19 Blue is a lovely, homely cottage which our guests love to return to again and again. Many describe it as a "peaceful haven" BUT it is so conveniently situated in the lovely beachside suburb of Blackmans Bay! Take advantage of our very affordable seasonal rates!
19 Blue is a self - contained holiday cottage just 15 minutes drive from Hobart.
It is a homely, welcoming one bedroom cottage with a queen sized bed. It is very thoughtfully equipped to make you feel at home. Everyone comments and appreciates the little, heartfelt extras!
Guests are welcome to pick fruit or vegetables, in season, from our organic garden which is overlooked by 19 Blue.
Nearby Blackmans Bay beach has two great restaurants and cliff top walks.
There is a shopping centre close at hand for your supplies and medical needs.
19 Blue makes a great base to explore Southern Tasmania. Hobart and Mona are close and Port Arthur an hour and a half's drive away. The Huon,Channel and Bruny Island are all within easy driving distance too.
Past guests comment on the welcoming and cosy feeling of our cottage; from the warm welcome of your hosts, Judith and Chris, to the country breakfast supplies - 19 Blue is waiting for you!
19 Blue is entirely self-contained so you don't need to meet us at all if you don't want to - though we love to at least welcome you and say "goodbye" You are welcome to pick vegetables and herbs from our garden and to come down and visit The Alices (our Barnevelder chooks). We love inviting you down for a cuppa or glass of something but totally respect your needs for privacy so we don't knock on your door unless we really need to!
We have over twelve years in the tourism industry running our iconic historical plays and, more recently 19 Blue. So, we know a bit about what there is to see and do around here. We also supply an information folder in the cottage which gives you some ideas about day itineraries. We are always happy to share our experience and to give advice. We are just down at the bottom of the garden!
19 Blue is just so convenient for just about anywhere down here in the south of Tasmania. Port Arthur is an hour or two away as is the Air Walk. The ferry for Bruny Island is twenty minutes away and Hobart city with all its attractions just fifteen minutes. 19 Blue could not be more convenient and yet it is peaceful and away from the roar of the traffic. It is almost a little bit of country in the suburbs!
I am middle aged but feel more like a teenager! I am passionate about gardening, music, drama, family, friends and LIFE.
I work in my own business with my lovely husband Chris running a convict drama in Hobart, called Louisa's Walk. I love what I do and am very proud of what we have created.
I love people, Outback Queensland, anywhere in Greece and fave place of all? Tasmania!! As a guest I am considerate and honest appreciative and enthusiastic. As a host I am warm friendly and welcoming. I believe in "do as you would be done by"
