storied homes hosting specialist story

My Story.

All through my life I have enjoyed travelling and seeing new places but with a growing family travel was curtailed slightly and I began exploring my home state of Tasmania. This rekindled my love and appreciation of Tasmania as it struck me that there are so many beautiful, diverse and story-rich nooks all over this tiny island of ours.

Up until I had my children I had a very demanding but enjoyable corporate career in finance and with the explosion of online booking platforms such as Airbnb and Homeaway I saw and still see an opportunity to combine all of the things that I love with the skill sets that I have developed over my career.

Having hosted many guests and stayed in many properties I could see a gap in the service offering between property management and hosting management. I quickly realised that a traditional property management approach cannot be applied in this new hosting landscape. Guests expect a more personal approach when they stay in a home and they choose this over a traditional hotel stay. I started Storied Homes in 2020 (yes smack bang in the middle of a global pandemic) knowing that now is a great time to reset and refocus in time for us all to start travelling again. It’s also been so lovely to see Tasmanian’s explore their home state and rekindle that love and appreciation that I had found.

I truly believe there is so much potential in this space if it’s done well.

It would be my greatest pleasure and an absolute honour to manage your home and interact with your guests whilst maximising the return on your investment and allowing you the time and financial freedom to create your own magical and successful life.

Warmest regards

“Fantastic location, very private thought we were in another world. House beautifully decorated with quality furnishings and fittings. Ideal for a romantic weekend or a getaway with another couple. Nothing beats a lazy Saturday in the sun on the deck with with wine and cheese and the water at your door. We will definitely be recommending to friends and will be going back.” Renee

“We wish we could have stayed longer. The home is the most beautiful place to spend a few days. The views are to die for, you feel as if you are miles away from anywhere, totally relaxing and luxurious.. The home has been so well thought out and the attention to detail is amazing. So many lovely personal touches that make this property stand out by far. Samantha was a fantastic host and very quick to communicate. The home was spotlessly clean and very very well maintained. Two beautiful queen bedrooms each with ensuite and free standing bath. If you are thinking about staying here do yourself a favour and book now you will not be disappointed. We cant wait to visit again. Absolutely magical place” Shannon


“The cottage is spotless, beds very comfortable and the styling gorgeous. We all felt so at home. We loved staying at your place, probably the best air bnb I’ve stayed at. The location right on the beach is stunning, beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend this place to stay and will be back when I can.” Julie


“This place is more than just a place to stay. The attention to detail and quality are outstanding. Two nights here really topped off an amazing trip to Tasmania’s east coast and provided a 5 star experience. Very thoughtfully provisioned and exquisitely decorated. Nothing is missing.” Jacob


“Thanks for our lovely stay at your place. We really loved all the care and detail you put into your house from the gorgeous art to the pillows and throws. Our children fell asleep in front of the fire and everyone was very happy for the night. They loved the puzzles and toys and our daughter left a bead design for you saying “happy vibes”. Thanks again” Stephanie
