  • What an amazing experience to stay in the Omni Pod which has to be the coolest place in Hobart to stay. From the minute we walked in we knew we were staying in the perfect space for us. The views over the harbour and up to Mt Wellington were spectacular!! However it was the comfort and thought of the hosts that made the place such a memorable experience. from the basket of fresh goodies to the super comfy beds the retreat was a great get away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne!! Of course there was the ultra special and unique outdoor bath, what a hoot! Can't wait to come back

Overboard Clause

If the property is not left how you found it, both internally and externally apart from the reasonable and expected use, we will charge you for extra cleaning plus the cost of any repairs from damage or loss. Believe us, you don’t want to make it on our special small list – it’s the ‘banned’ list! To avoid this please do the following:

  • Ensure premises are cleaned to the same standard as provided upon check-in, both internally and externally after the function.
  • Remove all rubbish to the allocated bins in the lower ground carpark. This includes removing all beer, wine bottles and cartons to the recycling bins provided. Any spillages which occur on carpets or in hallways during this process are to be spot-cleaned. It makes it really hard for us to get into the clean to make the retreat beautiful and sparkling for our next guests if we spend the first half an hour struggling up and down in the lift with boxes of empty bottles spilling beer on ourselves.
  • Remove all decorations including 3M hooks and stickers plus all vegetation and flowers.
  • Vacuum and mop the floors accordingly.
  • Stack the dishwasher and turn it on before you leave.
  • Please discuss with the manager if furniture is to be re-arranged. Please note the Huon Pine bath and the outdoor table on the deck cannot be moved as the bath is plumbed in and the table weighs a tonne. Return all furniture to its original location before you check out, and lift furniture when moving it to avoid additional charges for scratching the wooden floors.
  • Live amplified music is permitted between the following times: Monday to Thursday 7am–10pm,  Friday 7am–12am, Saturday 9am–12am, Sunday and public holidays 10am–10pm.
  • The retreat is a smoke-free environment and smoking is not allowed at the property or within 10m of any of the building’s access points. All smokers must go to the ground floor and smoke on the street. They will need your key to get access back into the building.
  • We do not allow the use of fireworks, wood or bead-fired BBQs, sparklers, hay bales, confetti, glitter, rice, no balloons filled with glitter, flower petals, gaffa tape, sticky tape or Blu-Tack at the property, you get the message- nothing we have to spend hours cleaning up.
  • Have fun but make sure everyone keeps themselves safe and Avalon nice. In other words leave the property as if you had just thrown an unsupervised party at your grandmother’s place!

Functions at Avalon Coastal Retreat

Personally curated interiors and transformative views make this an unmissable respite for those searching for the bespoke and intimate event experience. Avalon Coastal Retreat is a spectacular wedding venue and offers total privacy within four glass walls. The Coastal Retreat is also the ultimate destination for corporate functions, anniversaries, birthdays, family reunions, and any occasion that deserves to be shared and celebrated. Where the quiet of nature fills your ears and where the lavish and spectacular are standard.

 

  • This luxury property was perfect for a quiet holiday. We had stocked up with provisions in Bruny Island, Hobart and Sorell before arriving so we virtually stayed put for our 3 nights. Firstly, the environment: the view across the bay is breathtaking and simply sufficient entertainment in itself; the pathway down to the beach is like a little nature reserve with blue wrens, possums, wallabies and lovely trees; the beach is pristine. Fishing gear was in good order (remember to bring your own bait), and the wetsuits are a thoughtful touch if you wish to linger in the sea. Secondly, the house: beautifully designed to immerse you in the environment and capture the spectacular views, everything was in perfect condition and is very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped. The house has a modern artistic aesthetic and is really a lovely place to be, it's surprisingly warm and welcoming given the industrial type architecture. Those in our group who like to sleep in did find it a bit of a rude awakening when the rising sunshine came through the quite sheer blinds! I was happy to rise early and take advantage of morning coffee on the deck. Essentially, the property meets your expectations of a luxury retreat and you won't be disappointed. We had a wonderful few days there and totally relaxed and love it. Ann and Peta are very efficient and helpful.
