Simon and Brett provide a beautiful home in a lovely part of Launceston. They go out of their way to make a stay at their place special. We have not stayed in a better BnN. Highly recommended

Such a gorgeous place to stay while in Launceston. Every detail has been thought of, the location is perfect and the cottage is just so comfortable and cosy. Simon and Brett are warm and friendly hosts, they made us feel so welcome during our stay. We have stayed in many airbnbs and must say this was our favourite yet. We didn't want to leave and hope to be back!

Our stay in The School House was stunning and comfortable. We were greeted with fresh bread, milk, jam and a warm and friendly tour by Brett who instantly made us feel at home. The recent renovation of the studio has been completed to perfection with hidden detail everywhere. The private garden with the ivy wall was stunning in the mornings and the couch and bed cosy at night time. Brett and Simon have thought of everything and even through we were within walking distance of everything we needed or wanted to see, we thoroughly enjoyed just staying inside in what felt like luxury accomodation. Our son Archie thought it was just the best place ever and we can't wait to visit again! Thanks boys xx

Simon and Brett are such generous hosts - lovely little thoughtful extras at every turn made our stay such a delight. The schoolhouse is so spacious and beautifully appointed. We had a truly wonderful time and would recommend the The Old Thornhill Schoolhouse to anyone thinking of a quiet or romantic weekend in Launceston!

What an amazing stay I had at Simon's place. Beautifully renovated heritage flat, with extremely luxurious finishes. Everything from check in, welcome and check out was perfect. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in! Little touches like fresh milk (and even fresh eggs!), coffee, tea and honey were supplied as well as tips on local coffee joints. Within walking distance to everything in Launceston. Would highly recommend Simon's place and I will definitely be back!

Simon User ProfileSimon is a superhost.

Hi - I'm Simon and I've been in hospitality/property management for about 27 years. My partner Brett flew with Virgin for 13 years and is now based here in Launceston. Both of us enjoy travel, relaxing in our our downtime and are extremely respectful of other people's property when a guest ourselves.

When we travel we like to eat out and exercise. But most of all we like to eat and explore (yes, we love fresh food and produce). We rarely drink but love the beauty of wine regions.

I hope to build great and respectful business friendships here on Air B'n'B
