If you're seeking accommodation in North Hobart, look no further! Rose's place is one of the cosiest homes I've ever been to. Never thought I would see a heated towel rack and such a diverse collection of books but you will definitely be impressed by what she has. And then there's also little Wilfred who will brighten up your day if it's all cloudy outside! Rose provided me with a lot of useful information on events, attractions and even restaurants prior to, and during my stay. There's also brochures in her house that will help you get around. I fully recommend this listing to anyone who wishes to visit Hobart and I will certainly stay at her place again if I'm ever going back!
A beautiful and cosy home! I was so comfortable and peaceful staying here. A did not meet Rose in person as she was travelling but she was incredibly generous and helpful via email. I was made to feel at home by Anne who was house sitting for Rose. Wilfred the dog was the sweetest companion. There was tea, coffee, a lovely decked out kitchen and spa bath. And a manageable walk to North Hobart with beautiful views of the city below. Just loved my time in Hobart.
Just a short walk from trendy North Hobart, Rose's beautiful home welcomed me with much needed warmth. I was catered for with more than I could have needed. If unlimited tea and heated towel racks isn't enough, making a puppy friend in Wilfred is a mighty bonus. Also, Rose is super helpful by making great suggestions for local restaurants, events and activities. I really appreciated the love from such a classy lady.
Rosanne is a friendly and gracious host. She thoroughly went over all of the home's amenities and how to use the kitchen facilities and bathroom. Her home is just as lovely as it is in the pictures, more so! Everything was very clean and tidy. The backyard was a nice place to rest and relax where I enjoyed working on my computer with the company of her little dog Wilfred (so cute!) and her bunny HipHop. Rosanne even offered to pick up groceries for me while she was at the grocery store.
This was my first experience with Airbnb. Rose's was the best choice I could have made. The house is lovely and welcoming; full of travel books and memorabilia. Rose is a fountain of information as she is a well seasoned traveller. The location, while not in the CBD has buses or one could walk or ride a bike. It's close enough, a five minute walk to shops, supermarkets, trendy North Hobart, 10 minutes to MONA if you drive. The more I explored the more I found. The quality of food, linen and house maintenance is impeccable. Wilfred the little house dog will entertain and is much a part of the total experience. I can't thank Rose enough for her wonderful hospitality.
Good location with shops just down the road and ease of access to the city. The house is very comfortable and the room spacious. Rose takes a lot of pride in the house and is a gracious host. Loved the pets, loved the zero hassle stay. Nice and quiet and an ideal base to adventure out from. Thanks Rose for a great intro to AirBNB.
Rosanne has a beautiful home and she keeps it spotless clean. It has been an absolute joy to stay there! She is also very nice and helpful and she knows the area very well. And, Wilfred is the most adorable little dog that did his own part of making you feel welcome in the home. I can absolutely recommend place, enjoy your stay!

About the Host, Rosanne
Hi, my name is Rosanne, however most people call me Rose.
I am based in Tasmania, but love to travel, South of France being one of my favourite destinations. I am also in love with the buzz of big asian cities like Hong Kong.
We enjoy love hosting people from around the world.
Previously I was involved in the homestay program hosting O/S students which has been a great for both my son and myself.
I look forward to sharing a little bit of our paradise called Tasmania
