Be our Guest - An Olde but a Goode!

A basic, neat and clean two bedroom 1920's style house right near the Launceston General Hospital and a large park with playground. Will suit the budget traveler, who likes comfort and privacy.

Perfect location to explore all Launceston and surrounds has to offer. Cataract Gorge, Museums, Aurora Stadium and the list goes on up the Tamar Valley, to vineyards, galleries, Seahorse World, Platypus House and Beaconsfield heritage museum.

Our house is on the bus route into the city centre but you can walk there in 10 - 15 minutes.

The house has one queen bed and two singles, there is one bathroom with shower over the bath.

Polished wooden floors, tiled bathroom, clean and comfortable, fully equipped eat in kitchen, lounge room with electric heating ducted to the kitchen. Bedrooms also have panel heating.

All linen is supplied. doonas, sheets, pillows, towels.
Children's toys and books to read bedtime stories.

The Coles supermarket is a 5 minute walk. Cafes,hotels, fresh seafood supply are all nearby, just a few minutes walk.

This would make an ideal base for anyone wanting to explore Launceston and the surrounds for a few days, or those looking to relocate - needing a base for a few weeks to get organised. Also perfect for those needing to be close to the hospital for a while.

Please have a look at my "Guide Book" I have prepared for you.

The property is currently undergoing some improvements to landscaping.

Will consider short term lease if required. We will also consider one night stays at an increased rate.

Yes the driveway is a bit narrow but I can get my larger car in and out too without scrapes, and we can drive right in and turn around now too.....we just need to be carfeul and not in a rush. Glad you enjoyed your stay in Launceston. Hope you can come again sometime.

  • This house is extremely convenient to the CBD, shops, supermarket, pubs and most of the sightseeing to be seen in Launceston. It's position close to the main highway makes it also convenient to all the surrounds of Launceston. We were able to leave our car in off street undercover parking and walk to all that we wished to do. The house is old but has lovely bones and is comfortable with all that is needed. The hot water was hot and had good pressure. The heating into the kitchen is lovely and warm and the panel heaters in the bedrooms worked well. So along with electric blankets provided it was possible to stay warm and cosy.
