About Jennifer Straughan
Hi, I'm Jennifer! My work as a workplace consultant & intuitive takes me across Oz. I draw upon my travel experiences (good and not so good) to ensure my guests have a great end to end experience and enjoy everything that this wonderful island has to offer! When I am not in a workplace working, I walk in the Tassie wilderness to regroup. I'm into meditation, well being, pilates, yoga, organic food and wine. I am a tea fiend and Nordic Noir addict.

Why Jennifer Straughan chose Grindelwald
The Ridge is located within the Tamar Ridge vineyard on the Tamar Wine route which is recognised as “One of the Top 10 Wine Routes in the world” Essential Travel magazine (UK). The apartment is modern architecturally designed with spectacular views across the Tamar Valley. I stayed here over 10 years ago when the complex was owned by Rosevears Estate and had a truly memorable experience. The location is easily accessible from Launceston Airport and also relatively easy to access all areas of northern Tassie.
What makes this Apartment unique
LOCATION The Ridge is located in a vineyard, 200 metres from the Tamar Ridge cellar but only 20 minutes drive from Launceston. Tamar Ridge vineyard and cellar door is set up as a winery complex which makes it quite a different "offer". Within this complex there are 16 apartments contained within 8 duplexes - all are modern architecturally designed and all are positioned well apart. POSITION The Ridge is positioned high above a ridge in the Tamar Valley with a vineyard and river landscape. It gives a sense of being in a tree house. PRIVACY My guests have described the apartment as “cleverly designed for privacy.” Guests have total private use of the apartment. I am not on site but available if you need me. THE OFFER The Ridge offers a quality Tasmanian experience with high service levels and a strong customer focus that represents value for money. The apartment has been upgraded with a modern kitchen, warm carpets, heating and furniture. EXPERIENCE - Flexibility - working in with my guests’ travel needs ie requests for early check ins or late checkouts specifically where guest have late flights or early arrivals (ie from the ferry). Wherever possible I will try to accommodate them - the more notice the better as I need to schedule my amazing caretaker. - Standards of cleanliness - I have a professional cleaning service which adopts best practice in hotel cleaning standards. For longer stayz the apartment is cleaned every 3 days and linen and towels changed unless you request another arrangement. - Communication - Communication is critical for putting you at ease and enhancing your overall experience. I share my local knowledge and compliment this with a range of books about the local area and tourist information (pamphlets). - The extra details – The apartment has fresh flowers, fresh milk, a range of Twinings teas, high count linen, quality towels and glassware and more ... I truly hope you have a great Tassie HomeAway Stayz!

This property lived up to all that was advertised about it, really lovely and in a convenient location would stay there again
Beautiful apartment with good views. Would highly recommend to others.
Great View and Location
The property was well stocked and clean and comfortable. The view over the vineyard was great, the bed comfortable. We appreciated the spices and stocked kitchen and enjoyed grilling on the barbecue! My husband noticed a couple of maintenance issues (broken light switches, etc.) that may need some attention.
We loved that we were so close to the wineries and to downtown Launceston. (you will want a car). Overall we absolutely enjoyed the area and our stay at Tamar River properties. What a great view!
Luxury among the vines
Lovely apartment- perfect location, spotless, well equipped with everything we needed for a short stay. Daily visits by the wallabies was an added bonus!
Great communication from the owner both before and during our stay. Will definitely stay again if we get another opportunity.
A beautifully appointed property.
From the moment you drive into the vineyard you will be impressed. The property in located only a short stroll from the cellar door. This apartment is privately situated overlooking the Tamar River and vineyard. The apartment is luxurious and tastefully decorated. It’s is spotlessly clean. And Jenn has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The cupboards are stocked with basic pantry items and she has included laundry products as well. We had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend this beautiful property. Jenn is a real delight and is fastidious in making sure your stay is perfect. Great value for money. We have travelled around Tassie and Tamar Ridge has been our highlight!
