From the moment we entered the apartment and saw the wall to wall view of the Tamar river and valley through the living room windows, we were happy. The couches in the living room were comfortable and the games and DVDs kept the children occupied. The bedrooms were clean, the beds freshly made up and there was plenty of cupboard space for those who felt like unpacking. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils and cooking equipment needed for a short or long stay. We also made use of the BBQ facilities during our stay. As we arrived on New Year's Day when everything was closed, we were pleasantly surprised to find milk in the fridge and cereals in the cupboard for our breakfast the next morning. My daughters also found the recipe for raspberry muffins, with all the ingredients they needed supplied, and set to baking within the first hour of our arrival. A visit to the resident rabbits and chickens in the back yard was also a highlight for the children. The apartment is only a few minutes drive from Launceston's CBD and very close to Cataract Gorge as well. Information on local shops and restaurants, local - and not so local attractions and wineries were also available.
Thank you to our hosts Jo and Brian for a fantastic start to our Tasmanian holiday.
