Tutor's Apartment: a 2 bedroom apartment designed by one of Australia's leading architects for a memorable holiday experience. The focal point is Monty's Old School House, a building with an intriguing history.

Free wifi and parking. Walking distance to Salamanca. See our other listings under Old Bishops Quarters.


Splendid luxury at the bottom of the world! A special hide-away with the feel of a luxury, boutique hotel, without the hotel and much more space.

Stay in a spacious, beautifully appointed, self-contained two bedroom apartment adjoining the Monty's Old School House in one of Australia’s most historic houses, formerly home to each Bishop of Tasmania for over 160 years until 2003. Our family home was built in the 1830s and is set in about an acre of gardens on one of Hobart’s most attractive tree-lined streets on the edge of Battery Point - just at the end of our street. And unlike Battery Point/other central areas, we have free parking outside!

Availability should always be up to date as it is sync'd with our website booking system (have a look at 3D tour there). For prices, click on booking with your dates and up comes the quote. Free wifi, linen/towels and parking; accommodation only. Kitchenette is not equipped for cooking but there is a BBQ.

The Tutor's Apartment is a spacious 75 square metre apartment. It comprises:
- a large master bedroom (double or can be two single beds on request) with a dressing area which is ideal for a cot or a child on a trundle bed
- a 'dormitory bedroom' with two bunk beds (top bunk folds away) or available as a compact double on request
- a spacious shower room and
- a large lounge room with kitchenette
- extra cot or trundle bed on request

It has very pleasant views towards the Derwent River from the lounge room and glimpses of Mount Wellington.

Access is through an attractive courtyard from a dedicated off-street car park which is right outside your door.

Our guests have already decided that this is a great place to stay in Hobart. The apartment has been fitted out to the highest possible standard. Heat is solar powered from a large scale solar array in the old orchard, supplemented by gas. There is air conditioning in the lounge. And there's a hair dryer!

Free wifi, cinema TV, iPad and Sonos hifi system with Pandora unlimited music on demand. The custom made mini-kitchenette is equipped with new appliances - 6 setting Fisher & Paykel single drawer dishwasher, bar fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee plunger (no cooking facilities). High quality king sized bed in the master bedroom and two single beds in the bunk room (or double on request).

Not a lot has changed in the main house over the years, other than a major restoration project funded by the National Trust in the 1990s and now our efforts - especially heating! The house was designed in stages by two of Australia's most renowned architects in the 19th century, Henry Hunter and George Fagg. There are many stories about past owners, residents and guests including Field Marshall Montgomery of WW2 fame, Lady Gowrie, every Anglican Bishop of Tasmania from mid-19th century to early 21st century, endless Governor-Generals, the first Attorney General of Tasmania, a good selection of Archbishops of Canterbury and York, John Wordsworth (not the poet but the Bishop of Salisbury and grand nephew of the poet) and so on.

Bookings starting on a Thursday evening will usually only work for us if it includes the weekend as Friday is a very popular start date for weekend bookings. Between November and April, weekend bookings will be charged at the rate for 4 guests. No parties. Early check-in is often possible by prior arrangement.

Come and enjoy 21st century Hobart mixed with the 19th century!

Here is an extract about Monty's Old School House from 'A Field Marshall in the Family' (Brian Montgomery):

"Our Unusual Parents: Tasmania Days

Meanwhile at Hobart, with her usual organising ability, Mother had arranged for tutors to come from England and take over the whole job of teaching the children, who were rapidly growing up. The arrival of these tutors gave her more freedom to devote her attention to the many and varied activities of a Colonial bishop's wife. Fortunately Bishopscourt, their home in Hobart, was a large rambling building with a big garden, well suited to her purpose. She had an additional room built, outside the house, which served as a school where not only her own children were taught, but also those of certain close friends in or near Hobart. One of the boys who came was Andrew Holden, the son of Doctor Holden who was father's closest friend in Tasmania. Much later, Andrew married my elder sister Una.

The boys of the school had the charge of the schoolroom, taking their turn weekly to keep it clean, light the fire, chop the wood and generally maintain it. Here too they got their own evening meal, and for this purpose the boy in charge for the week was given half a crown to spend on 'extras' over and above what the cook provided.

One boy would spend the whole sum on cake or biscuits, whilst another bought tinned salmon and persuaded the cook to make it up into fish cakes. The future Field-Marshal, on one occasion when his turn came round, discovered, with due regard for economy, some cheap eggs. He announced, to the great amusement of his parents but the dismay of his fellows, that he was providing `reduced eggs' ! Although all the children had to submit to Mother's routine and sense of order it should not be thought they were unhappy or discontented in Tasmania. On the contrary they loved it all, especially the constant outdoor life, the picnics, riding, fishing and the like."

Accesso ospiti

Access to your private apartment is through an attractive courtyard from a dedicated off-street car park which is right outside your door.

Interazione con gli ospiti

We are usually around and are here to help as much or as little as you would like. Some guests hardly ever see us as they are busy out and about. Some like to stop and have a chat when we see each other in the garden.

Please note that school run hours (8.30-9.30) and (2.30-4) are often tricky for us if you need to find us!

Altre cose da evidenziare

Earlier check-in times can sometimes be arranged but even then cannot be guaranteed due to events out of our control - children usually!

If you're looking for great accomodation in a central location, look no further! My partner and I stayed in the Bishop's Quarters for a long weekend and it was completely divine. Clean, comfortable, modern and warm - we can't fault it. We will definitely be back!

The Tutor house is a perfect setup with luscious towels, a very comfy bed in a gorgeously designed building. Very convenient to Hobart and Salamanca precinct and a short stroll away from Hobart's best coffee at Sash on Sandy Bay Road. Rebecca is a fabulous host. We will definitely go again.

Just the best place ever. Rebecca was helpful, friendly and quick to respond when we locked ourselves out one day. The views are beautiful, the location ideal for a great walk to Salamanca, and the place is modern and delightful. Highly recommend.

Great location, top quality appliances and designer layout. We could see that Rebecca has refurbished the space with great details, designer ideas and modern technology. Polished concrete floor with floor heating and separate control in each room, living room iPad controlled stereo, nice bathroom and comfortable bed. There is absolutely nothing we could pick on and believe me we are picky. Thanks again for the great experience.

I am Australian and have lived in the UK and Japan. My husband, Dermot, grew up in Ireland and has lived in the UK and Australia. We love meeting people, having a laugh, fresh air, walking and cycling, beautiful scenery and great food and wine --- Tasmania! We are both involved in running our Airbnb apartments, having expanded since our initial listing in 2012.

My career has been in healthcare (mainly midwifery) and my husband's in finance. We are keen travellers, especially if it involves sailing. We have four school age children so we are also good at keeping ourselves to ourselves, as appropriate.

We have taken on the challenge of looking after this 19th century house, the Anglican Bishop's residence from the 1840s till recently, and spend a lot of time on it. I am particularly fond of searching for interesting pieces of forgotten furniture, making/growing things and trying to be creative in kitchen. Dermot is particularly mad about his growing solar thermal project in the orchard!

We were drawn to Airbnb as we get to know a little about our house guests and vice versa. Also, we find that it connects us with people who are considerate and pleasant which is important!
