1850's Georgian home that has been lovingly restored into a modern townhouse.
About Madelyn Wilson
We have a young family with two special helpers (6 and 3 years old), and have travelled abroad (once even with them!) for various professional and curious purposes. We love Hobart, and feel a real privilege to be custodians of this beautiful example of Georgian architecture, which was constructed using convict-made red bricks on sandstone footings, rough hewn structural timbers, pit-sawn floorboards, and was originally roofed with timber shingles.
Madelyn Wilson purchased this Townhouse in 2010
Why Madelyn Wilson chose Hobart
It could be some kind of miracle that a house like this still exists in a location like this. We simply could not resist to try to purchase it, and when it became a reality we've been so happy to share it with travellers visiting Hobart from all over the world.
What makes this Townhouse unique
Our guests are generally impressed by our location (short walk to everything in Hobart, including Salamanca and the Waterfront being a pleasant walk through the park across the road), and the presentation of such an historic building in largely original form with tasteful and interesting decorations selected to prompt our imagination as to how life might have been in a past era.

Could n't get a better Hobart location ?
Cool apartment. 200M from the action.
Thanks Mel, was great to have you stay. Nick.
Convenient and Cosy
We arrived late in the afternoon at Fifty Five Davey St after travelling from Launceston via Freycinet National Park. We were thrilled with the central location and layout of the property. It was much appreciated to have a welcome package on our first night so that we didn't have to race out and buy supplies. When planning our trip I had emailed Nick and he gave me some great tips on where to eat and what to see. This was particularly important as we were there over New Year and we needed to pre book a lot of sight seeing and restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom luxurious. Our friend from Perth stayed downstairs and we had a room upstairs opposite the kitchen/ lounge area. I would highly recommend the property and definitely stay there again. Thanks Nick
Hi Anne, thanks for your great review, we were really happy to have your family stay over the New Years period. Keep in touch if you'd like to return anytime. Nick.
We stayed here with friends to celebrate my husband's 50th. A beautiful building that has clearly been lovingly restored, and super close to Salamanca Markets, the wharves and the ferry to MONA. The entire place was tastefully decorated, and all the little extra touches made it feel even more special. Beds were comfy and the rooms were quiet enough that kids could sleep while adults continued talking. Nick was super easy to deal with. We will definitely be back!
Hi Amanda, thank you for choosing to stay with us, and thank you also for your great review. Also Happy Birthday to Darren, we're glad you all had such a good time. .... And we hope the girls kick that bug very quickly. Keep in touch if you'd like to return any time in the future. Travel safely, Nick.
Great location, and everything you need
Clean, comfortable and well located close to the waterfront and Salamanca Markets. Toasty heaters worked well, and the kitchen had a good selection of equipment including pod coffee machine and decently sharp knives. Davey St is a busy street, however the home has thick walls and is quiet. Owner has been friendly and responsive. Would stay again!
Thanks Victoria, it was great to have you and your friends stay. We're glad we could accommodate your early arrival for Fran's baby to sleep on her normal schedule too. Keep in touch if you'd like to return any time, Nick and Emily.
We all enjoyed our stay at 55 Davey st. Plenty of room for our large group of ladies. Close to Salamanca place and CBD
Hi Debra, thanks for your kind words. We often host groups of ladies on their annual "catch up", and have found our house is very popular among these groups. Keep in touch if your extended family needs a Hobart gettaway anytime soon!
Great property with everything we needed. Our Host was quick to respond to correspondence and nothing was a problem. Would recommend this property and would stay again when in Hobart.
Hobart CBD, Salamanca and Waterfront precinct only 2 minutes walk in any direction. MONA ferry departs Brooke St Wharf, St David's Park directly across the road.
