A queen bed downstairs in a smallish and very quiet room with access to a second bathroom keeping you separate from us if you wish. Easy walking distance from Devonport cbd, 5 minute drive to ferry terminal and transport options around Tasmania.

The space

Our place isn't hard to find. It has four bedrooms, two downstairs (one of which will be yours) with a rumpus room downstairs too (full of classic Citroen car parts at the moment - no apologies) you still will have access to a tv in this room if you have time. We have both indoor and outdoor dining areas, and a modern kitchen.

My wife Gill, and I, are almost always home before 6 pm most days so will generally be there to greet you.

You have access to a separate downstairs bathroom next to your bedroom. We have wifi, just ask for the password, and also ask for instructions on how to control the gas hot water if we forget. Your room has two bedside lamps, a heater and electric blankets if you feel the cold. Although we are family friendly, there is no real room for children/babies in the room - a bit sad as we understand the pressures and cost of travelling with little ones. We wish to be, however, flexible for young travelling families - we'll see what we can do so just ask!
We provide tea and coffee, and can provide breakfast. We're respectful and relaxed and are happy to follow your lead on how much you'd like to chat or just chill. You have access to the rear yard. There is no off street parking. We don't mind supplying eating utensils but prefer you don't cook a three course meal in the kitchen unless we are there to assist. However, if we're cooking we don't mind sharing our meal with you. Feel free to prepare breakfast or lunch for your days travelling, or have a bbq!

Guest access

You'll have access to our living areas, the laundry, rumpus room and outdoor areas. We can supply toast, cereals and related items for breakfast. Although we say no pets, this is only because we have a bird indoors that has free run of the house. If your pet stays outside we can reach an agreement.

Interaction with guests

We will almost always be present, if we will be unavailable we will make thorough arrangements. You may even get the odd glass of wine. Or two. With a view.

Other things to note

We will be more than happy to assist in trip planning and directions.

I did my booking very late and the family was so accomodating and very hospitable, shame we couldn't have dinner with them, but the sleep is all we wanted. Bed was comfy and place is quite. Thanks Chris

We found Chris and Gillian to be warm and hospitable hosts. A very comfortable stop after a long boat journey. Fabulously comfortable bed, much appreciated. Chris gave us a great tip for our rather late meal, at a nearby Thai restaurant. Lovely food and a friendly atmosphere. A great start to our Tassie holiday.

Chris is a great host, very friendly and so helpful with dinner recommendation and where to find the best coffee in town and so generous, providing a complimentary bottle of wine for dinner which was an excellent Sauvignon Blanc, perfect with the Thai dinner. We had a fantastic night sleep in a very comfortable bed downstairs from the main part if the house, a bathroom to ourselves and separate entry so we could come and go as needed. Great stay.

Chris and Gill are excellent hosts and lively family. House is a home away from home. They take care of every small need of their guests. I would recommend them as first choice to be in devinport.
