Aerie Retreat. Hot Tub, Sauna, Fire, Private, Waterfront, Nature

Adults-only Hobart holiday home in Tinderbox with hot tub
AERIE private wilderness retreat is a bespoke designer apartment with all the quality and none of the rubbish in life. Enjoy the wood fired sauna, cedar timber hot tub or just relaxing in front of the fire pit overlooking the ocean and Bruny Island. The experience staying at AERIE is all about relaxation, wilderness and water. Situated on the waterfront amongst the tree tops, AERIE overlooks Bruny Island, Storm Bay, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and the Iron Pot lighthouse at the mouth of the Derwent River.

Down a path and around 50 steps is the wilderness deck, perched amongst the trees above the cove. Here you have a large purpose built timber deck, fire pit, sauna, and timber hot tub, all heated by fire, and all built for the best wilderness health and relaxation experience you can find. The hot tub is filled fresh with water for each guest and is pre lit and ready for you to use. The sauna can be fired up as you wish, it is pre set and ready to go. From the wilderness deck there are more steps down to the private little Pilot Cove and Tinderbox Marine Reserve, this is the only way other than by boat to reach this part of the reserve. A brilliant spot for a spot of morning yoga and some of the best snorkelling in Tasmania. Sea Eagles are a regular visitor that hunt in the marine reserve, so keep an eye and an ear out.

The apartment was architect designed and purpose built. The interior, the furniture, the artwork have all been hand crafted just for this one apartment. Solid timber and leather features with some funky but easy to live with lighting that makes this the most unique and relaxing place to stay. Parking is right outside the apartment the kitchen is self contained with a microwave, stove top, sink, fridge and dishwasher. In the bathroom, the bath, shower and toilet have one of the best views you can get. No TV or internet (although sadly your phone will work) just relax on the hand made leather couches, soak up the view, watch the boats and the birds go by. A few hundred meters up the road is a free public tennis court and Piersons Point lookout with a cracking view. A further two kilometers down the road is Tinderbox beach, vineyard, boat ramp and moorings with a small BBQ shelter.

Don’t come here if you don’t want to walk up and down a few steps (quite a few!) and you don’t like spending some time relaxing. You can’t fish from this property as it’s in a Marine Reserve. No parties, other guests visiting you will need permission. We live on the property so if you have any questions or require assistance with the sauna or hot tub we can help you out. Our house is 100m away from the apartment and the wilderness deck so you have plenty of privacy, the entire wilderness deck, sauna, hot tub, and cove track are exclusively yours.

People find this an ideal place to stay after the day at MONA, spend the evening in the tub and sauna before an early morning snorkel in the marine reserve.

By car it is 30 minutes form Hobart. 10 minutes up the road is Blackmans Bay and Kingston Beach suburbs. The Blackmans Bay “Hill Street Grocer” a brilliant spot to stock up for a few days. Also at the same Bayview Shopping Centre is a baker, newsagent, sushi, hairdresser, pharmacy. Two medium / good cafes / restaurants are at Blackmans Bay with a few more at Kingston beach. Robbie Browns at Kingston Beach is our fav.

5/5 Excellent

Delightful stay
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Aerie Retreat. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub and the amazing view and privacy. Tinderbox is very isolated so this needs to be taken into consideration, however, this is also a big part of the charm. Would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at this property.

5/5 Excellent

My husband and I absolutely loved our one night stay at Aerie Retreat. The sauna, hot tub and views were amazing and so relaxing! The property is well looked after, amenities were clean and the booking process and communication was easy. We’ll be back! Thanks Braye and family.
