country setting but not too far from Hobart.

Clarissa & Bruce were Fantastic. We had loads of fun at the place. Everything is there. Just what you need when you are away from home. Thanks very much and we can gladly say, when we go Hobart next, it will be Mt Rumney we will be calling home 🙂

We had a 2 night stay in the cabin, the views on the way up to the property were spectacular and we saw plenty of local wildlife. Cabin was clean, simple but well equipped. Clarissa was easy to communicate with and we wished we had had more time to stay in this area. Hobart just a short drive away.

Beautiful location and very friendly hosts. It was only a short 15 minute drive to the city and the cabin contained all necessary amenities and facilities. Would happily recommend this place to other travelers looking for easy and simple accommodation.

We had a lovely time at Clarissa’s place. The cabin was cosy and well equipped. Very good value for money with the bonus of wildlife at dusk. It is in a lovely rural location, but only a short drive to the Hobart CBD. We would definitely go back.

A great place to base yourself for exploring Hobart and surrounds. The cabin was clean and comfortable and suited our family of 5 well. The kids loved throwing the ball for diesel. Although we didnt meet, Clarissa was great with communication, directions and just a phone call away if we needed anything. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you.

We enjoyed staying here especially the bushwalk up the hill was amazing. The views were breath taking.

There was never a problem that Clarissa couldn’t handle. We loved the peace and quiet (and darkness) of the cabin. The beds were great and the cabin was clean. What more could a mainlander ask for? There was lots of tourist info documents in the cabin too. We loved Diesel who chases a ball far harder than our dog ever did. Bring a hardish ball and a few smacko’s for diesel and he’ll love you forever. WiFi worked fine. TV reception was horrid most of the time but Clarissa warned us about the TV reception so we bought lots of DVD’s with us, so no problems for us. Would we go back? Yes….had a great time in Tassie

Comfortable with everything you need. Kids loved Diesel! We made a last minute booking and Clarissa was very accommodating.

The drive up the hill to Clarissa’s place was a bit of a shock, but well worth it. Great views clean and tidy cabin that had everything we needed. It’s so quite up in the hills that a peaceful nights sleep is not a problem. All within a 10 min drive of Hobart. The kids had a great time throwing the ball for the dog and feeding the chickens. I can’t say it’s a pretty farm but a great place to stay all the same.
Sandra Elliott

 

The kids loved it! This cosy home away from home is the perfect place for a Hobart get away, with nature on the doorstep. Be sure to follow Clarissa’s directions as Siri will have hiking from the other side of Mt Rumney. Plans for our next get away have already begun.

We had a great stay in Mount Rumney. Modern, clean and very well equipped cabin. Host was very welcoming upon arrival and helpful throughout. They have a lovely dog who likes to play with tennis ball for all dog lovers. I highly recommend this airbnb. Would definitely rent this unit in the future. Thank you guys!!

It’s an amazing place! Bruce was welcoming when we arrived. We instantly settle down and was looking forward to explore Tassie. They are adding more cabins so do stay tuned and book when they are ready!

Fantastic! A cozy and clean place for our 1 night stay. The dog was so helpful and tried to take us to the house. Everything we need in here. Thank you.

Amazing view with animals, a bit difficult to reach at night, will be safer to travel with day light. The dog Diesel is so smart

We had a pleasant stay at Mount Rumney. The cabin is well-equipped and had the basics we needed for a comfortable stay. A quiet and cozy place away from the city. Great value and highly recommended! Thank you.

We loved the cabin. The views were spectacular. Much nicer than staying in a noisy cbd but still nice and close to everything. The kids loved waking up and playing fetch with the dog. Would recommended it to everyone.

Clarissa is very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment. It is so close to Hobart Airport!
Peony So

 

It is a fantastic farm stay located within less than30min from Hobart City Centre. The host – Clarissa was most helpful and responsive to our queries before we arrived. It really helped for our first visit to Hobart. The instruction to the place was very comprehensive and easily understood. We reached the place without any trouble at all. We were welcome warmly by Diesel – the house’s dog. The place was very clean, full equipped and in great condition. It is really a great place to stay and visit Hobart. We have no hesitation to recommend it to any families to book this place.
