Catherine and Svetlana were wonderful hosts, making me feel welcomed from the start. They are very accommodating which made my stay feel like a home away from home. Catherine also offered to take me sightseeing for a bit which was nice of her to do so. In terms of the house, the room is comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped which allowed me cook a lot of meals during my 6 week stay. Towels and bed linen are also provided. The house is close to the city and is very convenient when travelling to and from the city. There is a lovely view of Mount Wellington and the bay right outside too.
Catherine was away but Svetlana was the perfect host and made us feel most welcome. In a great location, comfortable, clean and all you could want. Hope to return. Oh and special thanks to Effie (the cat) who was generous with her affection.
Catherine and her friends were wonderful and comforting throughout my 5 week stay. I am a student from Melbourne who was placed at the Royal Hobart Hospital for clinical placement. It is a perfect distance either by car or bus from Catherine's house. Around 15mins during peak hour time to the city or 5-10mins when it wasn't busy. The bus stop is a 5 minute walk will steep hills! Because Hobart is just like that :) There is also a shopping centre called Eastlands which is a 2 minute drive from the house. Oh, the movies are located there too!! And the Hobart International Airport is a 15-20min drive.
The home and room is a comfy as it looks. Quite spacious than the picture. There is a kitchen to share lovely meals with, and Catherine's friends was more than happy to make some delicious foods to share too.
I'm so grateful that Catherine has taken care of me for the 5 weeks there. So many picturesque landscapes as you step outside of the house. I'll miss everyone and will certainly come back to visit in time.
Oh and open the front door when you hear a little meow. It's Effie the cat, she want's to come in xx
It was a wonderful experience at Catherine's place which surrounded by a stunning view including that of Hobart's famous bridge. Catherine is an amazingly considerate host, always making sure that we were comfortable. We had requested a twin room, but instead she kindly gave us two rooms at no extra cost. She even made us hot breakfast and even gave us a free ride to Bellirive, driving all the way just to drop us. It is a beautiful place and with Catherine around, I assure it is about the best place you can find in the area. The name is an accurate description of what you will get.
Very good location if you want to explore Hobart and surroundings. Catherine is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in Montego Bay
Catherine made me very welcome and invited me to join the family and other guests for dinner.
The facilities were good. The stop for the bus over the bridge to the city centre was only about a 5 minute walk.
