Budget priced double-bed room in a friendly suburban home. Off-street parking, NBN WiFi, bedding, towels, electric blanket, heater, desk & chair. Ingredients for a light breakfast. Suit 1 or 2 people who can appreciate this room in our busy, unique 'cheap & cheerful' family home! Share bathroom, toilet & laundry. Profile pic showing your face required. Please confirm that you AND 2nd guest HAVE read ALL my detailed description (Click on 'Read more about the space') or I'll request you to do so!
The quiet, comfortable Airbnb guest room in my vibrant, busy and unique Peel Street West Launceston family home offers you an economical alternative to being in a backpacker hostel or camping. We are actually cheaper than a tent site at the local caravan park!!
My home is welcoming, friendly, cheap & cheerful and, some say, a bit unconventional, quirky and cluttered, and my private areas of it may not be as neat and tidy as your home is! Please DON'T book to stay here if you will find this unacceptable, as I care about my guests, and need to know that their expectations will be met. My many belongings ARE in full view! We are NOT a hotel, you are staying in a room in MY home with no pretense of pristine luxury, and this is reflected in the affordable price I charge for the budget conscious traveller. We are actually cheaper than a tent site at the local caravan park!!!
My Airbnb listing is best suited for independent, easy going travelers who appreciate the quirks of my budget-priced, friendly and vibrant place, don't criticise my messy clutter, understand that they will be sharing facilities (inc bathroom) with other residents, and that this is a vibrant and busy family home.
We are a busy, vibrant household with people 'on the go' at all times, and WE LIVE HERE TOO!! As well as myself and my 30 year old son (Ariel), a Chinese student (Will) also lives in my home (so Mandarin Chinese as well as English is spoken). Sometimes there is a friend or Helpx helper also staying here!
Like most Australian families, we have pets. Two cats, "Kilara" and "George", also live here, but they keep to themselves, and we have some chooks that just roam in the garden.
Free NBN WiFi available.
My kitchen is NOT part of the Airbnb listing.
We are LGBTIQ / Gay Friendly.
We are in a safe, quiet suburban neighborhood with off-street parking provided in a designated spot beside my house.
As we are on an 'internal block' behind the house facing the street, there is a long gravel driveway to access my property. Please drive slowly and carefully when you enter and leave my driveway, there is a bit of a 'dip' at the street end.
Children OK, if sharing your bed.
Your room, which also has a separate door opening onto an outdoor verandah area, is bright, quiet, neat, tidy and clean. It is suitable for either a single person or a couple, as there is only one (double) bed in it, and no space to add another. The room has a heater, desk and chair, mirror, cupboards, bedside lights, and a comfortable double bed with an electric blanket and good bedding. Tourist information, reading material, free book exchange, towels and toiletries are also supplied.
Ingredients for a light breakfast, use of a small fridge, microwave and tea/coffee/toast making facilities are provided for you in a utility room close to your bedroom.
I provide freshly laundered towels and bed linen, and your room is neat, clean and tidy. If you accidentally make a mess in the bathroom or toilet, there are cleaning supplies provided for your use.
When booking, please indicate that you, and the 2nd guest (if there is one), HAVE read ALL my detailed description by writing "Yes, I read all your detailed description" or I will request you to do so before I accept your booking.
Please let me know the NAMES of ALL guests and make sure you have a clear photo of all guest's faces. I like to know who is arriving to stay with us here! .
I don't charge you an extra cleaning fee or bond, to keep my prices low and affordable.
There is no en-suite (you will be SHARING the bathroom, toilet and other facilities with all of the other household residents), but my Airbnb room is priced accordingly and I offer guests great value for money for the budget-conscious traveller who appreciates staying in a local family home, and the amenities I make available for them.
These include providing ingredients for a light breakfast, fruit, tea and coffee, toiletries, tourist information, reading material and a 'book exchange', as well as laundry facilities on request.
You can come and go as you like, and have total privacy in your room, but this IS a vibrant and busy household with visitors visiting and people on the go at all hours... though your bedroom is at the quiet end of the house, with a lock on the door and a key, ensuring privacy when you are in or away from the room.
Free NBN WiFi Internet available.
All facilities are shared, including toilet, bathroom (with shower and separate bathtub) and laundry (which has a modern washing machine and dryer, plus washing powder, for you to use, as well as an iron and ironing board).
A small fridge, with its own little freezer, plus tea/coffee making facilities, a microwave oven, a toaster, sandwich toaster and ingredients (bread, cereals, jams & spreads, fruit, milk, tea and coffee) for a light breakfast are provided for you in the laundry/utility room, next-door to your bedroom, so you can help yourself whenever you like!
PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION! My home is in West Launceston, a suburb about 10 minutes drive from the CBD, and about 20 minutes from the airport, and like most of Launceston, we are on a HILL and the street is STEEP. We are NOT in the CBD, but are an easy, short drive away.
PLEASE note that my exact location is pinned on the map with my listing, so before you book check this carefully, so there will be no need for YOU to make a mistake on 'location' and unfairly penalise me for this!! I get VERY upset when I find that guests give me a lower 'star rating' for 'Location' because they made a mistake when they chose to stay here, or didn't bother to find the exact address on the map and complain that we were 'hard to find' or that I didn't give you the correct address. There is a large sign on a tree at my letterbox that the entrance is 'this driveway' and this is also written in Chinese at the bottom of the sign!
There is a local bus service, and a bus stop just up the road, but we ARE in the suburbs, not in the city, so there are no shops or restaurants in my immediate neighborhood.. but there are a couple of supermarkets and places to eat a short drive away.
I can usually arrange to collect you from central Launceston on request.
To get to my home from the airport, there is a taxi (about $45) and shuttle bus service ($25 per person). I can often arrange an airport pick and/or delivery (for $20 per journey each way).
My home is number 91A, it is on an INTERNAL BLOCK, access is via the LOWER driveway, DOWN THE HILL from house number 91 and DIRECTLY beside it. I am located BEHIND that house! There is a sign on a tree at the beginning of my long gravel driveway saying "91A Entrance This Driveway". Call or message me if you need more directions.
LOCATION. Please note, I am being extremely accurate about my location... we are in the SUBURBS, not the city! West Launceston is an appealing, safe neighborhood about 10 minutes drive from the CBD and about 20 minutes from the AIRPORT. Like most of Launceston, we are on a HILL. There is a long gravel driveway from the street to my home, which is located on an 'internal block' so is not visible from the street. There is a sign on a tree near my letterbox, saying '.... this driveway....'.
