“As good as it gets”

Perfectly located and appointed accommodation in Launceston. The outlook and views, particularly at night, are spectacular. The house is a lovely period home, and contains everything that is needed, with high quality furnishings and fittings, including the huge bonus of washing machine and dryer. Spotlessly clean and extremely quiet surroundings. Great parking just outside and very short walk down into town and all shops, restaurants and other amenities. Owner met us personally on arrival, greatly appreciated. All in all one of the very best holiday rental experiences ever. Very very highly recommended!

“Well located and appointed”
Reviewed July 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Excellent heating in both bedrooms, kitchen / living area. The hot water system also worked well for showers.
There is a meals area with table / chairs and couches in the living area with TV. Free fast WiFi is a bonus.
Other equipment includes fridge / freezer, microwave, hotplate, oven, dishwasher, washing machine.
Well located walking distance from CBD and also has a view due to its elevation. It is also a quiet street with not much traffic.

There is parking for 2 cars in bays in front of the house on the road.
Thanks Peter for being such an accommodating host and we will certainly be keen to stay in Welman Cottage again next time we are in Launceston.

“Would definitely stay again”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Very comfortable, modernised, with everything we needed. Fairly close to the main CBD. A top little cafe just around the corner. Great views from the balcony. Peter was very easy to deal with and would recommend his properties to anyone.

“Well thought out renovation.”
Reviewed November 7, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great views of the city of Launceston from this cottage.I stayed with my extended family and we were inspired by the renovation.Might be a bit of a hike up the hill with small children as it is a great place to leave the car and walk.Clean,fresh and well equipped all around.Thankyou to the owners for sharing this gem.

“Superb base in Launceston”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Spent three nights here and could not fault the cottage. Spotless, lots of air and light, two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and comfortably furnished. High speed internet (NBN), wide district and river views, quiet. and peaceful. Hills to climb if not driving but close to lots of dining options. Owner is friendly and accommodating.
Highly recommended.

This is a beautifully renovated cottage suitable for up to two couples. The owner is very helpful. It's in a great location, an easy drive or walk to many of Launceston's attractions.
