About this listing

We are a Heritage listed 1857 building, containing 3 apartments and our home. This is a great old building so close to the front beach and right in the old part of the village! (The calendar will show booked, even if the 2 other apartments aren't booked, so it is worth asking anyway. thanks)

The space

This is just a lovely place to stay. Our building is in the centre of the old part of the village. If you look either East or West, the view down the street hasn't really changed in 100 years! Smillie St. is the "heritage street", it is just about 100m from "Front Beach" and just a very short walk from shops, cafes and the two pubs. (and I do mean a short walk!) Each of our townhouses has a first floor bedroom with queen size bed. Ground floor has a living room with heating and pass through the old wall to a second bed / kitchen / dining and the bathroom. This is an old building and as such, is a bit quirky. We have the main bedroom upstairs which opens out onto the verandah (some have doors but others will have to pop out the window!) On a Summer afternoon, the verandah is just the place to sit or have a drink. Canvas blinds can divide the spaces off from each other on the 30m verandah. The Kitchen opens out onto the courtyard where guests can relax on the sun beds or enjoy the BBQ and table and chairs. The courtyard is bordered on the South, by the old stable buildings and as such, is thoroughly private from the streets.

Guest access

All our guests may use the courtyard. The BBQ is under cover, as is the table and chairs, all under the 100 year old apple tree. We have seating, sun beds and umbrella and a large coin operated washing machine that will handle all your towels and clothes.

Interaction with guests

Jude and I live in our house at the other end of the building and are here to receive and help our guests.

Other things to note

We have successfully operated for 7 years now and so much of that has been due to the level of respect that our guests provide for each other. We have found that everyone has enjoyed the experience of the shared courtyard and so we would expect that this should continue for all our sakes.

Thank you to Jude and Tim. We had a lovely stay in your beautiful townhouse. It was perfect for a mini escape with my daughter and my sister. The beds were super comfy and we had all the amenities we needed. A special thank you for helping us out when we had a flat battery. We hope to be back soon. Bianca, Briony and LJ

We stayed in one of Tim's apartments over Easter and loved every second of it. The interior of the apartment and its garden is beautifully decorated and looks stylish and yet very homely and has everything you need for your vacation. Tim is a great host and we'll definitely book one of his apartments again next time we are in Robe!

The Robe Art Apartments was a great place for my colleague and I to stay during a two day conference. beds were comfortable. The atmosphere was welcoming, from entering the apartment via the shared garden and outdoor dining/BBQ area to the well appointed and tastefully modernised interior of this historic building. Everything was clean and the hosts friendly and helpful. I highly recommend anyone wishing to stay here.

Jude qualified in Adelaide in Fine Art and specialises as a print maker. We now run the Robe art apartments and "Ocean Belle" for our building with a view of the ocean.
