Tassie’s top 5 Airbnbs

Tasmania does Airbnbs a little differently. Firstly, many stays boast perfect – or very nearly perfect – ratings. Secondly, there doesn’t appear to be any clear correlation between rating and price, meaning that our beautiful Tasmania might just be the perfect place to live the high life on a budget – if you know where to stay.

Blythe River Boathouse – Luxury Waterfront Shack
4.99 stars
$140.14 per night

Who said that luxury has to cost an arm and a leg? Let the Blythe River Boathouse dissolve away stress as you enjoy the scenic waterfront view while relaxing on the little sun deck. If you’re in a cosier mood, enjoy the views through the large windows, or snuggle up on the couch to watch a movie. If you’re feeling adventurous you can go fishing or take the little boat out for a spin, all without leaving the property.

Little Crabtree
5.0 stars
$220 per night

Described as a “modern twist in country Tasmania”, and a “unique take on simplicity”, this space was built to impress.

This small home is located just 35 minutes from Hobart but feels as though it could be a million miles away from any civilisation. You’ll share the property and its private creek with the occasional platypus, countless pademelons and cheeky quolls. While the property does have wifi, it’s doesn’t have a TV or other devices, making it the perfect place to embrace the outdoors and make the most of the nearby bush trails.
