Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!
A beautiful apartment with the most amazing views both during the day and at night. The interior was extreemly clean and beautifully presented. Very good sized bedrooms and well equipped kitchen. A five minute walk to a park and cafes. Easy parking out the front.
Peter was very accommodating upon our arrival, assisting us with our luggage and setting up a portable cot for my daughter. He was extremely knowledgeable about things to do and see in the area, especially some fantastic places to eat.
This is a place I didn't want to leave and long to return to. Don't go to Launceston without staying here!
House was perfectly presented and had everything you could need. It was convenient being so close to town and with such nice views. Peter was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our stay.
Great house in great location! Amazing views, it was lovely sitting on the balcony watching the sunset over Launceston! Little things like good free wifi, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer are definitely welcomed if you've been on the road for a while! Peter was very accommodating, can't go wrong with this house!
We could not have been happier with Peters house. It was impeccably clean and we are very fussy. We have travelled all over the world with Airbnb and Peters house is one of the best we have stayed in. The decor is lovely and well thought out, the house is so light and full of character. The restoration Peter has achieved is top notch. The location in Launceston is so central and surrounded by lovely houses. It is also quiet and peaceful . Our four year old also loved the house so I would say it is definitely child friendly as well as suiting the older traveller. Thank you Peter for sharing your beautiful home.

Peter was the perfect host, he was super flexible with our arrival time and made us feel welcome from the start. The house itself was fantastic! Very well put together and luxurious. Perfect location with great views of the rest of Launceston, close to the city centre and all amenities. We couldn't ask for more and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone travelling to Launceston.
This review was written by my husband, who, along with his mother, stayed in Peter's cottage the first night after arriving in Tasmania.
If you want to have an inexpensive stay in a sturdily built, well-appointed colonial home (built in 1830) in Launceston, then I fully recommend Peter's cottage. The cottage is on a quiet street in a high position, and is furnished tastefully throughout (and very clean). All the rooms have high ceilings, and the living/dining/kitchen area is particularly well lit with natural light coming through the many windows. Peter was on hand to greet us and let us in. He told us about the history of his house, and how its appearance has changed over time. He left us some starter provisions in the fridge (milk, bread, etc) and in the kitchen (fruit, coffee, etc). One of Peter's immediate neighbours later welcomed my mother and me to Launceston (seeing us arrive back in our hire car after dinner), which made us feel both happy and guilty--for not staying longer! (At noon the next day we had to head off to Cradle Mountain where we had a two-night booking.) The only problem with Peter's cottage (and it wasn't much of a problem) is the fact that it faces west. The front verandah was too sun-drenched in the afternoon to spend much time on--the sun was too bright (although the warmth was welcome). All up though, a great place to call home during our brief visit.
The reservation was canceled 34 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Peter was happy to welcome us, and help us, and did so with a genuine carving attitude. He was happy to check in on us to see if he could help us with anything further.
Peter's airbnb studio was the best! I booked mid afternoon & arrived some 4 hrs later. Peter greeted me warmly and was attentive in ensuring I had everything I needed & answered my questions. The apartment is immaculate, light, & every attention to detail has been made! As it's an upstairs studio, views of the garden through the windows were glorious - as was the beautiful flowering crabapple!
I will definitely be staying again & most highly recommend this space to travelers.
We spent a night at Launceston and were so glad to have rented Peter's cosy studio room. Location was strategic. Room was so comfortable (especially the bed!) and you'll have all the privacy as it is detached from the main house. Peter was such a great and friendly host. You can rely on him for ideas on places to visit and great places for food too. We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again soon.
