Convenient and Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the afternoon at Fifty Five Davey St after travelling from Launceston via Freycinet National Park. We were thrilled with the central location and layout of the property. It was much appreciated to have a welcome package on our first night so that we didn't have to race out and buy supplies. When planning our trip I had emailed Nick and he gave me some great tips on where to eat and what to see. This was particularly important as we were there over New Year and we needed to pre book a lot of sight seeing and restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom luxurious. Our friend from Perth stayed downstairs and we had a room upstairs opposite the kitchen/ lounge area. I would highly recommend the property and definitely stay there again. Thanks Nick

We stayed here with friends to celebrate my husband's 50th. A beautiful building that has clearly been lovingly restored, and super close to Salamanca Markets, the wharves and the ferry to MONA. The entire place was tastefully decorated, and all the little extra touches made it feel even more special. Beds were comfy and the rooms were quiet enough that kids could sleep while adults continued talking. Nick was super easy to deal with. We will definitely be back!

Great location, and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and well located close to the waterfront and Salamanca Markets. Toasty heaters worked well, and the kitchen had a good selection of equipment including pod coffee machine and decently sharp knives. Davey St is a busy street, however the home has thick walls and is quiet. Owner has been friendly and responsive. Would stay again!
