2014, 2015 & 2016 Winner TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

'Forest Road Apartments' - (118 reviews written by guests.. :114 rated 5-stars & 4 rated 4-stars)

92A is a refurbishment of the original 1950's house. We were lucky (unusually for its time) to find it had very large wooden picture windows along all the river-facing windows in the living room and two front bedrooms.

We've tried to maintain all the beautiful parts of the era including the curved ends of the hallway and fireplace, the hardwood kitchen cabinets wardrobes and the bakelite door handles, (like the old bakelite telephones of that time).

The first bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a queen, and a single bed. It also has a tv/dvd, (in case adults have taken over the living room).

On the south side of the apartment are a bathroom, separate toilet, another small bedroom with single bed, hall and kitchen. The kitchen has a second dining table, gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave and front-loader washing machine. The bathroom includes a bath as well as shower. Pantry includes various drygoods such as cereal, tea, coffee, flour, sugar.

The bathroom has a bath, shower vanity. Next door are toilet and a second vanity. ONE toilet in total. ONE shower in total. But across two rooms.

Parking is just outside on our side of the street for this apartment - just normal residential parking with no restrictions - the steps down are well lit at night. Amenities such as Foxtel, WIFI, large DVD library, /mini laptop/laser printer, washing machine, complimentary local calls, childrens' cupboard are common to both apartments.

You are very welcome to scavenge from the garden. The bottom garden with chooks and rabbits is a communal area. There are now six rabbits (mostly rescued from the RSPCA) in a 8x8m enclosure. You can walk into, sit and feed them. You'll have to wind your way down the bottom of the garden that faces the river to find this. The chooks do lay eggs. However, they roam the entire garden, so their nests can be very difficult to find. You are certainly welcome to any eggs you can find.

Barbeque area is available.

No other pets, no parties or smoking on the premises, please.

In the kitchen is a complimentary well stocked pantry which includes 4-types of cereal+ tea, coffee, herbal teas, flour, rice, etc. All linens plus shampoo, conditioner, shower gel are also provided, including down/feather doonas and electric blankets in winter.

We maintain a book with lots of suggestions for things to do, maps and brochures for you to take away.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at this apartment. The view from the living area and two main bedrooms was breathtaking. Owner literally thought of everything possible to make the stay comfortable (including baby toys in the cupboard). The place was very cozy and clean. Will definitely recommend to family and friends visiting Launceston.

Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property last month. The accommodation was bright and airy and all conveniences were considered. We were a family of 4 adults. The kitchen, living/family area was a really good size and was very comfortable. This property would be excellent for a young family. The garden with the hen and the bunnies to pet and feed was very therapeutic.

My family of 5 felt right at home in this lovely space. As soon as we walked in we felt right at home and the view from every room were amazing. The Bunnies in the back yard are a real treat for the kids. We seriously just loved this house!!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and cosy accommodation, convenient location so close to the city and easy to access main roads for day trips!

We stayed in Launceston and explored as far as cradle mountain and Hobart. At the end of the day it was so nice coming home to such a lovely apartment. The heater made the lounge room so cosy to sit and enjoy the wonderful view of the river and the quilt on the bed kept us warm through the night.

When we first arrived there were lights and heater on in the apartment and some milk in the fridge so we could sit down and enjoy a hot drink! Jo is so generous with the way the apartment is stocked and prepared for your stay.

We are already planning our next visit, this time with the kids. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Amazing place with amazing views across the river

  • 5 of 5

Can not recommend this place enough. Fantastic location, close to (2 minute drive) to fabulous little shopping centre containing bakery, grocery, bottle shop and post office.

We stayed with our two children (8 and 6) and all were catered for, with a large selection of DVD's, books, toys and of course the Bunnies located in the garden. Our girls could not get enough of seeing the bunnies on dawn and dusk and were sad to leave.

Jo was the most amazing host with the place also stocked with essentials such as tea, coffee, milk, breakfast cereals, washing detergent and powder, and the muffin suggestion with the ingredients supplied were fantastic

Short drive to UTAS to watch football and even shorter drive to City CBD and local sites, or just to sit and enjoy the endlest views across the horizon. We loved this place and would book again.
