Airport pickup and drop off available for $10 per person.
Very important to note if you stay with us; we have three (overly) friendly indoor dogs, two cats, several ducks and chooks (including a rooster who crows at odd times).
Two rooms, one with ensuite, available for a group of up to 4 people in a beautiful 1920 California Bungalow 3km from CBD.
One room has two single beds, a desk, two chairs and a wardrobe. There is a private bathroom with a sink and shower. The room is at the back of the house with views of our beautiful garden and the surrounding hilly neighbourhood.
The other room also has two single beds with a window to the front garden facing quite a busy street. I won't pretend there isn't early morning traffic noise so if that will be a problem it probably isn't the place for you. There is a desk, a wardrobe and dressing table for your things.
Guests are also welcome to use our bathroom, with a bath and all the common areas of the house.
Our street is one of Launceston's busiest during the day but it is quiet at night.
When you ring the doorbell don't be put off by the dogs barking. They get very excited at visitors but they are extremely friendly.
Clean up after yourself in public areas and treat us and our house with respect. Smoking is allowed on the deck or verandah.
We live and work in the house with our pets. We are happy for guests mix with us or keep to themselves to whatever degree they are comfortable with. Our guest room is kept closed when it is empty but our dogs and cat often treat an open door as an invitation. It is up to you to encourage or shoo them away. It is important that you are comfortable with dogs if you stay with us because although they are very clean and friendly, they are not always the best behaved dogs in the world and not easy to ignore when you are outside your room.
My sister Ned and I brought a beautiful art deco duplex back to its former glory in the Blue mountains and now we've moved to Tasmania; this time it is art & crafts/craftsman. I drive people mad constantly searching for our next project/adventure and find it very hard to settle down. We spent over 3 years in Japan and three Summers in Ireland and several years ago we backpacked and hitch hiked around Asia and Europe with my infant son, Akira, who is now grown up and also an airbnb host in West End in Brisbane. These experiences have made a huge impact on my life.
I believe that we should look after the planet and that Australia is plenty big enough to welcome a lot more people from countries less fortunate than ours.
