No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for infants (Under 2 years)

We are a young couple with two beautiful dogs, they do sleep inside at night, if we are home.

This is a strictly no smoking house. While you may smoke on the street, please place cigarette butts in the red lid bin next to kitchen afterwards. Do not place cigarette butts in neighbour's bins.

Only listed guests may stay over. It is not okay to invite people inside who are not staying with us.

It is important that guests understand this is not a hotel, it is an opportunity to rent a nice space for very cheap and have more money to spend on their holiday. Whilst staying with us you rent your room and the bathroom. We let guests access kitchen and laundry facilities too, but these are also our spaces and we are not comfortable with constantly cleaning up after others. If you want to use these areas, it is expected that you leave them exactly as you found them, cleaning any food off the bench and putting your dishes away. If you are not happy to do this, please, cancel your booking.

If guests are staying on a Tuesday guests will need to vacate the house between 12PM and 3PM. Our cleaner comes on this day. She has been with us for a very long time, she is friendly and very reliable.

There are little notes around the house informing you of other things we need you to know.

Most of all, enjoy your time!!! :D

Rayne's large double room is beautiful. Panoramic view out over Launceston from the hillside location. Very good wifi. Comfortable bed for two. Lovely bathroom and high quality bath amenities. A very good choice for the Launceston area. Rayne is a very good communicator as well. Access to tea and coffee making in the kitchen. Easy parking.

This was our first stay with Airbnb and we are delighted to have stayed at Rayne and Chris's home (1st floor bedroom). It was a well decorated and clean room with beautiful views, very cosy and comfortable. We only got a chance to say hello. Rayne & Chris are amazing hosts and they had provided for everything we would have needed. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend anyone who wishes to stay here.

Although I didn't get a chance to meet Rayne in person her communication before and throughout our stay was very accommodating and the place itself was very comfortable and well-equipped. She made sure to leave us a lovely welcome message.
