Roslyn was the best host we have met. She was so helpful on everything especially related to Tasmania. She provided us a lot of information upon our arrival. The place we stayed was very clean and cozy. The view from the place was fantastic. The beaches nearby are very nice. We strongly recommend this place and we will defintely come back to stay in this place next time. Thank you, Rosyln. Roslyn 這一位屋主對我們非常好,她人好nice, 知道我地第一次黎塔斯曼尼亞,更介紹左很多地方給我們。 而且這個居住的地方很大,很乾淨,好舒服。 設備非常齊全,風景非常好。去每一個景點也很方便。 下次再黎塔斯,一定會再住這一間房子。 :)

Thank you both for your generous comments. Yes the beach is so close and it is really a beautiful place to walk. So great that you could get a break away from Hong Kong and have a fun time in Tasmania. Great to meet you both and do travel this way again. Ros

Sparkly 5 stars, a gem of an Airbnb! Roslyn offers a beautiful accommodation with a gorgeous view over the water. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights here and would absolutely recommend for anyone visiting Hobart and the southeast. You need a car to do pretty much anything in Hobart and the surrounds, so why not stay at Roslyn's apartment a few miles away from the city? The bedroom is large and cozy, high quality linens, comfortable bed. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and self-catering with the highest quality appliances and thoughtful crockery, cutlery. Roslyn graciously supplied us a number of breakfast foods and other items, very appreciated! Both heating units worked well for chilly evenings and mornings. The wifi was occasionally temperamental, but overall worked well enough for normal online activity. Keep in mind there are some outdoor stairs to ascend to reach the entry to the apartment. Tip - we used the Coles supermarket and wine shop just down the road in Kingston, 2+ miles away, easy! Roslyn herself is a delight and puts a great deal of thought into her guests experience. Thanks again!

Thank you Andrea and Patrick for your generous and appreciative review, and thank you also for your feedback. The soaps are hand made locally with no chemicals and the cleaning products are organic. The foods supplied are mostly organic and are Tasmanian. The bread is made by an artisan baker who is local called Philadelphia. Thank you and happy travelling. Ros

Hi my name is Ros. I love meeting people and I have stayed with families while traveling, enjoying the personal and local experience this brings when in a new place. My passion is sailing and from the front deck I watch the yachts on the Derwent River, racing or heading for Bruny Island. I love to sit at the end of the day with a glass of wine enjoying the changing colors of the evening sky across the River. I enjoy music, cinema and as I am semi retired and semi self employed I have flexibility to share this beautiful place with others.
