Kevin is very friendly and responsive, he has also given some good tips for visiting.
The room is very tidy, and bus stop is just in front of the door (though I learnt that you can not trust the bus too much)
Kevin was a nice host, he tried to help us as much as he could. The house itself is quite, but misses a bit familiar flair. The rooms and toilets are very basic, but ok. So his home is perfekt to have a short stay.
We enjoyed our stay with Kevin. The location and access to the city is as described, the house clean and Kevin is keen for his guests to openly communicate their likes or concerns. He was very flexible when we asked to move to another room on arrival which we appreciated.
Getting on well with your host is such a big part of feeling "at home". Kevin made us feel more like family than guests. He encouraged us to let him know whenever we had any questions or suggestions and we knew we only had to ask and he would take care of our request right away - whether it was additional towels, dishwashing liquid or a ride to the airport. Although we did not have any complaints during our stay, he repeatedly asked if we were comfortable and to please let him know if anything was amiss so he could fix it - great attitude, we felt very well taken care of.
Kevin, my host in Hobart New Town, was on top of communication with me from the time I made my reservation until I arrived. He made sure I understood how to get to the place, how to get into the place, and all of the features of this very nice apartment. At first I thought the location was a bit far away from town, but the transportation was easy on the convenient public bus, but I really didn't mind the half hour walk into downtown Hobart when the weather was good. There is a great cafe near by if one doesn't want to cook in the well furnished kitchen.
Kevin made a special trip the first evening to see that I was settled in to my room and offered all of the facilities of the kitchen and his home to me. He freely offered suggestions of things to see and was available by text and phone at all times.
I loved the view of Mount Wellington from my bedroom. The room was comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen were clean. I have nothing to criticize about this Airbnb stay.
The house is not fancy, but it is comfortable and even with other guests, and there is sufficient privacy.
He picked us up airport. The house was even better than what we expected. And was close to shops and everything we needed.
