This is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Set on the edge of a rugged valley, facing northwards and overlooking the pristine, trout infested waters of the South Esk River, this sanctuary provides a true Tasmanian experience.

The property is located 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of northern Tasmania's tourist hub, Launceston, and is the ideal base for exploring wineries, national parks and world heritage areas.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay for the first stop in our Tassie adventure. Joe's place is even better than it looks in the photos, and is in a lovely peaceful area close to Launceston CBD. Loved the wood fire, the kitchen views, and the amazing shower!!

No extras or homely touches. No pillows on the couch, no soap or shampoo or anything in the bathroom. Very disappointed that people were staying downstairs and I didn’t know this till I got there. This needs to be made clear on Airbnb. Nice, clean house with a good view.

Hi Lauren, I apologize for not having soap and shampoo. These should have been available to you. The house is presented as you see in the photos when booking and it does in fact say on the listing there is a separate unit below that it is also available on airbnb.

Hi Maliny, Im sorry that you had such a bad experience but the major problem highlighted by your group was the heating (we offered to light the fire for you, and even bought new heaters for each room so that your second night would be more comfortable. As the extra set of locks was an oversight of mine (and a new addition to the property I was unaware of) you can probably understand my confusion when you told me the doors were jammed. I hope you enjoyed your time in Tasmania. Kind regards, Joe

The best attributes about this place are its great view and large size. You can see the dam and Lake Trevellyn. Easy access to Blackstone Park for swimming. Stunning modern bathroom upstairs. Just like a previous reviewer said, we also saw a few huntsmen spiders due to the unfini…
