About the property

Winner TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

'Forest Road Apartments' - (118 reviews:104 rated 5-stars & 4 rated 4-stars)

We added 92C in December 2011 .. the main reason was to make use of the beautiful view and our location on the sunny side of the river. Most of the materials were recycled.

*Note: one toilet, one shower in total ... just across two separate below for more detail

We are under five minutes' drive to the CBD and have delis, cafes, restaurants and various parks all around us, including The Cataract Gorge, just up the road.

Free NBN WIFI & Foxtel (all channels), magazines, large selection of current dvds

In the first bedroom there is a wall-mounted tv that is linked through to a dvd player, (in case adults have taken over the living room).

In the second bedroom, part of the walk-in robe is dedicated to things for children of various ages. We have boxes of lego and duplo, games, books and a large range of books and current dvd's.

In the kitchen is a well stocked complimentary 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 king sized feather doonas and electric blankets.

The shower room has a vanity. Across the hall is a separate toilet and vanity. There is ONE toilet and ONE shower in total... just across two separate rooms.

You are very welcome to scavenge from the garden. The bottom garden with chooks and rabbits is a communal area. There are now five rabbits (mostly rescued from the RSPCA) in a 8x8m enclosure you can walk into, sit and feed the rabbits. 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.

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

4 minutes to Launeston CBD (2.9km)

1 minute to Specialty deli/cafe plus bakery/newsagent/pharmacy (1km)

2 minutes to Woolworths shopping centre (1.8km)

A beautifully presented apartment with many thoughtful little touches throughout. Love the Bunnies!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so welcomed as we first entered by little notes through out the apartment and even warm towels ready in the bathroom. Plenty of craft & games to keep the kiddies busy and of course the garden bunnies were a hit!

Such a comfortable stay with a stunning view of the river, we want to return to Launceston just to stay here again

Jo’s a great host. Everything you could want is there. Forgot shampoo, no worries there’s Pantene in the bathroom.

Want to bake muffins but don’t have any flour, eggs, anything! That’s ok, jo has the lot for you to use.

Did anyone pack the board games? That’s ok, there’s like 9 to choose from.

Candles for a candle lit dinner... check

Took the kids to the aquatic centre and now all their clothes smell like chlorine, why don’t you wash them in the machine, with the Omo provided.

Foxtel.. check

Wine to buy at wholesale prices... check

Oh and did I mention the bunnies?

Well they are the best bit.

We will be back. Again. For the third time.

Love it

Exceptional Experience & Not to Miss this lovely apartment in Launceston

  • 5 of 5

Jo has been so thoughtful and way over our expectation as our host. And yet she is striving for perfectionist and ask for areas of improvement (which is very hard to spot honestly). During our stay, my son loves the bunnies feeding and the lego collection. My hubby love your large kitchen and outdoor BBQ. I enjoy the raspberry muffin baking. We wish we stay for longer to enjoy the wonderful apartment more. We highly recommended to any families visiting Launceston. My mother in law says special thank you and wish you and the bunnies all the best. We will definitely come back for our next Launceston holidays.

Such a delight

  • 5 of 5

This was a delightful place to stay. My teenages can be fussy and they settled straight away.

The comfort is 5 star, the bunnies a complete joy and the views are to die for.

We will be back for sure !

Absolute heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Forest Road apartments. From the moment we walked in to see the stunning view we were in heaven. We also found a very yummy treat and note from Jo as well as fresh eggs and breakfast goodies. Jo has thought of everything you could possibly need plus more. The kids adored the bunnies, hunting for chook eggs and the very memorable toy cupboard. Close to the city and other attractions. Perfect spot to zip into town for an early morning coffee too! We had the best time and would love to come back. Thank you so much Jo.
