Kevin was a fantastic host. He went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The house was in a fantastic location and we met some lovely people whilst we were there. Thanks Kevin for your great hospitality.
- Located very near the city centre
- Kevin is helpful and friendly
- The entire house only has 1 toilet and shower. During our stay, there were two other groups who were staying there at the same time. As a result, a total of 11 of us were sharing the toilet and shower. It was very inconvenient. This information was not told to me beforehand
- Beds/sheets do not look particularly clean
- I was able to rent an ENTIRE service apartment in the Sandy Bay area for just 10AUD more. As such, i feel that the host's prices for just one room is steep.
Kevin's place was clean and comfortable with a nice view of New Town. It was a short walk from a nice little commercial/restaurant district and easy (for a friend I was visiting) to find. It's RIGHT on a bus line and the internet access is good. This seems to be a rarity in Australia as a whole, so it was a relief to have good wireless where I was staying. The bathroom leaves something to be desired as it was a little messy but the water was hot and otherwise it was clean.
Kevin wasn't there but he was very accommodating with having friends let me in and show me around. Overall it's a fine place to lay your head for your Tasmanian holiday, just probably not somewhere you're going to want to spend many hours just hanging out.
Noisy place close to an heavy traffic road, no TV. Curtains do not close properly. Heating is not included. A bit dirty, we did not feel good.
I stayed 2 nights in Kevin's home,it was a comfortable and very clean .Kevin is a good person,he always help and welcome us,I would like to recommend you stay in Kevin's home in Tasmania and the location is very great!
A friend and I stayed with Kevin for the Wooden Boat Festival. His place is basic but very clean and tidy. Kevin picked us up at the airport, dropped us off at the Festival, took our luggage to his place and then delivered us back to the airport at the end, all in a timely fashion. We caught the bus back to the house and down to the docks and it worked well, stopping right outside. He is an excellent, patient host, always ready to help with any issues.
Kevin was a fantastic host, making sure we had everything we needed. The house is on Newtown Rd only 10mins by bus into Hobart city. Also close to North Hobart which has cafe's, cinema and clothing stores.
There are even cafe's walking distance from the house and a Safeway.
The house was clean and comfortable for our long weekend.
Kevin's hospitality was excellent. Quick communication to turn around a last-minute booking.
We stayed with Kevin for 2 nights over the new year. Kevin is such a nice person dedicated to make your stay pleasant. The location is very convenient as it only takes you 10 min to get to the harbour and 5 min to the shops. He keeps his place so nice and neat! and provides you with everything you need for cooking (pots, pans etc) I would totally recommend this place!
The rooms were clean and the place was very centrally located. We did have a car to move around but with shopping centres so close by it wasn't a hassle getting provisions. Some of the utensils have seen better days but Kevin was very gracious and helpful. All in all, we enjoyed our trip to Hobart.
