About Us


Hosting Hobart is a locally owned and operated Hobart team, providing short term accommodation management services in Hobart and surrounding areas.

Hosting Hobart was founded by Matt Barnard, who has tertiary qualifications in property including Real Estate Valuation and has over 25 years of experience in Property Management across residential, retail and commercial property. He has worked for Real Estate Agents, Property Owners and Developers, was part of a Property Planning and Strategy team for State Government and has a very good understanding of Asset Management.

Our business started in 2016 after Matt successfully operated his own Airbnb for 2 years prior after recognizing a demand for guests seeking unique and family friendly accommodation. His Airbnb still operates today, so he has personal experience as an owner and operator.

The Hosting Hobart team has grown significantly since 2016 as we’ve established a reputation for providing a premium level of service to our property owners and guests. Our team are industry professionals who have worked with major hotel groups and are passionate about tourism. Hosting Hobart has now welcomed thousands of guests to Tasmania, and have a very high guest satisfaction level. We mostly receive 5 star reviews, particularly for property cleanliness, quality and responsiveness


Reservations & Guest Liaison

exceeding expectations

One of the most important aspects of the overall guest experience is the booking process and interaction with our team. It’s important that guests have accurate information about the property and that their expectations are met.

Our prompt, helpful and polite communication via websites such as Airbnb and Home Away Stayz booking sites makes guests feel they are valued, achieving more frequent bookings and return visits. Hosting Hobart focus on ensuring your guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay. From clear and regular communication and immaculately clean properties, to the small things, like a welcome pack, tourist information and high quality toiletries. Our attention to detail makes us stand out from the crowd and gives your guests a memorable stay. And this personalised service provides you with a piece of mind, knowing that your property is in good hands

We Aim For The Stars

Five stars to be specific

Our team receives enormous personal satisfaction from the positive reviews we receive from guests. On Airbnb we aim for 5 Star reviews and Superhost status. This can only be achieved by looking after our guests needs and ensuring we meet high standards for cleanliness, value, accuracy and responsiveness.

Great reviews result in better occupancy levels, higher nightly rates and a memorable holiday for the guests.


Our qualifications, customer care focus and attention to detail will ensure that offering your property on a short term basis utilizing the services of Hosting Hobart will be hassle-free, and offer generous financial rewards.
