  • Description


    We are a family of three. Matt and Kim, and daughter, Myra aged 16. We work from home, and attend client appointments across North and North West Tasmania. Our home is on just under an acre of garden and we are working hard on garden maintenance and planning at present, and re-establishing our vegetable garden. Our home is in Devonport - the base of the Spirit of Tasmania ferry from Melbourne. Our home location provides easy access to beaches, the city centre, and is an ideal base from which to explore Cradle Mountain.

    We have a nice room available with sofa. Guests will need to share our bathroom. The laundry and kitchen are available for guest use, and guests are welcome to join our family meals. The room is available for one or two nights, or longer - we are very flexible. We will do our best to make our guests feel at home in a relaxed environment - to come and go and treat the space as their own. The guest room and garden provide plenty of space for retreat and privacy.
