92A is a refurbishment of the original 1950's house. We were lucky unusually for its time to find it had very large wooden picture windows along all the river-facing windows in the living room and two front bedrooms.

We've tried to maintain all the beautiful parts of the era including the curved ends of the hallway and fireplace, the hardwood kitchen cabinets wardrobes and the bakelite door handles, like the old bakelite telephones of that time.

The first bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a queen, and a single bed. It also has a tv/dvd, in case adults have taken over the living room.

On the south side of the apartment are a bathroom, separate toilet, another small bedroom with single bed, hall and kitchen. The kitchen has a second dining table, gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave and front-loader washing machine. The bathroom includes a bath as well as shower. Pantry includes various drygoods such as cereal, tea, coffee, flour, sugar.

The bathroom has a bath, shower vanity. Next door are toilet and a second vanity.

Parking is just outside on our side of the street for this apartment - just normal residential parking with no restrictions - the steps down are well lit at night. Amenities such as Foxtel, WIFI, large DVD library, /mini laptop/laser printer, washing machine, complimentary local calls, childrens' cupboard are common to both apartments.

You are very welcome to scavenge from the garden. The bottom garden with chooks and rabbits is a communal area. There are now six rabbits mostly rescued from the RSPCA in a 8x8m enclosure. You can walk into, sit and feed them. You'll have to wind your way down the bottom of the garden that faces the river to find this. The chooks do lay eggs. However, they roam the entire garden, so their nests can be very difficult to find. You are certainly welcome to any eggs you can find.

Barbeque area is available.

No other pets, no parties or smoking on the premises, please.

In the kitchen is a complimentary well stocked pantry which includes 4-types of cereal+ tea, coffee, herbal teas, flour, rice, etc. All linens plus shampoo, conditioner, shower gel are also provided, including down/feather doonas and electric blankets in winter.

We maintain a book with lots of suggestions for things to do, maps and brochures for you to take away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing place with amazing views across the river Can not recommend this place enough. Fantastic location, close to (2 minute drive) to fabulous little shopping centre containing bakery, grocery, bottle shop and post office. We stayed with our two children (8 and 6) and all were catered for, with a large selection of DVD's, books, toys and of course the Bunnies located in the garden. Our girls could not get enough of seeing the bunnies on dawn and dusk and were sad to leave. Jo was the most amazing host with the place also stocked with essentials such as tea, coffee, milk, breakfast cereals, washing detergent and powder, and the muffin suggestion with the ingredients supplied were fantastic Short drive to UTAS to watch football and even shorter drive to City CBD and local sites, or just to sit and enjoy the endlest views across the horizon. We loved this place and would book again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Stay What a great stay! Five of us stayed here and really enjoyed it the views are fabulous and it was really well equipped. We loved the fresh herbs and the small details like brekkie cereals etc. Only request would be for a top sheet on beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best place for holiday accomodation We had our best holiday at Jo's apartment. Jo was so accomodating and very friendly. The place was clean, spacious and amazing views. Whole cabinet of toys and bunnies at garden were also a big hit with our toddler. Strategic location near to Cataract Gorge, Royal Penny and City Launceston. Big supermarket within 1km away. Definitely will stay here again on our next visit.

Ideal for families and anyone wanting a quiet place to relax and look at the view. The rabbits kept our kids occupied and there was everything we needed to have a lovely stay in Launceston. Would highly recommend.
