"This wonderfully located house made our holiday. We appreciated the excellent decor, lovingly chosen, the inclusions in the house are a standard rarely seen in rental holiday houses. Thank you for the welcome basket and the additional household requirements - much appreciated. We would love to come back."

"Thank you for accommodating us in your beautiful home. We really appreciated the gorgeous treats on arrival and had a wonderful stay in Hobart. We wish this was our home. The amenities were above and beyond. Would highly recommend your home to everyone! Thanks again."
The Melbourne Girls, Oct 2015
"Thanks for sharing your fantastic house. The group had a great time."
SF Oct 2015
"Howdy! This place is honestly so lovely we are all super impressed (and there are nine of us so impressing all of us is not easy). You've literally thought of everything you could possibly need on holiday and given us the most incredible temporary home. Thank you so much for the experience we are all extremely grateful."
"This house has earned more than five stars. Granted it was not all due to the house as I must admit exploring Hobart has been great and everything we have seen so far has been amazing. The house though is still a highlight. Thanks so much we have loved staying here!!"
G and MC Nov 2015
"It felt like a privilege to stay in your beautiful home, everything about it was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all the 'extras'. We could start enjoying it as soon as we arrived, very relaxing. We have had a great time. Thank you."
