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.

4 minutes to Launceston CBD (2.9km)

1 minute Trevallyn Grocer (specialty deli/cafe/supermarket) plus bakery/newsagent/pharmacy (1km)

2 minutes to Woolworths shopping centre (1.8km)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for families Perfect clean, warm house with amazing views over the Tamar river. The hosts have literately thought of everything that you could possibly need, one of the best stocked properties I have stayed at! Hosts were extremely accommodating with regards to young children and any questions were answered promptly. the bunnies and chooks were a big hit with the kids, will definitely book this property again if in Launceston!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place for families, home away from home! The owners of Forest Rd Have thought of everything that would make your stay comfortable - all the small details have been thought of and provided. We wish we could have stayed longer. Handy location not far from CBD, great views from beautiful big windows and kids loved seeing the rabbits at the bottom of the garden! You have set the benchmark for family friendly accomodation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place! We spent a gorgeous 3 nights at this lovely property. I am not exaggerating when I say the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible, from fresh coffee and milk, to a cupboard full of crafty goodies to occupy the kids, a box full of DVDs, muffin ingredients to cook up a storm, a great selection of wine, warm beds, and bunnies and chooks at the end of the garden! We are a family of 5 and it was perfect, we will definitely stay again next time we are in Tasmania!
