Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get to Flagstaff Estate?

Flagstaff Estate is located at 277 Flagstaff Gully Road, Lindisfarne TAS 7015. The property is in the Flagstaff Valley directly next door to the Meehan Ranges on Hobart's picturesque Eastern Shore. You may feel like you are at a rural retreat, however this luxury accommodation is only 8 minutes from the Hobart CBD and a quick 10 minute drive to Hobart Airport.


The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy local bushwalks, fantastic mountain bike tracks, world-class wineries, and all that Southern Tasmania has to offer at your doorstep. Being secluded from major roads and traffic, no public transport is within walking distance from the property. We recommend considering a hire car for your stay at Flagstaff Estate.

Is Flagstaff Estate wheelchair accessible?

There is a ramp suitable for wheelchair access entering from the outdoor deck area. The other entry requires guests to climb 5 stairs to access the living areas of the house. Once inside, the house is all on the one level.

I'm on holidays! Is there restaurants/cafes/shopping nearby?

Flagstaff Estate is 5 minutes from Eastlands, a major shopping centre with restaurants, department stores and takeaways. Lindisfarne Village is also a very short drive over the hill, and has a supermarket, bottleshop, chemist, bakery and cafes.

Can I have a gathering at Flagstaff Estate?

We understand our property is the perfect location for family and friends to get together a celebrate a reunion, birthday, elopement, bridal shower, retreat or similar. We welcome enquiries about the purpose of your stay. Should we accept your booking for an event, an event fee for additional cleaning/ maintenance may be charged. Please contact us to discuss. If you would like to have a site visit to assess the suitability of the space please see additional FAQs below.

Is Flagstaff Estate pet-friendly?

Yes, we are dog-friendly. However, you must seek permission prior to bringing your pet and only 1 dog is allowed during your stay. A pet fee will be charged on top of your booking to allow for additional cleaning.


If you are having your special day with us and really want to bring a (very well behaved) second pet, we may consider this provided they are only at the property for a short duration and kept on a lead with dedicated pet sitters at all times.


Our semi-rural location boasts plenty of space, wildlife, and a peaceful rural vista. There are so many native animals that call our property home - kangaroos, joeys, possums, birds, and two very friendly magpies that love sitting on the verandah and meeting you! For this reason, we must ensure our local wildlife remains safe and free to roam.

Can I have more people stay at Flagstaff Estate?

Flagstaff Estate is a spacious property, currently sleeping up to 19 guests. Infants and young children in portable cots/beds can be added to any booking, please just let us know as any linen/bedding requirements may be an extra charge. Please ensure the number of occupants does not exceed the original number as stated when the booking was confirmed, so as the correct amount of linen is provided. Extra guests over 4 adults incur a $35pp charge per night.

Is the pool secure from tiny people entering?

All doors leading to the indoor pool area are completely lockable and close automatically. As there is no fence it is extremely important, especially with children around, that all doors are kept locked at all times when the pool is not in use. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Glass around the pool area is prohibited. This is to ensure your safety of the pool/spa for incoming guests.

Do you offer early check-in/late check-out?

Standard check-in is 3pm and checkout is 10am. Wherever possible, we are happy to offer an early check-in or late check-out for guests. Please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request as this will be determined on other bookings and scheduled cleaning and maintenance.
