This lovely house is the best accommodation we found in Tasmania. Fully self contained it is like a studio apartment. Freya adds little touches like food basics in the fridge but you can buy wine and her wonderful jam. The view to Mt Wellington is stunning. We walked everywhere but it is a steep climb from the city however takes only 10 minutes.

The Glebe Emporium is a little gem! A spacious, attractive and comfortable space for a couple. We loved the views from the front shop windows and enjoyed the stroll down into town. Freya has worked out how to be a great Airbnb host and together with her husband Graham, offer such a characterful property with many thoughtful touches. Delicious breakfast and refreshments, there is everything you need. My husband is a paraplegic wheelchair user and we are often offered quite institutional accessible hotel rooms - this was so far from that! A pleasure to stay, it was hard to leave! We loved Hobart and would stay again at the Glebe Emporium given the chance. Thanks!

We had such a lovely 4 night stay here. The house is beautifully finished and has everything you could need. Thoughtful touches make you really feel at home like eggs, bread, milk and jam. The house is very spacious for two, and so comfortable. All sorts of maps and brochures give you info about Hobart. Freya was in touch through the week to check in with us. basically a perfect experience!

What a delightful cottage that had a very welcoming "home away from home" feel about it. We found it wonderful that Freya cared enough to suggest extra points of interest on our planned journeys to ensure we had the very best experience in and around Hobart. We loved our stay with you! Thank you Freya.

We stayed in Freya’s home for 2 nights at the end of April. The house is lovely and the extra details and special touches that Freya has added gives the property a “Home away from Home” feel. The home is situated in a brilliant spot in Glebe, within walking distance to restaurants and the supermarket. It also has a lot of history to it, which we found intriguing. Freya’s home is beautiful and a lot of thought has been put in to make guests feel welcome – we especially loved the Sheridan towels, the homemade jam, folders available with plenty of information to get around Hobart and vouchers for local sights and restaurants. We will definitely stay here when visiting Hobart again – Freya and her special touches to the accommodation made our stay that much more enjoyable, we felt very spoiled!

Freya & Bryan were perfect hosts. So delightful to chat with them and informative about the town. They transported us to and from the airport. The airbnb was very comfortable, quaint and stacked well with special treats. The location was great for walking everywhere. We would definitely return to their place in the future. Thank you!

What a fantastic place! Freya's house is amazing - such a huge, comfortable space, modern kitchen/bathroom with every amenity you could want, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Gorgeous house with views of the city and mountain, and a very quiet location. We stayed with a 14 month old and the space was very child friendly and Freya generously supplied a cot, bath and even toys for bubs, which was so lovely. Was a treat to stay here – can’t wait to come back!
