Rosa and David are down-to-earth host. My family and I have an unforgettable memory during staying.
Rosa and David were the loveliest hosts, with a warm welcome on arrival and comfortable restful he and room offered. The room was clean and access to shared bathroom was no problem. The view was brilliant overlooking the Tamar River and lights of Launceston and house location is close to Cataract Gorge (a must see).
Breakfast was cereal, toast, jams, fresh fruit, juice and coffee/tea, so beautifully presented again overlooking a wonderful view.
Rosa offered great tourism advise, access to her wonderful books, company and privacy.
I will definately be back, thank you both.
Rosa was incredibly nice, friendly, helpful (with tips on places to visit) and easy to get along with. She outlined the house rules etc and made us feel quite at home. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness was refreshing. The location was very convenient, great view over the river to Launceston, a short walk into town and very close to Cataract Gorge. The facilities were excellent - great hot water for the bath & shower, fluffy soft towels, super comfy bed, and Rosa's breakfasts (with plenty of freshly cut fruit, juice, percolated coffee, cereal and toast) were something special. This was our first airbnb experience and we are certainly going to choose this option when traveling in future.
We had a lovely stay with Rosa and David with them in their house. They were very kind and respectful. They provided good suggestions and were wonderful with out kids. They even offered a puzzle for them to try out. Breakfast was lovely. Location was very close to the gorge. Thanks for the stay.
Rosa & David are great hosts and their house is the best accommodation for families. Breakfast is very delicious too. Definitely will come back someday in our next Aust trip.:)
Rosa and Dave are quite nice and very happy to share things with us. The breakfast is good with lots of fruits.
Rosa and David were the loveliest of hosts. They were great with our three year old daughter! The house was beautiful, airy and green with a fantastic view! Would definitely stay again :)
