Carmen, Russell & Raban are the friendliest hosts one could find. They welcomed me to their home immediately which is located 10-minute drive away from Hobart in Bellerive. Carmen and Russell provided all the information about Hobart and its surrounding areas and sights.
Their custom built, 5-star, gypsy wagon was so cosy that I fell asleep almost immediately when I jumped into its comfortable bed. In the morning, Carmen and the guys had made a delicious breakfast with toast, coffee, porridge and blueberries. All in all, you probably won't find a better place to stay in Hobart – highly recommended!
Thank you Jani! Great to hear that you have enjoyed your holiday in Tassie. You are welcome to stay in the Gypsy Wagon anytime again. Have a fantastic 2016!
Carmen, Russell & Raban are the friendliest hosts one could find. They welcomed me to their home immediately and provided me with lots of useful information about Hobart - Bellerive. Carmen picked me up at the airport and later gave me a lift to the city transit centre so that I could catch the coach to Launceston. Russell kindly helped me with the bike and Raban, who is one of the coolest kids I have ever met, showed me around.
Their gypsy wagon is simply wonderful from inside out. It is cozy, comfy and spacious, and has plenty of lovely decorations as well as informative books and brochures to explore the area. Staying in this special accommodation was pure bliss. Also, brekkies are very healthy.
Bellerive is only a 20-minute bus away from Hobart CBD and is a peaceful, picturesque area. Be sure to check out the quay and the Clarence Foreshore Trail.
Thank you Chiem, we are very glad you liked it here. We hope the Trip up North went well, too. All the best, Carmen & Co.
I had a lovely time staying in the gypsy wagon! The wagon is cosy and comfortable, with electricity and wifi. Carmen and her family were very welcoming and friendly, and made me feel right at home. There are convenient buses nearby that take you directly to the city centre, and Bellerive itself has plenty of local shops and cafes, as well as a beach and walking trails. Highly recommended!
Thank you Kathryn for staying with us. We hope you enjoyed your little Tour de Tasmania with your rental car, all the best, Carmen & Co.
Carmen's Rustic Gypsy Wagon is why people choose Air bnb!
First the hosts: Carmen and her family are the best! They welcomed me immediately, helped me integrate into Hobart, gave privacy or company as I directed, and were immediately available when I needed help. They are experienced, bi-lingual (German, Aussie), professional, interesting people. And their 8 year old son rocks! They go beyond what is expected to provide their guests an outstanding experience. This is a busy family that will make room for you if you wish, or give you space if that is what you prefer. They know Tassie well, have lots of travelers resource information in the wagon, and are generous with their guests.
The Wagon: A unique, custom built, wagon tucked into a blooming flower garden in a corner of their backyard. I loved it! The double bed is very comfortable, with nice bedding. It has electricity, wifi, an effective heater, fan, camp toilet, desk, shelving, a comfy chair. It met my needs very well. I also felt very welcome in their family home. A large full bath and well equipped kitchen were only steps away. Their wagon offered much more privacy than a bedroom in a house would, yet also gave me family interaction. Nice mix. I spent a month in the wagon solo and it was plenty of space. For a couple it would get cramped for that amount of time, but for a shorter stay it would be fine.
The Neighborhood: Bellerive is across the river from Hobart. It has its own village, is very close to an awesome beach, walking trails (walked in the steps of Charles Darwin!), has its own history, restaurants, market, shops, and a pro cricket oval. It is about a 10 minute drive to Hobart. I took the Metro bus, and found it easy and convenient to get anywhere I wanted to go including many tourist destinations.
Caveat: This family has a well behaved, friendly dog and sweet cat. If you have a strong allergy to dogs or cats, this might not be your place.
Overall: This is an awesome, unique stay with 5 star hosts! My highest recommendation.
Thank you so much Teresa for your great review! We are looking forward to seeing you again here in Tassie or further afield. Safe and happy travelling!
What a lovely experience. I was made to feel at home by Russel and introduced to my fun and comfortable bedroom.
Carmen and their delightful son came home later and were equally welcoming.
The garden is beautiful making this a lovely experience
Carmen, Raban and Russell were great hosts. They are a chilled out and friendly little family full of smiles. Raban was kind enough to give me a lesson in marine biology upon my departure, and in addition to being very comfortable during my stay I am now improved as a person and a little bit smarter thanks to this little guy. The Gypsy Caravan is full of character, and I enjoyed my quiet evenings sleeping snugly in the comfortable bed. I found that even in the cold, I was plenty warm, and the hospitality could not be topped. Delicious brekkie was served as well, and I say, I've learned a new grade of Airbnb host-skill from Carmen and Russell.
Thanks again! -Kelly
Carmen is the ideal airbnb guest. She is a great comunicator and left the place spotless clean. I had to travel overseas on short notice and she was so kind to help me out and prepare the place for the next guest. If one ever plans to visit tasmaina make sure to check out her listing under the title 'Rusitc Gypsy Wagon' https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/4903979 in Bellerive, TAS, Australia . I know I will!
Carmen and her lovely son Raban stayed for a couple of days at my place. Nice, gentle, funny and very relax mum & son making it a big pleasure to have them over to stay. Always welcome to return & I highly recommend them to every airbnb'er!
