This is a tiny room on a steep busy street with no parking. You may have to park 300m away. There is a gravel driveway with difficult access and a big step. There is a young loud family of 4 upstairs with 2 dogs, we are not ninjas. There is another Airbnb next door adjacent to the room. The heat pump is next to the bed and may be noisy. Please note we are in the middle of renovating.
“Funky and comfortable little space. Really great spot in Launceston, out of the hustle but close enough drive to the main cbd areas. We had a minor issue with a faulty power board during our stay but our hosts were super attentive to resolving the problem for us as swiftly as possible. :)”
COVID19 has certainly brought its challenges. Following a short break we are now opening our unit for weekly stays, up to 15 days. Ideally located five minutes' drive from the city centre. Our unit is well-appointed, spacious and private, with fabulous views across the city, river and mountains. The bird life has been amazing in our garden, and the changing hues in the evening and early morning are worthy of photography.
“As anticipated from all the positive reviews, we really enjoyed our stay at Wendy's place. We loved the garden and small deck where you can sit and enjoy the sun, the birds and the views. And when we were ready to head inside there were comfy lounge chairs, a well equipped kitchen and a very comfortable bed. It is a quiet spot, a short walk to Cataract Gorge and a short drive into town. We would definitely stay again.”
Welcome, experience the 1840's in comfort. It is warm, comfortable, spacious & enriched with history and character. Former residence of Frank Browne, first man to conduct xray in Tasmania. Great location, CBD-3 min walk to restaurants, shops, city park & aquatic centre. The interior's been lovingly restored & currently there is restoration work on the exterior including a rear wall. This will not impact your stay.
“As Bernadette says in her listing this is a 1840 building undergoing restoration. The unit we stayed in was functional but the floor plan reflects the age of the building. The ceilings are high and the woodwork mostly original giving it a certain charm. It’s a little like stepping back in time but with modern conveniences like indoor plumbing and HVAC. The parking in back is tight and a small car works best. While we were there a larger SUV had to back down the driveway rather than negotiate the tight turns and narrow drive. We had no problem with the compact car we rented. The location is great for getting around Launceston. We walked most places. There is a bit of a hill to walk up on your way home but not as bad as some places. Launceston is quite hilly except for the CBD.”
