Boutique Accommodation


Hobart Hideaway Pods offers relaxed and convenient accommodation within 20 minutes drive of Hobart, Tasmania. Our accommodation consists of two individual ‘Pods’, named The Vanilla Pod and The Pea Pod. The pods were created with a focus on low impact eco friendly design. We look forward to hosting you at Hobart Hideaway Pods during your Tasmanian visit.

Eco Friendly


We strive to incorporate as many environmentally conscious decisions into our pods as we can. These include: reed bed absorption trenches for onsite processing of grey water, composting toilets (the luxurious kind!) for water saving, solar passive design to reduce electricity use, self-sufficient water supply, VOC free paints and sustainably sourced building materials.

With all this in mind the pods are beautiful spaces for people to enjoy!

Here at Hobart Hideaway Pods, we love hearing feedback from our guests. This is what some previous visitors have said about us.
  • "I stayed here as part of a week long trip up the east coast of Tasmania. We couldn't fault our relaxing stay in Kingston in the 'Pod'. Clare was extremely welcoming and informed as she gave us a wonderful introduction to the property and the surrounding area. The pod itself is beautifully designed to accentuate it's environment and highlights the spectacular views. The pod is very well equipped and has been very tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend this property".

  • "Clare made us feel very welcome on arrival, showed us where everything was and how everything worked in her studio pod. She has clearly put a huge amount of thought into what travellers may need for their stay, including a comprehensive folder on restaurants, tourist attractions, things to do etc. We found this very useful. There are even binoculars to look at the lovely aspect. Our pod was brand new, extremely clean, nicely warm and perfectly laid out to enjoy the country view and featured an composting toilet, which is a brilliant idea. There should be more eco-conscious properties like this".

  • "We were the first to stay at Hobart Hideaway Pods and it couldn't have been more pleasant. The view is outstanding and the pod itself is more than comfortable. We loved every minute. Our host Clare was very welcoming and accommodating, she gave us a lovely introduction to the property and the town. The guestbook information is also very useful".

  • "We absolutely loved staying at the Pea Pod! It is just as the name says...cosy yet spacious for two people, warm, homely and fitted out with everything you could need. The quiet country setting was so relaxing and there was a fabulous view. There was nothing more we could have wished for. The location was also great...just a short drive into Hobart and we also visited Bruny Island and the Tahune Airwalk from here. We would definitely recommend Hobart Hideaway to others!"

  • "We loved staying in The Vanilla Pod. The views were beautiful - such a unique experience. It was so relaxing with the fresh air and sunshine. Loved the styling inside that had a creative feel with the choice of colour palate but also very slick and clean lined. The owners were friendly and down to earth and were there to answer any questions if needed. Woke up to watch the changing colours of the sunrise. The pods were a quick drive to Mount Wellington and easy access to Hobart. We highly recommend a visit to the Pods"

  • "Hobart Hideaway Pods were fabulous. So much thought had gone into every detail...from interior design to practical requirements, like the hooks next to the door, or the wee shelf above the bed. Clare provided a continental breakfast for us so that we didn't have to worry about shopping, there is also a fully stocked bar fridge and plenty of reading material. The view is something else, and the sky at night is outstanding. Clare and her husband Jimmy were both wonderful, friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely recommend to friends & can't wait to stay again!"

  • "We loved the pea pod, it was a beautifully thought out space and the views and surroundings were lovely! Clare is such a helpful host and made terrific recommendations to me about places to visit and eat etc. I would highly recommend this listing if you're after some peace and serenity, absolutely loved it!"

  • "Hobart Hideaway Pods were a perfect place for a secluded Hobart getaway! Our pod was beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean and cheerful. Even the composting toilet was nice to use!! Clare is a warm and welcoming but not at all intrusive host. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one night but will definitely recommend the Pods to our friends and family"
