Kevin was very accommodating to our vague arrival time and very nice. Beds were comfortable. However, it was a warm day and the room was suffocatingly hot at night as there was no fan and road noise (room is on front of the house) and insects prevented us from keeping the windows open. Wifi was great in shared kitchen but spotty in the room when the door was closed.
Kevin is a very friendly people. His place is good. Easy park. Not far form the centre. Near to Woolworth, Coles.
Arrivée un peu tardive, Kévin nous a proposé de venir nous chercher à l'aéroport, moyennant le prix d'un taxi, mais c'est l'intention qui compte ;-)
Kévin est très agréable, souriant et serviable.
La chambre pour 3, voire 4 avec le canapé, était proche d'une salle d'eau partagée mais nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour l'utiliser,
J'y reviendrai avec plaisir mais je privilégierai une chambre avec vue sur la mer !
Kevin was polite and quick to accept our request to stay. His place was clean and the tidy although very basic with outdated furniture and decor. Maintenance is required including a few electrical faults and plumbing issues. Kevin was not open with us about having multiple others staying in the house at the same time and we were woken in the night to people entering our room in search for their own which was quite frightening as we thought someone was breaking in. There was also a lot of noise from them getting eating in the kitchen and from cars on the road so we did not sleep well. New town is a great area to stay and lots of nice restaurants and shops 10 mins away.
Hi Syr Sorry to hear about that. My apologies for that happening. Your booking for one night was very last minutes which I was happy to accept. Please note I was and always am open. There were no other bookings for the other 3 bedrooms when I met you and showed you around. Please note I do everything I can to look after my guests. The same night, I got received message at 11pm from a couple who's flight was cancelled and had no where to stay, so I offer to pick them up from the airport 11.30pm and help them with there booking, show them around the house and took them to buy some dinner as they were hungry as most places where closed in teh middle of the night. I understand it was late and maybe i shouldn't have taken the booking but they were desperate and did not have any place to go, it is not in me to leave some one out in the cold. However I do apologies if they had mistaken came to your door. All the rooms have locks and I provided all guests my guests with room door keys so they can lock their rooms. I did notice your room door open but didn't want to disturbed to I didn't say any thing.
You are correct. my place is simple but i try my best to keep it clean. The furniture might be outdated but they are very comfy as can be seen in the photos.
Any extra sick was put in recently but should corrected soon as it's been holidays to very hard to get someone in and the same with one switch for one light but has been fixed now.
I do my best to accommodate very last minutes one night bookings and thank you for staying with me.
Beskrivelse af bolig og nabolag var nøjagtig, og Kevin er en utrolig venlig og gæstfri vært. Vi var yderst tilfredse med vores ophold.

Thank you Margrethe for your kind words. I used Google to do the translation.
I do my best to look after my guests and provided every they need. If you request something I will do my best to provide it, any time. I keep my home simple but clean and comfy, plus I try every day to improve, bit by bit.
I wish you a wonderful holiday and a Happy New Year. Kevin
We had short and nice stay at Kevin's. Room was warm and comfortable, kitchen and bathroom clean and practical. Location is not that bad as we had a car to move around. Hobart is nice and worth visiting. Kevin was welcoming and helpfully. Cheers!
Thank you Romain. It was a pleasure having you guys over. Very kind, easy to get along with and understanding. I know you guys seen quite a few places in Tassie but its very different in summer so hope you make it back when Tassie comes to life.
Until next time, All the best.
Dear all, we are the tour groups from China, and stayed in Kevin Sher's loveyly home on Feb. The house so closed to the bus station, convenience for transporation. The house has a big kitchen, really suitable for family gathering, cooking big meal. The house also cloed to a supermarket, a Chinese resturant. We had a really good time there and would like to stay there next time for tour.
