You will have the whole spacious apartment with its own deck all to yourself to enjoy. We have a large backyard with a gate in the fence to access the stream and parkland (a real treat for families) There is free parking on the street outside the house.
There is no wheelchair access as there are about twelve narrow steps (with handrails) and a garden pathway to get down to the apartment.
Interaction with guests
I live upstairs and will be here to show you through when you arrive and answer any questions about your stay, after that you will have the place to yourself to enjoy. The backyard is a shared space to enjoy. We have a small dog upstairs but she doesn't venture downstairs without me. Just text me or ring my doorbell if you need anything.
Other things to note
The place is a large, bright apartment that is set up to feel like a home not a hotel room. The queen bed (and sofa bed if needed) will be made up with fresh linen, and towels are supplied. I do not change linen or wash towels during your stay but there is a washing machine in the kitchen if you need to do a wash. There is an outside clothesline and two small Folding lines for drying clothes.
Check in and out times may be flexible depending on bookings.
Families are very welcome, just be aware that we have a raised deck and some steps.
There are about ten steps and a garden pathway to get to the apartment.
You are welcome to have a couple of visitors to the apartment, but no large groups or parties.
Please respect our quiet neighbourhood and keep noise to a minimum, especially after 10pm.
Please let me know who's coming (adults, children) to help me prepare for your visit.
No smoking inside but outside on the deck is ok.
Relax, unwind, enjoy yourself!

We moved to Hobart from Sydney in 2001, after coming to Tasmania for a holiday and just loving it.
I enjoy welcoming guests to our neighbourhood and providing a homely place to relax.
I live with my husband Danny and our retired dog Pippa.
